Some Iron Bowl 2014 Videos, Plus My Iron Bowl 2014 Predictions


Picture1dfvd

Tonight, most of the state of Alabama will pause, and watch ESPN for the annual Iron Bowl game.  This year, the Auburn Tigers travel to Bryant-Denny Stadium to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide.  And if you think Auburn’s season is already over, think again.  They would love to end the championship hopes of Alabama, but it will be a very tough task to do that.  We all should remember that Kick Six at the end of last year’s Iron Bowl.  I don’t think you will see a dramatic ending like last year tonight, but we will see!

So, to get you ready for the big game, I am including some cool videos for you to see!  The first video from the YouTube channel SEC Shorts is an Iron Bowl office feud.  Yep, this happens often in Alabama on Iron Bowl week!

The second video from the YouTube channel Kyle Burger and Alabama’s 13 features Kyle talking to little kids about the Iron Bowl.  These kids learn from their parents fast!

And this last video from the YouTube channel Saturday Down South features a very good trailer for the upcoming Iron Bowl

So, what will happen tonight?  Well, I think both teams are going to start off slow.  Judging by how slow both Alabama and Auburn started last week during their home games, don’t be surprised if the score was 0-0 at the end of the first quarter.  Both offenses of Alabama and Auburn are capable of scoring, quickly.  So, the factors you should look forward too are the defenses of Alabama and Auburn, and which team turns the ball over the most.  So, after doing some thinking, this is my 2014 Iron Bowl prediction!

Iron Bowl 2014 Prediction

Yep, even though I am an Auburn fan, I believe Alabama has more manpower and weapons on their team to win tonight.  Everyone on the Alabama team remembers what happened one year ago today.  They are going to make sure that does not happen again tonight.  So, I expect to see Alabama win tonight by a final score of 31-24.  Yes, Auburn does have a shot to win tonight in Tuscaloosa.  But they must play the most flawless and perfect game of their season tonight, while dealing with the Alabama home crowd.  I think they can do it, but I also think the Alabama team will wear them down.

No matter if you are an Alabama or Auburn fan, enjoy the game tonight on ESPN!

Sunday Discussion: The Miracle Auburn Iron Bowl Win


Geek Alabama Discussion

I was watching the 2013 Iron Bowl on Saturday like many other people across Alabama were.  I thought Alabama was going to have their way and win the game again until the last minute of the game.  First, Auburn scored a touchdown to tie the game.  Then Alabama got the ball back and got to mid-field.  Nick Saban lobbied the officials to put 1 second back on the clock, and the rest is history.  Yes folks, one second can mean everything in football!

Kudos for Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers for winning the 2013 Iron Bowl.  Most sports analysts in Alabama picked Alabama to win the game.  But a few did pick Auburn in the upset, including me.  I had a feeling early Saturday morning that somehow Auburn was going to pull off the upset.  Then I made my latest Southern Geek video, and the rest is history!

I need to let you know about this, on Monday December 9th, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn will be speaking at the TV 24 Pigskin Roundup All Star Banquet at Word Alive Church in Oxford, AL.  If you want to see the coach fresh off the SEC Championship Game, tickets are $20 each.  To get tickets, call 256-831-4624 or visit their offices on US 78 East in Oxford.  Go to their Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/WEACTV24

Congrats Auburn for then crazy win.  The entire state was shocked by the final result!  I hope the Auburn Tigers will bring the BCS Crystal Ball back to Alabama once again.  But if Florida State and Ohio State are in the BCS Championship Game, I hope Ohio State wins since I am from Ohio.  I will leave you with some crazy fan reactions from the game!
