$4 million can buy you lots of attention.
But will it buy an Iron Bowl victory? Seems like that may be the only way.
But if it doesn't... well, the road to a Bama NC goes through Auburn. TD did a pole where Bama fans expected a NC within 3 years like Saban did at LSU with no interstate competition. If he doesn't, it will be Shula Part II but twice the $$. Or maybe more.
As far as AUs fans go, we didn't do as good as we should have last year. But please don't feel sorry for us lacking in attention or recruiting. After all, we beat the #1 and #3 teams. Unlike Bama, we would have stuck behind Coach Tub even if he had lost those. We prefer to fire presidents and ADs.
DHS. And how old were you when Bama beat AU 10 times in a row? I mean the very last SEC game Bryant coached, he lost to AU and that run didn't take place afterwards.
Anyhow, most Bama fans I talk to were kicking slats out of their cradles last time Bama won 2 NCs in a row... Most have a clearer recollection of 5 straight AU losses.
Nope, not but one NC for AU. We lack name recognition outside of the SEC as our Perfect Season clearly demonstrated.
But all this aside, Bama we like your new stadium. Thanks for making us feel at home.
