Gameday on the Plains

It is that time of year again Auburn faithful. It is time to fire up the grills, pop open some cold ones, deck everything out in orange and blue, and head to our holy sanctum of Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium. This is why I am looking forward to this season in a nutshell:

1. I drove 437 miles from Paducah, KY to Auburn last night just to be here for the opening game. I know its just LA-Monroe, but going to these games since 1994, I have never missed a home opener.

2. I am very excited to see the new spread offense and its impact against the Warhawks. This game will not showcase much of the offense, but it will give me, and should give you fellow fans, a good indication on how this team looks.

3. I have been waiting for this time of year again. It just has that feel that cannot be replaced during the other drought stricken months. Especially from the stance that this will be my first attended game as an Auburn alum.

So my friends, let us all gather in Auburn for that renewal of the greatest time of the year. Get ready folks, Auburn football is in the air.
