IMAGE: Auburn Wearing Blue Helmets And Pants Against Clemson?

Auburn coach Gene Chizik may or may not have been filmed urging Plainseagles to expect head-to-toe blue Saturday against Clemson. Track Em Tigers says the "message boards are buzzing" about the rumored blue-out, which conjures both Tobias Funke jokes and blowout puns. The latter may be useful since they're playing the last ACC school on earth.

The Eaglemen may be doing this because they're playing Clemson, and are hoping to make their fellow orange-and-cool-tone Tigers feel at home by acting Clemsonly and randomizing every color of every piece of their uniforms after every series.

This is Atlanta-relevant because Clemson and Auburn both play within 100 miles or so of our fair city, neither have SB Nation regional sites of their own, both have rivalries flourishing or dormant with both of our FBS teams, and they played each other in Atlanta's bowl game only two years ago.

Also, Georgia fans may have some advice for our Wartiger neighbors regarding the practice of helmet-darkening.
