Under The Mat: Title IX, and the end of Auburn wrestling

Karen Hoppa sits behind her desk on the second floor of the Auburn Soccer and Track & Field Complex, in an office that could only belong to a head women’s soccer coach.

Real Life Cam Newton made his return to campus this spring to earn his sociology degree, bring donuts, and sparki more Auburn comeback victories against Alabama (from the bleachers). Now, Virtual Cam Newton is also going back to school, and, unlike his real life counterpart, Auburn fans will be able to suit him in an […]

The Toomer’s Oaks: Coming Down (a class project)

Ed. note: Beyond “Thanks, Harvey,” Justin Lee didn’t have much time to reflect on it all. He was busy working up the nerve to film folks with his quasi-functional camera for the video that would be his final project for Austin Phillips’ multimedia class. Obviously the only way he could get people to agree to […]

Thanks, Harvey

Thanks, Harvey

Sometimes ‘Auburn Family’ just makes sense. Sometimes, no matter what journalism school or conventional writing etiquette tells you, you just have to come out and say it. Sometimes there isn’t any other way to describe it. This weekend was one of those times. The Auburn Family rolled the trees at Toomer’s Corner for the final […]

No-Huddle Notebook: Are you ready for some scrimmaging?

No-Huddle Notebook: Are you ready for some scrimmaging?

Well, hey there. A lot of stuff has been happening around the Auburn athletic department lately. But, don’t worry, none of this stuff is that stuff. This stuff is just football stuff, from this morning’s outing on the practice field. Believe it or not, the football world is still spinning, and Auburn actually has their […]

No-Huddle Notebook: It’s a New Week

Auburn powered through another spring practice Monday morning, donning full pads (but not hitting) as the second week of spring camp began. Post-practice, Gus Malzahn and select players were made available, touching on a wide, wide range of subjects. It’s going to be a mixed bag today. And it’s going to be another quick mixed […]

No-Huddle Notebook: Tempo, pads, and tempo

The Auburn Tigers were back in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday for the first time since last fall, and for the first time this spring, it was the real deal: full pads, full contact, and even some 11 on 11. But the pads didn’t slow down Gus Malzahn’s fast tempo practice. And keeping with the theme, […]

No-Huddle Notebook: It’s another New Day, again

The No-Huddle Notebook is back, tracking the Tigers through Day 2 of spring practice on the Plains. Auburn spent another day in shorts Friday, continuing to adjust to new systems on both sides of the ball. Post-practice, Gus Malzahn, new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, and new defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson spoke with the media. Here’s […]

No-Huddle Notebook: Happy New Year

Spring practice is in the air and Sir Justin Lee is back — Was he ever gone? Was he ever really here? — to bring us the most notable notes from each fine football morning. You can call it the No-Huddle Notebook. We’ll call it that, too. It’s officially the new football year, sports fans: […]

Bo Jackson talks about the ‘gleam’ in Gus Malzahn’s eye

Bo Jackson talks about the ‘gleam’ in Gus Malzahn’s eye

Unlike Bo, the audio in this interview with Bo about why he felt Gus Malzahn was the right man to coach Auburn’s football team isn’t perfect, so here’s the transcript. We talked to a lot of talented coaches out there. A lot of coaches that are going to be Division I coaches at other places. […]
