Auburn philosophy professor Kelly Jolley discusses his upcoming book on cult TV show ‘Chuck’

Auburn philosophy professor Kelly Jolley discusses his upcoming book on cult TV show ‘Chuck’

I feel bad about it now, especially since it always looked good. But I’ve never seen Chuck. So I don’t know a lot about it. But Kelly Jolley does. He also knows a lot about philosophy. Which is why he was God’s obvious choice to write the book that the critically-acclaimed show’s philosophical themes have […]

Auburn Softball rules

Auburn Softball rules

You will have to forgive me, but what follows is social commentary. I know, we get preached at enough from all corners, but in this you will have to indulge me. Auburn University (my alma mater) has a softball team. It’s had one for almost 20 years. And to be perfectly frank, I have not […]

An even better view of the Auburn helmet visor

An even better view of the Auburn helmet visor

Here’s an even better view of the curious Auburn helmet visor that dual-hat-threat legends David Langner and Mike Fuller used to stupefy both the sun and coverage units in the early 1970s. That writing on top? Yep, his jersey number. You can read the story behind (and even see video of) the visor here. h/t […]

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of (the giant Bo Jackson billboard in) ‘Pretty Woman’

Whenever you’re contemplating whether Cam Newton, as Blessed an Individual as he is, could ever achieve a pop cultural cachet greater than Bo Jackson in 1990, do consider the iconic “Ball Player” photo King Konging half of a Los Angeles high-rise in the opening credits of Pretty Woman. Eagle Eye Award to Julie Borders. If […]

That time a Morganna the Kissing Bandit impersonator busted in on Pat Sullivan at an Auburn club meeting

Pat Sullivan. Morganna the Kissing Bandit, or at least a Morganna the Kissing Bandit impersonator and her over-sized shakers… what a fun, perfectly mid-80s night it must have been for members of the Northwest Georgia Auburn Club. Speaking of Morganna? h/t @AU_History / photos via the Auburn Alumni Association. If you’d like to help TWER […]

Watch this 1982 WSFA Iron Bowl week news segment on Aubie and Big Al (starring young Rich Thomas)

Watch this 1982 WSFA Iron Bowl week news segment on Aubie and Big Al (starring young Rich Thomas)

I found Rich Thomas—somebody had to—at the end of this WSFA segment on Aubie and Big Al shot the week of the 1982 Iron Bowl, back when The Friends weren’t muzzled when dealing with the media. It was just Rich’s second year on the job. P.S. Please tell me that’s Morgana the Kissing Bandit… Can’t […]

Was an Auburn fan photobombing broadcasts of other teams’ games in the 1970s?

Was an Auburn fan photobombing broadcasts of other teams’ games in the 1970s?

Remember the Rainbow Man? Well, Auburn may have once had a Rainbow Man. Only instead of John 3:16 signs (and kidnapping charges), he was holding up Auburn seat cushions and promoting the gospel of Shug. Or at least it seems like the guy our old pal Allen Spain spotted holding up a “War Eagle” seat […]

VIDEO: Leonardo DiCaprio showed up to a Coachella pool party in his Auburn hat

Standing out amid the flower crowns at this year’s Coachella? The headwear of noted Auburn fashion icon Leonardo DiAuburnCaprio. I don’t care what the Academy says–give that man an AUscar! Can’t see the video? Try here. Leo’s Auburn hat first hit the Internet in 2010.  In 2011, he wore it to a soccer game. The […]

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

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 […]

Auburn grad overwhelmed with gratitude after beloved horse saved by Auburn vets

Auburn grad overwhelmed with gratitude after beloved horse saved by Auburn vets

“You better go hook up your trailer.” The words from the vet hung in the air like a fog. I knew that’s what he was going to say, but I still stood there dumbfounded for a moment. My legs went numb and my stomach felt like Saturday morning after too much Friday night. My horse […]
