Good Times on The Plains
The ESPN "GameDay" crew arrived Saturday in Auburn, and this brought out the usual assortment of circus characters. The hometown Tigers responded with a 27-17 victory over No. 2 Florida that likely ended any hopes the Gators entertained of playing in the BCS title game. What a difference a week makes. Seven days ago, Auburn faithful were licking their wounds after the Tigers were humbled by Arkansas, 27-10. But all is well in Tiger Nation and we have the evidence, thanks to loyal reader Greg. Right out of a Sergio Leone spaghetti western comes a sign-carrying Tiger fan spelling out "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." Then we have the beast, dressed up in his game jersey, and a beauty. Representatives of USC and Michigan also were on hand. Of course, the California guy is on the cell phone. Let's hope he didn't take the Trojans and give the points to Arizona State. Another sign summed up the feelings of Tiger fans toward Urban Meyer, and another fan holds up an alligator skin behind the "GameDay" set.
