Here we go again!

♫ It's the most wonderful time of the year! ♫

The sights. The sounds. The smells. FOOTBALL SEASON is upon us!

Kickoff cannot come soon enough, I tell you.

Defending National Champions has a lovely and entirely unfamiliar ring to it, but, trust me, I am under no delusions about what this season could look like for my beloved Auburn Tigers. Unlike some of our peers  (**clears throat**), it is not the Auburn way to spout off lofty preseason predictions, because really... WHO KNOWS what will happen?! That's the beauty of this time of year. ANYTHING is possible.

On this eve of the first college football Saturday of 2011,
  • I hope that our boys have their heads right and are focused on what matters.
  • I hope our coaches can see the possibilities and will find ways to inspire excellence.
  • I hope Auburn students and alumni are ready to represent the place that we love so much with the honor and pride that we've always had.
  • I hope Cam Newton and Nick Fairly are proud of where they came from and will remember that they are Auburn men forever.
  • I hope Mr. Penny is adequately conditioned for A LOT of pushups.
  • I hope to prove all of the critics wrong.
  • I hope that Danny Sheridan will eventually realize that no one is listening anymore.
  • I hope that Finebaum will take the high road for once.
  • I hope that SBS, Evans, Schad, and the rest of them will actually get the facts (if there are any) on a story before reporting it.
  • I hope that Jesse Palmer will consider buying shirts that are one size larger.
  • I hope ESPN will incorporate subtitles for Dr. Lou.
  • I hope Texas A&M knows what they are getting themselves into.
  • I hope I never see the "look at my wrestling belt" move after a big play.
  • I hope the next 4 months are filled with amazing highs, minimal lows, and just enough surprises.
  • I hope I can get some sleep tonight...but it's not likely.
