I have lived in Alabama all my life, and have been pondering how this feeling towards Auburn has been festering for the last few years and it all comes to a common person in that organization "Tubby". I have known Alabama and Auburn fans and there is a definate difference between them. Alabama fans are very tradition oriented to a fault. They change a light bulb and talk about how great it was. Most of their fans sit on their collective hands at games and continue to try to soak up the Bear tradition. The other "fans" are your NASCAR enthusiasts, who never stepped foot on the campus until they went to a football game, have another hobby to go watch. Auburn on the other hand has your good ole boy type of fans that love their team win or lose and have a passion when they walk into the stadium. I have always said Auburn fans lead the country in RPM's on shakers. I really like Auburn fans and how they support their teams. I grew up with all these folks and have in the last few years began to have an intense disliking to their program because of their coach. In the Bham paper last week, there was an article talking about how all the the west schools hate tubberville. Some of the things that have bothered me about Tubbs are as follows: 1. The lighting up of cigars against a team that really was pitiful. I have always said as our bball coach says, a team is a reflection of its coach. 2. Running up the score at Auburn a few years ago when he could have hit a knee. 3. The stomping on the logo and the Duval on the field as our band played. 4. His complete lack of his own accountability when he loses. Ask Auburn fans how much he blames the players instead of himself. 5. His spineless firing of the coaches that followed him from Ole Miss just because King Lowder (Auburn's Steinbreiner) told him to. I can go on but my point is that while I respect and like the Auburn fans and what their team has done, I completely disrespect their coach. I have not met many Auburn fans that say they like him mainly because he doesnt represent a true Auburn person that has class both on the field and off. Most of them say that if he stumbles whatsoever, they will run him out of town on the next train because of the antics that he does to embarrass them. I look forward to discussion from both sides on this one.
