Assault the Aggies!

By on October 27th, 2012 in Football, Uncategorized 51 Comments »

Jets will fly over Jordan Hare before the game.

(Auburn vs. Texas A&M, open thread.)

     War Eagle, everybody! It’s gameday once again! It’s the 8th weekend of college footall, and today the Auburn Tigers host the Texas A&M Aggies. It should be a brisk, breezy evening for this one, with a nearly full moon perhaps peeking out through mostly cloudy skies during the game. It’s military appreciation day on the Plains, and servicemen and women from both schools will be honored. This one will be televised on ESPN-U.

     This game is one we’ve been dreading, because Auburn seemingly has lots of matchup problems on both sides of the ball. An under-achieving front seven on defense must somehow contain a ridiculously strong offensive line, and the fastest quarterback in college football. And the Auburn offense for the first time all season will have to find a way to sustain drives, eat the clock up, and score touchdowns. It’s a tall order, for this team.

     As always, feel free to chime in and sound off on this thread! I think most of our staff will be at this game, trying to help our Tigers pull out a win. It’s Saturday primetime once again at Jordan Hare, where miracles happen. War Eagle, and let’s beat Texas A&M!

    I’m with you, when it seems like we have the least chance to win we perform a miracle at night in Jordan hair. Lets go Tiger fans, rock it out tonight, add some magic, and cheer our guys to victory! Remember we are Auburn and show A&M our true hospitality, sportsmanship, and passion! Headed to tailgate!

    War Eagle!

  2. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    I will be the happiest guy in Alabama if I see Mason running the ball early and often. If we see that enough times we stand a chance.

  3. Prjr25 Prjr25 says:

    I’ll be cheering extra loud for our defense tonight! Let’s go Tigers, War Eagle!!!

  4. tigertracker says:

    I’m trying hard to get excited. I keep thinking maybe this is the week we internally pull the plug on Loeffler and let another assistant call plays. Let mason and Coates step up and lead. Keep calling their #s and as their stats and confidence rise so will the play of their teammates. If we are are going to win Jordan hare must be on fire and stay on fire tonight. That means both sides of the ball have to produce and keep the crowd in it! Bow ya neck men. It’s time to make a stand. Believe in Auburn and love it. The rest will take care of itself.

    GO BIG BLUE !!!

  6. challenger10 says:

    d line is getting manhandled and we are still missing too many tackles

  7. challenger10 says:

    War Eagle Is anypne on

  8. spanky says:

    Final nail in the coffin for Chizik.

  9. spanky says:

    Lets just try to gain negative yards. At least then we could accomplish something.

  10. challenger10 says:

    At the end of the 1st quarter tamu 21 AU 0, 3 three and outs on offense and minus 10 yards of offense

  11. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Jake Holland is heinous.

  12. aubb says:

    i want wallace

  13. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Do you think they are playing poorly to get Chizik fired? Lol

    • challenger10 says:

      I think they are trying as hard as they can. The fundamentals are just so poor and the schemes are not any better.

  14. challenger10 says:

    I do not remember ever seeing this poor a performance. tamu 42 AU 7 we have given up 460 yards of offense in the first half

  15. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    This is without a doubt the worst Auburn game ever.

  16. AUWood1425 says:

    Wow. This is going to be the most crushing defeat in Jordan-Hare history. A&M could score 100 if they tried. Very sad. I really feel for that locker room at halftime – what could anyone possibly say. I was on the “one more year” side of the fence but this is truly beyond embarrassing.

  17. restless6 says:

    Another record falls. Most points score on Auburn in a half ever.

    Pathetic.

  18. restless6 says:

    Touchdown A&M.

    I predicted 63-7 with some friends Friday. I think I may have missed it slightly.

  19. aubb says:

    it’s my fault, i’ve been a bad person this year

  20. challenger10 says:

    The stadium is half empty

  21. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    If they don’t let Wallace finish the game out, something is wrong with their decision making ability.

  22. challenger10 says:

    florence has wiffed on at least two tackles where he was right in the hole

  23. challenger10 says:

    we are getting waxed by their second team

  24. aubb says:

    whats our worst loss? i want to avenge this one and quick

  25. restless6 says:

    Wallace looks great against A&Ms second and third team.

    A&M should not call the dogs off.

  26. challenger10 says:

    I know theis is tamu’s second team D but the passes were crisp and accurate. Wallace needs to play the rest of the season

  27. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    What happened to the defense? And, seriously, why is Holland even on the field?

    • restless6 says:

      They aren’t very good. Georgia, Bama, and, possibly Alabama A&M, should win against this team.

    • Jonathon Jonathon says:

      Brutal Words I know, but…
      I’ve been asking that question about Holland since his first snap. The guy is a nice addition to wasted space. The linebackers in general just aren’t good at playing that position.

  28. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    63 points is the most Auburn has allowed since giving up 68 against Georgia Tech in 1917

  29. challenger10 says:

    Good night all

  30. restless6 says:

    672 yards 63 points against Auburn tonight.
    21 points by Auburn, mostly against 2nd and 3rd string players.

    Half empty stands, booing, and the web on fire with calls for mass firings should send the message.

    The season is lost. Pull the trigger and begin the firings tomorrow. Start with JJ.

  31. AETiger AETiger says:

    I just got home from that debacle. I don’t know where to start. I think I’m going to sell my UGA tickets. I am seriously considering not ordering season tickets next year, after making that purchase since 1984. I can’t take this anymore.

  32. mikeautiger says:

    A most disappointing evening…..

  33. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I tried to kind of downplay it, but I had a bad feeling about their O-line against our pretty average D-line going in. Don’t know if it showed up on TV, but we got seriously butt-whipped up front by their O line. They were tight! We’d try to help our guys by lining up linebackers to help blitz. Their freshman QB would see it, and check to a dive up the gut, for 20 or 30 yards. Over and over.

    …..I’ll look forward to seeing how Saban’s D does against them. Are they that good, or are we just that bad? Grades and photos up tomorrow.

    • theoldguard says:

      Well an early answer to that question is…Lsu’s D shut them down & it looks pretty clear bama’s D is better, so the answer is pretty evident to me. Plus, bama has them at home.

      On another note, the magic is gone boys.

    • challenger10 says:

      It was obvious on TV that our D line was manhandled. Did Wallace look as good in person as on TV. I thought his passing reads were for the most part correct. All of his throws were crisp and accurate except for one over throw. The best thing I say was he avoided the rush a couple of times but kept his eyes downfield and made the correct throw.

    I suppose Chizik will say that Auburn had a good week of practice after this loss. Chizik is breaking some records in a negative way. This was the worst defensive performance in Auburn history.

  36. BigDaddyAU says:

    Hate to say it but effort by the players was not there. Individual effort by Wallace, Uzomah, Mason, and Blake was good. ALL other players looked uninterested in playing. We have ZERO defensive leadership. PERIOD. Coaching has been a problem all year…but last night was a player effort issue.
