Another great thread lost in the crash I do believe. This isn't from the Bunker, but Auburn's 247 site, but displays that same certain bit of cultish crazy that we've all grown to know and love. I had no idea a mascot could be so revered. Auburn still refusing to allow Corso to wear Aubie headgear Ron Sanders 6 hours ago ESPN College GameDay analyst Lee Corso donning headgear every Saturday has become a college football tradition, but he won't be wearing an Aubie head anytime soon. Corso commented Monday afternoon during an ESPN luncheon at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta on Auburn's refusal to allow him to wear Aubie's headgear. "Auburn is the only school in America that will not let me put on the headgear. They have some kind of rule that you have got to be a special kind of human being to wear this guy's headgear." Of course, this is nothing new. Corso has commented numerous times on-air about the policy. When picking the Tigers, he normally wear an Auburn helmet instead. wde83 5 hours ago I personally don't want to see that clown wear Aubie's head! It is a " secret cult", That's what makes Aubie different from all the bulldogs and elephants, etc. mascots. mwdeav 5 hours ago As clearly shown by his tweet, Aubie is a person, not a costume. Auburn has unique traditions. They will be preserved. autgr4life 4 hours ago You do realize that the head is actually made into the costume and not removable correct? Would you want the university to destroy a "costume" as you call it just to allow Corso to put in on for a game day? However with that being said I firmly disagree that it is a costume. It is a uniform. Are there not tryouts to be Aubie? Is he not part of the cheer squad or whatever it is called? Do you consider the outfits the cheer leaders wear to be "costumes" or are they uniforms? From Dictionary.com: noun - an identifying outfit or style of dress worn by the members of a given profession, organization, or rank. By definition it is a uniform. Aubie is very identifiable and it is exclusively worn by members of an organization. DizzAU 3 hours ago Tez. We friends. But I whole heartedly disagree with you here. The Aubie Persona is not a Suit. Its not a thing to be given to someone. The idea that espn is trying to make this a story is the real issue. And I for one hope they never allow Corso to don anything Au. Crying little girl he is anyway. And its not that we take ourselves or Aubie too seriously. Its that we take pride in what Aubie is and stands for. Aubie is the embodiment of the Auburn Spirit. He is the fool and the mentor all in one. He is also a representative of our culture. Anytime a person becomes a Friend of Aubie they have become a part of a legacy that includes 10 national titles and more philanthropy than any other mascot around the country. This all said to end with this..... Aubie does not have a removable head. It is a part of the suit. And as your friend would know....It doesn't come off. So for Corso to don the head would mean destroying one of the suits (which are kept to honor his legacy) just to pander to an old man that cant hold his head up most of the time ( no slight to his issues but he shouldn't be on TV anymore).... I say....SCREW ALL OF THAT. Aubie is not a toy or a head...He is Aubie and I agree 100% in not allowing this clown to wear any piece of that suit.
