Auburn Turns Attention To Bayou Trash

By on September 2nd, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Auburn Turns Attention To Bayou Trash

For those of you who live on the Plains, it’s time to install that alarm system, put on the extra locks and watch your children closer, the Cajuns are heading your way. You’ll know them when you see them. Tell me this is not your typical LSU fan or alum: He’s about 40 years-old, hasn’t shaved in at least three days, is usually drunk by 10:00 a.m. and is wearing a white LSU football jersey. He has the smell of a corn dog.

His wife or common law, as they call it in the parishes, is also 40ish, has on a matching LSU jersey (same number as her fellow), has long bleached blond hair and smokes Marlboro reds. Did I hit it on the money?

By around lunch time, they’ll start into their chants. Nobody will be able to understand them because they are so drunk (Cajuns have never been able to hold their liquor) and they’ll be looking for a fight, even though the majority of them are 40 pounds overweight and couldn’t run to their mailboxes.

This is what Auburn fans have to look forward to this Saturday. And you know what? I can’t wait.This is what college football is all about. LSU has become Auburn’s most important rival. If it still doesn’t feel like college football season yet, wait until Saturday in Auburn. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.

Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville certainly has it on his mind. When asked how quickly he turned his attention to LSU on Saturday, he said it started after Auburn went ahead of Mississippi State 14-0

. That’s awesome. Don’t tell me this game isn’t huge.

I hope you enjoy the week. Talk it up everywhere. Run your mouth. Have fun. Wear your new $100 Under Armour shirts every day this week. This is what we live for. See you Saturday!
