RIP. She has her own War Damn Eagle wings now.

RIP, Tammy and her granddaughter. 

I’m sure Paul will pay tribute in a good way.

Tragically I may add. A 18 wheeler roll over. Carry some type of hazardous material. Man you just never know, hug your loved ones daily.

Heartbreaking, I truly hope they didn't suffer. Years ago my moms boyfriend was driving on 70 and a hub cap from an 18 wheeler flew off and crashed through his windshield striking him in the head and killing him. Driving is an incredibly dangerous task that we all to often take for granted.

And her 3 year old granddaughter. A real shame.

How sad, Tammy was a Finebaum show legend.

Sad news. I listened to her and Paul banter for several years. Always enjoyed her.

RIP Tammy and her granddaughter.

Finebaum literally made his name on callers like Phyllis and Tammy. He should make a nice donation.

Wow. I always thought Phyllis would go first.

That's who I thought of first. Phyllis from Mulga.

So sad. At the end of it we fans are a big family with arguements, our feuds, and our connections through the sport we love to follow. RIP, Tammy and your granddaughter. Prayers for the family.

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

May she rest in peace.

That is a bummer. Not a great way to go, either. War Eagle, Tammy; just for this one day.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

When I did watch Finebaum's show, it was NOT for accurate or balanced sports reporting. I watched to hear people like Tammy going all out with passion for their teams. The callers are the true stars of that show. RIP Tammy, for you and your granddaughter. Such a shame for their family. May God bless them all.

She was great, I could picture her screaming into her flip top Nextel phone @ Pawl, funny thing is her mother and husband were Bama fans. I'm sure they had some interesting Sunday dinners, lol. The world is awesome because of all its characters.

I didn't know her husband and mother were Bama fans. I missed that part but she was passionate and entertaining.  Yeah, real good times at her house during the Iron Bowl. I agree, the world has some mighty interesting inhabitants.

Indeed, Sunny Buck.  Well said.

It's tragic and heartbreaking enough for someone who's at least had a chance to live, dies suddenly. But when young children who havent even begun to scratch life's surface are taken away it makes me question life and why down to my core.

I can't. I just can't.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I’ve been to several Auburn games with a friend who’s an alumnus and I can say, without reservation, that Tammy represented the full spectrum of their fan base, in a good way.  She was a character and, more importantly, a grandmother.  RIP Tammy and your little granddaughter.  Prayers to your family and War Eagle.

If there is a gofund for them I would definitely throw a 20 their way
