Extinguish the Flames! (Auburn vs. Liberty Open Thread)

By on November 17th, 2018 in Football 1 Comment »

First ever meeting with the Liberty Flames
(Jerome Miron—USA TODAY Sports)

     War Eagle, everybody! Today marks the 2018 home finale for the Auburn Tigers. Making a trek down I-85 to play the Tigers this afternoon are the Liberty Flames. For Auburn, this is hopefully a rest on the schedule, and the team can treat this like a glorified practice. For the Flames, this is a big payday and a chance to show off on national TV.

     This game is scheduled to kick off at 3:00 PM, Central Time. It will be televised by the SEC Network, possibly on the SEC Alternate channel. Failing that, it will be on ESPN+ for those with a decent streaming option.

     The weather should be great. It is expected to be sunny with a high in the mid-60’s F around kickoff. Temps will fall into the 50’s after sunset. There should be a waxing gibbous moon high above Jordan-Hare Stadium for this one. We will have our usual Trackemtigers.com Open Thread up and running for this one, and I’ll do my usual play by play.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard, armed with a warm mug of coffee, and hopefully a delectable sandwich! War Eagle! And, beat the Flames!

…..Liberty’s plan was quick slant patterns. Then Auburn dropped Darrell Williams into the lanes, and he got a quick pick-six.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20187:21 pm

The defense could not have performed better. Seemed like Liberty had a good game plan for the first drive, but that was all they had.

…..3rd and 5. Draw to Martin, only a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:56 pm

auburnelvis November 17, 20186:39 pm

Alabama -20? 50 total?

auburnelvis November 17, 20186:38 pm

What is the line going to be next week?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:34 pm

…..We have a delay for an injury. Downs, for Liberty. And the cart is coming out.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20186:30 pm

According to ESPN Liberty has 81 total yards…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:28 pm

…..The Auburn D completes another 3 and out, on a deflection by McClain!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:25 pm

….Pass incomplete, upon review.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:23 pm

…..Ball hit the ground, I think.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:23 pm

….Reviewing, stands!

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20186:20 pm

so liberty is 6-23 passing, with 5 first downs total. and i think 3 of those 5 first downs came on the first drive of the ball game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:19 pm

….Smoke Monday with a low interception, at the 45 of Liberty!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:16 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:14 pm

…..Auburn has it back again, and is driving with Schwartz and Shivers getting carries.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20186:12 pm

Why Ian Shannon when Carlson is finally finding a groove?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:07 pm

…..From 36, actually. Ian Shannon misses, and the score remains 39-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:07 pm

….4th and 3, and Auburn will send in the field goal team from 26.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20186:06 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:58 pm

Pearls Pine Tigers have given me more satisfaction in the two game I’ve watched than the whole football season. Maui Invitational….is my Super Bowl!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:42 pm

Checking the SEC Scoreboard… Missouri leads Tennessee, 26-17, in the 3rd. Georgia is up 42-13 over UMass at the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:41 pm

…..Offense is definitely not fixed. Fortunately, Liberty apparently can’t cover the post/corner combo.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20185:37 pm

According to 247 sports, 11th in the country and i think 5th in the SEC.

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:35 pm

What’s the recruiting looking like?

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20185:33 pm

Liberty is averaging giving up around 500 YPG. We should be doing whatever we want to. Still very shaky even though the scoreboard doesn’t reflect it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:31 pm

…..Liberty runs clock, and Auburn saves the timeout. It’s halftime, with Auburn leading Liberty, 32-0.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20185:28 pm

284 yards of offense in the half, but doesn’t feel like a dominant offense. I guess because that is only the second offensive TD to show for all those yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:26 pm

….Carlson is up and good, and with 1:03 left in the half, Auburn leads Liberty, 32-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:25 pm

…..TOUCHDOOOOWN, AUBURN!

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:25 pm

….Stidham will throw to Cannella in the end zone, GOT IT!

…..New set of downs for the Tigers, at the 22.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:25 pm

….1:19 left, reverse to Schwartz, down to the 25.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20185:24 pm

Let’s jam in a free TD just before half!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:24 pm

….Lost the ball, and Auburn recovers!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:24 pm

…..2nd and 10. 1:25 left in the half. Calvert to throw, buried! Big KAT!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:23 pm

…..Calvert will step up, goes down the boundary, Coleman can’t get it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:23 pm

…..3rd and 8. Calvert to throw, fires up to the stake, Barrett is up to the 40, first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:22 pm

…..Clock inside 2 minutes.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:22 pm

…..Clock running. Calvert will give to Hickson, for just 2.

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:21 pm

First half of year to second looks like night and day on sp.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:21 pm

…..Give Hickson, no gain.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:21 pm

…..Auburn has smothered those returnable balls much of this season. A fair catch was the smart play,

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:21 pm

…..Espinosa deep. Carlson boots it to the 4, fair caught. ’bout time someone figured that out.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20185:20 pm

One thing that we can say this year, is that the special teams compared to last year is like night and day. Whatever coaching changes was made in the offseason, worked. Larry Porter in charge of special teams seems to have done the trick.

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:20 pm

Even when the blocking looks good/ offense looks soft.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20185:19 pm

Raining 3 balls like we’re in Auburn Arena.

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:18 pm

Fg kicking looks improved! Need that moving forward

…..4th and long. Carlson will attempt a field goal from 49.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:16 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:16 pm

…..Brings up 3rd and 4. Whistles, and a false start, Horton.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:15 pm

…..2nd and 6. Whitlow, bulling to the 19.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:15 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Stidham will fire to Schwartz at the 21, and down.

….Wildcat, Whitlow, and will fight down to the 25!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:14 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:14 pm

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:13 pm

That’s on qb

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:13 pm

…..2nd and 3. Stidham pressured, and has to throw it away.

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:13 pm

Sammie hit the deep all the time! No one this year has caught the deep bomb with any consistency!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:13 pm

….Martin has 108 rushing yards on the day.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20185:11 pm

Slayton this year is looking more and more like Sammie Coates.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:11 pm

…..3rd and 2 Tigers. Give Kam Martin, will get it up to the 40.

auburnelvis November 17, 20185:11 pm

That’s on qb

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:11 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20185:10 pm

Gimped?

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20185:02 pm

Huh. The guys of 247 are the ones who seem convinced that Stidham will enter the draft. They had a pretty good podcast this week. Something about how the 2020 QB draft will be loaded, so Stidham has to leave because of lesser competition.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:23 pm

AL.com posted an article this week saying he has no choice but to stay and try to build his resume back up.

So far, Acid’s kicking grade for Carlson is an A+ for tomorrow’s write-up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:20 pm

….Empty set. Slant, BANG, Farrow is popped, and incomplete!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:19 pm

…..Carlson will kickoff, and through, and out of the end zone.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20184:19 pm

Seems that the consensus is building that Stidham has no choice but to enter the NFL draft this year. Maybe he will, but I just don’t see it. He doesn’t look like NFL material this year. His draft stock likely dropped dramatically this year. I’m kind of hoping that he does leave, unfortunately.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20184:18 pm

Acid tells me what’s going to happen, then I hear Rod and Stan describe it, then I watch it. Haha

ESPN app and iHeart radio app are both delayed.

…..Checking the SEC scoreboard…Mizzou is up over Tennessee 6-0, end of the first quarter. Georgia leads UMass early, 7-0.

meathead530 November 17, 20184:17 pm

I forgot that when I watch on the ESPN app, I’m way behind.

dyingculture dyingculture November 17, 20184:17 pm

finally!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:16 pm

…..Carlson nails it! With 7:40 left in the first quarter, Auburn leads, 3-0!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:16 pm

….Anders Carlson comes in, to try from 53 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:16 pm

…..3rd and 7. And Stidham throws another away, trying a screen on long yardage.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:15 pm

….2nd and 7 from the 35. Stidham has time, and throws it away.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:14 pm

….Screen Cox, got 2, to the 36 of Liberty.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:14 pm

….Stidham throws the deep corner, Williams has it!

SBNation makes a very strong case that Turner Gill would have failed and that Chizik was a better hire.

….Give Kam Martin, busts through for 12!

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20184:13 pm

Yes, Chuck was very much a Gill fan. Hated how much he turned it into a race issue. Whether that had anything to do with the hire or not, it made AU look bad because Barkley wouldnt shut up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:12 pm

…..Ohio State survives in OT, beating Maryland 52-51.

auburnelvis November 17, 20184:12 pm

Agree

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:11 pm

…..Barkley was incensed, 10 years ago, at the Chizik hire. Thought Gill was a better choice.

auburnelvis November 17, 20184:10 pm

I think Charles Barkley wanted Gill on the planes?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:10 pm

…..On 4th down, they will go. Calvert fires to Pickett, short by a yard!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:10 pm

….Here’s Calvert, will float one up, and way out of bounds. Auburn gets the stop!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:09 pm

….Give Pickett, to the Auburn 36.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:08 pm

…..2nd and 8, Calvert fires to Farrow, got another first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:07 pm

…..Pickett on the give from the Liberty 47, nothing doing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:07 pm

…..Calvert fires to Stubbs, on the slant, got another first down.

Turner Gill….wasn’t he a coaching possibility in 2008 when we got Chiz?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:06 pm

…..2nd and 10. Give again, Hickson gets 5.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:05 pm

….1st and 10 Flames. Here’s Hickson, got nothing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:05 pm

…..3rd and 4, possession play for Liberty. Checking off. Calvert will step up, fires to the stake, and Golden has it in traffic, first down at the 36.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:04 pm

….Give Hickson, got a couple.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:04 pm

…..Rolling out, Calvert will fire a short one, to the flat, only 4 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:03 pm

…..Backs it up to the 20? No, Liberty apparently got a timeout called.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:02 pm

….Liberty gets a delay of game, on the first play.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20184:01 pm

…..It’s on! Carlson boots yet another touchback.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20183:53 pm

That means Saban will be on the warpath all week in practice and UA will come out in the IB with their hair on fire.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20183:53 pm

…..Auburn Tiger notes… Big Kat Bryant will start in place on Nick Coe at buck-end. Coe is suffering from an injured wrist, and is questionable for the Iron Bowl. Coe will miss this game, today.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20183:52 pm

The Citadel moving the ball wasn’t surprising. Triple op is hard to handle for anyone. What was surprising is they were stopping UA on defense. Stopping their run and getting pressure on Tua pretty consistently.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20183:52 pm

…..The Buckeye/Terrapin game has gone to overtime, tied at 45.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20183:44 pm

…..I saw snippets of that game. The Citadel basically played Alabama toe-to-toe for a half.

AUNation AUNation November 17, 20183:33 pm

Who thinks AU doesn’t match Citadels offensive numbers against UA next week?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20183:24 pm

…..Early SEC cupcake games are already in the books.
Florida 63, Idaho 10
MSU 56, Arkansas 6
Alabama 50, The Citadel 17
Kentucky 34, Middle Tennessee 23

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 20183:20 pm

…..Nationally, an upset alert in the B1G! Maryland leads Ohio State, 38-31, with about 5 minutes to go in that one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 17, 201812:18 pm

…..And we are live! Cupcake week is getting off to a bang! Maryland leads Ohio State 7-0, early!
