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.

Gus Malzahn does ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, challenges Cam Newton

That was #AuburnFast. Waffle House Ice Bucket Challenged Gus Malzahn and Zach Galifianakis only just this morning. Or maybe this is in response to something from yesterday (cause apparently Tim Cook called him out, too). Or maybe this is just how Gus Malzahn takes a shower after practice, to stay sharp. Point is, on Wednesday evening, […]

Waffle House asks Gus Malzahn, Julio Jones, Zach Galifianakis to take ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

This isn’t the Gus’ local, post-victory hangout challenging him to dunk himself in ice water. This is, like, Waffle Nation. The video was shot at the Waffle House in Norcross, Ga. And that’s is Walt Ehmer, Waffle House President and CEO doing the challenging. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) Julio Jones? Zach Galifianakis? Mere […]

And since Gregg Foxworthy, wife of comedian Jeff “How Can You Not Like Auburn?” Foxworthy, mother Auburn student Julianne Foxworthy, was wearing an Auburn shirt—looks like it might actually be Jeff’s shirt—when she got her […]

The world’s only structure built specifically to be rolled with toilet paper is now even more rollable. A third wire was recently strung between each pole of the Toomer’s Triangle, allowing for two rows of AU logos to be suspended over the intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue downtown.
