Walt Flanagan: As is usually the case with Auburn, underachieving team comes into the game looking like it has finally put it together. No different with Ole Miss and McCluster/Snead. I think Auburn plays better than it has in the last three weeks but this is not a good matchup right now...Ole Miss 28 - Auburn 20
Morris Fenderbaum: Auburn 31 - Ole Miss 27 CANNONBAAAAALLLLL!!!!!
Mickey Goldmill: Here we go again. Mickey, like most AU fans, has lost confidence in our team's ability to score points and rightfully so. WRAS’ sources tell us that Todd’s arm is fatigued and that Caudle has taken the majority of the snaps in practice the last two weeks, yet Chizik has publicly stated that “Todd will start and they feel he give them the best chance to win”. I am aware that Caudle has shown the penchant to throw picks but Mickey will pose the question again: Is a 65% Todd with no confidence still better the Caudle? Mickey hopes we don’t have to find out and that Todd will come out slinging the ball around. For Auburn to win he will definitely have to perform. Auburn must eliminate the turnovers and special teams must improve. Ole Miss has a nasty defensive front and should prove a real challenge to Auburn. Reluctantly, Rebels 31 – AU 17.
Georgia Tech (-14) @ Vanderbilt
Walt Flanagan: Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerds!!!!! Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!!!! More neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerds!!!!! GT is quietly putting together a BCS run. With Vandy, Wake Forest, Duke and then a home game versus Georgia; Tech could easily be 11-1 going into the ACCCG. Watch out...GT 35 - Vandy 10
Morris Fenderbaum: Georgia Tech 38 - Vandy 13
Mickey Goldmill: GT gets it done “Reck Style” 31 – 16
Eastern Michigan (+36.5) @ Arkansas
Walt Flanagan: 1 more win towards the SEC having 10 bowl eligible teams...Arkansas 45 - EMU 10
Morris Fenderbaum: Arkansas 50 - Eastern Michigan 10
Mickey Goldmill: Snot Bubbles. Seriously does anyone care or know anything about Eastern Michigan? Arky 42 – EM 3
Georgia (+16) @ Florida (in Jacksonville)
Walt Flanagan: Is this the quietest Cocktail Party in recent memory? I think so. Chinks are in Florida's armor but this is a statement game and I think they make a statement of sorts but it'll still look like a slapfight to SEC fans...Gaytors 30 - UGay 17
Morris Fenderbaum: Florida 33 - Georgia 16
Mickey Goldmill: UGay struggled against UT’s defense and as good as they may be, the Gaytors D is still much better. Tebow seems to be on a roll, and has the Gaytors on a mission. Things aren’t looking any better for Richt at this point. The Dawg fans will have to revert to making jort references. Over under on jean short references in Jacksonville Saturday is 11,732. Gaytors 33 – UGay 14
Mississippi State (+3.5) @ Kentucky
Walt Flanagan: MSU wuz robbed! Kentucky is riding high two weeks after the Auburn game and needs this game to help their bowl eligibility. They'll get it...UK 24 - MSU 17
Morris Fenderbaum: MSU 24 - UK 20
Mickey Goldmill: Usually this game does not garner any real attention across the conference but this game intrigues Mickey. Look for MSU to give UK a heavy dose of Anthony Dixon who has 749 yards on the season and is averaging 5 yards per carry. MSU will likely create opportunities for UK as they have 10 fumbles lost on the season. Kentucky seems to be just good enough to win ball games this year and Mickey expects them to be victorious in this battle of cats and dogs...UK 28 – MSU 24
South Carolina (+4.5) @ Tennessee
Walt Flanagan: UT wuz robbed part deux! UT is getting better and better while South Carolina looks like they are ready for their patented late season swoon. It begins Saturday...UT 24 - USC 16
Morris Fenderbaum: USC 19 - UT 18
Mickey Goldmill: Unless UGay is able to pull the miraculous upset tomorrow, the Gamecocks have the opportunity to establish themselves as the second best team in the SEC East. It will be a difficult feat as the Cocks travel to Neyland. Something tells Mickey that Stephen Orr Spurrier would love nothing more than to teach that little punk Kiffen a thing or two. The key is likely which Jonathon Crompton will show up. Mickey likes SC in the upset...31 – 30
Tulane (+34) @ LSU
Walt Flanagan: Tuneup for the SECWCG next week. Still don't think LSU is that good but they'll continue to seduce on Saturday...LSU 49 - Tulane 7
Morris Fenderbaum: LSU 41 - Tulane 13
Mickey Goldmill: More snot bubbles. Corndoggers 42 – Green Wave 3. A Green Wave is so much cooler than a “Crimpsun” Tide anyways.
Walt (5-1 straight up, 2-4 versus the spread)
Morris (3-3, 2-4)
Mickey (5-1, 3-3)
Walt (46-14, 25-29)
Morris (45-15, 27-27)
Mickey (51-9, 25-29)
Maybe all we need is a new hat...
Yeah, that's from the 2005 Elite 11 camp. Josh Freeman, Tim Tebow, Pat Devline, Jevon Snead and Matt Stafford. Mickey has always been a Todd supporter, but if he is not healthy, can trying a different option really be that bad of an idea?
Auburn (+8) @ LSU
Walt Flanagan: Didn't take long for the 5-0 rose to fall off the bloom, did it? I never expected Auburn to win 10 games this year so I'm not disappointed or anything. Just working the plan. Still, that Kentucky loss was tough. 6-6 is a real possibility...LSU 24 - Auburn 17
Morris Fenderbaum: Auburn 31 - LSU 28 CANNONBAAAALLLLL!!!!!
Mickey Goldmill: Mickey gets sick to his stomach when he thinks of Auburn’s last two trips to Tiger Stadium.
On their way to winning the MNC in 07:
This ESPN College Gameday story about the ’05 game:
Plain and simple: The key to this game is Chris Todd. If Todd comes out and struggles in the first few series, do not be surprised if Auburn makes a change early. Yeah, Mickey is aware this is a bold prediction. There is no doubt Auburn will be fired up for this game, but it’s Auburn’s firepower that is in question. This one scares Mickey. Coon Asses 21 – AU 20
Vanderbilt (+13) at South Carolina
Walt Flanagan: Vandy's back...South Carolina 28 - Vandy 10
Morris Fenderbaum: USC 24 - Vandy 9
Mickey Goldmill: The Dore’s (2-5, 0-4) travel to Columbia to take on the Cocks (5-2, 2-2). Mickey doesn’t see any way Vandy gets this one done, and they will likely finish the season on at 2-10 on an eight game losing streak. Vandy still has Ga. Tech, Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee remaining after this weekend’s tilt at Williams Bryce Stadium. South Carolina may be the second best team in the Eastern Division after the Gaytors. This one has a chance to get out of hand. 35 – 10 Cocks.
Tennessee (+16.5) at SPUAT
Walt Flanagan: What a bunch of toolbags SPUAT is for not letting UTK wear orange jerseys. That would have been kinda cool. Reason #1,789 why SPUAT sucks and they have about as much fun as a foot soldier marching through red square...SPUAT 28 - UTK 10
Morris Fenderbaum: Tennessee 27 - SPUAT 26 CANNONBAAAAALLLLL RUN 2!!!!!
Mickey Goldmill: Mark Ingram, blah blah blah, Heisman candidate, blah blah blah. Whatever. Not gonna happen. Turds don’t win Heismans. They have however become quite efficient at winning football games as of late with their brutal running game and turd curtain defense. Ole Monte will definitely have his work cut out for him trying to stop SPUAT’s offensive attack as they have proven unstoppable so far in the ’09 campaign. Mickey can’t see UT being successful in turd town, especially if Kiffen is bold retarded enough to take 15 yard penalties to start both halves. Turds win again 28 – 14
Arkansas (+5.5) at Ole Miss
Walt Flanagan: Stock up - Arkansas. Stock down - Ole Miss. The South won't rise on Saturday (or ever again I guess)...Arkansas 28 - Ole Miss 24
Morris Fenderbaum: Arkansas 30 - Ole Miss 20
Mickey Goldmill: The hogs are getting 5.5 at Ole Miss? What is Mickey missing? The Rebs (4-2, 1-2) have ZERO quality wins this season with victories over Memphis, SE Louisiana, Vandy, and UAB. This one may be a high scoring shootout, but Mickey thinks despite being robbed in Gainesville last weekend, potty mouth Bobby has the Hawg Express on a roll. Pork 33 – Rebels 28
Florida (-22) at Mississippi State
Walt Flanagan: Florida is missing 3 starters on defense and have turned into a smashmouth football team. MSU is playing hard and pretty well this year and no coach knows Urban's system better than Mullen. Couple that with the fact that Starkville is a house of horrors for Florida (and pretty much anyone else who sets foot within the city limits of that decrepit "college town") AND I doubt Urban wants to destroy Mullen's team anyway...Florida 35 - MSU 17
Morris Fenderbaum: Florida 42 - MSU 17
Mickey Goldmill: In case you were not aware, the Gaytors have lost a regular season game to an SEC West team for the last ten consecutive years. Now that’s what Mickey calls a frigin’ streak! Considering UF was able to beat Arky last week its up to State to do the West proud and keep the streak alive. And why shouldn’t they? First year coach Dan Mullen will look across Scott Field and see both his pupil and mentor in Tebow and Meyer. The last time the Gaytors were victorious in Starkghanistan was ’85! Mind games anyone? State had it first and goal from inside LSU’s 5 yard line and failed to get it in. They played nationally ranked Houston and Georgia Tech in relatively close ball games. Will this be Mullen’s signature win? More Cow Bell!! More Cow Bell!! More Cow Bell!!!!!!! Gaytors 33 – MSU 13
La.Monroe (+15.5) at Kentucky
Walt Flanagan: I have witnessed Auburn lose to Vanderbilt and Kentucky in the last 12 months. Two teams AU had never previously lost to in my lifetime plus a few decades. Ugh. UK 35 - LAMO 14
Morris Fenderbaum: UK 38 - LAMO 10
Mickey Goldmill: Uhhggg. Kentucky. Mickey hates losing to Kentucky. In Basketball. Losing in Football is inexcusable. What are we to do?!?!?!?!?!?!? Cats 35 – ULM 14
Auburn's Todd added to Manning Award list
By Charles Goldberg -- The Birmingham News
October 22, 2009, 3:28PM
Chris ToddAuburn's Chris Todd has been added to the Manning Award watch list. The Manning Award goes to the nation's top QB.
Todd was one of 10 quarterbacks added to the list Thursday, says Auburn sports information. Thirty-eight quarterbacks were already on the list when the season began.
Todd has completed 106-of-190 passes for 1,443 yards and 12 touchdowns and two interceptions.
He's third in the SEC in passing efficiency.
He is ranked 17th nationally in yards per completion (13.61), tied for 21st in touchdown passes (12) and 37th in passing efficiency
(149.45). His average of 206.1 passing yards per game is No. 4 in the SEC.
Kudos to Todd. Let's hope he is able to return to his pre Arky form or it could be a long night in Red Stick for the Tigers.
Saban: Marking kicks not worth penaltyComment Email Print Share ESPN.com news services
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama coach Nick Saban said his kickers will not use tape to spot field goals and extra points.
ESPN.com's Chris Low writes about all things SEC in his conference blog.
• Blog network:
College Football Nation
After reviewing video of the Gamecocks' 20-6 loss to Alabama last week, South Carolina Steve Spurrier pointed out Leigh Tiffin's use of the white tape to spot his kicks and reported it to the Southeastern Conference. Tiffin quickly put the tape in his pocket after kicking, Spurrier said.
Saban said he didn't know Tiffin was using the tape and said it isn't worth risking a 5-yard penalty. However, Saban said Tide coaches have found that more than half of the SEC's teams put something such as a piece of grass or mud on the field so the kicker knows where the ball will be spotted.
SEC officials received a formal complaint from South Carolina officials Tuesday and are looking into the matter, league spokesman Charles Bloom said.
Tiffin hit both extra points and field goals of 25 and 35 yards in Alabama's win Saturday. He also missed a 49-yarder. The senior is 9-of-11 on field goals and 21-of-23 on PATs this season.
Spurrier said he has no idea if what he thinks happened is legal.
"I've never seen that before," Spurrier said. "But I'm sure they've probably been doing it all year."
The NCAA football rulebook (Rule 6-3; Article 10; subsection d) says:
"Any device or material used to mark the spot of a scrimmage place kick or elevate the ball makes the kick illegal."
The penalty is "illegal kick" and is five yards from the previous spot.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report
Walt Flanagan: I'm just now beginning to recover from the Fayetteville trip. That much pork will do that to a man. I'm no less confident in the team than I was a week ago. UK is hurting and are missing two of their most important players in Mike Hartline and Trevard Lindley. Not to mention that they will be starting a true freshman QB at night in PDJHS against a fired up, angry and embarrassed AU team...AU 45 - UK 17.
Mickey Goldmill: Eating all that pork last weekend probably wasn’t the best idea. Mickey’s colon has been paying the price all week for a botched attempt at some good mojo. Auburn was caught with their pants down and Potty Mouth Bobby kicked Ted Roof in the teeth. Except for the young lady sitting on the end seat of section 111 row 8 it was an ugly day at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. But seriously, she was hot. I’m just saying. After two weeks on the road, your Auburn Tigers will return to Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium to play yet another night game. WRAS sources are saying that true freshman Morgan Newton, last years Mr. Football in Indiana has been getting significant reps in practice this week and will start tomorrow night, since Mike Hartline was hurt in last weeks loss at South Carolina. Playing your first game on the road in JHS is a bad idea…………..unless of course you are Matt Leinart. Auburn rebounds. Defense looks light years better than last week. AU 35 – UK 17
Ole Miss (-22) vs. UAB
Walt Flanagan: I may be one of the only people who either read or write on this blog who have seen UAB play. They are much better this year than in years past. Ole Miss' dream season is toast and I don't know how fired up they will be to play the Blazers. This is a classic sandwich game between the Rebels "SuperBowl" from last week and Houston Nutt versus Arkansas next week. UAB won't win but they'll keep it closer than the experts think...Ole Miss 38 - UAB 20
Mickey Goldmill: Going into the season many of the Rebel faithful had high expectations. Mickey wasn’t buying it. Like Mickey has said here before, if the Rebs couldn’t win the SEC West with Manning, what in the tar makes them think they can win it with Snead? Now they are 3-2 with the likes of Arkansas, Auburn, Tennessee and LSU still on there schedule, plus winnable games against UAB, Northern Arizona and Mississippi St. Mickey expects Ole Piss to lose two more, finishing the season at 8-4. Which two will they lose? Stay tuned to find out. Colonel Reb 38 – UAB 14
Georgia (-7.5) @ Vanderbilt
Walt Flanagan: Uh oh. Scarbinsky writes an article comparing Richt to Tuberville and now we find the Dawgs in the middle of a disappointing season on the road against Vandy in a must win. Sound familiar? Didn't work out too well for Tubs. Will it for Richt? UGa 24 - Vandy 10
Mickey Goldmill: Mickey expected there to be a let down in Athens this year. It seems logical considering the Dawgs lost Matt Stafford and Knowshon Moreno as the respective first and twelfth overall picks in the ’09 NFL draft. UGay fans are wishing Moreno had stayed for his senior season as their running game has been pitiful at times. This Vandy team is not as good as the Vandy team of recent years and Georgia is without doubt a more talented squad. Both teams are coming off losses and UGay’s 45-19 defeat to the East Tennessee cat humpers was a serious punch in the mouth. Will Georgia be able to circle the wagons and right the ship? Time will tell. UGay 26 – Dores 21
SRV (-17.5) vs. South Carolina
Walt Flanagan: The Serial Repeat Violators from SPUAT/UNST are at it again, thumbing their fat noses at the hammer. What's new. SPUAT schollies are worth more than everyone else's so they better damn well be undefeated. Stephen Garcia sucks...SRV 35 - USC 17
Mickey Goldmill: Trying to write about the turds is painful. Mickey would like to pick against them. Mickey wants to talk bad about them. Mickey liked it better when they were losing. But its may be time to face reality- their cheating ways have them as a legitimate contender for the MNC. How they got to campus, what they are driving, how they go fishing, and how thick their wallets are is all up for serious inquiry and debate, but little Nick has put a quality product on the field. The Turds have looked dominate to date and will likely continue to win. Mickey can only hope someone will revive Steve Spurrier from the dead and he can create a miracle. Not likely. Turds 33 – Cocks 14
Florida (-25) vs. Arkansas
Walt Flanagan: Florida's D is much better than Auburn's and Mallet, Fred Talley and the rest of the Hawgs won't have as easy a time this week...Florida 38 - Arkansas 10
Mickey Goldmill: Petrino got a big win last week against by slowing down the Auburn attack. Will they be able to repeat this feat as they travel to Gainesville? Not likely, unless Tim Tebow goes into a coma. The Florida D is ridiculous good and Mallet will have trouble in the Swamp. UF 40 – Pork 14
Mississippi State (-4.5) @ Middle Tennessee
Walt Flanagan: The last time Tony Franklin went up against MSU it was a 3-2 barnburner. I watched a little MTSU versus Troy and they had a stat that out of MTSU's first 12 plays, 9 went for zero or negative yards. Sound familiar? Miss. State 31 - MTSU 20
Mickey Goldmill: Okay, why is Mississippi State playing at MTSU? Mickey can only assume this will be the first time any SEC program has traveled to Murphreesboro. Lets hope it’s the last. Seriously, that ain't good for street cred. And don’t go up there and get beat either!! State plays at Memphis next season, at UAB in 2011 and 2013. They play at Troy in 2012 and play at South Alabama in 2014. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot???? At Southern Miss in 2015. Who is doing this to you State fans? Find this person and commence witch hunt immediately. Back to this weekends game- Mickey is picking against “The System.” Tony Franklin blows, but he did put up 3 in the win over state last year. MSU 28 – MTSU 21
FSU releases NCAA transcripts: Some 'Noles reading on 2nd-grade level?
By Matt Hinton
After months of appeals, wrangling over public records laws and the usual backbiting between the university and the NCAA, an appellate court finally gave Florida State the go-ahead Wednesday to release a 695-page transcript of its Oct. 18, 2008 hearing before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, testimony from which was used to smack multiple sports at FSU in March with probation, minor scholarship restrictions and -- most notably in light of Bobby Bowden's quixotic pursuit of the career wins record -- vacated wins for playing ineligible players later accused of cheating in an online course ("Musical Cultures of the World") in 2006 and 2007. The transcript didn't tell us a whole lot we didn't already know. (Although it is, like, 700 pages long, so a few people are still reading.)
The news is probably more notable for public records scholars -- the NCAA infractions process is a notoriously secretive ordeal, and it fought tooth-and-nail to keep it that way -- than football fans, but the released documents did shed some light on a few specific details of the Florida State's violations, and of the school's subsequent investigation and defense, most of it painting "an unflattering portrait of Florida State’s professors and administrators," according to the New York Times. But certainly not nearly as unflattering as the portrait it painted of some of FSU's players, academically speaking, or the stops pulled out on their behalf by (to use FSU president T.K. Wetherell's term) a "rogue tutor":
Brenda Monk, a learning specialist hired to work with athletes who had learning and physical disabilities, was accused of improperly helping students type, edit and write their papers. Monk, who testified that some of those athletes had a second-grade reading level, was accused of committing academic fraud. In one case, she was said to have let students use a study guide that had answers to exam questions for an online music course.
Monk has left the university and filed a defamation suit against Florida State.
In their defense, second-graders are very advanced these days, what with the Baby Einstein and secret genetic engineering programs Congress slipped into an appropriations bill; some of the contemporary seven-year-old's favorite television shows also captivate the Miami Hurricanes. (And vicious, highly educated commenters, please, consider how the unusually high clusters of "criminal justice" and "recreational administration" majors on your own squad might fare by the same standard before you hit that spittle-flecked 'return' key.)
We can still assume that every Seminole at least knows how to count to 14, which remains the relevant number: As it stands, FSU still has to wipe 14 victories from Bowden's career total, a fate that may actually be looking more and more attractive to him -- if you remove those wins from the 2006-07 seasons, the unfolding disaster in 2009 suddenly looks like an improvement.
Dyer has 1322 yards through 6 games this season and is only 206 shy of breaking breaking the all-time Arkansas rushing record held by Vernon Hicks of 7122 yards. At his current pace Dyer will finish his career with over 8000 yards.
Check out Dyer's website HERE
Absolutely no way Trent Richardson is having a better year than McCalebb!
Walt Flanagan: WRAS is getting the Tiger Prowl limo washed and waxed and ready to go for this weekend. I plan on eating pork at every meal and am going for the record for most ribs eaten in one weekend. I'll need every ounce to make sure Mickey can get his ass on the road from Little Rock Saturday morning. Ryan Mallett is the best QB Auburn has seen to this date. But Arkansas hasn't quite seen an offense like Auburn's either. Auburn's offense as a whole is greater than Arkansas. Lee Ziemba, Adam Herring, Kodi Burns and Gus Malzahn have a happy homecoming...Auburn 45 - Arkansas 28
Mickey Goldmill: Go ahead and bring Mickey a pitcher of that orange kool-aid, cause it’s a tastin real good. What this team continues to do is awesome, and has been a blast to watch so far. Mickey cannot ever remember the Tigers playing at 11:00 am before, as they will this Saturday. This should play to the advantage of Auburn as they travel for the second consecutive week to take on potty mouth Bobby and his pork chops. Ryan Mallet will be the best signal caller the Auburn D has faced so far in the ’09 campaign, and Mickey expects Arky to put up some points. The Ar-Kansas D however, well sucks, to be blunt, and will not be able to contain what Dr. Gus has in-store for his homecoming to the Ozarks. AU 42 – Arky 30
Vanderbilt (-11) @ Army
Walt Flanagan: Vandy is flushing a good opportunity down the crapper. They absolutely have to win this game if they want to go bowling for the second year in a row...Vandy 24 - Army 12
Morris Fenderbaum: Vandy 24 - Army 14
Mickey Goldmill: The Black Nights (2-3) are coming off a loss to bottom dweller Tulane which before last weeks game had lost 10 consecutive games to teams of the division formerly know as D-1. Commodores over Black Nights 28 – 16. And in case you missed last year’s Army-Navy game check out the unis Army was sportin…Georgia (pickem) @ Tennessee
Walt Flanagan: Tennessee's getting a lot of love from Vegas, favored by 1.5 against Auburn last weekend and now a pickem versus Georgia. Will Georgia be able to rebound after last weekend's loss to LSU? Expect to see some more of this guy...UGay 24 - UT 21
Mickey Goldmill: This ones gonna be interesting. In Knoxville, players are getting the boot, while in Athens people are cussin Willie Martinez almost as much as we were cussin Tony Franklin last year. The Dawgs D is pretty bad and their offense hasn’t lived up to the hype. And there aint gonna be a base coat in Neyland. This game is gonna be about which team screws up the least. Something tells me Lame Kiffen gets his first league W. UT Wild Boyz 30 – UGAy 28
Kentucky (+11.5) @ South Carolina
Walt Flanagan: South Carolina owns Kentucky and the Wildcats are getting short on players...USC 24 - UK 10
Morris Fenderbaum: USC 38 - Kentucky 10
Mickey Goldmill: Kentucky was hanging with the turds last week through the first 28 minutes then the floodgates opened. Closer than the experts think here. Cocky 24 – Wildcats 20.
Houston (-3) @ Mississippi State
Walt Flanagan: It was just last Saturday that I was saying that Houston and not Boise State deserved the non-BCS love. What happened? Mike Price made it rain all over the Cougars. SEC! SEC! MSU 34 - Houston 31
Morris Fenderbaum: MSU 31 - Houston 28 CANNONBAAAAALLLLL!!!!!
Mickey Goldmill: So Houston started getting some pub from the national pundits and then they go out and lose to UTEP. Chant it with Mickey “OVER-RATED!!!” It’s never good with C-USA is favored over the SEC. Here’s hoping Mullen and company bring their A-game. MSU 33 – UH 32
SPUAT (-6.5) @ Ole Miss
Walt Flanagan: About the time this game kicks off, I should be mixing another bourbon drink and working on rib rack #3 (the first comes at the Rendezvous in Memphis Friday for lunch). This is the game Ole Miss has had circled on their calendar since the spring and their first 4 games sure looked like this was all they cared about. Doesn't matter...SPUAT 31 - Ole Miss 20
Morris Fenderbaum: SPUAT 33 - Ole Miss 24
Mickey Goldmill: In a game that was billed all summer to be the game which would decide the SEC West, there has been very little hype in bammerham this week surrounding this game. That would be the byproduct of Ole Miss laying an egg and losing to South Carolina in week 3. Now The Auburn Tigers are 5-0 and the landscape of the west has changed as many are pointing to the game on the plains on black Friday as the one which will decide who gets to take on the Gaytors in Atlanta. Anyways, back to the grove, this is the kind of game Houston Nutt is known for winning, and it wouldn’t surprise Mickey if they make it real close. The turds however are to strong and will likely win going away. SPUAT 38 – Rebels 24
Florida (-9) @ LSU
Walt Flanagan: Will Tebow play? Should he play? How good can he be at night in Red Stick with his head still ringing? If he doesn't play, can John Brantley handle this atmosphere in his first ever collegiate start? I'm starting to question how good LSU is. I know they're talented but if they don't put it together as a team, it doesn't matter how many draft picks are on their roster. I believe the Gators are the better team but this line is way too big for me think they can cover...Florida 24 - LSU 20
Morris Fenderbaum: Florida 34 - LSU 20
Mickey Goldmill: The game of the week in college football, and everyone is wondering if Tebow will play. Mickey doesn’t see it happening, but it won’t matter. The hat’s luck will run out this week. UF 35 – Corndogs 31.
Anyone know the over-under on the number of alligators will be roasted on a spit Saturday in red stick?
Walt (5-2 straight up, 4-2 versus the spread)
Morris (4-3, 3-3)
Mickey (6-1, 4-2)
Walt (34-8, 21-15)
Morris (38-4, 21-15)
Mickey (38-4, 18-18)
Let me get this straight. UT openly calls themselves Wild Boyz and rips their shirt off and generally acts a fool. Then, when a player keeps it real on the sideline, they get rid of him? Seems to me that the players are being sent mixed messages. Rip parts of your uniform off when we think it's best for you to do so! Yah yah yah yah.
Got his Quintorris Lopez jersey on. The anticipation was killing me when I first saw this video. When the Bammer jumps the fence, I could just feel that something great was going to happen. And when he starts running towards, I could barely contain my excitement. And I don't know what Brodie Croyle was doing trying to get in that scrum because you just know he got hurt.
