Why am I covering Auburn Athletics? I am a life-long, 3rd Generation Auburn fan. I have the pedigree to be a full on rabid fan who wears his Orange and Blue Blinders everywhere he goes. Both sides of my family have deep Auburn ties. I've been going to games since 1993. I converted my wife, who now bleeds Orange and Blue as deep as anyone when she was a die hard Crimson blooded Alabamian. My first born is named Aubree. I am a graduate student of Auburn Engineering. My best friend still lives in Auburn. We get down there as often as we can.

But, I have a love for Auburn like a good parent. I am still slightly swayed and opinionated, but still subjective enough to ask questions and provide a parent's eye view of Auburn Athletics. I hope you will take the time to read and respond!
