Malzahn

There wasn’t a lot of surprises today when Auburn announced their depth chart for their first game against Arkansas on Saturday at home.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is punishing him for his run in with the police before media days this summer.

Sophomore Jeremy Johnson will start the game but it’s only a matter of time before Marshall comes in against the Razorbacks. Senior cornerback Jonathon Mincy will also be miss some playing time against the Hogs after he got popped with weed too.

Nick Marshall apologizes to Auburn fans for traffic stop

Nick Marshall apologizes to Auburn fans for traffic stop

Nick Marshall Auburn

Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall apologized to Auburn fans Sunday for getting popped with marijuana last month a few days before SEC Media Days. Marshall was pulled over for a window tinting violation and the officer noticed the smell of marijuana in the car. The QB was cited for for marijuana possession and given a fine of $1,000 which his mother paid.

Marshall wants to regain the trust of his teammates and the fans.

“I made a mistake and I’m just trying to gain my trust back from the coaches. I let my family down and I’m also trying to gain their trust back and also the Auburn fans.

“The incident that happened, it’s just going to change me as a better man on and off the field.”

Marshall will not start in the Tiger’s opener against Arkansas. Auburn coach Guz Malzahn hasn’t said exactly how long he will have to sit but it likely won’t be that long.

Hopefully the young man learned his lesson and someone else who looks up to him can learn from it.

Auburn loses Kozan for the season, shuffles offensive line

Auburn loses Kozan for the season, shuffles offensive line

Posted on 03 August 2014 by Allen

Auburn

Auburn will be without their starting left tackle for the season. Alex Kozan injured his back over the summer in Colorado lifting weights and could not recover. Gus Malzahn confirmed he will have surgery and will be done for the year.

“He came back, we tried to rehab it, do some different things and he tweaked it. The doctors just felt like it was the best thing for him and his future to have surgery. He will miss the season. Obviously that’s a big blow for our guys up front with the type of year he had and the type of player he is.”

The Tigers were really counting on Kozan, Chad Slade and Reese Dismukes to be the heart and soul of the offensive line with Nick Marshall returning at QB. Kozan was All-SEC second team, Slade at right guard was on the third team and Dismukes was on the first team at center. Slade will now move to left guard and Avery Young will now take over at right guard.

Young started 3 games as a true freshman in 2012 but went down with an injury and took a medical redshirt the rest of the season. Last year he started nine games and made news when he broke his right thumb on the first play of the BCS Championship Game but continued to play and finished the game.

With the shakeups up front the new offensive line will consist of Patrick Miller at right tackle, Young at right guard, Dismukes playing center, Slade at left guard, and Shon Coleman at left tackle.

It was announced on Friday that Nick Marshall would not start the opener against Arkansas but it’s not know if he will sit for a series, quarter, or a half.

Nick Marshall Auburn

When Nick Marshall got busted for marijuana days before the SEC Media Days Auburn coach Gus Malzahn wouldn’t elaborate on his punishment when asked by reporters. But now that camp has started Malzahn announced that both Marshall and Jonathon Mincy will not start on Aug. 30th when the Hogs come to town.

Marshall was pulled over for a window tinting violation the Friday before he was to appear at Media Days in Birmingham. When the officer approached the car he smelled marijuana. The Auburn quarterback was given a citation for having less than an ounce of weed. Marshall’s mother paid a $1,00 fine.

Mincy was cited for possession of marijuana during a traffic stop in Abbeville, Ala., two weeks before Marshall got into trouble.

Now both men will sit out for an undetermined amount of time. Malzahn wouldn’t elaborate any further than this;

“I’ve decided that they will not start game 1 as part of their punishment. I will say this. Nick Marshall is still our quarterback. Jonathon Mincy is still our cornerback. The rest is between us”.

Jeremy Johnson will get the start against Arkansas. Johnson is a sophomore who saw limited action in 2013 but was named SEC Freshman of the Week twice against Western Carolina and Florida Atlantic.

Auburn and Clemson agree to home and home in 2016 and 2017

Posted on 30 July 2014 by Allen

Auburn

The Tigers of Clemson and Auburn have agreed to a home-and-home football series for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. The two teams will rekindle a rivalry that started in their first game back in 1899.

The games are set for Sept. 3, 2016 at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, and Sept. 9, 2017 at Memorial Stadium in Clemson.

Auburn and Clemson have met a total of 49 times with the Tigers holding a 34-13-2 advantage. Clemson won the last meeting in 2012 in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff 26-19 in Atlanta.

Last season Clemson went 1-1 against the SEC. The Tigers defeated Georgia at home but lost to South Carolina on the road. Auburn didn’t play an ACC team last year until the the BCS Championship Game against Florida State.

Malzahn doesn’t let Nick Marshall come to SEC Media Days

Malzahn doesn’t let Nick Marshall come to SEC Media Days

Nick Marshall Auburn

After getting popped with weed this weekend Auburn QB Nick Marshall wasn’t allowed to come to SEC Media Days in Birmingham with Coach Gus Malzahn and teammates Reese Dismukes, Gabe Wright and C.J. Uzomah.

Mashall was initially going to be at Media Days but after his run in last week the head coach called an audible. “Nick Marshall, didn’t bring him because I believe it’s a reward and a privilege to represent Auburn at SEC Media Days,” Malzahn said. “I believe he lost that right Friday. We have high expectations for our players, specifically our quarterback, being the face of our program.”

The Auburn coach did not say how he would punish Marshall. “Up until last Friday, Nick has been a model student, a model teammate, a model citizen, but he made a mistake, and he’s going to have to suffer the consequences for that mistake,” Malzahn said. “I’m not saying what that consequence is right now, but it will be addressed.”

“We have school rules and we have team rules, and we abide by them.”

Marshall will get slapped on the wrist and will definitely be under center on August 30th when the Tigers host Arkansas.

Auburn’s star QB Marshall popped for marijuana

Posted on 12 July 2014 by Allen

Nick Marshall Auburn

Nick Marshall was detained by Georgia police yesterday after he was pulled over for extra window tinting on his Dodge Charger. Officers found a few grams of marijuana in the car according to the Reynolds Police Department.

The Auburn QB was charged with ‘possession of marijuana less than one ounce’ and will be required to pay a fine by Sept. 10th or he will have to go to court. If Marshall would’ve had over an ounce of pot he would’ve been arrested and taken to jail.

Marshall is supposed to join Coach Gus Malzahn and two other players in Birmingham on Monday for SEC Media Days. Ironically enough he even posted on his Instagram how excited he was for event with the media on Monday.

“Some ppl say I changed but I just came to reality an realized what the mad above had in stor for me so I took it an ran with it!!! Love my Lifestyle!!! Looking forward to SEC Media Day!!! Wareagle”

I bet he’s rethinking his position now. It’s not known if he will still go to the event. If he does it will become a circus.

Marshall isn’t the only Auburn football player recently to get into trouble with the law. Senior defensive back Jonathan Mincy was arrested and charged with second-degree marijuana position last month.

Malzahn made a statement last night about the situation.

“I am aware of the situation that happened earlier today with Nick. I’m very disappointed and I will address it with him accordingly.”

Marshall had a breakout year last season at Auburn after transferring from Georgia. He was under center for memorable comebacks against Georgia and Alabama that propelled the team all the way to the BCS Championship Game against Florida State. This year Auburn is in the preseason top 5 and projected to be a title contender again this year.

Reese Dismukes on watch list for Rimington Trophy

Reese Dismukes on watch list for Rimington Trophy

Posted on 08 July 2014 by Allen

Auburn

The Rimington Trophy Fall watch list was announced earlier today and to no one’s surprise it includes Auburn Center Reese Dismukes. Dismukes was also included on the Spring watch list earlier this year and has been included on the list the last three seasons. Last year he was one of the six finalists but the award went to Florida State Center Bryan Strok.

The award goes to the nation’s best Center and will be given out at the Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Nebraska on Jan. 17. 2015.

The 4 year starter for the Tigers started 14 games last year and is a returning team captain. And if Auburn lives up to the hype this year with their prolific offense you have to think Dismukes could be the favorite to finally win the award.

Posted on 01 July 2014 by Allen

Auburn

Auburn right-handed pitcher/infielder Keegan Thompson was named a first-team Freshman All-American by Baseball America today, his second such honor after completing a stellar rookie season for the Tigers.

Thompson, who was previously named to the SEC All-Freshman Team and was named a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball, started 12 games for the Tigers on the mound in 2014. He was one of Auburn’s most consistent starters, putting together a 5-3 record with a 2.01 earned run average in 89.2 innings pitched. The right-hander led the team with 73 strikeouts while walking just 23 opposing hitters, and he held opponents to a .192 batting average.

Thompson’s ERA and opposing batting average were both the fourth-best marks among all Southeastern Conference pitchers.

He was one of three SEC players named to Baseball America’s first team, joining Vanderbilt outfielder Bryan Reynolds and Florida pitcher Logan Shore. Thompson is Auburn’s 15th all-time Freshman All-American and the first to earn accolades from multiple outlets since Brian Fletcher and Hunter Morris in 2008.

Holliday named associate head coach at Auburn

Posted on 20 June 2014 by Allen

Auburn

Tom Holliday, who has helped lead teams to 15 College World Series appearances and two national championships, has been named associate head coach and pitching coach at Auburn, head coach Sunny Golloway announced today.

In addition to his duties as associate head coach and pitching coach, Holliday will serve as Auburn’s recruiting coordinator.

“We’re very excited to have Tom Holliday and his wife, Kathy, join our Auburn baseball family,” Golloway said. “Tom comes to us with a tremendous wealth of knowledge and history of success in college baseball. His College World Series coaching experience speaks for itself, but what is even more impressive is Coach Holliday’s ability to teach and relate to student-athletes. We are very excited for not only our pitching staff but all of our student-athletes who have the ability to work with Coach Holliday.”

Holliday comes to Auburn after spending the past eight seasons as associate head coach at North Carolina State, where he most recently helped lead the Wolfpack to the 2013 College World Series and groomed ace pitcher Carlos Rodon into the No. 3 overall MLB Draft pick in 2014.

“Quite frankly, I’m excited. It’s a great opportunity,” Holliday said. “I feel like when you’ve been in college baseball as long as I have, you develop opinions about leagues and challenges. It’s the first time I’ll get a chance to coach in the SEC. When Sunny called me, it was like the lights went on, and I thought, `Wow, what a great challenge and what a wonderful opportunity.’ I’ve coached in the Pac-10, ACC, Big 12/Big 8. I love challenges, and I thought that the way Sunny presented the job opportunity to me was exciting.

“The concept of getting to the College World Series is what drives me, and I know it’s been a while since Auburn has been there, but Auburn has great baseball tradition. My conversations with Sunny have been outstanding. It’s great to feel like you’re wanted, and it’s great to feel like somebody needs you. And it’s great to talk with someone that likes to talk baseball 24 hours a day.”

In seven seasons as NC State’s pitching coach, Holliday coached five All-ACC pitchers and four All-Americans. He had 15 hurlers selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, including a first-rounder, second-rounder, a fifth-rounder, a sixth-rounder, two eighth-rounders and an 11th-rounder.

Holliday, who began his coaching career in 1976, has known nothing but success as a college coach. He owns a 281-150 record as a head coach and has a combined record of 1662-665 in 37 years as an assistant and head coach in the college ranks. In all, Holliday has coached with 15 teams that participated in the College World Series in Omaha, including two that won the national championship.

Holliday began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Miami, in 1976. After one season with the Hurricanes, Holliday went to Arizona State University for the Sun Devils’ run to the 1977 national championship. He has been with winning programs ever since. After one season at Arizona State, Holliday spent the next 26 years at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Okla., the first 19 as the Cowboys’ pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. He was the Cowboys’ head coach from 1997-2003.

In Holliday’s 26 years in Stillwater, Oklahoma State made 11 College World Series appearances, including seven in a row from 1981-87. The Cowboys played in the CWS championship game in 1981, 1987 and 1990. He took Oklahoma State to Omaha as head coach in 1999, finishing the year with a 46-21 record and ranked No. 8 in the country. The Cowboys won 50 games or more eight times while Holliday was on the staff, including 61 victories in 1988, and averaged more than 47 wins per season. Holliday coached 10 first-team All-Americans and 27 total All-Americans at Stillwater, 92 all-conference performers, seven Freshman All-Americans, two U.S. Olympians and six U.S. National Team members, 52 academic all-conference honorees, and 155 players who went on to careers in professional baseball, including nine who were first-round draft picks.

Holliday worked with numerous Oklahoma State players who went on to major league careers, including Pete Incaviglia (Baseball America’s Player of the Century), Robin Ventura (Baseball America’s Player of the Decade for the 1980s), Jeromy Burnitz, Mickey Tettleton, Doug Dascenzo, Scott Williamson, Mike Henneman, Luke Scott, Scott Baker, Matt Smith, Jeff Salazar and Josh Fields.

Holliday was the pitching coach at the University of Texas from 2004-06. The Longhorns were NCAA runners-up in 2004, his first year in Austin, then won the national championship in 2005. Collegiate Baseball magazine named him its 2005 National College Pitching Coach of the Year. Each of Holliday’s three Longhorn pitching staffs ranked among the nation’s leaders statistically, and three of his pitchers at UT earned All-America honors. Seventeen members of Holliday’s three Texas pitching staffs went on to play professional baseball, and three — Sam LeCure, J.P. Howell, and 2005 American League Rookie of the Year Huston Street — reached the big leagues.

A native of Uniontown, Pa., Holliday and his wife Kathy, have two sons, Josh and Matt. Josh is currently the head coach at Oklahoma State, and Matt is the starting left fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals and a six-time National League All-Star.

Auburn’s War Eagle VI passes away

Auburn’s War Eagle VI passes away

Posted on 18 June 2014 by Allen

Auburn

Famed golden eagle Tiger, a symbol of the Auburn University spirit for nearly 30 years, died June 18, 2014. At 34, she was believed to be among the oldest golden eagles in captivity.

On Aug. 31, 2000, Tiger, who was also known as War Eagle VI, was the first eagle to fly free in Jordan-Hare Stadium. For seven years, she flew at home football games and was retired following her 2006 flight at the Auburn-Georgia game.

Tiger underwent surgery June 17 to remove a cataract in her left eye, when a team of veterinarians determined surgery was needed. “The cataract was progressing, and without surgery a complete loss of vision was expected,” said Dr. Jamie Bellah, director of the Southeastern Raptor Center and head of the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Clinical Sciences.

“Tiger came through surgery and anesthesia well and progressed normally during recovery,” said Bellah. “A turn for the worse occurred during the night. We, like the Auburn family, are heartbroken by her death.” A post-mortem examination (necropsy) has been requested. Plans for a memorial are pending.

In 2012, veterinary ophthalmologists performed successful cataract surgery in her right eye. Months later, the retina of that eye detached, and caused her to lose vision in that eye.

Nova is War Eagle VII, and he, along with Spirit, an American bald eagle, now fly during pregame ceremonies at home football games.

Malzahn and staff gets extensions until 2019

Malzahn and staff gets extensions until 2019

Posted on 07 June 2014 by Allen

Malzahn

After taking Auburn to the BCS Championship Game in his first year on campus Gus Malzahn has been awarded a two year contract extension. With the new deal he will be the Tigers football coach until 2019. His original deal was through 2017 but with the raise Malzahn will get $250,000 more a year. His original contract paid him $2.3 million a year for five years.

The new contract also has several incentives such as a $300,000 bonus for playing in the National Title Game and another $500,000 for winning it. If he makes on of the top six bowl games Malzahn will get an extra $200,000.

Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee got a hefty pay raise from $250,000 annually to $600,00 with an extension until 2017. Defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson got a raise as well which took him to $800,000 a year. Former Tigers QB and now receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Dameyune Craig also got a raise of $150,000 to $500,000. Seven other coaches also received raises and extensions.

It’s hard to believe that two years ago the Auburn program was dead last in the SEC West and now they are a popular pick to win the division for the second straight year.

Malzahn wins Stagg Award

Posted on 24 May 2014 by Allen

Malzahn

Auburn’s Gus Malzahn will pick up his Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award on May 30th at the Auburn Athletics Complex. The United States Sports Academy announced Malzahn its 2014 winner in February for “outstanding achievement as a coach.”

Malzahn helped lead Auburn to the SEC championship and a spot in the BCS title game.

The United States Sports Academy says the winner of its award “should exhibit a high standard of propriety, imagination, and innovation as a character-builder in the tradition of great teacher-coaches.”

Malzahn also won these national coach of the year awards for his 2013 success: the Bobby Bowden Award, the Bear Bryant Award, the Eddie Robinson Award, Home Depot Award, Liberty Mutual Award and was named coach of the year by the Associated Press and the Sporting News.

The award is named in honor of a man who was instrumental in founding the AFCA in the 1920s. He is considered one of the great innovators and motivating forces in the early development of the game of football. The plaque given to each recipient is a replica of the one given to Stagg at the 1939 AFCA convention in tribute to his 50 years of service to football.
