Tweet Not much has gone right for Gene Chizik and the Auburn Tigers this season. Entering today they were 1-7 overall and winless (0-6) in SEC play. But this is homecoming weekend at Auburn and New Mexico State (1-7, 0-4 in WAC) is in town. The Tigers are in good shape to secure win [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Daren Bates of Auburn. It’s simple, really. When you not only use one arm to avoid being tackled, clearly you’ve done good work. When that “tackler” goes flying in the other direction video game-style, well, you’ve displayed a truly special stiff arm. This is one of those moments, and the dive on the end only [...]
Sure it was only against New Mexico State, but Auburn Tigers linebacker Daren Bates had some slick moves during this fumble return for a touchdown. He started it off with a nice spin move, and finished it with an absolutely devastating stiff arm. He made it look like he should be playing running back for them. The superman dive into the end zone for an unsportsmanlike conduct...
Time for today's "there's a possibility but no chance" coaching rumor of the day. The Alabama blog I Bleed Crimson Red claims that first-year Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez is the top candidate to replace Auburn HC Gene Chizik.
The blog gives several reasons why RichRod coaching Auburn would make sense.
For the last three years, Auburn has...
Auburn hasn't had much to cheer about this season. The Tigers are having a miserable year, and coach Gene Chizik is likely to be fired after the...
Senior linebacker Daren Bates talks about his highlight real 62-yard fumble return for a touchdown and the energy it brought to the Auburn sideline.
AUBURN, Ala. -- Tre Mason rushed for 152 yards and Onterio McCalebb added 113 and two touchdowns to help Auburn snap a five-game losing streak with a 42-7 victory over New Mexico State on Saturday. Daren Bates returned a fumble for a 62-yard touchdown for the Tigers (2-7), who picked up a much-needed win in the program's worst start in 60 years with games against No. 7 Georgia...
The combined record of the New Mexico State Aggies and the Auburn Tigers is 2-14. Let that sink in. The only difference, I guess, is that Auburn has losses to LSU, Texas A&M, and Clemson, while the Aggies have losses to Idaho and UT-San Antonio on their resume. You look at Auburn as an Auburn fan and you just think we're bad, but when you put them up against New Mexico State...

I'm pushing a B average, but it's going to take a few weeks of perfection to get up there for good. Mom Blogle never accepted a C, and I didn't make one until 11th grade Chemistry. Oh well, she's just gonna have to get over it in this case. I bet Brando is doing worse than 77%.

Auburn freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace directed the Tigers to a 42-7 win over New Mexico State.
The Auburn Tiger Head Coach Gene Chizik is really on the hot seat. He had an amazing 2010 season with quarterback Cam Newton and running back Michael Dyer but thinks haven’t been going so well in Auburn, Alabama in 2011 and 2012.
In 2011, Ted Roof was the defensive coordinator and that seemed to be most of the problem. In 2012, Brian Van Gorder came in and it didn’t seem to...
