The Daily Believer is your daily-ish dose of whAUtever, a dose that grows by the second, minute, hour, who knows. Maybe there’s something going on tonight at the Gnu’s Room. Maybe there’s a volleyball game. Maybe there’s some update to The War Eagle Reader you need to know about. Maybe last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother referenced Bo, or had a nice, faux vintage Auburn t-shirt all up in it. Maybe Pat Dye’s Pants have no reserve on eBay. In other words, we’re live-blogging Auburn – town, gown, idea – and we need your help. Are you putting on an event? A show? Let us know. Know about one? Let us know. Spot Chizik at Byrons? Let us know. Did you see that episode of House? Let us know.

Best Offer, Best Explanation: The description says that the original owner never wore it. He also maybe never deserved it because, per the Wikipedia roster and… just checked… the 2004 Auburn Football Media Guide, there wasn’t a “Guthrie” on the team. Nevertheless, a 2004 Auburn Championship Season ring engraved with that name is currently up for bid / Buy It Now / Best Offer (currently has 3) on eBay. Unlike the rings once belonging to Florida players up for bid, it’s probably a salesman’s sample. Like it was two years ago. — [JDH – 1:32 p.m.]

Did you know that Gene Chizik taught third grade in the Tampa area right after graduation from Florida?
“You get a guy like him, he was a studly looking guy coming out of college,” [good friend Sam] Roper said. “So it was kind of like ‘Kindergarten Cop.’ He had that gift of gab, and the kids loved him.”
