The RBR Mail Bag Needs Your Help

Got this in the old inbox last night:

For years, my friends and I (all Tide alumni and/or supporters of course) have wondered about the origin of "Boogs," "Boogereaters," and "Aubs Eat Boogs." These are all true statements, no doubt, but where did the disparaging nicknames come from and why?

I have no idea where they came from either, but I know the terms have been used in the comments on numerous occasions so hopefully some of y'all will be able to help solve this mystery.
