Auburn, LSU battle for Gulf Coast

Editor's note: Every Monday in Four Downs, we'll tally up the recent winners and losers from the football recruiting world to tip off your week in proper form. We'll set the table with the stories that need to be told and give you a leg up on the watercooler conversations around the office.

This week, LSU and Auburn have the distinction of being both winners and losers after a roller-coaster week on the recruiting trail. LSU and Auburn traded recruiting blows -- with one team coming away with two talented Alabama defenders and the other landing arguably the nation's top junior college player. Also, Michigan continues its hot streak, much to the chagrin of in-state rival Michigan State. But the biggest winner of the week has to be Kentucky after landing its signal-caller of the future.
