Philip Lutzenkirchen, a former all-SEC and Auburn fan favorite at tight end, died this past weekend in a car accident in rural Georgia. At just 23 years of age, Lutzenkirchen died far too early, and will be missed dearly by Auburn and SEC football fans alike.
Our hearts are heavy at SB Nation as well, as Lutzenkirchen began contributing to our network this past year. He helped add to our network's coverage of spring practice and the NFL Draft, among other topics. It was truly wonderful to have a former SEC standout footballer contributing to the exceptional quality produced by the network's mothership, and we will miss his thoughts and perspectives dearly.
Our hearts go out to Lutzenkirchen's friends, family, and fans. RIP.

- The 2016 recruiting class (yes, we're looking that far ahead), feels that they can outshine the 2013 recruiting class. To their credit, they've already got the nation's top wideout, D.K. Metcalf, committed for that group.
- "Startling athleticism" gives Donte Moncrief an edge in Indy. It's crazy to think what that Colts receiver corps could look like this year.
- ESPN.com ranks our contest with Auburn as our most important on the season. "How in the heck ain't it the Egg Bowl," a bewildered State fan trolling Ole Miss-related articles asks unironically.
