NEW FLORIDA UNIS FOR BAMA GAME (JORTS INCLUDED)

You'd think by now that teams would have learned their lesson about rolling out special uniforms to play Bama (think UGA blackout, PSU whiteout... the list goes on and on).  It recently came to our attention that the Gators will be wearing new uniforms for the showdown on the swamp on Saturday evening.

FOOTAGE OF ESPN's DOCUMENTARY ON THE IRON BOWL:

With two Heismans, two championships and one crazed fan, this one hour film will tell the story of the rivalry between Auburn and Alabama. Watch "Roll Tide/War Eagle" Tuesday November 8th 8pm EST on ESPN

HOMOEROTIC BAMMERS:

Speaking of homoeroticism, as co-blogger RammerJammer did here, this is the first and last time that I ever want to see any guy anyone dipping "Namath Nuggets" in some strange goo and putting the whole damn thing in their mouth.  Enjoy a video full of wrong after the break:

NUMBERS DON'T LIE

So we were listening to the Barn-biased radio this morning, and we heard the usual Barner argument: "Barn owns Bama because we have the best 3rd down conversion rate in the 4th quarter in games falling on odd years for the past 12 seasons.... boo ya!"  As a Bama fan, we don't understand the logic behind choosing only certain facts that work to our advantage to show we're superior to another team.  But who said Barners' have logic... after all, they're Barners.  So we decided to use hard facts to compare Bama and the Barn, and the facts, our friend, do not lie:

THE PERFECT STOCKING STUFFER FOR YOUR AUBURN FRIENDS:

How fitting that on the day Harvey Updyke called the Finebaum show to apologize effect a well orchestrated stunt hatched by his lawyers, a loyal friend of The Tide and Tiger let us know about a Toomers related gift, which will be perfect for the stockings of your Auburn friends this holiday season.  Introducing the Toomers Roll Scarf:

THE TIDE AND TIGER SALUTES A COMMERCIAL JINGLE:

As I was getting ready for work this morning, this memorabilia memorable commercial came on the television: 


I had forgotten this humorous gem until riminded reminded this morning.  As the kids would say, that song is so GMC (which, I'm told, apparently means "genuinely motivational and cool").  I like it much betar better than the other songs featured in that commercial series, even though they suit me fine too.  The jingle brought a smile to my face.

On a serious note, how do kids these days afford yukons cars?

WILL MUSCHAMP HATES NICK SABAN:

This video is priceless.  The reporter's Star Wars question is quite possibly the most stupid question of the year.  Muschamp's initial reaction is stupendous in and of itself, but his reaction at the end of the video to the question about what he learned from Nick Saban demonstrates some not so thinly veiled hatred for little Nicky.

(Advertisment Precedes the Video - Stick with it)

Don't believe that Muschamp hates Saban?  Read this article about Little Nicky reprimanding Muschamp's mom (click here for article), and then watch the video again.

If you are like me and don't live in your mom's basement, you likely do not know the meaning of "padawan."  According to Wookieepedia, a "Padawan" is a Jedi Apprentice or a "force-sensitive adolescent who had begun one-on-one instruction with a Jedi Knigh or Master outside of the Jedi academy."  http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Padawan

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR YOUR BAMA BOY:

The Tide and Tide has already featured A.J. McCarron's awesome, work of art, ridiculous "Bama Boy" tattoo (click here).  Fortunately for all the necks out there, your stocking will be full this Christmas with your very own "Bama Boy" t-shirt, minus the pain and suffering from the needle and the inevitable hangover caused by the cheap tequila you would drink in order to prep yourself for becoming a walking piece of art trailer trash.  I'm not sure exactly where you can buy this gem, but I suspect it will be front and center at your local Wal-Neck, K-Neck and Neck Pride stores.

We go back in time for this week's Barner of the week:


It cost the Barn $200,000 to buy their third heisman trophy winner.  We think this week's Barner of the week may have to double-down on that to finally lose his v-card.

Under Armour has released pictures of the new uniforms that the South Carolina Gamecocks will wear against Auburn on October 1.  The uniforms are intended to honor our nation’s "Wounded Warriors."  Among other changes, the normal block C on SC's helmets will have a camouflage print instead of black, and "Believe in Heroes" will adorn the back of their pants.

While the bama fans are applauding Ted Roof's and the Auburn defense's latest efforts, I want to applaud Mike Dyer.  Dyer is quietly building a fantastic season, as evidenced by the following numbers:

11th in the NCAA in total rushing yards with 358

CHIZIK'S ALBATROSS:

Last Friday, The Tide and Tiger pointed out to its readers that Gene Chizik's Auburn teams develop a bit of an Albatross around their proverbial neck whenever they get a 14 point lead {click to read}.  Sometimes the Tigers win after building a 14 point lead, but they have an unbelievably bad record of blowing 14 point leads.  Chizik's Tigers have lost four games after leading by 14 or more points.  Three other times they have squandered 14 points leads but managed to win the games anyway.  If you do the math, that's more than 20% of games during Chizik's reign in which Auburn hasn't been able to handle a 14 point lead.  Saturday's game against Clemson confirmed the Albatross, because the Tigers blew not one, but two, 14 point leads.  I'm sad to say, be wary Auburn fans.

EPIC FAIL VIDEOS OF THE HILL - THE MOST EFFEMINATE 25 SECONDS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Earlier this week, The Tide and Tiger brought you "All You Need to Know About Clemson Football", in which we showcased Clemson's tradition of running down THE HILL (duh duh dum!!) before games.  If that video didn't make you lose all respect for "Auburn with a Lake", a loyal Tide and Tiger reader alerted us to these video gems, which beg a few questions: why are the players jumping like someone is poking them in the rear; is Barishnakov Clemson's trainer; why subject your team to a dangerous pre-game tradition; why don't more people faceplant like they do in these clips?

GOT 14? BE WARY AUBURN FANS!


No, this isn't a post about the dyslexic mathematics bammers hope to continue employing in counting their mythical national championships after this season.  Instead, this post is about about a bizarre trend that Auburn has developed under Chizik's reign.  I was reminded of it when Auburn went up 14-0 against Mississippi State last weekend....

AUBURN EXCELS ON THE PLAYING FIELD AND THE MUSICAL STAGE!

Last week, The Tide and Tiger featured a former Auburn basketball player's hip hop talents with iE's "Orange Navy Anthem".  Now, thanks to CBS 42 in Birmingham, we get more evidence of the musical talents of Auburn athletes.  Check out this video featuring the musicianship of Barrett Trotter and Dee Ford.  And oh by the way, the voice that comes out of Dee is not what I expected from a ferocious defensive end.  In fact, it calls for the Tide and Tiger to bestow a second nickname on an Auburn player - Dee "Sweetness" Ford.

YOU SPIN ME RIGHT ROUND BABY RIGHT ROUND

Jon Solomon has an interesting article out this morning concerning the NCAA's non-existent investigation that is being conducted as we speak.  We give Jay Jacobs credit; he can spin a story like a DJ spins a record.  We love his quote that reviewing the Barn's institutional control is normal procedure, as if there's nothing to worry about.  That's like saying the police serving a search warrant to search a robbery suspect's house is no big deal because it's standard procedure.  Or, we're just putting this convicted felon in jail because it's standard procedure.  The point he's trying to cover up is that the Barn is in fact under investigation.

We can't wait to hear our Barner friends continue to deny that there is a current, ongoing investigation into their beleaguered beloved program.  Cue the NTY Foundation's boycott of the week.  We're not sure Solomon's career will be able to take the dozens of letters from crazed Barners calling for his head.  But if you think about it, shouldn't the NTY boycott Jacobs? After all, he's the one that admitted the NCAA investigation.  This should be a fun story to watch.

As I have steadily maintained, bammers are a "jort wearing, mullet sporting, non-attending group of fans."  As partial proof of my theory generally accepted scientific fact, I offer up further proof of this guy, who sports perhaps the greatest example of the "Permullet" ever seen in public - that is, a mullet, which has been dignified with a perm.

THE TIDE AND TIGER PRESENTS: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CLEMSON FOOTBALL.


Other than the facts that Auburn has beaten Clemson 14 times in a row and Walter Merritt Riggs, the "Father of Clemson Football," was an Auburn man, here's all you need to know about Clemson football....

Clemson has a highly publicized tradition during its football team's entrance to Memorial Stadium, which Clemson, with a straight face, describes as "The Most Exciting 25 Seconds in College Football."  After the players enter the east side of the stadium, where THE HILL (duh duh dum!!) is located, they gather at the top of THE HILL (duh duh dum!!) and stand around some rock until a cannon sounds, at which time the band begins to play the fear-inspiring song Tiger Rags (whoo who!!), and the players run down THE HILL (duh duh dum!!).  The word "exciting" simply does not do the tradition justice, I tell you.

VOTE WHETHER URBAN MEYER SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN THE BOOTH FOR ESPN'S BROADCAST OF THE AUBURN CLEMSON GAME?

Birmingham News columnist and noted Alabama fan Kevin Scarbinsky published a column today in which he criticizes ESPN for assigning Urban Meyer to the television booth for this weekend's game between Auburn and Clemson. Scrarbinsky, who for once appears to be on the Auburn bandwagon, eloquently and convincingly describes the obvious conflict of interest Meyer has with Auburn football, which Scarbinsky believes should preclude Meyer from calling the game. Do you agree with Scarbinsky? Cast your vote in the upper corner of the right sidebar on the Home page of The Tide and Tiger. Voting ends Friday.

Not a single shred of credible evidence exists that Toomer's was rolled at any point around Bryant's death. Accordingly, The Tide and Tiger hereby enters a decree that no further discussion of this urban legend shall be allowed.  Violators will be subjected to this....

Not to be outdone, the bammers have come back with their own hip hop anthem, but it just doesn't seem to have the cred that iE's anthem has. You be the judge:

One of two eagle statues marking the entrance to Auburn's campus under the Toomer's Oaks has been damaged.  The beak has been broken off, and it was found nearby.  According to this article in the Opelika News, authorities have no information about how the statue was damaged.  We can only hope it wasn't you know who.

THE TIDE AND TIGER PRESENTS THE BAMMER OF THE WEEK (Jort Edition):

In a prior post, I stated that bammers are "a jort wearing, mullet sporting, non-attending group of fans."   As partial proof of my theory generally accepted scientific fact, I offer up a double shot of these guys, affectionately known as The Jortfers (short for jort wearing golfers).

The Tide and Tiger

My oh my - what a duo!  Bonus points for the lack of golfing shoes, the Saban style hat on the front Jortfer, and, oh my goodness, is that an ivy hat on the rear Jortfer? 

Who knew jorts came in above and below knee length?  And oh by the way, jorts are never appropriate, but pleated jorts?  C'mon!

THE TIDE AND TIGER IS GLAD THAT AUBURN FANS DIDN'T GET BLUE BALLS:

Nikco Sports is marketing a full-sized Auburn football commemorating the Tiger's recent successes.  The Tide and Tiger isn't sure about the gold color, but we won't gripe, because Nikco says a portion of the proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Georgia and Alabama. The balls recognize AU's 2010 and 1957 national titles and Cam Newton's season. The balls also have a panoramic view of Jordan-Hare Stadium. Nikco will produce 2,011 of the balls, and each will cost $99. Visit Nicko Sport's Website here for more information.
