The Daily Believer is your daily-ish 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.

*** Katharine Phillips describes Auburn’s December 7, 1941 for Ken Burn’s ‘The War’:
“I was a sophomore at Auburn when Pearl Harbor was attacked. I came home from church, went to the dormitory and heard all this screaming and crying and I went down the hall and I said, ‘What’s the matter? What’s wrong?’ They said, ‘Turn the radio on.’ So we turned our radio on and of course, he said, ‘The Japs have attacked Pearl Harbor.’ … But we comforted each other and the girls all cried and wept because they had boyfriends or relatives that were already in the armed forces. And we realized immediately that this would be war.”
Watch her and hear her beautiful accent here.

*** The University of My Eyeballs: A picture of what had to be Bama’s Terrence “Top Floor” Cody was used during a bit in this week’s Saturday Night Live in which “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers credited a new study on the obesity of college offensive linemen to “the University of My Eyeballs.”
