Bama Fans Post Sign on I-10 in Louisiana Taunting LSU Fans (Picture)

Bama fans are going all out to taunt LSU fans leading up to the big game in T-Town Saturday. This sign was spotted on I-10 near Slidell and it says “LSU fans save your gas, Bama is gonna beat dat ass.”

We’re not expecting a beat down, but LB is calling a close win for Alabama. They have a better defense, a good running game, and the home field advantage. Maybe LSU fans shouldn’t waste their gas.

Honey Badger for Highsman GameDay Sign Wins (Picture)

At least this time when we had a misspelled poster, it made sense. LSU DB Tyrann Mathieu is nicknamed the “Honey Badger.” He got the name after the honey badger video went viral. Mathieu’s teammates all thought he played fearless like the honey badger, so they gave him the name. Mathieu also was busted a few weeks ago after testing positive for synthetic marijuana. Hence the “Highsman” line. Those Bama fans, despite what you may think, can be clever at times. I guess college football rivalries bring out the best in them.

Thanks to World of Isaac for the screen grab.

Auburn Fans Discuss Intentionally Getting Into Car Crashes with Alabama Players

SEC football fans are passionate and somewhat insane.  Anyone who follows college football is well aware of that.  Being a hardcore fan is one thing, but Alabama and Auburn fans have a tendency to take it too far quite often.  Believe it or not, the tree poisoner and the guy who yelled roll tide immediately following Osama bin Laden’s death have nothing on what some fans have been plotting recently.

The Alabama blog I Bleed Crimson Red called our attention to a criminal case in the making on Monday.  On an Auburn fan page through Rivals.com, Auburn fans have been discussing the potential of intentionally getting into car crashes with Alabama players.  In fact, one user even implied that someone on the message board was responsible for the car accident Mark Ingram was involved in last month.

“I think the easiest way to get to the bottom of this is to send someone from the Bunker to tuscaloosa undercover to just drive around until they spot (Tony) Richardson in his SUV and get into a little fender-bender with him,” user Wyatt4Auburn wrote. “Any volunteers?”

“Well, we sent AuburnProud to Huntsville to give Ingram a little going away present,” Prowlin TIger 99 responded. “Anyone have a high mileage truck or SUV with a sturdy brushguard looking for adventure?”

As I Bleed Crimson Red points out, this is clear cut criminal conspiracy.  There’s a good chance it’s just another case of people feeling tough behind a computer screen, but plotting an attack on someone should not be taken lightly.  Hopefully someone is forced to answer some questions about it.

I Bleed Crimson Red has screen shots of all the original posts in the Auburn message board if you want to check them out.  Pretty surprising stuff, even from one of the craziest fan bases in America.

Police Use Iron Bowl Tickets to Lure Deadbeat Parents in Sting Operation

Greatest sting operation ever. EVER. Watch this awesomeness:

You know what the worst part is? They could probably use this same exact trick over and over and the ding dongs would never learn. By the way, if police are so good with developing ingenious schemes like this when it comes to child support, why can’t they do the same thing when it comes to investigating murders?

Thanks to the Opelika-Auburn News for the video via Online Sports Guys. The OA News has also provided us with the letter used to nab the suspects (complete with spelling errors and everything!). Check them out below:

Nick Saban Does Not Approve of Fan Eric Blackerby’s ‘I Hate Auburn’ Shirt

Alabama football fan Eric Blackerby created a buzz at SEC Media Day this week when he showed up wearing this “I Hate Auburn” shirt:

Blackerby describes himself as Bama fan whose “love of and loyalty to the University of Alabama football team is unparalleled and completely inappropriate. I hate all other teams, and wish them peril.” He wrote on his site Saban’s Sidewalk that he bought the shirt before the tornadoes hit Tuscaloosa and that he knew it would be a big hit. However, he didn’t realize how much attention it would receive.

Video: Alabama Fan Yells Roll Tide Roll After Osama bin Laden Death

Leave it to an Alabama fan to have the most out-of-place reaction to the news of Osama bin Laden’s death:

What have we learned from this video? When in doubt, Roll Tide. Harvey Updyke would be proud.

Crazy Alabama Fan Poisoned 130-Year-Old Toomer’s Corner Trees on Auburn Campus

You want to know true hate in collegiate athletics? Look no further than the rivalry between Alabama and Auburn. The disgust between the schools was taken to a whole new level — or shall we say low — when it was revealed Wednesday that 130-year-old oak trees in the Toomer’s Corner area of Auburn’s campus were poisoned by an Alabama fan, as Andy Staples informed us.

Auburn first began investigating the soil in the area after a caller phoned into the Paul Finebaum Radio Show to gloat about his exploits (the same show a man having a heart attack called into last week). The tests finally came back and revealed that lethal amounts of an herbicide known as Spike 80DF were placed in the soil. According to a release, “The lowest amount detected was 0.78 parts per million, described by horticulture experts as a “very lethal dose.” The highest amount detected was 51 parts per million, or 65 times the lowest dose.”

That is just sickening. Are you really telling me that the only way Auburn can keep their trees safe is by losing to Bama in football?

University President Jay Gogue tried to place everything in context for the school’s supporters saying “It is understandable to feel outrage in reaction to a malicious act of vandalism. However, we should live up to the example we set in becoming national champions and the beliefs expressed in our Auburn Creed. Individuals act alone, not on behalf of anyone or any place, and all universities are vulnerable to and condemn such reprehensible acts.”

Now who really thinks Auburn won’t seek revenge? What’s next, demolishing campus buildings? Bulldozing statues? It doesn’t get much more disgusting than this.

Oh, and I think this story pretty much answers the question about which rivalry is the strongest in college sports. Apparently you’re not a rivalry until you’ve poisoned the shrubbery on the opposing school’s campus.

UPDATE: In this audio, you can hear the call from “Al from Dadesville” into the Finebaum Show as he brags about poisoning the trees. Asked if it’s illegal, he says “You think I care? I really don’t. Roll damn Tide!”
