Nothing new when it comes to Daniel Carlson
As football is enjoying spring break and former Tigers are anxiously awaiting the 2018 NFL Draft, not much has changed for kicker Daniel Carlson. Everyone still loves Legatron.
At pro day, Carlson said he’s interviewed (in some form or fashion) with “most every” NFL team, so if you’re thinking about buying a Carlson jersey, you’re going to want to wait until he’s officially drafted.

Baseball + W
All of Auburn’s players in the starting lineup stepped up to hit on Tuesday night in Plainsman Park and everyone found success.
All nine starters in the order earned a hit and reached base at least twice in the Tigers’ 12-7 win over Georgia Tech.
Auburn is now 16-1 heading into conference play against Texas A&M this weekend. Before that, however, Butch Thompson’s team will welcome Memphis in another midweek game Wednesday. Right-hander Ryan Watson will be on the mound for the Tigers and first pitch has been rescheduled for 3 p.m. CT.

Bruce Pearl’s basketball team practiced in Auburn Arena before it departed for San Diego, and there was an extra fan flying around.
There's still a bird in Auburn Arena, by the way.
