it's great to be an auburn tiger.

college football takes a precedence over most things,
and if it's auburn that is playing then you can bet i'm watching.

even though i'm utah, i do watch all the games that are aired
and i make sure to listen to all of those that aren't on tv.

so, saturday - i got to watch auburn play south carolina..
thank you dearly, ESPN.. you truly made my day!

during the first half, auburn acted like they didn't know how to play.
yano.. exactly how they did in the game against clemson.
well, this seriously makes me want to pull my hair out!

but chizik must have given them a nice, little talk during halftime
because when that second half rolled around, my real boys came out!
recovered fumbles, interceptions, touchdowns.
oh, it was surely a heck of a game.

and they won..
by more than three points, 
boy was i glad we ended that two week streak.

as much as i loved getting to watch it on tv,
deep down, with every fiber in me, i wished that
i was in jordan-hare stadium, decked out in auburn gear,
yelling WAR EAGLE at the top of my lungs,
and spending my day in the loveliest village on the plains.

my team is now ranked number ten,
and that puts a great big smile on my face.

these, too, makes me smile.
i stumbled across these and felt i should share it with y'all.

"Auburn might be the most charming campus, town, atmosphere
and environment in all of the Southeast, It's just a great mix of tradition,
academic emphasis and football. If you have never been to Auburn,
 just walk down College. As you go past some of the shops and some of
the restaurants and Toomers Corner, it's just a wonderful experience."
ESPN correspondent Tom Rinaldi

"Thank you, Auburn. You set the standard for what SEC football should be.
If we have to lose, we'll lose there every time. From what we saw,
you gave us the best of the South and the best college football has to offer."
The Daily Gamecock

those are both from this season, but i saw this article too.
however, it is from 2004, but it still stands true.

"Imagine you have been married to the same woman for more
than 30 years, you love her more than anything - nothing could ever
change that. You have shared many of your best memories with her
and would never leave her under any circumstances. Then you spend
a day with a woman who insome ways is more beautiful than your wife...
you may never see her again...but you won't forget her for a while either.

Maryland is my wife...Auburn is the other woman."
- ESPN's Scott Van Pelt, Maryland Alum on his Auburn game experience.

all i have to say is, IT'S GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER!
