We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Who from Auburn was claiming moral victories?
Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
hmm didn't realize a 2 year series made a rival... and year after year try harder and work on your grammar kid
Never said anything about two years having to make a rival. I pointed out that aub poster hasn't had much to choose from the last two years unless you consider Samford a rival.
Actually 2011 miss st would be good for auburn. In fact msu has been the auburn measuring stick the last 5 years. Certainly not uga or bama.
Is this a serious question? Did you not see the email that was sent out to the entire AU nation following the 2009 IB ( I believe it was from someone in the AD but not 100% sure).
"But then something happened. . ."
Winning by wide rights and left.
So many great things about the 2009 iron bowl. But Facebook afterwards was great...so many 'it's great to be an auburn tiger'. We stayed and cheered 30 min after the game. These are the same aubs who were 'all in' 'family' god thing 'I stand with cam' crowd the next year.
Then the fun really began...from all the bs up above to: 2011-2012
We love auburn, not auburn football. (Life long multi generation season ticket holders on the 50)
You only went to alabama because of football.
Of course the 1/2 empty home stadium at half time was fun to watch. I guess it wasn't great to be an auburn tiger.
Off to work, have to pay for government leeches.
The best is when your rival, who you have dominated for years, finally is having a decent season. They have a shot to make the conference championship game if they can beat you in the final game of the season. The game is at their place. Several of the ESPN idiots have picked them to upset you. Their fans act like asshats while you're tailgating, acting like their is a 0% chance they lose this time. When you get into the stadium and get to your seats, you notice that you are completely surrounded by their fans, who continue to remind you that your reign of terror is coming to an end.
Then your team completely dismantles them 38-0.
Still not sure what you're talking about....
I do love Auburn and Auburn football.. Not on facebook so I'm still not sure what you're getting at here....
So then you prefer FSU beating themselves as opposed to Miami beating them straight up ?
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
My aubie friends. Lifelong season ticket holders...trying to cope with 2011-2012 would say they love auburn. Not just auburn football. They also have tremendous animosity towards auburn or any fan bases side walk fan base. Coping mechanism to make them feel better because of the lack of football success and having to see bammers celebrate. They'd say 'they didn't even go to school there'. I just smiled and let them banter.
As you have said, a W is a W. I think FSU might have 4 more titles if it weren't for Miami. Not sure if it's luck on our side in those games or what. I was at the third one in the OB... from my seat it looked like it was right down the middle.
You just remember why you are a doctorate of veterinary medicine right now...
Why So Serious?
I'm sorry, the way you talk you would think y'all have been great for decades and that we have always sucked, just remember, y'all got us the last two years but we own the 2000s. 7 out of the last 11, just soak that in, slowly...
haha, I'm a DVM because I worked my butt off and because I was fortunate enough to be blessed with enough intelligence to get through the curriculum.
Auburn has a great school though that is only getting better and I enjoyed my time there.
I know man just messin with ya, my dad graduated vet school from AU. He always told me there were 3 or 4 guys who grew up huge bama fans or went undergrad at bama but had to do vet school at AU.
Can't find it on the internet, but it was everywhere after the game. It was basically an email that was more or less written in literary prose describing the magnificent scene that day tailgating, the pregame fanfare, and the first 59 minutes of the game, but then something happened. . . (of course the something that was being talked about was UA's game winning drive). It then goes on to say that AU was more or less the victors that day as the fans stayed in the stands for 30+ minutes after the game cheering the team and shouting "it's great to be and Auburn Tiger", while Alabama fans exited in shocked silence with their jaws dropped thankful to have escaped.
Here is a pretty good article written by a fan after the game with a similar premise. Maybe someone else still has a copy of that email and can help me out.
There’s an old saying that there is no moral victory in defeat. That may be true. But today, the Auburn Tigers reached a place where they haven’t been in a while...
Most likely you're just doing this to stick it to hubcity (and for the record I don't blame you), but c'mon man. Yes y'all owned the '00s, but the whole "7 out of 11" argument drives me crazy. You can literally frame that anyway you want. We've won 4 out of 5, with 3 of them being American History X curb stomp type beatings.

Something Unexpected Happened
This was an email that I received today. I thought it was so great I wanted to share it. It is about the Auburn family and the pride that comes with being an Auburn tiger. Judd and I were at the Iron Bowl and were able to witness the experience described below first hand. It's great to be an Auburn Tiger! War Eagle!
"It was a low key day. Alabama was suppose to dismantle Auburn . Their Heisman candidate had a national stage to take center spotlight. But something unexpected happened.
Our tailgate was a fun morning. We hosted many Bama friends who came by.The food was fabulous, the music was toe tapping, and the weather was perfect.
We went to our traditional "Tiger Walk" and cheered the team and coaches into the stadium- like gladiators into their arena knowing a hungry undefeated opponent was on the other side pacing and suiting up for a David and Goliath moment. But something unexpected happened. The sea of orange filled the sun-kissed stadium. Every seat was filled.Our Eagle,Tiger, flew around the tops of our heads and landed midfield. The teams entered to thunderous applause, fanfare and frenzied fans. Bama fans wore stickers that said " Fear the shutout". But something unexpected happened.
Auburn, fueled by the fans and faith of spirit with hard work, threw everything they had at Alabama . And for 56 minutes Auburn prevailed.The score, the stats, the noise, the pride- For 56 minutes we owned it.But something unexpected happened.
Alabama put together a successful last minute drive and scored the go ahead points. The TV announcers loved the battle for ratings. No one in the stadium moved. But something unexpected happened.
The Alabama fans stayed and "sabaned" their victory. Their band played.Their victory ended a perfect scheduled season. But something unexpected happened.
What possibly could be wrong? The Bama fans had suffered, sweated,cursed, paced and prayed for 56 tortorous minutes and their team finally pulled it out and won. But what they saw next was not suppose to happen...either.
The Auburn family stayed. They were suppose to flee in defeat but alas the opposite happened. We stayed in our seats and waited for our team to walk off the field. 80,000 family members escorted them off with thunderous applause and chants of "It's great to be an Auburn Tiger".The recruits stayed and watched this family of ours lift up our team who served up a whole humble pie to #2 Bama.
It reminded me of the scene in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" when the Who's in Whoville gathered after their presents and decorations were missing but lifted their voices loudly anyway to lift up their gratitude and celebrations. For us it was about thankfulness, honor, and family.For 56 minutes we were fans, but as our team walked off the field for a few minutes we were all one family. It was a great feeling and we had not even won the game...on the scoreboard.
We walked out of the stadium chanting AU cheers down the ramps. Alabama fans were quiet and shocked. Their Heisman candidate was disposed of.Their defense was embarrassed. Their haughtiness was silent.
I have not mentioned the crudeness and ugliness that I witnessed or was a part of from Alabama fans prior and during the game. Their reputation for being rude fans lived on-not pulling for their team and being good fans but being jerks to others- even to children. However after the game they were silent. Eerily quiet. One would have thought they lost the game. The lack of the cries of "Roll Tide" was noticeably absent.
But something happened. Auburn continued to make us proud, played their hearts out, made idiots out of the sports announcers who proclaimed earlier this was a waste to play, and silenced the visiting fans.
Yes, something happened. Auburn won everything but the scoreboard.This was not suppose to happen!!! Alabama was not suppose to allow this!! It was just Auburn for goodness sakes, right?? Wrong.
Not a perfect day but an AUsome day. And with already picking up some of the top recruits in the nation (#8 class in the nation), a new coaching staff that have eyes of the tiger, and an AU family ready to support them all, we only have one question- when does the 2010 season start?
Shhh, troll was not intended for you.
Btw, like the name change. Better that way.
Edit: also good to see someone realizes I'm far from a homer from the bama fan base.

Hmm never seen that one.. Doesn't look like it came from the AD but pretty terrible celebrating a moral victory nonetheless... +1 to you sir for delivering
Hubs so gumped out he probably didn't even get it
Yeah I got a promotion & you just never know who will be on a message board, be it a client/coworker or whoever. It gives a little more anonymity but my peeps still know me.
As for the edit, yeah I know you's no Barner.
My favorite method is repeatedly. Then reading the new excuses each year for why it can't possibly happen again.
