Dameyune Craig wanted to win the 1997 SEC Championship Game so bad he spanked an offensive lineman to punish him for penalties

There was an SEC Storied episode on the 1997 SEC Championship Game on the other night. It brought back a lot of memories, and reminded me of that folksy old football adage you just don’t hear that much anymore: “Spare the rod and spoil the offensive lineman.” (Watch your back, Chad Slade.) (Can’t see the […]

AU ball boys have been #AuburnFast since 1981

AU ball boys have been #AuburnFast since 1981

Good grief—another example of us forgetting our glorious heritage, and I’m as much to blame as anyone. Despite my whole thing from yesterday about Gus Malzahn’s offense bringing about a culture change in the student equipment manager department, it looks as Auburn has been Ball Boy U. for as long as it’s been Running Back […]

[UPDATED] iPhone Analysis: Siri defies ESPN, says Auburn ‘crushed’ Arkansas

According to the dude manning the SportsCenter countdown sidebar thing, Auburn barely held on to beat Arkansas… by 24 points… while Georgia routed Clemson (BY THE EXACT SAME SCORE). But according to Siri (and God and everyone else), Auburn crushed, i.e. soundly defeated the Hogs. YesSiri, the Hogs straight up took a beating on Saturday. […]

Gus Malzahn’s hurry-up, no-huddle offense has turned Auburn into Ball Boy U.

Gus Malzahn’s hurry-up, no-huddle offense has turned Auburn into Ball Boy U.

Jake Longenecker hopes his high school football coach was watching SportsCenter yesterday. “I said ‘I want to play running back’ because it was the easiest practice, and he said ‘no Jake, you’re too slow for that.’” The Potomac, MD native wound up playing quarterback and outside linebacker for the Churchill High School Bulldogs. “I wasn’t […]

The last minute, cold-battling equipment management decisions that helped Auburn win the 1993 Arkansas game

The last minute, cold-battling equipment management decisions that helped Auburn win the 1993 Arkansas game

Long sleeve undershirts. Blue tights. Some random, just-sittin’-on-the-desk samples of some magic hand muffs. When Auburn traveled to arctic Fayetteville in 1993, football equipment manager Frank Cox decided he’d better be packin’ heat. And thank heavens. Because Otis Mounds’ hot temper couldn’t keep everyone warm. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) h/t Auburn Obsessive Related: […]

Auburn fans (and at least one AU grad) star in Birmingham-based Bravo reality show ‘Jersey Belle’

I lived in Mountain Brook for a few years as a kid and I was not the only Auburn fan. I just wasn’t. Everyone talks about Birmingham and Bama, and sure, Bammerham, I get it. But I swear it was probably half and half, at least in my neck of the woods, at least once […]

Pat Dye, Jimmy Rane tag team the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I challenged Dee Ford, Madonna, and Pat Dye. Pat Dye accepted. WLTZ cameras were rolling. Longtime promotional pals Dye and AU Board of Trustees president Jimmy “Yella Fella” Rane got the treatment Monday afternoon in front of the main sign on the Auburn University campus. It would have made for a great Osmose Pressure Treated […]

Bo Jackson goes over the top in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, pretty much challenges rest of America

I was like, “OK, I’ll probably stop posting Ice Bucket Challenge videos unless, I don’t know, Bo Jackson does it or something…” (Can’t see the video? Try here.)
