Like Diggs, I grew up in the DC area (my high school football team got destroyed on an annual basis by Diggs' school). UVA/VT, Army/Navy, Maryland/WVU, etc. are the college football rivalries that get people excited up there. Growing up, these games are what framed my understanding of college football.
Then, my senior year in high school, I was lucky enough to see my first live Auburn football game - the 1997 Iron Bowl. Auburn won the game 18-17 on a last second field goal, and my experience that weekend changed me for the rest of my life. I made the decision to join the Auburn family and never looked back. There are no other rivalries or games in all of sports that can compare to the Iron Bowl. NONE.
With that said though, even if Diggs doesn't come into town this weekend, he may still end up at Auburn. Who knows. Recruits like him have a very difficult decision to make, and have to rely on the information they have and the feeling they get when they visit. Parents, coaches, friends, fans - everyone claims to be an expert and claims to know what the "best decision" is. Unfortunately, these people don't always consider what is best for the recruit and have a very personal agenda (i.e. Peaches & Brent Calloway). I'm not suggesting that anyone on this board has an agenda, but just that Stephon Diggs needs to do what he thinks is best for Stephon Diggs. I hope he makes the decision to visit the plains, has the best weekend of his life, commits to Auburn, and helps us win four more Iron Bowls. But he has to make that choice for himself.
