  1. Auburn might have a back up plan

    i like it when people take an interest and try to post something on the board that interests them. some peeps on here post very little news but they sure like to bash someone else if they do not like what they post., or who it was published by. do some of you get off making a fellow auburn fan feel like an idiot if he publishes something you do not agree with? a private message might have been nice and not making a fellow fan feel like not posting anymore.
  2. Oral History of the Kick Six

    i have a chris davis autographed sports card legit out of the pack with a pic of him with the ball heading down the side lines. it remains one of my most prized auburn collectables.
  3. Quoting Gabe Gross

    i will tell you what i am afraid of. i think....maybe....that if auburn contains hurts and company they might send the gunslinger tua in to throw us off some. if the kid is that good and being a change of pace qb it might cause us some serious grief. anytime we seem to play a team with more than one decent qb we seem to struggle. i know tua is young but he has skillz and with our secondary banged up it worries me.anyone disagree or know anything that might help me relax a little?
  4. Tiger Buzz: Auburn vs. ULM TV, key matchups, players to watch Updated 5:30 AM; Posted 5:30 AM Auburn defensive back Nick Ruffin (19) and Auburn linebacker Deshaun Davis (57) tackle ULM wide receiver Marcus Green during the first half Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. (Julie Bennett/ 1 share By James Crepea ULM (4-5) AT No. 6 AUBURN (8-2) When: Saturday, 11 a.m. CT Where: Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, Alabama TV: ESPN2 Line: Auburn by 37 This game will determine... How healthy Auburn is heading into the Iron Bowl. There is no way ULM wins this game. The Warhawks may not be able to make it competitive if last year's 58-7 game is any indicator. The Tigers will likely hold a couple of offensive linemen out and in an ideal world, would take the starters out at halftime of a blowout. Key matchup Auburn's kickoff team against ULM's kickoff return team. Auburn has struggled at defending kickoff returns all season and ULM has one of the best return men in the country in Marcus Green. If all goes according to plan, Auburn will be kicking off a lot. Even with a large lead, Green could provide an explosive play to keep ULM in the game longer than it should be. Perhaps more importantly, he could expose areas of Auburn's kickoff unit that other teams could try and attack in the future. Three things to watch... 1. ULM passing game: The Warhawks spread the ball around, with three receivers over 400 yards, and Caleb Evans leads a top 30 passing attack. Auburn will be by far the toughest competition ULM faces this season, but ULM will test the Tigers secondary. 2. Special teams: As noted, Auburn's kickoff return defense has been brutal. Daniel Carlson was not consistently getting the ball out of the end zone last week and wind or not, that will be an area to pay attention to. So too will punts and punt returns. 3. Health and personnel: The faster Auburn can get its second and third-team in the better. How those players perform in what could be one of their last chances to play significant snaps will be noteworthy and any additional looks Auburn can put on tape before the Iron Bowl would be beneficial. ULM players to watch Evans and Green. It's a different quarterback than ULM played at Jordan-Hare last season. His raw stats are not far behind those of Jarrett Stidham, granted those figures have come against far weaker competition. Green is ULM's top receiver and return man. By the numbers 25 - Auburn is 25-0 all-time against Sun Belt teams. Key injuries Auburn --OT Darius James probable (leg), OG Mike Horton probable (left ankle), RB Kamryn Pettway out (fractured shoulder blade), RB JaTarvious Whitlow out (ankle) ULM -- DT Derion Ford probable (undisclosed), RB Ben Luckett probable (undisclosed), LB David Griffith questionable (undisclosed), TE Josh Pederson questionable (undisclosed), TE Cody McGuire questionable (undisclosed), WR Jonathan Hodoh questionable (undisclosed), DL Shaquille Warren questionable (undisclosed), DB Nick Ingram out (undisclosed), DB J.J.

  5. Auburn Football Auburn's Kerryon Johnson named semifinalist for Doak Walker Award Updated Nov 17, 10:11 AM; Posted Nov 17, 10:05 AM 10 Gallery: Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson against Texas A&M 711 shares By James Crepea Kerryon Johnson is garnering more national attention. The Auburn running back is among 11 semifinalists for the Doak Walker Award. Johnson leads the SEC with 1,035 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns in eight games this season and ranks eighth nationally with 129.38 rushing yards per game. He also has 15 receptions for 152 yards and two touchdowns. Twice named SEC offensive player of the week this season, Johnson's 167 rushing yards against Georgia are the most against a top 10 rush defense this season. He topped the 1,000-yard mark last week to become the 11th Auburn player to reach the milestone since 2009. The other semifinalists are Notre Dame's Josh Adams, Penn State's Saquon Barkley, Oregon's Royce Freeman, Oklahoma State's Justice Hill, Southern Cal's Ronald Jones Jr., Colorado's Phillip Lindsey, Standford's Bryce Love, San Diego State's Rashaad Penny, FAU's Devin Singletary and Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor. No Auburn player has ever won the Doak Walker Award, which since 1990 has been presented to the nation's top running back. Texas' D'onta Foreman won it last year. The three finalists will be named Nov. 21 and the 2017 Doak Walker Award winner will be announced during The Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN on Dec. 7. The Doak Walker Award will be presented on Feb. 16, 2018. ADVERTISING inRead invented by Teads James Crepea is an Auburn beat reporter for Alabama Media Group. Follow him on Twitter @JamesCrepea.
  6. Arkansas wants Gus

    and some say this a RED ELEPHANT CLUB thing to create chaos before the iron bowl. and of course sexton and company might be behind it. i am sure it will concern our recruits so i hope if it is not true our coaches are burning up the phone lines making sure recruits know it is not true.
  7. Arkansas wants Gus

    ol booger macfarland claims he wants to go bad from what he is hearing but i do not believe ol boog likes auburn very much.
  8. Arkansas wants Gus

    Sources: Arkansas Facing Pressure From Board to Make Gus Malzahn Next Head Coach Bruce Feldman Sports IllustratedNov 16, 2017, 11:43 PM Earlier this week Arkansas canned athletic director Jeff Long, and multiple sources tell SI that in the wake of a dismal season for fifth-year coach Bret Bielema things have really gotten messy with Razorbacks' brass. Big-money boosters at Arkansas and members of the university's board of trustees have been pushing for the Razorbacks to go after Auburn coach Gus Malzahn to be their next head coach. Malzahn, an Arkansas native, high school coach and former Razorbacks assistant under Houston Nutt, has rallied the Tigers back into playoff contention this season and is coming off a big win over No. 1 Georgia in Week 11. Long’s fate was sealed at last week’s Board of Trustees meeting, which Long flew in for but was not allowed to take part in, according to sources. SI has learned, Long got caught up in a power play between some of the Razorbacks’ strongest backers. He hired Bielema after a very successful turn at Wisconsin, but the former Badgers boss is just 29–32 in five seasons and 11–27 in SEC play. The Hogs are 4–6 this fall and 1–5 in the SEC. • Week 12 Picks: Will the Top Teams Avoid Any Unpleasant Surprises? Malzahn’s buyout from Auburn would be close to $7 million. He is 43–20 in his five seasons helming the Tigers, including an 8–2 mark this season that features a 6–1 record in the SEC. In 2013, he led Auburn to the BCS national title game, where it lost to Florida State in the final seconds. Malzahn’s own seat at Auburn has been pretty warm on a few instances, but now his team has a shot at the SEC title and maybe the College Football Playoff.
  9. David Langner

    i absolutely hated the bear then. he insulted us tho i think he was being funny. but after the game he went down in front of the auburn student cheering section, stood at attention, and saluted the fans. i read about it in a bio but have yet so see a pic of him doing it.
  10. Goodbye, Al Franken

    al should and will be held accountable. i know this is a pipe dream but i think pols should role models for people to look up to.
  11. Should we extend Malzahn's contract?

    i voted yes but i did not realize he still has three years. but he did answer the bell when folks said beat ga or bama and win minimum nine games. i would give coach steele a nice raise. chip as well. if they are deserving of it give it to them.
  12. I hate Finebaum - but he's right

    i think it is odd the way some hate finebaum and yet turn around and say much harsher things about auburns coaching and team. people on this very site have wished auburn would lost the rest of its games to get rid of gus. and this was a few people and not just one lone fan or something. i do not agree with a lot of finebaums positions and i hate the loud screamers like tammy and phyllis. but he has a lot of great guests and he has shown auburn a lot of love this season. and like the other poster said....LAURA! man i saw he bikini pic when she was in the miss florida pageant and holy moly my eyes popped out of my head.
  13. Moore or Strange?

    sounds like nothing but deflections.ya'll keep bringing up stuff from almost twenty years ago. NO wrongs should be allowed a pass. wanting moore to walk because bill got a hummer is pretty disgusting. i wonder how many peds are thinking.....hey maybe i can wave a bible and get a pass if i want to molest a child? the left came down hard on anthony weiner. lib hollywood has crashed hard on those libs commiting sexual assault and or harassment. and how many people are doing harm to those that have been assaulted by smearing them when they come forward? cops have come forward. a lady in the da's office came forward. and i think it is safe to think maybe those girls were scared to come forward when the accused is in a powerful the time to do great harm against his attackers. you guys can believe roy is santa claus if you wish but there are many republicans who have stepped forward at the risk of their own parties backlash to do what is right. and right now all roy is doing is lying. he lied about the restuarant not being real. he faked an old list of pastors supporting him when in fact the list had nothing to do with the allegations. raoy is a sick and troubled person hiding behind the bible and the american flag and too many give hima pass without looking at the facts.............
  14. Auburn Football Contracts released for Auburn football assistants Chip Lindsey, Larry Porter, Greg Brown Updated Nov 15, 5:45 PM; Posted Nov 15, 5:13 PM Auburn offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey before the Mississippi State game Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at Jordan Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala(Julie Bennett) 16 shares By James Crepea The buyout language in the contracts of two of the three members of Auburn's coaching staff hired last offseason is different from their colleagues, according to contracts the school released Wednesday after more than 10 months of requests. Offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey, tight ends coach Larry Porter and secondary coach Greg Brown all earn base salaries of $250,000, but have differences in compensation for retention bonuses, personal endorsement rights and media rights and personal appearances and their respective buyouts if they chose to leave Auburn. Lindsey earns an annual retention bonus of $100,000 at the conclusion of Auburn's regular season, which would include the SEC Championship if the Tigers are playing. He earns $225,000 for both his endorsement and media rights, for a total of $800,000 in annual total compensation through Jan. 2020, not including performance bonuses for a bowl game or a discretionary bonus. If Lindsey left Auburn other than to become a head coach in the FBS or FCS prior to the end of his contract, he would owe all remaining money owed to him through the remainder of his contract. Porter eared an annual retention bonus of $50,000 on Nov. 1 and would do so again next year. He earns $75,000 for both his endorsement and media rights, for $450,000 in total annual compensation, not including performance bonuses. He would owe Auburn $55,000 if he left for another job before Jan. 31, 2018. ADVERTISING Brown earns an annual retention bonus of $25,000 on Dec. 31. He earns $62,500 for both his endorsement and media rights, for $425,000 in total annual compensation, not including performance bonuses. He would not owe Auburn any money if he left for another job. The contracts of all three are fully guaranteed if Auburn were to fire them prior to the end of their contract, with mitigating clauses for any money they would earn elsewhere during the remainder of their contract term. All three are also allotted a car allowance of $16,250 annually, which is standard for all of Auburn's assistant football coaches. Auburn offensive line coach Herb Hand, wide receivers coach Kodi Burns and linebackers coach Travis Williams do not owe buyouts if they were to leave Auburn for any reason, according to their contracts released last year. Hand and Williams are under contract through Jan. 1, 2018 and Burns is under contract through Jan. 31, 2018. Auburn running backs coach Tim Horton and defensive line coach Rodney Garner also do not include buyouts if they were to leave, according to their most recently released contracts, though the most recent copy of Horton's contract expired in June. Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele would own a deescalating buyout depending on the time at which he left, which is presently $750,000 but will drop to $500,000 after the 2017 regular season. first requested the most current copies of contracts for Auburn's football staff on Jan. 13. On Oct. 10, an Auburn spokeswoman said the school did not have updated contacts. Brown signed his contract on Jan. 11, Lindsey signed on Jan. 20 and Porter signed on Feb. 10.
