Jerry Hinnen explains why you should like the over tomorrow.

Really, what’s not to like?

When it comes to predicting a game between one team that can both beat Missouri 34-0 and lose to Florida 38-20 in a matter of weeks and a second that’s basically college football Loki, your coinflip is as good as mine. The one thing that does seem certain is plenty of points — the average final score for these teams’ combined last six games is Winner 44, Loser 31, and that’s with decided non-offensive juggernauts like Ole Miss, Florida and Kentucky involved. This game, on the other hand, involves Todd Gurley and Hutson Mason facing the Auburn defense at home and Nick Marshall and Cameron Artis-Payne facing the same defense that allowed 418 rushing yards to Florida. Don’t expect punts.

I’m still having a hard time imagining how last team with the ball doesn’t win.

By the way, Jerry’s predicting a total of 86 points.  I can’t say he’s crazy.

  1. Only thing I can see is if we get way behind early and have to start throwing it all over the field. That could lead to us not keeping up our share of the over, but at that point auburn would probably make up our short fall.

    I’d love for Auburn to be the last team with the ball while being down three scores; that’s one way for that to happen.

    Senator, it’s us 48-30. Guaranteed, per J. Namath. 78 points, not 86.

    It’s not impossible that Florida was a hiccup on the learning curve for Pruitt and this defense. We have a lot of talent on that side of the ball. I think Dawgs’ defense is the surprise tomorrow and they hold Auburn under 30. Perhaps we will look back on Saturday as the turning point and the end of the GA defense’s years in the desert..

    I think 80 is a solid over/under number. I’m worried that we try to come out in the Pro I and think we can manhandle ’em. That didn’t work for LSU. I think we are going to have to see Spread-it-out Creative Bobo instead of Off tackle Bobo.

      Agree we need to be wide open, because we can move it on the ground and through the air, no need to go in close-minded and try to prove we can won by being one dimensional. Score early and often, we will not have enough points no matter how much we have already scored. Foot on the gas, all night long.

      I don’t why everyone is befuddled by the FU game, we moved the ball early in the game, and late. We did not score during the 2nd and 3rd Qtrs when Andrews was out. We played horrible assignment defense and they broke some big plays but they scored on a fake FG and a TD when we were trying stacked next to the line because they were only trying to run clock at the end of the game, one bust and they get a garbage 7. Anyone confused about us losing a rivalry game to a desperate Florida team when we don’t bring our A game? That happens every single Saturday in CFB, it hurts to lose to a team you should have beat by 2-3 TDs, but it pales to the loss at home by Auburn last week to an A&M team they were favored over by 3 TDs….with all their key players. That is more puzzling to me, and I wish both had not happened.

    Call me crazy but I think our D gets some surprising stops tomorrow.

      Pruitt limited them in the NC when they were at their best. Teams grow and change until they reach their best as a unit. We ain’t there yet, meaning, we can be better than we have yet seen. Hope it’s this game.

    I bet my Mother on the over. Sure will miss the old gal if that doesn’t happen, but it will be ok as long as we win.

    Crazy is anyone who KNOWS how this game will end, or bets serious money on that outcome…that’s certifiably crazy, looney tunes, bonkers.

    Unless its me, of course, in which case it is prescience.
    Now, Homes….

      What kind of twisted history are you trying to portray in the War of Northern Aggression? The Confederates bravely attacked uphill. The #&%#*@$ blue bellies waited at the top until the brave Rebels were decimated. It’s not called a charge when you step from behind cover for the first time in 4 days to surround the pitiful few left after their heroic charge UPHILL!

      Dif, Dif – where are you? We need some brave Rebel film inserted right now. The blue bellies are coming and they are dressed in Auburn blue!
