A source told an iPhone fan blog that the new iPhone will launch July 17.

Ghostbusters 3 (movie) gets the go-ahead!!!

Aykroyd said Sigourney Weaver is on board now, as are the original squad of ectoplasmic specialists — Aykroyd, Bill MurrayHarold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Murray’s presence was the pivot point in making a third film happen. He holds a one-fifth controlling interest in the property rights and has been seen as the most reluctant to return to the paranormal comedy. Aykroyd said that is true but that it’s more nuanced than the public portrayal of the situation.

Kiffin twitter’s recruits name, more drama for TN

If you haven’t heard by now, Tennessee’s Lane Kiffin is back in the news.

One of his assistants in the football office went on Kiffin’s Twitter page on Tuesday and mentioned a recruit by name that had just committed to the Vols. That’s obviously against NCAA rules, and Tennessee plans to self-report the violation to the NCAA, according to athletic director Mike Hamilton.

This particular infraction sounds pretty innocent, even though the secondary violations are starting to mount on Kiffin’s watch, but it raises a few bigger picture questions:

  • What all is the NCAA going to allow in terms of the information coaches put on their Facebook and Twitter pages?
  • Who’s actually putting this stuff up, and what checks and balances are being used to make sure nothing goes up that’s damaging in any way?
  • Shouldn’t the head coach be aware of everything that’s going up if it’s being presented as his page?
  • Will it get to the point where coaches start breaking news about their program on their Facebook and Twitter pages?

So here it is, AuburnTron’s first annual Preaseason ALL SEC Team.  You might be thinking, “damn, that sure is biased”, well, it is.  This is a preseason ALL SEC team from an Auburn fan’s perspective, so although most of the picks were based on past performances of SEC players, some of the picks are based on what is expected out of them this year.  It’s not completley biased, bammers were allowed on the list, and not every player is from AU.   I hope you enjoy it, please feel free to comment on anyone YOU think should be on the list!
