Look for a 9-4 record or better.  We may lose to LSU and the turds but we will show up and play hard.
I agree with this. Lack of coaching/leadership was the problem last year. The talent is there to be a tough team and Malzahn is a winner. There isn't a team on that schedule that AU can't beat if they bring it for four quarters-including bama, who struggles with stopping a well run spread O.Like ASU last year I expect AU to improve as the season goes on. Over all record will come down to keeping some key players healthy enough to play hard. There is no more laid back chizikism to stop them now.

Really hard to say since we don't fully know how the team is responding to the coaching change. I fully believe that if the team completely buys into Malzhan's system and works their ass off for him, 9-10 wins is a possibility. The team has a ton of unrefined potential that simply needs a lot of time and effort, but lucky for us Gus never wastes a second and always gives 110% effort, if the same hardworking mindset infects the team over the offseason and builds throughout the season, we'll have a great turn around.

Saying that, I don't believe every player will want to put forth the time and effort because of the previous system in place and the team will suffer from it depending on how many and who exactly doesn't buy in. So I expect an 8 win season and a bowl victory.

predicting next years record seems a little tricky with so many qestion marks going into it. If we dont get a lot better at QB and D-line i dont think it a stretch to expect anther disastrous outcome. Im hoping we do see  improvements there and am hoping we can muster 7 wins regular season and a bowl game win running the season to 8 - 5.

6-6.  Until we have a QB, it's a slow go.

Was it Chris(sp) Lowe that said we would win 8 games next year? Auburn will be the best rebound team in league...strong words by I like it.

In my opinion bamr is the only lead pipe cinch 5 star loss.
The buttsniffers have 11 new starters on defense. Gotta feel good about playing any team in that situation.
LSU lost almost as much on defense as uga. And Mettenberger is no Aaron Murray.
I'm definitely not on the Ole Miss bandwagon. Their season looked good last year because they sucked so many seasons before. They won 7 games last year, only one was over a team with a winning record.
Same with State. Among their 8 wins was only one against a team with a winning record-Middle Tennessee State.
A&M will be tough. However Manziel's play will fall off since his top receivers are gone and I believe both tackles have left also.

Auburn will be flat better than the rest on our schedule.

8 wins plus 1 out of the lsu, A&M, uga triumvirate. And a loss to bamr. 9-3, maybe even 10-2

Hate to put it all on one guys shoulders, but the QB is going to make or break this season. That being said, I can see us with anywhere from 5-9 wins.

With a bowl win, I'll say 8-5.

Everyone is worried about the qb, while important I think we have 2 guys that can succeed in the offense.  My concern is the same it has been since 2010...we go as far as both o and d line allow

Instead of wins vs losses predictions I will rate our chances in each game and add the averages to get a record.

WSU - 99%  Leach is a great coach but the talent differential will be too much to overcome
ASU - 95%  HF and GM are no longer coaching there.
MS ST - 70%  Too many losses on defense
LSU - 40% - In DV but they have a new offensive system and a lot of guys to replace on D - we have a fair chance
OM - 55% - I thin kwe get this one but it will be close and could go either way, I give us the edge because its at JH
WC - 99% - Talent Diff
T A&M - 40%  They've lost important players on their OL and their OC -- I would say 50/50 but its in Te'has
FAU - 99% - Talent Diff
Ark - 55% - Who knows -- If our D is good this year (20 pts/gm or less) we destroy them but its a toss up otherwise
UT - 65% - One of only two teams in the SEC worse than us last year and CBJ is overrated
UGA - 45% - Totally new defense, at home but they may have the best O in the SEC with Murry returning and the end of the year makes this a game where both teams should have the kinks worked out
UA - 25% - The talent differential will probably be too much to overcome but its at home, we have a better staff when it comes to actual coaching ability and they will be overconfident (IMO) after yet another undefeated cup cake season

7.87 wins -- > Average Season

0.0058% chance of an undefeated regular season

We are favored in 8 games. I think we lose one of the games we are favored and win one game in an upset against one of the big four. 8 wins and the Chick Fil A Bowl hopefully makes 9 for the season.

If there was any way we could just take this now and fast forward to '14 I'd be in favor of it. Actually just kidding but gotta love Sumter's perspective

    This is the way I broke down Auburn's Schedule for 2012 PRIOR to the season:

Alabama A&M  Easy win.

New Mex ST    Easy win.

ULM     Easy win.

Ole Miss Easy win, went 2-10 previous year.

Texas A&M Win, went 7-6 previous year game is at our house.

Arkansas    Win, loss of Petrino would hurt.

Vanderbilt   Win, it's Vanderbilt.

Miss St   Toss up, tough road game.

Clemson    Toss up, tough test to open season.

Georgia     Likely loss, too much talent on defense.

LSU   Likely loss, we get them at home and early.

Turds    Loss, at their house.


    I assumed we would win 7-8 games in 2012 as did most Auburn fans. No one knew Johnny Football, Auburn's leadership problems, Auburn's lack of developing talent and Auburn's lack of physical and mental toughness. I wasn't too worried when we dropped the first two games (toss ups) and even the ULM game (up by 2 TDs and driving before Blakely's fumble) I wasn't panicking. The LSU game showed promise but then after the bye week .... I look at the 2012 season as a fluke caused by a regime that is no longer here and RIGHTFULLY so.


   As for the Gus Malzahn regime, can they develop leaders and talent? Can the new staff instill much needed physical and mental toughness? We will not know the answers until the season is probably over but we all have expectations of Auburn football. Here are my expectations for 2013:

5-7 or worse very discouraging .

6-6 or 7-5 average.

8-4  above average

9-3  outstanding.

10-2 or better fu----- awesome!

We don't play Clemson this year, and Vandy is not the Vandy of years ago.
