The Daily Believer: 11.13.09

The Daily Believer is your daily dose of whAUtever, a dose that grows by the second, minute, hour, who knows. Maybe there’s something going on tonight at the Gnu’s Room. Maybe there’s a volleyball game. Maybe there’s some update to The War Eagle Reader you need to know about. Maybe last night’s episode of House referenced Bo. Maybe Pat Dye’s Pants have no reserve on eBay. In other words, we’re live-blogging Auburn – town, gown, idea – and we need your help. Are you putting on an event? A show? Let us know. Know about one? Let us know. Spot Chizik at Byrons? Let us know. Did you see that episode of House? Let us know.

Imagine… Reed. Tyrik. Dyer. Caudle. Smith. Fannin. Adams. T-Zach. Blake. Benton. Lutz. Burns. Stallworth. Squirrel Catcher. Maybe Seastrunk. Maybe Lattimore. Almost entire O-line.

CSJ just got a special tingle. I did, too.

A Wall Street Journal feature focusing on Auburn and the evolution of southern game day courtship is currently up on the front page of paper’s Web site.

According to several sophomore members of Auburn’s Sigma Nu chapter, the best quality to look for in a date is that she makes a good “babysitter” (read: she will take care of you if you get too drunk). Others say the best dates won’t mind doubling as bourbon-transportation vehicles. (Taping a flask to a date’s leg is, by many accounts, another age-old Southern football tradition.)

It comes across a bit Teen Vogue at times, and not just because of the content, but I dig that it barely mentions Bama and, for LSU, focuses entirely on the corn-dog meme.

*** At least one person noticed (someone with the last name of Dyle!): Michael Dyer committed to Auburn on Pat Dye’s birthday (happy belated – word of the week! – coach). Dyer, like Dye during his first press conference as Auburn’s coach, also misnomerized Auburn as “the University of Auburn” during his first press conference as an official Auburn verbal. Let’s hope he stays off Lake Martin, at least for a little while. — [JDH – 9:02 a.m.]

*** I was looking for someone to follow for a true taste of what’s about to go down in Athens this weekend. I recommend keeping your eyes on AU_Goldberg, who has been to every game this season.
