    I saw this story last year with a team that wasn't as good as Auburn. Yeah,yeah, different teams, different season. Still the same system and same undersized DL for Oregon.
    Because Oregon's 2009 defense was in the same stratosphere as the 2010 defense, right? Oh, well, it's Oregon, so they have to be the same. Sound logic.

      My logic is that I think they get steamrolled.

      The same logic that I used to assay that when UM was OMFG tearing up every offensive stat in the book early this season when they were undefeated and I thought that they would be lucky to get to .500 in the Big10. It's all about the competition, and I simply don't think Oregon has played a very good offense this season. Nor have they played a decent defense.

      Past statistics are interesting, but do not determine the future wrt game outcomes.

      It's about matchups and the ability for a unit to execute their gameplan. And I do not think Oregon's various units match up well against Auburn.

      I think Auburn has the talent to shut down TheMichael. And if that happens, I don't think the rest of Oregon's offense can pick up the slack.

      I also don't think Oregon can stop a giant, fast, running QB that can also pass. That also has a pretty damn good complementary cast.

      I could be plenty wrong, that's why they play the games. Going down the statistical wormhole to determine outcome is not an approach I agree with. If that is your MO, fine.

        I just dont see Oregon's offense dying down so much that Auburn will be able to come back from an early deficit.

        [b]Oregon's offense is a little bit of a different breed.[/b[

        Edit: i do not think either team will jump out on the other, i think this is going to be a shootout.
        Like the 15 they put up against Cal? They don't have Cam Newton. I expect Cam to bulldoze oregon's defense all day

            not to mention that Oregon gets killed in the time of possession every week, because they score so fast. They are bound to give up some yards somewhere right?

            If Auburn starts like they did against South Carolina i see them having a shot, but if they start slow like they notoriously done, i dont see them stickin with the ducks.
            Auburn is going to need to score quickly in the game I agree. Oregon has been outscored in the first quarter if you don't include their two shutouts against New Mexico and Portland State. Obviously the Ducks can play from behind like they have in the past, but Auburn needs to put points up before Oregon's offense starts rolling.

            It should be a fun game to watch.

              True, but TCU has Andy Dalton. Beat that.

                Ive used that argument before also, but the fact of the matter is that if you think Auburn can get behind early and expect to play catch up, it probably isnt going to happen.

                  How about Scott Tolzien, who just won the Unitas award over Dalton.

                    im also going to use this arguement. if you think oregon goes behind early and expect to play catch up, it probably isnt going to happen.

                      Screw the Unitas Award. Andy Dalton is a ginger.

                          Not really helping your argument.

                            It does. Gingers are awesome.

                            • Alshon Jeffrey got 192 yds. & 2 TDs & Julio Jones got 199 yds. & a TD vs. the Auburn pass defense.

                              Those stats will not be lost on Chip Kelly's coaching staff preparing for this game.

                              • I don't think it will be as high scoring as we think. I think like 28-24 will be the final score. I think that Auburn will try to slow the game down and Cam might get the most carries he's had all season chipping away on the defense. Not a great showcase for his NFL talents but they are more concernced with the W.
