ESPN’s Chris Low Says a Lot about Auburn

Over the past week or so, ESPN’s SEC blogger, Chris Low, spent some time on the Plains to take in Spring practice. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that I have disliked lots of things that Low has written, but I see no major faults in any of the nine, yes nine, blogs and videos about Auburn that he has posted recently.

I’ve already done the dirty work for you and posted them all below. Will there be more? Maybe. If he puts more Auburn related stuff up, I’ll add them to this post. This way you won’t have to go to his site and rummage through his other posts about Alabama winning the title this year or how Trent Richardson is the state’s next Heisman winner. All Auburn stuff here.

– Low checks in at Auburn, not without mentioning that the last two champions have come from the state of Alabama. You know, that thing Bama fans say to try to make a positive out of something they actually hate.

– In this video, he talks to probable starter at the quarterback position, Barrett Trotter. For some reason he disabled embedding for the video. A true sign of someone who either doesn’t know what he’s doing or he wants to force you to go to his site to watch it. I know nothing about that, at all.

– Here’s more video of Low as he sticks the microphone in DE Nosa Eguae’s face.

– Following a post that brings up the fact that Alabama plays three teams coming off a bye this year, one more than any other team in the SEC (ONE MORE! It’s a cunspearsee PAWL!), Low talks about the foundation that Chizik is laying at Auburn.

– He must have forgotten to disable embedding because here’s video you don’t have to go to his site view. Low talks to probably the most well-spoken man on the team: Jeffery Whitaker.

– You probably already read this one because it’s been making the rounds and inspiring graphic designers worldwide. And why wouldn’t it? Did you have any idea that energy vampires existed before yesterday? Chizik was well aware. Plainsman Parking Lot steps away from the diamond and gives his two cents and this secret race of villains.

– You can’t talk about Auburn without talking about the wizard. You can’t talk about the wizard without talking about how he’s working with his sixth quarterback in six years. And apparently you can’t talk about Auburn without talking about how nobody returns and Malzahn will have the toughest job of his career this season.

– Remember when T’Sharvan Bell gave Greg McElroy a concussion? I do. It even inspired a lyric from T-WILL: Don’t forget my boy T-bell. He’s knocking QBs out da game. Chris Low talks to him in this super secret, ESPN-only video.

– The future star of the Auburn receiving corps, Emory Blake (did you know he was the son of Jeff Blake?), gets prodded by Low in this video.

That’s all for now. I’ll post others if he adds them.

Until I see strong indication otherwise, I will stand by Chris Low as a fair and balanced reporter for the SEC and for us. I felt that his post game recaps of this past season were fair and objective. He does not seem to have an agenda or to be airing out his personal opinions in place of balanced objective reporting. I actually found myself looking forward to reading his post game re-caps. These video interviews are consistent with what I expect from C-Low (although a little repetitive in his questioning). He can probably give T-Bell some tips on weight gaining strategies. Just sayin’. But we all have our crosses to bear. :o)

Good stuff……I believe AU will pull some shockers in 2011, haters beware

You have to look at Low like this: He’s the best journalist at ESPN. Sure, he’s a bit of a UA and UGA homer, predicting them to win it all and then making excuses when they don’t, but he’s no Joe Schad.

I agree, he is probably the best the have got, certainly the one that appears to be the least biased, still, I’m not that fond of him. I have sensed a distaste for Auburn in his previous reporting/commentary. However, having said that, he is the best of a foul bunch, in my opinion. Maybe, I’m just paranoid and testy when it comes to Auburn coverage after the last year we have had. I’m willing to give him another chance to be better

Hey, he’s no Thayer Evans! I have to say though that I like our AU vibe displayed here in these interviews. Like last year, we are staying humble, back to the fundamentals. These players are respectful, well spoken and optimistic for the future. We took last season one game at a time, never got ahead of ourselves. They speak like true students of the game, taking in the lessons of the sport and the direction from their coaches. Last year, we had a lot of breaks that went our way and it was no cake walk. I watched Arkansas State score the first touchdown of the season! I sense that this season will be similar with new leaders emerging and making us proud. WAR EAGLE!

Well obviously Alabama is going to be leaps and bounds better than Auburn this year. After all, Auburn lost a Heisman winner, a top 5 defensive lineman, their top wide receiver, starting quarterback, and more. All the proof you need. Rowwwwe Tahhhhd
