    Look, I know that you know this, but I'll remind you - their HS offense relies on dominant play by their QB and RB. We have no idea what they will get from either of those positions yet. I am not sure why you are so confident in a team that is a complete unknown right now.

    What metric are you using? LSU and aTm lost way more key players than Auburn did this past year.

    Jimbo yes, but Oeaux Hell no. Yes I do realize Oeaux is 2-0, but pulling games out of your butt doesnt exactly mean you are a better coach. I guess one would have to believe Gus and Les are equals if you want to go off that logic.

    One who is 2-3 vs Gus with superior qb play every year. And a coach that finds ways to lose many many inexplicable games himself. Florida is 2-3 years away from being a great team, and it never fails that they lose to Auburn when they have no reason to.

    Yeah but when they go on a run with Gus they royally overachieve to the tune of beating UGA and Alabama. It works both ways

    I don't disagree with your guesses - I just see them as guesses. I am guessing in another direction - just guessing - and it makes me happy to think of Auburn as a 6 win team, so I'll ride with that for now.

    Yeah but that highschool offense has beaten Saban twice in 6 years, and both times we had no idea how good the qb and rb play would be.

    Im more confident in what is known... they are going to have a defense that gives most people hell. I am more confident in their system of unknowns on offense than I am of either of LSU and aTm's trash qbs with no role players and lack of defenses. Its just setting up for that typical out of nowhere season that Auburn has.

    Ill say 9 wins, but there is noway they struggle to hit 8 imo.

    I get every team has questions, but youíre dismissing two teams that return QBs. One beat Auburn on the road while the other came close to doing the same.

    We had no idea how good Stidham was?

    Unless you have a Game breaker type qb in which the quarterback is the offense, I donít think saying ď well we have our qb coming backĒ is that important. I mean it might help but without the pieces that are critical around him itís just a returning starter. Look at Stidham last year and compare him from the year before.

    Burrow is a horrible qb, and Mond is an average at best qb. Both lost a ton of what masked their horrible play. Especially on offense in Mondís case. Burrow will probably be walking on egg shells once he finds out he doesnít have a defense to bail him out anymore.

    I would just be more willing to trust Auburnís defense over anything either LSU or aTm has to offer at this point.

    I believe you are underestimating both Burrow and Mond. Both are better than you are making them out to be. Stidham's 2nd year is the exception and not the rule. Most QB's improve tremendously in year 2 and I expect them both to do so also. The Barn will finish 4th in the west and Gus will be sent packing.

    A 40% passer (Burrow) for more than half the year isnít a good quarterback by any stretch of the imagination. Had it not been for Ole Miss, Rice, and UCF he wouldíve had 40% for the season. Unless Oeaux found some quarterback guru that we are unaware of then itís safe to say he isnít going to get any better, and the losses are going to be far more with that defense being decimated by the draft. Danny Etling was actually better than this ďmessiahĒ.

    Mond has some of his best weapons on offense. Most importantly his TE. He is still going to make plays. But again he has faced this Auburn defense twice and been donkey punched by it twice. Unless you think he is due then I think year 3 vs Auburn will go like year 1 and 2


    LSU under Oeaux is due to have that signature Oeaux collapse and Iím calling for it this year after they get destroyed in Austin week 2. Iím telling yíall here and now that this aTm team is going to take a step back and Iíve had several very knowledgeable aTm fans tell me that this is not going to be a good year, and they are predicting a belk and Music City Bowl type year at best. Does that necessarily translate to Auburn being #2 in the West... no but Iím playing the odds that LSU is the clown show that we have been thinking they were destined to be for the last two years and aTm is a few years from something.

    I am with you. Lets just see it played out on the field. Any team that goes into Columbia or College Station without expecting a war has a lot to learn ditto against LSU and Auburn. I would comment as well that Tennessee will come to play. We know that with bad bounce any of these can become a challenging game. If anyone believes any of them are a done deal I would invite them to go to CNS's press conference and ask him, again, does he expect to play a lot of folks against any of these teams or if it would be OK to lose one of the early games!

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.
    Me thinks you are vastly underestimating aTm.....

    Do you even know who the awbern qb is?

    Talent wise, LSU reloads.

    Jumbo and Mullen are far better coaches than Gus.

    Gus seems to pull several out of his butt too.

    Just sayin'...
