Our tour of poster schedules continues with a look Auburn. The Tigers' effort was sent to us by Greg. Let's go to the reviews:


"This is a good-looking poster. I was immediately drawn to 'Auburn' at the top. I love the treatment of the letters; they looked kind of chromed and the images are crisp and clear. Each image within a letter shows enough of the action to let you know what is going on. Beveling also sets the letters apart from the dark sky. The use of the blue and orange type to signify home and away games is a nice touch as well.

"Jordan-Hare Stadium presents a powerful image when contrasted against the night sky. The message is clear: Visiting teams had better be prepared for a beat-down when they come to Auburn."

Mike from S.F.:

"Simple, yet effective. This poster is well done and reinforces that a tradition-rich program doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles to get the message across. My only complaint is the tight cropping of the stadium, obscuring the army of RVs that surround the area.

"Auburn's Southeastern Conference schedule is favorable, with Louisiana State, Tennessee and Arkansas visiting Jordan-Hare. The home opener is against Louisiana Monroe, which upset Alabama last season. There is a chance that the Warhawks will get as big a cheer when they run on the field as the Tigers."
