Reality setting in is a first-class beyotch.

Reality always bats last.
It turns out that Missy State wasn’t as good as the media said. Auburn beat them about as bad as the Dawgs did. We can expect a tough game from Auburn.
Could it be that Auburn isn’t quite as good as the media is making them?
Again. Kirby and co blueprinted it.
UGA and AU on the road back to back, maybe two teams in the Country could handle that, and I have doubts about that..
Add in a huge momentum swing for the team of beating a supposedly good team (which was based on years of history) and then getting crushed by an actual good team. Also, Auburn got TG with a flea flicker too, which is just funny.
They didn’t just lose though. They got curb stomped. 0-2 was likely. Getting beat a combined 80-13 is bad even if they’d played at Bryant Denny two weeks in a row.

Smackdown round 2 – unless Mississippi State is going to go full Baylor, that program will always be a middle of the road program. They are the USCe of the West. At least some in Starkville accept their place in the SEC.
For whom the cowbells toll.
Worse than the back-to-back beatdowns, LSU loses to Troy. MSU’s wins keep deteriorating and brings our wins back to average teams we beat. Looks like we have to go looking for bigger game(s).
Except Notre Dame looks more legit every week
According to Fitzgerald, MS had a bad week of practice before the AU game. Those bad weeks of practice are starting to take their toll.
What I learned last night is that LSU is terrible, hence MSU wasn’t that great. Oh, and Auburn is looking very strong.

I promise this is the last time I will bring this up but the same people who are dismissing the strength of our win agai st Miss State on the basis of Auburn beating them the way they did are using that same game as a reason to be worried about Auburn. Do y’all not see the hole in that?
It looks like some coaches have been underestimated. Namely, Kirby and Gus. Mullen is a good coach who makes the most of his talent. Is he the second best SEC coach? Kirby rapidly is earning that distinction.
The tale of our season going forward will be how our offense does against very good to great defenses. If we stay on the same trajectory, those two tests will be AU and Bama in Atlanta. Our O has to improve for me to think we will win either of those games, although we’re in AU’s head about like the Gators are in ours, so I count that as an intangible plus in the AU game.
