Blast Bama! (Auburn vs. Alabama, Iron Bowl Open Thread)

By on November 25th, 2017 in Football 3 Comments »
Iron Bowl Thread

A roaring venue awaits the Tide!

     War Eagle, everybody! Amen Corner concludes today in Auburn, as the top-ranked, undefeated Alabama comes calling. The winner of this Iron Bowl game will punch its ticket to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta next Saturday. The loser awaits bowl selection Sunday and will hope for a good destination. The stakes don’t get any higher in this annual slugfest.

     Most pundits in this game expect a tight, low-scoring game, despite the fact that both teams have high-performing offenses. Both teams like to establish the run, then burn the opposition with deadly passing. Both of these teams also field top-notch defenses that specialize in strangling opposing running games. It’s going to be a war on both sides in the trenches. This game will kick off at 2:30 PM Central Standard Time, and it will be nationally televised on CBS. No game in the country today has bigger implications.

     It should be a perfect day for football, to the fans attending this game. Kickoff temperature should be in the upper 60’s on a partly cloudy day. It should be not too cold and not too much sun at the start. The sun will set low over the south end zone in the 3rd quarter, and temps will fall into the upper 50’s. As it gets dark, a nearly half-moon will appear high in the sky if it is not too cloudy. There should be no chance for rain.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard for my usual play by play, armed with a big mug of coffee and a bowl of holiday Chex Mix. War Eagle, and let’s see if Auburn can continue a championship run against the Alabama Crimson Tide!

friedca as long as I can remember the uat student section, particularly the fraternity and sorority sections, have been incredibly profane and disrespectful when we play them. Like their sidewalk fans, their taunts tend not to be of a sporting nature. At sporting events and in formal business settings I’ve personally heard some of the most vile and disrespectful comments from them. They look down on us from the most hypocritical of perches. Uat graduate and author Gay Talise summed up their feelings toward Auburn men and women on the ESPN 30/30 show about the Auburn, Alabama rivalry, when he said, and I paraphrase somewhat, “We thought they (Auburn people) were illiterate, redneck, white trash, people who were attending what amounted to a trade school”. This attitude still permeates their alumni and ironically their sidewalk fan base.

friedca friedca November 25, 201711:58 pm

I’ve always said the Bama students and alumni aren’t bad. The rest of the fan base is abysmal though.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:13 pm

…..I figure bad language just shows one’s age. What bothers me more is the savaging of Alabama players. They have an incredible record, and have great effort. They don’t deserve that treatment, from their fans.

War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 November 25, 201711:11 pm

So glad TeT keeps the language clean, that rollbammaroll thread was gross.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:04 pm

….I am glad you enjoyed it! It’s been an evolution, for me. My family appreciates me more when I’m bent over the keyboard, than screaming and coaching the team on the living roomTV!

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201711:04 pm

Jay, ATM, and Acid do a GREAT job!! War Eagle everyone!! What a completely AUsome day! Good night!

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201711:03 pm

Well, that was a great win tonight. Even though I only started commenting tonight, I have been an avid reader of TET for the past few years. So, regardless of what happens next week, I will regard this season as remarkable and unforgettable.
Thanks to all who contribute to this site.
Thanks to Acid for the play by plays
War Eagle
God Bless

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:02 pm

…..War Eagle, everyone. What a delicious, decisive win over the Tide. It’s the second best in my lifetime. I’ve enjoyed, basked and savored the victory. WOW! It’s time to check out, sleep on it, and review the DVR tomorrow. War Eagle, everybody! It has been a historic day! Grades and such, tomorrow afternoon.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201711:02 pm

I was texting with Aubtigman after the game and he says it is easily the best Gameday experience except for maybe the ‘89 game when Bama first played in Auburn.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:58 pm

Honestly, I think louder. If possible, it really ramped up when the fans saw the effect it was having on Bama. The crowd and noise deserve credit for those miscues.

auburnelvis November 25, 201710:58 pm

He stays but how much his agent raids Auburns chaotic admin after two overdue wins is to be determined.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:57 pm

The regular SEC 2017 season is pretty much decided. Vandy beats Tennessee, to give the Vols a record 8-loss season, bya 42-24 score.
LSU is in control against a lame duck Texas Aggie squad, 45-21. It’s a close, save for the SEC title game, Auburn vs. Georgia. I can’t wait!

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201710:56 pm

just saw where Auburn will be fined 250K for the fans rushing the field. Maybe thats why they never let us rush the field when I was there.

friedca friedca November 25, 201710:56 pm

How was the volume compared to the GA game?

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201710:56 pm

i agree Acid. Gus is as safe as Gus wants to be. Well said. I think he stays as well.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:56 pm

speaking of loud – was it ever!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:54 pm

…..Here’s the problem with “home.” Gus has already shown that he’s more interested in moving up in the coaching world, than staying in Arkansas. He dumped Houston Nutt and Arkansas to move to Tulsa. Tulsa! And he’s come to Auburn twice. Auburn’s a pretty great place to live in. They’ve got decent schools, and low crime. You’re two hours from the beach, when you have a little time off. You’ve got a nutso fan base that will make it so loud that the opposing team can’t even snap the ball, when the game’s on the line. I think he stays.

auburnelvis November 25, 201710:52 pm

I’m super stoked about today’s game and the position Auburn is in! But I would like Gus to start a season off a little more seasoned and not look like a deer in head lights first three weeks.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:51 pm

I just think Gus would have want to go “home” at an extreme level to even consider such a move.

auburnelvis November 25, 201710:47 pm

No sain coach would downgrade from Auburn to Arkansas, if so that coach doesn’t have the mental brass to lead the otange and blue. Money play at best.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:47 pm

….Remember, Arkansas already has to pay Bret about $6 million dollars to get out of town. Then they’d have to pay Auburn’s nearly $7 buyout on Gus, AND then pay Gus SEC money, or at least $4 million dollars a year. I’ve seen ideas where the Walton (Walmart) family will pay for it all. I have to laugh! This is the family that pays their managers AND workers sub-poverty wages, and can’t replace shopping carts with square wheels. They are not paying all that, plus Gus at $5 million a year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:43 pm

…..Personally, I couldn’t say, on definite Arky to Gus reach-outs. However, I was disgusted yesterday, when the Arkansas interim athletic director fired Bert as soon as possible, then opined that any coach that could help Arkansas would love their facilities. This seemed a clear attempt to get into Auburn heads. Fortunately, it did not seem to work. This team came out, and took it out on Bama. It’s a team on a mission.

dyingculture dyingculture November 25, 201710:42 pm

… and I wonder if Borges has an invisible hand in all this.

auburnelvis November 25, 201710:41 pm

I heard if Gus leaves Saban is going to interview.

dyingculture dyingculture November 25, 201710:40 pm

another outstanding coaching job by the coaching staff. I dare say that the legendary Saban & co. were outcoached today. You’re doggone right we should do everything we can to keep the entire coaching staff together. Regardless of what anyone thinks of him, Malzahn has surrounded himself with an outstanding staff. That says something.

auburnelvis November 25, 201710:37 pm

War Damn Eagle! Auburn Tigers best team in Sec no doubt! David Housel tell you that!

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:36 pm

Gus is as safe right now at Auburn as he wants to be. There will be no more “hot seat” talk for him this year. Yeah, I’m a little concerned but, honestly, I’m more concerned with being able to keep our OC and DC.

dyingculture dyingculture November 25, 201710:34 pm

newsflash: during his postgame interview, Stidham flatly stated “I like throwing it to open people”.

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201710:18 pm

gotcha. has there been anything confirmed regarding AR pursuing Gus? AR would have to buy out Gus’s currenct conract right?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:14 pm

…..I’m not a contract negotiator, but the school needs to be working on this, and needs to pony up at least a new $5 mill a year deal, and maybe more. Who else, has had this kind of success against Saban?

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201710:09 pm

whats the etiquette (if there is any) as far as AR is concerned? when do they approach in force? Gus is sitting in a good position either way

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:06 pm

…..Gus was asked during the post-game presser, and angrily swatted it aside. He said that he most certainly did not have time to address rumors. That said, Auburn’s brass better pony up, or it could be a problem, during a title run attempt.

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201710:03 pm

I wonder if this win will quell the Malzahn to AR talk. I know finebaum likes to bring it up every chance he gets on his show

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 201710:02 pm

That bama thread was deep and delightful. i got lost over there for the past 30 minutes

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:01 pm

…..South Carolina has run into a buzz saw, against Clemson, trailing 34-0 late in the third. Not a particularly surprising result, but disappointing for the SEC.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:00 pm

…..Evening SEC scores, on a fantastic Rivalry Saturday day. Texas A&M is trying to give a fight to LSU, trailing 27-14 in the third, but these players clearly haven’t given up on head coach Kevin Sumlin, even if everyone else has.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:59 pm

….We can say that Chip Lindsey called a pretty brilliant game, we can say that Gus didn’t interfere. Fact of the matter is that this is still the Malzhan offense, with a few new wrinkles. Whoever was calling plays did an exemplary job, against a really nasty defense.`

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:57 pm

…..Ultimately, it seemed to me that Auburn was just a little bit better on both lines of scrimmage, and at most position groupings. Auburn called and executed a better game, and our shaky special teams play of late did not kill us. Fortunately, bama had more, like the bad snap/muff deal in the second half.

aubfan_in_woodstock aubfan_in_woodstock November 25, 20179:54 pm

Most Bammers on the ship have been ok, some have come up to me and said it was a great game and we kicked their butts. But, I have to say, I have been approached by so many fans from so many different schools and had my hand shaken in thanks for Auburn beating bama, lol, as if I had anything to do with it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:42 pm

…..I would caution that this stuff has legs, on the internet. When Auburn loses, and we will again at some point in the future, we can mourn it. We can point to this or that, as to what went wrong. But please, Auburn fans. Don’t let us be the ones drunk-posting on the net what a bunch of chumps our players and coaches are. Even if we lose, it’s great to be an Auburn Tiger. May the best team win, and don’t tear your team down on public boards.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20179:36 pm

Just a bunch of no class at all over there. Glad we have TET!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:13 pm

….My point was that they revel in some other school fan antics when those schools lose, but they can’t handle it themselves. I don’t mind swear-fests. What I really hate is how they savaged quarterback Jalen Hurts. I would not blame him if he transferred. Hurts scared me to death the whole game. I hate what they did. Ungrateful wretches!

BigBlue November 25, 20179:13 pm

I read some of that thread….I feel like I need a shower now

wpleagle wpleagle November 25, 20179:13 pm

With regard to the link Acid posted to the Roll Bama Roll site, I have never seen anything more disgusting in my life. Whoever edits that site should be prosecuted for allowing public pornography (language). And I totally agree about the comments being made about the Bama players. Sickening. Thank God I’m an Auburn Tiger, which it’s great to be!

BeachTiger BeachTiger November 25, 20179:08 pm

Acid, I have just gotten off of the “rollbamaroll” link you posted below and I’m speechless… I started reading their thread thinking I might get a laugh or two, but my god, how utterly disheartening. Some of the worst trash I’ve read in a long time. After a couple of minutes I had to close that crap down…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:04 pm

…..We have been doing one-game playoff games, for well over a month. We’ll do it again. Nothing matters right now, beyond beating Georgia again, next weekend. We worry about the playoff committee, later. And opponents after that. One game at a time. This team showed today that it can keep chopping wood.

MyAuburn MyAuburn November 25, 20179:03 pm

I think a Natty is a pipe dream, it is possible we will have to beat UGA and UAT twice in the same year to do it.
If UAT gets in even if we do beat UGA I don’t know if we can beat them again.
Beating them once per year is Ausome, twice would be a dream

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:02 pm

…..Toasted head coaches in SEC this year: Butch Jones (Tennessee), Jim McElwain (Florida), Kevin Sumlin (Texas A&M, likely), Bret Bielema (Arkansas), and Hugh Freeze (Ole Miss.) I’m not sure I’ve seen 5 SEC coaches gone in a season, ever.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:59 pm

…..I’m not sure it was really down to a job in Knoxville tonight, but kudos to Vanderbilt and head coach Derek Mason, for the 42-24 win over Tennessee. I don’t think Vanderbilt would have fired him this year, but I can only guess what it’s like to be a Commodore fan in that state. I’m glad they won.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:57 pm

…..Evening update! A couple of SEC games underway. LSU is dominating Texas A&M 20-0, near the half. Clemson is smashing South Carolina, by the same score. Word is that Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin will join the ranks of terminated SEC coaches, this weekend.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:55 pm

…..We won’t know till 4:00 PM in Atlanta, really. Auburn’s staff only releases reliable injury if a guy absolutely, positively has no chance to be back.

MyAuburn MyAuburn November 25, 20178:49 pm

Gus said shoulder, no word on severity. Will we have Pettway back by next Sat?

BeachTiger BeachTiger November 25, 20178:37 pm

Great Game to a great team!
Any word on KJ? Concerned and was wondering.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:35 pm

…..Actually I loved it that their obnoxious fans were feeling that much pain, but dang. They were being absolutely brutal to their own players. That’s terrible. They were a very beat-up team, and should not tear their players up like that.

friedca friedca November 25, 20178:33 pm

That thread was great

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20178:29 pm

It was $25k last time. I think it may double for repeat offenses.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:22 pm

……There is a Bama website out there that every Tuesday posts meltdown threads from other school blogs, when their team loses. I think their thread is one of the most glorious meltdowns I’ve ever seen!
https://www.rollbamaroll.com/2017/11/25/16699904/iron-bowl-second-half-open-thread

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:07 pm

…..And yes, we have our work cut out next weekend, to be sure, against a Georgia team that is certainly motivated and angry about what happened two weeks ago. There will be a serious battle over tickets, to see which fan base can fill up the new dome in Atlanta.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:06 pm

…..I’m trying to gauge what the national pundits might think, about the Iron Bowl. Do they give Auburn credit, or was it a Bama choke? That will likely influence committee members, unfortunately.

MyAuburn MyAuburn November 25, 20178:05 pm

That is assuming we beat UGA next Sat

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:05 pm

….Just running off memory, for that tidbit.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:04 pm

…..I’ll have to look it up to be sure, but I think 11 receptions in a game goes down for 2nd place, in the Auburn record book. I think Willie Gosha had 15 one game, back in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995. Auburn came back in that game, but lose on a missed field goal at the end, 30-28.

MyAuburn MyAuburn November 25, 20178:03 pm

If the committee leaves them out of the final four there will be some butt hurt Bammers. I can see it happening.
I can also see them voting them in as well as us and we will have to play UGA and UAT both twice in the same year. I dont know if my heart can take two more of those games.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20178:03 pm

…..Ryan Davis was the definition of “clutch,” today. Every time Auburn needed a big catch, when we were behind the chains and the pass rush seemed unstoppable, Davis got open, caught it, and made a play. Superb day, for Davis!

War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 November 25, 20177:57 pm

Ryan Davis, wow!

War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 November 25, 20177:56 pm

War Eagle!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20177:49 pm

……I am beyond ecstatic, over this win! To AU_ATL-FAN, yes. There were about a half dozen no calls on Bama, tonight.

aubfan_in_woodstock aubfan_in_woodstock November 25, 20177:44 pm

Some sad Bammers on my cruise ship tonight! WDE

wpleagle wpleagle November 25, 20177:39 pm

It’s gonna cost AU a bunch for that on-field stuff.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20177:37 pm

And they didn’t keep them off the field tonight, either!!

challenger10 November 25, 20177:35 pm

Thanks…I meant the Georga game so you understood me.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20177:34 pm

Way louder than last week for sure but I think louder than even the Georgia game

challenger10 November 25, 20177:28 pm

They were bad….I counted at least 3 bad holds not called on their line….the Pass interference was one sided. When we got called for too many men they had three men in motion 6 men on the line and no flag. Was the stadium as loud as last week?

friedca friedca November 25, 20177:28 pm

Yep they were terrible all game.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20177:25 pm

Man – stadium was fully charged! And did the refs look as bad on TV as they looked to us?

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20177:23 pm

And Reverse Rammer Bammer – whatever it is – NEVER gets old although I thought AU had said it wouldn’t be done anymore.

challenger10 November 25, 20177:22 pm

Just hope we have a healthy running back.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20177:18 pm

…..Can’t wait for next week!

wpleagle wpleagle November 25, 20177:10 pm

And neither the Georgia win nor the Alabama win needed a miracle. We beat the doo doo out of both of ’em!!!! WAAAR EAGLE. HEY. HEY . HEY.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20177:06 pm

…..It’s absolutely incredible, that these Tigers have knocked off the number one team in the nation, TWICE, in the last three weeks!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20177:04 pm

…..Definitely time for a sip of whiskey! War eagle!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20177:03 pm

…..Thanks! It was a wild one, and tense. I certainly had a sick feeling in my stomach, after Bama’s first second half drive.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20177:03 pm

…..Another game ball for Ryan Davis, who SHATTERED the single season receptions record today, with 11 catches for 139 yards.

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 20177:02 pm

….Stops the clock. 2nd and 1. Hurts will give to Jacobs, has the first down to the 28.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:43 pm

……1st and HUrts, will run.. Hurts goes out at the 25.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:43 pm

….Not a great punt, but it was killed inside the 20.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:42 pm

…..Setting up the return, fair caught by Diggs at the 15. 5:33 left in this one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:42 pm

….Aiden Marshall in, for the most important punt of his young career.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:41 pm

…..I agree, AET. Asking for an injury…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:41 pm

…..It’s 4th and about 3, and Alabama is down to 1 timeout remaining, trailing 26-14.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:41 pm

Really, having Stidham run a keeper?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:40 pm

….3rd and 4. Stidham will fake, keeper, he’ll get to midfield, and that’s all. Timeout Bama, with 5:40 left in the ball game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:40 pm

….They are taping Martin’s ankle. He’s had issues there, earlier in the year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:38 pm

…..A first down would just about do it, here. But about all Auburn has left to carry the ball are Malik Miller and Devan Barrett.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20176:38 pm

Ugh

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:38 pm

Come on, this is crazy!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:38 pm

There is 5:50 left in the ball game, and Auburn will have 3rd and 4, when we return. Tigers lead Alabama, 26-14!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:37 pm

……Three wides. Stidham will take, and give to Kam Martin, will break through, to midfield!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:36 pm

……Clock will start, after they set it. 2nd and 13.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:36 pm

…..KJ does limp off under his own power.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:36 pm

….On the day, KJ has 106 on the ground, 21 receiving, and a 3 yard touchdown pass.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:36 pm

Hamstring was what I was thinking as well.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:35 pm

…..Me, too. He’s had an MVP kind of day.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20176:35 pm

Bromance for KJ / hope he’s ok

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:35 pm

…..I’m worried it’s that hamstring he injured early this year.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:34 pm

Nothing is easy for us; nothing.

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 20176:34 pm

pulled groin?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:34 pm

…..Auburn will have 2nd and about 15, when they get this sorted out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:34 pm

….That stops the clock for Bama, with 6:21 left in the ballgame. Auburn still leads, 26-14.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:33 pm

…..Stidham under center, KJ, will bounce outside, and goes down for a big loss, KJ down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:33 pm

….Yes!!! Damion Harris jumped over, trying to go for the block!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:32 pm

…..That will give Auburn a first down, if they don’t pick it up!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:32 pm

……Marshall back to punt. Alabama is offside!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:32 pm

…..4th down, clock will wind under 7 minutes before they punt.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:32 pm

Terrible play call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:31 pm

…..3rd and 4, possession play for Auburn, KJ in the wildcat. Malik Miller in. Stidham out. Stove in motion, give Stove, will be tripped at the line.

…..Tide going, again. Hurts will fire underneath, SHORTTTTTT!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:29 pm

…..Terrible call.5 yard penalty, 4th and 4 at the Auburn 33.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:28 pm

…..Review 12 men on defense. And no call on the illegal snap?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:27 pm

…..At worst, this should be a replay the down. Illegal substitution is not a dead ball foul, and an illegal snap is.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:26 pm

On us

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:26 pm

12 men on the field.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:26 pm

…..Bama was moving 3 guys, when the ball was snapped.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:25 pm

Oh crap!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:25 pm

…..Uh oh. zebras huddling. What sort of villany are they planning?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:24 pm

…..Bama is in a whole heap of trouble, at this point.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:24 pm

…..The crowd caused that, it looked like. Two bad snaps before the QB was ready, by All-SEC center Bradley Bozeman!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:23 pm

….. Can I breathe, now? 9 minutes, 12 point AUBURN lead!

Squeakywheel November 25, 20176:23 pm

And Sabin says on national television WTF are you doing

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:23 pm

….At the Alabama 39! 9:19 left in the ball game, AUBURN’s BALL! They lead, 26-14!

Oh my!

Thank you students

….Back at the 38, that’s 4th down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:21 pm

…..3rd and 4. Hurts has 4 wides. Low snap, Bama has to cover it!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:21 pm

…..at the Auburn 33, 2nd and 4. Trips right. Hurts will be flushed, has to throw another one away!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:20 pm

…..At the Auburn 39. HUrts will give to Harris, will fight for about 6.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:20 pm

…..3rd an 8. Ridley in motion. Hurts flushed, will run, has the first down, and then some at the Auburn 39.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:19 pm

….Atkinson wiht good coverage.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:19 pm

…..2nd and 8. Hurts has time, misses the tight end.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20176:19 pm

They’re not yelling enough in the student section

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:18 pm

…..New set of downs. Three wides, give Harris, got two.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:18 pm

…..The counter, again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:18 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:16 pm

…..Carlson to kick off. Jacobs and Diggs deep. This one is WAY back, no returning that one!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:16 pm

…..Officials botched that every way they could. Auburn scored on the left side, and they moved the PAT back to the right hash. Gus was arguing about that, to no avail.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:15 pm

….So, with 12:49 left, Auburn holds a 26-14 lead over Bama.!

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:15 pm

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:15 pm

….that was a tackle eligible play, and Bama wasn’t buying it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:15 pm

…..Auburn back on the field, and another huddle. Official in there again. Weird look. Rolls right, has to throw it away.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:13 pm

…..I was frantically typing on that keeper touchdown, and my whole browser just disappeared and would not come back up, for a minute or so. It could not handle the excitement!

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20176:13 pm

Wow on the TD and the drive.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:12 pm

….I think the official messed that up. Auburn wanted to snap it quick and have Harris lead it, and the official got in the huddle and held up the play.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:12 pm

….Huddle. And Auburn calls time. Weird formation shown, there. Jalen Harris was in the backfield.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:11 pm

….Tigers going for two? With 12:49 left in the ball game, Auburn leads, 26-14.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20176:11 pm

Wow Stidham looks like he’s running in slo-mo, but War Eagle! Shove it, shove it across that line!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:10 pm

…..My browser crashed, but Stidham kept for the score!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:09 pm

…..1st and 10. Pistol set. Motion by Davis. KJ, will bull to the 16!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:07 pm

….1st and 10 Tigers at their own 37, to start the 4th quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:06 pm

…..Auburn has 330 total yards to this point, against the vaunted Tide defense.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20176:06 pm

They came away with nothing on that fake punt / looks like they’ll have to drive toward the Auburn student section in the 4Q

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:06 pm

…..That was a low snap on the FG attempt, but then JK Scott muffed it, picked it up, ran backwards and threw to Pappanostos, but well short. What a break for Auburn!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:04 pm

…..What a quarter! Auburn took an early SHOT from Bama, but answered with 10 unanswered points. Then, a red zone stop of the Tide!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:03 pm

….No, 1st and 10. That’s the end of the third quarter. Auburn leads, 20-14!

…..Bad snap, Scott…. throws well short! Auburn’s ball!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:01 pm

….Field goal team in for Bama. Papanostos, from 35 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:00 pm

….Call: INCOMPLETE! 4th down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20176:00 pm

…..Surely they will overturn the catch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:59 pm

…..That’s on the ground before the hands had control.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:59 pm

….That’s a trap all the way.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:59 pm

broken_towel broken_towel November 25, 20175:15 pm

If Auburn keeps s******g the bed like this and getting jobbed by the refs, this game will be unwinnable. Gus is historically awful after half and saban is at his best then

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:11 pm

…..On offense, I’d expect Bama to try to use the sideline more, this half, with some quicker throws and speed sweeps. They will have the ball first.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:10 pm

…..None of those no calls was a game-changer, though. No guarantee we’d have gotten a TD after the interference penalty.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:08 pm

…..Thus far, 3 glaring no-calls by the officiating crew. The first was Nick Saban 15 yards out onto the field after a Bama 3 ‘n’ out. Second was a blatant pass interference no-call on a bomb towards Darius Slayton. Finally, Bama ran into kicker Daniel Carlson, and that wasn’t flagged, either.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:03 pm

…..Kerryon Johnson has 55 rushing yards on the day, 21 receiving yards, and a touchdown pass.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:02 pm

…Ryan Davis has 7 catches for Auburn, for 74 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:02 pm

…..Some were questioning whether Auburn could cover Calvin Ridley. Answer thus far? 1 catch, 5 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20175:01 pm

…..A single turnover for each team, each on the quarterback. Auburn has a big yardage advantage, but it only translated to 3 points. Alabama will receive, to start the second half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:59 pm

…..No call on Alabama running into Carlson, either.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:59 pm

…..At the half, Auburn leads Alabama, 10-7!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:59 pm

…..Carlson and co. line it up again. Place, up and GOOOOOOD!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:58 pm

…..This is chip-shot distance, for Daniel Carlson, about 33 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:57 pm

…..Saban can do this twice more, if he wants.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:57 pm

……Gonna try to ice him. Timeout Bama, with 5 seconds left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:57 pm

……Saban letting the clock run? Wow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:56 pm

…..3rd and 8. Stidham will have big pressure, blitz coming. Fires over the middle, way short at the 16.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:56 pm

…..Tigers HAVE to get points out of this drive. They are ahead in total yardage by 214 to 128 for Bama, but it’s still tied, thanks to a lost snap at the 4, earlier.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:55 pm

….Timeout Tigers. It’s a 7-7 tie ball game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:54 pm

……3rd and 8. Clock winds under a minute, and it finally stops at 48 seconds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:54 pm

….Without Chandler Cox in there, that was a wasted play call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:54 pm

…..2nd and 8. Huddle. Under center, give KJ, nothing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:53 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:52 pm

…..Stove in motion. Give to KJ, gets to the Bama 45.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:51 pm

….Auburn has 3:01 left in the half, and a chance to do some more damage.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:51 pm

…..Scott to punt it away. Returnable, but Roberts will fair catch at the Auburn 49.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:50 pm

…..Had the matchup the Tide wanted, but Peters was having none of it!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:48 pm

…..Let’s see what Alabama can do from their two.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:46 pm

….Tide pinned deep. Can Auburn get a stop?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:46 pm

….Best punt of the year!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:46 pm

……Marshall will kick high, hits at the one… DOWNED!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:45 pm

….In comes Aiden Marshall to punt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:45 pm

…..Not even close to the first.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:45 pm

…..3rd and 12 for Auburn. Trips right. 3 man front. Steps up, will run, hit…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:44 pm

…..2nd and 14. Pistol set now, for Stidham back in the game. Motion across, give KJ, only a couple.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:44 pm

……JK Scott to kick off. Pooch kick, will hit at the 15, Igbinoghene, will go out around the 23.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:40 pm

….Alabama looked like they were running that quarterback counter, then Hurts dropped back and launched one. I think the secondary thought the play was over.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20174:39 pm

Those missed three points would be nice right now.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20174:38 pm

Dinson was asleep at the wheel

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:38 pm

…..PAT is up and good, and with 8:31 left in the half, this game is tied at 7-all.

Squeakywheel November 25, 20174:25 pm

Yep

…..That should have been fielded. We lost 20 yards on that bounce.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:25 pm

…..Roberts drops deep. J. K. Scott will launch one, bounces high, to the AUburn 22.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20174:19 pm

Each of those fumbles have been close to the goal line.

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 20174:18 pm

something like that

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20174:18 pm

…..Auburn is able to mismatch the Bama coverage on the edge, but I’d expect Saban to switch to more combo man and 3 deep zones, and try to keep Stidham from reading things as well.

AETiger AETiger November 25, 20174:18 pm

Isn’t that the third QB center fumble this season?

I_AUm_The_Stig November 25, 20174:17 pm

That will quiet the crowd

…..It may not really be the case, but the official site is listing Tre’ Williams as a starter at linebacker, and Darius James at right tackle, Golson at left tackle.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:47 pm

…..Now the Auburn band is out, and we’ll have the pregame show.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:42 pm

…..Special teams warmups underway in Auburn! Shockingly, the stadium looks pretty full, an hour from kickoff!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:40 pm

….They take a Louisville TD off the board, and that score is actually 37-10, at the end of the third.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:39 pm

…..Some 3rd quarter scores…
Louisville 41, Ky 14. Embarrassing.
Florida State 24, UF 16. Gators hanging around.
Georgia 31, Georgia Tech 7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:33 pm

….It would help Auburn, though. I can see national folks passing a 2 loss Auburn team over, for a 2 loss Buckeye team. They did it to Penn State, last year.

War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 November 25, 20172:31 pm

Td Michigan. Crap, i could see a one loss Alabama get in the playoff If osu loses and then wins the B10.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:30 pm

…..Georgia scores again. WIth a 31-7 lead, they can rest the starters for the Championship down the road, next week.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:27 pm

…..I’m hearing that not only is Auburn Arena going to be open with the game on the big screen, but they are opening Plainsman Park up for the game, too. Must be a huge crowd on hand, in Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:26 pm

…..I don’t see doing alternate uniforms, if you can’t read the numbers, they get away from your regular school colors, AND they don’t look as good as your regular uniforms.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:25 pm

….I don’t really oppose alternate uniforms now and then. However, the fad seems to trend towards gray, and other hard to see colors. They don’t have the players’ names on those, most of the time. And the trim is usually either minimal, or non-existent.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:24 pm

…..I’d rather see UGA lose, and have some doubts going into Atlanta. However, it helps Auburn’s strength of schedule, if they have a better record. Especially if Auburn then beats them twice.

War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 November 25, 20172:23 pm

The Ohio State uniforms are atrocious. Why would you wear gimmick uniforms for one of the biggest traditional rivalries in football?

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20172:21 pm

We need UGA to win, correct?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:14 pm

…..Turn out the lights, in Atlanta, Georgia. Georgia starts the second half with a stop, then drives for a touchdown. The Bulldogs lead Georgia Tech, 24-7. I’m not seeing the Tech wishbone able to play from that far behind…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20172:04 pm

…..Plain Old Fashioned Hate… Michigan came into the ‘Shoe, and took a 14-0 lead. However, a few quarterback runs have opened things up for Ohio State. The game is tied at 14-14, at the half.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 20171:53 pm

Yeah, the Georgia defense looked really, really bad on that GT TD pass.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20171:40 pm

…..We are a little under 2 hours from Iron Bowl kickoff! A few halftime SEC scores:
Georgia 17, Georgia Tech 7.
Louisville 31, Kentucky 10
Florida State 24, Florida 13.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20171:33 pm

…..They had man to man coverage on twin receivers. The two receivers criss-crossed, and both defenders took the inside guy. The split end was WIDE open for the touchdown. After the play, you could see the two Georgia players pointing fingers at each other! Hilarious!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20171:31 pm

…..Tech scores, and the Georgia lead is cut to 14-7 near the half. I was laughing at the two Georgia pass defenders, on that one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20171:23 pm

…..It’s a tough day for the SEC vs. the ACC. Georgia is winning 14-0 over G. Tech, but Florida is down 24-7 at home to FSU, and Kentucky is getting thumped at home by Louisville, by the same score.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:54 pm

…..Three SEC games have finished the first quarter.
Georgia 7, Georgia Tech 0
Louisville 17, Kentucky 7
Florida State 14, Florida 7, early in the 2nd quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:47 pm

…..The Pacific Ocean keeps temps down. Drive ten miles inland, and it goes up to 70 and beyond, quickly.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201712:46 pm

We were in Santa Monica a few years ago in JULY and it never got above 60!

I would love to go on a cruise to Alaska! That might be doable in the next few years, lol.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:43 pm

…..Should be a fun trip, but dress warm! We did California’s Central Coast last May the week before Memorial Day, and our high temperature on the beach was 55 degreesF.

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201712:42 pm

On my wife’s bucket list is a cruise to Alaska – so, for her Christmas, I booked a 7-day cruise to Alaska in mid-June with 2 days each in Vancouver before and after. It doesn’t interfere with Auburn football so I’m good with it. I’ve known about how badly she wants to go so I’ve been saving for about 3 years. She has earned it, trust me!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:38 pm

…..Things getting chippy in Kentucky. Lamar Jackson and a teammate got into a shoving match with a couple of Kentucky players, and 4 personal fouls were assessed!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:30 pm

…..Florida State takes an early 7-0 over Florida, and Louisville leads over Kentucky by the same score.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:29 pm

…..Georgia 7, Georgia Tech 0. Georgia dominating up front.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:24 pm

…..The bad thing is that Jake Fromm has thrown into coverage twice, and the Jackets dropped it both times.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:23 pm

…..A very Pat Dye play, for Georgia. Ran a draw, hit in the backfield, on 3rd and 6. However, Michel would not go down, and the Jackets could not tackle. First down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:21 pm

…..No worries about Georgia, today. They appear to be MUCH more powerful on both lines of scrimmage, than Georgia Tech, early. Jackets appear tight, and mistake-prone, too.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:01 pm

…..The rest of the Gameday crew picked Bama. And yes, Corso looks really silly with an elephant head on!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201712:00 pm

…..Charles’ pick? “In 2003, it was the Kick-six. Today, it’s the Kick-_ss!”

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:50 am

…..Charles Barkley is on Gameday, wearing a white Auburn football jersey, number 34!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:49 am

….The UCF schedule was Florida International, at Maryland, Memphis, at Cincinnati, East Carolina, at Navy, Austin Peay, at SMU, UConn, at Temple, and South Florida. One power-5 game, and the Terrapins were one of the worst teams in the B1G, this year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:45 am

…..UCF’s problem is the schedule. The Committee really looks at that. UCF’s best win is probably beating Maryland, 38-10.

aubfan_in_woodstock aubfan_in_woodstock November 25, 201711:43 am

I agree that it is a shame, I just don’t think it would necessarily be a good match up with any of the other teams in the playoffs. If they expanded it to maybe a 6-8 team play off, then it would allow for the other conferences (assuming an undefeated season scenario) to have at least a chance to play for it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:37 am

…..My guess is that despite being undefeated, the Playoff committee likely won’t even consider Central Florida. And, Nebraska fired Mike Riley this morning, and is already hard at work trying to lure UCF head Scott Frost home to Nebraska, where Frost was once a star quarterback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:36 am

…..I would hate to be a Central Florida fan, right now. They just completed a 12-0 regular season, and are odds-on favorites to win the C-USA title game. However…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:30 am

…..We did a cruise to the Yucatan back in 2006. It was tremendously fun! I’m guessing ship wi-fi is a lot better, these days. When we cruised, we had to take the laptop down to an internet cafe, and pay something like $25 for 10 minutes. And it was basically dial-up speed.

aubfan_in_woodstock aubfan_in_woodstock November 25, 201711:27 am

On a cruise ship heading back to Tampa from Mexico. Hoping their internet will be good enough to stream the game as they don’t seem to be showing it anywhere on the ship! War Eagle everyone!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:20 am

…..Mike Riley is out, after a disastrous year at Nebraska. That program has fallen a long, long way in the past two decades.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:17 am

…..Now, we’ll just have to see if he can get quarterback Josh Rosen to come back for his senior year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:16 am

……Chip Kelly has apparently been hired at UCLA. Wow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201711:02 am

…..Healthy! Heh. Sign on the day on gameday? Something to the effect of “if Rece Davis can get into the University of Alabama, anyone can!”

friedca friedca November 25, 201711:02 am

Envy yall at the game. Haven’t been to an Iron Bowl since 03. I’ll be yelling with the kids from San Diego. War Eagle!

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:58 am

I did coffee at 4:30 ET this morning and then a cup on the drive down. Got the 6 tents, generator, satellite and TV set up and now Bloody Mary time! (I have celery and pickled green beans to make it healthy.)

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:54 am

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:52 am

Tailgate next to us won some type of contest and Chik-Fil-A delivered 50 chicken biscuits. They only have about 12 people so they shared with quite a few!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:50 am

…..Time for some breakfast and some Gameday!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 201710:49 am

ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN November 25, 201710:48 am

It’s a great day here in Auburn! Weather, as you state, is perfect.
WAR EAGLE!! Let’s do this!

I hope Auburn won’t spot UAT a td like they did UGA.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:54 am

…..I tend to pay a bit of extra attention to games in Texas. I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:53 am

…..I’ve missed a lot of action, this fall. This holiday weekend, I got to see a great dog fight of a game in the Egg Bowl Thursday night. Yesterday, it was Arkansas and Missouri going toe to toe all day. I was in and out on that game, trying to get a few things done around the house. Friday night, I had a good time watching Texas Tech and Texas, as the Red Raiders came back and stunned the Longhorns 27-23 at the end.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 25, 20179:51 am

…..And we are live! It has been a fantastic, long college football weekend, and the best is yet to come!

    Acid, I want to start today with your opinion. Where will Miami be ranked come Tuesday night and where will we be after we beat UAT?

  2. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In my opinion, Miami should fall a long way. Pitt beat them by 10, and Pitt is a team with a 5-7 losing record. Auburn’s two losses are to a defending national champion with 10 wins, and an LSU team with 8 wins, thus far.
