I had no less than 100 people ask me if the A-Day game would be televised this year. It was tape delayed by CSS, and here it is, in it's entirety. I'm not sure how long it will be up, but watch it now. If you can stay awake through the 2nd half, or tell me which color gets points on each touchdown, you win something.
I don't care who wins the Masters as long as it's Tiger Woods, or the Auburn Tiger himself, Jason Dufner. As spotted today by @Dylan_Reeves, their warm-up routines vary just so slightly.
War Dip Eagle, Jason.
The Auburn University Bookstore needs your help. No, what they need is to do another episode of their "The Office" style sitcom. Episode one was amazingly hilarious, in my opinion, and the powers that be need to give these kids time to film a follow-up. Note: I once ran into Aaron in the bookstore and congratulated him on being Student Employee of the Month. He politely reminded me that it was Student Employee of the Year. So yeah...
You know those buttons with the snarky remarks you see on people when trying not to make it look like you are staring at their chest on football gamedays? Yeah, those come from the Auburn Bookstore (located in the bottom of the Haley Center). As you'll see in this video, they want you to help come up with those. I personally love the Washington State Cougars one, but it probably won't fly.
Anyway, watch the video and click the link below to enter the contest (by April 27th). You win a t-shirt and 10 buttons if one of yours is picked, but what really win is Auburn Gameday Button fame forever.
Enter your ideas here, and post them in the comments below.
Auburn has updated the look of their weight room this offseason. It didn't cost 9 million dollars. It doesn't come with a loudmouth strength coach. It comes with weights and workout machines. It just gets the job done. And is that a picture of Tre Smith lifting weights on one of the columns? Interesting choice.
Video from Advent, the company responsible for designing and making the updates.
Charles Barkley turns 50 years old today, just three days after Michael Jordan. I knew he was good -- he's one of the best ever -- but you just don't realize how good he was at Auburn until you see these highlights. And no, there was no 3-point line when he played.
How do you run and jump in shorts that short, and tight, and... huggy. Happy Birthday, Charles.
Auburn swept the Maine Black Bears this weekend to start the season 4-0 for the first time since 2008, Tom Slater's last year as head coach. It probably had a lot to do with this intro video, which even makes a random called third strike even more exciting.
I chalked baseball fields for two summers in high school, and I never had pumped up classical music leading me down the line. I probably would have done a better job, and made straighter lines, had I had that good fortune.
The Auburn men's basketball team lost a close one to the Florida Gators today by the score of 83-52. I can't remember one positive moment of game time, but during the 12-minute timeout in the 1st half, Aubie and the student section, also known as "The Jungle," partook in their own version of the world's latest craze called "The Harlem Shake."
I'm 30 with two kids so I'm not exactly where this thing got started, but I do know from YouTube that everybody and their mother has created one of these videos.
I love Batman and the Joker, but the subtle Florida fan by Aubie, I see you, and never sit in my student section again.
Charles Barkley has no filter. Sometimes that's a bad thing. Sometimes that's a good thing. In regards to what he did/said on TNT last night, it's a good thing... if you like trolling Alabama fans as some of us like to do.
It's a real shame that Charles can't even make a classy move like going to Tuscaloosa to congratulate Nick Saban and... well, just watch.
