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…

The Southeastern Conference has established Sept. 26 as the new kickoff for its 2020 football season to allow its universities to focus on the healthy return of their campus communities and the gradual re-introduction of athletics. The 14 members of the SEC continue to monitor developments r…

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.

Would you rather try to go for a school record against a team you know you'll beat or try to work on things you need to improve when you have the chance?

Whether it’s been obvious or not, I haven’t unveiled my list of greatest games attended in any particular order. I’m sure I could come up with some definitive scale if I had to, but all eight games I’ve talked about so far are incredibly special in their own right.

Last week I talked about the highest scoring “great” game on my list, in which Auburn beat Alabama, 48-45, so it only seems appropriate this week to talk about the lowest scoring “great” game on my list.

Pat Dye was known for returning the Auburn football program to national prominence in the 1980s. He was the head coach of the Tigers for more than a decade and also served as the school’s athletic director for most of that time.

Spring football was canceled, but the “transfer portal” (insert cool sound effect) is still functioning at maximum capacity. Hundreds of student-athletes have already or will soon find a new home and suit up for a different team in 2020.

My brother and I had an opportunity to ride over to Atlanta to watch Auburn take on Tennessee in the Georgia Dome in 2004. My brother-in-law was able to finagle some tickets (thank you Chris Champion) and it still ranks in my top 10 games ever attended.

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.

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 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.
