The apology was just as weak as the article. An apology laden with excuses is no apology. Try this sample apology - Dear Faithful readers of THE PLAINSMAN: In the Thursday, Dec. 5, issue of The Plainsman, the editorial board published an editorial titled “Bammers are in a class of their own.” It was not our intention to insult the entire Alabama fanbase, although it is glaringly obvious that we did exactly that. We also succeeded in embarrassing our University, and reducing any semblance of journalistic respect we may have earned to a smoldering ruin. Our editorial was meant as a satirical piece that addressed the extremist fans we referred to as “Bammers.” We sincerely apologize that as Journalism Majors at Auburn University we should have been aware that satire does not belong in the editorial section of a newspaper. We further apologize to our parents for wasting their tuition check on beer and video games. Lastly, we apologize without excuse, period. We further vow to review our understanding of the phrase "commitment to journalistic standards of integrity", and will use the phrase appropriately in complete coherent sentence as evidence of our commitment to grow up.

Congrats to the Auburn Tigers football team on winning the SEC Championship, now onward to Pasadena and keep the crystal in Alabama. RTR.

Your excellent editorial should be printed in every paper in the Southeastern Conference. It's great that you put the true story in print and everyone appreciates your comments. Except Bammers. Thanks.

Dang spell check, Daddy - may you rest in PEACE! Though the typo most likely made ya laugh.

Most people do understand it, they're just not fans of poorly written satire that is actually a passive-aggressive attempt to compensate for a HUGE (and deserved) inferiority complex. Just to be clear, I'm not using satire, I'm using insults to express my opinion of the "journalism" demonstrated by "The Auburn Plainsman".

I'm an Alabama fan who was raised by my Daddy (may he rest in piece ) to support Auburn when they aren't playing Bama. Likewise, support SEC teams. I realize that makes me different from this generation of "rabid" fans, which obviously include the students who write for the Auburn student newspaper. The Auburn football team may be playing for the SEC Championship due to unbelievably lucky plays on the football field and God bless 'em for taking advantage of those opportunities. But the Auburn student newspaper IS NOT READY FOR PRIMETIME ! I'll still be pulling for Auburn over Missouri. I'll be holding my breath during the Ohio State/Michigan State game in the hope the SEC will have another shot at continuing our historic run of winning BCS Championships. And I'll even entertain a tiny spark of anticipation that the Fightin'' Blue Devils perform a true miracle (I'm calling on y'all - Bear and Shug) which blows up the BCS in it's last year with an Iron Bowl rematch. If that infinitesimal improbability happens, I WILL NOT be pulling for Auburn, I will EXPECT Alabama to win and that doesn't make me a Bammer; it makes me what the majority of Alabamians are - a Crimson Tide FAN. ROLL TIDE ! Sincerely, Connie Lawrence Goggins Montevallo, Alabama

Some folks just don't understand satire.

I commend Auburn fans that find this offensive. Every university has someone that has an "Updyke-ish" rabid fan nature in them. I believe you have found yours. Good luck tomorrow. Cheers!

As an Auburn alum, I am embarrassed by this goofy column.
