War Eagle is the "battle cry" for Auburn University, where I am working on my graduate studies. I confess that I don't really understand it myself. The mascot here is a Tiger, but for some reason people shout "Waaaaaar Eagle" at sporting events, etc. The reply is "HEY!"
Now I don't know how all of this got started, but my favorite legend has something to do with a civil war veteran who nursed an eagle back to health, and later the eagle soared over the football field, encouraging the team to victory. Ridiculous rubbish, but entertaining.
