Kind of ambivalent. Will be happy for my wife and other Auburn friends if they win. Won't be upset at all if they lose either. Will be watching with some Auburn people in the crowd I'm sure, so I'll probably end up leaning towards Auburn during the game.
Don't really care about the SEC st...

Good point. Hope so.
Alabama will be stacked at skill positions and should be pretty good on the oline so the opportunity will be there for the QB.

So no spring ball at Bama.
He'd have to be pretty special to win the job in just a few weeks in the fall. Either that or Alabama is really lacking viable options at QB right now.
Hope it's the former, not th...

Well if your reasoning is going to account for teams outside of the SEC (for whom it is of course impossible to win the SEC), then this question kind of becomes silly.

Since SEC expansion there have been 22 teams win the SEC championship and only half that many SEC teams have won the National Championship (still ave VERY impressive percentage).
This indicates that despite the recent 7 year SEC run and the 2011 LSU/Alabama experience, winning the Na...

I think Auburn is going to beat FSU, so I agree.
However, Auburn is merely one of a dozen or more teams that are going to have as good shot as the other teams to win the NC over the next several years, so he needs to win it now because there sure ar...

2. Lose CCG and win BCSCG (don't think it's ever happened)
3. Not even play in CCG and win BCSCG (Bama - 2011)
4. Win CCG and lose BCSCG (LSU - 2011)
