It’s only Monday and this weekend’s showdown with LSU already feels enormous. I can only imagine what things will be like on Friday. I’m glad I graduated years ago. I probably wouldn’t be in class much this week… Our article,Auburn Turns Attention To Bayou Trash, was named the Headline of the Week by Sports IllustratedThat’s a cool honor. Be sure to check it out…

I still can’t believe CBS Sports has chosen the Florida-Tennessee game as its primetime telecast. I guess Auburn’s number three ranking and LSU’s number six ranking wasn’t good enough. Some argue that the ratings are higher for the 3:30 afternoon game, but that’s a load of crap. Saturday night ratings are always higher…

While on the subject of television, it appears that ESPN GameDay will be headed to Los Angeles for this weekend’s game with USC and Nebraska. Yawn! Apparently ESPN has decided to follow ABC’s Saturday Night Football telecast and go to the location of that game. They’ve done now for each of the first three week’s of the season. It appears that the SEC is finished with GameDayABC does not have a contract to carry SEC games in the regular season…

Auburn senior offensive guard Ben Grubbs has been named the SEC’s Offensive Lineman of the Week. Grubbs graded out at 94%. The Tigers will need another performance like this on Saturday if Auburn is to win… I would love to be in the mind of Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp. He hasn’t been away from Baton Rouge long and that should help the Tigers defense on Saturday. LSU has a new coaching staff, but the key players on the defensive side of the ball were recruited by Muschamp. He should know their tendencies well…

Don’t forget that former Tiger assistant Jimbo Fisher is still at LSU. He continues to serve as the team’s offensive coordinator. You might remember that Fisher served on Terry Bowden’s staff. At the time he was a young, bright, up and coming coach. Now he is one of the best minds in college football… Until tomorrow… War Eagle!
