I am a second-generation Auburn man. I got to see Bo, Barkley, and Big Hurt all play while I earned two degrees in accounting from AU between 1983 and 1988.

One bright, shiny, gorgeous Autumn day in 1997, I was sitting in my home in Flowery Branch, Georgia (having moved from Florida via South Georgia) when it struck me that a significant football game was going to be played that day in a city a mere 45 minutes away, in a venue that was hallowed Continue Story…

“I’ll take care of you even if you have all that Auburn stuff on you!” said the lady, dressed in Georgia Bulldog attire, at the car tag office in my county bordering that of the University of Georgia.
