All during this incredible year, the Auburn Tigers have been compared to Cinderella. Many have suggested that some sort of “football” fairy godmother was responsible for our wins over Georgia and Alabama rather than our players’ hard work, which is the real fairy tale. However, if we did want to continue the analogy, Cinderella wasn’t crowned Queen at the ball. When the clock struck midnight, she left in tears, and she left her glass slipper behind for the prince to find and remember her by.
In the same way, these Auburn Tigers had the clock strike midnight last night. But, we left a reminder behind as well. The college football world can’t forget us now. And, we will be back very soon, to be crowned national champions, and there won’t be any mention of luck or miracles. Oh yes, we’re coming! And, it’s always great to be an Auburn Tiger!
