Check out this guy from theauburner.com predicitons for the Alabama vs. Vandy and the Auburn vs. USF game.

Auburn vs. USF
This game will have bandwagon fans slowly regaining faith in Auburn, as Auburn makes far fewer mistakes, and rallies off the intensity shown at the end of last week’s game against KSU. Auburn wins 24-6.

Alabama vs Vandy
As much as I love Vandy (If the SEC were a family friendly sitcom, Vandy would be Steve Urkel, Screech, or whoever the lovable, but overall pathetic goof is), and as much as I hate Bama, I'm afraid that... Vandy wins! Unbiased prediction: Vandy pulls of the first of many 'upsets' against Bama this season 24-21.

Here's a link to where he made these predicitons:

Here's his email...Email him and tell him what you think of his predicting ability. HAHA RTR

Well I got a reply! I actually used a email address that is meant for spam so I am good. Anyway here is what I said:

I saw your prediction's about the usf/au game and the tide/vandy game. I am very happy that you were wrong on both accounts.

ROLL TIDE!

And now His reply:

Haha. I'm glad to see my propensity for inaccurate predictions amuses
you. I'll pretty much pick bama to lose every game for the rest of
the season and for Auburn to finish 11-1, so I'll look forward to
hearing from you again. WAR EAGLE

Just FYI, the Auburner is a satire paper/site. It is meant to be funny, much like the M-Zone that Michigan has.

So he makes game predicitons that aren't supposed to come true? No he doesn't.

No, he makes predictions that are supposed to be funny and "homer-ish." IOW, he will pick Alabama to lose no matter what. He will pick Auburn to win no matter what.

Yeah I got my reply also. In the first email I said:

fewer mistakes? Where is that bandwagon of fans now? Great predictions buddy. Maybe you should quit while you're ahead...Go BULLS! RTR

He replied:

Well I was just playing the odds. Usually when predicting a Bama
loss, they come through for me, and Auburn usually wins. Yesterday
was a pretty odd day. Needless to say, we have been eating our fair
share of humble pie over here, a cupcake or two would sound pretty
nice right now, would you care to share some of yours? War Eagle and
thanks for writing in!
Love,
Ryan


I replied to him:
No problem. What is your valued prediction for the Mississippi State game?

What do you guys not understand about that site being satirical?

satire

A work of literature that mocks social conventions, another work of art, or anything its author thinks ridiculous.
