During game week you always want to check in on the enemy, especially when it’s a season defining game like this one. And they don’t get any bigger than this weekend’s Auburn-Florida game. For you youngsters who don’t much about history, I don’t know much biology, Auburn and Florida were once great rivals back in the days of Shug Jordan and Pat Dye. We actually played every year and hated each other. It was a wonderful time.
Much like North Korea and Iran today, Florida was once part of our axis of evil or as Coach Dye used to call it, “Amen Corner.” That was his term for the final three games of the season – Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Yeah, real men played football when we were in college. No, I never played.
Anyway, my point is it’s good to know about your opponent and what you’re up against. And boy are you in for a treat. Orson Swindle (who the hell knows if that’s his real name – I hope not) is publisher of was is widely considered the best college football blog in the country, Every Day Should Be Saturday. It’s a Florida Gator blog that also covers the entire world of college football. And it’s hilarious. It’s frank and always on the money.
If you don’t do anything else this week, go and visit Orson’s site. I go there everyday and so do thousands of others. I promise you’ll continue to visit daily.
