On November 16, 1978, the Auburn Spirit Association, in conjunction with Auburn Student Affairs Association, bought the world a Coke, and taught it how to say “War Eagle.”
Two days later, Auburn played Georgia to an 18-18 tie at Jordan-Hare. Also, 918 people committed suicide in Jonestown. Not the greatest of weekends. But at least the Thursday before was kind of cool.

Two things about that 1978 Georgia game:
1. We were huge underdogs (somewhere in the 14 point range) so the tie wasn’t that bad.
2. On the last play of the first half, William Andrews scored as time expired. The official on the spot signaled touchdown. Another official twenty yards away waved it off and said Andrews’ knee touched a couple of inches short of the goal line. To quote a line in an old book, “We was robbed!”
