13 Seconds and Counting

Photo by: Todd Van Emst
 
We've been waiting with great expectations,
To get faster and tighten our game!!

Just 13 seconds more with the Seminoles; 
And a National Title was ours to claim!!

That 13 seconds has kept us humble;
And kept our coaches up late in the night!

Coach Malzahn has expanded his play book;
And our Auburn Tigers are ready to fight!

We may take a few extra chances,
But we will get faster with every play!

When our speed overtakes the Hogs;
It should just make Bret Bielema's day!

Both Johnson and Marshall are poised and ready 
for this very important first conference game!!

But, Be prepared to see some changes,
While some things will remain the same!!

We look forward to coach Malzahn on the sideline
With his fist pumping Boom Boom Booms!!!

It will be "Lights Out" for the Arkansas Razorbacks!!
Our first Auburn Saturday can't  get here too soon!!!!

WARRRRRRR EAGLE!!!!!!!!

Top 10 Reasons #1: The Auburn Family

Of course I am biased, you would be too. It's just the greatest fan base in the entire country. 

 We have started a series of Top 10 reasons to be excited about Auburn football.  Previously discussed on our list, in order:
10 - Sammie Coates
 
9 - Auburn Marching Band
 
8 - Jordan-Hare Stadium
 
7 - Tailgating Experience
  6 - Auburn Arena  
  5 - Toomer's Corner
  4 - Coach Malzahn 
  3 - Flight of War Eagle

2 - Tiger Walk 
 

Often times visitors from outside our conference come to visit Jordan-Hare Stadium, and many will tell of the charm and refreshing attitude of the Auburn family. Whether it be tailgating, or during the game, most leave with a surprised outlook on just how nice they were treated.

Our Creed says a lot about the character of the Auburn Family. " I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all."

 

One of the most beautiful things ever written about Auburn football was authored by Bud Poliquin, who at the time was working for the Syracuse Post-Standard. You can read the entire post on the website of the West Georgia Auburn Club. Below is an excerpt of his eloquent post:

"In other words to compare our college football experience to that of Auburn (and a lot of other places) is to compare a skillet of beans to a plate of Chilean sea bass. And while that might sound harsh, it doesn’t make the words any less true.
Believe me on this. Please. I have descended into college football’s Grand Canyon. I have stood in its Alps. I have gazed at its ocean sunset. I have attended a game at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. And I’ve been changed forever."

All of this signifies the inescapable conclusion, that the spirit of the Auburn Family is the #1 reason to be excited about Auburn football. The Auburn Family is you!

War Eagle!

Top 10 Reasons #2: Tiger Walk


We have started a series of Top 10 reasons to be excited about Auburn football.  Previously discussed on our list, in order:
10 - Sammie Coates
9 - Auburn Marching Band
8 - Jordan-Hare Stadium
7 - Tailgating Experience
6 - Auburn Arena  
5 - Toomer's Corner
4 - Coach Malzahn
3 - Flight of War Eagle

It is not something every school does, and you'll excuse me if I say no school does it quite like Auburn. Home games always include the iconic parade. Even away games, the Auburn fans will do their best to include a Tiger Walk in the pregame ceremony for their beloved football team.

Often times there will 10,000 Auburn fans or more involved in the tradition known as "Tiger Walk."

 The biggest crowds gather for our biggest rivals. Last season prior to the Iron Bowl, I witnessed the largest gathering of Auburn fans outside of Jordan-Hare Stadium. A virtual sea of Orange and Blue cheering our men on to vic'try. We all know how that turned out.

The sights and sounds of the Auburn Marching Band, along with the best Cheerleaders in the country, make this one of the best reasons to be excited about Auburn football.

Top 10 Reason #3: War Eagle!

It's the most majestic of beginnings in all of American football. Nothing anyone can do will compare.

We are talking about the flight of the Auburn Eagle before the start of each home football game. If you have never seen the pregame flight of these beautiful creatures in this atmosphere, be sure to put it on your bucket list of things to do. You will not be disappointed. 

As the winged predator circles the field, looking for its prey, the crowd is going berserk in a unified yell of "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaar" (WAR) and as the Eagle makes its landing the crowd yells "Eagle, Hey!"

 

This is why the flight of the War Eagle, is #3 on our Top 10 reasons to be excited about Auburn football.
