IF YOU grew up out on the rural route in the long ago when you got The Anniston Star a day late (by mail) and read it by a coal oil lamp, you know I’ve just reached into the past for a bit of plagiarism which, if you live by the word (such as journalism) and use someone else’s words as your own, well, it’s a cardinal sin.

IN THE 20 years I spent as a sports writer for this newspaper, one of my favorite places was Auburn, The Loveliest Village on The Plains. Knowing and visiting with Auburn’s football coach, the late Ralph “Shug” Jordan, is one of my forever soft memories.
