I'm not willing (or able) to discuss the annual disappointment, also known as the Braves in the Playoffs, but Mac over at Braves Journal has a great assessment of what the Braves need to do in the off-season.
Now that baseball season has ended (for me), I can turn my championship hopes to my beloved Auburn Tigers. Auburn has surprised a lot of people, beaten some pretty good teams, and taken care of business against the Louisiana Techs of the world. Jason Campbell has done a 360 this season, finally materializing as the quarterback everyone talked about when he came in as a Freshman. He's made the Auburn offense a multi-dimensional weapon with Cadillac Williams and two other high-quality backs filling out a solid running game. Georgia looks to be the biggest threat left on their schedule, but no Auburn fan ever discounts that final regular season game against that other school from Alabama. Then there's the SEC Championship Game and a possible rematch against LSU, Tennessee, or even Georgia, or a possible match-up against Florida. If all goes well, this team could very well grab one of the top two BCS spots thanks to strength of schedule. This could make for a very Happy New Year.
I'm hoping I didn't just jinx it.
