Late August 2004 - The Summer Olympics had just ended, a Russian-named hurricane was bearing down on the gulf coast, and Auburn opened the season with Louisiana-Monroe. Auburn won 31-0, and finished the season 13-0
Late August 2008 - The Summer Olympics have just ended, a Russian-named hurricane is bearing down on the Gulf Coast, and Auburn opens the season Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.
Prediction? What else: Auburn, 31 - Louisiana-Monroe, 0
And since I'll be at the beach next Friday, let me predict the Auburn vs. Southern Mississississippippi Game.
Auburn, 35 - Southern Miss, 10 - Brett Favre, 7
War Damn Eagle!
