Auburn trolls Georgia by bringing back Nick Fairley as honorary captain
Did Auburn intentionally troll Georgia on Saturday when it brought back former defensive tackle Nick Fairley?
Fairley, who played for Auburn in 2009 and 2010, was an honorary captain and mic man for the Tigers before they hosted the top-ranked Bulldogs.
Most Georgia fans do not like Fairley, mainly because of the time he allegedly tried to cripple former ‘Dawgs quarterback Aaron Murray.
Fairley had a questionable hit on Murray’s shin when the teams played in 2010. It left the former Bulldog QB injured, as pointed out by Alex Scarborough of ESPN in a tweet.
Fairley’s dirty hit nearly caused a brawl between the two teams.
Whether or not Auburn meant to troll Georgia with this gesture, it certainly got the job done.
Now that’s a solid troll job. Auburn brings back Nick Fairley for the Georgia game. Fairly had a questionable hit that injured Aaron Murray when the two teams played in 2010. https://t.co/fAQgifQ2pc
