  1. SEC Media Days, and certainly the Egg Bowl, just got a whole lot more interesting. I've been wanting Leach in the SEC for years (just not at Auburn).
  2. A Clemson loss (unlikely) would help too, I imagine, since Virginia is slotted right now to swoop in and snag a NY6 spot. I suppose if UGA wins on Saturday and both LSU and UGA make the top 4 (also unlikely), then we would head to the Orange Bowl. I'd say our floor right now is the Citrus Bowl.
  3. So with us ranked ahead of Alabama now, what needs to happen for Auburn to backdoor its way into a New Year 6 bowl?
  4. That sounds like the Patriots' offense to me. Let Brady dink it 5 yards or less on a crossing route and then let the shifty WR rack up yards for him despite his below-average arm talent 😮
  5. Geez. I still don't understand the decisions in the last minute--and that's all on Bruce Pearl. Two other things: 1.) when we're trailing with under 7:00 to play, I'm not crazy about McKlemore chunking up a 3 with the most awkward jump shot in the conference (I'm not down on the guy, that's just not his game); and 2.) Did it seem like we didn't run a single set play all night? As for the tournament, being projected as a 7-seed before the loss at home tonight means we're very close to the bubble already. Teams from major conferences rarely get seeded below a 9 or 10 because the mid-majors gobble up most of the 11-16 seeds. I still think we make it in, but tonight's loss may force Auburn into a must-win in its first SEC tournament game.
  6. Looks like LSU could be down a starting O-lineman and LB. They're pretty thin at several positions so we should be able to wear them down.
  7. Justin Ferguson just tweeted that abc would switch to the AU game at 2:40 Central except for viewers in Ohio or Oregon.
  8. I've got my Roku handy in case they just stream it on some online-only format. Surely not, but I don't know if they bump the Georgia game on ESPN or the US Open on the deuce for the Auburn game.
  9. Any early indications of what the crowd breakdown looks like? I'm hoping it looks something like 70-30 AU.
  10. It definitely hurts the 2018 team, but I disagree that it shows players are not committed to the program. Sounds like Pettway was going to leave after this year regardless; Holland wouldn't have as much time to sack QBs in 2018 since the secondary will lose a lot of experience this year, and Carlton Davis and Kerryon grade out pretty well on the NFL draft boards. Also, Alabama will have at least four underclassmen jump to the NFL this year (and maybe 6-7). In the big picture, if we have players do well enough to warrant an early exit for the NFL, it helps the program IMO.
  11. There was a story after the SECCG that Holland at least intimated to Benjamin Wolk that he was returning to AU next year. I don't remember reading anything too direct in reference to Stidham. I think it is just assumed that he'll return since he could vault into a very high pick next year if he continues to develop. He's one of the few eligible underclassmen for whom sticking around another year really could pay dividends.
  12. The Citrus Bowl isn't as good as the New Year's Six games (even though Notre Dame sounds like a more interesting matchup). The Orange has an ACC tie-in, which is why Miami landed there. Since the Rose and Sugar Bowls (which have Big Ten and SEC tie-ins) are the playoff semifinals this year, and since the SEC and Big Ten sent a combined 6 teams to the NY6 Bowls, there was more re-shuffling than normal IMO. UCF was guaranteed a spot in a NY6 game since they finished as the highest ranked Group of 5 teams. I would have rather seen them play Miami in the Orange Bowl, or match up UCF and Wisconsin since those are the two least interesting teams in the NY6 games.
