You know those horror stories about individuals who hit the lottery? The ones where a guy strikes it rich on Mega Millions but ultimately loses it all because of horrible investments, mismanaged savings and greedy, opportunist family members. Well, I am beginning to see a parallel to that scenario and college football.
Years from now when we look back on the year 2020, we’ll undoubtedly remember it with an unprecedented range of emotions. I think it’s safe to say some aspects of our lives will forever be changed. That’s probably a good thing concerning many circumstances and it could very well be a bad thi…

Cam Newton took Auburn University, the SEC and the football world by storm in the fall of 2010. He led the Tigers to the national championship and won the Heisman Trophy among other national awards.
I would estimate during an average week I’m asked whether or not I believe there will be college football this fall at least 10 times. You probably have that same discussion amongst your friends on a routine basis.
Last week, I broke down in detail the FBI investigation into college basketball that was unveiled nearly three years ago. I appreciate your indulgence in allowing me to carry this over to today.
“Alabama fans only know two emotions when it comes to the Auburn game; relief or sadness” is a quote from a random resident in the Twitter world.

An odd thing happened last week in the midst of all the sports stories detailing and lamenting how there are no sports stories to talk about. An actual, real-life event occurred that was timely and absolutely related to athletics.
In continuation of our series about the greatest games I have ever attended in person, this week I’m going back to 2004 when No. 14 Auburn defeated No. 5 LSU, 10-9.
When I heard Luke was putting together a list of the best Alabama games he’d ever been to in person, I had to get in on the fun. Of course, it couldn’t possibly be a good game unless Alabama loses or is that just me?
There is absolutely no question the year 2020 will be remembered. Unfortunately, it will be remembered just as much for everything that didn’t happen, as much as everything that did.
Bo Nix grew up watching and loving Auburn football. He dreamed of one day leading the Tigers to the national championship as the starting quarterback. He has the skills to play the position in his DNA as well as orange and blue in his blood.
ESPN color commentator Todd Blackledge used to do a segment every time he called a football game known as “Taste of the Town.” He went go around to all his favorite local eateries in various college towns and pig out on a vast array of culinary delights.
Until I can properly digest the outcome of the national championship game between LSU and Clemson and this week’s basketball game between Auburn and Alabama, I’m taking a look back to 2019 and remembering some of the legendary sports figures who are no longer with us.
Bruce Pearl isn’t just known for his work on the basketball court as Auburn’s men’s coach. He’s also been a constant support of the fight against cancer, and he and his organization have done a lot of work locally over the years to help in this community.
As we come to the close of 2019, it’s only natural to look back at what has transpired over the past year. I made some annual predictions about college football back in April and it’s time to revisit those prognostications.
As if you won’t see this type of article hundreds of times as Jan. 1 approaches, here are my thoughts on various sports-related New Year’s resolutions.
As far back as I can remember, National Signing Day for high school football prospects around the country was always on the first Wednesday of February. It was a big deal full of overhyped drama and excitement.
The College Football Playoff is now set and for the first time since its inception, Alabama will not be a participant thanks to the Auburn Tigers. You’re welcome America.
We are on the heels of yet another incredible Iron Bowl. What a game it was! Both teams played their hearts out. I’m just thankful the good guys came out on top. It got me to thinking of my most memorable Iron Bowl matchups throughout my lifetime — that I remember.
I said last week this year’s Iron Bowl was going to be very difficult to predict. There were several unknowns that made it nearly impossible to truly know what to expect.
When Joseph Bulovas’ toe met football leather with two minutes left in the Iron Bowl, there was slow-motion anxiety for every Alabama fan. Misses, pulls, yanks, shanks and doinks from years’ pasts came flooding through their memories like some demented, torturous highlight reel from hell.
The 93 points scored in Saturday’s Iron Bowl are the most Alabama and Auburn have combined for in the series in games played at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The previous high was 62 in 2013.
