FSU on paper. But after the UGA and AU games, I wouldn't bet against Auburn.
It's also hard to ignore that heavy favorites also haven't always fared well in the BCSCG with 06 being the best example
I hate to say it, but I think the noles win this. Auburn's luck is about to run out. I think FSU is the more complete team. If I were auburn, I would blitz like crazy. As many hits on JW as possible. (Legal hits) They need to rattle him. Otherwise, he will pick them apart. As for FSU, they should load the box and make auburn beat them by air. That's my quick view of things.
Nothing gimicky about war eagle's offense. They will run the ball on Free shoes/ felony state/ rapistU Book it. If anything, this will be a shootout. At best, an Aubbie win similar to their game with Mizzou.
The Aubies are no doubt working feverishly on defending big receivers on sidelines plays, smashing tight ends over the middle, stuffing Nole Pross U's run game, and disguising their option . . . as much as possible.
Criminoles go down, like Ali. I like Frasier.
Except Frazier was the favorite.
The purse was equal (2.5 million each); don't know what the Vegas odds were, but who the favorite was depended on who you were rooting for, actually.
Classic pic, LD.
Game will be close for a half, then FSU pulls away. FSU by 20
Ali-Frazier, champ vs champ, I could be wrong but I think the odds were pick 'em, amazing, rare in sports, boxing used to be the ultimate macho man's sport.
I have to say I question the true strength of FSu's defense. Don't bother showing me stats or rankings, I have watched the games. Who stacks up with the power running game of Aub that they have played? That's right, Aub is a power running team out of the triple option threat. I am certainly not predicting a Nole slaughter, but I can definitely see Aub winning this game. My prediction? Aub-20 Noles 10 at the half. At the end, Aub 34 Noles31 , Noles with the ball at the end as time runs out from midfield. Just a hunch (and a hope too I guess).
The name Frazier should never be used without first saying Smokin' Joe. Best nickname ever.
I'll be giving the points and hoping to pay. I win either way. But I suspect I'll be pocketing dough and chugging beer to try to dim the memory.
This year, the SEC did not perform as well in interconference play as it should have given the Ginormous Salaries SEC coaches are paid and the consistently highly rated recruiting classes that the top SEC teams bring in every year.
Usually, in an ACC/SEC matchup, when people say the ACC team plays defense, I note: "Against what?" But this year, this has not generally proven as true as it usually does.
Will Auburn steamroll FSU? I doubt that this will occur. You must remember that the only reason they played in the SEC championship games was thanks to two utterly miraculous endings against Georgia and Alabama. And certainly, Missouri was a weak representative from the EAST with most of the better teams seveerely crippled for extended parts of the season.
From my ancient perspective, this may be the first time in the last 99 years or so that the SEC losses, simply because I don't see Auburn as a particularly good representative. Of course, this year, I don't think there was a particularly good SEC team that stood above the rest.
If you're willing to bet money on an outcome, then you have to be pretty confident.
I'd stay away from this game as a gambler. This is not 2006 or even last year, where it was very clear cut in my mind as to what was going to happen.
Well, you would have to say that the Gumps were probably the most "steady" SEC team, that would have been the best match-up for the Nolle Prosse Criminolies of any team out there.
Of course, losing the chance to do that with time expired in the last game of the regular season, is no excuse. So, we'll (SEC homers) have to hope that the Wahar Eegals can put together a winning plan, and mix in a dash of luck with a pinch of destiny.
I'm a little surprised at the FSU love in this thread. A team that beat Alabama is going to get blown out by FSU? Yeah, I just don't see that happening for some reason.
Agree with this. SEC was down this year overall. A lot of the best defensive talent went to the NFL last year so defense was down on several teams. Auburn had a great season, but also a ton of luck to win the SEC. I think Auburn can win but FSU is clearly a more complete team.
FSU needs only 28 points to break Oklahoma's 2008 record for most points in a season. Sadly for UF fans, they'll destroy Auburn and go down as one of the greatest college teams ever, if not the best.
