The Path of the Tiger

By J.M. Comer

Today’s column is inspired by the “Lone Wolf and Cub” manga series. And the Wu.


“Tiger style! Yo, huh, huh.
Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuttin Ta F___ Wit! …

I be tossin, enforcin, my style is awesome
I’m causin more Family Feud’s than Richard Dawson …

Seek the China Sea, I slam tracks like quarterbacks sacks from L.T. …”

Why does Auburn fight like the [weasel, monkey, praying mantis, crab, what? it ain’t Tiger-like this year that’s for sure] and not like our namesake?

Where is our Tiger Style, yo?


Your Tiger Style should never waver Auburn warriors! Your inner warrior walks beside you always, even when you attend the North Alabama Renaissance Festival.

“The tiger has no natural predators and, therefore, knows no fear. He is unpredictable and quick to anger, and when attacking is sudden and brutal. The attitude is that of fearlessness, and fierceness. Mentally, one must cultivate an attitude of indestructibility, courage, and disdain for discomfort. Greet obstacles with delight for giving you the chance to exercise your powers.”

Be mindful Auburn Tigers. Be mindful Auburn Tiger fans.

Cultivate the way of the forest warrior. Silence. Stealth. Relentless power.

Power running. Quick strikes to catch your unbalanced opponent. Attack on defense, but be like the reed in the hurricane and not like the mighty oak, bend to the gusts but do not break.

Enjoy the nine days that lie before you. Take the time to study your enemy. Do not fear the Crimson Tide.

Stealth in green grasses. Silent. Spring. Attack the elephant and its rider.
