So I saw the above picture at Auburntron and thought to myself "You know, that's almost kind of understated. If you're going to pimp out a limo in Auburn colors to take to Game Day or on the road to T-Town or Athens or wherever, you might as well just go all the way and have a giant Aubie painted along the top, huge burnt orange and navy blue racing stripes, a hot tub in the very back with Matt Targett doing tiny, tiny laps ... I mean, once you've already invested in an Auburn-themed stretch limo, why hold back?"
Then I found out the answer was "because the limo is being used by Auburn's coaches as a recruiting tool and they don't want to look too 'conspicuous consumption' when they pull up to the home of a kid whose Dad lost his job three weeks ago." I kid you not, this is the info from the Rivals header:
In what is being termed the first annual "Tiger Prowl", seven Tiger coaches, the most a program can have out at one time, will be cruising the state of Alabama this week in a decked-out Auburn limousine.3SiB got in the first of what will surely be many jabs at this cunning plan. Me, I just think it's funny imagining the likes of Gus Malzahn and Phillip Lolley hanging out in the back of this thing with Luper and Troop as they cruise up and down Highway 280 or 43 to Mobile. And hell, if we're sending seven assistants all out together in the same vehicle, might as well let them make an entrance, right? An old Dodge van bought from the local Korean church isn't going to cut it.
That said: oh, the jabs, they are going to be plentiful.
