Hatefest 2009: Why we hate… Auburn?

Big names we have sometimes played week starts a little late with Auburn.

The team:

The reason why the Hokies hate Auburn goes back to the 2005 Sugar Bowl Game. With 2 minutes left in the game, the Auburn Tigers were able to run out the game clock without ever moving forward. Auburn found a way, while having the 25 second play clock, to just take knees to end the game. I know you are thinking how? 25 times 3 only is 75 seconds which is 1 minute and 15 seconds. They used a nicely timed delay of game penalty which made the clock continue to run and gave them another down to keep the clock running. Nothing like having a stupid penalty that goes against oneself help determine the outcome of a game.

This has been dubbed in some circles as “taking an Auburn knee”. This means to stop playing and run out the clock long before it seems capable of doing so. (Someone really has to put that in urban dictionary)

The town:

Auburn, Alabama is a lot like Blacksburg, in that it is dominated by the college campus. Auburn also has a very large Fine Arts Museum. Whatevs.

The Fans and Students:

Seriously, pick a mascot already. Is it the Tiger or is it the War Eagle? What is going on down there?

Also, since Auburn is a SEC school they automatically have better looking co-eds, which is just annoying.

Auburn’s greatest and most vocal alumnus is the one and only Sir Charles Barkley. He should worry more about his horrible golf swing or running for governor of Alabama than Auburn athletics.
