When the Stebbins are away, Auburn can play!

In 2004, Ryan deployed for the first (and hopefully only) time in our marriage.  While it was very tough on us both, one thing that made it a little easier for me was that my Auburn Tigers went undefeated and nearly played for the national title.  As only other lifelong Auburn fans know, these seasons don't come along very often, and when they do, they are just so much fun. Of course it wasn't so much fun for Ryan-who I must say has turned into an even more devoted fan than I am.  We would make the joke that whenever he was out of the country, Auburn wouldn't lose.

Well, it's 2010 and we find ourselves unexpectedly out of the country.  And at the end of the regular season, Auburn finds itself sitting at 12-0 and #1 in the BCS rankings.  Could the two be related?  You be the judge!

Way to go Auburn Tigers-and a big War Eagle from Turkey to you all!!


  1. It is totally because of y'all! Hope you like living internationally! :) JK- We'd rather have you back than an undefeated season! Hope you are feeling better!

  2. Is there a "like" button on this thing? War Eagle! Hopefully, the next time we go undefeated, both of you can be in the country to enjoy it!!
