Jim Fyffe and Pat Sullivan track the tigers, 1985.

Guess this was technically 1984, at least if it was taken during an actual game and not posed (hard to fake looks of concentration like that), because this is actually from the epic Auburn Football Illustrated from the 1985 Ole Miss game.  But just look at these young bloods! War Eagle!

And watch Pat Dye lick sugar off of a football here.
