More early Miss AU Tan photos surface

The hope, obviously, is that posting photos of the Miss AU Tan pageant will lead to more posts of photos of the Miss AU Tan pageant will lead to more posts of photos of the Miss AU Tan pageant and so on and so on into sexy Auburn infinity. And so it begins: Five new photos of a pageant (possibly the first) from the very early 80s courtesy of Andy Waits, who says there would be 31 more—his girlfriend wasn’t amused—had it not been for the sticky fingers of his “damn frat brothers.”

Details like names are hazy, but Waits does remember that the young lady in the green-striped bikini “had been catching rays in a much larger suit to begin with and then tried to ‘catch up’ with a smaller one,” hence the tan lines.

Oh, and speaking of stripes, young Aubie certainly seems to be getting an eyeful. Tiger meat, indeed.

Help us keep hope alive by sending your Miss AU Tan photos to [email protected] We’re looking for a Polaroid of Spuds McKenzie.

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."
