Dear Saturday Down South,
I have been seeing the love you’ve been giving the Auburn team. Guess what? The most talented defense they will see all year – even better and faster than their hated rivals Alabama – will exploit Auburn’s one-dimensional offense.
That’s right – Kelvin Sheppard will bring that noise against the option attack. LSU will hold Newton to 200 total yards or under. Mark it down – nothing over the Mendoza Line (that’s .200 for you diamond lovers).
Patrick Peterson will be covering your best wide receiver – your only wide receiver – Darvin Adams, and he will shut him down.
Les will be Les, and he’ll pull something crazy out of that bucket hat to bring down the media-infested Auburn Tigers. All they are is a bucket of hype waiting to tip over. They will be exposed this weekend by a fast, physical LSU defense.
We will come into your house, take your pride away and hand you the first loss of the season. Stevan Ridley will run all day long on your soft defense. Russell Sheppard will have the best game he’s had all year and will take a long one to the house.
We might not be pretty, but pretty doesn’t win ball games. That’s what Auburn’s offense is – pretty.
So, pretty boys, LSU will bring the noise in your house and leave the blue tigers licking their pretty little wounds on Sunday.
