Auburn Season Spirals Out of Control

Here I sit at 4:40 a.m. unable to sleep. Watching Auburn get humiliated on national television has been known to invoke insomnia and nausea.  Take your pick.  Last night was ugly. Coming up with words to describe it are hard right now. How could something so good go so bad, so quickly? What a strange Continue Story…

War Eagle, everybody. It’s time now for the much belated Acid Reign report, on Auburn’s 31-10 loss to LSU, in Death Valley. The game was a chance to take advantage of a struggling LSU offense, and get back into the SEC Western Division race. Instead, Auburn regressed for the third week in a row. All Continue Story…

  Teak and JB survived another week, Teak going 2-2-1 (19-13-1 59%) JB falling 1-3-1 (15-18-1 45%). At 11-3-1 over the last 3 weeks, Teak is really starting to turn it on. The guys look to take advantage of a slow week by picking: TCU @ BYU; UConn @ WV; GT @ UVA; UT @ Continue Story…

All’s Quiet on the Western Division Front

As far as Auburn-LSU weeks go, this one has been a snoozer.  There’s been little build up outside of the obligatory stories written by in-state media members. I’ve yet to hear one corndog joke. References to Auburn’s agricultural history have hardly been mentioned by our French-American friends from Bayou Country. What’s happening here? Even ESPN is unmoved by Continue Story…

War Eagle, everybody! After a cool, fall-like weekend, we’re back to air-conditioning in the car again. Such is October in the South. We’re officially midway through the 2009 football season, and the championship and bowl races are starting to shape up. As most folks expected in the SEC East, Florida remains the team to beat.
