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 [...]

Auburn wins an equestrian national title and finishes 3rd overall:
Auburn’s equestrian team won the Hunt Seat national title, defeating Texas A&M 5-2 Saturday in the Varsity Equestrian National Championships in Waco, Texas.
The Tigers finished third overall. They won the overall championship in 2006. Because equestrian is not an NCAA sport, the varsity nationals serve as [...]
The Dead Guy has the best summary of last night’s victory by the Kansas Jayhawks over the Memphis Tigers to win the 2008 NCAA men’s basketball championship. Even his title is great: “Score one for Decent Society…”
Could there have been a more fitting end to the college basketball season than what occurred last night? Joey [...]
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.

Of course that title is redundant. No one ever wants to be the trombone player, but on November 20, 1982 it was a particularly hazardous assignment. Especially if you happened to be a Stanford trombone player walking in the end zone at the end of the annual Big Game between Stanford and Cal. They just [...]

For Loy, it was all part of the celebration of Kentucky’s 43-37 overtime win over top ranked LSU.

Bobby Cox, who has been the Braves’ manager for most of the past three thousand years, has notched his 132nd ejection, giving him sole possession of the dubious record.
When Bobby Cox finally set the major-league ejections record, it was in the manner of a tree falling in the forest with no one there to hear [...]
Bobby Cox tied a record:
For weeks, Bobby Cox has bit his tongue. Admittedly not looking forward to becoming baseball’s Ejection King, Cox remained silent after calls that, in other instances, might have roused him from the dugout.
With his ninth-inning ejection in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers Saturday, Cox tied John McGraw for [...]
Looks like al.com has hired an Alabama graduate to manage the Alabama football page. Check out that headline!
Oh yeah, Alabama lost the Indepdence Bowl 34-31 on a last-second field goal by the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The team best known for producing Barry Sanders ended the year with a 7-6 record while Alabama dropped to 6-7. [...]
In today’s Press-Register, Paul Finebaum takes a break from being a Bama sycophant to write Michigan deserved what it got:
Cry me a river for the Michigan Wolverines. Send me the time and place for their pity party and I’ll be there in tux and tails — all black in honor of their state of mourning. [...]
Interesting writings over at ESPN about Alabama’s search for its next head chump coach.
Ivan Maisel, Tide have struggled to find the right coach:
“Alabama is not a factor anymore,” said a former Crimson Tide assistant who still actively recruits the South.
The Alabama merchandise is not in the sporting good stores nationwide the way that USC and [...]
