  1. Not sure where you're hearing this. Auburn will host Iowa State on January 25, 2020.
  2. Based on the latest ratings, it looks like Auburn has a narrow but real path to a NY6 bowl. Below are the tie-ins for NY6 bowls for when they are not semi-finals (they have a three year rotation). Rose Bowl - Pac 12 vs B1G Sugar Bowl - Big 12 vs SEC Orange Bowl - ACC vs B1G/SEC/Notre Dame Fiesta/Peach/Cotton Bowls - At large vs At large The Fiesta and Peach bowls are semi-final hosts this year, so six of the remaining eight slots have conference tie-ins. Throw in the top Group of Five champion going to the Cotton Bowl, and that is seven of eight. Auburn can make it if certain specific things occur. Wisconsin must lose to Ohio State, and preferably by a double digit margin. All scenarios require Wisconsin to lose and fall below us in the rankings. Oregon must lose to Utah and stay below us in the rankings. Utah, despite winning the Pac-12, must miss the playoffs and instead take the Pac-12's slot in the Rose Bowl instead of Oregon. This means either Georgia wins or the Big 12 champion leapfrogs Utah to take a playoff spot. If these things happen and Georgia is in the playoff over a Big 12 champ, the NY6 will look close to the below: Playoffs - LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia Rose Bowl - Utah vs Penn State Sugar Bowl - Oklahoma/Baylor vs Florida Orange Bowl - Virginia vs Auburn Cotton Bowl - Oklahoma/Baylor vs Memphis/Cincinnati If these things happen and Big 12 champ is in the playoff over a defeated Georgia, the NY6 will look close to the below: Playoffs - LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, Oklahoma/Baylor Rose Bowl - Utah vs Penn State Sugar Bowl - Oklahoma/Baylor vs Georgia Orange Bowl - Virginia vs Florida Cotton Bowl - Auburn vs Memphis/Cincinnati (This post might be worth a new thread, but I don't know how to make one. Anyway, I hope you appreciate this.)
  3. I agree with the above poster. Given the fact that a NLI binds you to a school for the next 4+ years (as transfers are penalized), I'm very sympathetic to kids waiting a while to make their commitment. CeCe is in a situation where his school of choice has been undergoing serious turbulence for several months. Given that his natural talent allows him the opportunity to wait and still have a slot available at most schools, why not wait and make the best decision? Also, I recognize that forums are a place of chatter, but conjecture about the Jefferson family taking money is not cool. The circus surrounding the Cam Newton saga really changed my perspective, and I hope I'm not the only one in the Auburn family. Respect the kids and let the NCAA do their part.
  4. I love to see Dyer be successful, even if it is somewhere else.
