  1. Hey Beaver I was wondering if you have heard anything about the song for the intro video from anybody that has actual seen it. I've heard rumors about it being "Family Reunion" by Saliva and I am praying to God that it isn't, but just wondering if you've heard any news.

  2. I have heard those rumors but I know that the guy who does it keeps it very quiet and it is unlikely that the song could have leaked out...meanwhile that song does seem to be a reasonable choice considering Auburn's "family" theme and it playing off of the previous song...IMO

  3. yea, I have no problem with the message of the song, IMO it is just to monotone and very slow paced.

  5. very true. I would love to seem them do something with the Crazy Train/Let's Go by Lil' Jon remix for the sheer reason you can tell that song really pumps up the players.

  6. Not a big fan of calling J-H, "The Jungle" but if we're sticking with that, I think GnR's Welcome to the Jungle should be the intro song.
