Of course, as Tuberville might say, anything could change.
Thanks for visiting the HOTTEST Auburn blog on the 'net.
Kansas State wideout Deon Murphy, a junior-college transfer, is talking big about KSU's trip to Auburn this weekend.
“We’re going to do some prime-time things in that game,” he said.
Since the game is in prime time, I guess anything either team does can get the prime-time label.
As an AP poll voter, I get a lot of email from promotional people. Schools. Publicists. Most of qualifies immediately for the trash folder. One email I LOVE reading comes each week from former Carolina Panthers lineman Brentson Buckner, a Columbus, Ga., native, who votes in the Harris Poll for some reason. He (or his publicist) assembles a lot of words each week explaining Buckner's weekly vote. It's brilliantly inane. The guy is really into college football. Check it out.
He has Auburn at No. 15, which seems reasonable.
As an aside, I'll be publishing my AP Poll votes each Monday morning in the Advertiser.
Here is my preseason poll:
1. Southern Cal
3. West Virginia
4. Virginia Tech
16. Florida State
18. Texas A&M
20. South Florida
21. Ohio State
22. Penn State
25. South Carolina
Yep. Seventeen. I'm totally willing to advance Auburn if it rips through Kansas State and South Florida. I'm sure I was the high voter on Hawaii. When they go undefeated and sneak into a BCS bowl, remember where you heard it first.
Here's a little season primer for you all. Highlights from the 06 Iron Bowl.
