Our friends over at Auburn Eagle have a great message board that is fun and entertaining. STAT, who is seasoned as a sports writer, and a fellow blogger, has this to share with all Auburn Tiger fans. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were but without it, we go nowhere”
With spring football about to crank up next week, this is the best time of the year to be optimistic about our football team. It’s the time of the year, we pack away most of our doubts and focus on everything that will make Auburn a better football team in 2010. For now, Auburn has yet to lose a game in 2010 and the sky is the limit for Gene Chizik’s second installment.
Forget that Chris Todd and Ben Tate will be missing from the offensive lineup because we have Cameron Newton and Michael Dyer, who will grace the Top Five of the Heisman hopefuls. Last year’s 68th ranked defense is all but a memory now and we would do best to forget the past. Auburn’s top 5 recruiting class is full of defensive stars, which should plug all the defensive holes from 2009.
The road to Atlanta runs through Auburn in 2010 and those professional players that don the dark pink across the state will suffer a long awaited pounding. Records will fall this year my friends and awards will be suitable for our players and coaches alike. I tell you now; it will be the show of all shows’ leaving in our path of destruction, broken wills and hearts of opposing players and fans.
Join now and avoid the wait for the bandwagon is upon us. There is no time to order hushpuppies because the race to greatness has already begun. Spread the word, this shall be the year of the Tiger and we won’t come home until the final victory is ours. You are either with us or against us, so leave the gloomy thoughts and prognostications at home. Suit up for victory or hide behind your excuses and doubt.
I must warn you, there is the formality of 12 regular season games, a conference title and a national championship to be won but we will be gracious in victory. Let those in the media question us each week only to bow down to our greatness when the final whistle is blown. There will be stories told for ages about this distinguished team that emerged from Auburn and it’s eagle of war that took flight to conquer the nation.
