Auburn’s Keurig Girl gaining national attention for coffee charisma

Auburn’s Keurig Girl gaining national attention for coffee charisma

“Hello?” “Hi, this is Madison Collins.” “Thanks for calling me back! Are you drinking coffee? “I’m not, but I can make some.” Can she ever… She’ll make coffee here. She’ll make coffee there. She’ll make coffee anywhere. Madison Collins is Keurig Girl–it says so on the name tag outside her dorm room—and it’s what she […]

Auburn grad Ashley S. escapes the ‘Bachelor’ mansion with amazing exit, feels nothing

Auburn grad Ashley S. escapes the ‘Bachelor’ mansion with amazing exit, feels nothing

The Bachelor is over. Well, not technically. Technically it will still stream across the dome of America, over the Mesa Verde, and into your DVR. But the only real reason to watch the show–Ashley S., our Ashley S.– is gone. She’s off. She’s over it. And she feels… NOTHING. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) […]

Auburn coed earns Trekkie street cred with her Toyota

Auburn coed earns Trekkie street cred with her Toyota

There was no question.When she was 16 and it came time to buy a new car and pick out a license plate, there was but one option. You don’t pass up an opportunity like that, not if you’re a Trekkie. And 18-year-old Auburn freshman Tori Chancellor is a Trekkie. An almost-cry-when-you-see-Patrick Stewart-on-Broadway, take-a-cardboard-cutout-of-Spock-to-senior-prom level Trekkie. […]

Despite disappearing act, Auburn’s Ashley S. receives yet another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Despite disappearing act, Auburn’s Ashley S. receives yet another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

The most talked about girl on The Bachelor was hardly even seen on Monday night’s episode. Was she even on it? I honestly thought she left after the stupid goat milking thing, no doubt headed for the Mesa Verde. But no, there she is with those amazing eyes, staring into the “soul” of Chris Soules […]

A list of the first items ever lost and found at Jordan-Hare Stadium

A list of the first items ever lost and found at Jordan-Hare Stadium

It was inevitable, really. The largest crowd in the town’s history, the greatest collective football experience in the school’s history, Thanksgiving (NOT FRANKSGIVING!!!)? Attention was going to be diverted, things were going to be lost–important things, valuable things, personal things. But thanks to the eagle eyes of the API Plant Service, they were found, both […]

Despite cryptic, ‘full-blown crazy’ behavior, Auburn grad Ashley S. receives another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Despite cryptic, ‘full-blown crazy’ behavior, Auburn grad Ashley S. receives another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Acid? Muscle relaxants? Or just being awesome? We may never know. But we can keep watching. Because Ashley S.–our Ashley Brooke Salter–got (against seemingly insurmountable odds and conventional wisdom) yet another rose from Prince Farming on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor. “That has to just be the producers keeping her on,” my wife said. Sure, […]

Golden Globes gift bags to include Toomer’s Coffee Company’s ‘Auburn City Blend’?

The folks at Toomer’s Coffee Company will likely be tuning in intently to the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, but not to see which movies will win. Even if we didn’t already know, who cares — the important thing is that more than 60 gift bags given to whomever gift bags are given to at […]

‘War Eagle from the Plaza’ on ‘TODAY Show’

‘War Eagle from the Plaza’ on ‘TODAY Show’

I’m honestly shocked it’s been five full months since we’ve had a TODAY Show post. For a while there they were coming, like, every other week (maybe every other day), mostly thanks to Al Roker and his incredible knack for awkward encounters with Auburn fans on The Today Show plaza (probably just because he expects […]

Auburn-Alabama house divided featured on home improvement show ‘Fix It and Finish It’

Auburn-Alabama house divided featured on home improvement show ‘Fix It and Finish It’

A house divided was featured on a recent episode of a home improvement show of called Fix it and Finish It, hosted, of course, by soap star Antonio Sabato Jr. Sure I’ve never heard of it, but given that almost all my time in front of the TV these days is spent watching stuff I […]

Legendary 1931 tie with Wisconsin earned Tigers the nickname ‘Iron Men from Auburn’

Legendary 1931 tie with Wisconsin earned Tigers the nickname ‘Iron Men from Auburn’

An 83-year-old, 7-7 tie with Wisconsin does not the stuff of legend make. The previous sentence was a lie. The final 1 in Auburn’s current 1-1-1 record vs. the Badgers was instantly the stuff of legend, and a completely underrated (and barely even remembered) chapter in Auburn’s big game history. Chances are you’ve never heard […]
