Great photos from Auburn’s 1972 Wreck Tech Parade

Great photos from Auburn’s 1972 Wreck Tech Parade

Freshmen in pajamas technically reenacting the deliberate possible crashing of a passenger train—what wasn’t to love?! What’s not to miss?! Yes, sadly, save for a brief appearance in the mid-2000s, the cherished Wreck Tech parade disappeared from Auburn’s streets and yearbooks when Auburn and Georgia Tech discontinued their annual rivalry in the late 80s. Let […]

Robenson Therezie’s Auburn tattoo

Robenson Therezie’s Auburn tattoo

Adding to the visual delights at Auburn’s Wednesday’s practice was Robenson Therezie’s (new?) Auburn tattoo: an eagle coming on the clouds of the late 70s, beneath a “War Eagle,” and through not just an “A” but, as Riley notes, the interlocking an “AU.” It’s a nifty twist on a classic design and worthy of praise.

Smithsonian-featured artist Matt Moulthrop hopes to tell the Toomer’s Oaks story with bowl made from trunk section

“One of the aspects that I love about the work that I do is being able to extend the life of a tree,” Matt Moulthrop told PBS in a 2011 documentary. He should really love his next big gig. Yep, when The War Eagle Reader reported last week that Auburn University was planning to commission […]

Bo and his biggest fan in Japan

Bo and his biggest fan in Japan

We knew about Bo Jackson’s record breaking, cover making performance in the 1986 Japan Bowl, and we have some great photos from it. Just not as great as this one from SI’s 50th Bo birthday celebrating gallery. No wonder Nissan’s a proud sponsor of the Heisman Trophy. Related: Bo Jackson on “Sesame Street.” … Keep […]

Pat Dye signs neckties sent by angry Syracuse fans

Pat Dye signs neckties sent by angry Syracuse fans

I’d heard about it—Syracuse fans indignant over Pat Dye’s understandable (and unrepentant) decision to go for a tie (OR WAS IT?!) in the 1988 Sugar Bowl mailed him more than 2,000 old ties to shame him or something, many collected from Syracuse stores offering half-off discounts on new ties for folks who brought in an old […]

War Eagle Relics goes Old School

You know the drill. Picture of Auburn Football Team (early 1900′s) “My Grandmother (who is 95 and still going strong) found this picture in an old trunk that belonged to her mother about 17 years ago. This is a picture of one of the early 1900′s Auburn football teams. I have no idea which year […]

War Eagle Relics says Dameyune For Hesiman!

Several weeks (months?) ago I tweeted out a few pictures of old Auburn T-shirts that I’ve been holding onto since my school days during the Terry Bowden era.  A ‘95 Camp War Eagle shirt that is no longer suitable to wear in public.  A ‘97 Dameyune Craig Heisman campaign shirt that, to my knowledge, was […]

Changing of the Guard: Shug’s symbolic toss to Barfield

A rare photo from the 1976 A-Day Program, which was mostly a Shug is gone, long stay the Shug type retrospective. Most Auburn fans would rule this an incomplete pass. But we’ve got a losers-are-more-interesting sort 0f  soft spot for ol’ Doug Barfield that we plan to massage even more in the coming months. I’m […]
