Lee Bains III dons Auburn hat in new Glory Fires video

Lee Bains III dons Auburn hat in new Glory Fires video

Birmingham-based (but Lee County-lovin’) rock ‘n’ roller Lee Bains III is once again wearing his Auburn affection on his sleeve. Only this time it’s on his head. Not as rad as that time he blew Bama fans away with his “War Eagle” shirt at Egan’s in Tuscaloosa back in 2012, but still… more like Lee Brains. Can’t […]

Rising dance music duo features first freshman to win Miss Auburn University pageant

I know what you’re thinking—Tim Cook has done it with computers, Bo Jackson with sports, but when is an Auburn grad going to conquer the Electronic Dance Music charts? Maybe pretty soon. They call themselves STASH, and by all accounts they have the look, the sound—their single Don’t Tear Me Down is apparently tearing it up—and […]

Last Call with Carson Daly, The Late Show with David Letterman, some Emmy nominations as a supervising producer during Jimmy Fallon’s stellar first year at The Tonight Show—Rob Crabbe is, like, the Gus Malzahn of late night production.

Recent Auburn grad Sara Hopkins snags bit part in new ABC drama ‘Secrets and Lies’

In the 2007 spy film Breach , the apparently ageless Ryan Phillippe played the role of an Auburn grad trying to expose a secret. In the 2015 murder-minded drama Secrets and Lies, recent Auburn grad (and Vine wunderkind) Sara Hopkins is, if but briefly, trying to expose Ryan Phillippe’s secret. Life is a mystery! I know, […]

Baghdad-born Auburn grad starts crowdfunding campaign to fly her pet bunny to Kurdistan

If I’m wrong, by all means let me know and I’ll post the biggest, most sincere correction ever. But until then, I’m going to come out and say it without even Googling around: An Auburn grad has become the first person in the world to try to crowdfund a rabbit from Atlanta to Kurdistan. From […]

Auburn scientists name newly discovered species of catfish after ‘Star Wars’ character

Auburn scientists name newly discovered species of catfish after ‘Star Wars’ character

For a while, it just sat in a jar. It took some Auburn scientists—Jonathan W. Armbruster, David C. Werneke, and Milton Tan—to realize it wasn’t just another crazy catfish caught in some drainage waters down in Brazil, it was entirely new species. And that it looked like Greedo. “We share a lab with a guy […]

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

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. […]

NPR uses 2013 Iron Bowl radio call to illustrate southern passion in report on possible ‘SEC Presidential Primary’

Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State, thinks “it’s time the South gets off the sideline when it comes to Presidential primary campaigns.” Why? Because southerners are a passionate people. I mean, just listen to this: (Can’t see the player? Try here.) It isn’t the first time the Kick Six has been politicized, but NPR’s Morning Edition […]

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 […]
