Auburn is LOST

Being a frequent visitor to such websites as Tigerdroppings, BamaOnline, Tider Insider and Auburngate, I have had a front row seat to all the message board drama that has occurred when it comes to Auburn and all the rumors surrounding their program. I have seen the Alabama insiders come with information and even timelines about how this would all go down. I’ve seen the Auburn fans deny it and mock the insiders as timelines would come and go without the proverbial ‘boom’ ever dropping.

Needless to say, there are believers and there are nonbelievers and they are generally split along fan lines. It struck me recently how similar this message board saga is to one of my favorite storylines from one of my favorite TV shows, LOST. Sadly, LOST is no longer on the air, but that doesn’t mean we can’t relive some of the best moments in the series. Those familiar with the show will obviously have a much deeper appreciation for how these two stories, which are glaringly different in details, mesh so well together. If you are not familiar with the show, do not be dismayed as I feel confident watching the message board drama play out on the big screen will be fully enjoyable for all (yes, even Auburn fans).

Although this will obviously be tilted to the side of the believers (non-Auburn fans), I will take some shots at the Bama insiders and some of the foolishness that has occurred. But please note, it is all meant in good fun.

So without any further adieu, I bring to you Episode 1 of the multipart series “Auburn is LOST”….
