This is dated material now I know, but Thursday during the bspn's 'NFL Live' show they did a feature story about some 9th-grade teacher/motivational speaker who spoke to the NY Giants team the night before they played the Jets December 24th and had to win to stay alive for the playoffs. Well whadda ya know....the focus of his talk was about what being "ALL IN" means. They beat the Jets the next day and wouldn't lose again. You know the story. Anyway, they were hailing this guy as some kind of Tony Robbins for coming up with the phrase the Giants adopted on their championship run...blah blah blah. "Giants fans even had signs and t-shirts with the phrase".....they raved. "What a unique thing! What a brilliant guy!" Typical four-letter network crap. Never even a peep about how we started that prior to the Clemson game in '10, or heaven forbid that our head coach wrote a book entitled with the same.
Do you seriously think that we invented that phrase? No. We didn't. We got it from someone else. Does that mean we "hijacked it?" Of course not. It has been used by people long before Chiz used during the 2010 season.
I meant that we 'started'(began) using it in 2010.....not that we actually started it or invented it. All the same thanks for pointing that out for the rest of us.
I'm guessing you're not a gambler....
Auburn people feel a deep and passionate responsibility to uphold standards not written on paper, but lived from the heart.

Are there any original thoughts left to discover? Something to ponder on a cold windy snow day in Southeast TN
And they used a football, and wore blue jerseys, cleats and pads... It was like they were trying to completely rip us off. We've been using all those things for years....
