JELL-O wrestling? War Effing Eagle

West Virginia’s administration recently asked West Virginia students to refrain from wearing T-shirts bearing the words “West [EFFING] Virginia,” an unofficially official slogan preferred by many young Mountaineers fans.

And hey, that’s more than enough to serve as a timely excuse to post this delightful photo of the Harper Street Honeys and friends from 2003.

For while Auburn’s famous battle cry, too, has long been stuffed with an expletive for added emphasis, for some Auburn supporters—most recently Takeo Spikes—”Damn” just isn’t enough. And in the early 80s, those people had a T-shirt all their own, one passed on to future generations via thrift stores and direct parent-child hand-me-downs, one perfect for JELL-O wrestling.

Almost forgot: Photo by Auburn legend John Counts.

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."
