"He came over to me and whispered in my ear, 'That's my new ride.'"

Auburn held a Junior Day on Saturday. As the prospective future Tigers headed to Auburn Arena to catch a basketball game, Gus Malzahn pulled up in his new ride and offered to take a Dawson, Ga., athlete Tray Bishop for a ride.

I'll let him take it from here.

"When (Malzahn) pulled up, he came over to me and whispered in my ear, 'That's my new ride,'" Bishop told "He was like, 'Before you leave I want to spin a few blocks with you.' Before the basketball game he came and got me and told me a little bit about the car and we drove."

Whispered? He whispered?

Far be it for me to raise a finger at Bishop's choice of adjective, but, whispered?

"It was crazy," Bishop said. "I never pictured myself riding in something like that. I see sport cars all the time but I've never pictured myself riding, like I got where I wanted to be in life."
