Here’s Phenix City’s Jesse “War Eagle” Fincher on Jan. 4, 1984, folksily expressing the feelings of Auburn fans everywhere toward the national media… except, amazingly, the New York Times who had Auburn (11-1-0) at No. 1 after the Tigers beat Michigan 9-7 in the Sugar Bowl. AP and UPI had us at No. 3. Kiss our grits. Kiss his grits.
