    Re: Needing to be talked off the ledge here! (he's scared of auburn)

    I share some of the concerns, based on Auburn's ability to run, and some vulnerability to the inside run.

    The coaches have two weeks to find a resolution. If they don't, the game will be more of a scoring race than we would like. And we may lose - but not in a blowout like Georgia. I think Vegas probably has it right, Bama is still the favorite, but the odds have shortened.

    Should I conclude none of you all watched the LSU game then?

    Because LSU pushed us around more than MSU did - on both sides of the ball.


    You're correct we have some concerns to address as well as the fact that statistics are a window but not a taskmaster.

    By the same token, I didn't see MSU firing off 600 yards against us as happened in the 2013 ATM game, either.

    Stop this nonsense! I guarantee that behind all the Aubarn bravado they are a lot more concerned about us than we are about them.
    We have better talent overall, better field general, better coaching, better program, more fans by a mile and a defense tailor made for their offense. And obviously sportswriters and coaches throughout the country think we are a better team.

    Why all the hand wringing?????

    Exactly, Here is an OSU guy who is more objective than many on this site and he has expressed a very rational reason why the MSU game is not a true indicator of how the IB will go.

    Thanks B1GTide

    Re: Needing to be talked off the edge here!

    Worry all you like, fact remains they run a offense our defense is built to stop. Run and a QB that is pretty much no threat with his feet. I see us stuffing the run fairly well, and we will pick off their QB at least 2 times. Between jalens arm and feet we will move the ball, and our RB's will pound it out. May not be a blow out but I see us controlling this game like we did LSU. Aubs run the type team we are geared for. Our depleted line backing core may give them some plays but not the game. They will be able to play more run protection and get pressure on their QB. I say we win by 10 or so. Gus always wins one big game then goes back to his 8-4 7-5 ways. They will come out fired up feeling all big after UGA win, then realize that was thier one good game this year. Gus bus in a ditch, pushed there by Bama.

    I’m beginning to think the eeyores are either A) one troll with many accounts or B) they are multiplying at an alarming rate and that we are about to have a serious infestation here.

    Auburn does run an offense that seems to give us problems more so this year because I don't think we have the d line to combat it.
