    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    The 1958 game that Auburn won 40-0, running up the score gleefully against a really rotten, winless Alabama team led by a pitiful old coach who had already been fired....

    That was the game that decided me to go to Alabama and made me for all eternity hate all things Auburn.

    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    Several contenders:
    --"I waxed the dude" was there as a student. Loved it!

    --85 - Was in grad(ual) school @ UA, & thus sitting in the student section. Just incredible.

    --The next year (I believe...can't recall dates so well any more...) when Bo ran all over us for nearly 300 yards. I know; we lost. But that remains the single greatest game performance I've seen live & in person.

    --The honk-if-you've-sacked-Brodie game in BDS. Again, I know; we lost. But my son & I scored tix to that when he was in HS & we went. Had a blast despite the outcome.

    Those are my faves that I saw live & in person. My fave tv game would be the 36-0 game; total domination. Got a hunch this year's may jump up near the top of the list...

    (dis-honorable mention: punt-Bama-punt game. I was in jr. high; our HC/A.D. was A.C. Langner...whose son David scored the two TDs. I'll give everyone ONE guess who our guest speaker was @ the athletic banquet the next Spring...and what highlights we saw broken down in great detail that night. My Dad was somewhat chapped about it, as was I.)

    '63, I believe you're off by a year. It was 1957 they curb-stomped us. 1958 the score was 8-14, University of Auburn.

    Re: What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    Most memorable is the Punt Bama Punt Game. I caught more grief over that game than any in history.

    My most memorable favorite personally is the last drive against AU in 09. "The Kick" was cool but we weren't very good and I'm not into celebrating upset wins over Auburn.

    2001 because we completely dominated them in Auburn, and because it was my birthday. After that, the 2008 game for obvious reasons.

    1985 for the drama and excitement, 2008 for the long exhale.

    That's mine also, but it wasn't 1958; it was 1957. I was a freshman at the time. It was also the coldest football game I've ever attended. My blanket didn't help. I left midway of the 4th quarter, but I couldn't get warm even down in the parking lot...

    I have been to many, but "The Kick" in 1985 is the first one that comes to mind.

    The 1994 Iron Bowl has been my favorite that I've actually been old enough to witness. There are sheets of paper wider than the amount in which we stopped Frank Sanders on that fourth down play late in the fourth. We should've won going away, but turnovers kept also undefeated Auburn in the game until we finally put it away. One of the most exciting first halves in Alabama history.

    What was your most memorable Alabama vs. Auburn game?

    I see a lot of references to the 1996 game. One of my faves as well. I was close to the end zone where Riddle scored. Crowd was just deafening.

    I also REALLY enjoyed the 94' game. It was an exciting game, the one that ended with Bama taking a knee after the barn came up millimeters short on a last-ditch fourth down attempt. But the BEST part was my barner brother in law storming out of the stadium and making an absolute jerk of himself on the way home.

    Sadly, 2010.

    1996 is a close second.

    I loved the '85 game and "The Kick" is probably my favorite Bama memory. I was the '98 game and it was awesoms too. Down 17-0 at halftime and I had no confidence that Dubose could come back. 2nd half turned into the Shaun Alexander Show and we won 34-17. Good times.

    We got down 17-0 in the 1st quarter. We only tailed 17-14 at the half.
