Auburn down two LBs for LSU game

ESPN reports that Auburn has suspended two of an already thin group on linebackers for the first three games of the season. Of course, the third game in that season just happens to be against the LSU Tigers.

Auburn was the overwhelming choice out of the SEC Media Days to win the SEC West. A large part of that equation had to do with LSU's conference road schedule which has them traveling to Auburn, Florida and Tennessee.

Sept. 16 looms large and it is one of those games, if not THE game, that serves as a barometer to how effective Les Miles is as the head coach at LSU. These are the type of games you must find a way to win as the underdog on the road. Last season's game in Alabama doesn't count, LSU should have won that game, Auburn is expected to win this one.

I know our colleague Jay G. Tate, who covers Auburn for The Montgomery Advertiser, was "shocked" to see Auburn voted as the easy favorite to win the West; we'll see what he thinks of Auburn's chances now.
