Class of 1978

Dave Cody ,Fox Sports,FSN Southwest, Austin,Texas,known as Magnet to my Sigma Nu brothers.
Glad Austin High receiver Emory Blake is going to Auburn. He is a very nice and talented kid who is the son of former NFL quarterback Jeff Blake who works for Triton Financial. Emory couldn’t wait to wear his Auburn “gear” at his signing in February.
Great to have seen Brother Lee Perrett again at last summer’s national chapter convention in Austin. He sent his son to Texas
continuing a trend that started with Gene Chizik and Will Muschamp.
Recently I emceed an event honoring Richard Quick the Auburn swim coach and former Texas women’s coach who is fighting an inoperable brain tumor. I have known Richard since I worked as a lifeguard at the old 25 yard Auburn indoor pool and he was Eddie Reese’s assistant and we played in a golf outing while I was a TV sportscaster in Huntsville. Please keep Richard in your thoughts and prayers. I lost two of my favorite brothers in the past year Dave Poundstone and Ed Wadley(former roomate after college) along with my only pledge brother Paul Saia the year before.

War Eagle and Hook ‘Em Horns,
Dave Cody Beta Theta 1699

Funniest Memory: Amidst the Paris Peace Talks over the Viet Nam War, Auburn became known for what turned out to be quite a diversion from the worries of the world. The ancient tradition of panty raids was displaced temporarily by the 1970’s fad of campus streaking. Streaking was supposedly invented at Auburn. One of the Glomeratas documents the the way it was at Auburn in or around 1971. As I recall, our chapter did have member(s) who contributed to the phenomenon. The fad spread across the nation before fading out. Streaking even made for one of the more memorable (forgetable) scenes in the recent movie “”Old School””.
