Erk Russell: A Good Auburn Man Moves On

A lot of people never knew that Erk Russell was an Auburn man. A good Auburn man. He was the school's last four-sport letterman. All of you have heard by now of his death in Statesboro, Georgia, on Friday. College football can be a strange thing.

The same can be said of Pat Dye - just in reverse.
