I feel confident about the Dawgs’ chances on Saturday. I haven’t had time to blog into much detail this week…a sick baby and out of town appointments 4 days cuts out the amount of time you can sit down in front of the computer.
But some quick thoughts about Saturday:
-With all the JFK themed documentaries on TV now, butchering this quote seems appropriate. I’ve seen Cam Newton play. I’ve watched stories on Cam Newton. Nick Marshall, you are no Cam Newton.
-Either way, Auburn is going to get killed by Alabama.
-I view Auburn’s offense like Georgia Tech’s. Not much throwing, and a triple option of handing it off, quarterback running or passing. I think you have got to load the box, contain the outside runs, and force Marshall to beat you with his arm, something I don’t think is capable of doing. However, I look for Malzahn to air it out some more just becuase it is what we aren’t expecting.
-Getting Bennett back against Florida was huge. 4/5 of his catches were moving the chains, and twice he converted 3rd down. Conley, if healthy, provides another solid hand, possession receiver. That will be helpful moving the chains and eating up time of possession.
-I just like the fact that everyone is looking towards the Iron Bowl.
–Dawgs win: 34-30
