As expected, Auburn tops the BCS rankings this week following Saturday's 24-17 win over LSU. The top five looks like this: 1. Auburn; 2. Oregon; 3. Boise State; 4. TCU; 5. Michigan State
ESPN BCS guru Brad Edwards said on SportsCenter a few hours ago that according to his calculations, Auburn is likely to be ranked number one when the new BCS rankings are released this evening.
While September 21, 1996, was not a memorable night Auburn football wise, it was memorable for what was happening outside the stadium. It will forever be remembered as the night the old Auburn Arena burned to the ground. I was sitting in the east side upper deck of Jordan-Hare Stadium that evening and from that vantage point I was certain the stadium was on fire. Smoke was blowing heavily for a while and the PA announcer kept assuring everyone that the fire was contained. Eric over at the SEC Network sent me a link to the game today. They are running it in its entirety this week at secsports.com. I thought I would share it with you. It has some remarkable footage from the fire. Unfortunately, 13th ranked Auburn fell to LSU 19-15.
Read No. 2 and No. 3. Glad somebody is finally starting to see what we are. That this is a really special team!
Walter Camp Offensive Player of The Week. We knew it was good, guess we aren't alone.
Spencer Hall over at the website, EDSBS thought it would be fun to do a "live thread" today for The Paul Finebaum Show considering Alabama lost this weekend and every ignorant Tide fan in the state shuts down each afternoon for his gospel. If you want a great laugh, just follow the thread. Thank God we are all Auburn people.
Busted for marijuana, looks like...gives new meaning to the phrase "Roll Tide"!
