Great way to kick this board off
Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
Woo! I like it!
I was at Coach Dye's initial press conference as Auburn head coach. He was asked by someone (does anybody remember who it was? - Was it you Phillip?) "How long will it take you to beat Alabama?" COACH DYE'S RESPONSE - "60 minutes!"

Great way to kick this board off...I will never forget that game as long as I live. I had blue snot for two weeks after that game from the paper shakers.

That picture is from the 1959 Auburn-Georgia game in Athens, the first time in years for the game to leave Columbus.
The next year, 1960, the game would be played in Auburn, and has been home-and-home for 50 years now.
The two players shown not only had the shortest names (6 letters) on their teams, they also played key roles in deciding the 1959 and 1960 games. In 1959, with Auburn leading 13-7 late in the game, Pat Dye recovered an Auburn fumble. That led directly to a Fran Tarkenton TD pass which won the game and the SEC title for Georgia.
In the 1960 game at Auburn, there were no TDs. UGA kicked two FGs, but Ed Dyas kicked three for the Auburn win, 9-6.
Nice pics jadennis. I still have an images of Bo Jackson running around burned into my memory. Sorry no download.
