Not that we need any more evidence that UAT is classless but, my daughter is in law school at UM, one of her bammer classmates wore a button during the BCSNCG that said "AUBURN AIN'T SH\T".

"Tiger meat" is LSU's thing

When I was in school we yelled "Tiger Meat" when the first visiting player waled on the field for warmups, the start of the game, at half time when they left the field, when they came back on the field after half time, and at the end of the game. That was in the late 1960's.
I see more bad manners today and less respect than in our time frame. I yelled "Tiger Meat" at Richmond Flowers a star Tennessee player at Legion Field and gave him a standing ovation when he was injured during the game.
Be civil and positive with you calls. That shows class. I do not care how the other fellow acts. I am responsible for my own actions and those of my fellow Auburn Fans.
Just do us proud and not stoop to the oppositions lower levels.
If this makes me old fashion then so be it.
I wholeheartedly agree with AUTiger923 and others. Auburn can be the class of the SEC every year as well as compete hard to be its champion. I go to every home game and have been since the seventies. The only time i "boo" is when an official makes a really bad call. I don't boo the other team, coaches or fans. I stand and yell "War Eagle at every kickoff no matter the situation, whether we're winning or losing. I cheer for my team enthusiastically throughout the game. I place my hat over my heart and sing "America the Beautiful" and "The Star Spangled Banner" before every game. I try to set a good example for the people around me.
This is a sport we watch and support. We should all expect good sportsmanship from ourselves, our team and coaches. What other teams or fans from other schools choose to do will never have an influence on me. When I'm wearing my AU colors I represent AU to anyone who sees me and my behavior will be interpreted to be AU behavior by our rivals.
I'll tell you two things:
1) My youngest daughter traveled to Baton Rouge along with some sorority sisters and other friends for the AU-LSU game when she was a sophomore. After the game she called me in tears because, in her words, "during the game I got up to visit the restroom and some man that looked like you (in other words, a middle-aged white professional) grabbed my arm, wouldn't let go and blocked me from getting by him. After a few scary moments he finally let me go. And then he spit on me!" I'm proud to say that the odds of that happening at an AU home games are almost nil. I'm proud of all the good press AU has received over the years extolling our friendliness and gracious hospitality
2) I think that little stinky "cheer" AL rolls out only when they are absolutely sure they've got the game won has somewhat backfired on them. I think once a team or coaching staff has experienced it once they will work all the harder to make sure they never have to hear it again, making them a tougher and more dangerous foe. Can I prove it? No, but I haven't heard it that often and I've been to a lot of AU-UA games (only heard it twice in the last 10 years - in '01 and '09 and in '09 we kinda drowned them out with "It's Great To Be An Auburn Tiger!" All JMHO.
And yes, we used to yell Tiger Meat (I think LSU still yells "tiger bait")
"Brick by brick, my citizens. Brick by brick"
