All I know is my barner hubby is usually crowing and going on and on this time of year about how good AU is going to be. He's grown more and more quiet as the final weeks of summer have rolled by. I almost feel sorry for him. Almost.

AU will find a way to win games they aren't supposed to, it is in their nature. Like last year, they had no business beating USCe in Columbia and still they found a way. I don't think they'll be 4-8 but if they lose some games early it could start a free fall. Looking at their schedule now...oh...hmmmm...Clemson, Miss St, Ark and LSU in their first 5 games? I'm gonna say 6-6 or 7-5.

I agree 100% with ya GCT..It's obvious the auburn football program is slowly self destructing before our very eyes..It's a train wreck(in slow motion) going on in Lee County..They're "reaping what they sow"..When the sold their souls buying sCam Newton..I hope it was worth it Barners..
Both sides of the ball are ill-manned to run the system they're switching to. I'm sure many of their guys have bulked up this off-season and they do have some quality players, but they'll likely look like a less-talented 2011 Florida this season - too small to play the game they're trying to play.

DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. ©2009-2014, crimsonaudio
CGC is still trying to get some more mileage off of 2010. Even he has to realize that that season is old news now. $cam matters not one bit in the world of college football anymore. But, cheese probably thinks that he will catch lightening in a bottle again one day. And until that day, now matter how bad things get, he will have 2010 as a nice little fall back. This saga is about to get even more interesting.
When my grandma left this life, I didn't say bye. I said see you later.
RIP, Grandma. Forever in my heart.
