Northwestern works for me. Now I don't have to worry about Wisconsin flashbacks.

4:38 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I think we can win this one, I wasn't too sure about Wisconsin.

4:38 PM  
Blogger mrdude said...

wow, I figured it would be Wisconsin. Should still be a good game with Northwestern, they've improved dramatically over the last few years.

4:39 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Wildcats. That should be very interesting. Have we ever played them?

4:39 PM  
Blogger martini35504 said...

AU Undercover claims it's Wisconsin! Shoddy journalism!

4:40 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

We should show up well against NW. This is a more interesting matchup.

I was dreading watching a game where the the huge Wisconsin linemen try to tire out our shallow team.

4:40 PM  
Blogger mrdude said...

I agree RK. I would be more worried about Wisconsin than Northwestern, even though the beat Wisconsin. I think we match up better against Norhwestern.

4:41 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

JGT doesn't write it if it ain't true.

Just in case, I checked the Outback Bowl website ...it's NW.

4:42 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

I like the match-up!! I didn't want the Badgers just for the simple fact we have history against them. Great to see New Blood in the bowl. I REAALLllY like it.

4:45 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Yeah but if we win, we beat Northwestern?

4:46 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

martini, I've said several times that they report things on a hunch just to be first...no substance. ESPN employees, too. Geez. :-)

4:48 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Interesting that Northwestern is terrible at running the ball, but pretty decent at passing.

Not your normal Big Ten M.O.

4:49 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

A Jan. 1 bowl win - is a win. Be it Harvard, Marshall or even NorthWestern..... I'll take it.

I do love twitter. I didn't understand it at first, but it is very handy for getting quick updates. My instant messaging program, pidgin, has a plugin that receives the tweets. They should up like any other IM.

Northwestern beat Iowa.

4:56 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

E-Bro - AU and NW have never met on the gridiron

4:57 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I am sure the cornpones will tell you that Northwestern should be ranked ahead of Iowa and if we beat Northwestern, we should be too.

4:58 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Northwestern won AT Iowa.

4:58 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

And Syracuse beat Northwestern

4:59 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

Looks like I'll be staying home and watching the game on TV. Winter Classic is on too!

4:59 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Therefore Syracuse should be ranked ahead of Iowa. Hey Jay, maybe you should change your ballot. I would go with this logic.

5:00 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Thanks THT.

5:01 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

I'm just happy Auburn is playing in a bowl game. A New Year's Day Bowl is just a bonus. I don't care who they are playing, but I think NW is a good matchup.

5:01 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Any juniors who can leave for the NFL?
I think Bynes could get drafted but if he stays his draft stock will go out the Roof

5:01 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I like out chances. A team with depth problems can really use the break before the bowl game.

5:02 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

jhag, I would guess we don't loose any juniors to the NFL, but that is only a guess.

5:03 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'd be surprised...nay, shocked, if any juniors left.

5:05 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I think Northwestern is a much better matchup for Auburn than Wisconsin.

5:06 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

In general, I like it when we play Big 10 teams.

5:07 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Shocked is an understatement E-Bro,

5:08 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

USC VS Boston College in Emerald Bowl lol

5:10 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I at least thought Powers was pretty decent, though.

Was I surprised? Yes.

Shocked? No.

5:10 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Iowa State to Insight Bowl nice work Paul

5:10 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Yeah Powers has started all year for the Colts, impressive

5:11 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

QUICK VOTE
What bowl game will Auburn play in this season?
Chick-fil-A Bowl
Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl
Autozone Liberty Bowl
Advocare Independence Bowl
Papajohns.com Bowl

That is what is still on al.com. HAHAHAHAHA

5:13 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

List of only possible early departures I can think of:

Isom, Ziemba, Stevens, Blanc, Bynes.

5:13 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I'm VERY impressed with Powers this year.

5:13 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I liked Powers a lot, mainly because of how physical he was. I was disappointed he left, but not surprised.

5:14 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

E-Bro, I really hope none of those go.

5:14 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

I think it could be a much closer game than anyone thinks. When Penn St. played NW, it was close until the 4th quarter.

5:15 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Blackmon leaving was a shock to me. I think it was personal issues that drove it, but he could really have used one decent season.

5:15 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

PF...me too.

Luv...have others claimed an easy win is on the books? I think Auburn has a fair chance of winning, but I don't think anyone can say Auburn does anything easy this year.

5:19 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I don't see Bynes being big on the NFL draft board right now. Just my opinion.

5:22 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

RK...agreed. I don't see any juniors being big on the NFL's draft board.

I think a lot of those guys (Fannin included) can make a living in the NFL, but a year ahead of time? I just don't see it.

5:25 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Concerning that Ron guy coming in here earlier and telling Jay G off: is sports journalism really that cut-throat of a world? Does he not think that there's any chance that comes back to him? What are the typical repercussions if your editor finds out you're spouting off on other reporters' websites?

5:26 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Need a ticket to the Outback Bowl? Or up to 5 tickets?

Sit in JAY G. TATE'S OFFICIAL HABOTN SECTION* with other Hotties, cheering on your Auburn Tigers!!! These tickets are available at cost, $80, which includes shipping. These seats are in Section 232, on the Auburn side of the stadium, and with the sun at your back. Contact me via email (see my blog profile).



*the name of this section is purely fictional. Any resemblance in name to a real person, living or dead, and especially a blogger, is purely coincidental.

5:32 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

PF, judging by the profound quality of Ron's argument, I think it likely he will find job opportunities in the food service industry, so it really doesn't matter.

5:33 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

True. He's been a sports reporter for 10 years, yet is working for the Alton Herald, or whatever the heck his profile said. Still, I was shocked to see that he was in that profession and spouting that personal nonsense at Jay G.

5:37 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Wonder if how hard it would be to get to Pasadena from Tampa?

hmmmm..................

5:40 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

By the way, I apologize to any member of the food service industry for any offense that may have been unintentionally delivered by my previous post.

5:44 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

You can fly from Tampa to Los Angeles for 147 if you wait until Monday the 4th. That gives you two days at Mons Venus.

So, who has decided to waist two hours of their lives by watching the bowl selection show by not just waiting until it is over and taking a look at a list of the bowls online?

5:45 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I like the matchup for Auburn against NW...

5:46 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I've wasted hours of my life a lot more frivolously than the bowl selection show.

5:46 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Steve,
Depends on if anything else is on worth watching...

5:46 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That is my preferred spelling of waist, not to be confused with waste. Yea, I spell the words right, but sometimes the wrong words:)

5:46 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

What do y'all think the early line on Texas-Bama will be?

5:48 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Northwestern thinks that they are the hottest team in CFB. They beat Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin all in November.

Evidently, NW struggled when their QB was injured. Now he is well.

NW is a passing team with a good passing defense.

5:48 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Well, I'll be watching the season finale of Amazing Race, because I'm whipped.

5:49 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

The BCS selection show is only 30 minutes on FOX. After that, the two hour thing on ESPN starts. Everything will be final and public before ESPN starts their coverage.

5:51 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

PF - LGG Byron will be watching Amazing Race.

5:52 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

New thread UPZ.

5:53 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I've set the DVR to record the show. I'll watch the 15 min. of substance and fast forward through the filler.

5:53 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

How about Mike Vick today? Some homecoming with his first two TDs in over three years in Atlanta. Judgeing by the crowd's reaction, they still love him there.
