Why didn’t Gus Malzahn let Nick Marshall face the music at SEC Media Days?

Johnny Manziel was a Heisman Trophy winner. He was amazing, on and off the field. On the field, he defied laws of nature, and was exhausting to watch.

What we can learn from Auburn’s Cheech Marshall

Nick Marshall’s “citing” for marijuana possession cost him a trip to Birmingham for Auburn’s appearance at SEC Media Days. The face of Auburn’s offense, and in some respects their entire program, isn’t fit for the cameras or microphones because he can’t stay off the dooby.

Auburn unveils this year’s new lame AU billboard

Have you seen it? Our friends from Lee County are at it again. As we’ve documented many times before, Auburn is a cult, not a fanbase. The characteristics are staggering.

Player Alabama didn’t even recruit claims he was offered a car

With McCarron finally gone, Bama fans look forward to the future with a good quarterback in Jacob Coker

AJ McCarron was part of three National Championships in his time at Alabama. He was the starter for two of those, and was penciled in as the unproven redshirt freshman backup in 2009′s BCS game against Texas.
