Loveliest of the Plains—Lyric Padovani

We went Lyric Padovani this go-round for two reasons: She was the Loveliest exactly 49 years ago today (July 31, 1963). And she has to have one of the most Olympic-worthy names to ever grace an Auburn enrollment list.

Stay cool, Lyric.

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."
