Ladies and gentlemen, I give you....failure on so many levels by so many ruhtards. I would like to know other fans opinions. When you think Alabama and rivalry does Tennessee jump to the front of your mind and if so why?
I agree Tennessee is a rival but not close to AU in intensity or scope.

That might be cool if I could read more than 3 posts.
You must be young if you don't understand why some fans consider Tennessee a bigger rival. I don't but it's not absurd that some do.
Didn't bother to check that as I didn't figure it was worthy of VIP. Basically a bunch of Bama elitists saying that AU doesn't deserve the title of being a rival to Bama and that AUs entire reason for continuing its football program is because of the Bama game and Bama doesn't need them. UT is somehow our biggest rival and AU shouldn't be considered. AU's rivals are Georgia and Somehow UF. But not Bama.
I'm 28. I see why they are a rival and maybe why some really older fans would say our biggest. But only because we didn't play AU every year back in the day. That is the reason why UT would even be considered. The mere reason we didn't play AU for so long is proof of the rivalry.
I don't care if it's cancelled.
Why are the even talking about cancelling it? What prompted the discussion?
Well, that's just stupid. The Iron Bowl is one of the 3 best rivalry games in college football (at least when it comes to passion of the fans, even if the game hasn't been great recently). Why would anyone want to end that?
Here is the first post of the thread, Not sure what USA sports is that he is referring to.
"USA sports says it is time to end the AL/Au rivalvy To quote a part of the statement, "Ala has very little benefit to gain from playing Auburn" Ala people expect to win that game.Move AU to the east division, or better yet, move them to the ACC to face clemson, and then they can determine which is the better tiger"
How soon my Bama brothers forget the 6 fingers they held up.
Yea that's dumb. They're not going to move them so why talk about it.
I have no idea. I couldn't believe it myself. I had no idea that these type of rogue Bama fans existed. Saying Auburn isn't a rival? I mean how dumb do you have to be...
It's like FSU fans saying that UF isn't your rival. Or Ohio St. fans saying Michigan isn't their rival. It's like they were just introduced to football and don't know any better. I wish that was the case.
I hear people try and argue that we should drop UF and I just laugh.
Sadly, there is no doubt many of them truly believe that.
TURDS ALL UP IN THIS MUG. /// "2010 Auburn Tigers, my favorite team. Unbeaten in all ways." -- Dan Wetzel, April 4, 2013, 6:29 p.m.
Makes no sense at all. Two bad year in a row doesn't mean too much. Auburn is 6-4 against in the past 10 years and 11-9 in the past 20. I would call it a solid rivalry. Both teams have had bad teams in this period of time and very good teams in this period of time. 12 of the 20 games were won by 7 points or less. Auburn was shut out 2 times and Alabama was shut out once. That would be a bad decision. If I remember correctly Bama did not want Auburn to go to the east recently.
Oh there's no doubt they do. Would like for you to be able to read the other responses. And some of them have made there way over here to down vote my rational view point without offering their own. Don't get me wrong I can't stand Auburn and love beating you guys. I'm sure you are the same about Bama, most of my AU friends are the same way. I love the rivalry. Doesn't mean I think they aren't our rivals because of the run we've been on lately. If we lose to Tennessee I don't have to hear about it, it just sucks that we lost. If we lose to Auburn it's a 364 day nightmare. That is why AU is our biggest rival.
You're too normal to be a bama fan. You won't fit in well with the majority of BOL.
OP should be kicked in the nuts for bringing the stupidity of BOL posters over here
Guess I agree too. How we gonna do this spread eagle style?
the IB is a classic plus it's easy to get large blocks of cheap tickets in odd years.
You are a ginger and your opinion doesn't matter to any of us.
Lol It all makes sense now..
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
Oh man, you got me so good.
Seriously shut your dumb ass up if this is all you got you white trash piece of dog sh**.
