Tigers seek revenge at Kentucky

I arrived in Lexington last night. Hopefully I can see a little bit more of the town today before the game. Speaking of which, here's how today's advance starts:
AUBURN, Ala. — Gus Malzahn is meticulous when reviewing game film with his players, dissecting each and every play with a discerning eye.

But it’s been hard for Auburn’s offensive coordinator to stomach going through last year’s Kentucky game, a mistake-filled 21-14 loss at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

“It’s disgusting to look at,” quarterback Cam Newton said. “We’ve been skipping plays because it’s so hard for him to even look at it. … A lot of guys are taking it personally this week.”

Auburn’s offense hit its nadir a year ago against Kentucky, the middle of a three-game swoon that took the shine off the team’s 5-0 start.

The Tigers are 5-0 again (2-0 SEC), ranked eighth in both major polls and out for revenge against Kentucky (3-2, 0-2 SEC) tonight in Lexington.

“They came into our house and beat us last year, and we’re going to try and do the same thing to them,” tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen said.

Enjoy Lexington. There are some major-league horse events there this weekend. Maybe check 'em out and give us a report?

I'm now wishing I had planned better. Could have spent three or four days up there, went to both the equestrian events and the Auburn football game and had tons of fun. Instead I'm sitting at home typing on a computer.

My Auburn education taught me better than this!

Do or do not. There is no try.

I could kick myself in the gluteus maximus for not ordering tickets to this game. Of course, had I done so, the game would have been moved to Thursday, or been a noon kickoff, and I would have had to unload said tickets.

Glad you're there to tell us all about it, AB.
