Auburn looking really good in the early going. Uh-oh BCS!! Michigan fans could really learn something from the Auburn faithful as well. These folks are just rabid.

With a few ifs, things could get interesting. It has been assumed for at least 2/3 the season that an undefeated Florida would meet an undefeated Alabama in the SEC championship game, with the winner facing undefeated Texas in the BCS championship game. But *if* Auburn hangs on, and *if* Alabama then beats Florida in the SEC championship game, those homer BCS race charts that CBS has been posting, with "One-loss SEC Champ" ahead of everyone except Texas, really get tested. Is the SEC really that tough that a one-loss champ deserves the BCS championship bid over several other undefeated teams, including the champion of another BCS conference? But at least we don't have to worry about all the problems picking teams for a playoff.

What made that fiasco by Auburn at the end doubly ridiculous was the the Malzahn offense is based entirely on getting a lot of plays off quickly. Sure couldn't have guessed that based on that last series...

I'm convinced that coaches need to have a designed "clock-strategy" guy on staff, even if it's just a grad assistant. We see so many head coaches screw up managing the clock that it seems that it's too much to ask of them (on top of everything else).
