dude. just cause you're in the same conference with alabama doesn't make you great. you're really good historically, but not great. you are in tier 2. you may not like to hear it, but that's how it is. have a super fun early january not playing football. consider it your personal time to ponder. or troll. i suspect the latter.
No one in Auburn is under investigation right now thank you....try again!
NCAA is not looking for anything on Cam Newton...Please don't tell me you think Adrian Peterson just came because he LOVE OU...
Tell me again why Oklahoma didn't want to join the SEC two years ago?

“When most people say they are being 'realistic,' they delude themselves; they are simply being negative.” —Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
It's not a matter of thinking, it's knowing we are far superior to Auburn, in all sports. By anyones standard, OU is a top 5 football program and Auburn isn't in the top 15, perhaps not in the top 20. We have more national championships, more Heismans, more All Americans, more NFL players, more overall number one selections, etc.
You have Pat Dye, Bo Jackson, and an army of NCAA Investigators. Good night.
Wouldn't coach anywhere near the same conference as Little Brother Mark....
Auburn and Tennessee are both considered steps up by most in the business.......
OU does have good tradition and good money. But any big SEC school is a step up over any other school excluding possibly Texas and USC.
I forgot what SEC division are you in again? I think if Auburn was in the big 12 and only consistently had to beat Texas and Nebraska (Now Big10) to go to any major bowl games we would be up there in trophies and wins too. How does it feel that your conference means nothing anymore?
Wow. Your ignorance of OU football is astonishing.
Auburn's had three Heisman winners; OU's had five winners and five runners-up. Since the year 2000, we've had two of each.
Auburn's won two national titles. OU has seven.
OU's won well over 100 games more in its history than Auburn. OU's won more bowl games than Auburn. OU's had more consensus All-Americans than Auburn. OU's won 33 more conference titles than Auburn.
That's enough compare-and-contrast; it's really embarrassing to try to compare the two programs (though you're right about the stadiums; Auburn's seats 5,000 more people).
Here's more on OU; read it and weep:
ESPN ranked Oklahoma as the most prestigious college football program overall since the advent of the AP Poll in 1936.
Oklahoma has the most 10+ win seasons (34) and 11+ win seasons (20) of any program, as well as the fewest losing seasons (12) of any program.
Oklahoma has been ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll and in the Top 5 more often than any other team.
Oklahoma was given their 10th preseason No. 1 ranking in 2011, another record.
Oklahoma has the most wins and best winning percentage in college football over the last 75 years (1935-current).
Oklahoma is the only school to have four coaches with at least 100 wins each (Stoops, Switzer, Wilkinson, Owen).
Oklahoma has had at least one first team all-conference player in all but one of the 95+ seasons it has played in a conference.
Oklahoma holds the NCAA record for most consecutive victories with 47 straight (1953–1957).
Oklahoma has scored more points than any team in college football history with 31,919 through 2012.
Oklahoma has the most rushing yards in a season with 5,635 in 1971, which was 470 yards per game (12 games)
Oklahoma holds the record for most consecutive 60+ point games, scoring 60 or more points for five straight games in 2008.
Oklahoma holds the record for most lopsided instate rivalry with a record of 83-17-7 (through 2012) over Big 12 Conference opponent Oklahoma State. In fact the rivalry is so lopsided that Oklahoma has shut out Oklahoma State more times (28 - not including 0-0 ties) than Oklahoma State has won against Oklahoma.
Wow, great stats.
Since Oklahoma is so great, Oklahoma should schedule an SEC team each year.
The SEC will be honored to play Oklahoma every year. When can the SEC draft these contracts?
Don't feed the trolls.....
Having said that I'm a what have you done lately for me guy. What was Auburn's record this year.......
Starting in 2014, the BCS tie in bowl will be the Big 12 v. the SEC.
Feeling a little insecure are we? I could manipulate numbers but I don't need to. Ask any objective neutral observer which is a more desirable coaching job and the vast majority would tell you Auburn and it wouldn't even be close.
Oh, and as for National Championships, Auburn has 9. Would be nice if you'd at least get that fact straight.
again, you're lucky you are in the same state and conference as alabama, and that you think the last few years of your life are all that matter. it's cute.
Top 5??? Hah!! Give me a break. You're considered by most in college football as the biggest choke artists. Might even rival UGA. How many BCS bowls have y'all lost? And ugly losses at that. We may be down this year but don't confuse your success in the Little 12 or 9 or 10, hell its impossible to know anymore, with being a SEC success. If OU was in the SEC they would be a 8-4 team consistently. Especially if they were in the West Division. So tell me again how many awards you have? its irrelevant since we don't play anywhere near the same competition. Have a nice night. =)
Very sorry, forgot you all beat the mighty LU/monroe in overtime. that in itself speak volumes of AU football.
I'm not manipulating numbers. I'm laying them out straight. Try to find one fact that I got wrong. Or rather, don't bother. You won't find one.
As for Auburn's national titles, only two are claimed by the University. There are bogus titles OU could claim, too, but we respect the game of college football too much to stoop to that.
Bama pulled this same nonsense a few years back when we beat them two years in a row. They were claiming, I dunno, twenty or thirty titles, including several awarded literally decades after the fact by some flight-by-night organization that only existed for two or three years. For such a proud conference, SEC programs seem to have a very tenuous grasp of college football tradition.
You won't find one legitimate source in the country that will say Auburn has nine titles, and you embarrass yourself to try to make that claim here.

this history you latch onto is that of a 7 year old.
you have fewer:
heisman trophy winners
consensus all americans
unanimous all americans
i can go on.
have a nice holiday season watching others on television. maybe now is the time for petrino. after all, the planets are in line...
also, love your yellawood guy. he's the best!
These Auburn fans are clearly youngsters. They know only what the hype machine on ESPN has taught them. There's no way fans over the age of thirty could be this ill-informed and clueless.
Nebraska, you got be kidding me!!!
Here's the best stat of all: OU kicked the asses of a Top 5 Auburn squad that was led by Pat Sullivan, their first Heisman Trophy winner. The final? 40-22, and it wasn't that close.
So, scoreboard, losers.
