September 1 — Washington at Mercedes-Benz Stadium
This surprisingly non-Clemson opponent reminds me of that video where Hitler thinks Boise is in Iowa. Ha! Who can blame him? The internet was a slightly different thing back then, less far removed from the hands of Al Gore.
September 8 — Alabama State
We used to gripe about sending the cupcake money out of state. Jay made the moves to keep some of it local. Thank you, Jay.
September 15 — La-State
Our new AD—whether Tommy Tuberville or whoever—needs to get on moving this game to Baton Rouge. We need to win there, man—the sooner the better.
September 22 — Arkansas
I miss Bret already. He was a lot of fun to beat.
September 29 — Southern Mississippi
I love playing the Golden Eagles. Imagine a school in Mississippi that has the word Southern in their name; as if Mississippi isn’t Southern enough. I know that’s not the point.
Still, you don’t get any more historically intriguing in the United States of Conference than USM. We’re talking about a team that once beat us with Brett Favre. I’m wearing Wranglers right now.
October 6 — at Starkville
Seems I remember hearing Dan Mullen finally went to Florida. That’s good; I guess. Auburn seems unbeatable at Starkville, except when I’m in attendance. I’ve learned my lesson.
October 13 — Tennessee
The Vols are down. Let’s keep it that way.
October 20 — at Ole Miss
Back to Oxfordtown. The Black Bears hired the guy who emotionally won the Egg Bowl after their rival’s quarterback’s ankle got turned the wrong way, theoretically depriving us all of either Les Miles’ return to the SEC or Mike Leach’s long delayed entry. We shouldn’t forgive them. No one should.
October 27 — Bye
November 3 — Texas A&M
We finally get another crack at Jimbo Fisher. Let’s make it count.
November 10 — at Georgia
Back to Athenstown. Let’s play ’em more like we did at Auburn; nothing like we did in Atlanta.
November 17 — Liberty
November 24 — at Alabama
Man, I love winning in Tuscaloosa. It’s been a while. Here’s hoping the stakes will be the same in 2018 as the last time we did.
