Auburn’s ‘Unorthodox’ Super Sunday

Photo via Auburn Athletics Communications Congratulations to the Auburn Softball Tigers for earning a return trip to the Womens’ College World Series! It’s always Great To Be An Auburn Tiger, but it wasn’t always comfortable on Super Sunday. Lot of tension in this stadium. Or humidity. Both are cut with butter knives. It's hot. I…

Pat Dye Called His Kicker ‘Feminine,’ But That’s Not All

Embed from Getty Images Pat Dye once used the word effeminate to describe Scott Etheridge, who was Auburn’s kicker in 1992 and 1993. This factoid is one of those things that a lot of folks know. It’s part of the minutia sprinkled all throughout the mythos of modern-era SEC football. My brother recently challenged me…

Starry Auburn Night 169

Starry Auburn Night

Starry Auburn Night. Maybe I shouldn’t have done this. One of my kids asked if I got that guy’s permission to use his painting. Nope—sure didn’t. And I didn’t set out to make this art, if you’ll allow that term. I’ve loved this picture since I took it, on August 31, 2013—the first eagle flight…

Kelsey Bogaards

Why Is Kelsey Bogaards’ Nickname ‘Turtle’?

You may have heard that Auburn Softball’s motto for the 2016 postseason is to “Play for Turtle.” Turtle is the nickname for senior shortstop Kelesy Bogaards, who suffered a knee injury in fall practice, and had been working ever since to get cleared for action.
