Alabama and Auburn on the same team on one point at least...
Roll Frickin Tide
Oh, really? Ping to the Auburn list! What do y’all think? Peace?
Well, duh. Roll Tide!
We’ll see you in Atlanta.
See? No peace.
Considering we live, work, worship and in many cases sleep together just about every day I'd say about 85% of that whole deal is created in the feverish minds of the media. They can make a good buck peddling the loons attached to both programs to out-of-staters who don't know any better that the weirdos are not the norm. I wouldn't say they are exceptions, just not the norm.
That said, come Iron Bowl Gameday....
Alabama is a conservative state but we have our fair share of liberals too unfortunately. I tend to believe they are more irritating here because they have that huge chip on their shoulder.
I think right now Auburn fans are more upset with Chizik than anything else.
Now, now. ..
Nope. I would gladly trade this season if our oaks would live. That may be just me, but those oaks have a lot of wonderful memories for me, from the time I was seven and living on West Magnolia.
That has been stolen.
We support the football team because we love Auburn. They ... Worship the bear.
War 1 win 6 losses Eagle! Keep on War Eagling 1-6!!!
Bama has some tough games coming up. Missippi State is undefeated. Who wouldda thunk it!?!!!? And then there is LSU. We take nothing for granted.

See my previous post. The Auburn family has ties to Auburn. The bama fans just support that team.
It should be a good one. Florida actually has me worried. One thing is for sure, the SEC title game will decide the National Champion.
"The Bear" is always capitalized. And you must stand at attention at your keyboard while typing it.
I’m glad I have an iPad else you would owe me a new keyboard. Diet coke hurts when snorted out the nose.
I do think Florida is a year away from really challenging Bama, but they’ve surprised me this year, their defense has been real stout. I think they can hang in there with Bama, but I don’t know if our offensive is good enough to control their defensive line.
Florida has no passing game. If Bama stuffs the run then they got nothing. The Gator defense is impressive, however.
My son and my money go to UF. My heart bleeds Crimson. Roll Tide.
Maybe your football team all feel like you do and are throwing the games to give the trees a rest from the years of damaging toilet paper clean up.
I would gladly crawl through Tuscaloosa and even shout “Roll Tide” (until I HAD to bite my tongue) in order to vote out the Occupier-in-Chief on Nov. 6th.............WAR EAGLE!!!
Is that you, Harvey Updyke?
War damn Eagle.. Even though we suck this year..
GO DAWGS and War Eagle.
Roll Tide ! War Eagle !
(one daughter AU, one daughter UA).
I've got it worse. My son goes to Georgia.
That’s pretty much how I see it, what Florida is lacking is that Harvin-like player that defenses have to fear. But I’ve been impressed with Driskel’s progress this year, he looked pretty bad in the Bowling Green game, but stepped it up in College Station, and that was the turning point.
Not surprising. We are conservative in the South.
My Dad went to Florida, my Mom to Florida State College for Women. They met as a blind date for Gator Growl. Brother went undergrad Florida, law school at FSU and teaches law seminars at Miami. One sister through Auburn; another sister with son at Alabama; third sister through FSU undergrad, law school and teaches law at FSU. Multiple nieces and nephews through Auburn and FSU.
At least we all hate Georgia.
I figure Mark Richt has to be the ultimate Gator-Hater....played QB at Miami, Assistant Coach at FSU, and Head Coach at Georgia, that’s pretty much the trifecta.
Roll Tide and Go State! (except when they’re playing Bama) I do occasionally cheer for Ole Miss, too, since my BFF and her fam are Rebels through and through. I wouldn’t trade my years at Bama for anything. It’s where I met and married my husband and where three of our children were born. Wonderful place. Wonderful people. Out here in Tucson, SEC fans tend to stick together.
I am amused how quickly this thread went from politics to football.... While disappointed, I love my Auburn Tigers -win, lose, or draw!! I think you picked the best time to be home (last year) for many reasons :)
(What? It’s not like the folks at South Carolina ever had anything much to celebrate until the Ol’ Ball Coach showed up, cut ‘em some slack.)
I must confess, I didn’t read the article. I guessed that it was support for Romney but my point is the transcendance of the rivalry. Remember the blood drives in the 60s and 70s? It was which school will demonstrate its patriotism and support of our fighting men by giving the most blood. Then, directly after the war, it was show which school has more compassion. But at the heart of it was GIVE MORE THAN THE BAMA STUDENTS!
Of course, the medicoes needed to be aware that blood from Tigers is either burnt orange or navy blue.
We may come together on this one point, but the war is still on.
You are right about the profs being liberal. My own parents, can you believe it, are yellow-dog democrats. Also, billy-bob gibson, of the o administration, grew up in The Village.
Your are also right about the time for being at home. If I had to be there, that was a good time to pick.
Ties? sure pal. Keep rooting. Go Vandy. 1-6. 1-6. And even Scam Newton is stinking up the NFL.
You seem angry. What precisely have I done to you that has you upset?
Angry? Who is angry? This is FOOTBALL. I was born and raised in Alabama. Alabama is all about football. From peewee to the major colleges. In fact I will watch a good high school game any day, even over college. The kids enjoy it more and it ain’t about getting into the NFL. If you are a barn fan, then you know this Alabama vs. Auburn hatefest! Otherwise, you are a pretender. Good grief, get a life.
Amen. C/) 89’ tide bites, we are right!
