Auburn -26.5 over Louisiana-Monroe,
7:00 pm EDT, Saturday August 30, 2008...This
is one of the first games I circled as soon as lines came out as
added games for a couple reasons. One, I think we get some added
value because everyone is remembering how Monroe went to Bama on
November 17th last year and came out with a win. Two, Auburn brought
in a new offensive coordinator, Tony Franklin who is adding a spread
offense that is sure to shake some points out of a sometimes quiet
Auburn offense. Franklin came in for the bowl game against Clemson
last year and reeled off a 23-20 win to a good Clemson bunch. If he
can do that in one game, I am excited to see what he can do with a
whole summer of practice under his and the offenses' belt Auburn
returns 15 starters including the whole offensive line. The QB
situation has not been decided as of writing this but reports say
that both Soph. QB Kodi Burns and JC transfer Chris Todd will get to
play. Auburn has a group of running backs led by Ben Tate who rushed
for 903 yards and 8 TDs last year while Brad Lester went for 530 and
3 tds. Auburn's defense has 7 guys coming back and a new defensive
coordinator in Paul Rhoads as Will Muschamp left for Texas.
Troublesome Tray Blackmon returns healthy and hopefully
suspension-free to anchor the Defense-He had 45 tackles but missed 3
games and played on a bad knee all year.
