Speakin’ of those orange jerseys, Craftmasters thought us sufficiently into them once upon a time to feature them on the cover of an Auburn Football Illustrated, coincidentally (?) for a game against the SEC’s orange jersey originals.

Yeah – used to think, man it would be cool – BUT…when you really look at them, “It don’t matter, as long as he’s got on a BLUE jersey.”
If you look closely, you will see that Cribbs, Brooks and a few others do no have stripes on their jerseys. That is because they were wearing “tear-away” jerseys.
I also see that #90 Jersey that’s in the other thread. Or at least another of it.
Don’t know if it’s still there, but Byron Franklin’s #82 orange jersey was hanging up at the Buffalo Connection several years ago when he had part ownership in the place.

I was at this game. Jerseys I didn’t care for and this was not a good day for AUburn in many ways. We were totally waxed by the Vols. And unfortunately when the Vols came out for pregame they were bombarded with oranges from the student section, a rare classless act. If I remember right one of the fraternities sold oranges outside the stadium before the game. Also one of our majorettes also had a top malfunction (shoulder straps broke) at half time. Ok that wasn’t so bad.

That was my first game in Jordan-Hare…just a wee little 5 year old Tiger. Don’t think I noticed the majorette’s clothing mishap. That would have been pretty cool.
Another interesting thing I noticed in the picture that I don’t believe I’ve ever seen before, there appear to be helmet stickers on the back of some of the players helmets. I didn’t know Auburn ever did that.
@Will: Barfield gave out those helmet stickers which were known as “weagles”. They were little black silouettes of eagles awarded like the FSU “hatchets” and OSU’s “buckeyes”.
Will, I just noticed the helmet stickers myself and was asking Jeremy what he knows about them.
While this program was for the Tennessee game, I believe the photograph was taken at the Georgia game.
Man that grass looks rough.
