“That’s the one thing Auburn and Auburn people have always instinctively known and should never forget. We don’t need Matt Hayes or Mel Kiper or Craig James or Rece Davis or ESPN or FoxSports or Brent Musberger or Kirk Herbstriet to validate us.
We are Auburn. That’s all that matters, not what somebody on the outside thinks or doesn’t think.
We are not defined or limited by the perceptions of others. We don’t need a T-shirt from Wal Mart boasting about things that never were to boost our ego. We don’t use our battle cry as a taunt to prop up our self-esteem. Our sense of worth isn’t determined by the number of stickers and flags we can put on our car.
We are who we are. We are what we are. We do what we do. And we’re damn proud of it.”
