Ok, so today’s something Orange comes from Josh Vitale of the Montgomery Advertiser. He does an excellent job in this piece writing about how Bryan Harsin looks to build on Auburn’s success in getting guys to the pros. This is a oft-overlooked positive aspect of the Gus Malzahn era, in my opinion. Gus got guys to the next level on a pretty consistent basis, no matter what your criticism of him is. Harsin has a ton of future pros on the roster right now, just maybe not spread out at all the position groups.
Trey Alexander leaving Auburn hit this blogger extremely hard, and not just because “Trey Alexander” rhymed with a ton of things I could use in future viral parody songs. He was also the guy I was most looking forward to having on the roster in this coming class. Auburn needed a guy who could get his own shot last season, and Trey was going to be that for the Tigers this year. Now he won’t be and that stinks. There’s no way to spin this as anything other than a huge bummer.
Here is Pat Dye and a very young Yella Fella building a fence in the middle of a field that would one day bear the name Pat Dye. Incredibly meta. Thanks to the War Eagle Reader for the upload.

Here’s a very understatedly dressed Craig Sager interviewing coach Dye in 1983 on CNN. Wild stuff. It’s a two-parter so you’ll need to take a long lunch to finish it.
