Needing Caffeine

Last season, when Auburn had early games, they played like absolute crap. The bad teams hung in too long. (The Ole Miss game went to the wire.) A couple of decent teams ran all over us. (No names needed.)

Today is an early game.

We should win,

I am nervous.

What can I say? I watched the MSU-LSU game two weeks ago. MSU’s defense did well for at least a half.

Auburn’s offense has sputtered five quarters out of eight this year.

Those were in night games.

I am nervous.

The national press has already written us off. referred to this weekend’s Arkansas-Alabama game as the battle to see who would challenge LSU.

One OT loss dropped us out of both polls. Virginia Tech fell fewer sports and they were totally annihilated.

Let’s face it, though. We like being written off.

Auburn is never better than when it has been written off.

This is where the caffeine begins.

This is where the fun begins.
