Ryan Pugh vs Reese Dismukes

Recommended Posts

Who you got?

These are the best two Auburn centers I have seen in my lifetime. Is there anymore that need to be added to the debate of best Auburn center?

Ben Tamburello.  Nuff said.  

Tamburello was recruited by Paul "Bear" Bryant to play college football for Alabama, but decided to play for Auburn. He played for the Tigers from 1983–1986. In 1986, he was named a unanimous All-American. He won the SEC Lineman of the Year award in 1986 and was named a team captain.[1]

For me and my time as an AU fan, I’d also go with Tamburello. He was a rock star at the position. 

As for the op question, I got Pugh. Reese has the accolades for sure but my gut says Pugh.

Between the two... Ryan Pugh.

But I'm on the Tamburello train. 

Bo might agree too 😁.

Seems like it's been a long time since AU put a Center into the NFL....some drafted or signed but have not stuck.

Some of you are forgetting Tom Banks.  All-Pro for many years.  Snapped for our first Heisman winner.  I guess most of you are probably just too young.  But he has to be No.1

I remember Tom Banks very well. His father, Tom Banks Sr, was the head coach at John Carroll high school in Bham for many years. Tough as nails and so was his son.

Message board fans were pissed at Reese that night. Wanted him off the team.

I remember hearing Reese caught wind that Foster was planning on bailing on the recruiting weekend and taking some others with him to Tuscaloosa, and Dismukes called him out on it.

That would be my vote. Good buddies with his sister years ago.
