Punt, Bama, Punt: Auburn scenery, Dec. 2, 1972 [Buck Fama! Gallery]

Exactly one year ago today, we posted two galleries: one with photos taken around Auburn the day before the 1972 Iron Bowl, the other with photos taken in Birmingham at the game.

Today we present the immediate aftermath of the game as seen in Auburn, gallery the first… with photos once again courtesy Larry Parker, and once again incredible…

… for they give all indication that the stories you hear… folks dancing in the street, cars legally grafiti’d with “Bama Ain’t S%@#”, Greyhounds full of through-traffic yankees marooned by revelers and rocked by “War Eagles”, “17-16″s everywhere (including the hulls of Casablanca steamships), teens with “Buck Fama” scrawled on their corduroys… are all true.

Buck Fama. War Damn Eagle.

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
