    Re: Auburn preview: Bama wants to channel memories of 2011, not 2009

    We are talking about Auburn here right? Winless in the SEC...Auburn?

    Not a very physical 10-2 LSU team at Tiger Stadium. Or a very good Heisman candidate, QB, where we had a good defensive second half against and had a chance to win the game. Not to mention an undefeated team on the road.

    Just checking.

    My gut tells me we smash auburn. But history has proven me wrong enough times that I dang sure ain't guaranteeing anything. College football is so unpredictable. Who would have thought a 4-5 Baylor would have blown out K State in their own backyard? Strange things happen at the end of every college season. I'm just hoping the Iron Bowl tomorrow isn't one of them.

    Biggest difference, Baylor is #2 in total offense....Auburn is #112. You can't make an excuse for those numbers as just stats.

    The game has to still be played is the overriding point. Odds are we'll kill auburn. But as posted above, I doubt just rolling our helmets out there is going to do it. The unexpected is always in play in late season games. I've watched too much college football to think otherwise. Will it in this game? I don't know and I hope not. I hope the game goes as the point spread indicates. But it would not shock me one bit if the game was much closer than many think.

    Yeah we will definitely not be able to just come out on the field and have them lay down. I don't care what the score is, I just want our guys healthy for next week and a win.

    I am also not one that is predicting in the 40-50's I still think we stay in the 35 point range...but that is a blowout to me.

    And Baylor was 120th in total defense.

    Well, if we let a true freshman QB who's only in his 4th start, and who was shut out by Georgia at home, give us a game than that doesn't say much about us. Thankfully, the chances of that happening should be about the same as Gene Chizik getting a raise this year.

    I don't think we cover the 34 but there's no way I see us winning by an less than 17. Auburn has not showed me anything (sans LSU at home early) that they are capable of playing any decent team close. You can't ignore that. If I'm wrong, so be it.

    K State learned heavy is the crown that night. Baylor played extremely well but K State also had helped them with a major choke job. I don't see 'Bama choking under the pressure or the Barn rising to the occasion after laying on the mat all year.

    My hope is we come out like we did in the last game and go up 21+ points in the first quarter. This will demoralize the boogers! But we should not let up at that point. Our team (2nd stringers, etc.) should get playing time but should play their best to finish off the boogers!

    What keeps me a bit "cautious" I guess is the LSU game. For the first 8 games their offense looked god-awful. Mettenberger looked lost, couldn't do anything right, and looked like a total bust. There was nothing about their play through the first eight games that would indicate ANY progress or threat to us going into our game. Then came our game. How ever they did it, when they stepped foot on the field with us everything that they couldn't do for the first eight games (on offense) they all of a sudden could do against us. It was one of the most amazing transformation of an offense I've ever seen in a two week time frame. Auburn hasn't done jack squat all year long. They played their best game against LSU early in the year. I expect a similar effort tomorrow. It just seems for Alabama we get struggling teams best performances of the year. I expect no different tomorrow.

    I respect every opponent...I really do, but this Auburn unit would need to play with intensity (which I think they will try to do so). The thing is that intensity will really only keep them in the first 15 minutes...after that it settles down into a game of execution which I don't think Auburn can do over 60 minutes
