STATE OF ALABAMA
I'm not going to comment on what brought this about and let's go ahead and leave any discussion of politics out of it, but, hey, we have our first Governor of this state who is an Auburn grad in quite some time, now. Congrats, Kay Ivey!
YOU GET A RUN! AND YOU GET A RUN! AND HEY, DO YOU ATTEND SAMFORD AND WANT TO PITCH? THEN, YOU GET TO PITCH! Whew, that was quite the game. Both teams scored a whole lot, and Samford went into the double-digits with pitchers. The game lasted over 4 hours and resulted in a 16-15 Auburn win.
When you're responsible for driving home the winning runs in both weekend games and also do a number of other things, there's a decent chance you're going to get recognized. Alyssa Rivera was named the SEC Freshman of the Week for her performance against Ole Miss.
The Tigers are in action again tonight at home against Georgia State.
What does the staff think about Auburn's performance during A-Day? Well, why don't you read this and find out? I'll give you a hint: we're all pretty excited about the way things went.
Spring football is officially over, as the Tigers concluded the spring with one final practice on Tuesday following the A-Day game. Now, the long grind of the offseason begins as the QBs and WRs work on their own, the players are in the weight room getting better, and hopefully, no one does anything stupid off the field.
ESPN created their Football Power Index which was supposed to be the most accurate predictor of football teams out there. They then decided they'd write some click-bait on which team was the "most overrated." Guess who most of them thought was the most overrated in the SEC?
In former Tiger news, Brandon King has re-signed with the Patriots. I had a chance to meet Brandon a year or so ago when he came to Auburn's Military Ball with one of our Cadets and he really seemed like a great guy.
Oh, and remember Ashley Swindle? The girl who tried to catch a #Legatron kick-off and ended up getting hit in the face? She was featured on Comedy Central's Tosh.0 last night.
