    Might want to check again. Auburn is probably the 2nd best team in the West this year. aTm and LSU are fools gold, and the Mississippis are going down down down. Unless you expect some serious movement from Arkansas then that is 4-6 wins there, but we'll go middle and say 5. So that's 8 right there, and I see no way Auburn loses to Oregon so 9 right there. That leaves Florida, UGA, and Alabama. Ill level and say for sure they lose the obvious 2, but Florida is a real weird game.
    Didn't Auburn lose to Tennessee last year?

    They may very well beat Oregon, LSU and aTm but I think you're a little too confident in that. It's not as though they crushed Washington last year either.

    Not to mention they play LSU and aTm on the road. Plus not sure we have a clear idea of how good or bad their QB play will be.

    Well I for one am hoping you are wrong and they exceed expectations by winning 9 games next year. We need to keep the bus parked at the University of Auburn for at least 5 more years.

    Yeah, meant Browning.

    Until we see what kind of QB play Auburn is going to get, I'm not sure we can say anything about their season. They do return all five starters on the OL, but the OL was not that great last year. Playing TAMU, Florida, and LSU all on the road with a first time starting QB can be pretty challenging.

    even with that said, Washington choke and should have won the game.

    Re: Sheridan sets line on hypothetical Bama-Clemson Week 1 game, digs on the Gus Bus

    I think Gus' record against CNS is really more about Auburn vs. Alabama. Any coach they put on the field has a fighting chance against Bama...even a CNS coached Bama because it's the ONE game a year that matters most to them.

    I will never want us to get so narrow in our thinking that beating Auburn is all that matters, but, to give credit where credit is due, sometimes I wish we hated them and wanted to beat them half as much as they hate us and want to beat us. I'm not talking about "the fans," I'm talking about the players. Their players buy into the hype of hating/beating Bama better than CNS allows our players. It's part of his brilliance to play one game at a time, but it's partly the reason they'll beat us sometimes when they have no business beating us.

    FWIW, I hope they lose every game they play this year but look for them to win around 7-8 games and play us as tough as anybody. It's "who" they are.

    Agreed and the whole key to their season is Oregon IMO. Lose and they could spiral since the noise from fans and media will be extreme.

    I can tell you that I'm confident that aTm and LSU wont be anywhere near as good as what they were last year, and both teams maybe fighting for 8-4 or 7-5. Auburn is a lot more stable than both teams, and more than likely the team that challenges us for the West.


    You mention aTm on the road... Auburn has NEVER lost in College Station. On the flipside LSU hasn't lost to Auburn since Tuberville and Dinardo faced off. So......


    It just seems every time when Auburn returns a good deal of players on defense, LSU loses a lot on defense, and Bama fans are predicting 5 or more losses for Auburn in a year that we have to go to JHS Auburn always seems to shoot the moon record wise. Maybe 9-10 wins is too much, but I can tell you for a fact Auburn wont struggle for 8 wins.

    Looking at their schedule it looks like about 6-6 to me if it shakes out as I expect. But they'll probably win 1 or 2 they shouldn't a lose one they shouldn't. Again, I think about 7-5 regular season.

    The problem is that everytime Gus is not hyped up for a season he wins big. Looking at their schedule....

    I see 8 Wins off the bat, 2 tossups, and 2 losses. The thing about the tossups are that Florida has a serious problem about beating Auburn period, and Auburn hasn't won at Tiger Stadium since Dinardo walked the sidelines. But I can see Auburn at worst splitting, but I can realistically see them winning both due to Florida being a work in progress and Oeaux without talent so that brings us to 9-10 wins before we factor in UGA and Bama. But here is the thing, Kirby has not won on the road vs the SECW yet, and I have a feeling UGA is not going to have the season they are expecting. So its entirely possible the SECW can be decided at the Iron Bowl.

    I predict a pretty good to a really good Auburn season this year, but I'm hoping that doesn't come to pass.
    I just noticed their last four games are at home which is strange. The first 8 games are going to be key to their season, however, the last two at home they will be underdogs..

    Check for what? We have no idea until the games are played - we are guessing. Based on talent alone, LSU ans aTm are both better teams, and they both probably have better coaches. FL has a better coach with equivalent talent. GA and Alabama should dismantle them. And when Gus' teams implode, they do so royally, so losses to teams like Oregon or MS State are not out of the question.

    Its not exactly the road games that we should be concerned about. Lets just say they win two of those (Which I'm telling you aTm is a definite win for Auburn and you have to figure at worse they split with a Florida team about 2-3 years away and Oeux's luck has to run out with the lack of experience and talent coming back) they still play their toughest games at home. Kirby has a huge problem at beating any west team on the road, and has been blown out all three years in that particular game. So are you 100% confident in UGA going on the road in that house of horrors?

    Auburn is talented enough to beat anyone on their schedule, and its usually in years where they aren't hyped to do anything and years where most of the West is losing a lot of players that they make a big run.
