The old timer's name gets mentioned enough by other people ridiculing our football program.
frick them. Don't care.
I'm ashamed that he represents our university,
Well, I am not. I am extremely proud Pat Dye was our coach and extremely happy he is still around and speaking in various outlets about AU. Pat Dye loves Auburn and I appreciate him.
Are you kidding me? He is the greatest coach Auburn has EVER had and may ever have. He was better than Shug. He did more for Auburn athletics, and AU people than maybe any single man every has. HE built the FOUNDATION. And he did it pretty much BY HIMSELF. We were a total fricking joke and pitiful when Dye arrived. We had no pride, we had no money, the stadium and field sucked arse with potholes and piss poor conditions all over the field. We had no facilities. We were losing money every year. We were a joke on the field. We were losers and had accepted a loser's mentality.
Pat Dye changed all of that. And Pat Dye was a stand up guy with tremendous character and it is his character that made us proud as AU fans again back in the 80's.
The fact he still cares so much about AU and only wants what's best for AU makes me even happier to have him associated with anything to do with AU.
