Auburn has picked up its second commitment in as many days. This time, the Tigers landed a three-star athlete from Georgia.

This is off topic but it's not worthy of a thread. Why is auburn called barn/barners?
Google tells me this:
A term used to describe fans and/or alumni of Auburn University. The term originated, in part, from the fact that Auburn University is located in a more rural area of Alabama and has a large Department of Agriculture. Additionally, former University of Alabama head football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant referred to Auburn as a "cow college." Since Bryant is a god of sorts to most Alabama Crimson Tide football fans, this solidified the term. It is important to note that this term is most often used by Alabama football fans who couldn't tell you anything about the school unless it is football-related.
That part about Bear calling them a cow college is hilarious.

Thanks Stoked +1
The cow college is hilarious.
Cow College is also used in referring to Clemson since they had a big agriculture and dairy dept.
Didn't know that either, but I don't know much about Clemson in general.
