The 1974 Auburn Tigers were a good football team. They ended the season with a Gator Bowl victory over Texas and with just two losses – to Florida and Alabama.
One of the most questionable calls in Iron Bowl history explains the loss to the Tide.
Perhaps the indignity suffered by Secdrick McIntyre helps explain the loss to the Gators — the jockstrap, unlike the jerseys, did not tear away.

I ran into Secdrick McIntyre one time during a Spring Jamboree game. They no longer have those in Montgomery, anyway, I looked like that fly that had first landed on the fresh pile of cow manure, way more than I could handle by myself.
At the time I was 5’6″ and 115 ponds. He was a frieght train! I played defensive end, and he never knew I was there.
