It’s a standard part of “Coachspeak” whenever a new Coach comes on the scene, to announce to the world that no position is safe. Everyone starts with a clean slate and will have to earn their spot from this point forward. On Tuesday, Coach Gene Chizik released the depth chart for the start of the 2012 campaign, which kicks off this Saturday in Atlanta against a familiar foe in recent years, the Clemson Tigers. And it became obvious at first glance that new coordinators, Brian Van Gorder and Scott Loeffler, meant what they said.+Continue Reading

Clemson returns 15 starters and despite Sammy Watkins being suspended for the first two games, it appears their strength will definitely be at the skills positions. Junior Tajh Boyd 6’1″ 230 returns at QB. He threw for 3,828 yards with 33 TD’s and 12 INT’s in 2011. Running Back, Andre Ellington 5’11′ 190, who rushed for 1,178 yards with 11 TD’s also returns to the backfield.
With Watkins out, they’ll look to DeAndre Hopkins at WR and fortunately, badass TE Dwayne Allen doesn’t appear to be on the roster. I researched one website that had him listed as the best TE in America this year (Non Clemson Site) but he’s not on their official roster so he either graduated or left early. Good thing because he was in fact badass.+Continue Reading
It begins with defense 2010 was an anomaly. But not in the way Bama fans want you think. There are those who claim Auburn was a one-year wonder, but if that’s the case there are a lot of those over the past 20 years. Perennial “powerhouses” Ohio State, Michigan, Texas and Oklahoma have exactly the same number of national titles as the Tigers in the past two decades. Where Auburn’s 2010 title differed was in defense. The Tigers are the only team in the past 20 years to win a title while surrendering an average of more than 20 points per game. Auburn allowed an average of 24 in 2010. Fourteen of the last twenty title holders allowed double digits, but only LSU’s 2007 squad (19.9 per game) came close to bumping 20.+Continue Reading
Lee Corso set the tone.
- Auburn hasn’t played this season. I didn’t go to any games, so I can’t be sure that what I’ve seen on TV wasn’t some fancy PIXAR presentation.
- I saw Auburn play four games last year. I know Cam Newton exists. Whether or not he’s a cyborg is a different topic.
- Because Auburn isn’t playing this season, the Iron Bowl must not be happening next week.
- Robert Griffin III is the best player in college football. Baylor? BAYLOR? I mean, come on. We talkin’ bout Baylor. Baylor.
- Trent Richardson is going to win the Heisman.
- Alabama is going to have the easiest path to the BCSCG.
- LSU may or may not beat Arkansas and Georgia.+Continue Reading
