At least at this point in time, a nine-game football schedule has little support among the membership for myriad reasons, with the ADs at Georgia and Tennessee being the lone known exceptions.
Barrett Trotter has decided to forgo his senior season at Auburn, keep his bachelor's degree and continue pursuit on his Master's.
"My four years at Auburn has been a great experience and I'm thankful for the opportunities that I've had, however, I have decided to forgo my senior season," Trotter said in a statement. "I'm truly blessed to have been a part of winning seasons and championships during my time at Auburn."
I never liked Auburn. Point blank, I never liked them.
[W]hat you don’t understand is that TKK simply exists on a plane of existence superior to you or I mere mortals.
As wise as Aristotle, he….sitting astride the mighty white stallion of his own (relative) ethics…a vigilant sage, perpetually on guard…whether it requires defending the honor of his own pure, noble-intentioned group of gentlemen-scholars-athletes-minor saints (bedecked in the black and red, natch)….or whether it requires his own scathing, damning judgment, cast down from on high against lesser institutions in lesser states with lesser people constituting their lesser fanbase (emphasis on "base" says he!)
Perhaps some day you shall see. Now as penance for badmouthing the work of noble, illustrious T. Kyle King (that local deity of all things black and red, and subsequently all things right in this world or possibly even the next), please go re-read his impassioned plea for Auburn to suffer the Death Penalty. For so he has wished, and so he has willed it.
So, yeah. I can only imagine that smug [insert expletive of choice here] has had a mural of The School of Athens reproduced on the wall of his study, with himself in place of Plato. He’s bordering on Bond-villain levels of hubris over there…it’s just a wonder he hasn’t given himself an aneurysm from being SO damned concerned about Auburn.

What in the name of all that is holy happened to Georgia? I know it was supposed to be a slight rebuilding year and all, but -- wow. The Dawgs have now lost nine consecutive games to teams not named "Siena," by a combined score of 111-25. It's almost like every day is the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Somebody get the Mayor some Zoloft or something. Not to take anything away from Auburn, which obviously starts out league play with a sweep against what has been one of the SEC's name brands in baseball. But this is not that Georgia, or at least it hasn't been so far this year. Neither team can play defense, especially where it's most important -- they combined for 11 errors; five of Georgia's six came from its middle infield, as did four of Auburn's five. In any case, Auburn's offense is either a force of nature, or Georgia's pitching is a natural disaster -- or a little of both. I would place my money on one of the latter two.
