The middle finger and the Iron Bowl

Auburn defensive end Nosa Eguae is poised to have a breakout season in 2011 on the field.

Off the field, he's already running a close race with Ole Miss defensive end Kentrell Lockett as being the best interview in the SEC.

Eguae, a third-year sophomore, is extremely intelligent and equally witty. Ask him about anything, and he always has something interesting to say. He doesn't hold back, either, which is why nobody should have been surprised by his response earlier this week when asked what he remembered most about the bus ride through Alabama's campus to Bryant-Denny Stadium for the Iron Bowl last year.

Wearing a large grin, Eguae cracked, "Just some fingers that weren't supposed to be used by some very little kids and some old women."

It's a rivalry that never sleeps.
