Video: Florida Baseball Pulled Off The Hidden Ball Trick Friday Night

Perhaps the Florida Gators prepared for College of Charleston by watching Rookie of the Year. UF pitcher Logan Shore acted as the decoy, pretending to tie his shoes while shortstop Richie Martin actually held the ball in his glove. College of Charleston’s Nick Pappas, unaware, stepped off second base just enough for Martin to swoop in and tag him. It’s a move that is rarely used...

Tuberville thinks Auburn should have pushed harder for '04 championship

The Auburn Tigers went 12-0 in 2004. They ran through the SEC, beating three top-10 teams along the way, but were left out of the BCS National Championship Game because preseason Nos. 1 and 2 USC and Oklahoma went undefeated, too.  So, Auburn had to settle for a 13-0 season, capped by a Sugar Bowl victory against Virginia Tech, and no national title.  USC won it all that year...

Cam Newton talking up Auburn to recruits

Out of all the people who have played football at Auburn, Cam Newton is probably one of the program’s best spokesmen.

Who Wants Bama? – 27 Schools That Could Fill The Hole In Alabama’s 2015 Schedule

Earlier today, Alabama football admitted that it needs to fill a big hole in its 2015 schedule, and is willing to play “anyone.” The problem is, not everyone is willing to sign up for an almost guaranteed loss.

Lane Kiffin Says Alabama’s Running Back Trio “Probably” More Talented Than Any In The Entire NFL

It’s no secret that during the Nick Saban era in Tuscaloosa, Alabama has had one of the best rushing attacks in the country, year after year.

Blake Bortles multi-tasks, plays Ping Pong during interview

Quarterbacks have a lot on their plate. On pass plays, they have to simultaneously anticipate a pass rush, read linebackers and defensive backs in coverage, make sure to keep their footwork sound, and deliver a well thrown, catchable pass in the course of maybe four seconds.
