    Honor Before Victory

    Now more than ever, Cyclone Nation needs to hold onto this creed.

    Whomever comes in to lead this program needs to understand the meaning of these words.

    Our players walk by this plaque before every game and anyone involved with this program need to hold themselves to this message

    To our players, this is your opportunity to band together and not let this get the better of you. Look to each other. You will get through this, you will find success here and in there future, and it will make you better men for it.

    Wow, amen, Bader. Great post.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Can't agree more. This is what we need from fans, players and coaches.

    Ironic that we fired a guy like Mac before this gets put up, then hire a guy like Chizik, and have to turn to it after he defies it's meaning.

    Didn't the embattled governor of Illinois graduate from Auburn? Roll Tide.

    JP is putting up a new plaque to signify the Chiz Era:

    Searched "Honor Before Victory" and found this. I thought it was a good time for a bump on it.
