Your first sentence sums this piece up perfectly. An Auburn alum and former Plainsman staff and editorial board member myself, I can't believe it was decided to waste print space with this haughty, chip-on-the-shoulder, our-shit-don't-stink attitude of an editorial. "If you've nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" clearly wasn't on the minds of the board members hooting and hollering around the editorial table over the greatest win in the history of college football. I will say that the last sentence of this piece is pretty clever; too bad it was wasted on such an insignificant and classless topic.

If your man enough to write this article why don't you sign your name to it? I'd probably put by "Editorial Board" too if I wrote this garbage..

Please forgive my iphone grammar not at a PC it's just a game any team that wins in the beautiful state of alabama should be celebrated don't let your hate for your perspective rival out weight your love for your home state or adopted state any one living in al could be considered a hammer in the right set of hate filled eyes there is no one living who is truly classy not even if the queen of England came to Bryant d or Jordan h we have all done something uncivil in the eyes of someone with "hi morals and standards so let's collectively show love if not understanding mutual respect or tollerance which evr you chose let's not let hate spoile a good time we can choose to be proud of and sec team especially one from alabama whom ever competes in the bcs show so pride because it could be a team from another conf wining then we would have a tollally different problem lets just en-joy

As an Auburn alum, I want to express my disappointment in the Plainsman editorial staff in printing this piece. Auburn men and women are known for their class, dignity and respect. This editorial exudes nothing but the opposite. I believe in Auburn and love it, but I do not love that the editorial board of such a respected publication has printed such a demeaning and classless piece.

Oh the irony… Have you forgotten that a few of your own sent DEATH TREATS to BRENT CALLOWAY for switching his allegiance at the last minute; Scott Moore for threatening to play bogus tapes; and Harvey Updyke as well. Lastly, I do recall a certain AUBURN kicker receiving similar threats from his fellow “family” after singlehandedly losing the LSU game a few years ago. I bet you’ve forgotten all about these incidents, haven’t you? But I don't want to lump ALL Auburn fans into this category, because a TRUE Auburn fan would never commit such a heinous act. Point is: Both sides has its fair share of idiots. But the fact that you can point a finger without realizing three more are pointed back at you only proves you're a delusional hypocrite. I personally am an Alabama fan. I'm married to an Auburn fan. I was born and raised in a split household. I currently reside in Auburn and love it here. I love the people. The traditions. The spirit. But like the Alabama fanbase, there are a few idiots, such as yourself, that do their best to ruin a great rivalry. A rivalry that proved it wasn't as heated as many bill it when a deranged maniac killed a landmark that has seen many generations come and pass... and also proved it wasn't as heated when the Auburn family was the first to respond in the tornado aftermath of Tuscaloosa. Major props to the Auburn fans taking a stand against this idiot.

I had to read this article twice. Heres why. 1.I was schooled in Alabama and I ain't never read a heap nor been took nowhere much. 2.I couldn't believe that anyone smart enough to be admitted to Auburn would write something this sophomoric. Mostly number 2. Seriously, is this a spoof or a troll attempt? I find it incredulous that a journalism major would pen such tripe. If this is real, give yourself an F and do better. If a Bammer wrote it and slipped it as a joke - then that's just the troll of the century.

I am extremely disappointed in the editorial staff of my Alma Mater's newspaper. You have just stooped to a level of classlessness far below the worst you described in any Alabama fan. EVERYONE ON THE PLAINSMAN EDITORAL BOARD SHOULD BE DISMISSED IMMEDIATELY!!! ANY FACULATY MEMBER COMPLICIT IN THIS SHOULD FOLLOW SHORTLY BEHIND.

I just don't get the point of this... it feels like a spiteful rant of a losing team. But we won. We won in the most exciting Iron Bowl in present history. Stuff like this is what you see going on at AU/UA fan sites - by rabid fans that don't have affiliation to the school. It is sad to see this coming from our own students. Do you think this of all of your friends who attend Alabama? Your cousins, and siblings, and neighbors? I know what you mean when you say "Bammer", but many people will assume you're lumping in ALL Alabama fans. You didn't preface this by explaining what segment of UA fans bammers are. I find this piece to be very inappropriate.

C'mon, AU Plainsman. You can't claim to be the "classier" fan base and then publish articles like these. I could understand some AU fanatic blog website posting this, but not a newspaper who seeks to be considered a credible source. Face it, there's fans on both sides of the rivalry that take it too far.
