    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

      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.

    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.

    As clearly shown by his tweet, Aubie is a person, not a costume.

    Auburn has unique traditions. They will be preserved.

    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.

    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.

    • I really think it is about his personality. Auburn goes to great lengths to personify the Aubie uniform so much that IT (the uniform) essentially becomes a real being. To take away his head would be akin to murder (thus the animal abuse comment). It doesn't particularly matter to me, but I do like ruffling the feathers of ESPN whenever possible.

    Sig Spearfisher said... (original post)Pretty dumb if you ask me... Let em wear the head... We're the only school that doesn't and I'm sure there's the same tradition and stuff at other schools for their mascots
    It's all well and good until he pulls a head fake and disrespectfully throws the Aubie head across the stage. That's why we don't do that

    I loved attending Auburn. I loved the town. I enjoyed everything about my experience.

    The special place/fambly types make me want to kill myself. The community and college experience was fantastic, but everyone loves college. The longer I am away from Auburn, the more that I generally dislike most of the hardcore Auburn types. Everything in this thread is embarrassing.

    I originally got to this message board because I was so sick of hearing our fan base defend Tommy Trott, Jake Holland, and Barrett Trotter types. Scout's AU message board was full of closeted racists that praised the aforementioned white kids and would not allow anyone to point out facts like Holland was slow and took terrible pursuit angles. That message board loves gym rats, coach's sons, coaches on the field, scrappy Auburn MEN.

    It's an incredible narrative that someone began (Housel maybe?) that really caught on. So many seem to think that Auburn is truly the one place where alumni care deeply about their school and where there is a connection between the university and the town where it is located.

    I had to love the article Rob Pate wrote after the Iron Bowl last year that was posted on here that was just the perfect example. Had to google it just to remember:

    "I still wake up the day after an Iron Bowl loss thankful I'm on the Auburn side of the rivalry. I know many fantastic Alabama people that love their university every bit as passionately as I do Auburn...as they should. But love of Alabama is easy love, cheap love, lazy love. The enormity of their sidewalk alumni proves this point. To love Auburn, you must first experience Auburn...and once you do it's in your blood forever."

    " No matter the result of any Iron Bowl, any season-both grand or grotesque, I will stand firm in my resoluteness to Auburn University. I will be proud of the close-knit family that defines who we are. I will do my part to help Auburn be successful by supporting the university, its colleges, its students, its athletics programs with my attendance, my involvement, my treasure. Auburn is not an idol in my life, if it ceased to exist tomorrow I could move on and function just fine, but Auburn represents an ideal of the very tenants that drive me and have molded me into who I am. You can shake a shaker, sing a song, and even claim fifteen national titles, but Alabama will never get who we are. They will surely defeat us sometimes on the football field again, but they'll never defeat our enthusiasm for our school, our program, and our decisions to be Auburn men and women. They may see us as little brother and I think that is just fine. Big brother lives life petrified that little brother will outshine him someday. We have been there many times before and we'll be there many times again, and it will be sooner rather than later."

    I mean that is the most brainwashed self-absorbed nonsense that I've ever seen put on paper, and Rob Pate even puts on paper that he doesn't believe in evolution.

    Special Fucking Open Creed Letter To The Quarterback

    Open Letter to Auburn QB Jeremy Johnson

    Jeremy,

    You don’t know me, but I’m one of thousands of fans who love to watch the Tigers play on Saturdays in the Fall.

    This is your year.

    “I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.”

    You’ve waited. You’ve trained. You’ve prepared yourself. And now is your time. It’s all yours for the taking.

    “I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.”

    Let’s be honest. It’s been a rough start. Nobody can argue with that, and I know you’re not denying it. I know that with your team and your coaches you’ve said what needed to be said. The “I will do better” and the “We can do better” moments have come and you meant them. Truthfully.

    “I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.”

    You’re not scared of what lies ahead. You know that this weekend, LSU will be a challenge. You’re not afraid. And you shouldn’t be. We all know that you’re still the Quarterback that we saw pass for 243 yards and two touchdowns in the first half against Arkansas last year. Nothing has changed. Except maybe your understanding that this is a game you love to play and that you can play it well.

    You read your own press. It’s OK. Nobody amongst us could blame you. But it’s time to forget it. You’re now the leader of a team of great men.

    “I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.”

    Jeremy, don’t listen to the few that would want to say awful things to you during this time. They don’t represent the Auburn Family that I know and love. The same family that supports one another through all hard times. Your brothers and sisters have your back. Still.

    “I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by “doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God.”

    God. He has prepared you for this moment. He is bringing your blessings to pass. Your prayers of one day playing Quarterback for a great program have been answered, and HE will see you succeed. I know that. And you need to remember that.

    “And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.”

    And we believe in you, Jeremy. Just like we believe in every young man or woman who puts on the blue, orange or white uniform and represents Auburn University. This weekend you have a great test ahead of you. But know that we believe in you. That we support you. And because we believe in and love Auburn, we believe in and love you.

    All the best, and War Eagle!
