What It Means to Be a Tiger: Pat Dye and Auburn's Greatest Players

Ray Glier

Taking a decade-by-decade approach to the Auburn University football tradition, this collection brings together over 40 stories from the most outstanding voices of the program. The spirit of Tigers football is not captured by just one phrase, one season, or one particular game; instead, the student-athletes and coaches who made the magic happen over the decades blend their experiences to capture the true essence of their beloved school. Auburn fans will relish the intimate stories told by the figures they have come to cherish.

Athens and Limestone County (Images of America)

Kelly Kazek

Athens and Limestone County were founded in 1818, the year before Alabama became a state, making Athens one of its oldest cities. The quaint, picturesque downtown square in Athens, the county seat, is the heart of the community. Athens and Limestone County are studies in the ongoing tug-of-war between tradition and progress. Athens is traditionally a railroad and cotton town―once ranking among the state’s largest cotton producers―but since the aerospace boom of the 1960s, it has increasingly entered the orbit of the technology center of nearby Huntsville, home of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and Redstone Arsenal. These days, Athens is home to many manufacturing firms, and local civic groups are focused on revitalizing downtown and bringing tourists to Limestone County.

All In: Auburn's Incredible Run to the National Championship

Montgomery Advertiser

Moments after Wes Byrum s field goal sailed through the uprights to give Auburn its first national championship in 53 seasons, Cam Newton remarked, I guarantee you five or six months ago that nobody would have bet their last dollar to say that Auburn University is winning the national championship. We re smiling right now. We got the last laugh. Six years earlier, Auburn went undefeated but was locked out of the national title game by the BCS computers. There was no holding back the Tigers in 2010. Auburn s 22 19 win over Oregon capped a 14 0 season few could have seen coming. Second-year head coach Gene Chizik had compiled a 5 19 record in two seasons at Iowa State before taking the helm at Auburn in 2009. Newton, the starting quarterback, played at a junior college a year earlier. But as Heisman Trophy winner Newton piled up come-from-behind victories and the Tigers stormed through the SEC and on to the BCS, the Tigers left little doubt as to who was the country s top team. Packed with stunning action photography, stories, and analysis from the Montgomery Advertiser, All In takes fans through Auburn s exciting run from the season-opening win over Arkansas State to the championship celebration in Arizona. This commemorative edition also includes in-depth profiles of Newton, Chizik, and offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn.

The Auburn University Walking Tour Guide

Richard G. Millman

Welcome to Auburn, loveliest village of the plain and home territory for the education aspirations and accomplishments of generations of Alabamians.

            This guidebook points visitors toward the landmarks of architectural, historical, and human interest on the campus of Alabama’s land-grant university. Three walking tours explore the heart of the campus, and a “windshield tour” covers the sprawling periphery of an ever-growing university community. Readers will gain an eagle’s-eye perspective on life at Auburn and a ground-level appreciation of the buildings, monuments, and other features of the campus landscape.            Original paintings and sketches by the author supplement photographic images and a lively text to convey a panorama of the Auburn spirit. The traditions of Ag Hill, the social scene at Toomer’s Corner, the action at Jordan-Hare Stadium, the cutting-edge research in state-of-the-art scientific and technical facilities – all these and many other facets of Auburn become fresh and vivid through this guide. The narrative acquaints visitors with facts and legends about Samford Hall, Langdon Hall, and other buildings of particular architectural and historical distinction, and it also brings to light the significance of less-well-known campus structures in the experience of “the passing parade” – the students, teachers, townspeople, and university leaders who have shaped and reshaped Auburn over the years.            As befits a university with proud programs in architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design, the author pays special attention to how and why the buildings look as they do, and to how they fit together to create a setting for an academic community. Along the routes of the tours, the author identifies many “outdoor living rooms” – landscaped spaces where people interact with one another and with their environment to experience the way of life that is quintessentially Auburn.
