New At Roundtable For Homecoming

My contribution to this week's Blogger Roundtable is up. A preview:

Auburn question 2: The Tigers can clinch a berth in the SEC Championship Game with a win over Georgia Saturday. What would winning the West mean for Auburn, and what are the chances Georgia can pull an upset?

Georgia is going to score some points. Star receiver A.J. Green has a big mouth, but he's got big-time skills to go with it; he'll find the end zone against Auburn's secondary. UGA's problem is, beyond Green, they've got a lot of issues. Georgia has a lot of trouble on third down, on both sides of the football. Their running game has been suspect all year, and I don't think Georgia's offensive line can stop Nick Fairley any more than LSU's could, meaning freshman quarterback Aaron Murray is likely in for a long and painful day.

I also don't think the Georgia defense has a prayer of slowing down Auburn's offensive machine, either on the ground or through the air. They'll have a chance if the game is a shootout in the fourth quarter, but if Auburn can get to Murray, it probably won't come to that.

Man, have you got a surprise coming.

Where's that surprise, Russell?

Did anyone predict this as perfectly as you did, Will? You basically described the game before it happened.

Are you sure you aren't Wing Commander Owens from The Final Countdown? If so, email me about how the season turns out, because I have some bets I need to place.
