Despite losing the BCS National Championship Game to Florida State, a contingent of Auburn fans still found cause to cheer. The Tigers came within an eyelash whisper of bringing home the title, and that was reason enough to roll Toomer’s Corner.
Considering the team finished 3-9 the season prior, and were 500-to-1 long shots to win the championship, it’s hard to fault the fans’ optimism.
This display is the difference between War Eagle and Roll Tide this season. Alabama barely misses out on its third-consecutive championship game and some delusional fools call for Saban’s head on a pike. Auburn lost a title game that it had nearly wrapped up, yet its fans kick on the Tupac and hit the Corner.
