Auburn hates America, and we got America's back

The source is lost to time and the Internet, but some years ago a Dawg fan described Auburn something like this:
"I'm pretty sure that, if a Kid Rock concert could take a shit, it'd be Auburn."
That is, I believe, roughly accurate. And yet, these people are not merely no-account losers, sleeping on their cousin's couch in a doublewide. They've been successful, largely due to to cheating.

But I digress.

We'd better bring everything on Saturday. We'd better come out focused, and throw every asset we have at this biggest game of the season. Because we're not a very good team, and Auburn isn't terrible.

Altogether, I am reminded of 1997. We beat Florida that year, albeit with a much better effort and without the special teams meltdown we saw 8 days ago in Jacksonville. We were headed in the right direction that year, then slammed into an orange-and-blue wall named Dameyune Craig.

Let's definitely not do that again.

Before the Auburn game in 1901, a sign hung in the Georgia locker room. It said, "Beat Auburn or quit the game."

The game ended in a 0-0 tie. So we did not beat Auburn, and we did not quit the game. The basic philosophy, though, is sound.

Beat Auburn, or this season hardly existed at all.

We tried a lot of stuff last year, and lost. Auburn's offense will load up the points, can our offense and field goal kicker (9 misses) outscore them?

I'm going to go with a big fat no FranklyFrank. I think UGA will have to wait until next year before they can backdoor themselves into an SEC championship game.
