Prediction: Auburn 24, Vanderbilt 6

Eric JacksonCorrespondent IOctober 4, 2008

First, a little background. I’m not a Vanderbilt fan. I graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The only thing I despise about Vanderbilt is the tendancy of their fans to beat you over the head incessantly with the “academic requirements” at VU. Hey Vandy fans: We heard you the first million times. Let it go.

So with that being said, Vanderbilt’s run to 4-0 is great for them. I’m happy for them, seriously. But it ends today. Let’s take a look at their record thus far:

08/28/08 at Miami (Oh) - W, 34-13
09/04/08 South Carolina - W, 24-17
09/13/08 Rice - W, 38-21
09/20/08 at Mississippi - W, 23-17

Am I missing something here? To hear some tell it, Vanderbilt is a football juggernaut. Now hear something you’re not being told…LAST in DEFENSE in the SEC (despite playing TERRIBLE oponents) and LAST in OFFENSE in the SEC. Auburn has allowed one running touchdown…all YEAR.

Make way…the chickens are coming home to roost.
