From the desk of Gene Chizik, to the Auburn student body:
Subject: Keep Jordan-Hare Stadium Rocking!
Dear Auburn Students,
No place rocks like Jordan-Hare Stadium. I know that and you know that, but others are taking notice. Here’s what Chris Low of ESPN.com said about Jordan-Hare earlier this week:
“There are a lot of places that rock around the SEC, and there are a lot of places around this conference that hold noise and make you feel like your ear drums are about to explode. But it’s that way from the opening kickoff at Auburn and only picks up steam from there. I’ve been to just about all the stadiums in the league the last few years, and I say with confidence that Jordan-Hare Stadium is as consistently loud and electric throughout the game as any stadium I’ve been to, and I think it’s gotten even more intense this season.”
I could not have said it any better myself. When I asked you to go “All In” earlier this season, you answered the challenge. I’m asking you to bring it even louder and stronger this Saturday as we host the LSU Tigers. It will be the toughest test we have faced all season, and the stakes could not be higher.
Student gates will open 45 minutes earlier than normal, starting at 11:45 a.m. So come early, be loud and stay late! You are the best student section in the country, and I can’t tell you how much your support means to our players. Thanks again for making Jordan-Hare Stadium the loudest and most electric stadium in the country. Keep it up!
See you Saturday.
