Athletically and aesthetically (and alcoholically), the Barfield Era was kind of the Willy Wonka tunnel ride of Auburn football, right down to the wacky, short lived logos (weagle weagle)… like this Haight-Ashbury poster worthy design that squeezed a “War Eagle” into the shape of a helmet. It was featured on the player pages in 1977 Auburn Football Illustrated gameday programs.

What a nightmare. Whoever decided the R should go on top of the A made a serious error in judgment.

It looks like I should be drinking crag ale in Auburn. Someone should brew some up in a bathtub to help watch the last 4 games.
