Auburn vs. Samford, Open Thread.

War Eagle, everybody! It’s a college football gameday once again in November. Tonight, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Samford Bulldogs in the friendly confines of Jordan Hare Stadium. This season has been a long, tough road for the Tigers, and after six games in a row against foes from the toughest conference in the nation, a bit of a break is certainly due. Samford is a team that know how to play hard and win the tough games, but they’ll be unlikely to be able to match up with Auburn.
This game will kick off at 6:00 PM Central Time, and it will be televised on ESPN-U. Today will be a temperate, comfortable fall day for football on the plains. Temperatures should fall through the 50s during the game. It’s jacket weather, but not like the arctic blasts we’ve had on recent weekends. The sky will be mostly cloudy, with a slight chance of a shower by the 4th quarter. Those folks driving back west after the game, people headed back towards Montgomery or Birmingham will likely run into widespread rain, as a major storm front rolls through during the late evening hours.
As always, feel free to participate and enjoy this thread. We’ll be in and out all morning, and after a 4 week hiatus, I’ll be back doing a play by play for this game. I have certainly enjoyed attending a lot of games this season, but I will be glad to be back in front of the television this week. What I miss most when I attend in person is that I don’t really get to see much of other games around the SEC and the nation. Tonight, we’ll celebrate the return of Auburn legend Pat Sullivan to Jordan Hare Stadium, and watch the Tigers beat the Bulldogs. War Eagle, folks!

After eleven weeks, the numbers aren't changing all that much. Most teams have played a fair cross section of both divisions, out of conference teams of various ability and some key interdivision rivals and they all point to the same key facts: Auburn's offense has been the best in the league and, while heavily maligned, the Tiger defense has been moderate to good. The combination of those two factors place the Tigers solidly in ...Read Full Story
