The time has come for Alabama & Auburn to renew the greatest rivalry in collegiate sports. No other duel divides a state so drastically as the Tide & the Tigers. Nowhere do you split trailers down the middle during the week leading to the game and nowhere else does gunfire ring so true after a loss.
An embarassing loss has dimmed any SECCG hopes for the Tigers. Why does Tubs have to run his mouth so much. If Auburn had taken care of their own business, then everything would have worked itself out. And why does Tubs need an extra week off to get ready to watch the SECCG? He apparently cannot coach himself into it.
Tubs = 9 win coach.....the last 5 times Auburn had a chance to win their 10th game, they are 1-4. It seems that we have a coach who is all ears but can't seal the deal. In 2004, Cadillac, Ronny, Jason, & co. blew away thUGA for their 10th victory and did not slow down. That is the exception to the rule. They were talented enough to overcome their coach.
Saturday...as you may be able to tell, I am definitely down on Tubs. He has a chance to redeem himself this weekend in a stadium he historically owns. Can the Tigers pull together to beat the Bambi's?
Auburn has to hit JPW early and often to have a chance. There is no way the Tigers can allow JPW to sit back and find a reciever streaking across the secondary. Perfect example, last night Pitt's Tyler Palko was on fire in the first half and then WV made adjustments and came after him in the 2nd. Result, short throws to get rid of the ball and recivers were not far enough downfield to make first downs. Muschump, how easy is that? You have not blitzed in ages so buck up and do it.
Tigers pull out a close one..........19-16 and push the spread!!!!
Game of the Century part XXII...we have one every few years. Florida State/Notre Dame, Nebraska/Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain, and now Michigan/Ohio State.
Ohio State 24-14. No rematch.
Ohio State plays USC in Glendale unless Florida wins out and somehow jumps them in the human polls.
Ladies, it has been a tough week in Atlanta but this weekend could be redemption.
For once this season, please let us know your picks as you did last year. Slackers!!!
Peace out from the Big Peach,
