Tiger Tidbits, July 14th

SEC Media Days, Fall Practice and the best of recruiting season is just around the corner. That means kickoff isn't far away. Find out a few facts from this week regarding the Auburn football program.

  • SEC Media Days will once again take place in Hoover, AL at the Wynfrey Hotel on July 21st-23rd. Auburn will share the 8:30–11:10 a.m. slot with Tennessee. Per the SEC, "Auburn and Head Coach Gene Chizik will be bringing:

Josh Bynes (LB, 6-2, 239, Sr., Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.)

Led team and 7th in SEC with 104 total tackles - 2009

Aairon Savage (DB, 5-11, 200, Sr., Albany, Ga.)
All-SEC performer before missing last two seasons due to injury – 2008-09

Lee Ziemba (OT, 6-8, 320, Sr., Rogers, Ark.)
Second-team All-SEC and has started every game of his career - 2009

  • Following Media Days, The Greater Birmingham Auburn Club will be hosting the final Tiger Trek tour of the year, hosted at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center in Birmingham. Doors open at 5:30, and Gene Chizik, John Pawloski, Stan White, Rod Bramblett and Aubie will be in attendance. 
  • An update on 2010 signee Shon Coleman, per his site: "We are out of Phase 2, and now into Phase 3.  The worst of the chemo is now over and Shon came through like a pro.  Minimal side effects, no hair loss and he only dropped a small amount of weight. The power of prayer is amazing.  Everyone's prayers have brought us this far, and I KNOW he will make it through the remaining treatments without issue." We continue to wish Shon the best for a full recovery.
  • In a quick recruiting tidbit, MSU commit Jermaine Whitehead says it's not likely that he'll switch over to AU. "MSU is a great place. Auburn is a place I like, but I think Mississippi State is a better fit for me. I'd put it at 99.9 percent that I sign with State," said Whitehead.
