…..Here we go, Tigers! From the 35. Mason, sweeping left, and he’s close to the 25!
…..Marked down at the 26.
2nd and one. Mason, will cut and tripped at the 12!
First down in the red zone. Power left. Mason, will fight inside the ten, to the eight!
…..2nd and 7. Three wides. Mason, and we’ve got a hold. Robinson tackled the DE.
…..Another drive-killing mistake. Get at least a field goal, here, guys. No sacks.
2nd and 17. Shotgun. Throwback, who…and a pick six was dropped on the throwback attempt.
3rd and 17. Running out of time, and a false start? Or is it a timeout? Yes. Timeout.
2nd timeout of the half, 3rd and 17 coming.
…..Scoreboard update, Bama is up 31-7 on Michigan at the half. So much for how hard it is to stop Denard Robinson.
…..Here go the tigers from the gun, Will fire to Coates, too high once again.
…..In comes Parkey.
…..It’s a 36 yard attempt. It’s up, and is good! Auburn has the lead!
…..with 12:50 left in the game, Auburn takes a 19-16 lead! Come one, DEFENSE!
are you in here alone Acid?
…..Parkey to kick off, and this is a kick into the stands. Touchback.
…..Clemson out. Boyd in the pistol. Ellington, will drive for 3.
…..2nd and 6. Fake, and Boyd keeps, and he’s loose. Will finally trip up at the 42.
…..At the 44, quick out, and HIT by Bell. 4 yards.
Two backs. Boyd fakes, and he’s falling forward to the 38, looks shaky getting up.
3rd and 4. Two backs to protect. He’s gonna run, and he’s to the 30, as the ends lost contain.
…..New set of downs, Boyd leaves. Handoff Ellington, to the 26.
the cardiac kids are at it again
….Cole Stoudt. 2nd and 7. Ellington, and he just runs though Auburn to the 18. Poor tackling.
Boyd, hands to Ellington, will power to the eight. Defense looks WEAK in the middle.
Howard gets the call, and he’s to the 4, first and goal.
…..Clemson will call time.
…..It’s first and goal Clemson at the 4, 9:53 left in the game, Auburn trying to hold on to a 19-16 lead. Defense looks gassed, and confused.
is there an auto-refresh for the thread?
…..I’ll take this timeout to apologize for this thread. This slow, refresh-constantly comment system is not getting it done. We’ll try to come up with something else in the future. Meanwhile, I’ll soldier on with my Tigers!
…..Pistol, fade, it’s caught, falling down, touchdown. Interference, but no matter. It’s a clemson score.
…..Catanzaro is up and good.
With 9:17 left in the game, Auburn trails, 23-19.
…..Benton will kick off. It’s short, bray to the one, will fight over the 20, down at the 21.
…..First down Auburn. hands to Mason, for 3.
2nd and 7. Mason, he’ll get to the 27.
…..Third and 4. Shotgun. Flushed out, takes off, and he’s diving up to the 31!
…..Three wide pistol, Reverse, and Bray will lose yardage.
…..2nd and 11. Flag? No Clemson called their last timeout. Had too many men out there.
…..Here comes Auburn on 2nd and 11. Tigers with the shotgun. Fired towards Blake, too low.
…..Now it’s 3rd and long. Bad snap, Lutzenkirchen underneath, spilled way short.
6:30 left in the game, and Auburn brings Clark in. The punt is off the side, and Hopkins fair catches at the 20. 44 yard punt. Longer than it looked!
…..Ellington on the dive, and stopped for 2.
…..4 wide, pistol, quickout, and Bates with the stop for about 3.
…..Key 3rd and 5. Boyd will run, and he’s loose to the 32. Had hands on him, but couldn’t tackle.
…..We’re under 5 minutes, and only one timeout left.
…..Ellington for three up the gut.
…..2nd and 7 Clemson. Screen, Hopkins, and he’s pushed out at the 40.
…..four minutes left. 3rd and 1. Ellington, has the first down, and gashes for 6.
…..Auburn is in trouble, now.
…..Ellington, will get away, Jermaine Whitehead finally makes the tackle inside the ten.

…..Right tackle Gifford Timothy limps off.
……Boyd takes, and will keep, and he will be stopped at the one, by Trent Fisher.
…..Auburn calls its last timeout, with 1:27 left.
…..4th and goal, I think Clemson goes for it. If they don’t make it, Auburn still has to drive 99 yards for the TD.
…..Well, the kicking team is in. Strange.
…..Here’s the kick. And it’s up and good.
…..with 1:24 left in the game, Clemson takes a 26-19 lead. Auburn has no timeouts left.
…..Auburn needs a TD and and extra point to force overtime.
…..Benton to kick it off. It’s a long touchback.
…..Auburn in the gun, Frazier flushed out, thrown away.
…..2nd and 10. 3 wide. Frazer fires, and Blake has it up at the 41!
…..Frazier fumbles, and I think Prosh got it.
…..In the gun. Frazier throws away again.
…..Third and 8, 31 seconds left.
…..here we go. Frazier has time, will take a bad sack.
4th and 18. Frazier chunks it out of bounds on 4th down. that’s it.
…..And Clemson wins, 26-19.
Another good job Acid. Thanks!
…..Thank you for hanging around. It was tough for me to see what others were posting, because I was in danger of missing plays if I hit refresh.
…..Well, folks that was depressing. Two areas I had really hoped we were better were the defensive tackles, and at quarterback. Instead, we were blown off the ball much of the evening by a team with 4 new starters on the O-line.
…..Kudos to the team for hanging in there, but we just had too many mistakes, particularly on offense.
…..Grades will be up tomorrow afternoon. Need time to digest this. We’ll see if we can’t get a better comment mechanism in for next week. It was pretty tough this week.
…..War Eagle, folks. It’s great to be an Auburn Tiger.
this site is way too difficult to navigate. I can’t even view comments past the middle of the 4th quarter.
