No, you're still from Auburn

The Auburn Plainsman turns unintentional comedy into a front-page art form this week with its hypothesis that -- get this -- the university's 13-0 football season will give Auburn students a leg up on other employment seekers.

As a lifelong, diehard Alabama Crimson Tide fan, I know I have to cut attendees of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute a little slack from time to time, but that rule only applies when the folks on the Plains do or say things with any connection whatsoever to reality. So here's the deal, Tigers: Yes, you will be hired if you're the best fit for the niche the company is looking to fill. No, you won't be hired because Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown are first-round NFL draft prospects. Sorry if I shattered any dreams there.

Auburn fans, if you're reading, please do something to stop this kind of madness. It just doesn't reflect well.

Yeah, Auburn is a great team that got gyped in the bowls this year. However, I watched their game against Georgia and whoever hit that guy blindside on the helmet should never, ever, be allowed to play football again. At any rate, I certainly wouldn't hire him for your business.

I remember that play. It was a pretty close call on replay, but I wish the defenders hadn't celebrated the hit so much, especially since it looked for a minute like the guy was dead.

Auburn's football team did get jobbed in the national title race, but that won't stop me from having great fun at API's expense.

Hey now, no vulgarity in the comments...

And yes, if there was any doubt, "Roll Tide" is the correct answer.
