I would think this will pass the 50k mark before noon tomorrow. I could easily see this passing 500k

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but funeral arrangements for Rod and Paula have been set

quote:

The funeral service for Paula and Rod Bramblett will take place on Thursday, May 30 at 2 p.m. inside Auburn Arena. Visitation will be from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m.

The service is open to the public. There will be a private burial for the family following the service. Rev. Dr. George Mathison will officiate the funeral.





I wish I could go and pay my respects, but I won't be able to get off work

Not close to what Butch donated, but I just saw Hugh Nall donated $100 as well. Tony LaRussa as well (who knows if its actually the manager). Bob Shoop $200 (MS ST DC). Ben Leard $500. Chandler Cox. Tucker Tuberville. I saw Muschamp yesterday too.


Its quite amazing the outpour from not only the Auburn family, but the sports world in general. I still cant really believe it.

I still can't wrap my head around this tragedy, Auburn radio will not be the same. I hope whoever replaces Rob is someone that loves and is as passionate about Auburn as Rod was. Fly high Rod, may Gob bless your family.

David Housel donated as well. Terri Flournoy too. Scott Stricklin put up a large sum as well. There’s been a ton of support from those well known in the Auburn community

Yes. Someone can have a great radio voice but when that person has a genuine love for their team, it really makes the resulting experience more meaningful. I still get shivers listening to old Jim Fyffe calls. You can hear in both his and Rod’s voices just how much they loved all things Auburn.

The fund started out with a $100,000 goal and is now over $200,000. War Eagle!
Does anyone know the significance of the donations ending in a “9?” For example, lots of people giving $109.

"He ran the missed field goal back 109 yards!" Admins, have you checked this guy's Auburn credentials?

By WSFA Staff | May 28, 2019 at 2:37 PM CDT - Updated May 28 at 3:11 PM

LEE COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The investigation into the crash that killed Rod and Paula Bramblett is ongoing, according to the Auburn Police Department.

Tuesday, APD released a statement saying its preliminary investigation has not found that alcohol or distracted phone usage played a role in the crash. The police department did say that additional information is being examined, however.

Investigators continue to assess the factors that claimed the couple’s lives and seriously injured a 16-year-old driver in the other vehicle.

The crash probe will include an examination of crash and vehicle data, toxicology, accident reconstruction, as well as a determination of speed or other contributing factors. Investigators confirmed the Brambletts were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

The original goal was $25,000 and it hit that in less than 6 hours, has been upped to $50k then $100k.

The most famous call of Rod's career was the 109 yard kick six.
