Why the Auburn Tigers Will Win the BCS National Championship Game: A Five Paragraph Essay


This is the first in a series of assigned Five Paragraph Essays.  Each essay was composed without outside resources and in a timeframe of fifteen minutes.  It’s just like the SAT, except it’s shorter, more fun, bears no significance and I’m 26 years old.  To make things interesting I’m going to write like I’m in high school.

Today’s Topic: Why Auburn will win the BCS National Championship Game.

Check back for the following Essays:

  • Wednesday: Why Florida State will win the BCS National Championship Game.
  • Thursday: Why no one will win the BCS National Championship Game.
  • Friday: Why everyone will win the BCS National Championship Game.
  • Saturday: Who will win the BCS National Championship Game?

 

The Auburn Tigers and the Florida State Seminoles square off for the final BCS National Championship Game on Monday, January 6, 2014.  For those who are fans of top-ranked teams playing each other on the football field, this game has it all – at least as far as is customary in a two-team collegiate game.  Florida State enters the game undefeated with a 13-0 record and the nation’s top ranking, while the Tigers come into the game with one lone blemish and a No. 2 ranking.  Despite Florida State’s advantage in the polls, Auburn will win this game because the Tigers have more talent than any team Florida State has seen, a better coaching staff than the Seminoles and a history of surviving against elite teams.

If one were to look up statistics one would undoubtedly discover that Florida State is a talented team.  Recruiting class rankings and NFL Draft projections would show this much.  Digging a little deeper would prove Auburn is equally talented, but more importantly, Auburn is significantly more talented than any team Florida State has played this season.  The Seminoles won the ACC Championship by defeating a Duke team that has less talent than most respectable high school programs.  FSU’s signature win this year came against a Clemson team that was so bad it only defeated a four-loss Georgia team by three points at home.  Auburn has loads of talent and that will be a problem for Florida State.

That problem will be compounded by the fact that Auburn’s coaching staff is significantly better than that of Florida State.  Gus Malzahn is a proven winner (even at Arkansas State) and Florida State’s head coach shares a name with a deep-sea angling boat.  A guy named Jimbo Fisher won’t stand a chance against a coach like Malzahn who consistently crafts championship-caliber offenses.  As a head coach, Fisher averages more losses per season than Malzahn.  Losing games matters.

And losing games is not something that Malzahn’s team has done a lot of lately.  Despite taking on three consecutive Top 25 teams to close out the season, the Auburn Tigers did not fold.  Auburn defeated Georgia in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry before squashing Alabama’s dreams in the Iron Bowl and handling Missouri in the greatest conference in the world’s championship game.  Florida State, meanwhile, was taking on the likes of lowly Idaho, Florida and Duke.

Gridiron competition has been said to be a game of inches.  More often than not, however, it’s a game of players, coaches and experience.  Auburn holds an edge in all three of those categories.  Accordingly, the Tigers will win National Championship.

That’s all I got/

  1. Good article man. I’m not as convinced as you are that Auburn will win, but I found what you had to say was very interesting. I don’t know if the FSU defence can limit the Tiger O, but it would be fair to say that Auburn will have their hands full facing the Noles O as well.

  2. You forgot the part where they made a deal with the devil
