Week nine may be the week that is thrown out for many of us voters. Wow! Talk about the bottom falling out. I know I personally dropped from the top 25 all the way down to 44. Ouch!

All fans want a program that is great, each and every year. When a coaching staff seems to struggle, fans and AD's are quick to fire. Nowhere has that been more prevalent than at Auburn, where the last two coaches had almost instant national-contending teams followed by mediocrity. Yet, wins and losses in the first two years aren't indicative of a stable program. Let's discuss the effect of hiring and firing while we take a look at some yet-to-be named coaches and their initial two-year records.

Neither team in this matchup has lived up to the preseason hype. Ole Miss may still win the division, but I'd be shocked if any prognosticators had them losing to Memphis. Auburn was picked to win the SEC title, but that was before losing their best defensive lineman, a veteran starter in a thin secondary, the team's best wide receiver, the top two running backs, and of course the strange case of the starting quarterback.
As the season passes the midpoint, it’s time to look at the SEC in the cold hard light of reason. There have been enough games to see patterns develop and trends to be established. Many of the preseason favorites have faded for one reason or another, and some few teams have played well beyond their initial expectations. But overall, there is one thing that is clearly evident that is different from previous seasons.

Sean White will be a very, very good quarterback by the time he leaves Auburn. This game, starting in the first quarter, should have been an offensive clinic, but six drops by Tiger wide-outs prevented any sort of sustain from the offensive drives. It honestly became comical to an extent. As if the team was purposefully sabotagi... Read Full Story
