I'm getting sick of the so-called Auburn fans on here criticizing any appeal to the Auburn Creed in this whole mess. I am in no way arguing that we should retain Chizik and Jacobs. Nor am I necessarily saying that we should avoid hiring Petrino. But if you are going to make a case for Petrino, at least try to show that he is right for Auburn on more than one level. Try to make a case that he can, from this point forward, live up to (imperfectly, to be sure, as with all of us) the ideals penned by the father of Auburn football, Dr. George Petrie. I'm not saying that such a case can't be made. But if you are going to bash the Creed itself, then find another team and university to support. There's one up highway 82 that might operate more to your liking, if your definition of "tradition" is reducible to "winning championships." For most Auburn fans, Auburn means more than (but not less than) winning.
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Having worked for Johnson & Johnson (J&J Credo) and been a Rotarian (4-way test) for many years, I feel strongly about the benefits of having a written document to give direction.
Kids, (a) Changing speeds is more important than a curve ball (b) you play defense with your feet & (c) Wayne Hancock is the tits.
The problem is not the creed it is you have people hide behind it and use it only when it works for them.
Stay thirsty my friends......
Auburn '99, Beta Zeta of Theta Xi
Perfectly stated...the Creed is like the Bible...it's picked and chosen when it fits. Ignored when AU has slimeballs that actually work out for us and praised when hypotheticals are raised that conflict with the hypercritical-thinking of most human beings.
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
F the creed. Win some football games. You people act like This is some Sunbelt team.
Troll....A-UA fan. Just like a Bammer no class.
..........BEAT BAMA .................BEAT BAMA..................BEAT BAMA
Alabama delenda est.
