You know what? I'm not even mad at all. Charles Barkley is the worst at making predictions. The guy simply is wrong all the time, no matter how entertaining he is and how much I love him. But this week? I have to hate him. Rules are rules. He's always the face of Auburn athletics. He's always sitting at games and always on talking about Auburn this and Auburn that.
But to say you're not worried about Kentucky? That has me ready to take the Kentucky line no matter what it drops to. His own coach is scared of Kentucky. He's talked about how good the team is this year. And sure Auburn is historically better. Sure, they've won the last two games, but only by a combined 6 points. This isn't a regular Kentucky team. They have arguably the best offensive line in the SEC and a top-5 offensive line in the country. They return a quarterback who won 10 games in his first year. Bo Nix wishes he could have done what Terry Wilson did his first year in the SEC.
So this is a blog warning Charles Barkley to watch what he says. I genuinely like the guy and I don't want Auburn fans turning on him when Kentucky pulls the upset. Correction: when the No. 23 ranked Kentucky Wildcats pull the upset. Getting Auburn early without fans? This is a recipe for an upset. Run the ball. Run the ball. Run the ball. Put pressure on Bo Nix and feast.
See you on Saturday, Chuck.
