    What's the difference in an au fan and an ua fan. They're both Alabama natives mostly. I see them at each others throats but it's like two brothers fighting, two turds floating in the same toilet to me. Each say the other is a stupid redneck. To me as an lsu fan they're both rednecks from Alabama. Tiger bait! What am I missing here?

    Auburn is the brains and Alabama is the brawn?

    Not sure but it happens in every state that has only 2 major college athletic programs. Alabama people are just a lil more crazy...

    You must be unaware of who runs that SEC office and uh, Rivals.

    We are all quite aware of Alabama's 12th man advantage on the field.

    From my limited perspective, the Bama fans are more of a down-to-earth background and prone to Updyke extremism and the Auburn fans are a bit snoottier in general with wanna-be-elitist attitude. I believe someone on this forum sig line states it very well, “I got my Auburn tshirt because I went to Auburn, you got you Bama tshirt because you went to Wal-mart."

    However, the generally accepted, succinct verison is as follows: Auburn is trying to build a football program that the university and the Auburn family can be proud of. Alabama is trying to build a university that the football team can be proud of.
