Auburn’s Pre- and Post-Game Rituals. Before the coin toss, fans at Jordan-Hare Stadium are whipped into a frenzy by the “flight of the eagle.” As they roar “W-a-a-a-r,” and opponents look on in trepedation, a trained raptor pounces on a leather falconry lure at midfield as the crowd booms: “EAGLE!” If Auburn wins, look out for the “rolling” of Toomer’s Corner: Fans wielding rolls of Charmin and Scott cover the ancient oaks lording over that intersection with bath tissue.

Bobby Dodd Stadium, Georgia Tech. Hiding in plain sight in midtown Atlanta, two miles from the Georgia Dome, is this colorful 97-year-old treasure. Designed and built by the school’s students in 1913, this Fenway-esque old bowl exists in a different dimension. One of the most irresistibly charming vignettes in college ball remains the gold and white, OOGHA-ing Rambling Wreck—1930 Ford Cabriolet Sport Coupe—making its quaint dash across the field before every home game.

The Landing, Jacksonville The bawdiness and license on The Landing the day before the Florida-Georgia tilt evinces a college rivalry so bitter it must be held at a neutral site in Jacksonville (EverBank Field, formerly called Alltel Stadium). The SEC has asked media outlets to stop referring to the game as “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” Now it is “The Bacchanalia That Dare Not Speak its Name.”

    I am a hard-core Razorback fan. In the world of tailgating, there is Ole Miss at one end of the spectrum and everyone else at the other! P. S. The centerpiece of the recently living boar's head was a nice touch last year! :-/
