Auburn Villager stories for the week of 11/29

Quite the week at the Villager, with the firing of head coach Gene Chizik. Guess what I wrote about?

- Here's my thoughts on the search for a new football search, and how it becomes a referendum on the outside opinion of Auburn.


- I also wrote about Auburn High School's football season, which ended in the quarterfinals of the playoffs.


Thanks for reading.

Auburn Villager stories from the week before Thanksgiving

The holidays are, as always, a tad insane. I believe these stories from the Villager were from the Thanksgiving issue, and I know they're not on here. So:

- Before Gene Chizik, Auburn's football coach, was fired this past Sunday, I wrote about his potential legacy with the school, if he were to be let go. Now that he was, it is something to consider.


- Auburn High School's football team advanced past the second round of the playoffs with a scenario straight out of Friday Night Lights.


- Lee-Scott Academy football prepared for a rematch in the state championship game against the only team to beat them in the regular season.

Last week I contributed to The Classical's superb Why We Watch series on the NBA and its various characters. I wrote about Brandon Jennings, the Milwaukee Bucks and the ties that bind them.

In short, it was lots of fun. Here's the link:

FROM THE FILES: Selected writings from my NBA's past

During the lockout-shortened and eye-crossingly insane 2011-12 NBA season, I wrote about the league over at The Hoop Doctors, and I had a lot of fun doing so. The following are some of the pieces that I, when going through the archives, still didn't mind seeing again; mostly because of the subject matter.

- On the eve of LeBron James' first chance to clinch a title, thoughts on his journey:

- How Rajon Rondo's difference is different, whether he's doing everything or nothing:

- Prior James Harden trade, the Thunder, where no attack is the same:

- Thoughts on the Bucks' franchise-changing trade of Andrew Bogut:

- The Nuggets' attempt at contending with an across-the-board awesome roster:

- In honor of President's Day, I made a basketball roster comprised of Leaders of the Free World:

- Remember the Rondo trade rumors? Remember Rondo's on-court response? It was great:

- In one game, the Bucks showcase the good and the sad of their recent past:

Hooray, NBA.

Auburn Villager stories for the week of 11/1

Hello and welcome to November, here's what I wrote this week at the Auburn Villager:

- My blog piece about Auburn basketball as potential sports scene savior.

- My piece on Auburn starting freshman Jonathan Wallace at quarterback, and why it's a wise football as well as public relation-y type move.

- And my story on Auburn High School, winning however it has to. I liked how this one turned out.

Thank you.
