Gus Malzahn, Blind Ref are your first Auburn costumes of the Halloween season

Gus Malzahn, Blind Ref are your first Auburn costumes of the Halloween season

There was trick or treating at Wind Creek State Park this past Saturday. Third-generation Auburn grad Leah Dickinson (whose blog you can check out here) took her two sons Ethan (age 7) and Owen (age 9), or as they introduced themselves to the candy-hoarding denizens of Lake Martin: Coach Gus Malzahn and “Mr. Auburn Fast”.

The AU Wishbone: Can you hear the bells?

The AU Wishbone: Can you hear the bells?

With the SEC’s relaxation of the artificial noisemaker rule the officials at Mississippi State have made a few modifications to the plans for the stadium……..[rubs hands together and chuckles evilly………] Expectations and dealing with losing Which felt worse? Losing this MSU game last week or one or the Texas A&M loss in 2012? In some […]

The AU Wishbone: We are the Meat Grinder (Insert SEC Opponents)

The AU Wishbone: We are the Meat Grinder (Insert SEC Opponents)

We have realized that in hindsight some of you were confused by last week’s column in which we showed a meat grinder logo and discussed Auburn’s schedule.   But after Saturday’s events in the SEC and Auburn’s domination of the boys from Red Stick, the lesson is clear:  The 2014 Auburn Tigers are the meat grinder […]

Mississippi State considered handheld mirrors, cow tails as replacement traditions when cowbells were banned in 1975

Mississippi State considered handheld mirrors, cow tails as replacement traditions when cowbells were banned in 1975

Tradition, tradition, the cowbells are a tradition. Of course, no doubt, we get it. But forty years ago, when that tradition was threatened, it apparently wasn’t the cowbell, per se, that was so beloved by Mississippi State fans, but what it did: Limited their opponents to only four senses. “Mississippi State officials say they are […]

The University of Alabama tried to buy 1,000 cowbells from Mississippi State to bring to the 1974 Iron Bowl; Texas fans took them to annoy Auburn at the Gator Bowl

The University of Alabama tried to buy 1,000 cowbells from Mississippi State to bring to the 1974 Iron Bowl; Texas fans took them to annoy Auburn at the Gator Bowl

The latest chapter in the cowbell controversy: Auburn fans are taking cowbells to Saturday’s game against Mississippi State. Or at least some Auburn fans are. Or at least there are a couple of pictures of Auburn-ed out cowbells being retweeted with exclamation points of varying degrees of endorsement or embarrassment. The noise from the brouhaha, […]

What Siri says about Auburn’s win over LSU

What Siri says about Auburn’s win over LSU

I mean, it sure seemed like we won. But as we’ve learned this season, there’s really only one way to know for sure sure: WHAT DID SIRI SAY? Siri Sez via Kenny Smith. But I don’t care what Siri says—this whole “Tiger Bowl” thing someone is still trying to make happen should still not happen. […]

VIDEO: Watch Ole Miss beat Bama in Jordan-Hare Stadium

VIDEO: Watch Ole Miss beat Bama in Jordan-Hare Stadium

We totally lost something, I thought, when we just went to keeping up with the other games through the sponsored digital score feed thing on the upper deck and on the scoreboard, instead of hearing it belted across the stadium and echoed with OOOOHS! Collectively celebrating Alabama being behind to some joke team they weren’t […]

‘Did you say LSU or LS-PEW?’ Katy Perry uses corn dogs to pick Auburn over LSU in bizarre ESPN GameDay appearance

‘Did you say LSU or LS-PEW?’ Katy Perry uses corn dogs to pick Auburn over LSU in bizarre ESPN GameDay appearance

How do you pick Auburn to beat LSU without even saying the word “Auburn”? You hold up up corn dog and stare blankly away from the camera while Lee Corso wonders what the heck is happening. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) Oh, and she also ripped the Big Al helmet off Corso’s head while […]

Silent Cheers: An Auburn fan copes with press box professionalism

Silent Cheers: An Auburn fan copes with press box professionalism

I am an Auburn Fan. If you have read any of my previous pieces (articles? blogs? posts? What do you call these things, anyway? “Pieces” makes them sound like works of art. Which, of course, they are. I am way too humble to point out this obvious fact, yet there it is. But I digress…), […]

The AU Wishbone: Into the Meat Grinder

The AU Wishbone: Into the Meat Grinder

The “easy” early season schedule is over – Auburn has the toughest remaining schedule of any team in college football.  The 2014 “Special Director’s Cut Extended Edition” of Amen Corner begins on Saturday with LSU coming to Jordan-Hare.  It’s time to get some revenge for our only regular-season loss last year. It’s time to repay […]
