Spirit and Support: Auburn Family, All In

"I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work." - from The Auburn Creed
This week's BCS ranking came out a few hours ago.  The commentators on ESPN were all agreed that Auburn should be #2 this week, given the performance of the Oregon Ducks yesterday against USC. A couple of the guys pointed out that Auburn's inconsistency in play has them doubting the overall quality of the Tigers and whether Auburn can win out in its remaining games.  They did point out though that Auburn is in control of its BCS destiny and if the Tigers continue to win, an invitation to the national championship game is ours.

When the official rankings were unveiled, Auburn had indeed slipped to #2.

The Tigers will need to get down to business again this week and continue their improvements ...
... I believe in work, hard work ...
... because the sports writers and coaches on other teams will not give Auburn anything they haven't fought for and deserve ...
... this is a practical world and I can count only on what I earn.
I imagine that Gene Chizik and the rest of the coaching staff are reminding the Tigers of these important points from The Auburn Creed.

I believe that the Tigers will continue their efforts and will do what it takes to win.

And we fans will continue to lift our Tigers with an outpouring of spirit and unwavering support.

We are Auburn Family and We are All In.
