Auburn Website Says Louisville “Garbage” & “Basketball School”

Wednesday morning on the Drew Deener show, Auburn Jay Tate @JayGTate of AuburnSports.com (who also attended UK and Transylvania) had some interesting comments about the Louisville football program.

-Tate started off his underhanded comments on the radio show at the 9:10 mark talking about Louisville selling its alottment to the Chick-fil-A Kickoff “I heard Louisville sold out their alottment which is great, but I wonder how many Auburn fans kind of snuck in there and started snagging those tickets.”

Until the end of June tickets to the Chick-fil-A Kickoff weren’t available to anyone but CAF members, and few were left to the general public. Did any Auburn fans get some through UofL? Sure, it’s probable. But it’s not a large number.

-Later Drew asks Jay about Auburn’s fans perception of Loui...

Louisville Offense vs. Auburn Defense

Bobby Petrino & Garrick McGee vs. Will Muschamp

These guys have also met before.  First in 2002 when Petrino was the Offensive Coordinator at Auburn and Muschamp was the defensive coordinator at LSU.  Auburn whipped LSU 31-7 in a rain-soaked affair in 2002, but Petrino’s offense was only able to manage 321 yards (105 passing, 216 rushing) and only attempted 11 passes with Jason Campbell on the day.  In 2008 Bobby Petrino & Garrick McGee had a tough time in Year 1 at Arkansas vs. Will Muschamp’s Defense at Texas.  Petrino said in post-game “That’s a beating”.  Arkansas was limited to just 251 yards (240 passing, 11 rushing) and scored its only touchdown late in the 4th quarter on a scoop & score off of a fumble.

This time around there will be no weather in the dome it’s Muschamp’s fir...

Auburn Traditions & Attending, Listening, Watching

ChickFilAKickoff

Tigers. War Eagle. The Plainsmen. When it comes to Auburn there are a lot of names and traditions to keep track of.

First, they are The Auburn Tigers.  Their fight song and Battle Cry is “War Eagle”.   “Aubie” is the Tiger Mascot and “Nova” is ‘War Eagle’.   Nova, and other iterations of him, take flight in pre-games at Jordan-Hare Stadium circling the stadium before landing at midfield.  The “War Eagle” story dates back to the 1892 Auburn/Georgia game when an Eagle suddenly nose-dived into the football field following Auburn’s 1st ever victory over the Bulldogs.  The fight song featuring War Eagle was written in 1954.

The War Eagle Girls & Plainsmen are charged with the duty and honor of representing Auburn University students to faculty, administrators, and the community...

Louisville & Auburn both have released their depth charts for Saturday’s Chick-fil-A Kickoff.  Some notable items for the Cards:

-Micky Crum & Keith Towbridge seem to be ahead of Cole Hikutini at TE.

-Khalil Hunter and Geron Christian are battling for a tackle spot.  Apparently Kelby Johnson & Aaron Epps are playing the same tackle position and Lukayus McNeil it appears is at guard.  Pedro Sibiea is listed at both Center and Guard.  (We believe Kiola Mahoni will start at the LG but if Lukayus does then there have been developments since the time we were allowed in practice.

-DeVante Peete #2 behind Ja’Quay Savage. Emonee Spence listed #4.

-Drew Bailey is ahead of GG Robinson
