(It's AUBURN FOOTBALL Season!)
(Auburn vs. Louisiana Tech Open Thread)
War Eagle, everybody! It's time for week one, of the 2009 college football season! Here's hoping Auburn's Chizik debut is a brighter one than the torrential downpour happening up here this morning, in the Tragic City. In a few hours, we'll find out what the Auburn football team has in store for us. Gene Chizik admitted this week, that he wasn't sure, either.
We got an interesting look at a Malzhan-like offense, last night, watching Tulsa at Tulane. With a freshman quarterback, it was hardly a well-oiled machine, but Tulane still had a lot of trouble defending it. The announcers kept talking about what an even matchup it was, but I saw a Tulsa team jump out to a 17-0 first quarter lead, and never look back. With 5th year senior quarterback Chris Todd running the show, and green Tech corners, they may not know what hit 'em. I'd look for a bubble screen on Auburn's first offensive play.
Check back frequently today, and give us your thoughts! We'll be here, all day, enjoying football. It's finally back! War Eagle!
