Is Auburn really as bad as they look at times?

I felt all preseason like there was a lot of whistling past the graveyard re: Auburn, re: offensive line.  You don't take those kind of hits and just keep going.  Also, Gus' offense seems to hinge on that dynamic runner, a Kerryon Johnson or a Tre Mason type.  It all looks QB-related with Gus, but it hinges on having that guy at tailback, and I don't see that guy on this team.

OAM has them ranked 10th.  I'm not quibbling with that, just pondering how they could be that bad, if they are.

Bad OL, lack of a great RB, and a QB struggling ....

They started the season top ten, right?  They would be I think the most over ranked team this season.

They still have a more than solid defense.  That offense has problems though.

the answer is obvious: expectations did them in, as always. i have no idea why or how, but au + expectations = failure. a tale as old as time.

One has to notice that Mullen has made a real difference at Florida.  One began to wonder when they lost to UK, but if some breaks went their way a bit more, they could beat UGA, they certainly played them tough to the end.

Franks is only a so-so QB, and they won't be a really good team until they fix that.

UK pulled one out, which is interesting.  UGA-UK next week apparently decides the East.  It's up there.  I think UGA pulls it out, but that running game by UK and their defense is scary.

Alright, let's see.....according to last week's ranking:
1, 2, 10, and 13 were off
3 beat 4
7 beat 5
6 somehow came back to beat 9
8 beat 12
11 beat 14
So my ranking wasn't too bad - only one minor upset



Almost Halloween 1-14 (that rhymes):
1. Alabama
2. LSU
3. Georgia
4. Kentucky
5. Florida
6. Miss State
7. Texas A&M
8. South Carolina
9. Missouri
10. Auburn
11. Tennessee
12. Vanderbilt
13. Ole Miss
14. Arkansas - may be the worst SEC team in recent memory

The Vols hung in there on the road at USCe and did beat Auburn on the road.

They were up 21-9 in the 3rd quarter and lost.  And you can't forget what they did in the early season.

MSU had our number again. Looks like Stidham will “find his rhythm” against us next week too.
