News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

BASEBALL

A former Tiger is returning home to help out as a "Student Assistant." Former SEC Player of the Year Hunter Morris will help out Doug Sisson when it comes to getting the Tigers to put the bat on the ball.

BASKETBALL

Scout has released their first class rankings for the 2017 recruiting class. Guess who is currently sitting at #1 in the nation?

GYMNASTICS

Former Tigers head coach Robert Dillard passed away last night. He was one of the pioneers in the sport in the state of Alabama.

SOFTBALL

There is someone saying this year's Women's College World Series finale was one of the best championships ever, in any sport.

SOCCER

The 2016 schedule is out, and it's a tough one. There will be eight teams who made the NCAA Tournament last season that Auburn will face.

FOOTBALL

We got another commitment! From a long snapper. Hey, it's an important position. Whether he'll be an official part of the class or will gray shirt remains to be seen.

There have been a couple more of SEC Country's "Most Important Tiger" articles, recently. Yesterday, the focus was on Kamryn Pettway. I can't wait to see him carry the ball more. The only way I can describe what he did in the A-Day game is that he ran angry.

What has Rhett Lashlee learned in his three years as offensive coordinator for the Tigers? He spoke to SEC Country about his time on the Plains.

ESPN says Auburn's "Must Win" game of the season is September 17th against Texas A&M. It's hard to argue that, really. Auburn could be staring down starting the year 3-0, 2-1, or 1-2 at that point. If they're 0-2 and looking at a possible 0-3, then we'll really know we're in trouble. Winning that game should give the Tigers a boost no matter where they're at, though.

Just how much has cost of attendance helped out on the recruiting trail? See what Auburn's coaches have to say about it. It's especially poignant for Auburn since the school has one of the highest COA allowances.

Oh, hey, and then there's this:

IRON BOWL RIVALRY

How did Auburn and Alabama's sporting teams fare against each other this season? Pretty evenly, overall. The slight edge goes to the Tigers.
