The Iron Bowl. One of the greatest spectacles in all of sports. Out in the Peach last night, optimism was mixed with the shear terror of the Tigers not showing up. Alabama is willing and ready to turn the Tide. Auburn cannot allow LaRonthug McClain to ever win against the Tigers. It is that simple, he must carry Iron Bowl L's the rest of his natural life and throughout eternity.
Keys to the Game
After the emotion wears off, Auburn is a more talented and usually better coached team. I pray they pull away but it is hard to see happening. If Joe Cope is playing on his torn ACL and playing like he is hurt, he must have a short leash in favor of Jason Bosley. He was absolutely manhandled last weekend and it can't happen today. 12 needs to have a big game and cannot hang onto the ball and take needless hits. Cox is "FRAGILE HANDLE WITH CARE" at best.
Hit JPW, hit JP, hit 14, hit pretty boy, hit boy wonder, hit JP, hit JPW, hit 14. If Auburn gets the best of the Alabama offensive line and visits JP, they win. Period. Bama recievers will be running free all day so they must get to 14 before he can rifle through the Tiger secondary. Lil Will & Tubs must concieve a terrific pressure gameplan and execute.
Kodi Bliss, I hope Auburn does not have to punt but we need a few boomers. Whaddya say. there, Tiger?
How about Little Bo in the slot?
Michigan @ Ohio State
Bo went to the gridiron heavens yesterday. The emotion swirling around the Wolverines right now could be channelled into a game for the ages. How will they use it? Self destructive or victory?
Two of the best D's in the country. Auburn's D is probably twenty pounds lighter in the front 7 man vs. man than either of these Big Tenners, just as fast though.
