Consider This

January 6, 2007

The 2006 college football season will come to an end Monday evening when the Buckeyes and Gators clash in Arizona. (Can’t believe I’m about to utter these words, but, GO GATORS!) They are SEC after all. So, allow me to brag on my Tigers as we wrap up another great year (full of surprises):

Consider This:

*Auburn is 33-5 over the past three seasons. That is third best in the country behind the past two national champions, Texas and USC.

*This year’s outstanding seniors set a new school record with 41 wins over four years.

*In the last five years, AUburn has won exactly 50 games.
2002 9-4
2003 8-5
2004 13-0
2005 9-3
2006 11-2
TTL 50-14
*Auburn is averaging 10 wins a season over the last 5 years.

*AU has a five game winning streak against their archrival.

*AU has won parts of 5 SEC-Wests since CTT arrived.

*AU has the only perfect season in the SEC since UT in 98.

*Creating a virtual factory for NFL talent.

*Leading the charge for a Div-1 playoff system and integrity from the media.

Props to Tubs:
*Tuberville is 7-1 against the last 8 Top-10 teams he has played, and 13- 7 against his last 20 Top-10 opponents. He is 22-3 against SEC teams over the last three years.He has had only one losing season at Auburn—his first, in 1999, when he went 5-6 following a 3-8 season the previous year. (One year later, he was playing in the SEC Championship game.)

Not too shabby, eh?

War Eagle!
