Add your own choice of Fleetwood Mac music in your head as you read this,.

There is a rumor going about that Gus Malzahn drinks a lot of coffee. I can appreciate this. I drink unseemly amounts of coffee, enough to concern my wife, and can sleep through a 11:00 p.m. double espresso shot.

However, I’m not about to unleash an offense that people have in their heads as having failed miserably last year. Still, it’s good to know that Malzahn is up late. Auburn fans lost of sleep last year and we appreciate the coaches not getting much sleep either.

So, with a week to go, what is there to say.

Tyrik Rollison, though laid up with rumors of the flu, was already back at practice this week. Tyrik, if you do feel even a slight twinge of cold, get back home. Flu bugs can destroy teams for weeks.

Gene Chizik, stay with it if the rumors are true that you enforced stern discipline on Ed Burns. Auburn fans do appreciate principles.

Trooper Taylor, if the rumors are true (and yes, I’ve definitely read that this one is) that you instill a family concept with you receivers, stay with it, please. It’s how teams are built.

Auburn Team, if the rumors are true that you display signs of the score of last year’s Iron Bowl for motivation, stay motivated. We are, too.

And, as hopefully foes of ours throughout the SEC are about to find out, rumors of our demise are greatly exaggerated. And whether you agree or disagree with me on this, I’d love to hear about it.

With football opening next Saturday on the Plains. Please visit on Wednesday and Sunday for previews and post mortems.

War Eagle!

Well, we are a house divided. Wife is cheering AU and I'm AL, but in order to get her interested a lil bit in football, I'm also cheering Auburn on. haha. I wonder how that will affect our toddler as he gets older.

He'll likely be a little confused, but should be no issues.

Thanks for dropping by. Hope to hear from you again soon.
