Given Auburn's team is the Tigers......why do they have the Go War Eagle battle cry?   I have talked to people who work at the school and have no clue

I asked a big Auburn fan this and he told me they released an eagle during one of the world wars before a game and that became a fixture.

Look it up. There are several theories. It's kind of clouded in mystique.

They should have changed their mascot years ago. They already have Tigers in the SEC and War Eagle is a he'll of a name.
