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

He’s fast–pretty much as fast as a road runner, according to ESPN sports scientists–but celebrity Auburn ball boy Jake Longenecker still wasn’t fast enough to get out of Dick’s Sporting Goods without being recognized. Blame it on his friend and fellow Auburn sophomore, Maggie McCabe. After learning that Dick’s was selling Auburn shirts that read […]

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 […]

The AU Wishbone: Pre-Season Questions Meet a Spartan Reality

One of the fun parts of college football season is seeing how the reality of the season is different from the way we thought it might be.  Were the optimistic pre-season prognosticators and fans right or wrong about a certain unit or team?  (For example, Georgia fans who confidently predict every June that this year […]

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).

Watch Robert Dunn’s awesome punt return, and Quentin Groves’ awesome sack in Auburn’s un-awesome 2007 win over Kansas State

I remember an awesome punt return and an awesome That’s How You Want To Remember Quentin Groves sack at the end to put the game away. But sheesh, looking back, the rest of that season-opening win over Kansas State was pretty hideous. The Wildcats had 18 penalties. Brandox Cox was sacked five times. He constantly […]

‘Looks like he’s gotten a little faster’: Jake Longenecker’s former high school coach proud of Auburn ball boy’s newfound fame

‘Looks like he’s gotten a little faster’: Jake Longenecker’s former high school coach proud of Auburn ball boy’s newfound fame

My voicemail message was apparently a little garbled, so when Joe Allen called me back, he actually thought I was an Auburn coach inquiring as to how Auburn might best utilize Jake Longecker’s newly-discovered talents. The message he left for me was a bit garbled, too–and he got disconnected before he finished–but I distinctly heard […]
