Podcast #6: Iron Bowls, Speeches, Books, and Thanksgiving with Pat Dye

When I think of Iron Bowls, I think of Pat Dye. I think of him getting choked up on the sideline after beating Alabama in 1982, I think of “wrassling with them angels,” and I think of winning.

With it being Iron Bowl week, I took a shot in the dark and it worked. Coach Pat Dye agreed to be on the Podcast. And when things weren’t working out with our schedules, he agreed to record it on Thanksgiving morning. I am thankful for Pat Dye.


In the podcast, we discuss his locker room speeches, his biggest Iron Bowls, the 2013 Iron Bowl, and his upcoming book After the Arena (available early December 2013 – a follow-up to his first book In the Arena). He also discusses the job Gus Malzahn has done and may have given a hint about Auburn’s plans to claim rightful championships. I am thankful for Pat Dye.
