Normally, I have a tremendous amount of respect for one Kirk Herbstreit. He is one of the few commentators who actually knows what he is talking about when it comes to college football, but today I’m going to have to take Herbie to task.
On ESPN, Herbstreit said that the Auburn Tigers will win the SEC West this year. Now, I can understand if he said the LSU Tigers or even the Arkansas Razorbacks; that makes more sense to me, but the Auburn Tigers?!? Really, Kirk?
I know Auburn improved quite a bit last year, but how do you go from 8-5 to winning the West and facing Florida for the SEC Title? Well, here are list of reasons why Auburn won’t win the West this year.
