AU looks to be a very good team this year. Arky looks to be only an "improved" team. If AU loses - AT home - to Arky, then we missed the mark on AU and they'll likely have another couple of loses, thus keeping them out of playoffs.
This is a fun game for Aky for another 9 days, then reality set...

Auburn will likely win this game by 17 points. They are just the better team. Better athletes. Better staff. Home field advantage.
Arky will be improved this year, but AU is one of the 10 best teams in the nation. ...

I think the dynamic no one is talking about is the role Sims has played for years and how much he is loved on this team. The staff cannot simply "anoint" Coker as the starter. Doing so could have a negative impact on team chemistry.
Sim is universally loved. Every player loves the guy. They h...

Way high. A 7.0 rating, essentially, means that 7% of all TV HHs are viewing something. That won't happen for the SEC Network unless there is a big game being aired.
The actual ratings, when ESPN subscribes to Nielsen for SECN, will likely be more in the 1.3-...
