VIDEO: Curley Hallman’s 1994 Auburn-LSU post-game press conference

Curley Hallman, Curley Hallman, Curley Hallman. You have to say that name when you talk about the game (“It cost Curley Hallman his job.”). Frankly, I wouldn’t even know his name if it weren’t for that game. But man, I’m probably going to feel a little bad about punchlining him from now on because the […]

VIDEO: Kristi Malzahn opens up about Waffle House date night with Gus in ESPN SEC Wives series

Gus Malzahn has only eaten two late night Saturday sandwiches at home (or in a Pasadena hotel) in his Auburn career—that’s the punishment for losing a game in the Malzahn household.

Jake Longenecker tries to buy Auburn Ball Boy T-shirts without being recognized, fails

Kansas State fans wearing ‘Roll Snyd’ shirts at Auburn game

You saw it and retweeted it because, wow, yeah. But when it’s just the shirt, just a mockup, you think maybe it was just someone playing around on Cafe Press or Zazzle or something. They screencapped it, threw it on a message board, that’s it… But no—they’re real, and they’re wearing them—at least the two […]

UPDATE: Jake Longenecker tries to buy Auburn Ball Boy T-shirts without being recognized, fails. Jake Longenecker is no longer allowed to speak to the media (sorry about that) about his powers.

Auburn using beets to beat opponents

Auburn is going to beet Kansas State. That’s just what the Auburn Tigers do–win or lose (and its mostly win), Auburn will beet you. From the Wall Street Journal: Before each game, between team warm-ups and the opening kickoff, Auburn’s staff distributes small pouches of beetroot concentrate. The players swirl the beetroot crystals around their […]

‘War Eagle’ graffiti appears on Abbey Road wall in London leading up to Auburn’s game vs. Kansas State

Auburn fans across the old country are super stoked about Thursday night’s game against Kansas State. Like, Abbey Road graffiti stoked. As to the artist’s identity, our first guess was, obviously, this woman. Then I thought, wait, maybe this woman. Or maybe these rock stars. Or maybe even that former Pat Dye recruit. All could […]

Rory McIlroy talks Auburn football after tee shot lands in Tigers fan’s pocket

UPDATE: We tracked him down. Rory McIlroy hit a golf ball into an Auburn fan’s pocket earlier today at the Tour Championship in Atlanta (VIDEO).
