Tyler Union Iron Man Goes Blue and Orange

Tyler Union team members, at least the Auburn fans, couldn’t wait to see the freshly painted Iron Man.

Every year, Iron Man is painted the school colors of the winning team in the Auburn vs. Alabama football game and he remains that color 365 days until the next game.  The Auburn/Alabama rivalry is considered one of the most heated football rivalries in college football.  Together Alabama and Auburn account for 33 SEC titles and the two teams won an impressive four straight BCS National Championship Games from 2009-2012 (Alabama-2009, 2011, 2012 and Auburn 2010).

The Iron Man tradition was started by team members as way to celebrate their team’s victory and “gloat” a little all year long.  Alabama fans will just have to glance the other way when they get to work every day because those Auburn colors are here to stay, at least until the next game.

Congratulations Auburn fans – War Eagle!
