    Your stadium.
    I see "Jordan-Hare" yet I always hear Jurden Hare, or Jerden Hare.

    Not a flame I am just curious, my Arkansas buddy and I were discussing it this weekend.

    If its not pronounced Jordan - What is the correct pronunciation and why.

    Thanks

    Right. JER-den. An unusual pronunciation, but it's the guy's name so...

    Jordan was probably Swedish.

    Yes, it is "Jerdan Hare".

    It's named after the small, unimaginative Jerdan rabbits, who first came to the plains of Alabama when misplaced on a British HareWays flight. You can spot a Jerdan rabbit in rural areas by its receding hare line. It will also be wearing a fake BCS championship ring made of 14 carrot gold.

    Saturday will be a bad hare day for the Jerdans.

    Sorry, Auburn. You can't just decide that a name is pronounced a different way from which it's spelled. I can't think of any other word in our language in which the "o" makes a sound similar to an "e". So it's Jordan, like His Airness.

    But I guess if the Aubies want to be consistent, they have to pronounce "corndog" like "kerndeg".

    I think the name was changed after the last meeting there between LSU and Auburn. It's now called Jarett-Air Stadium.

    So it's pronounced Yerden Hare?

    Well I'll be a war-eagle's Swedish uncle.

    Forget pronouncing the name of the stadium.
    What mascot are they using this weekend?
    Tigers?
    War Eagles?
    Plainsmen?
