The Kick-Six is going to be ground zero for Iron Bowl needling for years to come, so it's the polar opposite of surprising that the Cullman County Auburn Club found a way to reference it in their preparation for Gus Malzahn's appearance at the boosters' club Thursday night.

Of course, Malzahn doesn't need the help when it comes to poking the Tigers' cross-state rivals, as he showed when calling out a game of bingo for the residents of Oak Park Nursing Home in this week's team outreach project.

"Zing"? Zing.
