‘Auburn National Champs’ Gear Is Headed For The Junk Pile

auburn-shirts

Some images just speak for themselves, and this one speaks volumes.

This photo of cases of what are (we assume) now useless ‘Auburn Tigers National Champs’ t-shirts is making the rounds on Facebook, and Alabama fans will be sharing it all day.

Sports apparel manufacturers get ready for a big game like last night’s BCS Championship by printing shirts well ahead of the game. Academy Sports, a sports retailer based in San Antonio, TX, no doubt had cases of t-shirts ready for fans of whichever team won Monday night’s game.

No doubt Auburn fans would have stormed sporting goods stores across the state to pick up their ‘BCS National Champs’ gear had the Tigers been able to hold onto their big lead against the Seminoles.

Now, the shirts are likely headed for some third-world country, where they can do some good for people that – like most college football fans – have no idea where Auburn University is located.

    Gosh, I sure hate that! (Sarcasm intended) ROLL TIDE

      You guys have found a way to vent after alllllll that Iron Bowl and Sugar Bowl butthurt. Congrats! In a way, it’s probably a good thing AU lost. We’d have probably seen a rash of UA fan suicides if Auburn took the win.

        Thanks for that intelligent reply. ROLL TIDE!

    “Now, the shirts are likely headed for some third-world country, where they can do some good for people that – like most college football fans – have no idea where Auburn University is located.” Bahaha! Love this quote!

  • Steven H

    Yeah, that’s because Bama fans are among the most uninformed sidewalk fans in the nation.

    You do realize this exact same thing happened with Alabama “SUGAR BOWL CHAMPIONS” shirts too, right? Haha … Gotta love classless, uninformed, obnoxious Alabama fans. You children and your entire fanbase should be awarded the “Harvey Updyke Classless Fanbase Award”

      Hey sport, you think Auburn fills the stands with their graduates? Not likely. I’m proud to be, as you call it, “a sidewalk fan”. ROLL TIDE!

    “Now, the shirts are likely headed for some third-world country, where they can do some good for people that – like most college football fans – have no idea where Auburn University is located.”

    People probably assume Auburn University is located in Auburn AL. It’s just incredible how you kids assume other college football fans are as dumb as the typical UA fan. Haha … in the end, there’s one thing virtually every college football fan in America (other than Crimson Country) DOES know. It’s that Alabama fans are the most hated fanbase in college football. Don’t inflate your egos though, kids. It’s not jealousy. It’s a justified reaction based on the obnoxious, arrogant, uninformed, sidewalk dwelling UA “fan” … which makes up probably 80 percent of the UA following. You can add poor sportsmanship to that list as well.

      Well according to this image from MSNBC, at least one media outlet assumes Auburn is located somewhere in Georgia.

      Three comments to one story? I’m leaving all of them up so that our regular readers can enjoy them. If you’re also a regular reader, welcome; we allow rival fans here too – not just the Alabama faithful.

      But don’t start spamming or you’ll be banned. When in doubt: lighten up, Francis.

        Thanks BH, we do enjoy them. Especially when it’s some poor Auburn fan who cant get over the fact his team couldn’t hang on for 1:13 in the NCG.

    • Auntie Bama

      And your posts AREN’T the rants of an ‘obnoxious’ Auburn fan?

  • Steven H

    In the last 40 seconds of last night’s game, the University of Alabama fanbase came out of hiding … emerging from their caves, shotgun houses etc and found new purpose after their terrible last month or so. Sure, Alabama got crushed by Auburn … and Oklahoma beat McCarron and Saban like they owed em money … but you kids gotta release all the butthurt from the last month + somehow. Kinda glad you guys have something to live for again. I was worried we’d have seen thousands of crimson red wearing people jumping off bridges had Auburn won last night.

      Well Steven, you keep talking about Bama losses, but you fail to remember you lost your bowl game too. THE bowl game! Bama doesn’t go every time, but when they do, they win.
