Each week during the 2017 season, BH will bring you the best that the Auburn message boards have to offer across the internet. This week, we find Auburn banging the drum of this year to be ‘the year.’

Ah, football season has arrived. With it, a renewed sense of hope and pride for your team. Unless you are Clemson, you are hoping to be better than last year. As such, our neighbors (aka enemies) across the State of Alabama have brought their preseason predictions that are clearly unbiased and reasonable (Hint: Not really).

As will be the standard each week, these posts are taken from various message board sites and their names will be stricken from the record for privacy reasons. We’re not unreasonable people. We also want to preserve the context of the words spoken, so the spelling and grammar are as is.

To start, how about a thread of record predictions?

"Get your season results prediction in now. I won’t post a record (we play too many good teams) but I think we make the playoffs"

"15-0.Anything less is uncivilized"

"14-1. Those Mercer Bears catch us overlooking them"

"15-0 Auburn has the best team in the sec and the nation. (bowing emojis inserted here)"

"15-1.The loss will be in a post season exhibition game. After dominating the CFB world and being undeniably crowned tGOAT, a game is set against the Patriots. AU loses in OT.It will later be discovered that the Pats were deflating footballs. Again."

He thinks he’s so funny.

Moving on to Depth Charts!

"Those ORs going to be skrong this year"

"LOVE the OLLove the WR coreLove the front 7 defensively, and unlike the rest of you, i’m glad Cowart is in there. Maybe he will get a chance to turn it around on the field.I’m hoping Jamel Dean locks down the other corner spot for Javaris can play nickel almost exclusively. His body type seems perfect for the spot.Can’t wait to watch Jeff Holland wreck shite all year.oh, and frick Clemson"

"Yeah I’ve always thought it was stupid to release your depth chart"

The message boards were very heavy on firing Athletic Director Jay Jacobs

"Your 1/2 right. Fire JJ, hire someone without Auburn ties. Hire someone with AD experience. Why do you think Tubs would do a good job?????"

"“….some of y’all are stupid.”You’re rightWe should go gene chizikDo they have search firms for AD’s? *post is then followed by three dancing bananas for whatever reason(All posts from SECRant.com)Next: Tuesday Practice Report and Injury ConcernsTune in next week, where we will likely see some overreaction from Auburn’s big game against the Georgia State Eagles. Published on 08/30/2017 at 10:58 AM EDTLast updated on 08/30/2017 at 6:16 AM EDT “….some of y’all are stupid.”Do they have search firms for AD’s? *post is then followed by three dancing bananas for whatever reason"
