Someone really needs to point the Auburn fans of the world towards a competent psychiatrist (or other appropriate mental health professionals), because their inferiority complex issues are really starting to get out of hand. Since they must act out and claim our 12 national titles aren't legit to feel good about themselves, here are some more records they can try to disregard:

Iron Bowl Record: Bama leads the rivalry with a 38-31-1 record, including a 9 game win streak from '73-'81 (No reports of Bama fans or coaches sporting "Fear the OTHER Thumb" apparel, but we're classy like that).

Number of SEC Titles:
Bama - 21 (Most in the conference's history)
Auburn - 6 (6th in the conference's history)

Number of 10+ Win Seasons:
Bama - 28 (More than any other team in NCAA history)
Auburn - 10 (#32 on the list)

All Time Win Percentage:
Bama - .712 (4th)
Auburn - .627 (18th)

Bowl Appearances:
Bama - 53 (More than any other team in NCAA history)
Auburn - 32 (16th)

Bowl Wins:
Bama - 30 (More than any other team in NCAA history with a 30-20-3 record and .594 win percentage)
Auburn - 17 (#15 with a 17-13-2 record and .562 win percentage)

The only thing Auburn can claim they have more of is Heisman Trophy winners (two, Pat Sullivan, QB, and Bo Jackson, RB), but I would like to counter that neither one went on to wear a Super Bowl ring while three Bama QBs (Starr, Namath, Stabler) have.

Obviously not Pat Sullivan's hand...

"We're classy like that"

That's debatable...

Classy is not nearly the first thing I think when i'm in Tuscaloosa on gameday.

Why is "Classy" such a buzzword for Bama Fans?

It's almost as important to Bama Fans as "Tradition"

maybe because we actually have class and tradition (beyond throwing toilet paper into trees) to buzz about.

I just love how 99% of college football discussions turn into an Alabama vs. Auburn battle even if the original conversation is about Old Dominion starting a football program. :D

All I'm saying is that it's usually the folks who always talk about how classy they are that are in the most desperate need of it.

It's kinda like the folks that talk about how rich they are. Big hat, no cattle.

Oh, and I'm not an Auburn Fan. I just get to enjoy living in this state with such classy fans!
