A rare, extended Auburn team photo Pat Dye commissioned leading up to the 1984 Sugar Bowl

At least that’s what we’re told this is, and you know, what else could it be? We just really like it. There’s something about it. Maybe because it’s not just football players: Athletic Department staff, Sewell Hall staff, one big happy extended family, preppin’ to take it to the Wolverines (and win a national championship). Apparently Dye just told everyone to gather on the practice field one day, look toward the Lord, and say “cheese.”


There’s Coach, and isn’t that a young Melvin Owens, stalwart coach escort, sandwiched between Coach and Greg Carr? And there’s Del Greco… and Housel… and tons of the guys. Click to enlarge and tell us who you can find (especially if you can find Bo… ‘course, he never really practiced. Maybe he’s taking the photo), then tag the folks below. (Maybe listen to this while you do. It will help.)
