Gonzo blogging. I'm not sure this caption for this picture as created by JRS for his Auburn schedule preview really makes any sense, but for some reason, I want to give it a hug:
I think that reason is probably just the built-in wonder of the phrase "bat country."
The Billboard top 100. On the scale of Completely Disproportionate Overblownness, where something like Auburn's swimming national title would be a 1 and the Limo Gambit would be a 10, I fully expect these billboards to wind up a solid 8.25 or so.
To be continued. Will Heath takes a crack at determining the SEC Team of the decade and damn near succeeds, I'd say. With this caveat: let's see what happens this year. If the Gators win the league, it's all them. Anybody else, it's LSU, I'd say.
Breakin' it down. From the realm of the MSM, Chris Low looks at Auburn's lack of wide receivers and Luke Brietzke looks at Auburn's abundance of running backs. This will stun you, but the latter was a lot more fun to read.
Oldie but goodie. I still haven't linked to one of the videos that popped up last week of the media's tour of the basketball arena construction site, so
here's Jay Tate's. It's worth a look because this facility is going to completely own you. You won't even realize it, probably, but it will.
HEY! A guest writer at DawgSports compares something I like very, very much--Auburn football--to something I absolutely cannot stand and despise with every fiber of my being, i.e. the Mexican national soccer team. The worst part is, I can't even get angry at him, because the comparison's pretty apt. It just kind of sucks all the way around.
Etc. Did Snopes really have to go to the effort of explaining that this picture was a joke? Really? ... Mario Fannin adopts a curious accent in a fake interview at Section 25 ... there's a real and very interesting interview with Tommy Thigpen at War Eagle Extra, and it would be a big deal if I hadn't read like 30 very interesting interviews with Auburn's staff this summer ... WRAS has a quote for you ... I'll chip in $5 bucks if it means we can get the Expats a subscription.
