National Championship Prediction 2014:
1972 Auburn (10-1) The Amazins
2014 Auburn (13-1) Get on the Gus Bus
By Tommy Eden
The Tigers wound up No. 5 in the AP, beating four Top 25 teams, including Florida State. The only loss came in Week 5 at LSU 35-7. While the signature win was the "Punt, Bama, Punt" upset that denied unbeaten Alabama a shot at the national title. Sounds familiar? That year we beat Florida State and this is the program we bought. A Phil Neel Classic! That year the Tigers went on to whip Florida State. Sounds familiar too, doesn't it? On that Monday I remember seeing several of the players in my classes with bruises from a brutal game. 1972 and 2014 have both been years filled with wonder and many surprises such as "Prayer in Jordan Hare" and "Kick6" What a season of blessings for all Auburn Fans! War Eagle!
