Shepard's Pie: Congratulations, Tigers!

A lot of people thought Auburn would win because of Cam Newton. Instead, my analysis detected another factor -- wanting it.

On OSN's Pre-Bowl College Kickoff, I said something that looks pretty prescient now. "I don't know which team it will be, but the winner will be whoever wants it more." I don't know where it came from -- I was just wrapping up the segment and the thought just alit onto my brain like a bird onto a branch in a sudden moment of thought-clarity. At the time I wasn't even sure what it meant. It didn't go over well on set -- OSN Analyst Reggie Greengrass said "that means literally nothing," but the thought stuck with me throughout the game. And what I saw was an Auburn team, consistently wanting it more and more until the final seconds.

So way to want, Tigers. You went out there and wanted it, and for that I want something too. To thank you.
