Funny Auburn recruiting fail

Q: What was the craziest or most unusual thing to happen on a recruiting visit?

McDowell: “It was on an unofficial visit when we were at Auburn and we were watching a game. Their eagle went flying around the stadium and hit the field goal post and fell to the ground. And all the Auburn fans were going crazy, and when he hit the field goal post it went dead silent.

Tami McDowell: “You’ve got one job. All you do is fly around the stadium and you run into [the] goalpost?”

McDowell: “When he hit it the feathers came off, and the bird person kind of ran out there. Their eagle just died. I’m here on an unofficial visit and their war eagle just died. They had the recruits sitting right behind the field goal post and we saw it all. I know a feather came flying.”

"That ain't no eagle, son! That's a chicken!"

Being slightly superstitious myself, I wonder if any Auburn recruit in attendance that was on the edge of the fence decided not to go there based on that ominous omen? If it was me, I wouldn't.

That's what Aubbie does to your soul. That poor eagle wanted out of that spiritual waste land so bad, he killed himself. Now he is free.

How long before the Barners say the eagle was poisoned or otherwise tampered with by Bammers?

The war eagle was seen nesting at Toomer's corner, so let the conspiracy begin.
