  1. https://247sports.com/college/auburn/Article/owen-pappoe-auburn-nfl-draft-199793149/ Auburn's leading tackler is off to the pros. Owen Pappoe has declared for the 2023 NFL draft, he announced on social media Tuesday evening. The former 5-star recruit finishes his Auburn career with 256 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, eight tackles, two interceptions and three forced fumbles.
  2. Saw it too on On3. Can't remember if it was subscriber only, but it did include that he'd sent them a Twitter DM from him that said he was withdrawing, so its legit. https://www.on3.com/teams/auburn-tigers/news/auburn-receiver-zevian-capers-no-longer-plans-to-enter-transfer-portal/
  3. My wife's family are Clemson fans and, therefore, so am I. I watch them pretty much every week. DJ is Jeremy Johnson. High ceiling coming out of HS, looked gangbusters in limited duty behind a great QB so everyone thought he was the next big one, but then happy feet and slow first step evading the rush has totally shot his confidence. Hard pass.

  5. It's come down to this! Championship week, where it all gets settled out. Some surprising entries into these games (Purdue? really?) but hopefully this week brings out the best. ***NOTE - THIS WEEK INCLUDES FRIDAY GAMES*** I've included all games being played this weekend. In addition to the 10 championships, there are two small games that will be worth 3 points. As Commissioner and High Potentate of the Touchdown Auburn Bowl, I've made the unilateral decision that all of the Championship games will be worth 5 points, no matter the ranking or matchups. A reward, if you will, for those teams reaching their final goals. Points carry through the end of the season, and the winner at the end gets to revel in the accolades of their peers while the losers suffer the ignominy of defeat. (Who knows, maybe if we beg RIR enough he'll come up with a grand prize like a forum rank or access to the Eagles Nest - which, by the way, SUPPORT THIS SITE! You'll get access to that private forum and the feeling of doing something good.) RULES TO FOLLOW Reply to this post with your picks from the list below. The BEST WAY TO DO THIS is to copy the list then paste it into your reply, then delete the team you think will lose. IMPORTANT: This is done by spreadsheet, so be sure that: 1. The spelling is exact. NO ABBREVIATIONS OR EMOJIS. No commentary - leave it for the discussion thread! 2. Ensure that there are NO SPACES between the rows. If you're using a web browser via computer, hold down the SHIFT button and hit enter to go one space down. If you just hit enter it will automatically add an extra space. Note that if you have extra spaces, you'll only get points for your first pick - if it messes up the first time, I will send you a PM for you to fix it in your post. 3. Keep this thread for PICKS ONLY! If you want to trash talk, use the Touchdown Auburn Weekly CFB Pickem' Trash Talk Thread. 4. Picks will close at noon EST/EDT each Saturday when the games start. If there are Thursday/Friday games, picks made after that game starts will not count. 5. If you NEED TO CHANGE A PICK, please DO NOT EDIT YOUR POST - I will not see it. Instead, send me a PM and I will make the change in the spreadsheet I appreciate the attention paid to pick formatting. PLEASE CHECK YOUR PICKS for extra spaces BEFORE AND AFTER the team name - extra spaces after the team name cause the spreadsheet NOT to recognize the pick correctly. I do a double-check at the end to make sure picks are getting the points but it is very time consuming and may result in you not receiving the correct number of points for the week!

  6. I wasn't paying attention because of the holiday...anything big happen this week? Duh, OF COURSE! Picks! If I had to pick a gif to describe this week, it would be that Steve Carell gif from The Office where he's doing that weird wincing grimace smile thing. A bunch of people made the same picks for the Ranked v Ranked slates and unfortunately, those particular games didn't go the way everyone expected. Ahhh, rivalry week. | This week's outright winner was @kennypowers, who won 43 points of a total of 71 possible. @subterranean_jack still maintans a commanding lead in the season-long leaderboard heading into Championship week. Will @VicTree or @PikesEagle be able to catch up? We'll find out! 1 week to go.

  10. ***THIS WEEK HAS GAMES ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY****** Here we go, folks...best college football week of the year. What it is all about. Great games, great rivalry names, and bragging rights on the line. As always, games will include all SEC games for the week, plus a few extra national games of importance. There will be an optional "total points" tiebreaker that will be used ONLY ON A WEEKLY BASIS to determine the weekly winner in the event of a tie (i.e., these points do not count to season total or carry over week-to-week). The goal is to get the closest to the number of combined points in the game WITHOUT going over (what can I say - I grew up watching The Price is Right). Point values: 3 POINTS for games between unranked teams OR Ranked vs Cupcake 4 POINTS for games with ranked vs. unranked (only if Power 5) 5 POINTS for games between ranked opponents We are now using the CFB Playoff Committee rankings instead of AP Top 25. Points carry through the end of the season, and the winner at the end gets to revel in the accolades of their peers while the losers suffer the ignominy of defeat.

  11. Perhaps, but I have to think that even if that is the case, we would be in a much better position than we are now. In fact, I could see an argument that we'd be better at the 3 year mark with Kiffin than we'd be with some other candidates, ALTHOUGH those other candidates may have higher ceilings. I think we'd have a rapid improvement out of the portal but could see a ceiling - either leveling off because of the sustainability of just portal with no recruiting HS or because he bails to go to Bama or A&M. Note: I would be fine with Kiffin, but am not necessarily advocating for that (or, anyone really) as a hire.
  12. Well, hot dang, no matter where you ended up on the scoreboard this week in the pick 'em, we're ALL winners this week. Hopefully this is the start of some new excitement and energy for the program and the weekly Touchdown Auburn bowl! No perfect scores this week but a BUNCH of close calls and high scores. We had a tie this week for the top spot with 57 apiece. This week's tiebreaker was total points in UT vs UK (50), so this week's winner on the tiebreaker is @AUBwins, who guessed 45. @subterranean_jack remains entrenched atop the leaderboard with 469 points on the season.

  13. Hilariously, this is exactly the gif I used on Twitter when someone asked me how I felt. Great minds.
