  1. I’ve been watching the weather and wonder how rain or wet condions might affect the game or the line. Which team does a wet field favor?

  2. Good question, I have no idea. I haven’t incorporated weather patterns into my model yet, but I’m working on it for next year.

  3. I’m not sure about Alabama, but I don’t think Auburn has played in an inclement weather game all year, have we?

  4. I don’t think we have either, Walt. I would suspect that rain would give an advantage to the offenses (since they know what they want to do and don’t need to react quickly or change directions). I’d also suspect that defenses could not afford to be as aggressive because of the footing issues. My instinct would be that we may benefit more than Alabama here, unless secondary can’t stay on its feet at all 🙂

  5. I don’t think either has played in a weather game. I’m not sure it really favors anyone. They both have to play in it. Our ground game is great. Bama’s is pretty good too. Wet field takes OMac out of the game. Kid can barely keep his feet under him when it’s dry! Both have good receivers and QBs that shouldn’t be bothered by wet balls. IMO this games comes down to how well AU can shed blocks and tackle on the edge. If bamas OC has done any homework we will see richardson off tackle and lots of screens to him and julio. bama is good at running those and we pretty well suck at defending them. If we can hold our own there and get the ground game going we will win. Heard on the radio that donta hightower said they have been watching a “highlight” video on how to tackle cam. That is probably about a 30 second video clip of patrick peterson being carried into the endzone on cams back.
