Gameday blog: Auburn at Alabama

TUSCALOOSA - Greetings from Bryant-Denny Stadium. ...

It is a sun-kissed day in West Alabama, but it's cold and breezy. It will be really cold before the game is over.

Like a lot of Auburn games this season, the atmosphere just doesn't seem right. There was no back-and-forth between fans as I walked to the stadium. There's not a lot of electricity in the air. It's very different from what I witnessed here two years ago.

The real story for Auburn will unfold when this game is over and this disaster of a season is mercifully over, too. The fate of head coach Gene Chizik will soon be known.

But for now, it's the Iron Bowl. Auburn players said all the right things in the days leading up to th game. Will they show something different than they've shown over the course of the season. We'll see.

I'll be here throughout the day with updates and opinions. Follow the link below and check back often.
