Odds are against Auburn in Saturday’s Iron Bowl

What if they held the Iron Bowl Saturday and one team didn’t show up? Seriously, should Auburn even bother? Wouldn’t it make more sense for Auburn’s “student-athletes” to stay home and go to the school library? In a bad economy, wouldn’t it be more prudent to save the bus fare from Lee County and use it for something more meaningful?
Others have wondered if it’s true that Nick Saban has considered resting his starters against Auburn so nobody would get hurt before the SEC title game.Or will he simply let the seniors play for a series or two so they can get a standing ovation from the adoring crowd?

What chance does Auburn have of pulling the upset? Two shots: Slim and none.
