A Salute to the Texas A&M Fans
If there was one bright spot Saturday night, it was the first visit to Auburn by the fans of Texas A&M. I’ve been going to Tiger games for more than 40 years and without question, the Aggie faithful are the classiest and nicest fans to ever visit our campus.
Whether you were at a tailgate party or walking around Toomer’s Corner, everyone was talking about how much they liked the people from College Station. All the fans I encountered were interested in learning about Auburn’s traditions and were eager to share their own stories.
It’s what college game day should be like every week. Let’s hope that as time goes on, others in the SEC take a lesson from the Texas A&M fans.
Despite the whipping put on us by the A&M team, my memories of our new rivals will be nothing but positive. In fact, I’m already making plans now to head to College Station, Texas for next season’s game.
And unlike Tuscaloosa or Athens, I’m actually looking forward to it.
Thanks again to all of you from Aggie Land who made the trip to Auburn. We hope to see you again in two years, only with a different outcome in the game.
