This Is Why I Need Not to Visit Rival Sites When I Have Insomnia

Auburn fans want to beat Mark Richt because he is the head coach at Georgia, and for some unknown reason, Georgia fans think Auburn is their biggest rival and vice versa, despite no provocation.

Meanwhile, Nick Fairley just turned a hose on the visitors' section of Jordan-Hare Stadium to commemorate 120 years of a nearly annual rivalry. Go 'Dawgs!

I have come to the opinion that we give Georgia entirely too much crap. We’ve played Georgia more than we’ve played Ole Miss, Kentucky, or Florida, not to mention our brothers from 1992 and 2012. We have a lower winning percentage and lower average point differential against Georgia (58.46%, 4.4 delta) than any SEC team not named Missouri (33.33%, -6.67 delta), the Auburnite, or Tennessee, and Herschel was only there for 3 of those 65 games. You’ll notice that a single point separates the deltas of Tennessee, the Auburnite and Georgia, and then there is a jump of 2.46 to LSU, then another 1.82 to Arkansas, and so on. Georgia has been pretty competitive with us for a long time.

Some much-appreciated respect for Georgia from Roll 'Bama Roll. I'm pretty sure Herschel never played against Alabama, but that's a minor point. The hat tip from our fellow Auburn-hating brethren is appreciated. Go 'Dawgs!

Barrett Trotter has decided to forgo his senior season at Auburn, keep his bachelor's degree and continue pursuit on his Master's. "My four years at Auburn has been a great experience and I'm thankful for the opportunities that I've had, however, I have decided to forgo my senior season," Trotter said in a statement. "I'm truly blessed to have been a part of winning seasons and championships during my time at Auburn."

Auburn quarterback Barrett Trotter is retiring from football. He has a baccalaureate degree from Auburn. He is pursuing a master's degree at Auburn. He thinks his "four years at Auburn has been a great experience." Alabama Polytechnic Institute subject-verb agreement FTL! Go 'Dawgs!

[W]hat you don’t understand is that TKK simply exists on a plane of existence superior to you or I mere mortals. As wise as Aristotle, he….sitting astride the mighty white stallion of his own (relative) ethics…a vigilant sage, perpetually on guard…whether it requires defending the honor of his own pure, noble-intentioned group of gentlemen-scholars-athletes-minor saints (bedecked in the black and red, natch)….or whether it requires his own scathing, damning judgment, cast down from on high against lesser institutions in lesser states with lesser people constituting their lesser fanbase (emphasis on "base" says he!) Perhaps some day you shall see. Now as penance for badmouthing the work of noble, illustrious T. Kyle King (that local deity of all things black and red, and subsequently all things right in this world or possibly even the next), please go re-read his impassioned plea for Auburn to suffer the Death Penalty. For so he has wished, and so he has willed it. So, yeah. I can only imagine that smug [insert expletive of choice here] has had a mural of The School of Athens reproduced on the wall of his study, with himself in place of Plato. He’s bordering on Bond-villain levels of hubris over there…it’s just a wonder he hasn’t given himself an aneurysm from being SO damned concerned about Auburn.

Finally, someone from a rival fan base understands me, even if he does have our color scheme reversed! (Hat tip: War Eagle Atlanta.) Go 'Dawgs!

Auburn is not good at basketball, so UGA kind of did earn a bye. Though the Plaigles took the Dawgs to overtime this season, the Wargers' only victory of any note at all came against the Florida St. Seminoles. Other than that, Auburn's win column is made up of a bunch of SEC West teams and schools you've never heard of.

Happy Birthday #auburn Feb 1, 1856 East Alabama Male College was chartered. 155 years strong

Happy Birthday #auburn Feb 1, 1856 East Alabama Male College was chartered. 155 years strong

Today is the anniversary of the day what is now Auburn University was chartered. Just five days ago, the University of Georgia celebrated the 226th anniversary of its chartering, so a mere 155 years makes Auburn a newcomer to higher education in my book. (Georgia celebrated its 155th anniversary in 1940.) Still, today is the birthday of our oldest rival, so we should commemorate it in the spirit of the occasion by saying, "I hate the East Alabama Male College." Go 'Dawgs!

If we sign Isaiah Crowell, Mark Richt needs to send Mark Fox a "thank you" note. Go 'Dawgs!

Since the last National Championship Game for Auburn was 1957 (and I was born in 1965) it is fair to say that this is a once in a life-time opportunity. Without Cam Newton (or Nick Saban as our coach) it is hard to imagine this ever happening again.

An attorney and Auburn fan requests that a trial be scheduled so as not to conflict with the national championship game. (Hat tip: Scott Key.) This is, of course, a perfectly reasonable request, but could the guy have done a little research before filing his request? "[T]he last National Championship Game for Auburn was 1957"? Really? There wasn't a game with the "national championship game" designation in 1957, and, if there had been, Auburn wouldn't have been in it, because the Plainsmen were on probation and were banned from postseason play. At least he's realistic about the prospects for a repeat, though. Go 'Dawgs!

An SEC team has won the last four BCS championships, the single piece of factual information its fans have to hold over the rest of the country in their insistence on the on-field dominance of the South. Oregon's ever-changing array of flashy uniforms and spread option offense are the living antithesis of the salt-of-the-earth image the SEC cultivates for itself. Rest assured, their confidence in a fifth straight win – the first over a bunch of West Coast pretty boys – will be staggeringly high. The Ducks can either shut them up and usher in more respect for an expanded, rebranded Pac-10, or leave the rest of America to another year of gloating from the other side of the Mason-Dixon.

Dr. Saturday identifies the central issue for all of us in Bulldog Nation: does conference pride trump intra-conference contempt? For me, it doesn't. (I hate Auburn.) Which way will you be rooting, and why? Go 'Dawgs! . . . and go Ducks!
