NPR uses 2013 Iron Bowl radio call to illustrate southern passion in report on possible ‘SEC Presidential Primary’

NPR uses 2013 Iron Bowl radio call to illustrate southern passion in report on possible ‘SEC Presidential Primary’

Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State, thinks “it’s time the South gets off the sideline when it comes to Presidential primary campaigns.” Why? Because southerners are a passionate people. I mean, just listen to this: (Can’t see the player? Try here.) It isn’t the first time the Kick Six has been politicized, but NPR’s┬áMorning Edition […]

Despite cryptic, ‘full-blown crazy’ behavior, Auburn grad Ashley S. receives another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Despite cryptic, ‘full-blown crazy’ behavior, Auburn grad Ashley S. receives another rose on ‘The Bachelor’

Acid? Muscle relaxants? Or just being awesome? We may never know. But we can keep watching. Because Ashley S.–our Ashley Brooke Salter–got (against seemingly insurmountable odds and conventional wisdom) yet another rose from Prince Farming on Monday night’s episode of┬áThe Bachelor. “That has to just be the producers keeping her on,” my wife said. Sure, […]

‘War Eagle from the Plaza’ on ‘TODAY Show’

‘War Eagle from the Plaza’ on ‘TODAY Show’

I’m honestly shocked it’s been five full months since we’ve had a TODAY Show post. For a while there they were coming, like, every other week (maybe every other day), mostly thanks to Al Roker and his incredible knack for awkward encounters with Auburn fans on The Today Show plaza (probably just because he expects […]

Auburn grad Ashley Brooke Salter stars in new season of ‘The Bachelor’; host calls her ‘the most talked-about girl on the show for quite some time’

Auburn grad Ashley Brooke Salter stars in new season of ‘The Bachelor’; host calls her ‘the most talked-about girl on the show for quite some time’

She’ll be going up against a cruise ship singer, a plus-size model, a WWE Diva-in-training, and maybe a baby, but none of the other 29 women appearing on the new season of ABC’s “The Bachelor” have what Ashley Brooke Salter has: an Auburn education. So what she looks like is pretty much irrelevant–that’s a deal […]

Auburn-Alabama house divided featured on home improvement show ‘Fix It and Finish It’

A house divided was featured on a recent episode of a home improvement show of called Fix it and Finish It, hosted, of course, by soap star Antonio Sabato Jr. Sure I’ve never heard of it, but given that almost all my time in front of the TV these days is spent watching stuff I […]

Watch comedienne and Auburn grad Jeanne Robertson respond to a Bama fan heckler with an eight-minute stand up bit on the 2013 Iron Bowl

Jeanne Robertson has been working that southern humorist schtick for years, and her upcoming DVD, Fabulously Funny, has an eight minute bit on the 2013 Iron Bowl. And it’s great. (Can’t see the video? Try here.) Jeanne’s an Auburn grad, 1967. And a hardcore fan. She was actually one of the featured guests alongside David […]

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

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. […]
