Here’s Kristi and Kenzie Malzahn’s recipe for the perfect Gus Malzahn costume

If the photos we’re receiving are any indication, neighborhoods across Alabama (and as far away as Pennsylvania) will soon be set upon by roving hordes of Gus Malzahns, extorting candy from Auburn fans, terrifying Alabama fans. Yes, trick-or-treat tributes to the New Ball Coach appear to be all the rage among Auburn fans this Halloween. […]

Former Auburn coach John Heisman first proposed college football playoff in 1928

Former Auburn coach John Heisman first proposed college football playoff in 1928

Only one of the top four teams in the first College Football Playoff rankings ever was coached by John Heisman, and the former Auburn thespian would be proud—not only for his old (and no doubt favorite) team, but for the entire game of football. It was Heisman, after all, who, in addition to first implementing normal […]

Zelda Fitzgerald, Auburn fan

The Wall Street Journal recently did a story on the secret pigskin passions of F. Scott Fitzgerald, about how his mostly unknown or forgotten or ignored devotion to Princeton Tigers football qualifies him as “a pioneer of the fanaticism that characterizes so many college football fans today.” There’s even this wacky you-never-know theory that his […]

Remembering Spurrier to Beasley

Remembering Spurrier to Beasley

You think of them as legends, but legends in two different realms or universes or Wikipedia categories or something. Finding old articles that don’t just mention them in the same sentence but that document an actual football play that started with one and ended with the other is like what I would imagine reading some […]

The original capacity of Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium was twice as much as everyone says

The original capacity of Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium was twice as much as everyone says

I stumbled across my current favorite example of how almost everything you’ve been told about Auburn history is wrong while doing some digging for an Auburn Magazine story on the history of Jordan-Hare Stadium, this year being its 75th anniversary and all (I mean, I guess it is… who knows…). It’s a favorite because it’s […]

Watch wisdom tooth video sensation Mattie Griffith remind her high school that Aubie is not like those other tigers before being crowned homecoming queen

Mattie Griffith’s 15 minutes of fame are still paying dividends nearly six weeks after the video of her baring her Auburn soul in a post-wisdom tooth extraction haze of anesthesia went viral. At least they are for us. Griffith was crowned Hillgrove High School’s homecoming queen Friday night, and her new-found celebrity was front and […]

SNL alum Victoria Jackson’s year at Auburn

If you’re an aspiring actresses in Auburn’s Theatre Department these days, having a wacky, high-pitched voice will open all kinds of doors. Three decades ago, it them closed tight. At least it did for Victoria Jackson. “I liked my teachers (at AU),” Jackson, a Saturday Night Live cast member from 1986 to 1992, recalled in […]

Bo Knows Parodies

Bo Knows Parodies

It’s easy to forget just how deep it got into America’s cultural DNA. But man, if there’s a textbook example of a meme (at least if the textbook was published before the advent of freaking “meme generators”), “Bo Knows” was it. War Eagle. Take it away, YouTube… Mike Knows Underwriting: Aetna Life & Casualty Insurance […]

As Kroger expands, we look back at the first and most recent artist renderings of the legendary Auburn grocery store

As Kroger expands, we look back at the first and most recent artist renderings of the legendary Auburn grocery store

Publix’s come, Bruno’s goes, Winn-Dixies shall not rise again. But Kroger… Kroger remains constant. It thrives. It is constantly packed. After work, after church, it is simply impossible for someone who has lived in Auburn for more than five years to walk its hallowed, narrow aisles without trying to avoid someone you don’t have time […]

Did Auburn players ring cowbells during a Mississippi State game in the late 1960s?

All the talk about Auburn fans giving Mississippi State a taste of its own artificial medicine by bringing their own cowbells to the MSU game? Auburn fan Ann Adams says it’s nothing new, and she decided to have a little show and tell at work Friday morning to prove it. Adams’ brother, Billy Erwin, played […]
