| Alabama Sports Board|| National Championship Game Tickets - elposter on 12/8/14 at 3:00 pm|
So, I can't go to the Semi-Final so I was taking a look at prices for National Championship tickets in the event Alabama makes it. Holy shite. Worst seats in the house are starting at $800+ per ticket - for upper deck corner end zone seats.
What do think are the odds these will come down? I'd p...

| SEC Rant|| Alabama / MSU line up to 8.5 - elposter on 11/12/14 at 1:13 pm|
I think it started at 6 or 6.5. Getting too high in my opinion. This has all the makings of a one score game. Surprised that much action is coming in on Alabama.
I wonder what the record is for biggest point spread dog for a #1 team in college football?

| SEC Rant|| Question about MSU's pass defense - elposter on 11/10/14 at 9:27 am|
MSU is 120th (out of 125) in pass defenses, giving up 300 yards/per game (which is hard to do). That was very suprising to me for a number 1 ranked undefeated team.
Digging a little deeper they are a much better but still not great 37th in pass efficiency defense, indicating that their pass defe...
| Alabama Sports Board|| MSU's pass defense. - elposter on 11/10/14 at 9:09 am|
Like most people, I was shocked that Alabama threw the ball 45 times against a really good LSU pass defense. I think I would have liked to see Alabama (particularly Sims) run it a bit more. However, the way the game went, it really did look like the defense was dictating that we throw it and the r...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Blake Sims needs to test LSU with this legs - elposter on 11/4/14 at 5:02 pm|
It seems like mobile QBs have had success against LSU this year.
Marshall (AU) and Prescott (MSU) went for over 100 yards on them. Even guys like Wisconsin's QB (40 yards), Driskel (UF) (70 yards), and Wallace (Ole Miss) (40 yards) were able to make some plays with their legs.
I imagine LSU...

Obviously, we need help in that Ole Miss has to lose, probably twice unless we get into a favorable three way tie-breaker situation with Ole Miss, which I would not like to rely on.
So clearly we are pulling for A&M to stick Ole Miss with a loss (come on A&M defenses, get your shite together for...

I know mortgage brokers are middle men who have to get paid some how. I'm assuming that ultimately it is the borrower who pays for their services even though it may be wrapped up in the loan product and appear that the lender is paying.
Most of the time the idea is to "cut out the middle man" ...

Besides Auburn 2012 to 2013 what other teams have gone worst to first in SEC history (football)?
I can't think of any off the top of my head.
Also, what is your team's biggest season to season improvement in games won?
A brief look appears to show for Bama it is +5 which happene...

I'm leaning towards Clemson winning this game even though South Carolina is at home favored by 6. Predictions?...

I missed the game, but saw the box score indicated Chattanooga was a heavy run team with 35 rushing attempts and only 15 passing attempts.
So, what kind of offense does Chattanooga run? Anything similar to Auburn's offense? Hoping we were able to use that game as a bit of a scrimmage for Aubu...

I really believe, Alabama could spend one film session and one practice on Chattanooga and get by. Might not be a pretty win, but I b...

With all due respect to Chattanooga, it's basically Iron Bowl week (for the fans at least).

This year there were si...

I went to the Auburn-Ole Miss game Saturday and I was impressed with Auburn's Dline, including the freshman Lawson. Auburn has some explosive and disruptive players on the line. The secondary looks good at times and bad at times, but overall better than I expected. If Auburn had better LB play, t...
