When ashes -- possibly human -- were discovered Monday at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn associate professor Scott McElroy said that sort of thing happens "a lot more than you think."

Second: Just how often is "more than you think"? Either way, when we think about the possibility of being united for all eternity with a stadium and the team that plays there, we're torn between "romantic sentiment worth pursuing" and "very bad idea."
