News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

GOLF

Unfortunately, Ben Schlottman's run in the U.S. Amateur championship ended, yesterday. He fell in the Round of 32.

SOCCER

Soccer begins tonight! They're also playing a highly ranked Clemson team in their first game of the year. Don't forget AU_Jonesy's preview of the team.

FOOTBALL

Rhett Lashlee met with the media after practice, yesterday. There wasn't any new info on the quarterback race, but there was some good news on the injury front.

Cole Cubelic examined the possibilities of Tony Stevens in a film room session. Stevens has been injured, lately, though he reportedly is close to coming back onto the practice field. The young receivers, meanwhile, are off to a fast start in practices. That shouldn't be surprising given their high rankings and that, for once, Auburn signed an entire class of wide receivers who were actually wide receivers and not converted quarterbacks.

Byron Cowart was hurt by Marlon Davidson jumping him on the depth chart in the spring. He's renewed his efforts in the summer and is improving, gaining confidence, and ready to show why he was as highly ranked in recruiting as he was.

Devaroe Lawrence, one of the most impressive defensive linemen late last season, is pumped about the first game of the year. He's a native of Greenville, South Carolina, and really wants to beat the local team.

At running back, Kam Martin is expected to provide a big boost for the Tigers as the speed back. Martin, though small, is not going to redshirt this season. His speed and abilities to make big plays will be something needed from the running back slot.

Can, um, can we pump the breaks on comments like this one, Terry Henley? The former Tiger said that he has a better chance of outrunning Usain Bolt than Clemson does of beating Auburn. I mean, what distance are we talking? Usain Bolt would destroy me on sprints, but I have a feeling he may not be able to hold up over the 10-13 mile range, so it's conceivable Henley could outrun him, there.

Finally, it hurts, but here's WarRoom Eagle's first post over at 247Sports. It's paywalled, though, so unless you have an account over there, you can't read it.
