Link to the past: Week One of the Malzahn era

BY AARON BRENNER | abrenner@ledger-enquirer.com


AUBURN, Ala. – I don’t do the whole ‘ICYMI’ thing on Twitter. (By the way, that’s In Case You Missed It. No idea where or how it started.) Why not? I dunno. ITIRD. (I think it’s really dumb, for you literates.)

I merely presume you either a) read everything we produce without fail, or b) actually have a life and are okay with missing a notebook here or a video there because you’re out enjoying this gorgeous weather.

That said, I am a fan of combining a week’s worth of links into one tidy little spot here in our humble home of WarEagleExtra.com. So here’s the entire assortment of 19 different submissions from the first seven days of Auburn spring practice. Enjoy.

  3. …..Definitely “everything you produce.” That’s what’s great about RSS feeds! Although I’m still not a Twitter guy…
