its funny that we have the * when their last two championships have been on probation. We haven't come close
so you're saying it would only be a "legit" conversation if everyone responds...
the mighty Tigers of AU have revamped the Auburn creed & are on their way to an 12+ win season under guru Gus & his staff of all star coaches.
would that be "legit" ?
you will never "learn" will you ?
TURDS ALL UP IN THIS MUG. /// "2010 Auburn Tigers, my favorite team. Unbeaten in all ways." -- Dan Wetzel, April 4, 2013, 6:29 p.m.
It's early. AU needs to find a solid QB. If they do, then a bowl game is not out of the question. But if they can't, it will get really ugly. 3-6 wins, but I'll wait til Spring ball first.
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
if the Aubz manage a 3-0 start & find away to slip past Arky & Tenn late (both on the road), 7-5 is possible.

You have no justification in this. You will be proven wrong this year. AU will win 8-9 games... one being Bama as they can't handle a mobile QB...
all of the offense was recruited for Malzhan...
you can't reason with a pachydumb :)
and i wasted my 200th post on this lol... shame
I've had many milestone posts wasted on crap. Don't feel bad.
You're gonna be so sad.
I'm going to be very objective about this breaking down the offense the starting WRs and tight ends you listed have a combined 24 catches and 3 TDs personally I think CJ Uzomah will start at one of the TE spots bolstering the number to 30-31 depending which TE you swap out. Those aren't extremely promising statistics if you are going to be breaking in a new QB like you project or if you are using one of the QBs from last year who threw 6 TDs and 12 INTS combined. Huge bright spot for the offense is Tre Mason returning 1,000 yard rushers are never a negative and he will have to shoulder some of the load early on to protect the QB because unless the guy is arguably the greatest pure athlete of all time SEC play won't transition easily. I think the O-line play will be improved off last year it frankly can't get much worse. On the other side of the ball there will probably be some defensive progression under Eliis Johnson but the offense running a No Huddle attack could hurt due to a lack of quality proven depth and the defense could very well end up with worse statistics if the off season training program doesn't prepare these kids which it didn't last year as Auburn was out scored by a full 40 points in the 4th quarter this past year which can also be attributed to a below average offense this past year. As far as special teams Auburn returns both specialist who were both good this year if they can repeat their performance from this year that would be positive for this team replacing a guy with tremendous speed in Ontario Mccaleb will be hard to do in the return game but there are capable athletes in place. They have the chance to get off to a 3-0 start with Washington state, Arkansas State, and Mississippi State I give Auburn the Mississippi state game in a close win soley based on the fact it's a home game for AU. Going to LSU I can't see a win coming in Death Valley for AU but I could see it being a much tighter game than expected with the amount LSU lost but LSU probably has one of the most stacked teams talent wise in the SEC and NCAA so it could also be an ugly game for AU. Then AU has a bye week to lick their wounds after going to Baton Rouge, I think whoever scheduled this bye is a genius as the Ole Miss game could be huge as far as momentum a 5-1 Auburn team going into the Texas A&M game is much more formidable than a 4-2 team. However I think with Ole Miss being on the upswing I think they will beat Auburn in Oxford in what will likely end up looking like a basketball game score by the end. After OM is Western Carolina who is a win barring a meltdown during the game. I can't see Auburn going into College Station and getting a win even though the Tigers should be amped for this game after the public lashing they received last year in Auburn. FAU will be an Auburn win. After that Auburn has away games at Arkansas and at Tennesse in consecutive weeks I see AU going 1-1 in these games with the mystery surrounding AU, Arky, and UT with new coaching staffs and new QBs for atleast Arky and UT possibly AU it's hard to get a great read as to how these games will go. After the road trip AU closes with UGA bye week Alabama both games at home I see AU going 0-2 in these games with two teams with very good balance on offense with returning QBs and RBs that will be able to move the ball effectively versus what will probably be a run down Tiger defense by this point in the year. So overall I think Auburn will be 6-6 make it to a small bowl BBVA Compas bowl or possibly Music City bowl probably win and end up with a 7-6 record to end the year. If things do go wrong much like they did this year I could see AU slipping to another sub .500 year at 5-7 if things go horribly with an early loss to MSU or ending the year 0-4 vs Arky, UT,UGA, and UA I could see a terrible 4-8 year. I personally hope for a decent year because its not much of a rivalry when one team is good and one isn't.
Ole Miss plays in Auburn.

and then take Arky and Tn back. (6-6)
I was just waiting for someone to post a schedule.

I could see 7 wins but its just so hard to give auburn any credit after last season. It's easy to think that they will be much improved but there really isn't anything to base it on. Even though I picked them to beat both Mississippi teams I kinda think they split. I had 6-6 in my head so gave them a win vs Ole Miss even though I think they lose.
Cop out here, but it's honestly too early to tell.
Of course it is. If we made predictions mid season then it's not nearly as hard and everyones thoughts would be similar. After watching auburn sneak past la-Monroe in overtime I could have told you they would be 3-9. Preseason I would have picked 7-5.
Man, it's like Groundhog day. I swear it's like I've already read this thread before.

If Marshall isn't a great QB they are in trouble. There's just no talent on that team. They might have some young guys who will be good in the future, but next season is going to only go as far as Marshall takes them. He's also going to have to deal with a young, inexperienced OL with not much talent at the skill positions. If Gus can get him off to a fast start then they have a chance at a bowl. I would bet almost anything they won't win 8 games. That might be more than a little optimistic at this point.
Help me understand why you say there is no talent on a team that just signed its 4th consecutive Top 10 class.
I get the 3-9 record under the retard HC, who is now gone, but no talent? Hmmm...
