News of the day, 9/21

(WAS) BREAKING NEWS: TB Brad Lester is expected to return for Auburn's game against Vanderbilt after a six-game suspension. It was an NCAA issue. If you were wondering why Auburn wasn't more open about the situation, you now have an answer. They were at the NCAA's mercy on this one.

Hey everyone. It's Friday. That means the Tigers sonn will leave for their west Georgia pre-game compound. Big week for them. New Mexico State can score points against most teams. Based on what's been happening at Auburn lately, it's reasonable to assume NMSU will score on its first or second drive.

That has happened more than 80% of the time during the past 11 games. Just sayin'.

Can Auburn's offense dig out of that hole? Probably. Can it dig out of multiple holes? That's anyone's guess. Auburn will have a clear running-game advantage, I think, with an improving offensive line and a couple of decent backs. That'll probably be enough.

Big up to YOU for visiting the HOTTEST Auburn blog on the 'net.

I've received some emails this morning already (y'all start early, I say!) about Brad Lester's situation. The issue apparently has been resolved after a nine-month wait. Not much else to say there. He's an excellent player who will make the Tigers a more potent team. Auburn probably is going to lose at Florida anyway. At least they'll have Lester back for winnable games against Vandy, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama.

FOOTNOTE: This was an incredibly tough story to follow. People were remarkably quiet about Lester's situation -- for totally legitimate reasons. Just sayin.

I talked with several fans today for a story I'm running tomorrow. They certainly weren't panicked about the team's situation. I think it's fair to say people already are looking toward 2008, but the Auburn fans I polled were pretty strong in their overall approval of Tuberville. Of course, fans and The People Who Matter sometimes have different opinions. We'll learn more about that chasm if the losing continues.

It is the first blog I go to before a game... great job Jay. I am spending $21.99 on our Florida BrightHouse cable to watch the game on ESPN Game plan. I better get my moneys worth. LOL.

Watching Syracuse beat up on Louisville... wooo I am not a a fan of these West Virgina, Louisville teams who play no one and get ranked high.

Since I live in Florida and hate the Gators and FSU, and not into the Bama-AU thing... I am now hoping Georgia kills Alabama. ALA is in their place when the lose and now at 3-0 they are getting big mouths.. ( the fans). THey need to lose and go back and wiat for Auburn to come beat them. We will recover. Long season but we wont lose to Bama.

Who is the worse team? Louisville or Auburn?

Louisville preseason top 10. (Michigan preseason top 10.)

My goodness, for the life of us, do away with preseason polls.

Louisville gives up 42 to Middle Tennessee.

Middle Tennessee turns around and can only score 14 to Western Kentucky?

I know Kentucky has vastly improved, but they gave up alot of yards to the Wildcats.

So now they lose to Syracuse. Is it safe to say that Louisville drops out of the top 25?

And I remember you talking of South Florida a few weeks earlier. I agreed with you on every aspect about them. Of course it's easy to say now after they've beaten Auburn.

I am just amazed how Auburn offense is so bad.. it isnt only Cox. Borges said he was going to open it upThey drop passes, fumble, and get sacks. Like some guy on ESPN said... " Cox has got to drop some weight.. his 600 pounds ( two defense guys AND Cox is too much).

I just think Lousiville and W Virginia should never be ranked so high at first.. they play noooo one ( and still drop 1 or 2 or 3 games).
