The second in the IPJ series is a candid of Shug sipping the literal Coca-Cola of Victory in the locker room after Auburn’s 17-13 win over Georgia. A young David Housel reports from the blur. The year is 1974, a season nostalgically neglected by many Auburn folks. The Tigers went 10-2, losing to Florida and Alabama. Their loss to Bama hinged on a highly questionable negation of a Gargis to Gossom touchdown pass. An investigation into that call would soon lead to an NCAA rules change. The ’74 team would go on to thrash an unsuspecting Texas in the Gator Bowl.
