Tweet of the day 

Auburn offensive lineman Austin Golson has been overlooked a bit since the SEC title game. But offensive line coach Herb Hand didn’t let the senior go unnoticed any longer on Tuesday afternoon.

Hand tweeted this message about his utility guy, who played virtually every position along the offensive line for Auburn this season.

Without Golson, there’s no telling how Auburn’s unit would have navigated several injuries and a difficult SEC schedule.
