Team of Density

Team of Density

George McFly had it right. Which is not to say I have any bone to pick with any one who uses the term “team of destiny” to describe the past month of Auburn football. As professor Jolley so ably wrote earlier this week, selecting the right clutch of words to accurately describe the end of […]

No-Huddle Notebook: Are you ready for some scrimmaging?

No-Huddle Notebook: Are you ready for some scrimmaging?

Well, hey there. A lot of stuff has been happening around the Auburn athletic department lately. But, don’t worry, none of this stuff is that stuff. This stuff is just football stuff, from this morning’s outing on the practice field. Believe it or not, the football world is still spinning, and Auburn actually has their […]

No-Huddle Notebook: It’s a New Week

No-Huddle Notebook: It’s a New Week

Auburn powered through another spring practice Monday morning, donning full pads (but not hitting) as the second week of spring camp began. Post-practice, Gus Malzahn and select players were made available, touching on a wide, wide range of subjects. It’s going to be a mixed bag today. And it’s going to be another quick mixed […]

No-Huddle Notebook: Tempo, pads, and tempo

No-Huddle Notebook: Tempo, pads, and tempo

The Auburn Tigers were back in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday for the first time since last fall, and for the first time this spring, it was the real deal: full pads, full contact, and even some 11 on 11. But the pads didn’t slow down Gus Malzahn’s fast tempo practice. And keeping with the theme, […]

No-Huddle Notebook: It’s another New Day, again

No-Huddle Notebook: It’s another New Day, again

The No-Huddle Notebook is back, tracking the Tigers through Day 2 of spring practice on the Plains. Auburn spent another day in shorts Friday, continuing to adjust to new systems on both sides of the ball. Post-practice, Gus Malzahn, new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, and new defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson spoke with the media. Here’s […]

No-Huddle Notebook: Happy New Year

No-Huddle Notebook: Happy New Year

Spring practice is in the air and Sir Justin Lee is back — Was he ever gone? Was he ever really here? — to bring us the most notable notes from each fine football morning. You can call it the No-Huddle Notebook. We’ll call it that, too. It’s officially the new football year, sports fans: […]

Coachapalooza ’12: Worth it

Coachapalooza ’12: Worth it

Hi, I’m Jerry. I used to post here a lot. This is what I hope will be a series of brief posts on Auburn’s 2012 coaching transition. Listen: yes, damn it, it was worth it. Don’t care how many times the guy at the airport is referred to as a prophet. Don’t care that Chizik […]

Seasonthoughts, Clemsonthoughts

Seasonthoughts, Clemsonthoughts

Hi, I’m Jerry. If you’re a newish TWER reader, you might not know me. I used to write here a lot. I’d like to write here more often. But at least I’m writing here today. In two parts: Seasonthoughts: the Reboot I didn’t see the new Spiderman movie. I have a daughter, now four weeks […]

Notes from the Beat, 8/2

Notes from the Beat, 8/2

Everyone always says that the first football game of the season is like Christmas, the night before like Christmas Eve, and this year Auburn fans will have a big prime time matchup against Clemson waiting under the tree. But when you think about it, maybe the beginning of football season is more like Hanukkah — […]

An Uncredentialed Look Back at SEC Media Days

An Uncredentialed Look Back at SEC Media Days

SEC Media Days is still going strong on its third and final day at the Wynfrey Hotel in Birmingham, but Auburn’s allotted time at the annual frenzy has come and gone. Gene Chizik, Philip Lutzenkirchen, Emory Blake and Corey Lemonier represented the team in front of droves of media members on Wednesday. I wasn’t among […]
