Tiger Prowl 2010

CAUTION: Auburn post below. Just thought I'd give ya a warning since it's not football season!

OK so a few weeks ago we stopped by on our way to Wednesday night church to check out the Auburn Tiger Prowl bus. It was pretty darn awesome! Our good friends the Stricklands & Nana met us there too. I know it's a ways off from football season but this was a great boost to get our blood pumping for the upcoming season.
Here are the girlies hanging out at the back of the bus under their coach. You know, Coach "Cheezit" or "Chizzy" as my girls call him.

Here's our new basketball coach Tony Barbee. I was impressed by his obvious intelligence and passion for basketball and enthusiasm for being OUR basketball coach. He's got one heck of a new facility to do his job in and can't wait to see what he accomplishes while at AU.

Coach Luper spoke next and was very inspiring and it is obvious why these guys are so good at what they do whether it be recruiting or coaching. They care about family and have certainly adopted the AU family as theirs. They care about those boys they coach and want the AU fans to keep up their support and spirit for the university. No problem there with us.

Here's a shot of Al and the girls walking up to the bus.

And here's Coach Trooper Taylor with all our girls. He's exciting to say the least and such an inspirational speaker. He means what he says and already has a tremendous love and respect for the Auburn family. It was really awesome to be so close to the coaches and feel the excitement and energy they bring to the atmosphere. It's a shame the NCAA put a damper on the whole Tiger Prowl idea as it is such a great idea for promoting and recruiting the university or any university at that matter. I know that other SEC schools have done similar things. Oh well whether we have a bus or not, it won't stop people from being drawn to what is the AUBURN Spirit.

Below is just a snip-it from Coach Trooper's speech explaining a little bit about the AU family you are probably tired of hearing me talk about! He takes the words right out of my mouth....
