The Thoughts and Prayers of Bulldog Nation Are with the Auburn Family

The time has come to begin getting geared up for the renewal of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers, but, as I have noted before, there are times when even athletic rivalries as heated and longstanding as this one must be set aside, and this is one of those times.

Last Thursday, Evelyn Walker Jordan passed away in Auburn at the age of 98. Mrs. Jordan, who spent her formative years in the Peach State as a native of Augusta and a resident of Macon, was the widow of Ralph "Shug" Jordan, the longtime head football coach of the Plainsmen who spent five years in Athens as an assistant on Wally Butts’s coaching staff.

Mrs. Jordan’s funeral is set for tomorrow at Auburn’s Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. The family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to the Auburn University Foundation and designated for the benefit of the James Ralph and Evelyn W. Jordan Scholarship Fund.

Our condolences go out to the Jordan family, and to the Auburn family, on their loss.
