So today I had a conversation with a pretty good friend. He happens to big a huge auburn fan, which after years of knowing him I have gradually accepted. As we approach the day every bama fan looks forward to, our football conversations have heated up and become more intense, mainly focusing on our respected teams. He pointed out that Alabama is playing with no passion this year. That they have yet to identify themselves, there running game isn't there and there defense is soft (before judgment he noted that auburns is way worse). I have a big problem with this. First of all no passion? Ark we played with great intensity and passion same with against Tenn. We have lacked heart against a couple of teams more notably lsu and usc. This year is no last year team and I'm perfectly ok with this. Our run game isn't there but its effective, and it works. Our passing game has stepped up and I'm proud of that. As a matter of fact last years NC teams have gone with a total of 11-6? Or something like that. Anyways, back to my point. The county feels Auburn is so super and awesome but I disagree. Is Cam newton a beast? sure, Is he stoppable? who knows? but We aren't playing the university of Cam Newton are we? The fact is this, Auburn has no passion or heart. Auburn is not a complete team. They squeaked by numerous team, they gave cheap shots to numerous players, and there coach is at best the college version of Jon Gruden. I will take in note the UGA game, and for once I was proud of the CBS announcers for standing up for Georgia at the end of the game. Auburn had a plan, and that was to hurt Arron Murray after he threw 2 first quarter TDs. When Nick Fairly planted the crown of his helmet into the back of Arron Murray I was flabbergasted that Chizik kept him in. Then Fairly goes for the knee (yes legal hit in college but illegal in nfl) and actually succeeds i was stunned. Fairly should have been sat on the bench and let it be known that those type of hits will not fly. Instead of Chizik lets him play, which does what? 2 dirty hits on a defenseless qb equals a pissed off football team which turns to fights. Poor sportsmen like on Auburn. Auburn is a very good football, but they are classless. They have no heart, or passion, they don't deserve what has been given them. The facts are this Cam Newton is selfish, he didn't shake any one of the UGA's players hands, he instead ran to the student section and celebrated. He is a thug with a lot of talent and a poor excuse of a football player who I hope gets whats coming towards him. Chizik will soon be out of the job after the next 2 years because his lack of actually developing players because he feels that playing his 1st string late into blow out games is important (I.E Urban Myer). I hate Auburn in every aspect. We need to bring more than our A game to this if we want to turn the BCS into turmoil and send Auburn to grave that they have dug for themselves. Maybe next year 5 teams will have a bye before they play Auburn or maybe Auburn will play 3 straight top 10 teams (Ark,UF,SC). I can't predict what will go down when the iron bowl kicks off, but I can predict this. Sabans mad. There's teams Saban wants to beat, and teams he has to beat. Cam Newton will be tested in very way. It will be a battle, and hopefully the tide can savage their season and make it more my while. Roll Tide!
