I’m not going to pretend that this will be enjoyable. It may not be over quickly either, but we did this before the Georgia and Alabama games last year, and it seemed to work. It’s time to draw the poison from a wound to prevent any deep-rooted lingering effects from the initial injury.
We should’ve done this a long time ago.
With as much fun as the win over Georgia in Auburn was last November, it quickly came crashing down when Kerryon Johnson got hurt against Alabama, and he was clearly hampered the next weekend in Atlanta. With injuries to Tre Williams and Carlton Davis, Auburn’s defense took a hit as well and couldn’t stop the Bulldogs late, leading to a 28-7 defeat.

This game was like many more across the state line for Auburn. The Tigers scored first and ended up losing by double digits in the end.
