I know we have long debated the significance of our rivalry with the Auburn Tigers. While I have no problem expressing how I feel about those gravy-sweating cousin lovers, I've often wondered how I would feel if we won every game except the Iron Bowl.
Playing in the same division as LSU has really screwed us this year. The possibility still exists that we could back our way in to the SEC Championship Game and/or even the BCS title game, but we have to rely on other teams to do the dirty work for us.
My question is simple:
Would you trade a victory over LSU for a loss to Auburn in 2011, considering that would get us into the SEC Championship Game and put us in the driver's seat for the BCS Championship Game?
Absolutely; winning championships is more important than our record against any one team (95 votes)
No way; we have to take care of business against our in-state rival before I can celebrate other accomplishments (142 votes)
