So says Tony Barnhart:
Auburn’s 27-24 victory against Clemson in overtime was one of the hardest hitting games I’ve seen in a long time. Two guys got carted off with serious leg injuries. Clemson quarterback Kyle Parker took a shot to the back (it was a legal shot, I might add) and showed tremendous grit in [...]

The Auburn men are poised to win their 12th consecutive SEC swimming title; the Auburn women lead their title race, but are locked in a dogfight with Florida.
Auburn’s men extended their lead and the women surged into first place Friday in the Southeastern Conference Swimming and Diving Championships in Tuscaloosa.

It was 25 years ago today that Vincent ‘Bo’ Jackson took a handoff from quarterback Randy Campbell and dove over the Alabama defensive line to score the game-winning touchdown and end nine years of misery.
By coincidence, ESPN.com is now running a nice long article by Michael Weinreb about Bo — what he’s doing now, and [...]

I knew Auburn and Alabama were playing this week, and I knew Auburn’s play was greatly improved this year, with the Tigers have racked up a home win against number 22 Tennessee, but I still didn’t have the nerve [...]
October 14 at Jordan-Hare Stadium: Auburn was trailing Number 2 Florida, but late in the third quarter, the Tigers had stopped the Gators and forced them into a punting situation deep in their own territory. Then lightning struck: Florida punter Eric Wilbur mishandled the snap from center. Auburn’s Jerraud Powers blocked the punt, and Tre [...]
At halftime of the Cotton Bowl, the mood here at Pine Gulch was one of disgusted relief: disgust at the poor play of both Auburn’s offense and defense, but relief at the fact that we were still in the game. If the defense and specials teams hadn’t come up with some might big plays, we [...]
When Stanford fired head football coach Walt Harris earlier this month after the Cardinal concluded a 1-11 season, speculation was rampant that Auburn’s genius offensive coordinater Al Borges might be Stanford’s next coach. Borges was said to be “absolutely” interested in Stanford, and Stanford was interested in him. Borges would have been a good fit [...]
