News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports


Whew, boy, it was a busy day here at College and Magnolia, yesterday. We had a ton of articles posted. Here's a quick rundown of them:

Oscar Whiskey returned with his Whiskey Wednesday column. Read about his experience watching his first Auburn football game and the hope of a new season.

Ryan Sterritt previewed his Sterritt Score rankings, which are coming back for Year 2. If you're unfamiliar with how it works, then check out his primer on it. How accurate were his rankings last year? Well, the #1 and #2 teams at the end of the regular season were Clemson and Alabama.

Gus Malzahn took part in the SEC's weekly coaches teleconference. I tried to gather the relevant tweets from the call and put them into a post for your perusal. There's not much but there is a little bit of new information in there.

Sean White isn't exactly the typical Auburn QB-bot in the mold of Chris Todd, Barrett Trotter, Brandon Cox (who is still one of my favorite QBs at Auburn), etc. He has some moves that may surprise you. In fact, he's one of the most agile players on the team.

The tradition of rolling Toomer's Corner will be born again this fall. The school wants to make sure you know exactly what you can and can't roll, though. We have to protect the rest of Samford Park, including the 10 descendant Oaks.

Football is back! Not just a game or two, but a full complete schedule. Want to know what games are being played at what time and what channel they're on? Here's your complete TV Guide!

Kerry Johnson may be tailback #1 on the depth chart, but Kamryn Pettway is right there with him and fits right in to the system and what Auburn is wanting to do.

If you were hoping to buy tickets at the gate for the opening game of the season, it won't be possible. The Tigers have sold out the opener. There are tickets available on the secondary market, though.

Kevin Steele was originally supposed to meet with the media last night, but instead Rhett Lashlee was the coach to face the reporters. See what he had to say about the depth chart and more.

Consistency is why Darius Slayton earned a starting nod at wide receiver as a redshirt freshman for Auburn. Consistency has been the biggest knock on the senior WR behind him, Tony Stevens. Either could provide the key deep threat Auburn needs, but that consistency is the key factor.
