"Auburn Football: Every Day" set to debut
From the first whistle of fall camp to the final week of the upcoming season, a new documentary style TV show set to debut Sept. 4 will give Auburn football fans a behind-the-scenes look at the program as the Gene Chizik Era unfolds on the Plains.
Called "Auburn Football: Every Day," the dynamic series will give our great fans more of what they want - an inside look at the inner-workings of the football program throughout the entire 2009 season.
The Auburn ISP Sports Network will produce the show in association with Authentic Films, which won rave reviews for producing a first-of-its-kind reality-based show chronicling Maryland football, "Terrapin Rising."
After watching early previews of footage shot at practices and summer graduation when four of our football players graduated, I can assure you it will be must-watch television for the Auburn Family.
The exclusive behind-the-scenes access given to the film crew by Coach Chizik will offer viewers a glimpse into the lives of Auburn coaches and players like never before. From close-ups of fall camp drills to passionate post-practice speeches by the head coach, the show will tell a compelling story of the season soon to unfold.
The new show is part of our efforts to capture the energy and excitement surrounding Auburn football and share it with an audience of current fans and future Tigers.
"Auburn Football: Every Day" will be offered across Alabama and throughout the Southeast on television stations as well as the Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) regional cable network. It can also be watched from anywhere in the world at www.auburntigers.com. The show will air either on Friday nights or Saturday mornings in all markets. (Check local listings for show times in your area).
"Auburn Football: Every Day" will replace the traditional Auburn Football preview show, but "The Auburn Football Review" featuring Coach Chizik will continue to air on Sundays across Alabama and on regional cable networks including CSS.
I want to commend the Auburn ISP Sports Network for working with us and meeting our mutually shared goal of elevating Auburn's television offerings to a new level. The Auburn Network has a rich history of producing high-quality shows, and the addition of "Auburn Football: Every Day" coupled with format changes and upgrades to its other shows will help us better tell the great Auburn story.
More information about the new show, as well as weekly webisodes that will give you a taste of the program, can be found at www.auburntigers.com leading up to the show's Sept. 4 debut.
Thanks to TUF members
I want to personally thank each of you who has continued to support Auburn Athletics through your contributions to the Tigers Unlimited football ticket priority program in the midst of these challenging economic times.
Year after year, many of you sacrifice so that you can enjoy the rich tradition of Auburn football that means so much to all of us. On behalf of the 500-plus student-athletes who wear the Auburn orange and blue, I want to thank you for the support you show at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum, Plainsman Park or our other venues but also for making it possible to meet one of our most important goals - educating and graduating our student-athletes.
It costs more than $8 million in scholarships alone to educate our student-athletes, and that of course does not include the many resources dedicated to support services that help them succeed in and out of the classroom.
The loyalty of the Auburn Family makes it possible for us to continue to pursue our five goals: Winning, graduating our student-athletes, managing our fiscal affairs in a sound manner, complying with the rules and providing a positive game-day experience. Without your support, achieving those goals simply would not be possible.
Thanks again for all that you do, and we look forward to seeing you in Auburn.
God Bless and War Eagle!
