You've all heard it by now. Bama fans are taking up the mantra from UGA fans. Your co-workers are saying it. Your friends are saying it. If you're very unlucky, your family is saying it. Heck, even random strangers who see your Auburn shirt are stopping you to tell you that Auburn is dirty.
Earlier today a Facebook "friend", who happens to be a bama fan, posted a photo from Auburn's 1972 season. The photo, with the superimposed caption, "Auburn Tigers - Redefining the phrase 'unsportsmanlike conduct' since 1972 - WAR DROPKICK!", shows David Langner leaping in the air with the apparent intent to deliver a drop kick to an opposing player.
I'm not here to debate whether or not Langner actually turned ninja in an attempt to injure another player (actually it looks to me like he's trying to block a punt). I'm here to remind bama fans that the dirtiest play in the history of college football occurred when Tommy Lewis decided to take matters into his own hands during the 1954 Cotton Bowl.
The next time a bama fan tries to tell you that Nick Fairley is the dirtiest player ever, or that Auburn is the dirtiest program ever, please refer him/her to this.
