Football has a huge following in the United States, but especially in the South. Every Saturday in the fall is like a holiday, and dedicated fans plan their tailgates and trips to away games weeks in advance.
As an SEC school, Auburn is no different. We take our football very seriously here on the Plains and Jordan-Hare is sacred ground from August to November. After all the hype is over and the Iron Bowl has been played, however, we’re left with a kind of black hole…Continue

As my last year at Auburn University goes speeding by, I can’t help but get a little emotional when I think of all of my lasts here. My last football game, my last chance to roll Toomer’s Corner, my last first day of classes, and my last year of being under my parent’s wings.
But as Thanksgiving break begins, I’m taking the time to stop and think of what I’m grateful for here at Auburn University. And I’ve found that the list is incredibly long. So with a tear in my eye and a…Continue

Welcome to football season in the SEC. In the South, passion for your team runs deep in your blood and rivalries are fierce. It is where kids root for their family’s team before they are even born. It is where winning is the only thing acceptable. It is where uttering the other team’s battle cry is considered worse than a curse word. It is also where 7-year-old Julia Ladd decided that, above all these things, being a friend was more important than a rivalry.
Let’s face it: who…Continue

To be honest, when I decided to attend Auburn University, I wasn’t completely sure I had chosen the right school. When I visited the campus, I immediately thought about how beautiful it was, and when I talked to people they seemed genuinely nice, but I still wasn’t 100% convinced…Continue

Throughout my four years as a student at Auburn University, I witnessed first hand what it means to be a member of the Auburn Family. The Auburn Family always supports, always encourages and always cheers.
I was spoiled my freshman year. Our football team was not expected to be anything remarkable, and I expected just another football season with wins and losses. Boy was I wrong. As each game came and went, we were still undefeated. It was amazing.
Our team and…Continue

I have never not been a southerner. The furthest north I’ve ever lived was South Carolina, and does that really count? It is a state with “South” in the name. My baby pictures are confusing. In half of my pictures, I sport a precious toddler-sized Auburn cheerleader outfit, complete with the orange and blue bow half the size of my head hanging from my hair. In the other half of my baby pictures, I’m wearing a cozy…Continue

Not every Auburn student gets the chance to watch their beloved Auburn Tigers play from the sidelines of Jorden-Hare. Even fewer get to experience it for every single game. But, that is exactly what Emma Miller, senior in exercise science, gets paid to do. Well, that and more.
Miller has been a student trainer for the football team since her sophomore year at Auburn. And the way she came about the job is pretty unique.
“My freshman year I went to Church of the…Continue

In 2010, Gene Chizik made us do a double take with his signature white, short sleeve windbreaker. It was sleek, practical and exuded just the right amount of attitude. Now, Gus Malzahn has everyone talking (and tweeting) about his game day attire.
Behold, the Holy Trinity of football garb — the sweater vest-turtleneck-visor combination.…Continue
