In great Daily Football Fix tradition, Jessica welcome in the new month of October. Fall is truly here. NASCAR chase & baseball playoffs are upon us. Football is in full swing as basketball and hockey start gearing up.
Smoke wins in the cornfields. Nice to see Tony get a W. I am looking forward to seeing him at Talladega next weekend.
Soft coverage, poor tackling and lack of pressure on Auburn's defense go against the defensive philosophy. Spurrier's best shot didn't help either. Auburn weathered the storm and heads into the heart of the SEC. I expect the Tigers to attack MM & Co. I would love to see McFadden held to 50 yards and have. 5 sacks would be great against the high school OC. The line has already jumped from 14.5 to 17 in favor of the Tigers. The Nutt always plays Tubs tough.
Tim Duckworth moves like he is 200 lbs. Kenny Irons needs to keep his legs churning. Courtney Taylor must improve his body control and keep his feet.
It was a tough weekend for USC against a Washington State team that the Tiger tattoed on opening night. The Cougs have improved since they faced the Tigers and took the Trojans to the wire. This preserved Auburn's standing on the AP and closed ground in the Coaches poll pulling in one first place vote in each poll to USC's nil.
John Parker Wilson looks like a first year starter as pressure forces sloppy footwork and consequently high throws. His 3 picks could have been 5 as he only produced two field goal drives on offense. The Gators had more athletes and playmakers and eventually pulled away. Chris Tebow & Co. have already moved from a pick to UF @ minus one when LSU visits this weekend. This may be a showdown of the two most athletic & talented teams in the SEC and should be good football.
Rocky Top wore out Tommy West in the Tennesee showdown this weekend. Next the Great Pumpkin invades Athens. This line has moved from a pick to the Vols by two. I could see a field goal deciding against Georgia. CMR has a suspect offensive line, ineffective recievers and question at QB. Richt thanks heaven for his defense every night.
I will be taking a mid season break from picks to break the horrid streak that was the past weekend against the spread. I am a king at straight up. The Dr. will be filling the void in my stead. Wilbur Picks shall rise again.
2 tickets for Arkansas available, please let me know if you know anyone who wants them.
Ladies & Gents, open Monday. Thoughts and takes on the weekend.
