The AU Wishbone: Time for the Real Contenders to Stand up

The South Carolina game – the good, the bad and the ugly: The Old Ball Coach showed up in Auburn last Saturday night with his offense.  No, no “Steve Spurrier, everyone’s favorite comedic coach who runs the ball 55% of the time and wins with defense” but “the Fun n’ Gun Old Ball Coach who […]

Auburn cheerleader dresses up as Publix crab legs for Halloween costume contest

Two FSU fans were the talk of Twitter Monday thanks to their Halloween costumed commentary on Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s criminal crab legs cravings.

Watch Tommy Tuberville’s Auburn keep the ball for the entire third quarter in 2006 win over Steve Spurrier’s South Carolina

“‘Patience’ and ‘Spurrier’—those words don’t usually go together,” Chris Fowler told Kirk Herbstreit at the start of the third quarter of the 2006 Auburn-South Carolina game in Columbia, which the Gamecocks were going into with all the momentum in the world.

Watch the 1993 and 1994 Auburn episodes of Florida Football Highlights with Steve Spurrier

I’m supplementing the meager Auburn-South Carolina history stories with old Spurrier stuff (when he was at Florida. And San Francisco). Since we won’t see the Gators again until 2094 or something (unless they decide to start playing football and meet us in Atlanta), I feel good about it. The man is the Gamecocks’ coach; I […]

How is this even a contest? Auburn fan Michael Garber and his legendary Tigerprowler have a bus with tequila coming out of it, a 30-foot deck on top with OSHA-certified handrails, sleeping accommodations for your friends… It’s so awesome, so welcoming even to rival fans that this lovely lass from LSU (who really wishes that […]

Here’s the College Football Final coverage of Cam Newton’s coming out party vs. South Carolina in 2010

Here’s the College Football Final coverage of Cam Newton’s coming out party vs. South Carolina in 2010

Myself, I stood up and shouted Heisman during his first long touchdown jog in the 2010 season opener against Arkansas State. But the South Carolina game three weeks later—that’s what really delivered those Cam Newton Is a Heisman Candidate optics. That five-yard, just-in-case dive at the end of his, like, 60-yard touchdown run understandably dominated […]
