Hopefully the Georgia coaches saw the successful touchdown pass from Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu to Julio Jones this past weekend

While trick plays are usually frowned upon by straight-shooters like Kirby Smart, it may be time to empty out the playbook and show Auburn some things no one has seen this year. If Smart and Chaney have some halfback throws, Statue of Liberty plays, or hook-and-ladders lingering around which haven’t been used, this may be the week to pull them out.

Auburn has lived and died by unexpected trickeration in the past, and it would be fitting for Georgia to ice away an SEC Championship by turning the tables on the plainsmen.

In short, just be early 2000s Boise State for a day.
