2010 Regular Season Record: 13-0
Preseason Rank: No. 23
This was the easiest team to pick for me. Although I don't think Cam Newton will be a good pro QB, you can't argue how dominant he was in his one season at Auburn.
This season, there is a distinct possibility that a true freshman QB could get playing time (Kiehl Frazier). Tell me the last time a team like that went undefeated (or even had a bowl-bound season)?
The Tigers do have some great talent returning in the likes of Mike Dyer and speedster Ontario McCaleb at RB, but WR Darvin Adams made a mistake leaving early, and it is going to hurt Auburn as they are left with somewhat of an empty cupboard at WR.
Their 2010 National Championship has and still is paying dividends for them on the recruiting trail, but we won't see most of those players for another year or two.
Aubie falls at Clemson, at South Carolina, at Arkansas, at LSU, vs Florida and vs tree-killing rival, Bama.
Projected 2011 Regular Season Record: 6-6
