How to Beat Auburn: 5 Tips from a 'Bama Fan for the Mizzou Tigers

Categories: Mizzou

If anyone knows Auburn's weaknesses, it's an Alabama fan.
The University of Missouri Tigers are still new to the SEC, so a University of Alabama fan offered up some advice to best the school's fiercest rival, the Auburn Tigers, in the championship game.

In an open letter to Mizzou that went viral on Monday, a 'Bama fan known only as 5026 says the Crimson Tide will be rooting for Missouri during the game Saturday at the Georgia Dome -- not too far from Alabama.

"Here in the SEC, we appreciate resilience, and you have SHOWED it all season long," the Alabama fan writes. "Believe me, you beating [Auburn] will not only be appreciated in Tuscaloosa, but pretty much in the whole country."

If anyone can offer insight into Auburn's weaknesses, it's an Alabama fan.

Football is an all-year sport in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which is hundreds of miles from the closest professional sports franchise, and Auburn makes an easy target only 160 miles up the road. The rivalry spun out of control years ago when a 'Bama fan poisoned Auburn's famous oak trees -- the equivalent to knocking down the columns in Mizzou's quad.

"You guys are the news guys on the block, so you know you ain't getting anything handed to you," the fan writes.

its embarrasing really. Its a game. not really worth, oh say, killing someone, threatening a 22 year old kicker, or acting like a total jackass. The woman who lost her life over a game had three small children. Children who will now grow up without a mother over a game. some of these bammers are just plain ignorant. and half have never even seen the school in person let alone have a college education! you would think they helped build the school


So, Alabama is the Roll Tides, but they have an elephant mascot. Stupid Bammer!


I am an Auburn fan and I have tremendous respect for the University of Missouri and their loyal fans. In fact, I was at the game back in the 1970s when Mizzou drillled Bama. I also saw a Mizzou family attacked by Bama rednecks as they tried to walk back to their car after that game. The Bama fan who is giving you "advice" is really saying more about his lack of class than offering any useful tips. He is just another bitter "crybammie". But, what do you expect from a school that has the lowest academic admission standards this side of the Mississippi border?  I will tell you that the best way to beat any football team. All you have to do is execute in every phase of the game, don't turn the ball over, don't get penalties, block, tackle, and run faster. The coaches have to play smart as well.
