At this point, I think this qualifies as a tradition.
Filed under Whoa, oh, Alabama
Alright Orson, do your thing!!
If Georgia ever wins it I hope they at least step it up a notch and display it at Target.
That’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are.
Waffle House, baybee!
This is beautiful. You have no idea how much crap my Auburn friends were giving the Alabama people about displaying the trophy at Wal-Mart. MAN, I wish I could be eat that kind of crow next year.
“could eat”, not “could be eat”
Do you think they selected Columbus, GA because of Crowell?
Columbus is an Auburn kinda town.
Columbus is a shithole that is packed full of AU idiots.
Yeah, Columbus is barely a 30-minute drive from Auburn and AU alums are almost as well-represented here as UGA grads. Nevertheless, I think I will be able to keep my curiosity in check and abstain from paying my respects to the trophy when it passes through C-Town.
I will also resist the temptation.
Dude… one well placed shot from a BB gun will shatter that thing into a million pieces. Do it for the Bulldog Nation.
What class! I guess the men’s rooms at the public parks were already booked.
I went to Columbus High. Columbus is so close to Auburn it sucks.
Columbus High class of 1998! Go Devils!
Shane’s having a shit fit as we speak…
Any Dawg fan living in Columbus with some balls will pull an Orson Charles and break the damned thing.
Isn’t Columbus still in the great state of Georgia??? I think Chiz man should keep their paws, or is it wings??, and saban, his trunks out of OUR state
For many years, the UGA-AU game was played in Columbus, sort of like the Cocktail Party in Gainesville. I think it ended before the Truman administration, though.
Last played AU in Columbus in 1958 (Eisenhower).
I got a good enough look at it on TV.
I understand it’s lighted from the base. Clap-on, clap-off switch.
Since the structure of that church in Newnan has been recently upgraded, and is now safe, perhaps Cheatz-it should place it on the alter and give thanks.
if you can’t laugh at this, you don’t possess a sense of humor.
Betcha didn’t know Larry The Cable Guy was a Bama fan…
That made my day.
Those were the good ole days.
I was born and raised in Columbus, as was the entire Mize family. We played lots of golf growing up but didn’t concentrate much on grades and shit like that. In fact, my brother Carter played collegiate golf and is looked up to by many guys at CCC and Green Island. When it came time for me to attend college, I was refused acceptance by Georgia (not a surprise) and Auburn (surprise) so I had to attend our version of UCLA (Univ. of Columbus ‘longside the airport). Otherwise known as COlumbus State. After two years I transfered to Auburn where I excelled at drinking beer, chasing tail, and being stupid. I graduated a litte late but my folks were still proud. I got married and opened a used sporting goods business – Trade it in Sports (I think that’s what it was called. It was a franchise type business) – which eventually failed b/c I was playing too much golf and drinking too much beer. I’ve been selling insurance since then and been getting by. Suntrust is an ok place to work.
The reason for me saying all this is that Columbus is not that bad of a town if you’re from here and play alot golf. AU was close by and since GA refused my application twise, I decided that AU was the plase for me. I could stay close to home and within my comfort zone (I never really had the confidence to get too far from home and away from people just like me) and continue the lifestyle I had grown accustomed to growing up in Columbus, Ga. So don’t make fun of Auburn it was a good fit for me. I don’t like it when people rag on Auburn b/c it’s a better school than what people say it is and the people there are not all that much different than those in Athens or Chapel Hill.
By teh way, since there are alot of Columbus people on here and since I’m using my real name (you all know me), let me know if you want to go to Country’s for lunch today. Please also know that I’m interested in changing companies but would like to stay in the personal insurance business. I don’t really want to work for Synovus.
Give it a rest Matt. I had to enlist in the marines b/c I was such a loser. At least I went to GA.
I’m a better golfer than you.
They call me little Napolean b/c I’m 5’3″, loud, obnoxious, and annoying as hell. Plus, I’m an arrogant little jerk that thinks he’s hot shit b/c he’s from Columbus. I was an SAE at Georgia, so yes, I am a big deal.
If and when the Dawgs win the BCS I don’t care if they take the glass egg to Big Lots. Oh hell, Dollar Tree is fine with me. Wallmart? If the Dogs win I will put on the vest and greet people at the door. Would you like a cart, Maam?
I heard the trophy doesn’t even have Auburn’s name inscribed on it. It just says ” us too”.
What does UGA’s BCS Trophy say–oh, that’s right. Sorry. Forgot.
