A Battle of Eagles!

Auburn vs. Georgia Southern Open Thread

     War Eagle, everybody! This evening marks Auburn’s opening game of the 2017 college football season! In the friendly confines of Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn will take on the Georgia Southern Eagles. This game will kick off at 6:30 PM Central Time and will be televised on the SEC Network.

     It was not a typical year for Georgia Southern last season. A season with 5 wins and 7 losses was quite the come-down for this team, and most of the offensive coaching staff was let go. This year, the Eagles hope to return to their option-running roots and give teams like Auburn fits. Last year for Auburn, it was a season that started slowly then picked up a lot of steam. But, the wheels came off in November as injuries piled up. This season, the Tigers hope to be deeper and start off on a better note.

     Weather should be just about perfect for this game. Dry air is in place over the area, and skies should be mostly clear. Kickoff temperature will be around 80 degrees.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I’ll be here hopefully by the second quarter and jump right into a play by play and some fired-up commentary. This is what it’s all about, folks! College football is back! War Eagle, and beat Georgia Southern!

…..Mizzou was being challenged towards halftime, but kind of sprinted away. Me, if I was a Mizzou fan, I’d be worried about that defense.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201711:23 pm

…..Ballgame in the ATL. Bama changed up the blitz at the last second, and FSU did not pick up a fast nickelback blitz. The FSU QB is being carried off, and Alabama’s 24-7 lead is now insurmountable. Who were these media dufuses that figured the ACC had supplanted the SEC? New star NC-State couldn’t even beat South Carolina, a 6-7 team from a year ago. FSU is no threat to Bama. Media favorite Louisville is struggling against lower-echelon competition this Saturday, too.

I liked the way Missouri’s defense got torched for 43 points vs an FCS team, makes me feel optimistic about our trip there this year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201711:15 pm

…..Hated how inept Florida looked against Michigan. Save two pick sixes, they got absolutely blown out in this one. I find it strange that offensive guru Jim McElwain can’t find a quarterback. And Florida is running out of Muschamp defensive players, right and left.

dyingculture dyingculture September 2, 201711:10 pm

looks like the SEC is undefeated this week so far, with the exception of Florida.

dyingculture dyingculture September 2, 201711:04 pm

listening to the press conference right now. the bad boys will be back next week, but SW will be back week three. it’s another super-secret thing that Malzahn refuses to discuss the reasons.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:57 pm

…..I know one thing. I’d rather be trying to run on Clemson with Pettway, than with Kam Martin.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:56 pm

…..Kerryon Johnson’s injury looked very much like the same thing that got Pettway last year. It’s a shame, too. KJ was having a pretty good game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:55 pm

…..What I’m most worried about is the “suspensions” of Pettway and White. A few years ago, we had a couple of weed bust. Jerome Mincy got benched for a series, and Nick Marshall for a half. These guys got a whole game, and possibly more. What did they do?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:53 pm

…..If we give Stidham time, he’s really a dangerous passer. We got him beat up a little, in the first half. The Eagles did send the kitchen sink after an inexperienced left side, and got pressure. It dried up in the second half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:51 pm

…..I missed the first quarter, but I thought Auburn seriously outclassed this team. Auburn has weapons on offense. The new linemen on the left had issues, but the staff did a good job of coaching them up at halftime.

dyingculture dyingculture September 2, 201710:51 pm

12 tackles for loss by 8 different players.

MyAuburn MyAuburn September 2, 201710:50 pm

Offense needs work, i like defense. We need to get a lot better before next week

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:50 pm

…..Lotta youth on offense, and I guess we should have suspected a few warts here and there. The defense was absolutely dominant. Only 78 total yards given up. There was a LOT of good play, through all three levels.

dyingculture dyingculture September 2, 201710:50 pm

I didn’t get a chance to watch it, just listened to the game over the radio. Would it be fair to say that it was a pretty lackluster game? The injury to Kerryon didn’t help.

dyingculture dyingculture September 2, 201710:48 pm

and that’s another one thousand dollars for the “picks for kids” program by wells fargo.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:47 pm

…..Tigers win, 41-7, over Georgia Southern.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:46 pm

…..PICKED OFF! Daniel Thomas, and that’s ballgame!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:46 pm

…..Here’s Werts, will drop, heaves…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:46 pm

…..At the 42. Werts will run again, near the 50, clock stops at 9 seconds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:45 pm

…..Werts will scramble, has the first down on an 8 yard run.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:45 pm

…..Eagles on offense. Werts will fire to Richardson, and hammered immediately on the hitch by John Broussard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:44 pm

…..Adams to throw, and fires over everyone. Miscommunication. Receiver stopped, Adams threw deep.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:44 pm

…..This crew is a bunch of idiots.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:43 pm

…..And a flag? Illegal substitution on Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:43 pm

…..Clock under 2 minutes, 4th and 1.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:42 pm

…..3rd and 6, give to Barrett, and down at the 25.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:42 pm

….Give him a yard on the reception.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:42 pm

…..2nd and 7. Adams keep, fires to Igbanoghbe on the RP-option, and nothing doing. Took WAY too long to develop.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:41 pm

…..New set of Auburn downs. Tigers in no hurry. Clock runs. Give Barrett, stood up inside the 30.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:40 pm

….Give to Barrett, will pick up another first down, to the 34!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:40 pm

…..And refs miss it. Ruling stands! First down Auburn. Who is the doofus in the replay booth?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:39 pm

…..Knee was down WELL short of the stake.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:39 pm

…..If they are reviewing the spot, it may well be reversed. I think the spot was a little generous, on that.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:38 pm

…..Lane Ecton. Gets up, and is ushered off. Glad to see that the young man is ok.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:37 pm

…..Where they have spotted it, Auburn should have the first down. We have 4:14 left in the ball game, with Auburn leading, 41-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:37 pm

…..And an eagle down on the play, trying to tackle big Devin Adams.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:37 pm

……Here comes the blitz. Adams will take, and keep off the right, close…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:36 pm

…..4th and one, Auburn going?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:36 pm

…..3rd and 6 for Adams. He’ll step up, runs, and will go out of bounds a yard short, I think.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:35 pm

…..Adams changing his play. Will give to Barrett, falls forward to the 49.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:35 pm

….miller loses a yard, 2nd and 11.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:34 pm

…..2nd and 7, clock running. Give to on the sweep, Noah Igbanogaghne. Gonna have to learn to spell that one…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:33 pm

…..Gives to Malik Miller, bashes for three.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:33 pm

…..And Adams, it is!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:33 pm

…..Auburn is in a bit of an offensive quandary, here. They won’t play Sean White this game, for undisclosed reasons. Do they burn the redshirt on Malik Willis? Or put Devin Adams in? I vote for Adams, and let him throw!

MyAuburn MyAuburn September 2, 201710:32 pm

Time to getl Malik some reps

MyAuburn MyAuburn September 2, 201710:31 pm

Thats it for stidham

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:28 pm

…..Give to Fields, nothing doing once again. McBryde.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:28 pm

….The score is actually 41-7. Carlson will kick, another touchback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:26 pm

…..That’s about as good as that combo can be executed. They isolated Hastings beautifully on a safety.

MyAuburn MyAuburn September 2, 201710:25 pm

Hastings be in needs to be in every play. He will be our Wes Welker to Brady

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:24 pm

….Carlson, up and good, and with 9:18 left, Auburn leads, 40-7!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:23 pm

Tigers with a play fake, and Stidham on the smash corner route to Hastings, open, TOUCHDOWN!

…..Spot him a yard short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:19 pm

…..3rd and 11. Stidham will be flushed, and fires to Martin, will fight, and I think he has the first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:18 pm

……Here’s Martin again, buried trying to run left, lost a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:17 pm

….The last man pushes him out at the Eagle 34!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:17 pm

…..Auburn takes over on offense, with 11:24 left in the ball game. One back set. Give Martin, will get loose!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:14 pm

…..Tigers take over.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:14 pm

…..4th and goal, going. Werts will throw to Fields, and he’s dumped at the five! Darrell Williams, good coverage on the flat route!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:11 pm

….First and goal. Werts keeps, got maybe a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:10 pm

…..They’ll take it, and move the ball to the nine.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:10 pm

…..Offsides on Holland.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:10 pm

…..4th and inches, give to Fields, hurdles for the first. A flag…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:10 pm

….They mark him a half yard short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:09 pm

…..3rd and 7. Starting d-line back in. Werts will roll right, trying for the stake, and fought for the first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:09 pm

…..Another dive, to Fields, and he gets stood up at the 21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:09 pm

…..Eagles at the Auburn 24, up the gut goes Ramsby, and not much.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:05 pm

…..Auburn with a lot of backups on defense, now. And the 3rd quarter ends, with the Tigers leading, 34-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:04 pm

….No huddle, and Ramsby got two up the gut.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:04 pm

…..3rd and 7. Werts will give to Ramsby on the dive, but a yard short of the stake.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:03 pm

…..2nd and 10. Werts will run, and will go out of bounds at the 32.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:03 pm

…..New set of downs at the Auburn 35. Give to Fields, nothing doing. Coe drops him.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:02 pm

…..Give to Ramsby, will bull to the Auburn 35, and a 12 yard run.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:02 pm

…..They missed the fair catch signal.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:01 pm

…..Flags down, and Auburn gets a facemask.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:01 pm

…..And Shannon will be shanked, bounces, then fielded, and tries to run after a fair catch sign?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:00 pm

…..In comes Ian Shannon, for his first punt of the night.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 201710:00 pm

……3rd and 6. Twins either side, Stidham looking, looking, and sacked.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:59 pm

…..miller in.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:59 pm

…..2nd and 10. Give to Martin, and he loses his hat again after a 4 yard gain.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:59 pm

…..Here’s Stidham on 1st and 10, will throw deep down the boundary, and can’t get Barrett on the wheel.

When was the last time AU had this many sacks? Seems like forever.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:58 pm

…..2nd and 10. Werts gives up the gut, for maybe a yard. Maybe two.

…..Eagles will try again, up the gut, and Fields is slammed down by Byron Cowart!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:55 pm

……Here’s the boot, and caught near the endline for a touchback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:55 pm

…..Daniel Carlson has now passed Wes Byrum as Auburn’s all-time leading scorer.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:53 pm

…..With 5:20 left in the third, Auburn leads, 34-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:53 pm

…..This will be from 37 yards. It’s up, and this is good!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:52 pm

….Incomplete, and I think we’ll see Carlson.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:52 pm

….They stick with the original call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:52 pm

…..The ground seemed to cause that. He had it and took a couple of steps.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:51 pm

…..Ruled incomplete, but reviewing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:51 pm

…..3rd and 7. 4 wides. Stidham changing his play. Will fire over the middle to Slayton, and hit on the knee.. ouch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:50 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:49 pm

…..Fake to Miller, and Stidham gets only a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:49 pm

…..Trips right. Stidham will fire on the slant to Hastings, and he’s to the 23, and flipped over.

…..Fake, screen to Ryan Davis, will be close to the stake. 4 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:47 pm

…..Kam Martin on the give, will fight for about 5.

MyAuburn MyAuburn September 2, 20179:46 pm

Early to say this but right now, defense has to carry us until offense jells

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:44 pm

…..Flynn, a busy man. He’s punting out of his own end zone, and Roberts will fair catch at the Eagle 49.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:43 pm

…..3rd and 19. The snap, and Marlon Davidson will rip Werts down at the seven!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:42 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:38 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:37 pm

…..I’ve been bashing on them, but Horton and Wanagho have been steamrolling guys in the run game, thus far this half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:36 pm

……He’s been in, but Stidham can’t even think about throwing left, with the way that line is playing on that side.

WDErichie WDErichie September 2, 20179:34 pm

Is Nate Craig Meyer playing? Seen him a lot in A game but not at all tonight

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:32 pm

…..And we have a big Eagle lineman down. Ian Bush?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:32 pm

….Give Miller, he’ll bash inside the 20 to the 19.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:32 pm

…..2nd and 10 on the Eagle 24.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:32 pm

…..Stidham on the fade, overthrown.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:31 pm

…..And in comes Malik Miller.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:31 pm

…..2nd and 1. Quick give to Martin, fumbles… whewww. Darius James covered that thing!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:31 pm

…..New set of downs. Martin up the gut, powers near the stake!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:30 pm

…..Stidham rolling, fires to Stove, to the 36!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:30 pm

…..New set of downs. Blitz coming. Martin up the gut, for about 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:30 pm

…..2nd and 5 Tigers. Give to Martin, dodging, will fall across midfield, to the 49 of the Eagles.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:29 pm

…..Give Martin up the gut, got 5.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:28 pm

……He’ll shank it, bounces down to the Auburn 39.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:28 pm

…..In comes Flynn to punt. Stephen Roberts deep.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:28 pm

…..3rd and 6. Werts will step up, launch it, and over everybody. Miscommunication?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:27 pm

…..2nd and 6. Here’s a keeper, and Werts is wrapped up by Davidson, lost a half yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:27 pm

…..1st and 10 at the Eagle 25. Werts will take, and he gives to Ramsby, to the 29.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:26 pm

…..Here goes Carlson, 5 yards deep, kneed, and it’s a touchback for the Eagles.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:25 pm

…..Stidham does look uncomfortable. That’s because Auburn’s line calls and protection are shaky. Brent Venables is licking his chops, at what he’s unleash on this line at Clemson next week.

MyAuburn MyAuburn September 2, 20179:22 pm

Stidham looks uncomfortable, no Pettway, no Kerryon. Thank goodness it is Ga So. Lots of work to do before Clemson

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:11 pm

…..Defensively, the stats are staggering. Georgia Southern has amassed just 37 yards of total offense.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:08 pm

…..As spotty as it looked, Auburn has 302 yards at the half, and it really doen’t look like they are in danger of losing this game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:07 pm

…..On the sack-fumble-TD, the two guys over there just let the defensive end go free. Wanagho took the tackle, who was lined up a bit wide, and Horton didn’t block anybody. They should have adjusted wide on that protection.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:06 pm

…..It was a sloppy second quarter, particularly for the offense. The three turnovers is concerning, most of all. However, two of them were really on the offensive line. The left side looks rough.

carolina tiger September 2, 20179:05 pm

Lordy, I hope the offense can pull it together before next week.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:05 pm

…..Two seconds remain. And Auburn takes a knee, and it’s halftime. Tigers lead, 24-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:04 pm

…..Tyler Bass… DOINK! No good!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:04 pm

….4th down, and in comes the field goal unit. From 45..

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:04 pm

…..7 seconds remain in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:04 pm

…..3rd and 3. Werts will take, and rolls right, will have to throw it away!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:03 pm

…..A spike, stops the clock with 12 seconds left.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:03 pm

…..Werts will fire to the left, and caught on the square-in to the 27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:02 pm

….29 seconds left in the half, the Eagles are down to one left. Auburn leads, 24-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:01 pm

…..At the 34, Eagles slow lining up. And they have to waste a timeout!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:01 pm

….Tunnel screen to Slayton, big gain, fumbles, and Georgia Southern has it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:00 pm

…..Wanogho is having trouble on Stidham’s blind side.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:00 pm

…..No, he didn’t catch that.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20179:00 pm

…..Stidham holds it, holds it, dumped to Martin, for 5, and down, and the clock runs.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20178:59 pm

…..Fake, stidham under duress, and he’s down in bounds at the 20.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20178:58 pm

…..Flynn to punt, and a low liner, bounces Juuuust into the end zone for the touchback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20178:57 pm

…..Substitution on Southern.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20178:57 pm

…..And a flag stops the punt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20178:57 pm

…..At the Auburn 37, Tigers call time, stopping the clock with 1:18 left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 2, 20178:56 pm

…..4th and 24, and out of field goal range.

Your guess is as good as mine…. but SW in particular seems like a discipline issue, since there isnt any reason to hold him otherwise.

AUNation AUNation September 2, 20177:45 pm

Any insight on the SW, KP, and KD situation?
