Why do people care about Auburn? They return one on the OL and he only started half their games. Nix is mediocre at best and they lost their two star DT's. Malzahn sucks and Auburn will be no better than 5-5 this year. One of their LBs just opted out of the season too.
It's the point that they are setting up the top 4. If we played Auburn again it should have been in Knoxville. If we lose to them we lose the momentum we got when we beat them and ate recruiting against them. Losing to LSU would not have been as bad. But Missouri got AL and LSU added.

Wpuldve made more sense to give us LSU. Return the trip from 2018 and A&M comes to Knoxville first time since 2016.

When do we catch them?

Agree...I think we smoke them.

Having to quarantine a few days. Daughter got the covid and was over here a night a few days ago. So now, we wait four days and hope for nothing. She has very mild symptoms and the rest of us are symptom free. Prayers it stays that way.
Similar just happened with us. Daughter‘s best friend’s significant other found out he’s positive on Wednesday - daughter was at their house Sunday with her friend and came down with mild symptoms yesterday. She and her 10 year old (no symptom) got tested Wednesday. Her friend has no symptoms but did get tested.

Would be a terrible PR move, SEC put them in a bad, bad position but they gotta roll with it and maybe hope COVID cancels the season.

4-8, 2-10, 2-10, 1-9 kills the program otherwise.
It'd be a great PR move. Give the bully a big middle finger and make sure people know that's the reason why

The problem with giving us A&M and Auburn is that our last game with both of them was on the road. The good news is if stadiums are going to be about 20% or so capacity, home field may not be that great of an advantage this season.

From Brent Hubbs:


Thanks to Austin for all his work the last 90 mins on this.

This was clearly a business decision. The SEC looked at the teams who have the best option of making the playoffs and they set it up for those teams to have the best path. The SEC certainly wants to get two teams in the playoffs.

Remember, this is all about the money.”
I hope Pruitt nails this s**t up on the top right hand corner of that damn bulletin board and reminds them everyday that the sec is against them...I hope everyone of these damn teams lose who were given a easier path.i took this as a slap in the face to a university who isn’t seen as being worthy or generates enough revenue (yearly) of the likes of Bama,Florida,Auburn,Georgia or LSU team and we probably outsell all of them other than maybe bama...our fan base would sell out a SEC championship game in a matter of hours And we travel WELL!. if this is about money let’s make it about money..then by god test this fan base..we are hungry!
