An interesting message
It was a good missive. I think I'll share. I'm going to withhold this guy's name because he didn't beg for publication or anything. We'll just call him "TB".
As an Auburn fan I sit here at 11:30 CST and I am trying to figure out what is happening.
I finished watching the last 8 minutes of the ball game again and I am convinced something is going on that we just aren’t aware of or are being told. When CBS would show the Auburn side lines it was obvious that when Burns or Todd were not on the field they were not engaged in the happenings of the game. That is concerning. Having had to miss the last two home games due to illness I have not had the opportunity to watch what is going on the sidelines. But there does not appear to be any type of communication going on between our starting QBs. That tells me there are problems.
Additionally we have been spoon fed all summer long that there was not that much difference between the two QBs, but when the game is on the line and they pull Todd for Burns what is the play call? Three running plays!! It is only when Auburn's back is up against the wall that they allow Burns to throw the ball and he throws the strike to get the first down. This does not take into consideration the play Burns made prior to half time.
So I ask, what is it with Franklin? Just think about it. In game two Burns get a cut on his leg 7 stitches. OK that’s bad, but we saw Cox take the field playing on one leg, & you are going to tell me that stitches gets Burns benched? I don’t buy it. I also don’t buy this taking responsibility stuff. Don’t get me wrong. I like it when a coach takes responsibility but we are now are the point of ridicules. So what is Auburn going to do?
I am sure that Todd will start next week and we will hear from Franklin that Todd didn’t do enough bad stuff to get benched. But, Todd is not the leader of this team I just believe that he has been accepted by his team mates. By the same token I am not sure Burns is either.
After watching Alabama tonight totally destroy Georgia I feel sure we will be facing an Alabama team that could very well be 9 -1 or 10 -0. I also feel that if they are 10 -0 we will be facing the number one team in the country. Please explain to me how an Auburn program that has totally dominated its rival over the last 6 years is now taking second fiddle to them in less than 2 years. At 53 years old I have lived thru the dark ages of Alabama dominance. I will find it very hard to stomach if that’s where we are headed there again.
I think there are serious storm clouds on the plains and it could get alot worse before it gets better.
