A Historic Title Game! (Auburn vs. Georgia Open Thread)

By on December 2nd, 2017 in Football 1 Comment »
Title Thread

Let’s celebrate another Auburn championship!
(Photo by Acid Reign)

     War Eagle, everybody! It’s SEC Championship day! In Atlanta in the shiny new Mercedes Benz Stadium, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Georgia Bulldogs for the second time in less than a month for the big prize. The winner takes home the coveted SEC trophy and is virtually guaranteed a spot in the College Football Playoff. The loser might get into a New Year’s Six bowl, most likely something with more Citrus in it.

     Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn has a chance to make history. He could win his second SEC title in 5 years while coaching in the same division with Nick Saban. How impressive would a second SEC Title be as an Auburn coach? Shug Jordan couldn’t win 2 titles. Tuberville couldn’t do it. Nor could Gene Chizik. Today Malzahn can become only the second coach to win two or more, joining Pat Dye. The SEC Title Game will kick off at 3:00 PM Central Standard Time, and it will be nationally televised on CBS.

     Weather won’t be a factor in this game, however, playing in a dome can be rough. Both teams have become used to playing in breezy fall weather. In a dome, it will be at least 10 degrees hotter. And grass is a lot more forgiving than artificial turf stretched over concrete. For those fans attending various pregame festivities in downtown Atlanta, expect partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the upper 60’s. A fog-shrouded near-full moon should greet fans exiting the stadium after the game concludes.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will be on my Thinkpad for my usual play by play, operating remotely for this one. If I’m slower than usual, and miss a play or two, that’s why. War Eagle, and let’s see if Auburn completes an SEC championship run against the Georgia Bulldogs

gophers42 December 3, 20171:44 pm

Several issues to discuss. First Auburn should not pay anymore money to Gus, let him go to Ark. This Mickey Mouse staff had this team not ready to play and compete, once again, in a big game. The hs baseball coach chip lindsey should be fired. The second down trick play with a 290 lb tackle playing wr cost us this game. We were gaining 3-4 yrds per rush and that stupid play call cost us this game.
Second- once again bama is going to back into a nat title. They are not punished for a loss so why should we keep playing them. The SEC schedule is crap with us having to play GA, AL and then poss championship. Also, we should never, ever schedule a non-conference game against a top ten opp. We dont need to do this. We will play LSU, Texas AM, GA and Bama every year . That should be enough. Ohio St did not get a do over with Iowa, GA did. I am all for doing away with SEC championship. Selection Comm does not value them. It cost Au a place in playoff.

AETiger AETiger December 3, 20178:30 am

Unrelated, but can someone at AU please, please demand that the SEC change the scheduling back to split the home/home road/road Uga / ua games? Name me a school that has such a scheduling dilemma? Sure it worked for us this year, what about next? And every other even numbered year?

JRoweMDN December 2, 20179:28 pm

And yes that was a dirty UGA team.

JRoweMDN December 2, 20179:27 pm

Am I that fan because I think Gus can’t adjust? No KJ no offense?

AU70 December 2, 20178:23 pm

2nd and 6 on the 14. We are about to go up 14. Cam Martin just picked up 4 on first down. We are running the ball well at this point. I believe 2 more runs and it is 1st and goal. Instead we go cute and end up fumbling the ball away. It started going south at that point.

jlobailey December 2, 20178:03 pm

Gus Malzahn at press conference as said by SEC Nation:
‘“Yes,’ Malzahn says. ‘I’m happy to be here at Auburn.’ Goes on to say he the future is bright on the Plains ‘wants to be’ the head coach at Auburn next year. Doesn’t say he will be.”

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:57 pm

I really envision 2004 type of scenario where the entire team comes back with the intent of winning a national championship. Cadillac and Ronnie Brown both came back for their senior seasons for that specific reason.

Rayguns December 2, 20177:56 pm

I thought Jawja played one the dirtiest games I have ever watched

jlobailey December 2, 20177:55 pm

Yeah, arm talent, but probably not enough film on him. Again, none of the talent coming back will matter if we get a new coaching staff. Can’t stress that enough.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:54 pm

Stidham is draft eligible, but I don’t see him as getting a high enough draft grade to justify his leaving after only about 16 games as starter.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:54 pm

Isn’t Stidham draft eligible? This is his 3rd year of eligibility.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:52 pm

Well, our best DL aren’t draft eligible, except Holland. And it’s not clear that he will leave. If he does leave, Moultry is clearly being groomed to be his replacement. Every last receiver will be back, and Pettway pretty much has to come back now. The only question is OL, but we already know who the two guards will be and the LT. The OL will be just fine.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:51 pm

Dyingculture I was half hoping that CCL would leave for hope of stealing away Kendal Briles at OC

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:48 pm

And I just don’t see that the South Alabama job is enough to convince Lindsey to leave. It’s plain as the nose on your face that another two years as OC at Auburn would qualify him for a power 5 HC job.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:48 pm

Dyingculture if you’re right, we will be loaded next year

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:46 pm

I think Gus gets the “package” that he wants and stays at Auburn, because as mentioned, who would replace him?

jlobailey December 2, 20177:45 pm

We will be out of the playoff next year because we’ll have a new staff I think. Talent will be wasted because fans think 10-2 with wins over Bama and UGA isn’t good enough.

BeachTiger BeachTiger December 2, 20177:45 pm

I hope Gus stays because we have a great bowl game coming up (somewhere). So let’s get well, kick some more dog crap out of our bowl opponent, and then get ready for next year… which should be awesome! The last two weeks made up for everything that went bad during the season! War Damn Eagle!

jlobailey December 2, 20177:44 pm

Agreed Capn

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:44 pm

I can’t envision a scenario where we arent in the playoff next year. The entire offense will be back, almost the entire front 7 will be back, and I am betting almost the entire coaching staff will be back. The only players who might leave early might be Holland and KJ.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:44 pm

Tonight was just a loss, because the team didn’t play as well as the other team. Not Gus’s fault.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:44 pm

Extremely worried about the next few years… I think CGM goes to Arky and makes them sneaky competitive, Jimbo gets Texas A&M competitive, UGA will be the UAT of the East, and Auburn will have to rebuild with a new HC. With no homerun hires on the table.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:43 pm

We should certainly be in contention. I just don’t want to see any dumb LSU game-like stuff. If we get beat, we get beat, but it should NEVER be due to poor game planning and coaching. Not at what we’re paying.

Jonathon Jonathon December 2, 20177:42 pm

All I’m hearing is that we should win NC next year with our returns. But if we don’t? ..with Gus..

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:41 pm

Im telling ya, I think Steele will stay. I think he wants to retire at Auburn. He was HC for 9 years at Baylor, and that was such a disaster that it took him a decade to get his reputation back. I think he has accepted that DC is the job for him, and he stays at Auburn.

JRoweMDN December 2, 20177:41 pm

War Eagle anyway!

JRoweMDN December 2, 20177:40 pm

Gus will stay. I hope he does and learns to adjust. If not Fuente or Leach will be ready next year.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:39 pm

For sure we will get a good bowl game and we will win it.

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:39 pm

War Eagle!

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:39 pm

I really just don’t want a return to the days of “no defense before Kevin Steele”. Man, they’re good. Just had a bad day today, though.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20177:39 pm

Georgia defeats Auburn, 28-7. Tigers fall to 10-3 on the season, and await bowl placement. War Eagle, everybody! It’s great to be an Auburn Tiger!

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:37 pm

I think the entire coaching staff will stay. The only threat to leave is Chip Lindsey, but if he gets a raise to over a million a year that will help. South Alabama wants him, but he can do better than that gig if he has another good year or two at AU.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:37 pm

Our team will struggle despite the talent that CGM accumulated if CGM leaves.

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:36 pm

EXACTLY, dyingculture. I like our team next year. And have you taken a look at everyone b*** will be losing? They’ll be losing a ton of people. I like it, for us and them.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:36 pm

Yeah. Expectations next year will be off the charts.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:36 pm

Would be shocked if he doesn’t leave. If I’m a coach, I’d rather be somewhere where a large part of the fanbase doesn’t want me fired for going 10-2

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:35 pm

Arky fans would appreciate being competitive.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:35 pm

But I honestly think Malzhan stays. Coaches want to win. He won’t win at Arky like he could win at Auburn. Simply doesn’t have the resources. Dan Mullen could’ve stayed at MSU……8 wins a year there and you drink for free forever. 8 wins a year at UF gets you fired. But……better chance of winning at UF than MSU.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:35 pm

Well, almost the entire front 7 will be back next year, for one. And I think KJ and Pettway will be back too. Pettway for sure because he did himself no favors this year. KJ might not get a high enough draft grade to leave early. Stidham will be back and all of the receivers will be back, all of them.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:35 pm

Arky fans would appreciate a 10 win reg season and a top 10 finish for sure

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:35 pm

I have no idea who I would want to replace Malzahn, IF he leaves. Hmm…honestly no idea.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:34 pm

Wouldn’t hate a Lane Kiffin hire. What about Mike Norvell? And maybe retain CCL since they’re liked through ASU

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:34 pm

The best in the SEC

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:34 pm

Arky has great fans too!

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:33 pm

If Malzahn leaves, jlo, I’d suspect it would be because of the reason you listed. Arky’s expectations are pretty low…

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:33 pm

LOL

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:33 pm

But if they win, they can bang chickens for all I care.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:32 pm

So would Bobby Petrino. But you wouldn’t need hookers, just blonde interns.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:32 pm

Amen Col. Angus

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:32 pm

Mike Price would love that deal, Capn’.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:32 pm

this is a results oriented business and if you dont beat your rivals and you lose 20 pt leads with Elite talent…..you are going to get some heat.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:31 pm

If Malzhan leaves, back up the money truck, bring in some hookers, and hire Art Briles.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:31 pm

Just sayin’. I agree it’s not fair, but I think Malzahn will stay. He’s got the right coaching staff and all of the players on the roster were hand-picked by him.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:31 pm

Another dropped pass

jlobailey December 2, 20177:31 pm

Not likeminded AU fans. I appreciate lucid fans who enjoy wins over rivals.

I mean, I obviously like CGM and I hope he doesn’t leave. But if you were him, wouldn’t you want to reset your clock with appreciative fans?

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:30 pm

Maybe not, jlo. There’s been no announcement that Malzahn is leaving. Maybe he’ll stay.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:30 pm

And LSU fans for sure will forgive their coach if he gets 9-10 wins every year and they dont win a championship.

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:29 pm

Agreed, Capn.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:29 pm

And Georgia fans are so much more forgiving when their head coach gets 9-10 wins every year, but he didnt win a championship.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:29 pm

Hey Jo Bailey
Go sell that crap somewhere on the Bama/UGA sites

CapnVegetto December 2, 20177:29 pm

I don’t blame Gus for this loss. I really don’t. Georgia was better tonight. We humiliated them 3 weeks ago and they wanted us. As much as I hate losing, I can stand losing like this. Coaches didn’t lose this game. Georgia just whipped our ass. They earned it.

Good luck AU in the bowl game and I’ll welcome Gus back next year.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:28 pm

I know I wouldnt want to play against Malzahn

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:26 pm

I said before the season that I wanted us to be at least 9-3, splitting a win between b*** and uga. Auburn did that, and more, under Coach Malzahn. I hope he doesn’t go to Arkansas.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:26 pm

I always got the impression that Steele is happy where he is. He tried being a HC and it was a disaster. Plus he’s getting old and he would probably prefer to make this his last gig before retiring.

Jonathon Jonathon December 2, 20177:25 pm

Let’s remember that, had Gus not dropped those two games earlier we’d still be in a discussion. If Gus stays he’ll need to learn to win, consistently.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:25 pm

me neither, but I have no idea who we could get that would be worth a damn

jlobailey December 2, 20177:25 pm

Was thinking CCL bc CKS has been in so much coaching carousel talk

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:24 pm

I’d really like Kevin Steele to stay. But I don’t know about his abilities as head coach.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:23 pm

Kevin Steele will the coach, if he doesnt bolt

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:23 pm

Please funnel that money to get rid of the bus

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:23 pm

For sure, Col. Can’t take those wins away. And keeping UA out of the CFB, too. Not a bad season, after all.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:23 pm

Gary Danielson is a complet buffoon

jlobailey December 2, 20177:23 pm

Peach Bowl against UCF with Chip Lindsey as interim HC is my guess

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:22 pm

Whatever it takes to give you the boot, Acid. 10 mil, 20 mil, we have the money.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:21 pm

I hate losing to UGA but I would trade this loss to beat both UGA and Bama and keep Bama out of the playoff

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20177:21 pm

…..I get my buyout, right? Ten million? Then Phil Fulmer’s gonna hire me at Tennessee. I just know it! We’ll see if this post will go through. Georgia is on the verge of scoring again, with about 5 minutes left.

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:19 pm

True, Sqeaky. And those were FUN wins.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:19 pm

I was thinking Cotton

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:19 pm

I am guessing the Peach Bowl vs. UCF.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:19 pm

At least we beat Alabama and Georgia in regular season!

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20177:18 pm

what bowl game are we looking at?

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:17 pm

Score’s still 28-7. Would be nice to get a few more points, just for the record books.

jlobailey December 2, 20177:17 pm

If I were CGM, I would take a pay cut to go somewhere where fans won’t want me fired off of a 10 win season. Horrible fans…

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20177:16 pm

…..I’m dial-up or worse speed, right now. This game has come apart.

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:16 pm

I don’t care, Squeaky. Fire Acid Reign anyway! We’ll replace him somehow, don’t worry.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:15 pm

Sorry, but no one could keep up with Acid

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:15 pm

I’ve seen at least 6 non calls
Holland was held by two guys on each arm once

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:14 pm

they dont call holding anymore do they?
They haven’t called one all game

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:13 pm

#7 holding
right out in the open

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:13 pm

Tend to agree DyingCulture

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:12 pm

HaHa tiger

Tiger Tiger December 2, 20177:12 pm

All I know is, one more outage from Acid Reign tonight and he should be fired from TET.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:12 pm

I dont want to lose Malazhn but I wont cry if he leaves either. We have Elite talent

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20177:12 pm

Auburn has been flat on both sides of the ball. I think knocking off two #1 teams in a row took a lot out of them. Georgia, on the other hand, played two tuneup games to get ready for playing at home this week.

Jonathon Jonathon December 2, 20177:11 pm

Then we need to hire a better strength and conditioning coach or gain better depth. No excuses this time of year.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:11 pm

After what Fisher landed, lots of reports that Ark will offer Malzahn the same – before throwing in the towel, what’s the alternative?

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:11 pm

Not haveing the MVP of the SEC really hurts. Impacts our entire offense. Our WRs are not good enough to get open when blitzes

Jonathon Jonathon December 2, 20177:10 pm

Injuries is not an excuse.. it’s Everyone’s problems this time of the season. We were not prepared with that in mind.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:09 pm

Thanks for perspective Acid

JRoweMDN December 2, 20177:08 pm

I will accept having Tre out hurts

JRoweMDN December 2, 20177:07 pm

If Gus had played the other backs and not been a 1 trick pony this goes different.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:07 pm

Martin is too small

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20177:07 pm

…..This game, sadly, is an accumulation of key injuries. Alabama had the same, a week ago. It doesn’t make the coach terrible, in either case.

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:07 pm

Hope KJ is healthy for the Cotton

JRoweMDN December 2, 20177:06 pm

What’s wrong with Martin?

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:06 pm

If KJ or Petteway was healty, this is a totally different game

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:06 pm

I am surprised at lack of consistency by Auburn

JRoweMDN December 2, 20177:06 pm

What a disappointing game. I hate to see this end. If Gus learns from this it will make me happy.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:06 pm

thats right

Squeakywheel December 2, 20177:05 pm

It’s hard to beat a good SEC team without a healthy RB

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20177:05 pm

we dont have any running game and I won’t disparage this defense

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20177:05 pm

…..Swift gets a long breakaway run, and this becomes a blowout on the 64 yard touchdown. 28-7 Georgia, with 10:34 left.

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20177:04 pm

i bet arkansas sports radio is goin nuts

Jonathon Jonathon December 2, 20177:04 pm

Agreed.. Gus sucks.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:29 pm

we cant sustain a drive, because our WR’s cant get open against their secondary

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:29 pm

Not being able to run the ball, is really hurting us

…..4:57 left in the third, and Georgia nurses a 10-7 lead.

that probably was best, he would have lost yardage

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:26 pm

…..3rd and 10. Can Auburn protect, this time?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:25 pm

…..2nd and 10. Fake to Martin, and Stidham misses his man.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:25 pm

dang, that was close. Needed that

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:25 pm

…..Behind the sticks again.

…..2nd and 9. Stidham will scramble, gets the first down!

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20176:24 pm

Gracious, if UGA would calm down and quit playing like street thugs they’d probably win this game.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:24 pm

these guys need to get up field while they have momentum

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:24 pm

…..Flip to Barrett got a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:23 pm

…..At the 47, Tigers first and ten.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20176:23 pm

That was a phantom helmet being ripped off, don’t you know.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20176:23 pm

Dyingculture, I guess he’s used to having Bammer pay off the refs and being able to get away with anything.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:22 pm

Facemask on Georgia, on that return!

CapnVegetto December 2, 20176:22 pm

Georgia player rips Auburn face mask off. God I hope we beat them.

Welp, Kirby Smart’s complaining about the first game hasn’t resulted in fewer penalties being called against Georgia so far.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20176:18 pm

Wouldn’t be Georgia if they didn’t play dirty.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:18 pm

Danielson needs to stop rooting for UGA

Yeah! You tell ’em Gary. Georgia gets screwed again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:17 pm

Amazing how R Davis finds space.

Great play by Stidham

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:09 pm

…..3rd and 7, possession play. Stidham takes, will scramble, fires to Davis, breaking tackles, he’s to the Georgia side of the field!

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:09 pm

We have to put pressure on UGA defense
make them defend the whole field

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:08 pm

…..2nd and 10 Tigers. KJ back in. Give KJ, three yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:08 pm

…..Barrett in at tailback. Stidham goes empty. Going deep, way overthrown.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20176:08 pm

Time for Stidham to open things up

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:06 pm

….With 12:00 left in the 3rd, Auburn takes over at their 20. Georgia leads, 10-7. Short handed, the Auburn defense got a stop.

clm0001 clm0001 December 2, 20176:03 pm

CBS saying C. Davis out for game for “undisclosed reasons”

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20176:03 pm

Heck of a spot.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:03 pm

…..Spot, will be short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:03 pm

…..3rd and 3. Fromm will throw short to Godwin, got a good spot.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:02 pm

…..2nd and 10. Three wides. Here’s a screen to Swift, up to the 44.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:01 pm

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20176:01 pm

Marlon Davidson is back out there.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:01 pm

…..2nd and 2. Here’s Michel, gets to the 38.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20176:00 pm

…..Pistol set, Michel gets 8 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:59 pm

…..Reporting that Tray Williams and Carlton Davis are out for the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:59 pm

….2nd half is underway.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:59 pm

….Here’s the boot by Carlson, kneed 5 yards deep for a touchback.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:59 pm

I see a ton of empty seats for tickets to have been $500+?

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:58 pm

I know Barrett can catch, but he’s really green in all other areas.

CapnVegetto December 2, 20175:57 pm

Not a bad 1st half. We’re in this game. I don’t hate the coaches, don’t hate the playcalling, or anything. Georgia is just outplaying us right now, plain and simple. Hope to see some good adjustments.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:57 pm

…..Kam’s hands were shaky in the first half of the season, but he’s made some big plays down the stretch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:57 pm

…..What hasn’t been addressed in halftime coverage is the health (or not) of Marlon Davidson at end. His loss would be huge, because he really eats tackle blocks up, and sets the edge.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:56 pm

Can Kam Martin catch? Swing passes out of the backfield is a big part of how we beat UGA and UA earlier. And it’s a big part of how UGA is keeping us off balance now.

auburnelvis December 2, 20175:52 pm

I think the Tigers looked good! Take away that fumble when we’re 7- nut and go up at least ten ! Different ballgame ,maybe we’ll get some of that ole 2nd half swagg

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20175:45 pm

I think it’s because they don’t have any confidence in Martin’s blocking, and that is why they turn to Miller.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:43 pm

…..I’m not sure about Martin. It seems obvious that they want to limit Kerryon’s touches. Martin had a series, then Malik Miller. I’m not whether that was because of any injury, or just wanting to go by committee.

clm0001 clm0001 December 2, 20175:42 pm

Any chance we see Martin get the ball more?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:41 pm

…..The defense looks like it has never seen an I-formation toss sweep before, either, at times. Georgia has hurt themselves with penalties, but so has Auburn.

broken_towel broken_towel December 2, 20175:35 pm

UGA is absolutely dominating us on both sides of the ball.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:34 pm

….The story of this half is Kerryon Johnson, just 8 carries for 16 yards.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:33 pm

Man, everything changed with the fumble.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:32 pm

…..Looks like we’ll get to halftime. Georgia leads Auburn, 10-7. And the Bulldogs do get the ball in the 2nd half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:31 pm

….Georgia takes a knee?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:31 pm

……Enforced on the end of the kick, moves the ball to the 22.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:31 pm

…..illegal formation, I think.

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20175:30 pm

flag?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:30 pm

…..Marshall will hit a short one, fair caught at the 17, and yet another flag.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:30 pm

They are SHOWING they are coming every time!

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20175:30 pm

wow that was so obvious
how could we not adjust

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:30 pm

…..Letting the clock run, on 4th and long at the 49 of UGA.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:30 pm

…..Out of field goal range, too. Had to throw quickly, and didn’t.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:29 pm

…..3rd and 4, Tigers. Stidham will face a blitz. Sacked.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20175:29 pm

nice play

…..2nd and 14. Clock near two minutes. QB draw, to the 38.

flag?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:28 pm

…..Some sort of illegal block?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:28 pm

…..2nd and 9 Tigers. Huddling. Trips left. Stidham will pump, and will find Davis, flag…. to the 31.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20175:27 pm

wow that was big
we need to score

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:27 pm

…..That will spot it at the UGA 43. Give Malik Miller, only a yard.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:27 pm

WOW.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:26 pm

……Gives Auburn the ball back!

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:26 pm

…..Call? Facemask on the defense!

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:26 pm

…..Here’s KJ on the give, got about 3.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:23 pm

I agreen Col. but it can’t take too long for them to get downfield.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:23 pm

…..TOucback on another kickoff.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20175:22 pm

We really need to start throwing downfield.
We need to make them pay for crowding the line

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:21 pm

….Correction, clock is at 4:59 left in the half.

dyingculture dyingculture December 2, 20175:21 pm

Well, Danielson says that the pick was incorrectly called. Yet another way that Georgia got screwed and points were taken off the board.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:20 pm

…..With 5:30 left in the half, Georgia leads Auburn, 10-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:19 pm

…..Blankenship in for the field goal. From 27 yards. It is up, and good.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20175:19 pm

i dont blame them for trying
but that was obvious

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:19 pm

…..Georgia goes three wide, and they’ll give up the gut to Michel, down to the ten, 4th down.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:19 pm

Caught a break.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:18 pm

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:17 pm

They are running our offense. And doing it better than us.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:16 pm

…..Chubb up the gut, is he in? No. Just short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20175:16 pm

…..First and goal at the three.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20175:15 pm

Godwin was very close to being a Tiger out of HS.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:47 pm

…..Stidham takes, will run! To the 34, close to the stake.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:46 pm

….Only a 36 yard punt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:46 pm

…..Nizolek will punt this. Fair catch, Roberts at the 24.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:45 pm

…..Roberts goes deep, and Georgia will apparently punt, this time.

audude audude December 2, 20174:45 pm

They got a favorable spot. Should be 4th&2.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:44 pm

…..Georgia going, Auburn calls time.2:56 left in the first quarter, Auburn still leads, 7-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:43 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:43 pm

…..Chubb is pulled down!

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:42 pm

Gus said the turf was softer than AUs indoor facility. Whatever that affects.

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20174:42 pm

both hardeman and kerryon slipped on that turf

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:41 pm

…..49 yard punt.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:41 pm

Well that’s one way to help our coverage…

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:41 pm

…..Hardeman deep, and Aiden Marshall in to punt, towering punt, and Hardeman is down at the 32.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20174:41 pm

We need to challenge downfield
they are playing us tight to the line

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:40 pm

….3rd and 15. Trips left. Swing to KJ, only to the 22.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:40 pm

Dang they did a great job of “disgusing” that blitz. Haha

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20174:40 pm

kerryon doesnt appear to be favoring his shoulder

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Huddle. Under center, give KJ, will run over one, and only a yard.

Col.Angus Col.Angus December 2, 20174:39 pm

UGA playing a little sloppy again

audude audude December 2, 20174:37 pm

Wonder why Roberts helmet came off? I guess UGA is continuing to implode.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:37 pm

…..One question has been answered, thus far. Can Auburn keep hammering Georgia on the line of scrimmage? Thus far, it has definitely been so!

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:36 pm

…..Punt team in. Low punt, Roberts at the 15. He’ll be swarmed down at the Auburn 20.

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20174:36 pm

surprised fromm didnt fumble the way he was holding the ball when he got hit

audude audude December 2, 20174:35 pm

2 in a row.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:35 pm

…..3rd and 13 Bulldogs. Fromm will take, and DOWN HE GOES!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:35 pm

……2nd and 17. Fromm will give to Michel, will not get the corner, and he is pushed out at midfield.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:35 pm

Tray seemed to enjoy that.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:34 pm

….. Tray Matthews safety blitz, and dumped for a 7 yard loss.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:34 pm

Bingo.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:32 pm

…..Here’s a toss to Michel, fumble!! Rolls out at the 38.

audude audude December 2, 20174:30 pm

Georgia will implode if we play with intensity. They already have started.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:30 pm

UGA sure is playing a sloppy game so far penalty and mental mistake-wise, hope it keeps on.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:29 pm

…..With 9:21 left in the first quarter, Auburn leads, 7-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:29 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:28 pm

…..Carlson boots it deep, and thru the end zone for a touchback!

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:28 pm

We need defensive dominance again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:27 pm

…..Now it’s Georgia’s serve.

MyAuburn MyAuburn December 2, 20174:26 pm

Textbook play

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:26 pm

…..About the only real defense is to drop a linebacker into the slant lane and try to disrupt the route. Can draw a flag real easily, too.

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:25 pm

Slants thrown that quickly and that accurately cannot be defended.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:25 pm

…..Carlson is up and good, and with 6:54 left in the first quarter, Auburn leads, 7-0!

AUNation AUNation December 2, 20174:24 pm

…..Will bring up 3rd and goal at the 6. Fake, fires, Nate Craig Myers HAS IT!

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:23 pm

…..Wildcat, and KJ will lose 3 after faking the jump pass.

audude audude December 2, 20174:22 pm

Let’s finish this with 7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:21 pm

…..With 10:56 left in the first quarter, we are scoreless. However, Auburn is threatening at the Georgia five!

…..We are nearly to the coin toss.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:04 pm

…..I read this morning that Nebraska is telling recruits that Frost is a done deal. That could sour things, if events at Tennessee this week are to be believed.

I_AUm_The_Stig December 2, 20174:02 pm

asking Frost about his departure to Neb. in the post game on-field interview was… bold?

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20174:01 pm

…..UCF holds on, remains unbeaten, and wins the American Conference title.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20173:58 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20173:57 pm

…..Last Auburn vs. Georgia game played in Atlanta was back in 1914.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20173:55 pm

…..UCF scores first, in the second OT. 62-55 over Memphis, Tigers’ serve.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20173:52 pm

UCF Memphis, 55-all thru one overtime.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20173:52 pm

…..With that said, I’ve seen the starting lineup announces, both on TV and radio, and a player or two different actually happens when they line up.

audude audude December 2, 20173:50 pm

Kerryon has been officially named a starter according to CBS.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20173:46 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20171:59 pm

…..Several big games are going on, right now.
Memphis 31, Central Florida 24, halftime in the C-USA title game. UCF has an unbeaten record on the line.
Oklahoma 17, TCU 14, midway through the 2nd quarter in the newly renewed Big-12 title game.
Toledo 28, Akron 0 at the half. Terry Bowden’s Akron Zips have, well… zip.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20171:55 pm

…..I won’t have as much commentary prior to the game as usual, as I’m going to be running an errand or two before Auburn kicks off. However, here’s a bit of a scoreboard update.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20171:52 pm

…..Good for JF III. As it turned out, he handled not winning the starting job better than other quarterbacks of his era did. Never a bad word about Auburn…

KungFuPanda9 KungFuPanda9 December 2, 201712:22 pm

I just saw John Franklin III catch a TD pass for FAU.

MyAuburn MyAuburn December 2, 201710:14 am

The UAT folks have gone underground. I have had great fun seeing how quick they go ballistic when you mention Fulmer being back at UT. Alfred Means still sticks in their craw.
I hope KJ is good to go, his status could mean the difference.
Legatron will be the other difference maker. No wind means easier kicks and kickoffs out of the endzone so our achilles heel does not rear up and bite us.

Acid Reign Acid Reign December 2, 20179:38 am

…..And we are live! Still no word out of Auburn on whether Kerryon Johnson will play in this one, or not. I figure we won’t know till starting lineups are named, and maybe not even till we see the offense on the field for the first time.

    Gus produced a good season. It’s not that folks are looking past those big wins down the stretch, it’s that folks are bummed from the opening loss to that horrid drop to LSU. Imagine being where we are without the two additional losses. Clemson loss, ok. LSU loss is just the same ‘ol Gus narrative. This game was ugly (injuries aside) and reiterates Gus’ lack of consistency.
