When will we ever get the respect we deserve? Granted, we did lose to Clemson. However,Clemson is ranked in the Top 15. I GUARANTEE Auburn won't play any QB with the attributes like Taj Boyd again this regular season...let alone in the SEC. Not to mention, D. Thompson is better what people think. He will be a Top 5 back in this league. It just ticks me off how sports writers dog us out like we are Ole Miss. I mean, should we have played Buffalo last week? Or maybe Bowling Green? But still, Auburn should have won that game last weekend. I think we had a better team. Even if we would have won, I think everyone then would have stated that Clemson is horrible which clearly they aren't. I really hope we prove the world wrong this season. Auburn, a 6-6 team? You gotta be kidding me!! Just b/c we got beat by a Top 15 team....insane! No other team left on our schedule has a better Offense that our Defense will face!! I feel for Tyler Russell and MSU....its going to be a long day! War Eagle!!!!!

It appeared to me we are a better team than last year, and likely to continue improving as the new offensive and defensive systems are installed.
If we are a 6 win team, it's because we, as is usual, have one of the most difficult schedules in the nation. Hopefully we'll be able to take advantage of some homefield advantage against LSU, Arkansas, et al.
When Auburn wins consistently without being under NCAA investigation for something, however far fetched, then we'll "get some love." We can all be mad at BSPN and others for not raising our team to lofty heights, but the fact remains that AU has not proven them wrong yet. It is what it is.
Seriously? Why do people keep thinking that we deserve some recognition? I love Auburn as much as the next guy, but people thinking we deserve some kind of spotlight from the national media for being a mediocre team is beyond me. What would you have them speak of?
"Well Auburn has played very average on the year and I'm somewhat...kinda...not really eager to see them play again."
If we don't win, we don't deserve any "love". I really am curious, not trying to be an ass, but really.....What would you have them say?
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
