AUBURN, Ala. — Former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen died in a wreck early Sunday morning outside of LaGrange, Ga.
He was 23.
Lutzenkirchen’s fatal accident occurred in Troup County, just southeast of LaGrange, at approximately 3:06 a.m. Sunday morning, according to Master Trooper B.N. Talley of the Georgia State Patrol, who responded to the scene.
“It happened at the intersection of Upper Big Springs Road and Lower Big Springs Road,” Talley said. “The vehicle was a 2006 Chevy Tahoe and the driver missed a stop sign at the intersection of those two roads, which is more or less a ‘T-intersection.’ They traveled through the intersection off into a churchyard. They were out of control for about 450 feet.”

At that point, Talley said, the vehicle overturned, ejecting three of the four passengers.
“Philip was one of them,” Talley said,” and he was killed at the scene.”
The driver of the vehicle, Joseph Davis, was also killed.
Lutzenkirchen, who was seated behind Davis, was not wearing his seat belt. Talley said they “are still looking into” how fast the vehicle was traveling when it ran through the stop sign.
Updates to come.

Alabama Coach Nick Saban gets angry after an illegal substitution penalty on his team in the second quarter the Iron Bowl at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Friday, Nov. 26, 2010. (The Birmingham News/ Mark Almond)
It seems the newest football stadium in Tuscaloosa is cursed.
And what might that curse be?
Bryant-Denny Stadium – better known as “Jordan-Hare West” – has proven to be a losing grounds for the Crimson Tide when they play the Auburn Tigers.
With the direction of Head Coach Gene Chizik, leadership of Quarterback Cameron Newton, and the fearsome quarterback sacking power of Defensive Tackle Nick Fairley, Auburn proved yet again that their end game is a powerhouse, and why they’re ranked #2 nationally, and remain undefeated, now 12-0, and 8-0 in the SEC.
Alabama was first on the board, and in a big way. Quarterback Greg McElroy drove consecutive first downs the field on each play, resulting in what turned out to be three consecutive scoring drives each time ‘Bama had possession of the ball in the first quarter. However, …Continue…

Formerly known as “Dooley’s Dogs” for late head coach Vince Dooley, the Georgia Bulldogs this year are certainly nothing less than a disgrace to the memory of their once-great team, and renown coach.
Certainly not the to-be-feared “junkyard dogs” that they perhaps once were, this year, the Georgia Bulldogs have a 5-5 record, and a 3-4 record in the South Eastern Conference, are going up against the UNDEFEATED Auburn Tigers, whose 10-0 record, and 6-0 in the SEC make them more than a formidable opponent. By most accounts, it will be a slaughter-fest by the Tigers, whose fans’ “WAR EAGLE!” cries will echo throughout the Plains… and in the ears of the Georgia fans and team as they return home, tail tucked between their legs.
Seeing that no Mississippi mud stuck to Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton, he is by all accounts …Continue…
