"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Jacobs said the video board above the south end zone will measure roughly 200-feet wide and 55- to 57-feet tall, which would surpass Texas A&M's recently-installed board that measures 7,661 square feet. Exact dimensions for Auburn's video board were not included in documents provided to Auburn's trustees.
Following 13-17 loss to Vanderbilt and 1-6 start, Auburn OC Scot Loeffler is under fire by Auburn fans for his play calling. Loeffler's post game interview and Auburn fan comments here.
Auburn has lost it's starting QB (5-star So. Kiehl Frazier) to injury, and the replacements Jr Clint Moseley and Fr. Jonathan Wallace are both playing very poorly. Loeffler was hired by Chizik to install a pro-style, power run offense, scrapping the spread option shotgun offense of recent years.
Here was an interesting media interview with Loeffler earlier in the Auburn preseason - comparing Tim Tebow and Tom Brady - an usual question by the media, but anyway.

99. Deep South's Oldest Rivalry (Auburn/Georgia)
Now I don't live in Georgia nor Alabama (tell us a what you think if you are), but from what I have read, it seems like the Georgia- Auburn rivalry is similar to the Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry-- it's more of a friendly, yet very competitive, rivalry. Vince Dooley played and coached at Auburn and later coached and became the A.D. at Georgia. Will Muschamp played at Georgia and was a defensive coordinator at Auburn. Pat Dye was an All-American at Georgia and coached at Auburn. The defensive line coach at Georgia played at Auburn. Two current Auburn coaches, Brian Van Gorder and Willie Hernandez, were both the defensive coordinators at Georgia. Neil Callaway was an offensive line coach at Auburn before becoming the offensive coordinator at Georgia. These are just a few of the many more examples!
I think this is what you would call a friendly rivalry. Both places are good schools, good places. Both of them have good people. That's what makes it special.
— Neil Callaway, Georgia offensive coordinator, 2000-2006
This quote pretty much sums it up!"
Georgia holds the edge in this rivalry 53-52-8. Only one game separates the two! This rivalry game has been played almost every since 1892. It has gone back and forth throughout the years. Both teams have many great players-- Georgia: Herschel Walker, Frank Sinkwich, David Pollack. Auburn: Bo Jackson, Cam Newton, Nick Fairley to name a few. From my understanding (once again, I can't speak for them) it seems like the two teams respect each other like Michigan and Notre Dame but compete with each other like Michigan and Ohio State. This is one of the oldest rivalries and clearly the closest with only one game separating the two teams. Another interesting similarity is that they both have the same fight songs (Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!). These two schools are almost identical.
Here are a few links to some big Georgia-Auburn games:
As you can see here, very competitive!
See what the topic is tomorrow as we approach the 98th day away from kickoff!
Sorry if this has been posted already, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I read this and was left dumbfounded. How can a guy be facing 40 years in federal-pound me in the ass-prison for poisoning some trees. I can understand some punishment but I don't think I would ever wish 40 years on someone just for killing some trees. Sure, if an OSU fan came into the Big House and completely poisoned all the grass, I'd be upset, but I wouldn't be calling for the head on a plank.
Secondly, how do they select jurors in this case? Does the prosecution come right out and ask where potential juror's football allegiances lie?
Just wondering what you all thought. I was shocked at hearing this. Also, it's a pretty good read for those who have not read it yet.
Looking for more reasons to not like Auburn this year? Look no further. This dude should be booted for the year. Link below. Auburn homers are trying to justify this guy's performance. Truly sickening.
look how he gained admission at AU:
