Samuel’s Intangibles: Ole Miss Edition

Each week columnist Sam Lasseter shares from his unique perspective and predicts the outcome for Saturday’s game.

The season is progressing quite nicely for the Auburn Tigers. The defense is rather impressive, making Auburn the only team in the country not to allow more than 14 points in a game.

These young Tigers are making a name for themselves. They are really gelling and becoming the “Steele” Curtain defense—a defense we haven’t seen since the time of Wayne Hall at Auburn. I feel Deshaun and the gang will continue to make Auburn fans proud throughout the season.

On the offensive side it appears Jarrett and the boys are starting to click. If we can get healthy, we’ll become very hard to stop! Here’s hoping Pettway, Martin and Johnson can heal up for the stretch run in the SEC.

As for this week, we are playing Ole Miss, They are certainly going to be smarting after the 66–3 loss in Tuscaloosa.

Shea Patterson is a good QB that has some good receivers around him, but I don’t see them lighting it up at Jordan-Hare Saturday morning. I do have much respect for Ole Miss, but I just don’t see them keeping it close against the Tigers of Auburn.

The Ole Miss game is always a special one for me. The last time I went to an Auburn game with my parents was the Ole Miss game on September 2, 1995.

The Tigers won that game 46-13 and I expect much the same this weekend. War Eagle!

Auburn 45 — Ole Miss 10

P.S. Auburn will remain the only team in the country not to allow more than 14 points in a game this season after the match up with the Rebels, thanks to powerful play from all our outstanding defenders!
