Eric Mack, Ed Christian, and LaDarius Phillips are former or current Auburn football players that were reportedly victims of a shooting that turned fatal early this morning. Fox in Alabama is reporting that there were three deaths as a result of the shooting but we are hearing that it may be only two. The shootings occurred off Longleaf Drive at the University Heights apartment complex. The Auburn police have not confirmed any of the deaths. JUMP!
During the playoff game between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints, a Lions fan called in two threatening phone calls to the Superdome. His name happens to be Shawn Payton which is close to the former Saints coach Sean Payton. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge and could serve up to 5 years in prison and pay a 250,000 dollar fine. Payton also happens to be an Auburn Tigers fan. JUMP!
Former Auburn Tiger and current Detroit Lion defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested for driving under the influence around 1:00 am on Sunday. This isn't Fairley's first run in with the law this offseason. Earlier he was arrested for the possession of marijuana. He received a ticket for having an open container, no proof of insurance, reckless driving, and attempting to elude police. Expect Roger Goodell to follow up on this. JUMP!
That is the University of Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel with his smoking hot cheerleader girlfriend @TarinMoses in Auburn, Alabama. They are getting ready for one of the biggest annual rodeos in America that is this weekend. Jeff Driskel is competing for the starting QB job with Jacoby Brissett on Muschamp's squad. They are definitely dressed for the rodeo and look to have a good time. They should fit in just fine! JUMP!
The Virginia Cavaliers must have hired a uniform designer that was on acid for the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against the Auburn Tigers. Bright orange on bright orange? Even Maryland thinks your uniforms are poorly chosen. Even Santa Claus thinks you messed up big time Virginia. You have to hand it to Virginia fans because they brought some hilarious signs like "Eat Mor Tigurz" and "Eat Mor War Eagle". Check em out after the JUMP!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Alabama WR Marquis Maze just saw Auburn's punter shank a punt for 18 yards and gave his best "Trollface" ever. The caption should read "U MAD BRO?" Alabama is currently dominating Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Expect to see ALL OF THE SCHAUDENFREUDE. AJ McCarron has already thrown a flea flicker pass. Expect Alabama to unleash the dogs. JUMP!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: The Iron Bowl is one of the most intense rivalries in all of College Football. However, ESPN confiscated almost 80% of the Auburn fans signs forcing one guys sign to just read "THIS IS A POSTER". Real creative bro. No Alabama insults were left out including the fact that Alabama can't hit a Field Goal if their lives depended on it. JUMP!
BC writer Monty tonight sent us this dispatch: Earlier today, some idiot who will remain nameless did a story "exposing" Auburn and their practice of using paid hosts and hostesses to take care of recruits while they're on campus. The hostesses, known as Tigerettes, and hosts, known as Tiger Hosts, are students who do indeed get paid for doing actual work. Kind of like when they paid me to mop the racquetball courts when I was in college.
