The Auburn Tigers are the team name for Auburn University, located in Auburn, Alabama right next to the Georgia border in east-central Alabama. The name of the town, "Auburn," and the nickname "Tigers" both come from Oliver Goldsmith's poem, "The Deserted Village," published in May 1770, "Sweet Auburn! Loveliest village of the plain (line 1)... where crouching tigers wait their hapless prey (line 355)". The Auburn Tigers are generally known for their football team and eternal little brother syndrome. They are a part of the Southeastern Conference.
Auburn's mascot is Aubie. Aubie is a costumed tiger that has been Auburn's mascot since 1979. Aubie first appeared as a cartoon tiger drawn by Birmingham Post-Herald artist Phil Neel on Auburn's gameday football program on October 3, 1959. He appeared on most Auburn program covers from the late 50's until the mid-'70s. His first live appearance was at the 1979 Southeastern Conference basketball tournament. He helped lead first-year coach Sonny Smith to an upset victory over Vanderbilt. He then returned the following day for the longest game in SEC basketball tournament history against Georgia. That game went 4 overtimes and ended in an Auburn victory.
Aubie has national championships for the #1 College Mascot during the following years: 1991, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2003

Auburn's football team played their first game in 1892 against the Georgia Bulldogs. This game set up the South's Oldest Rivalry. Auburn's home games are played in Jordan-Hare Stadium which seats 87,451 people.
Auburn has won at least half the number of national championships that Alabama actually has, but only gets credit for one half of one in 1957. Auburn fans claim a conspiracy by anyone that gets more or less respect than them. Auburn has also won 7 SEC titles in the years 1957, 1983, 1987, 1988, 1989, 2004 and 2010. Since 1980, Auburn has averaged over 8 wins a season and appeared in 18 bowl games. They've also been on NCAA probation at least 100 times.
Is something that people don't go to unless the team is playing Alabama or ranked in the top 15. The Auburn University basketball team currently plays in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum but will play in 2011 at Auburn Arena, a new facility that Coach Jeff Lebo could have played in, but he was so bad that even Auburn (who really doesn't care about basketball) couldn't stand him anymore. Auburn's new coach is Tony Barbee.
Remember this quote from Charles Barkley-
"As long as I was leading the SEC in rebounds, I knew I didn't have to worry about passing classes at Auburn."
