Told you so…

My Predictions Came True
By Intheknow72

If you’ll check me, on August 23rd, just seven days before this year’s nightmare began for the “Ahw-buhn Fambley,” I wrote an article on here that made two distinct predictions.

1.) Auburn would severely miss Brandon Cox
2.) Auburn would also miss their old offense

Man, was I right.

When I wrote this, the Aubies were still intoxicated with their narrow, overtime Peach Bowl win over the mighty Tigers of Clemson. “And THAT was possible after only TEN DAY’S of PRACTICE!” they cheered. Kodi Burns would be their answer, surely to produce touchdown after touchdown, wearing the scoreboard lights out every Saturday.

Well, didn’t happen.

Instead, Auburn fan, you now realize what you had in Brandon Cox. Slow, but steady, you had a smart gametime QB who could make good decisions, get you in the right play and spread the rock. You had an offense that could fire off the ball, knock defenses back, and create running room for your average running backs to surge through. You then had a QB, once the run was established, that could do play action, hitting receivers on a rope (see Georgia three years ago) to win ball games.

Now, you have crap. You’re not worth a crap. And you’re soon to get the crap kicked out of you by the likes of Ole Miss, Georgia, and yes, big brother.

In closing, Auburn fan, now I know why you’ve been Aubsessed with Bama all these years. When your team is on top of the world (literally…see the latest polls?) and your hated rival is tripping all over itself, it really is fun to plant your toe in their side, kicking them over and over while they are down. Thank you for the opportunity, and I hope it doesn’t bother you too much. Because afterall, it looks like we are going to be able to do it for a while.

Hello 1970’s. Here we come again!

    Auburn fans are way more out of touch with reality than they have accused the Bama fans of doing. Looks like they are back to being the spoiler, which is the way it has been the majority of the time in the history of the Iron Bowl.

    Gee intheknow, you must be nostra-freakin’-damus. You had the foresight to predict that Auburn would “miss” a 6th year senior quarterback that was a starter for three years? WOW! How did you ever see that one coming? I bet you also had the ingenuity to predict that Arkansas would miss Darren McFadden and Felix Jones. Can you tell us if the sun will rise tomorrow, too? I tell ya, you’re a real soothsayer.

    As to Auburn missing the “old offense”, it’s interesting that you cite a performance from three years ago as your basis for the statement. I guess you hoped we would forget that Auburn finished 101st in the country in total offense last year, and 76th in 2006. Sure enough, Auburn stinks on offense right now. They also stunk last year when they lost to Miss State and South Fla. (Cox did what he could, but he also had the lousiest games of his career in those 2 games.) The question is, will they get better in not only this season, but next season and beyond. Everyone knows what your knee-jerk, crimson jaded response is. For some strange reason, I’m actually gonna put a little more faith in a guy’s opinion that makes 3 million per year coaching football than a guy who anonymously posts articles on his cousin’s blog.

    P.S. Your overall point of that article was that the spread was nothing more than a “dink and dunk gimmick”. 5 of the teams in the AP top 11 are running the spread. Some gimmick.

    Truecrimson and other Bammer chest thumpers…….Could you bammers pleas act like youve won at least one of those claimed 77 national championships ? Good grief , I know that its been forever since youve been worth a crap, but come on people……For goodness sakes, youve beat one good team. That is it. Your about to be slapped around like a yard dog with the schedule coming up. Ive never seen a more retarded fanbase ever. Yall truly take the cake…..When Auburn wins, how will that make yall look ? Stupid as ever. So please keep the crap flowing out of T-town. We wouldnt have it any other way.

    In a normal year, I always pull against yall every single game. This year, I hope yall run the table til you play us. That wwould be the greatest knife to the heart in my iron bowl memory….I can not wait.

    Hey Ballplay: Watching Bama has been fun this year, but the Auburn program has been more entertaining, like watching a car wreck in slow motion. Can’t wait to see the next episode!

    I was thinking more about the ONE decent win yall have…..Can we put the whole Clemson is great thing to bed now? You do know that Wake Forrest held them to a touchdown last nght dont you ? Does that mean that they have a better defense than Bama ? You do know that Tulane (tmc1s sleeper to win the bcs) Got the brakes beat of of em 45-7 by an Army team on a ten game skid dont you ? Strike two…..

    Yall loked dominant in one game….I take that back, for half of one game. You call it hatred, I call it facts.
