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!
