LSU Tigers Takes On Auburn Superman, Cam Newton
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

staton1Researchers still have not determined how LSU (7-0) is still undefeated. But the Tigers challenge unbeaten Auburn (7-0) on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in Jordan-Hare Stadium for first place in the SEC West.

Arkansas passed for 428 yards in losing to the War Eagles last Saturday. Is that going to make it easier for Tigers quarterbacks Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson?

You may also remember that Jefferson had a good game against Auburn last season in a 31-10 Tigers victory, completing 21-of-31 passes for 241 yards and a pair of touchdowns (with believe it or sneer, no interceptions).



Of course the main reason to back LSU in this one is the Tigers defense, third in the nation and first in the conference. Opponents are averaging only 14.4 point per game this season against LSU.

But if anybody can unlock a defense it's Auburn Superman Cam Newton. The 6-foot-5, 250--pound quarterback is seemingly unstoppable (he reminds me of Archie Manning at Ole Miss).

Has Les Miles done what no other coach has done: Figure out a way to stop Newton. No one has stopped him yet, but this is the fastest, most physical defense Auburn has faced. LSU can mix blitzes and apply pressure..

Prediction: LSU won't need the five points as the Bengals win this one in an upset.

Other College weekend college predictions: South Florida +7 1/2 over Cincinnati;  UTEP -10 over Tulane;  Notre Dame - 6 `/2 over Navy; Ohio State -24 over Purdue; Alabama -17 over Tennessee;  Georgia -3 over Kentucky;  Mississippi State -21 over UAB; Iowa -7 over Wisconsin; Miami -7 over North Carolina;  South Carolina -12 over Vanderbilt; Missouri +3 over Oklahoma (best bet); and Ole Miss +9 1/2 over Arkansas.



LSU coach Les Miles said putting a "spy" on Auburn quarterback Cam Newton is not the answer. Miles said in Wednesday's SEC teleconference, that concentrating on him would upset the balance of his defense and allow other players to hurt the Tigers; effort. "When he dishes the ball, when he throws it or hands it off, it's a very talented group."...Miles on being called 'lucky": "Luck is usually the product of hard work. I prefer to be lucky. That's met with some earnest preparation and some hard work. Guys that get lucky, maybe they work hard. I kind enjoy that. I hope it continues."...My thoughts in passing: Some 98 per cent of the time I'm right. Why worry about the other half?...The cynics are right 11 of 10 times...

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
