The Daily Countdown

We are introducing a new feature called The Daily Countdown.  A short story by one of our members counting down the remaining days till the beginning of the College Football season…enjoy!

66 Days.

“You have so much to worry about this year.”

It’s a statement that’s stated in different words all the time lately.  Always directed at Auburn fans.

“The NCAA – you have to worry about that.”

The NCAA said we’re clear.  Unless something unknown arises.  In that case, everyone has something to be worried about.  There are no asteroids on a path to destroy us right now.  But tomorrow, there could be.

“You’re losing Cam Newton.”

You’re losing Greg McElroy.  You’re losing Ryan Mallett.  You still have Jordan Jefferson.  You have Tajh Boyd.  You have Chris Relf.

I’m not worried about it.

“You’re losing Nick Fairley.”

You’re losing Marcel Dareus.  You’re losing Drake Nevis and Kelvin Sheppard.

“Your schedule is tough.”

Your schedule is tough.  Alabama has opponents with open dates.  They go to Penn State.  They have Florida and Auburn as away games.

In LSU’s first 9 games, they have Oregon (Dallas), Northwestern St, @Miss St, @West Virginia, Kentucky, Florida, @Tennessee, Auburn, @Alabama.

“You have an inexperienced offensive line.”

You’re replacing a left tackle.

We aren’t the only ones that should be worrying.  The SEC West is wide open if you ask me.

66 Days.
