Is Auburn the worst 10-1 SEC team in history?


Don't get me wrong, being 10-1 in the SEC is elite status. It's like asking who is the worst Hall of Fame MLBer ( Bill Mazeroski?) - it's an incredible accomplishment to even be in the MLB HoF, but sometimes it's fun to wonder who's the worst of them.

But this Auburn team, I sat there in the rain and watched them up close and personal in Tiger Stadium. I felt like they were a team deserving of a rank in the 20-25 range; average to above average SEC but not elite. Their RB's were getting 5-6 yards a pop up the middle but nothing that TCU didn't do against us. The defense looked a little soft up front against the run but had good athletes like AU always does.

I just think this year in the SEC, there is Bama, then there's about 8 teams there are pretty even. Auburn is in that group but has been fortunate to win some close games, such that their record makes them sound better than a typical 10-1 SEC team actually is.

LSU 07 was the worst 10-1 team...they proved it by losing to Arky.

re: Is Auburn the worst 10-1 SEC team in history?


we've improved dramatically since the LSU game

that being said we are weak in the middle of our defense and our passing offense is shaky due to low WR depth and inconsistency at QB. Still though, there have probably been worse 10-1 teams.

I want us to be the worst 13-1 team in history.

I want to win the next 3 on a series of really bad calls by the officials.

Most one-dimensional 10-1 team? Sure.

Worst 10-1 team? Meh.

I would rather be the worst 10-1 SEC team in history than be 2011 LSU.

One thing you've gotta be optimistic about regarding Gus... AU has definitely improved as the year has gone on.

and you're basing that purely on the 4th game of the season, our first road game, in death valley, in the rain, Nick Marshall had been in Auburn all of what, 8 weeks? less than that

yeah, that's fair

I'd rather be any team than 2011 LSU. That whole postseason deal took the life out of our program.

I think it was the 11-0 1992 Bama team that everyone kept saying was the worse ever (worse 9-0, worse 10-0, worse 11-0)...had a lot of close games against average teams...

Very bad team according to the experts... had ZERO chance against the Mighty MIAMI... Alabama destroyed Miami in the Sugar Bowl and won the Nattie...

In the SEC you are what your record says you are..

Basing it on what I saw in person, plus watching them on TV. I just think AU '13 is a very good team but when I think of 10-1 SEC I think elite.

Maybe worst coaching job in the History of the SEC, but as far as team goes, the LSU 07 team was very good. Coaching lost those two games. Plus, after 3 seasons of seeing it, Pelini had no clue how to stop the Wildcat. It was like LSU was playing 8 on 11.
