“Auburn doesn’t have a chance” … we’ve heard it before 🤔

 

 

My first IB.....I had been to a lot of AU home games...but never been to an IB period until that fateful day. My sisters Hubs...who is a huge Turd fan as is his whole family...took me with him and all their turd friends and family. They rent a party bus and drive down there every year.

I was the only Au fan. I was roughly 15. I heard the whole way how they were going to win and all that BS....Thank god for Tre Smith!!!! What a day! They had a long ride back with me!!!! (the next time I traveled with them was 2012...ughhhh)

Man I wish this was like 2002.  If Auburn goes in and wins I don’t know how you don’t have to rethink a lot of things that have happened the past 72 hrs.

I think others have stated it before, but we shouldn’t let emotions of a bad season, a fairy tale ending, and getting up for a rivalry game override a rational, pivotal next step to determine the future of our athletics cash cow program with the likes of Texas and Oklahoma joining the conference. 

If we are fickle enough to do that, and I’m Bama/Saban, I throw the game intentionally since they don’t have anything really to play for in terms of conference/national championship to dupe Auburn into making an emotional choice.

Nah. Harsin almost / should have beat a better bammer squad last year. 

Regardless of this Saturday, AU needs a new HC.

I don’t know if I would quite say that.  Bama still can get in that playoff if the right things happen

Yup exactly my thoughts. USC and TCU still have to win two tough games each. bammer can easily leapfrog both.

Coach Fran left Bama for Texas A&M after that year.  We say coaches at Auburn don’t leave Auburn for another coaching job, Bama can’t say that.

Tre Smith 126 yards. I still remember one tide fan on one of their 2000 message boards saying that "we are making the lil white kid look like Bo Jackson."

My REC Family members to this day SWEAR CDF threw that game on purpose. I remember fans on PFRN saying we were going to lose 40-0.

It would be another example of a Saban team backing into a BCS or playoff because other teams couldn’t seal the deal.
