How can Auburn be a top 10 team and bammer isn't even ranked in one of the polls????
Check out these star rankings for all you star gazers...
Auburn Offense 1st team = 2.8 star average per position
bammer offense 1st team = 3.45 star average per position
Auburn Offense 2nd team = 3.60 star average per position
bammer offense 2nd team = 3.45 star average again per position
Auburn 2 deep offense = 3.27 stars per position
bammer 2 deep offense = 3.45 stars per position
Now lets take a look at the defenses...
Auburn 1st team defense = 3.27 stars per position
bammer 1st team defense = 3.27 stars per position (push)
Auburn 2nd team defense = 3.00 stars per position
bammer 2nd team defense = 3.54 stars per position
Now for a look at the total star average for the 1st team, 2nd team, and the total 2 deep at both schools. O&D is offense and defense...
Auburn 1st team O&D = 3.03 stars per position
bammer 1st team O&D = 3.36 stars per position
Auburn 2nd team O&D = 3.30 stars per position
bammer 2nd team O&D = 3.50 stars per position
Auburn total 2 deep O&D = 3.16 stars per position
bammer total 2 deep O&D = 3.43 stars per position
Now I know you bammers like to cry about probation and any other excuse you can think of. What about the upper classmen on each team or the freshmen playing? Let's take a look.
Auburn's 2 deep breaks down like this per class...
FRHS = 4
RFR = 1
SO = 17
JR = 12
SR = 10
Now let's look at good ole bammer...
FRHS = 9
FRRS = 1
SO = 9
JR = 17
SR = 8
Auburn has 22 JRs and SRs while ole bammer has 25. So how can a team that is so much better on paper suck so bad? Bama has more experience and a much higher star ranking on their 2 deep. Why are they ranked so low and not even ranked in one poll? If I was Saban, I would sure hang my hat on this season. There is no excuse for him to not win now. It could get ugly if he doesn't produce with all the talent he has on his team. If you believe in stars that is....
