Perusing the ESPN website, a familiar name appeared.
It was neither LeBron James nor Johnny Manziel. Actually, it was GCSAA member Dr. Scott McElroy, who was quoted in an article that ESPN had picked up from AL.com, which covers news in the state of Alabama.
This was quite a story from the instant classic Auburn vs. Alabama football game.
No, this is not about that amazing and stunning length-of-the-field return for a touchdown last Saturday by Auburn's Chris Davis of a missed field goal by Alabama on the last play of the game that lifted the Tigers past the then-No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide 34-28 for a spot in this Saturday's Southeastern Conference championship game against Missouri.
Instead it was a story about workers who were cleaning up post-game at Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium. And they found this: Cremated remains near Auburn's sideline.
Although bone fragments were detected, it wasn't determined if they were human remains or perhaps from a pet. McElroy, associate professor for turfgrass and weed science at Auburn, saw the remains for himself.
"It could have been grandma or it could have been grandma's dog," McElroy, a 10-year Educator member of the association, told AL.com. "It happens a lot more than you think."
