    Love him or hate him, Sheridan knows what gets people going There's a lot more to read re: his tweaks on awburn.

    Is it August yet?

    Short Bus is 8-7 overall and 3-6 vs the SEC since his extension. What a life.

    He's also lost 25 games in the last 5 years, average of 5 a year. Saban has lost 21 games in 12 years. I really think this is his last year since I think they will lose at least 4 games.

    Yes but Gus is one of 3 active coaches that has beat him multiple times, and Saban always has trouble beating him down at Jerkin Hair Stadium. Ive never attended an Alabama game and been so nervous when we played a 6 win team than I was in 2015 @ Auburn.

    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.

    Auburn is weird. I could see them doing what 81 said but I could also see them starting the season 2-2 and looking at a 6 loss season

    Mario (Oregon) is familiar enough with awbern that they won't be totally surprised by the smoke and mirrors offense that caught Washington last year...

    Maybe, but that Washington team that played them last year was leagues better on defense than what Oregon brings back this year on defense. Point is Oregon beating them will likely be decided off talent and physicality not the fact that Cristobal knows Gus's offense.... Hell Saban knows his offense and has only blown him out once with far better defenses than Oregon has had in the last 20 years. I don't see Oregon keeping it close against Auburn with their defense.

    Conversely, Auburn returned more offensive power last year than they do this year.

    Then, there's the Jack Lockler vs. Justin Herbert debate.

    IIRC, it was more Auburn's defense and Washington's inept offense that won Auburn the game last year than Auburn's offense.

    I think that Auburn will struggle to win 8 games this year. I could as easily see them only winning 6 as winning 8. I don't give them a prayer of winning 10+.

    I think you mean Browning.

    Auburn's defense is going to kill Herbert, and I think everyone deep down knows it. Oregon's only hope is that Auburn's offense is so bad that they cant move it on a defense that only kept 1 PAC 12 team under 20 last year.

    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.
