If you’re from the Southeast in the U.S. and you follow college football, chances are you’ve heard of “Tammy” from “The Paul Finebaum Show.”

A passionate Auburn Tigers fan, Tammy has been a daily caller to Finebaum’s show for years. She served as a mainstay on the show as both its audience and platform continued to grow. (RELATED: Is Urban Meyer Done At Ohio State? At Least One College Football Expert Thinks So)

On Friday morning, Tammy Bullard was pronounced dead after a tragic accident took place on U.S. 280 in Birmingham, Alabama. Bullard was 52 years old. Her 3-year-old granddaughter was also in the car and passed away just before 8 a.m. on the morning of Nov. 16.


A Clanton, Alabama native, Bullard’s feisty yet endearing support for the Tigers’ football program has always been one of the most unique and authentic features of Finebaum’s show. On Friday, Finebaum dedicated the final hour of his show exclusively to her.

Auburn star linebacker Deshaun Davis dedicated his final home game in Jordan Hare Stadium to Bullard, a game her beloved Tigers won 53-0.

The thoughts and prayers of everybody at The Smoke Room are with Bullard’s family.

May her memory be a blessing.
