VIDEO: Taylor Swift and her Auburn fan friend bake birthday cake for boy in ‘Fearless’ tour documentary

Considering besties constantly swap clothes, especially when they’re on career-defining rock tours together, there’s a decent chance the Auburn T-shirt seen in the final episode of Taylor Swift: Journey To Fearless was actually T-Swizzle’s. You may have heard something about her rerouting the Fearless tour through Auburn to hug some guys; you don’t just shake […]

Auburn, where ‘the Tide most certainly does not roll’, is correct response in ‘College Knowledge’ category on ‘Jeopardy!’

Auburn, where ‘the Tide most certainly does not roll’, is correct response in ‘College Knowledge’ category on ‘Jeopardy!’

Friday’s episode of Jeopardy! has the distinction of being the first in maybe forever to feature a correct response to an Auburn question or answer or whatever. And also of being our fourth Jeopardy!-related post–there was the Mack Brown thing, the Ken Jennings thing, and the almost most awesome thing ever thing–this year. Pretty sure […]

Former Auburn player Jason Fitzgerald gives “a War Eagle to the Auburn Family out there” on ‘Family Feud’

Former Auburn player Jason Fitzgerald gives “a War Eagle to the Auburn Family out there” on ‘Family Feud’

“Name something done to nuts that Mr. Peanut’s wife might do to him for cheating on him?” Steve Harvey asked former Auburn lineman (1989-1992) Jason Fitzgerald on Thursday’s episode of Family Feud. It’s surely one of the weirdest survey questions ever. “Throw him out,” Fitzgerald replied. The answer wasn’t on the board. But unlike that […]

The 1993 Auburn Iron Bowl victory license plate in the background in ‘Winter’s Bone behind JENNIFER LAWRENCE

The 1993 Auburn Iron Bowl victory license plate <s>in the background in ‘Winter’s Bone</s> behind JENNIFER LAWRENCE

In 2014, Jennifer Lawrence is the only Jennifer there is. Type “Jennifer” on your internet and Google automatically assumes it’s Jennifer Lawrence you’re after. Not Lopez, not Aniston, not Garner. They’re so positive you want Jennifer Lawrence, they introduce the two of you after just two letters. That was obviously not the case in 2011. […]

Tuberville-era Auburn football game shows up in ‘Parenthood’ episode—again

Tuberville-era Auburn football game shows up in ‘Parenthood’ episode—again

An Auburn game was on the television(s) in the background of an episode of Parenthood. Again. That’s two in less than a year. I could try to get cutesy with it again. Man, looks like ol’ Craig T. Nelson is really trying to keep those coaching skills sharp. Last November, he was watching the 2006 […]

VIDEO: Auburn showcased in episode of HGTV’s ‘House Hunters’

It’s not the first episode of HGTV’s House Hunters featuring Auburn grads. But the episdoe that aired Thursday night is the first built around the Return To Auburn instinct. “They basically moved to Auburn on a leap of faith,” says Kristi Smith, the Auburn Realtor who helped Glenn Loughridge, Auburn University’s director of campus dining, […]

Bo Knows shirt meets Charles Barkley reference in episode of ABC’s ‘The Goldbergs’

Bo Knows shirt meets Charles Barkley reference in episode of ABC’s ‘The Goldbergs’

Is a guy in a Bo Knows shirt worth a Tiger Pause post by itself if it’s on a show I know nothing about? Maybe. Probably. But a guy on a show set in the 198os–those shirts didn’t show up until 1989, so I guess it’s 1989?–making a Charles Barkley reference while wearing a Bo […]

Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon were stoked to watch Auburn beat Mississippi State in 1986 ‘Saturday Night Live’ episode

Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon were stoked to watch Auburn beat Mississippi State in 1986 ‘Saturday Night Live’ episode

UPDATE: It’s definitely 1986. In fact, the reason Sammy says it’s the 25th is because it actually was the 25th, October 25th, the actual date of Auburn’s 35-6 blowout of Mississippi State. But according to SNL historian @AUChizad, the episode was preempted by Game 6 of the 1986 World Series and didn’t air until two […]

[UPDATE] VIDEO: Giant Auburn flag behind Jay Leno, Al Roker (and Iliza Shlesinger and Craig Robinson) on TODAY Show set in Afghanistan

UPDATE: The Auburn boys made it back, this time on the front row, behind Iliza Shlesinger and Darryl from The Office. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) … Two TWER staples—Auburn folks on The TODAY Show (like Shaquille O’Neal and Michelle Obama) and Auburn stuff in Afghanistan (like foam fingers and stuff)—came together nicely this […]

Viral slow motion tattooing video features former Auburn tattoo artist who inked Lee Ziemba with National Championship ring (and that Auburn Creed chest tatt is in it)

Viral slow motion tattooing video features former Auburn tattoo artist who inked Lee Ziemba with National Championship ring (and that Auburn Creed chest tatt is in it)

In terms of fame and publicity and all that, lifelong Auburn fan Leah Farrow probably thought being interviewed by, and having her work featured on The War Eagle Reader would be her crowning achievement (totally understandable, and she wouldn’t have been alone). But then Destin Sandlin, the science-loving star of the popular (nearly 2 million subscribers-popular) […]
