News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASEBALL

I finally got around to my recap for the baseball team last night when I discovered a copy of the deleted draft on my home computer. It wasn't a perfect weekend, but the Tigers did take two out of three against the #22 team in the nation!

BASKETBALL

Bruce Pearl held his third annual "Fore the Children Golf Classic" to benefit Children's Harbor.

Auburn added another big man to the roster yesterday afternoon with the commitment of grad transfer LaRon Smith of Bethune-Cookman. He led the nation in blocks last season, so, yeah, we're quite happy with this.

SOFTBALL

The ladies didn't get a chance to redeem themselves and attempt to take a game from Tennessee as weather caused the cancellation of Monday's Game 3, so Auburn was "swept" by the Vols in this one.

The SEC Network looks back at Clint Meyer's impact on Auburn Softball and how he's taken the team from one of the worst in the conference to one of the best in the nation in just a few short years.

FOOTBALL

I'm sure you know by now, but some Auburn football players got into some trouble over the weekend. Yes, it's annoying. No, they shouldn't have done it. However, it's about as minor of an infraction as there is in that realm, and read my article to see what Gus has done with similar instances in the past.

Robert Leff has been a career back-up on Auburn's offensive line. He got his chance to see major action last season when Shon Coleman was injured a few times, and he was also a key cog in Auburn's heavy package. Now he'll be taking over as the starting right tackle in his final season, and he can't wait.

Tim Horton shed some light on who is the front-runner in the RB race, last night. Yes, it's who you think and want it to be. Now hopefully we don't inexplicably pull him from games at strange times. Meanwhile, Auburn wants Kerryon Johnson to be a bit more physical this year. Kerryon has a chance to be a very special back for us, and I can't wait to see more of him on the field.

Which SEC football players who were undrafted are the best, according to ESPN? Auburn has two players on that list, and they're probably pretty obvious.

Hey, the draft just ended, so let's go ahead and look at next year's draft! AL.com examines the potential picks from Auburn next season. I'll give you my own prediction of it: Auburn will equal the three players drafted in 2016 in 2017's draft from the defensive line alone. Lawson, Lawrence, and Adams will all be drafted, and they may not be the only D-linemen to be drafted.

PrimeSport will be the official fan travel partner for Auburn Alumni Association and Tigers Unlimited. I used them on my own for the Rose Bowl trip, my brother used them for Glendale, and I have to say neither of us had anything but good to say about them, so that's a good thing.
