Auburn’s 2016 Football (and clothing) Schedule
You may have noticed that what I call “pocket schedules” have been popping up around Auburn the last week or so. They are the true sign that football is getting real. It’s close.
Well, I picked one up at the Great Clips over the weekend and noticed that a few things have changed with Auburn’s clothing schedule. You see, for people that look for
dumb less important things to blogle about, these schedules have been good for content. They usually tell us when the “All Auburn, All Orange” and “True Blue” games will be happening. This year, that has changed.
As you see, now they’re just telling us what to wear and not giving it a fancy name, which I’m fine with, but even then there are a few more changes. Now there are two “blue” games, one being the now customary “Military Appreciation” game.
To be honest, I like wearing blue a little more often. Since Tuberville, I’ve always gone with wearing orange unless they told us any different. So now they are doing that.
Texas A&M gets the Stripe the Stadium game, which did work well last year, so I hope Auburn isn’t 0-2 at that point and people still feel like doing it.
UL-Monroe and Alabama A&M get the “wear whatever” games because, and let’s be honest, that’s what they deserve.
Back at the top, I’ve seen a few people complain that Auburn asked fans to wear orange for the Clemson game. “We’ll look like Clemson fans! That’s what their fans will be wearing!” Yeah, they might, but guess what, they’ll blend right in and complete the stadium as a sea of orange.
And let’s be clear, Auburn is never doing anything like Clemson. Clemson copies or has copied every thing they’ve ever done from Auburn. And don’t you forget it.
Now you know what to wear. Plan your outfits accordingly. And quit complaining that you don’t look good in orange. We’ve been doing this for over a decade now.
