Auburn basketball will be lifted to heights they haven't seen since 1999.

"In providing students and faculty with a gun locker, the University has done nothing at all." Jordan, the locker at least provides a safe place to store weapons so they're not stolen from the glove box, the purse covered with a towel on the back floorboard, or under the seat where most women like yourself store it. It's ripe pickings for the car burglars, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

Hot tub and jacuzzi? How about being content with heat and AC? Move out to Wire Road in some decent trailer with others who enjoy sleeveless t-shirts and PBR.

Watch out for #1 and make sure not to step in #2. Good luck and godspeed.

It's what's wrong with this country....sense of self in front of team, community, or country. If you want to be potheads, be potheads, but don't play on a team where your selfishness brings down the others who commit 100%.

The seasonal drop in ratings will be directly proportional to the number arrests we have for minor drug violations. Hugs, not drugs guys.

IceTiger makes good points. The main problem is attracting enough students to the shows. I remember in 2004 when one of the great bluesmen still alive (Taj Mahal) played a show at the Supper Club. There were only 50-75 people there, and very few of the attendees were students. It's only gotten worse since then. I'll add that there are plenty of good musicians coming to the extended Auburn area. In just the past few years, I've seen Alabama Shakes, the Civil Wars, Jason Isbell (multiple times), Houndmouth, Shovels and Rope, Junior Brown, and many more great acts in Waverly or Opelika. That's not to mention the acts that come to Auburn with the Sundilla Concert Series or even local acts like the Larry Mitchell Band, which features a Grammy-award winner. As far as venues are concerned, why would anyone want to build a 3,500-seat venue when Auburn can't even sell out a bar?

An Auburn Visitor's Center would be nice in the old depot. Montgomery's visitor center is in the old depot.

Well, if anything, I find this article a bit entertaining, but not at all thought-provoking... The author is either quite naive, never worked an actual service industry job, or just scraping the bottom of the editorial barrel in a thinly-veiled attempt at being "edgy" by selectively overlooking certain fundamental differences in male and female fashion. Quite shockingly, dress codes apply in plenty of professional workplaces and in plenty of restaurants not only throughout Auburn, but even throughout the rest of the world! There are simply certain places where men and women are expected to uphold certain standards commonly associated with being well-dressed, fashionable, and hygienic. For example, men are at times burdened by the expectation to wear ties, dress coats, long pants, and they sadly just aren't allowed to wear skirts. I wish the author the best in his or her endeavors to learn more about the fundamentals of free markets and the expectations private establishments have for their clientele. Also, @phhamilton, I've worked in a couple of these establishments. The dress codes are race/sexual identity agnostic. If an individual dresses as though he or she endorses a certain lifestyle that's not in the best interests of the business, it's in that business' best interest, as well as their clienteles' best interest, that the individual isn't present. It's simply running a business and protecting an investment. @zac_ary pretty much has it right.

Good article Rachel. The new wave feminists such as yourself appear to be winning the day. Declaring oneself has exponentially become popular in the last few years and I think it's because of the stances that y'all take which are not hostile to men and housewives. It's still going to take a while to change the cultural norms as it always does. Those who don't know any different have a hard time adapting to the change and inevitably we have to wait until they become a minority by educating the newer generations. Perception is a fickle beast. The previous poster is a good example. To them it seems like all is even steven in the world but that's because it's one of the most difficult things to see from another's eyes. Keep up the good work, things are changing clearer minds will prevail. Cheers.
