Crush the Commodores!

By on October 20th, 2012 in Football 411 Comments »

Vanderbilt Stadium at Dudley Field
(Auburn at Vanderbilt, Open Thread.)

     War Eagle, everybody! It’s another early game day for the Auburn Tigers! At 11:21 AM Central Time, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville. There should be an azure blue sky with temperatures rising from the low 60s at kickoff into the mid to upper 60s by game’s end. The cool breeze will feel nice, but don’t forget your sunblock if you’re attending the game!

     It’s an unprecedented time in modern Auburn history, as the Tigers are more than seven point underdogs to the Commodores. If there’s to be any chance for a bowl trip this year, the Tigers must start winning here in Nashville. A loss in this game would put Auburn in the position of having to run the table from here on out, to qualify.

     Expect a youth movement from the Tigers today, as true freshman middle linebacker Cassanova McKinzy has been given the keys to the car and the starting nod. True freshmen corners Joshua Holsey and Jonathan Jones will likely start also, with the task of containing dangerous Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews.

     As always, feel free to sound off here, and help us cheer on the Tigers! We’ll be here all game long, calling ‘em like we see ‘em! War Eagle, and let’s go beat Vandy!

    I like that he’s putting the younger guys in there. I think that is problaby the best going forward and looking to next year.

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      ……One must be careful doing that, as a head coach. If you’ve got a junior or senior who’s busted his tail for you his whole career, and you bench him for “the future,” you might really mangle the team’s morale. On the other hand, if the senior figures he’s not getting a ring, or an NFL offer, he might be mailing it in after a 1-5 start. By all means, start the freshman! In essence, it depends upon the situation.

  2. Derrick Roberts Derrick Roberts says:

    It is going to be extremely refreshing to see some new faces out on the field today.

  3. AubTigerman AubTigerman says:

    Good morning all. A great autumn day for football.

    We had planned to attend today’s game but circumstances have changed those plans. We hope to check in with the Acid man for the best game day open thread on the net.
    Hope all of you will do the same.

    War Eagle and Beat Vandy!

  4. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    Morning all, while I am on duty today I will be watching the stream on the computer and lurking around here.

    War Eagle!!

  5. Joeyfootball says:

    CMc looks like our answer in the middle. He will force the pass, then it’s sack time!

  6. KoolBell KoolBell says:

    I am hoping that all the younger players being put in games, signal increased competition at these spots, and not the staff mortgaging the rest of this season, in hopes of better play next year.
    I have been unwilling to say this, but this may also be a sign that the team is fractured somewhat, with the warning shot being fired by Blake and T’Bell saying the young players need to “get in line”. If the older players have created a fracture, then the staff is 100% right in setting them down, so that those who want to play, will.

  7. AU34 says:

    Does anybody know if dismukes or ford are playing?

  8. AubTigerman AubTigerman says:

    Now we’re hearing that Lutzenkirchen made the trip but may be injured.

    Hey Acid, If you haven’t already – Check your email.

    WAR EAGLE EVERYONE. I was born in 1938 in Big BR,LA. I became an AUBURN TIGER in 1963 when I first stepped off the train in the Lovliest Village and have been one since. I’m suffering through this season just like all of you. Even though I live in the shadow of those other tigers I have never failed to wear something that says “AUBURN” since I returned to Big BR,LA in 1967. Just remember “This too shall pass” and the AUBURN ship will be righted.

    Never forget: IT’S GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER!!!

    WAR EAGLE !!! GO BIG BLUE !!!

    domaucan1 from Big BR,LA.

    P.S. I love this blog!! Keep up the good work!

  11. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..War Eagle, everybody! It’s less than 20 minutes till kickoff!

  12. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..We’re doing something bit different this time. New comments should appear at the top of the comments section, instead of the bottom. That may make things easier to follow.

  13. challenger10 says:

    Good Morning All and War Eagle.

  14. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..News from Stan and Rod, Phillip Lutzenkirchen will not be available for this game. Wow.

  15. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jeffery Whitaker is not dressed, either.

  16. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..According to Aaron Brenner at the Columbus Ledger Enquirer, Mike Blakeley and Erique Florence did not make the trip. Lutzenkirchen apparently has a hip injury, and may be done for the season.

  17. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Looks like a lot of empty seats at Vanderbilt Stadium, and few Auburn fans made this trip. Vandy wins the toss, and elects to receive.

  18. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Cody Parkey to kick it off. The boot, and Howell takes it nine yards deep, touchback.

  19. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vanderbilt out in the gun. Stacy up the gut, stopped by McKinzy!

  20. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Three wides, and a false start kills the wildcat.

  21. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 13. Empty backfield, here’s a low throw, Boyd scoops it out for a ten yard gain.

  22. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2. Wildcat, and Auburn is blown backward, first down.

  23. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of Vandy downs at the 36. Toss back to Stacy, and he’s dumped by McNeil, 3 yards.

  24. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Quick screen, Boyd has about 20. Matthews.

  25. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st down. Two backs, shotgun. ROgers misses his man, well covered by Holsey.

  26. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Takes, and draw to Stacey, and he’s finally put down at the 36.

  27. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 8, possession play. Dime defense. Here comes the blitz, dumps over the middle, and Whitehead will pull the receiver down short of the stake.

  28. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and 2, Stacy keeps on the wildcat, 5 yards right up the gut, first down.

  29. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……At the Tiger 25. Wildcat again, and he’s got two more. Zac Stacey.

  30. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Under center, give to Stacey, and he’s juking down to the 17. Auburn unable to draw a bead.

  31. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2. Jumbo set. tate takes the snap, and McNeil with the trip, won’t make it.

  32. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and 2, going again. Here’s the I set, Tate will be close on the off tackle left. First down.

  33. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Auburn 15. Shotgun, roll out, flare, and the tight end is down to the 8.

  34. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 3. Tate back in. Fake, and Rogers keeps, closed down by Whitehead. Nothing.

  35. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 3. Wildcat, Tate takes, will keep, and walk in touchdown.

  36. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….That was done nearly all on the ground, and the Commodores just waxed Auburn on the line.

  37. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The PAT is good, and with 6:35 left in the first quarter, Vanderbilt leads 7-0.

  38. challenger10 says:

    blown off the ball at the point of attack every play coupled with poor tackling……

  39. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..If Auburn continues to get blown off the ball like that first drive, Vanderbilt will likely match the 41 points Ole Miss put up.

  40. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the coffee scoreboard, Texas A&M up on LSU 9-0, early in the game. We get those guys next week at Jordan Hare.

  41. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Here’s the boot, and it’s very short, and McCalebb his it out to the 26, tripped.

  42. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I set, slot left. Mason on the give, and he’s got about 18 yards!

  43. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….That was a wide side give, BTW.

  44. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……New set of Tiger downs. And we’ve got a vandy lineman down. Walks off, Johnell Thomas.

  45. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New starters this week, Jaylon Denson at receiver, Dismukes is back at center.

  46. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Two tights, pistol, Mosley misses the handoff, and keeps, losing two yards. Hot mess into the short side.

  47. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Wildcat, 2nd and 11. Bobbled snap, and Mason goes down. And of course Prosch was lifted from the game.

  48. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 13. Blitz, short throw to Reed, no chance. Got only 6. Terrible.

  49. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Another meltdown drive. Clark launches this one, hits at the three, bounces into the endzone for a touchback.

  50. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..This page is refreshing pretty quickly, but is anyone else seeing it, and able to participate?

  51. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Just saw Challenger 10’s comment, answered my question. Thanks!

  52. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers were on the field on D for 8 minutes, and 16 plays. Then the offense is done in 4.

  53. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    I don’t know if the comments are working correctly. I keep seeing numbers increase, but no new posts.

  54. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Dump to Boyd, pulled down by Mincy. 8 yards.

  55. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 2, and Stacey, will go down for nothing, Bates!

  56. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2, Wildcat, poor tackling, and Stacey is all the way to the Auburn 45.

  57. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Our offense was Loeffler’d. No wonder the defense is worn out by the 4th. I should take a nap. Maybe we’ll win in my dreams!

  58. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Rogers takes, will miss Stacey on the screen, incomplete.

  59. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Commodores. Shotgun, and Auburn calls time. With 2:05 left in the first quarter, Vanderbilt has the 7-0 lead.

  60. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Don’t have the sound on, but it looked like Pat Dye was telling that kid that he needed to, “be a man.”

  61. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Our offense looks like a steaming pile of Loeffler. Was that Prosch split out wide? Ummmm…. WHY?

    • tigertracker says:

      Ok time for a 10-12 play drive full of mason and prosch! Loeffler in booth or on sideline today? Also what is word on lutz?

  62. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I guess I should be used to it, but my blood boils when Loeffler gets a 20 yard run, then lifts the fullback and runs with no blocking into the boundary. Loffler’d.

  63. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Vanderbilt, toss, Tate will bulldozer to the 41.

  64. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Quick screen, no one covered Matthews, their best receiver. Seven yards, first down.

  65. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……1st and 10. Trips right. Handoff, Tate fumbles, and does Auburn have it?

  66. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Officials blew it dead. Replay shows the ball coming out, should go to Auburn.

  67. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Angelo Blackson with the hit, and that ball was definitely coming out.

  68. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Hopefully we can catch a break at some point in the turnover department. We’re dead last in margin there.

  69. challenger10 says:

    has Bob Davey said any call should go our way all season?

  70. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Actually looks in slow motion, Jonathan Mincy hit Tate’s elbow, and knocked that ball out.

  71. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Davey. Now you know why I have the sound off!

  72. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I thought Dave Neal and Andre Ware were doing this one.

  73. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Ruling: Auburn’s football! With 36 seconds left in the first, the Tigers have it at their own 33.

  74. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Tigers in the I. Mason to the left, only a yard.Prosch actually missed a block.

  75. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Even in the I-formation, we can’t be consistent….

  76. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The first quarter ends, with Vanderbilt leading 7-0.

The idea is to keep the thread from bogging down, and thus far it’s working pretty well. We’re constantly trying to improve what we do, here on Trackemtigers.com!

  78. tigertracker says:

    whats up with lutz today? caught a blip that he may be injured?
    Can we please get 3 I form plays in a row???

  79. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Screen to McCalebb, and he trips over the yard line.

  80. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 7. Two backs. Mosley scrambles, and he’ll go down for a loss of one.

  81. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….To Tigertracker, Lutz has a hip injury, and may be done ffor the year.

  82. tigertracker says:

    It’s official. Even special teams has caught the stupid bug

  83. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Decent punt by Clark, but McCalebb gets hit on the head by the punt, and that’s interference.

  84. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Commodores will start at the 42, instead of being pinned deep.

  85. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……False start Vandy!

  86. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 15 for Vanderbilt. Toss to Kimbrow, and he’s got about 2.

  87. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 13. I set. Rogers to throw. Deep corner, and Mincy batted it away!

  88. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 13. Shotgun, two backs. Time, and he dumps it to Boyd on the middle scree, Mincy snatches him down, well short!

  89. tigertracker says:

    Did we just force a punt???

  90. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..So, we’ll Stacey? Fake punt, snap to Tate, and the ball comes out, and it’s Auburn’s football at the Vandy 37!

  91. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That was a dumb call!

  92. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Now if the defense or special teams could just score, we might just win this game!

  93. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    Pistol, Mason to the short side, Mason fighting, churning, and gets about 6 ALL BY HIMSELF!

  94. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Wildcat. Give to McCalebb to the wide side, and he’s got room to the 22!

  95. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of Tiger downs. Here’s the wildcat again. Wallace takes, give to McCalebb to the short side again, only a yard. A Counter.

  96. tigertracker says:

    I want to keep running but if we are gonna play wallace he has to throw the ball!

  97. tigertracker says:

    well that had some zip on it!

  98. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 9, empty backfield for Wallace. Motion by Denson, screen to Lewis, he’s got a block, down to the 12! Fooled ‘em, even going to the short side!

  99. tigertracker says:

    that was a wealth of youth on that play!

  100. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    1st and goal at the nine. Jumbo set, and Mason into the short side, away from the blocking, gets to the seven.

  101. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and goal at the 7. Offset I. Mason, losing yardage to the ten. AGAIN to the short side, running to the right, away from our best linemen.

    • challenger10 says:

      looked like prosh got blown up

    • Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

      Honestly, what do you think is going through the OCs head with all these types of calls? He’s so consistent with the short-side stuff that I’d more than likely counter that every play if I was the DC.

  102. tigertracker says:

    sure is ALOT OF ROOM on the wide side for mason to get shifty

  103. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and goal at the ten, can’t get lined up, and Auburn has to burn a time out. That’s their second. With 8:48 left in the half, Auburn trails 7-0.

    …..They will be 3rd and goal at the 10, when play resumes.

  104. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Hi All!

    I watched the first quarter…now I’m in my home office listening online. I have a deadline on Thursday that I simply can’t justify spending the whole game not working on….not because I’ve given up…for the record….I’ll pop back in from time to time to check in….

    War Eagle!

  105. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Watch how Vandy lines up on the short side next time. We could speed sweep it to Omac to the left, and score. Notice all the empty grass that way…

  106. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..War Eagle, TotM!

  107. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Also looks like any attempts to convey to Loeffler that short side run plays are bad have failed. Ugh!

  108. tigertracker says:

    WIDE OPEN…

  109. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and goal Tigers. Empty backfield, Mosley will get Mason back in. Mosley just misses Blake on the slant. Incomplete.

  110. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    I will say listening to Rod and Stan is a real treat…even if we just blew that last play.

  111. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Blown coverage, and just a terrible throw. Parkey is in, and it’s up and good!

  112. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..With 8:10 left in the half, Auburn has cut the lead to 7-3.

  113. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    How did Wallace look on his pass?

  114. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I’ve been listening to Stan and Rod exclusively this year, instead of the TV sound. They’ve got the audio synched up a lot better this year, and maybe even a half second faster than the TV.

  115. tigertracker says:

    So did the announcer just not see the corner standing 7 yds from coates? Granted that was a soft zone look, but would’ve taken a heck of an effort to get the ball to coates on a quick throw and him make the guy miss. However a fade route would have been a money play with a good throw. Heck coates even goes up and gets bad ones when given the opportunity. That should be our play down here. jump ball.

  116. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That pass by Wallace was pretty. Took the snap and rifled it with no windup. Took maybe a tenth of a second.

  117. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Parkey to kick, and it’s into the wind, and is still 5 yards deep in the end zone!

  118. tigertracker says:

    good stick my Cmac

  119. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Offset I. Give left, and Stacey gets two. McKinzy was there.

  120. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Shotgun. Blitz, and Rogers escapes, and throws it out of bounds. Bates on the pressure.

  121. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 8, possession play. Rodgers in the gun. Fires, and Holsey knocks it out on the square-in!

  122. tigertracker says:

    frosh holesy looked good there

  123. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th down. And a tremendous punt, Bray loses three yards backpedalling. 52 yards!

  124. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will start at their own 17.

  125. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Defense looks a LOT more aggressive with the younger players in there. They make up for their inexperience with actual talent.

  126. tigertracker says:

    acid will the auto archive keep us from breaking the internet this week or do we need to start a new thread?

  127. Joeyfootball says:

    If we can get two more FG’s…….we win!

  128. tigertracker says:

    TAMU up 12-0 on LSU at kyle field today

  129. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Tigers out in the offset I. Screen to Prosch, and he gets about three on the checkdown.

  130. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7. Give to Mason to the short side, gets to the 25.

  131. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    I can’t say I like this auto-archive. I keep having issues with the comments appearing.

  132. tigertracker says:

    looks like prosch is not taking on lutz role?? keep seeing him out wide and don’t like it.

  133. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Wallace in, pistol. handoff McCalebb, nothing doing, AND a flag. Trying to run a counter on 3rd and 2? mind-blowing.

  134. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Short-side counter from the shotgun on third and short. Yeah, let’s try that.

  135. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Chopblock call. Will Vandy take it?

  136. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    170 lb squirrel into the middle for no gain, imagine that…Loefflered again

  137. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    3rd and 2 and the playcalling killed it.

  138. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jaylon Denson on the chop block. Declined, and Auburn will have to punt.

  139. tigertracker says:

    when will this idiocy end?

  140. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Short punt, and Krause is spilled at the 43. Only 35 yards against the wind.

  141. challenger10 says:

    3rd and 2 should equal I formation two tights

  142. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Toss to Stacey, and Evans dropps him for yard. Another toss, and Stacey cuts back for five.

  143. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……3rd and 4. Shotgun, trips right. Rogers escapes, and he’ll scramble up the gut, and he is stood up at the stake. Think he’ll get it based on that spot.

  144. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Measurement, inches short.

  145. tigertracker says:

    woohoo!

  146. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vandy out heavy. They’ll load left, and Stacey is ahead over the line, but cuts back, gives up ground, and is cut down short!

  147. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn’s ball!

  148. tigertracker says:

    cassanova deep in the backfield. you don’t see that from holland…

  149. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here come the Tigers. I set, two tights. Fake, and here’s an out to Blake, and he’s close to the first down, and has it!

  150. tigertracker says:

    those curls will be open all day. no one has covered them yet this year.

  151. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Mason, will hurdle a tackler, and he’s down to the 30! Power running.

  152. tigertracker says:

    feed the beast!

  153. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……From the Vandy 30. I set again. Fake, fires to Blake deep, and he’s out at the eight!

  154. tigertracker says:

    mason 8 carries for 38. avg of 4.8 a carry

  155. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..First and goal at the 8. Shotgun? What? give OMAC, and he dives…short. Off the left.

  156. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and goal. Give to Mason, bobbles, but he is IN!

  157. tigertracker says:

    mancrush in for the score!

  158. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..TOUCHDOOOOWWWN< AUBURN!

  159. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey is up and good, and with 1:21 left in the half, Auburn has TAKEN THE LEAD, 10-7!

  160. AETiger AETiger says:

    I am not sure how good Mason is, it is just good to see a back run with authority. Please Loeffler, keep feeding him the ball. Good drive. Great job “D” on the set up.

  161. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Loeffler tried to kill that drive with the shotgun handoff on first and goal, but could not do it. McCalebb actually came up with a good inside run.

  162. tigertracker says:

    how many of you caught that we just about missed that handoff on the TD. noticed it on the replay. moseley had it in the wrong hand!

  163. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The Tiger D has played well of late. Now it’s up to them not to wilt and give up a late scoring drive.

  164. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Cody Parkey to kick it off. The boot, and it’s two yards deep, Kimbrow brings it out, bulling out to the 22.

  165. tigertracker says:

    @ AE isn’t running with authority what makes a back good? I mean yes you want one with speed, vision, balance, and power, but ultimately I prefer a guy that has some combination of all that which mason does. He just plays at a different intensity than everyone else on the field. you could first notice it in his kickoff returns last year.

      Agree. Sorry if what I typed sounded like disrespect to Mason. Not my intent. Just meant to say it is good to see someone/anyone on the team stepping up. Mason is doing it. I just hope he doesn’t get Loefflered.

  166. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vandy will throw, flushed, and he’s hit on the sideline to the 28.

  167. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    2nd and 4. Flags, and that’s movement! Seymour, guard.

  168. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Back it up, 2nd and 9. 1:08 left, Vandy has all three timeouts. Keeper Rogers, and he’s a yard short.

  169. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Quick screen, easy first down, but the receiver does not go out.

  170. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Dumps to Stacey, and he’s up to the 49, and a timeout with 38 seconds left in the half.

  171. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 3. Rogers takes in the gun, and will dump to the tight end Kentera, first down.

  172. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Rogers dumps to Kentera, out at the Auburn 38.

  173. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dumps to Stacey, missed tackles, and he’s all the way down to the Auburn 22.

  174. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    We are so susceptible to the short dump…..

  175. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Vandy had touble lining up, and spikes it with 20 seconds left.

  176. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 10. Dumed over the middle, incomplete. Trying to hit the quick out.

  177. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 10. Auburn burns their last timeout. 16 seconds left. Vandy still has two left.

  178. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 10 Vanderbilt. Jordan Rogers in the gun. Will take, and keep up the gut, and he’s inside the 15. Wow, are we soft in the middle.

  179. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Starting guard Josh Jelesky is down, and the clock is stopped with 3 seconds left at the Auburn 13.

  180. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Watch the fake. Spear in to try, and this field goal attempt is up, and good. Tie game. It’s halftime, and the game is tied up, 10-10.

  181. mgizmo2005 says:

    any way to get the comments to auto refresh?

  182. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……I thought the comments were auto-refreshing?

  183. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Community Coffee Scoreboard… LSU has stormed back on Texas A&M and leads 14-12 at the half.

    …..

  184. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will get the ball first in the second half, and needs a drive.

  185. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s the boot by Spear, and it’s to the goal line. McCalebb only gets to the 19.

  186. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers in the one back set? Give Mason, and he cuts back, and will get ten yards!

  187. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10. Tigers with the I. Give McCalebb wide side, and he’s up to the 39!

  188. challenger10 says:

    OMG a run to the wide side?

  189. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 1 Tigers. I set again, slot left. Prosch, and he’s bulling up to the 44!

  190. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10, Wallace in. Pistol set, give McCalebb, and he’s running wide again, to the Vandy 46!

  191. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Wildcat, Wallace keeps, lost the ball! Prosch falls on it, big loss.

  192. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 20. Loffler’d. Shotgun, fires to Blake on the curl, got six.

  193. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 14. Take a shot, please? 3 man rush, and Miller is whipped, sacked quickly.

  194. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clark will punt it dead at the Vandy 14. Disappointing drive. Failed on a QB counter into the boundary, and a fumble. Power-running our freshman QB to the short side. Then a sack on a 5 step drop and a three man rush. Loffler’d.

  195. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vanderbilt will come out with a screen to Matthews, uncovered, gets 16.

  196. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Pitch to Stacey, and he’s out to the 40, for nine yards.

  197. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 1. Give to Stacey, and he’s to the 42, and a first down.

  198. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Commodores in the gun, two backs. Give to Tate, and he’s to near midfield.

  199. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 4. One back, Stacey just blows through a huge hole, has it to the Auburn 31.

  200. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Wildcat, Stacey keeps, gonna go. Out at the two.

  201. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..First and goal. Dive, and Stacey walks in unopposed. Touchdown.

  202. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn is just getting mauled up front. The PAT is up and good by Spear, and with 7:34 left in the 3rd quarter, Vanderbilt goes up 17-10.

  203. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Spear to kick it off. Will boot it to the end zone, and Omac brings it out, knocked out of his shoes at the 15.

  204. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers in the offset I, and Mason gets nothing, as the middle of the line got no push up the gut.

  205. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Fake, and Mosley throws it over Uzomah, and nearly intercepted.

  206. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 10. Shotgun. Mosley will call time, as Mosley can’t get the play set.

  207. AETiger AETiger says:

    Gosh, we look absolutely dreadful.

    • AETiger AETiger says:

      It is almost unbelievable we won the NC less than two yrs ago. Glendale seems decades ago with this team.

  208. tigertracker says:

    draw play here ;) ?

  209. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I think the trainers handed out sleeping pills at halftime.

    • dc83au says:

      Hey Acid

      Any idea where I can watch THIS wees game, I’m apparently watching
      a replay of last week.

  210. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……I’m thinking we’ll Loeffler up a screen to the short side.

  211. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Watch # 51. 3rd and 10 Tigers. Screen Bray, gets about 7, but not enough.

  212. tigertracker says:

    and we’re all wrong with the exception that regardless of the play we all knew it would not pass the sticks

  213. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In comes Clark. This punt is short, Krause is hit, and we AGAIN hit the receiver before the ball gets there.

  214. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Rogers drops, throws it away after a scramble.

  215. tigertracker says:

    did he call fair catch? If not that was a well timed strip IMO.

  216. AETiger AETiger says:

    Good god, now special teams are Loefflering it up.

  217. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 10 at the Auburn 45. Fake, keeper, and POPPED by Chris Davis.

  218. tigertracker says:

    now that was a form tackle!

  219. tigertracker says:

    come on DDDDDDDD

  220. tigertracker says:

    Rodgers gets DRILLED

  221. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 10, Tigers need a stop. 3 to the right. Auburn showing blitz, Rogers throws it away.

  222. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s a pooch attempt by Kent, and it hits at the three, into the end zone, touchback.

  223. AETiger AETiger says:

    Finally, a Vandy three & out. Good job “D”.

  224. tigertracker says:

    OK still a one TD game. 3 yds and a cloud of mason PLEASE!

  225. tigertracker says:

    sidenote. LSU just got an INT and is not driving at midfield.

  226. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Pistol? Screen to Blake, he’s stumblin’ forward for six.

  227. tigertracker says:

    mancrush with 34 on the carry!

  228. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 4. Tigers offset I. Mason jukes, and he’s racing up the gut, and will be run out at the Vandy 40!

  229. tigertracker says:

    come on uzomah!@

  230. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Shifting around, and Uzomah moves. False start. Loeffler’d.

  231. AETiger AETiger says:

    come on we don’t need 1st & 15.

  232. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 15. Pistol set. Mosley dumps to McCalebb, and jukes, no gain. Too much dancin’.

  233. tigertracker says:

    son of !#@$@%^&%

  234. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 15. Shotgun, and this is Miller, jumping off.

  235. AETiger AETiger says:

    Sh*t!!!!!!!! damn it!!!!

  236. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 20. Retreating rapidly, are the Tigers. Screen to Bray, no blockers, and dumped for nothing.

  237. tigertracker says:

    WTF are we doing. we gashed the hell out of them with mason then come back to this crap AGAIN. Just line up and run the F’n ball loeffler!

  238. challenger10 says:

    everyone but us can defend the bubble screen

  239. tigertracker says:

    assume fetal position

  240. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 20. And blitz, and sacked, no chance. Loeffler’d.

  241. AETiger AETiger says:

    Good grief. We should have just quick punted on first down.

  242. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clark, gets a good roll, downed at the Vanderbilt 20.

  243. Joeyfootball says:

    Great block by fullback but wrong man

  244. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s Vandy, with the toss to Stacey, gets two. McKinzy.

  245. tigertracker says:

    Mason needs to be grabbing some facemasks in the huddle and saying “call an audible and give me the d@mn ball!”

  246. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. The 3rd quarter ends, with Vanderbilt leading 17-10.

  247. AETiger AETiger says:

    On to the 4th; hold those fingers high boys. Not sure why though, being out-scored 3-62 this yr in the 4th. Is this going to be rock-bottom? I know I am not looking forward to the Aggies rolling into JH next wk, with their high octane “O”. Pat Dye, shut the “f” up.

  248. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    Definition of Loeffler’d-Run Mason, gain 24 yds, don’t do it again

  249. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8 Vanderbilt. Speed sweep, and McKinzy will choke this down for nothing!

  250. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 7. Shotgun. Dumps over the middle, no good!

  251. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Nice fake blitz.

  252. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Punt to Bray, and he’s through a little seam, up to the 49!

  253. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers out in the I. Mason, will tumble forward to the 50. Short side run again.

  254. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I set. Two tights. Fake, and will hit Prosch on the dump off, and he’s down to the 44.

  255. tigertracker says:

    blake wide open if he’d thrown to the pylon

  256. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 3. Wallace in, wildcat. He’ll fake, and he’s over the left, and he’s got the first down, ball out, already down say the refs.

  257. tigertracker says:

    wallace has got to work on ball security

  258. tigertracker says:

    we’ll take that 15 and lord knows we need it!

  259. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Wallace fakes, rolls, and he’s hit going out of bounds, and a flag.

  260. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tack on 15 more.

  261. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I set at the 24. Here’s a give to McCalebb to the short side, powers for four.

  262. tigertracker says:

    2nd and manageable. will loef blow us up?

  263. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. Two tights. Loaded left, Mason, to the wrong side, lost a yard. Loaded left, ran right, to the short side. Vandy was waiting with the corner.

  264. AETiger AETiger says:

    Goodness gracious. Can we please get some consistent blocking?

  265. tigertracker says:

    3rd and long and we don’t throw past the sticks. /shocking

  266. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 8. Here’s Moseley dumping well short, and too short for Reed. Poor throw, poorer choice.

  267. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    Will someone please point to the wide side of the field for Loeffler

  268. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Cody Parkey, will nail the FG. Mr. Automatic. Auburn has cut the Vandy lead to 17-13, with 9:55 left in the ball game.

  269. AETiger AETiger says:

    100% increase in 4th Q scoring!!!

  270. tigertracker says:

    mancrush now with 14 carries for 82 yards and a very healthy 5.9 average…

  271. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That run for a loss was baffling, and we’ve done it repeatedly. Lined up two tight ends on the left, and run back to the right with no lead blocker. Right into a corner blitz, that time. Vandy was so confident we were running that way that they left a safety single covering Blake. Ouch.

    • Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

      Does he really think he’s fooling people with his playcalling? They’d be more fooled if he actually ran it where the book says to…..

  272. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Parkey to kick off once again. I think we need a turnover to win, here. This is where the defense has absolutely evaporated, in previous weeks.

  273. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The boot is lined deep in the endzone, touchback.

  274. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vanderbilt will go with the gun, rolling right, time, and a dropped ball. Woooooo!

  275. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Trips right, rolling, and Boyd has this pass, will take it up to the Auburn 38. No one covered him.

  276. AETiger AETiger says:

    How can we repeatedly give up big plays in the 4th?

  277. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Evaporation. Defense drying up. 1st and 10 Commodores. Give to Stacey, gets 3, Davis on the stop.

  278. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7. Two backs. Give, flea flicker back, and Grady is bumped out for a loss by Mincy!

  279. AETiger AETiger says:

    Why Vandy? Just do your base offense & you win..

  280. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Key 3rd and 8. 4 wides. Will take, and he dumps to Boyd on the cross, and Bates gets him down for only 5. 4th down.

  281. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……4th and 3, Vandy going. And they call time as Auburn shows man-blitz.

  282. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Checking the coffee scoreboard, and LSU has put the clamps on the A&M offense. They still lead, 14-12 early in the 4th.

  283. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vandy still going for it. 4th and 3. Expect a shallow crossing pattern. Auburn should show blitz and play zone. Gotta hold the middle, though.

  284. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vandy going jumbo. Pitch, and halfback pass? Sacked! Gabe Wright! Auburn holds!

  285. AETiger AETiger says:

    If we lose, which is entirely possible, we are truly inept.

  286. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st down Tigers. Mason to the right, for about 2. Miller missed his block.

  287. tigertracker says:

    our future at LB is looking pretty bright today.

  288. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. One back set. Wide, gets the corner, for about 6. Offsides?

  289. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Offside. Auburn takes it.

  290. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ,,,,,2nd and 3. I set. Mason for nothing, off the short side. Corner blitz again, but we run right into it.

  291. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……3rda dn 2, wildcat. Mccalebb on the sweep, giving up tons of ground, a big loss.

  292. tigertracker says:

    argh. the shortest path to 3 yards is straight ahead guys. wallace could run over someone if he had to.

  293. AETiger AETiger says:

    Who in the world didn’t know that Omac was going to get the ball on the jet-sweep? Loeffler’d again. Wallace in on the most critical down of the game. Nice, not.

  294. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Loeffler’d. 2nd and 3, and we could have run the hunt play to Prosch easily. Instead, we’re running laterally on 3rd down, losing big yardage. Stupid, stupid play calling.

    …..On the short side run, even Emory Blake was waving to Mosley to chance the play, the corner was blitzing. Before the snap. But we can’t change. Same old dumb, paralyzed play call.

  295. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    I’m seriously dumbfounded by the play-calling. I am no longer going to speak about it.

  296. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clark to punt, and Auburn’s running out of time again. Will Vandy drive down and clinch it, or will they turn it over?

  297. AETiger AETiger says:

    When you go one deminsional (i.e. no passing threat), the options become pretty limited.

  298. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    I will speak of it, Loeffler is clueless

  299. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here go the Commodores with 4:41 left in the game.Wildcat, and Stacey just chews for 27.

  300. challenger10 says:

    does anyonethink we will get the ball back?

  301. Joeyfootball says:

    Lights out

  302. tigertracker says:

    this is bad. we have 2 backs averaging right at 5 yds a carry. our QBs combined are 12/15 on the day. we have no turnovers and have gotten two. we have less penalties than vandy. our D has looked pretty good today. and we are losing…
    3rd down conversions 1/10. I think that tells the tale.

  303. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    What are the odds that Chizik is back next week?

  304. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of downs, and they’ll run that clock. Stacey on the give, slashes for five.

  305. AETiger AETiger says:

    Not until VU scores.

  306. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    Stacey gets 27, run him again…Loeffler…Mason gets 24, take him out

  307. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. One back set. Now bunch, stacey up the gut, just runs over tired defenders for a first down.

  308. AETiger AETiger says:

    Like I asked earlier, is this it? Is this rock-bottom? Or can Chiz & Loeffler take us lower?

    • tigertracker says:

      that depends on whether they are given the opportunity to do it again…can we reach new lows. yes, we are so no reason to think we can’t go lower. I want to give chiz another year, but loef needs to go now.

  309. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..From the AUburn 44, Stacey will pick up three, Auburn calls time with 2:38 left in the game.

  310. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..One more first down will do it, as Auburn is down to one timeout. We need a fumble. that’s the only way Auburn has a chance, here.

  311. Joeyfootball says:

    Soft in 4th quarter….again!

  312. AETiger AETiger says:

    As a season ticket holder & TU member; what should/can I do to show my displeasure with this fiasco other than not buying my tickets for next yr?

  313. mikeautiger says:

    My grand mother is sitting here calling the plays on both sides of the ball, why can we not see it?

  314. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Auburn 40. Vandy doing nothing fancy. Stacey, will only get a yard, Bates put him down, last timeout called with 2:33 left.

  315. Joeyfootball says:

    Time out is our best play!

  316. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Shotgun, keeper, and he’s fumbling it, Auburn HAS it! WOW!

  317. tigertracker says:

    ball out! we have a chance for loef to tear our hearts out again.

  318. AETiger AETiger says:

    We have a shot, but I have no confidence in our “O”. Prove me wrong, please.

  319. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Reviewing… I didn’t see a knee down, should stand.

  320. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Can the defense just stay on the field and run this ball into the endzone?

  321. tigertracker says:

    AU ball. what can we do? no timeouts and alot of green. down 4 so parkey no help.

  322. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    For some reason this thing isn’t refreshing….

  323. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    Stands! Auburn’s ball, with 2:24 left in the game, no timeouts.

  324. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dumped to Mason, pulled down short.

  325. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    gracious folks! Get the PLAY OFF!

  326. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Fires left, Uzomah, and he’s out, but didn’t get the first down.

  327. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Shotgun, hit’s Uzomah and he’s down to the Vandy 41!

  328. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    3rd and 1 and we p*ss…it worked, but normally it would not have. C’mon Loeffler, for the love of puppies don’t kill this drive!!!

  329. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    “hit’s” ouch. Vandy has an injured player, which helps Auburn set up. 1:44 remaining in the game.

  330. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Do we know why we are having such a hell of a time getting plays ready on offense….besides just Loeffler??? I hope poor Stan doesn’t have an aneurysm….

  331. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Tigers wasting time. SLot left. Rolls right, and out of bounds.

  332. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Can we get Moseley an ear piece so that he can listen to Stan?

  333. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 at the Vandy 41. Mosley takes, and he’s sacked. Miller’s guy, again. Clock runs.

  334. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    3rd and long. Stallworth drops a crossing route.

  335. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Unbelievable! The defense has kept us in this game and Loeffler has killed us.

  336. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……4th and 13. Clock is running out.Lob it, and missed wide open Coates. Threw the damned ball out of bounds.

  337. Joeyfootball says:

    When is the Masters

  338. tigertracker says:

    stick a fork in it

  339. challenger10 says:

    we cannot eben line up

  340. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And we lined up wrong, and get an ineligible downfield call. Ball game. Vandy can run it out here.

  341. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Inexcusable.

  342. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Vandy will take a knee again, and this one’s over. Vanderbilt wins it, 17-13.

  343. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Uggghhh…..I no longer care if Loeffler goes the road of Franklin. Seriously.

  344. AETiger AETiger says:

    I could say so much. But I really don’t care anymore. Bring on the Aggies. Can’t wait to see Johnny light us up next wk. The tailgating better be good.

  345. Joeyfootball says:

    Well, I can take my bowl money to the casino

  346. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tough day once again for the Tigers. The dreadful offense managed only 212 yards, sez ESPN’s unofficial box score.

  347. mikeautiger says:

    Can we say 1-11

  348. AETiger AETiger says:

    We are now the only team in the conference to have a losing record with Vandy. Perfect accomplishment for this coach.

  349. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    I want to listen to more of Chizik’s coach-speak after this game. Why can’t the reporters ask about the amazingly questionable offensive playcalling? Was this any of the coaches last game?

  350. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Back to work…..chin up you guys. We are one game closer to never having to look at Loeffler ball again…and there were many bright spots in the defense.

    Looking forward to reading your report, Acid….

    How is Patrick Miller even playing still? What does that tell you about his backup’s quality? He must be an LSU plant.

  353. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……That was as embarrassing an offensive performance as we’ve seen all year. We can’t block on the right side, so we’re having to waste an all-american fullback to try and shore it up. We left two touchdown passes on the field due to noodle armed throws. To me, it’s absolutely inexcusable to throw the ball out of bounds on 4th down. Inexcusable.

    …..Seven games in, we actually seem to be slowing the play calling process down. We can’t get lined up right before the play clock runs out. Scot Loeffler’s confused jumble of junk is an anchor that’s dragging the ship down. Honestly, we might lose to Alabama A&M with this sort of abomination of a plan.

  354. AETiger AETiger says:

    Good job Acid. Thanks for handing in there on another crappy day. See you on the Plains next Sat.

  355. mikeautiger says:

    In the third and forth qtr, had a chance to run the offense and win the game but we run the same play to the right over and over again. How about some misdirection, change it up do something different. My little old little old gramma was sitting here calling what we were going to run………offensive play calling is killing us.

    ……Can’t even drown my sorrows on this one, with a social engagement in a couple of hours. Grades will be up noonish tomorrow. Can’t believe how poorly this offense has turned out, with no attempts whatsoever being made to improve things.

    ……Scot Loefller is committed to failure.

  359. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And clearly, Chizik is also. It’s time to let Luper call plays.

  360. MyAuburn myauburn says:

    It is possible for Chizik to save his job if he demotes Loeffler from play calling and let anyone else give it a go. IMO

    I’m with ya Acid. I’m happy that I’m nourishing a little baby…or this would be an ugly season for my liver….it wouldn’t help anyway.

    Good luck with the rest of the day everyone!

  363. BigDaddyAU says:

    Honest opinion here….Chizik would be served to go ahead and demote CSL to QB coach and just call the plays himself. Leoffler has no business calling plays for Auburn. He clearly is not qualified. I honestly believe after watching this team week in and week out that we would have won 2 maybe 3 more games with an OC that knew what to call. For crying out loud on 3rd and 3 you have TWO downs to get the 1st..run the damn ball up the middle. If they can stop you twice then we don’t deserve to win. But to give up the play when my 4 year old knew who was gonna get it…really. This team is not as bad as they look. But our OC is unqualified to be an OC in this league.

    I WAS encouraged in some aspects of our defense. If Van Gorder doesn’t let Cassanova play every snap then his ‘stache ass should be let go. Jake Holland came in the game and our defense looked lost. McKinzey came back in and they looked like a decent defense….easy to see..should be easy to see on tape…thanks for your effort Holland…but sorry.

    We need a QB un the worst way…oh wait..Wallace can play..but they won’t let him tun the show…maybe now that we have no chance of going to a bowl they will sit Mosley…sit Frazier…sit Holland…sit any and all upper classmen that are holding us back and let the young kids play. Get them experience.

    • mgizmo2005 says:

      I agree with this sentiment.

      I’m not sure how people come to some of their conclusions about Chizik from what we see. I have seen people who are clearly pro Auburn, on this very site, positive that they know he has lost the team, etc and then others who are equally as sure that it isn’t his fault. Face it folks, we are not in the know on this. What I do know is from recent past experience that coaches who lose get run off at Auburn. They usually “resign.” Someone will be losing their job this year. I hope whatever is decided is well thought out and in the best interest of Auburn.

  364. Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

    Avery Young and Lutz are out for the season per Chizik,

    • BigDaddyAU says:

      What is the injury to Lutz? I hate it for the young man…but as our current OC doesn’t use the TE in his worthless scheme it won’t make a ton of difference. Lutz is one of my favorite players and he is a stand up person. Sorry that his career on the Plains had to end via injury and under an OC that is worthless at calling plays.

  365. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The wildcat needs to go, or we need to throw out of it more. Wallace looked good on the screen pass, and it worked well. The wildcat is NOT a good short yardage option, unless you have a power back to take that inside handoff.

    …..I don’t think we can play McKinzy every play, due to freshman fatigue. It’s just too much to ask an 18 year old to play 70 or 80 SEC snaps at middle linebacker.

    • BigDaddyAU says:

      I agree Acid…wildcat does NOT work without the threat of a pass…Wallace’s one throw was not from a Wildcat formation….

      As for McKinzey and fatigue….I agree..but him playing fatigued might be better than his backup playing fresh. It was blatantly obvious that our Defense suffered when he wasn’t on the field. I’m convinced that CGC is doing what old Coach Tuberville used to to and that was to delegate to his assistants and not be hands on. I think on Defense he can do this as I honestly think CBVG is a good coach and simply doesn’t have the linebackers or DT’s to run his defense…yet.

      Offensively it is also obvious that CSL is not getting it done and likely will never get it. Again on offense I don’t think it’s personnel I think it is 100% play calling. Perhaps the only position on the field where we don’t have enough talent is at QB. All the other positions have good talent, albeit young.

    • AETiger AETiger says:

      I’ve said that forever. I even said it last week on the game thread. The Wildcat worked at first because no one had ever seen it. Just lining up and running is moronic. Kill the Wildcat and fire Loeffler.

  366. Trey C Rock Her says:

    I know that some of you will disagree, but here goes. I am ashamed of how we are treating our family. God put CGC and his family in the path of our family and now we are all one family. Ive gone through very hard times with my family, but at no point did I EVER think about getting rid of any of them. CGC gave us a National Championship. It was his skill as a head coach that coached up the players. My question to all of you is this: have you never made a mistake? Have you gone through times in your professional life where you didnt perform as well as you wanted? I believe that CSL may be a bit over his head. If any changes should be made I believe that we need to promote coach Trooper Taylor. He is the Assistant head coach of this football team and I believe that not promoting him is racism and I dont want our family to be called racist. ALL IN still in Heflin ALABAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Christ #1, AU #2!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bren Dekura Bren Dekura says:

      When you’re paying someone millions to win in a million dollar industry, you don’t have the luxury of treating them like family. I agree that Loeffler is over his head. But, it is Chizik’s responsibility ultimately.

      If Chizik was worth his salt, he’d have recognized issues and tweaked the practices and game plans accordingly. He would have mentored the new OC. Now it’s become apparent that he’s a team manager, CEO-style coach. Unfortunately, when aspects of the team aren’t coached/managed well by their coordinators, a coach of that style goes down in flames. Witness Tuberville.

    • mikeautiger says:

      I liken what you have said. We have gotten spoiled by winning. We should not be treating the team and coaches this way. There are a lot of little things that ate making it hard to win. All you can do is fight through it and we will have a great year next year. We will be older, bigger, more experienced next year and better due to the struggles of this year. We will start the year with clear Minds and optimism after starting this year under a cloud of deaths and distractions. Time will heal many things. We will play for SEC Championship next year.

    • justin says:

      You a a complete moron. Please never post anything again. Have you looked at our team and staff. Racist. Give me a break. Wait is this trooper Taylor that posted that. My bad. Genes record speaks for itself. He won a championship with Cam not coaching. My mom could coach Cam to a championship. And leave Christ out if it. He’s not taking snaps.

      • Trey C Rock Her says:

        Justin

        I forgive you for that. I know that you are just hurting tonight after the loss. Again, family doesnt turn on one another like I feel like you just did. I forgive you just like I forgive CGC. What I said about coach Trooper Taylor was that if our ADMINISTRATION did not give him a chance to advance I feel like that would be racist and family should not be racist. Also, Coach Trooper Taylor is the Assistant Head Coach, so obviously we trust him already. Also, Jesus helped us when we needed him in 2010 and I feel like we have forgotten that.

    If CGC is all in, do the program a favor and step aside. He should be ashamed to allow Auburn to continue to get worse week end and week out. I am sure he is a good guy and has a wonderful family however he is not living up to his end of deal. The deal is that the school pays him millions and in return he makes every effort to improve the performance of the team and build it for the upcoming years. I am embarrassed for him, I would hate to know that I was building the reputation that CGC is in my chosen profession.
