The tradition isn't old, but it has found a place among Auburn fans and in college football
I've never seen the dotting of the "i" but there is no way it compares to the chills as Nova flies... WDE!!
Marching bands are really cool and all that but when an event occurs that forces the other team's fans to stand with reverence, overcome with awe and amazement and covered in chills when our eagle soars over their heads, that's all it takes to know whose tradition is best. Punctuation isn't even on the radar.

Wisconsin played in the Hall of Fame Bowl in Birmingham in 1984. Before I had children my Mother and I attended all the Auburn games and the bowl games in B'ham.
Wisconsin LOST to Kentucky 20-19. When the game was over I noticed the band at the far end heading toward the WIS fans. Our tickets were in their section. We started to leave and a elderly couple said, don't go, the party is about to begin. The guys and the girls on the field would fall to the ground rolling and jumping around. Then the would grab their instruments and play that Beer tune and then all the fans would say, "When you say Wisssssconsin...You said it all". I asked the gentlemen what would happen if they had won? He said the same thing, it about participating and having a good time.
We sang that Beer tune I know forty or fifty times.
Those were the days.
Where have all the sportsmanship gone?
$$$$$ MONEY $$$$$ and Power.

I was at the Clemson game last year and witnessed this happen first hand. I have seen the eagle fly many many of times, but me and my wife were standing at our seats and in front of us was two Clemson fans. A young boy and his father. When the eagle was about to fly the father was so excited for his son to see this happen that it almost appeared to me that they were just as excited about seeing that than watching their team. Great people they were. Anyway, I ALWAYS get chillbumps everytime the eagle flies. I am so proud to call Auburn home. Waaaaaaarrrrrrrr Eagle HEY!!!!
I know this is heresy to post this, but I think Colorado's Ralphie running across the field is the best. The war eagle flying over the stadium is second. And just a note-the war eagle should be a golden eagle not a bald eagle. Never the same when the bald eagle flies as when the golden flies. JMHO.
Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
