VIDEO: Auburn loyalties of new Medal of Honor recipient Bennie G. Adkins discussed by Obama, Fox News

Another day, another Auburn fan receiving the Medal of Honor. In March, it was Auburn shirt-wearing Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, USMC, who in 2010 put himself between a fellow Marine and a Taliban hand grenade. On Monday it was Army Command Sgt. Maj. Bennie G. Adkins, a former Green Beret who before graduating from Troy […]

Auburn’s Nick Marshall pops up in ‘Colbert Report’ bit on SEC Network-receiving space station

Auburn’s Nick Marshall pops up in ‘Colbert Report’ bit on SEC Network-receiving space station

This one’s probably pretty easy. Stephen Colbert’s doing this thing on astronaut Barry Wilmore requesting that NASA convert the International Space Station into what Colbert called an SEC Network-receiving “orbital bro pit”, and it really doesn’t matter whether the graphics producer guy knows anything about football or not. Because when it comes to “what image […]

Joe Scarborough on Robert Gibbs’ return to ‘Morning Joe’: ‘Auburn wins a game and he comes on’

Joe Scarborough on Robert Gibbs’ return to ‘Morning Joe’: ‘Auburn wins a game and he comes on’

The last time former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, an Auburn native, appeared on Morning Joe, Bama fan host Joe Scarborough called him “poor white trash” because he was wearing an Auburn shirt (because that’s just what he does). Co-host Mika Brzezinski joked (?) that Gibbs “looked like a disturbed person that may touch […]

Auburn fans (and at least one AU grad) star in Birmingham-based Bravo reality show ‘Jersey Belle’

I lived in Mountain Brook for a few years as a kid and I was not the only Auburn fan. I just wasn’t. Everyone talks about Birmingham and Bama, and sure, Bammerham, I get it. But I swear it was probably half and half, at least in my neck of the woods, at least once […]

Photo of Auburn fans smoking with Bama fans before 2013 Iron Bowl featured in September issue of ‘Cigar Aficionado’

The pop cultural power of the Iron Bowl knows no bounds. Morning shows. Award shows. End Of The Year What Does It All Mean shows. And now Cigar Aficionado. Because we’re told that if somehow your photo is one of the few selected for publication in their fan submitted stogie selfie section out of the […]

Priscilla in Alabama tells QVC ‘War Eagle’

You know how sometimes you’re like, “wow, The War Eagle Reader hasn’t had one of those Auburn-shirt-in-a-movie posts or a TODAY Show somethin’or’other with a ‘War Eagle’ in a while” and it just bothers you? Well, some people just take matters into their own hands (mobile carrier call charges may apply). In June, a caller […]

Alabama fan Joe Scarborough cracks joke about Auburn paying players on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ because he’s still mad about the Iron Bowl

Alabama fans will forever be on the losing end of the greatest football game ever. Joe Scarborough copes with it by making Auburn jokes. On Thursday’s episode of Morning Joe, MSNBC’s resident Roll Tider ended a segment on the NCAA’s recent vote on the possibility of paying student athletes with the line: “I mean, Auburn’s […]

Michael Strahan using the Iron Bowl to explain football to Kelly Ripa on ‘Live! with Kelly and Michael’

There were so many of them. So. Many. They just kept coming. Morning calls from mom, morning calls from the mom-in-law, emails, texts, tweets: “They’re talking about, they’re talking about, they’re talking about…” They were talking about the Iron Bowl. Everyone. Matt. Al. Whoopi. Barbara, Hoda. Kathie Lee. Brian. Diane. The Friends. I’ve tried finding […]

Shaquille O’Neal Kendall Simmons and family represent Auburn on ‘The Today Show’

<s>Shaquille O’Neal</s> Kendall Simmons and family represent Auburn on ‘The Today Show’

Al Roker has a knack for awkward encounters with Auburn fans on The Today Show plaza (I think it’s just because he expects so much). In March, he assumed that some Loveliest lovelies were in the Big Apple for March Madness. No. They weren’t. In fact, their school’s basketball coach had been fired the day […]
