FSU has been skirting by too much this season.  They are overdue.

And your ESPN Classic slate of past Iron Bowls to be aired this week...

Thanksgiving Day:

6 AM - 1997: Auburn 18, Alabama 17 (Bruce Arians won't be allowed to forget this one...)
8 AM - 1982: Auburn 23, Alabama 22 (Bo goes over the top...)
10 AM - 1986: Auburn 21, Alabama 17 (Lawyer Tillman reverse...)
12 PM - 1983: Auburn 23, Alabama 20 (Bo runs for 256...)
2 PM - 1984: Alabama 17, Auburn 15 (Bo runs ... the wrong way...)
4 PM - 1985: Alabama 25, Auburn 23 (The Kick...)

Black Friday:

6 AM - 1994: Alabama 21, Auburn 14 (Last IB with two unbeatens...)
8 AM - 1995: Auburn 31, Alabama 27 (If instant replay existed back in '95, we would have won this game...got hosed...)
10 AM - 1996: Alabama 24, Auburn 23 (Riddle cuts back to the middle...my very favorite childhood Iron Bowl memory...)
12 PM - 2003: Auburn 28, Alabama 23 (Go crazy, Cadillac...)

And the SEC Network will air last year's IB multiple times this week. Forgive me if I don't tune in for that one.

At least they're showing victories for both teams this year. Last year they showed like 5 Auburn wins and only one for 'Bama. Didn't even show the '85 game.

Dan, we went right down the field on a perfect drive filled with accurate third down passing and power running and went right down Georgia's throat for a TD. Then made two consecutive stops on defense. We couldn't have started better and we got killed.

Especially in BDS, energy is gonna favor Alabama. It's gonna come down to who executes in the 10-15 biggest plays of the game.

I meant when UGA punched y'all in the 2nd quarter and you never punched back. Maybe it doesn't necessarily have to be the beginning of the game. I only said the beginning because that's been the trend with our team.

The biggest key to this game, imo, is to jump all over them early. This is one of those seasons - for Alabama - where it seems like the first quarter tells the tale in each game. Our fastest starts (Florida and A&M) led to our two most lopsided conference wins of the season, while another led to a victory against the No. 1 team in the country. Our slow starts (Ole Miss, Arkansas and LSU) ended up being fights for 60 minutes. The Tennessee game is the exception to this trend, as we had a hot start against them and sorta slumped our way through the second half.

What I saw in Auburn's loss to Georgia was a team that was so demoralized when they got down that they essentially had no fight left in them to even muster an attempt at a comeback.

If 'Bama can jump out to a quick lead, I do not expect a repeat of 2010. Instead, I think Auburn's spirit would be crushed, knowing what has happened in their last two SEC games and with 'Bama having all sorts of momentum. I'm not saying it'll be a blowout, but it COULD be fairly lopsided *IF* Alabama races out to a fast start.

On the other hand, if Auburn jumps on top first, I think they'll finally feel a sense of purpose/confidence again, and this one could be a similar feel to last year's game. Back-and-forth, tense for 60 minutes.

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.
