ATLANTA - The Steve Spurrier of the new millennium doesn't gig opposing coaches with one-liners. He doesn't run up the score for giggles as Spurrier did in his heyday coaching Florida in the 1990s.
He didn't win a Heisman Trophy as a beloved college quarterback, or a national championship as a head coach
He doesn't have any nicknames, like "The Ol' Ball Coach," "Darth Visor" or "Steve Superior."
But the one thing Auburn first-year coach Gus Malzahn does have in common with Spurrier, who now coaches South Carolina - besides wearing a visor - is a desire to burn scoreboards to the ground.
(CNN) -- A 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck early Sunday off Indonesia, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake rattled a remote swath of sea between the Pacific and Indian oceans, north of Australia and east of Timor-Leste, some 5.6 miles (9 kilometers) deep, according to the U.S. agency.
It was centered approximately 212 miles (340 kilometers) west-northwest of Saumlaki in Indonesia's Tanimbar Islands, 217 miles east-northeast of Dili, Timor-Leste, and 226 miles of Ambon, Indonesia.
Neither the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center nor the Japan Meteorological Agency issued tsunami warnings or advisories immediately after the tremor.

"Direct hits were confirmed," said a statement from the Israel Defense Forces.
Palestinian security sources in Gaza told CNN that a training camp west of Gaza City was hit. Medical sources said no injuries were reported.
The Israeli military said the strikes came after its "Iron Dome" defense system intercepted a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip above the city of Ashkelon. Another rocket landed in the area and had not been located,
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner called the air strike "an immediate response to the terrorist aggression and its infrastructure in Gaza."

(CNN) -- A 7.3 magnitude earthquake happened early Saturday in the Pacific Ocean about 200 miles east of Japan's main island, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The Japanese Meteorological Agency issued a tsunami advisory for the Japanese coastal areas including the Fukushima prefecture, warning people to leave the coast but adding that "no tsunami damage is expected."
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there is no widespread tsunami threat to the Pacific region.
Saturday's quake happened at about 2:10 a.m. local time, with an epicenter about 203 miles east-northeast of Tokyo, the USGS said. The quake hit at a depth of about 6 miles.
The Fukushima prefecture was where a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami damaged several nuclear reactors in March 2011. More than 15,000 people were killed in that quake and tsunami, and material damage related to the incident was estimated to cost about $300 billion.
(CNN) -- Pakistani officials have for years secretly endorsed the U.S. drone program, even picking out at least one target for such an attack, according to a Washington Post report.
Neither the White House, the U.S. State Department nor the Pakistani Foreign Ministry would comment on the story, which said top secret CIA documents and Pakistani memos obtained by the Post described at least 65 such strikes between late 2007 and late 2011.
The US has defended its drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan, saying it takes "extraordinary care" to ensure they comply with international law.
The unmanned raids targeting terror suspects were a "course of action least likely to result in the loss of innocent life", the White House said.
