I saw the above headline on Yahoo.com (I think) on Friday evening night and I thought…you’ve got to be kidding me. However, why shouldn’t we doubt Ms. Spears’ qualifications given how her daughter has turned out. Still, because it’s about Britney, I’m certain it will sell many copies, despite the fact that it will be crap.
I bring this up because for the next few weeks, we’re going to be hearing about how Alabama is a better team than Auburn, because they’re still in it while it will take several fortuitous events for Auburn to have a shot at the SEC Championship.
Admittedly, if it comes down to ties in the SEC West, the tie-breakers don’t work in Auburn’s favor. In the last eight years, Auburn has won the SEC West four or five times, I believe. Twice, they’ve been to the Championship Game, because the team won the Division outright. The other times, were tie scenarios, and Auburn lost the tiebreaker.
Auburn doesn’t do well in tiebreakers, it seems.
We’ve never won a tiebreaker for the West Division.
We’re 3-6 in OT.
We were the odd team out in 2004.
We were jumped by Miami in 1983-84, despite having faced 9 Top 20 teams in 12 games and beating 8 of them.
But, honestly, Bama a better team? That’s an even bigger load of crap than book Spears’ Mom is going to write. However, the kool-aid drinkers that support UA-T will buy it and try to shove it down our throats, much the same way Spears’s fans will buy her Mom’s book and the media will try to shove it in our faces.
We’ve had bad luck this year.
But we’re still damn good.
War Damn Eagle!
