News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

GOLF

For the women, the season is already underway. They finished 2nd of 8 in a tournament last week and are looking to build on that in their second start.

TENNIS

The men's team will open their season this weekend with a tournament at Duke.

FOOTBALL

All of the stories we've posted so far - and will post - for the Texas A&M game can be found in this story stream! There's one for every week, and they're all compiled in a "2016 Auburn Football" section for the site.

The History Repeating article for the week takes on a crazed homeless man in 1800s San Fransisco who became such a cult following that 10,000 people showed up for his dog's funeral. Sound familiar?

It's Week 3 in the college football world, and there are some good games out there! We've got your TV Guide and talk about what we think you'll be watching, what you should be watching instead, and other fun things.

After two weeks, we're not quite ready for Ryan Sterritt's first actual rankings to come out, but we're getting there! Ryan discusses the season so far and what they may mean for when the rankings do come out.

The defensive line was the position with the most depth at the start of the season, but there were questions about how much they'd live up to potential. After two games, we're really seeing that the freshmen and senior leaders are holding their own.

I've seen some people question whether Carl Lawson is having a mediocre season, so far, since he's only tallied one sack in two games. AL.com does a good job of pointing out that Carl's impact goes way beyond just what you see on the stat sheet.

The DBs, meanwhile, will be tested by what Kevin Steele referred to as a "basketball team" wide-receiver corps. The Aggies have some of the best receivers in the nation, and they'll look to challenge the Tigers' secondary early and often.

Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway are in fine company with a record they set last weekend. Both had their first 100 yard games of their careers against the Red Wolves. The last time two Tigers had their first 100 yard games in the same game was back in the early 80s when two guys you may have heard of: Lionel "Little Train" James and Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson.

Gus Malzahn said last night that he feels good about John Franklin III as a passer. We haven't seen the JUCO transfer throw other than a screen pass in game action, yet, so we'll wait and see. Word is that he is much improved over where he was in the Spring, though, and he continues to get better.
