If you're on Twitter, then you've no doubt come across the phrase "Auburn Jesus" being used by opposing fans (and often Auburn fans, too). It really gained popularity during the 2013 run of "miracles" and it hasn't slowed down, since.
For reference, let's look at a series of tweets that came up right after Jason Smith's touchdown in Saturday night's Iron Bowl.

Now, we have the T-shirt for it.
A better, truer version of the Tecmo 8-bit Auburn t-shirt. AU logo actually pixilated. https://t.co/j7QlBdcP02 pic.twitter.com/s4s6nUOqyN— Clint Richardson® (@Clintau24) November 30, 2015
Oh, sure, it's supposed to be an 8-bit pixilated version of Auburn's football helmet. It's from the website Tecmobowlers.com, after all. And if anyone is going to have a Tecmo Bowl style helmet / t-shirt in college football, it should be the school that produced the greatest Tecmo Bowl legend of all time.
Take a closer look, though. You know you see it. Arms outstretched, robe flowing around him. It more closely resembles a pixilated version of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil than it does the Auburn logo.
So what do y'all think? Am I crazy? Wait, don't answer that, we know the answer to THAT question. Do you agree with me? That's better.
