Week 7 Predictions

Last Week: 5-2
This Week: 1-6OUCH!
Overall: 39-25


South Carolina at Kentucky – The SEC is amazing. A team that looks like the worst one week can slip up and beat a team that looked the best the week before. South Carolina somehow decided what offense was (like we can talk) and surprised the Rebs who all of a sudden were world beaters after knocking off a struggling Florida team. Kentucky handed Alabama the game, literally, but showed that their defense is actually pretty good.

Spurrier has found what he needs on offense, but then again Kentucky has a good defense. South Carolina won a good game, and Kentucky handed away a game. This is a tough one. Kentucky’s at home, but Spurrier has the right plan now. South Carolina in a tight one.

South Carolina 27, Kentucky 24

South Carolina 24, Kentucky 17 SUCCESS!

Vanderbilt at Mississippi State – This one is simple. Auburn gave the game to Vanderbilt and they won by one. Auburn gave the game to Mississippi State and they lost by one. Vanderbilt by two.

Vanderbilt 16, Mississippi State 14

Mississippi State 17, Vanderbilt 14FAILURE

Tennessee at Georgia – Georgia mad, Tennessee bad. Georgia avenges the fluke by handling a down and out Tennessee team. Georgia avoids the upset by wearing red this week. This game used to be something.

Georgia 34, Tennessee 10

Georgia 26, Tennessee 14FAILURE

LSU at Florida – This is another tough one. On one hand you have a LSU team that is good, but not really THAT good, and on the other hand you have Florida team that is good, but also not really THAT good. Playing in The Swamp gives Florida some advantage, but Jarrett Lee has won in a hostile environment (see Auburn 2008). Tebow has lost his luster and is experiencing the Heisman slump earlier than other player in the history of NCAA football, but he does have the experience edge over Lee. So I guess Florida wins? Wait Florida lost to Ole Miss and has struggled in big games. No, the 2007 National Championship game was not a big game.

LSU 21, Florida 13

Florida 51, LSU 21FAILURE

Arkansas at AuburnCan I use this one again? Arkansas bad, Auburn bad. Well I just did. Ok, so Franklin is fired. There are tons of rumors of how it happened. I don’t think what Tubby told us is the full story, but no, I’m not going to call him a liar and say “how can we trust him?” and never respect him ever again. He is the leader of over 100 people that go out and try to please lazy slobs like us who show up and expect a team we really have no connection to perform how we think they should. He is allowed to sugarcoat, and he is allowed to withold information to protect certain people. So shutup Finebaum and all you idiots who call in that call yourself Auburn fans (the 04’s I like to call you).

Anyway, I see this one going two ways: one WAY better than the other. I see us spiraling down into a terrible end of the season as we struggle on offense with everybody calling for Tubby’s head (doesn’t that happen every year?), or I see us scoring 50+ on the Hogs just to show we can and maybe a little more because of Petrino.

Do you honestly think I would really predict the first scenario? I really do see us scoring at least 30 and holding the Petrinobacks to less than 10, with maybe one late TD. Auburn’s first drive will consist of 6 runs, all for at least 8 yards, as the entire stadium lets out a collective sigh of relief. This one shouldn’t be close as we prepare for the trip to MarryYourSisterVille, WV.

Auburn 38, Arkansas 7

Arkansas 25, Auburn 22FAILURE

Other Games That Might Tickle Your Fancy

Texas vs Oklahoma (at Dallas, TX) – Wait, a big game outside of the SEC? Who’da thunk it? Oklahoma is pretty good, I guess, but I mainly want them to stay number one so the pollsters don’t have a reason to relive the “glory days”. No, I’m not one of those who pulls for the Tahd as long as they aren’t playing against Auburn. I pull against them even during the bye week. I hope Bye kicks their butt.

Oklahoma 30, Texas 20

Texas 45, Oklahoma 35FAILURE

** Upset Special **

Penn State at Wisconsin – I don’t like Wisconsin, and I have no problem with Penn State, but I don’t think Wisconsin will lose its 3rd of 6.

Wisconsin 24, Penn State 21

Penn State 48, Wisconsin 7 FAILURE

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!!! UGA UPSET BY TENN 24-17! While you’re watching the game and realizing that Georgia has no shot at pulling out a W remember what Trigger said. 24-17 Tennessee upsets UGA.

Oklahoma is the best team in the country. There is no doubt about it. The only other team that has a shot at beating them is Alabama. There is definitely a chance that Alabama gets #13 if Oklahoma loses this weekend, but Oklahoma is the best. If Oklahoma had Beanie Wells and Julio Jones then they would be unstoppable!

For those of you who don’t want AU to wear orange uniforms check this out:

I think they look pretty awesome.

The orange looks good.

The Bama meltdown usually happens around week 7-8.I don’t have much time to get our and sell the car flags.

The WarBlogler 10/10/2008 at 10:32 am

I agree. They look awesome, but will they actually ever wear them? If we do and we lose, Tubby would probably be fired.

Below is what really happened this week (stolen from

My sister’s mother’s son is a really smart person, and this is what he says happened with Franklin.

Franklin woke up Tuesday morning and decided that he was tired of faking like he was a nice guy and it was about time to unleash the real Tony Franklin. He got out of bed, kicked his dog a few times, and urinated without flushing or putting the seat back down. He then turned the shower on and let it run for thirty minutes while he read the paper and ate Little Debbies. When he was done with the paper, he threw it in the trash and threw the Little Debbie wrappers in the paper recycling bin. He then used a towel to wipe away any deodorant from the previous day and left the towel on the floor for his wife to pick up.

As Franklin exited the bathroom, he glanced towards the running shower and turned all the bathroom lights on. Next, he walked through his kitchen and smacked his wife on the fanny, who was cooking bacon at the time. He threw the bacon against the wall, but he made sure he got some bacon grease on his hands and he rubbed it in his hair.

Franklin then walked into his garage, removed the muffler from his car, and drove to work. He drove 80 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone, swerving towards women and children. Arriving at the athletic complex, he parked his car and violently opened his door, putting a huge dent in Hugh Nall’s truck. He didn’t leave a note.

Walking into the athletic complex, Franklin swatted a cup of coffee out of a trainer’s hands and stormed into the players’ meeting, which had already started. Upon busting into the room, Franklin ripped off his shirt, started screaming “WILD BOYS!!!”, and challenged the players and other coaches to oil wrestle him. Coach Knox began to remove his pants, but the other coaches were able to restrain him.

On Wednesday, upon hearing of the previous day’s events, Tuberville called Franklin into his office and said, “the only person who will be oil wrestling my coaches and players is me. Now, pack up your crap and get out of here”.

And that, my friends, is what really happened, according to my sister’s mother’s son, who is a really smart person.
