Zep Jasper's got that dawg in him.
In the third edition of our Auburn basketball player deep dives, let's take a closer look at what makes another season of the Honey Badger so intriguing.
This week is the annual EDSBS Charity Bowl. Once again, college football Internet titans Spencer Hall, Holly Anderson and several others are raising money for New American Pathways — a nonprofit in Atlanta that helps refugees get settled here in the United States.
The Charity Bowl is all about doing good in the name of beating your college’s rival teams. Last year, Auburn fans had a stronger showing than usual in the final standings in 2021, but they’re just inside the top 50 for 2022 as of Tuesday night. Let’s raise that.
As mentioned on the podcast Monday, we’re doing the same thing we did this time last year: This week, 100% of all new subscription money we get at The Auburn Observer will be donated toward Auburn’s collective total. So, if you subscribe, give a gift subscription to someone or convince them to subscribe between now and Friday afternoon, all of that money will directly go to helping refugees right down the road.
If you’re reading this and would like to give to New American Pathways, click the button below. Any current subscriber who emails proof of their Charity Bowl donation to the1andonlyJF@gmail.com this week will get a free month added to their subscription. Click the button below to donate.

There’s a certain meme that has gotten somewhat popular on the sports corners of Twitter over the last several months.
Normally, this writer wouldn’t identify with it too much. This newsletter, as most people reading this already know, is big on stats and analytics.
But, sometimes, there are certain players that turn the vibe of The Observer from the guy on the left to the guy on the right here:
For Auburn basketball, that player is Zep Jasper.
