Hammer the Huskies! (Auburn vs. Washington Open Thread)

By on September 1st, 2018 in Football 2 Comments »

This will be the 3rd game in a row for Auburn at this venue.

     War Eagle, everybody, and happy first day of September! College football is back, today in full swing. This afternoon, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Washington Huskies in Atlanta. This one is an early top-ten showdown. The winner has a chance to propel itself towards a playoff appearance while the loser will have little margin for error.

     This game will kick off around 3:30 PM, Eastern Time, and 2:30 Central Time. It’s an early kick for Husky fans on the West Coast. The game will be televised nationally on ABC television. Weather should not be an issue in the closed, air-conditioned Mercedes Benz Stadium, although the walk to the stadium from the parking area will be hot and humid, around 90 degrees near kickoff. There is a chance of a stray thunderstorm but only a small chance.

     I feel like this game will have national appeal as folks tune in to see if the SEC will continue its winning ways against the rest of the country. In the past dozen years, the SEC has won 9 of 12 national championships, and the SEC has won over 60 percent of its bowl games. This game is a great chance for both Washington and Auburn to garner national attention.

     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 BBQ potato chips. War Eagle, and let’s see if Auburn begins a memorable season against a tough out-of-conference opponent. War Eagle!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:08 pm

……War Eagle, everybody! It has been a great day. I’ve eaten nothing but junk food most of the day, and watched football from 11 AM till 10 PM! Certainly won’t get to do this every Saturday this fall, but this was glorious!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:06 pm

…..Vanderbilt now leads MTS 35-7 late, and SEC fate is set, till tomorrow night when LSU and Miami meet. 12-1, on opening week.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:05 pm

…..Oh, that game was so bad, AUNation. They had our line calls scouted, and we also had receivers that could not catch! USC’s staff also knew that Chizik was much into the Tampa-2 defense exclusively, and they had a package for Matt Leinart matching Reggie Bush up on suspect Auburn safeties and linebackers.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:03 pm

….Shea Patterson loses the football on a 4 man rush, and Michigan’s chances are over. Notre Dame can run the clock out on a 24-17 win.

AUNation AUNation September 1, 201811:02 pm

I spent a small fortune (at least to a college kid) to watch Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush film a season’s worth of highlights in Jh in ’03. That game was probably a large reason why we got disrespected and left out the next year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:58 pm

…..Vandy has taken a 28-7 lead over Middle Tennessee in the 4th quarter. With that one nearly clinched, it looks like the SEC will finish 12-1, thru today. It’s up to LSU, to get number 13, tomorrow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:54 pm

…..Auburn was running a wishbone triple-option offense, but we had a drop-back quarterback, Pat Washington. The staff did not really know how to blend Pat into the offense. We lost to Miami, 20-18. The following week in Austin, Texas, Bo Jackson separated his shoulder, and we lost to Texas, 34-27. The season seemed lost, but running backs started coming out of the woodwork. Kyle Collins. Colis Campbell. Brent Fullwood. Auburn ended up winning nine games with Bo mostly on the sideline, and a quarterback the staff didn’t know how to use.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:52 pm

…..Kickoff Classic. The only way to get a 12th regular season game, and great exposure, too, on the the weekend before the regular season started. We had our chance to prove we should have been national champs, instead of Miami. On a national stage, nationally televised.

AUNation AUNation September 1, 201810:49 pm

So, in ’84 AU played Miami in NJ? That’s an odd marketing move.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:48 pm

…..Bama game is more or less over, with a 34-7 Bama lead. Flipped over to Michigan/Notre Dame. The Irish lead, 24-10, under five minutes, but Shea Patterson and those wacky yellow and black helmets are driving…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:16 pm

…..Vanderbilt completes their opening second half drive, and now leads Middle Tennessee, 21-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:15 pm

…..SMU is getting waxed by North Texas, 36-0. I think they are really missing head coach Chad Morris, who moved to Arkansas!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:14 pm

…..Big winners today? The Big Ten. Michigan may well go down, but everyone else in that league has or will win, today.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:13 pm

…..North Carolina lost at Cal, 24-17. That’s an embarrassment, for the ACC. Kansas State is losing to South Dakota, 24-19 late.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:10 pm

…..Checking some national scores… Disappointing night for the Michigan Wolverines. They are down at Notre Dame, 24-10.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:07 pm

…..Miami vs LSU tomorrow is going to be tough. The worst the SEC can finish this weekend is 11-3, and that would be if both Vandy and LSU lose. It’s been a pretty good day, for the league.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:06 pm

…..With Bama up 28-0 at halftime in Orlando, the only game really still in doubt is at Vanderbilt. Their offensive woes apparently are continuing. Middle Tennessee is hanging around still, trailing 14-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201810:04 pm

…..Yeah, I saw that. I’ve sat through a lot of those losses! None was as bitter as losing the Kickoff Classic to Miami, in 1984, after we had bitterly complained about them being giftwrapped the 1983 national title by both polls.

AUNation AUNation September 1, 20189:59 pm

“It’s only happened twice in the history of Auburn football.

The first time Auburn defeated a Top 10 opponent to begin a season the Tigers went onto win a national championship. The year was 1957, and it wasn’t pretty then either.” AL.com

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20189:58 pm

…..Alabama Power has blinked out again. I know the Tide fans are ticked!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20189:07 pm

MSU 28, Stephen F. Austin 3
Florida 31, Charleston Southern 0
Vanderbilt 14, Middle Tennessee 7
Alabama 14, Louisville 0

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20189:05 pm

…..Checking the evening Stinger Scoreboard, SEC night games are all going the SEC’s way. Warts and issues are evident in places, but the SEC has most of these games under control already, in the second quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20188:41 pm

…..Color me shocked at how porous Alabama’s offensive line is. They need two quarterbacks, possibly more, if this level of play keeps up!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20188:32 pm

…..And Tua is back in there on the next series. Tough kid.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20188:32 pm

…..I’m hoping Tua isn’t hurt too badly. They called targeting, but that was just a freak play. Tua had an incredible ad-lib on that TD pass.

Jonathon Jonathon September 1, 20188:12 pm

I’ll take it. Not pretty but it’s a hurdle Malzahn needed to get over.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20188:01 pm

….Challenging day, for me, too! The SEC is currently 8-1, this weekend, with Tennessee providing a not-unexpected 40-14 loss to West Virginia. Other games I had questions about, but Auburn and Kentucky won.

meathead530 September 1, 20187:52 pm

Thanks, Acid.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:21 pm

…..I’ll be looking in on some evening games in a bit, and will comment a bit more at that time.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:21 pm

…..War Eagle, everybody! Time to get ready for the next game. Auburn practices again Alabama State next weekend, then gets the big CBS game against LSU. Should be fun!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:18 pm

…..There were some things to build on, this game. No turnovers, and Auburn did have nine tackles for loss in this one. This was a tough offense to defend, and Auburn held them to 15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:14 pm

…..They keep talking about what a great play call the Whitlow TD was, but that wasn’t it. We were down a single point, and the coaches played for the field goal attempt. The Washington front seven got caught staring down the quarterback.

wpleagle wpleagle September 1, 20187:13 pm

And, we kept a Benz jinx from taking root! First win in the new hotlanta stadium!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:13 pm

…..What a strange day!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:12 pm

…..Auburn beats Washington, 21-15 in an ugly one!

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20187:11 pm

A “W” is a “W”.

wpleagle wpleagle September 1, 20187:11 pm

HOW SWEEEET IT IS!!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:11 pm

…..Knee by Stidham, and they don’t start the play clock in time. It’s over, Auburn won’t have to run another play!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:11 pm

…..Auburn can snap it twice now, and this one will be over. Auburn 21, Washington 15!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:10 pm

….Whitlow wildcat, will stutter down to the 35! First down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:09 pm

….Time called, Washington’s last.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:09 pm

…..Here’s the keeper, Stidham is close to the first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:08 pm

…..1:27 left, and it will be 2nd and 8.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:08 pm

…..Give to Martin, will bull to the 45, timeout called.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:07 pm

….Just please, no turnovers! Ball security!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:07 pm

…..Washington has 2 timeouts. Realistically, Auburn needs one first down to run it out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:07 pm

…..Review: passed, not fumbled. Auburn will have it at the Washington 47. They move the clock back to 1:31.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20187:06 pm

Great job by the D.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:05 pm

…..Call, could go either way on fumble/pass, but regardless, it was still 4th down. Auburn gets the ball regardless.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:04 pm

…..1:21 left! That was 4th down, and Auburn will have the ball, regardless!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:03 pm

….A flag, on the sideline?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:03 pm

….4th and long, Browning SACKED, lost the ball! Russell rumbling….

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:03 pm

…..Washington will let it run, and are they going?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:02 pm

….Big Kat Bryant!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:02 pm

…..3rd and 14, two down territory. Clock running. Here’s Browning with an empty set. Scrambling, SAAAAAAACKED!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:02 pm

…..Browning will give to Gaskin, NOTHING, a 4 yard loss!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:01 pm

…..2nd and 10, with 3:02 left.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:01 pm

…..1st and 10. Browning will dump over the middle, misses under pressure.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:00 pm

…..Dinson, a statue.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:00 pm

….Browning in the gun. Flushed, will run, and get the first down to the Auburn 37.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:00 pm

…..3rd and 11, clock under 4 minutes.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20187:00 pm

…..Browning will go under center. Give to Gaskin, will bury Gaskin at the line!

meathead530 September 1, 20187:00 pm

Auburn can win this.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:59 pm

…..2nd and 13. you KNOW they are going to try another fade.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:59 pm

……1st and 15, at the Husky 46. Middle of the field. Give, nothing doing for Gaskin! ONly 2.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:58 pm

…..New set of downs., and a false start!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:58 pm

…..Here’s Browning, to throw, finds a Patchilli wide open to the Auburn 49.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:58 pm

Wide open – oy

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:57 pm

….Too far, on the throw. 3rd and 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:57 pm

…..Audibles, Brown will float it, out of bounds!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:57 pm

….2nd and 3. Expect a shot.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:57 pm

….That’s what a lead blocker will do for you.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:57 pm

Would love to hear from Gus why he felt the need to go for two after the first TD.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:56 pm

…..From the 25. Give to Gaskin, got seven.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:56 pm

Defense has to step up

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:56 pm

…..Here’s the boot, and another touchback from Carlson.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:55 pm

DEFENSE!!!

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:55 pm

We may win. But boy have we made it hard.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:55 pm

That first failed two point conversion attempt is why we up by less that a TD and PAT

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:54 pm

…..They need a touchdown. A field goal doesn’t win it for them, unless they get one quickly and play defense.

Jonathon Jonathon September 1, 20186:54 pm

welp, that helps but we ended it with another wiff.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:54 pm

The failed goofy, failed two point conversion in the 1Q looms LARGE.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:53 pm

…..6:15 left, and Auburn clings to a 21-15 lead.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:53 pm

…..They just bit on that fake. Wildcat, pass batted down on the 2 point try, Cox trying to pass?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:52 pm

…..TOUCHDOWWWWWN, AUBURN!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:52 pm

Yac!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:52 pm

…..3rd and 7. Whitlow up the gut, HE WILL SCOREEEEEE!@

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:51 pm

…..Draw play, nothing for Martin.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:50 pm

…..2nd and 8. Washington calls time, with 7:45 left in the ball game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:49 pm

…..New set of downs in the red zone. Martin will get two.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:49 pm

…..2nd and 5 Auburn. Here’s a draw to Martin, down to the 12.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:48 pm

…..Auburn at the 25. Keeper, and he’s to the 20.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:48 pm

…..At the Washington 46. Stidham has time, deep, caught at the 25, Slayton!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:48 pm

We’ll take it

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:47 pm

….Oh, facemask! New set of Auburn downs.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:47 pm

….Screen to Davis, nowhere to go, and a flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:47 pm

…..Stidham will take, and he’s firing to Cox, will back into a first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:46 pm

…..3rd and 9, possession play! Power comes back on…

AUNation AUNation September 1, 20186:46 pm

That quick slant to NCM has been open repeatedly.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:44 pm

…..A first down is badly needed, here, especially after burning a timeout. With a punt, Auburn likely would not get the ball back till well under 5 minutes.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:43 pm

…..Here’s a timeout by Auburn, with 8:55 left in the ball game, trailing 16-15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:43 pm

….19 total flags, 12 on Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:43 pm

…..2nd and 10. Give Martin, nothing doing.

Jonathon Jonathon September 1, 20186:42 pm

Same old Same ol Malzahn Game 1 letdown.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:42 pm

…..Here’s Stidham rolling, shovels the ball ahead, incomplete.

meathead530 September 1, 20186:42 pm

What’s the current flag count?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:41 pm

…..Tigers are first and ten, a long way from paydirt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:41 pm

…..4th and short, they punt. Liner, Davis will field it, belted at the 24.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:40 pm

…..3rd and long. Browning will take, and hit, Fuller will get it at the 41, short a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:40 pm

…..2nd and 15. Browning will step up, fires short, and Pitreilli is dumped quickly.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:39 pm

The stupid tricky two point try really irks me. Why?????

Jonathon Jonathon September 1, 20186:39 pm

Secondary cost us this game. Not one guy looked back to defend the deep pass.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:39 pm

…..Wait, they called it on Washington? 1st and 25. Browning scrambles, out to the 28.

Jonathon Jonathon September 1, 20186:38 pm

LOL! We gave this joker a raise and extension.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:38 pm

….Dinson flagged.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:38 pm

…..Here come the Huskies, with 12:31 remaining. In no hurry. Browning will throw another fade, and another flag, and caught.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:37 pm

Looking like MBS will be AU’s house of horrors.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:36 pm

…..We are under 13 minutes left in the ball game, trailing 16-15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:35 pm

….Siposs with a 41 yard punt, and Washington will take over at their 32.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:34 pm

…..And the radio misses three plays for a commercial. Grounding, Stidham flushed. 4th and 22.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:33 pm

Where is the first quarter Stidham?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:33 pm

…..Auburn needs to get points, here. If they don’t the clock will start to become an enemy. At least the defense is getting some rest with this drive, thus far.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:32 pm

…..Auburn is behind the sticks, trailing 16-15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:32 pm

…..2nd and 10 Auburn. And a TV timeout, it seems.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:32 pm

This game would be tied if not for some BS two point trickeration.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:31 pm

…..They pick up the flag. No foul. Auburn is behind the sticks.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:30 pm

…..They will have to review this, as they do all targeting calls.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:29 pm

…..Targeting on the defense? Wow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:29 pm

….New set of downs. Davis in motion. Fake, will be tipped up, flag! About time!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:28 pm

…..3rd and 1. Here’s Davis in motion. Fake to Cox, Davis on the screen, and he’s out to the 40!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:27 pm

…..2nd and 4. Martin up the gut, will a yard short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:27 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Screen to Davis, will get to the 31.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:26 pm

…..Auburn will start at the 25.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:26 pm

…..Here’s the kickoff. Fair catch called, Whitlow takes it at the six.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:26 pm

All these FGs …. need TDs

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:25 pm

….14:06 remains in the game.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:25 pm

Tigers finally down. Now what are we doing to do?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:25 pm

…..Washington takes the lead, 16-15.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:25 pm

Donk

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:25 pm

…..In comes Henry for a chip shot. The kick, will hit the post, but goes in.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:24 pm

Thank god!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:24 pm

…..3rd and goal at the 13. Fade coming. Fuller in motion. Browning will fire over the middle, tipped down by Darrell Williams!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:23 pm

…..Sweep give, losing yardage! McKlatcher, will be dumped at the 13!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:22 pm

…..Got my scoreboard working again. Tennessee is down 20-7, to West Virginia.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:20 pm

…..That is the end of the 3rd quarter, with Auburn still miraculously leading, 15-13.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:20 pm

…..Leave it to Alabama Power to crap out on opening football Saturday afternoon.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:20 pm

I keep hoping Auburn will claw its way back into this game – they look uninspired

meathead530 September 1, 20186:20 pm

I miss Auburn’s intensity from the 1st quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:19 pm

…..Browning will go under center, give Akmed, got only a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:19 pm

…..1st and 5 Washington. Give Akmed, will get to the ten, first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:18 pm

…..And ANOTHER offside penalty on Auburn.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:18 pm

A lot of unforced errors

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:17 pm

…..That will move the ball deep into Auburn territory.

Col.Angus Col.Angus September 1, 20186:17 pm

Hard to imagine us winning this game, but we certainly have made enough stupid mistakes to lose

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:16 pm

…..Facemask, on Auburn.

Col.Angus Col.Angus September 1, 20186:16 pm

Never leave your feet guys

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:16 pm

…..Gaskin will try to cut back, and more flags.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:15 pm

…..Here’s Browning. Will run for the first down at the 36.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:14 pm

…..Browning will dump it to Batelli, for about 5.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:14 pm

…..New set of downs for Washington. Give Gaskin, will be coralled, nothing.

Col.Angus Col.Angus September 1, 20186:13 pm

We are playing sloppy

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:13 pm

…..TD Moultry. Third penalty of the day on him.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:13 pm

…..Flag, and Browning will run for a yard. Offsides Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:12 pm

…..Block in the back. Will bring up a first and 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:12 pm

…..Back on. Internet is going in and out. Browning escapes pressure, and finds the tight end for a big gain, and a flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:11 pm

……3rd and 7. Stidham will take, flags, and Auburn jumped? No, offsides!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:06 pm

Is Jack Crowe back?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:06 pm

…..Pistol Set. Give Martin, nothing doing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:05 pm

…..Fake, Stidham will dump to Martin, gets about 3.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20186:05 pm

Bullet, dodged.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:05 pm

….Nick Coe swats the ball out, and Auburn HAS it at the 20.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:02 pm

….Jones wide open, Auburn secondary in disarray.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:02 pm

….Gaskin powers to the 25. Gonna have to switch computers.

meathead530 September 1, 20186:01 pm

Flag city. Mercy.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:01 pm

…..Igbinoghene flagged, bogus, it sounds like.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20186:00 pm

Malzahn needs to ditch the coaches new “uniform.” The khakis look like gold stretch pants and the Florida blue shirts look bad too.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20186:00 pm

…..Oh, crud, the power just went out. I’ve got maybe 15 minutes that this computer will run on battery backup…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:59 pm

…..If we were going to run it at them on 1st down, we need Cox and probably Jalen Harris in there to block! Otherwise we look like Scot Loeffler on the play calls!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:58 pm

Nope

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:58 pm

Carlson, Carlson, Carlson…. 🙁

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20185:57 pm

Don’t need Stidham taking those body shots.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:57 pm

….7:03 remains in the third quarter, and Auburn hangs onto a 15-13 lead. Washington will take over.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:57 pm

…..From 54 yards, Carlson is up, and will miss, wide right.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:56 pm

…..Auburn sends in Carlson, for a LONG field goal attempt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:56 pm

…..3rd and 6, possession play. Shotgun. Stidham looks, looks, runs, and he will get hammered, short of the first.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:55 pm

…..2nd and 10, behind the sticks now. Stidham will give to Whitlow to the short side, not much. No lead blocker.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:55 pm

…..Stidham will fire to Whitlow, too hot to handle.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:54 pm

…..Loses a shoe, Whitlow in.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:54 pm

…..New set of downs. Martin, will get free, to the UW 43!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:54 pm

Excellent!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:54 pm

…..1st and 10. Pumps, will fire to Cox again, will bull out to the 46!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:53 pm

…..2nd and 8. Stidham will throw to Cox, hammered at the 33, close.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:53 pm

First slip

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:53 pm

…..Here’s a trips right. Screen to Kam Martin, slides down. Slippery shoes?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:52 pm

…..Auburn will go from their 23.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:52 pm

Let’s hope Igbinoghene keeps breaking up passes – they’re clearly picking on him

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:51 pm

…..Yeah, we did. The pick play doesn’t often get called. Clemson beat Alabama with that same play, in the national title game a couple of years ago.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:50 pm

Dodged a bullet there

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:50 pm

…..It was the Huskies’ time to come up empty! Auburn still leads, 15-13!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:49 pm

…..Henry will try from 41. Kick is HOOOKED! NO GOOD!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:49 pm

…..Huge stop!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:49 pm

…..Push it way back to the 23. Third and 21. Who’s on Fuller, batted down at the line!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:48 pm

…..Nice! Offensive P. I. 15 yards!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:48 pm

….They picked Dean.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:48 pm

…..3rd and 5, at the eight. Motion. Here’s Browning, to Fuller, and he scores, but a flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:47 pm

…..Browning will do it, knocked away by Igbinoghene!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:47 pm

…..2nd and 5, watch the fade.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:47 pm

Defense is getting smoked

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:47 pm

…..New set of downs at the 13. Under center. Man coverage. Give Gaskin, got almost 5.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:46 pm

…..2nd and 8 at the Auburn 22. Wildcat, Gaskin will give to Akmed, first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:45 pm

…..Gaskin stutter steps, picks up two.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:45 pm

…..Jordyn Peters, not even a starting corner on Fuller.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:45 pm

…..2nd and 9. Fake, will fire left, and another miraculous catch by Fuller.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:44 pm

OMG – if you get flagged for pass interference, you should at least bat the ball away – ridiculousness

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:44 pm

…..At the Auburn 49. Here’s motion. Screen to Achmet, tripped up for only one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:44 pm

…..And Dean gets flagged! Bogus.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:43 pm

…..1st and 10 at the Washington 27. Browning floats one, caught, hey, they pushed off!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:43 pm

…..And another flag, Washington gets a hold.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:43 pm

We’re really missing Kerryon Johnson – it doesn’t appear anyone is worthy of filling his shoes

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:42 pm

…..Only a 34 yard punt. We benched the Aussie, for this?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:42 pm

…..Marshall will boot it, fair caught at the 37.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:42 pm

….WHO would bite on a play fake, on 3rd and 13?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:41 pm

…..3rd and 13. Trips right, fake, will screen, Slayton gets two. Usless play call.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20185:41 pm

Gus, don’t get mad; fix it. Earn your salary.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:41 pm

….3 wides. Stidham has time, will be flushed, and has to throw it away.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:40 pm

…..Back Auburn up, 2nd and 12. Substitution.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:40 pm

…..2nd and 7. Whistles, Horton jumped.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:40 pm

…..Give to Martin, will stretch to the 35.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:39 pm

…..Here’s a fake, fires to the 33, Nate Craig Myers!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:39 pm

….They pick up the flag, but Auburn is backed up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:38 pm

…..Igbinoghene takes it, and is POPPED at the 15, and a flag. Wow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:38 pm

…..2nd half is about to begin! Washington will kick off. Noah Igbinoghene and Whitlow deep.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:37 pm

….In the SEC, Tennessee trails West Virginia 13-7, at the half. Georgia leads Austin Peay big, 38-0 early in the 3rd. Kentucky holds a slim 21-20 lead over Central Michigan. Missouri and Arkansas are coasting near halftime. Mizzou leads UT Martin 38-7, and Arkansas is up 31-6 over Eastern Illinois.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:34 pm

…..Wow. Maryland hung on, and beat Texas 34-29!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:33 pm

…..Auburn did have a time of possession advantage, 18:08 to just 11:52 for Washington, and Auburn gets the ball first in the second half. Maybe that will be a factor down the stretch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:32 pm

…..Another thing killing Auburn is penalties. 5 for 54, thus far. Washington has 2 for 20.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:31 pm

…..The red zone woes are a little different, this time. We can’t get it to 3rd and short. We’re facing 3rd and long against an elite secondary, every time.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20185:29 pm

Same ol’ Gus. Red zone woes.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:28 pm

….Auburn managed only 3.6 yards per rush as a team, and a chunk of it was on that trick “hide the ball” fake near halftime.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:28 pm

…..Kam Martin leads all rushers with 52 yards on 13 carries.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:27 pm

…..Auburn MUST cover Aaron Fuller, in the second half. He had 5 catches, and no other Washington receiver had more than 1.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:26 pm

…..Auburn dominated the yardage numbers in the first half, 286 to 217. Most amazing stat? Auburn did not punt in the first half, nor turn the ball over on downs. And still has only 15 points.

meathead530 September 1, 20185:24 pm

Me too. We’ve seen this problem before.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:24 pm

…..I’m still bothered that Auburn got to the red zone 5 times, and only has 15 points.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:23 pm

…..Auburn tried to wear Washington’s defensive front down some, but didn’t have much luck. That might pay dividends later, but I’m not sure, at this point.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:22 pm

…..I have not seen much slipping around by Auburn, this game, so that’s good.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:21 pm

…..There’s a chess match going on at the receiver spots. Last season, Auburn’s DBs broke passes up, even with their backs turned, by watching for the receiver’s hands to go up for the catch. Washington appears to have scouted that, and has guys faking catches early. Auburn is biting, and getting flagged.

meathead530 September 1, 20185:18 pm

Looks like a Gus coached team. Talent is definitely there though.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:18 pm

…..The coffee is gone, and something more formidable is in order, in this tense game.

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20185:18 pm

How did that last play of the half have any chance to score?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:17 pm

…..That was a dumb call. Halftime, Auburn 15, Washington 13.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:17 pm

Stupid playcall

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:17 pm

…..3rd and 4. Screen to Davis, dodging, out at the 48, but the clock was out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:17 pm

…..It is probably Hail Mary time. It would be hard to complete something, AND get the clock stopped.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:16 pm

….We have six seconds, and Auburn calls time.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:16 pm

…..2nd and 16, screen to the 41 is Martin.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:15 pm

…..Holding on Harrell.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:15 pm

……2nd and 5. Flag, and Stidham runs, drive killer.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:15 pm

….Fires to Shenker, to the 40 and out of bounds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:14 pm

…..And Auburn will down it, NO, Davis, to the 36 on the hidden ball!

AETiger AETiger September 1, 20185:14 pm

Wow, that was some drive by UW

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:14 pm

…..43 seconds left, two timeouts left for Auburn.

AUNation AUNation September 1, 20185:14 pm

We’ve got to get pressure on Browning. If we dont they can do that all day.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:13 pm

…..Here is a pooch kick, and it’s fair caught at the 25 by Spencer Nigh.

AUTigerinBR September 1, 20185:13 pm

We don’t need to give them momentum going to half.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:12 pm

Defense already had one foot in the locker room and gave that away – disappointing

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:12 pm

…..We are not getting ANY safety help on those deep balls, and our guys can’t play the ball. We see their arms move, and we grab.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:12 pm

…..Yeah. No bobble. TD. PAT is good, and Washington has cut the Auburn lead to 15-13, with 43 seconds left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:11 pm

….Wow. That was a heck of a catch. Was he in bounds?

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:11 pm

choking

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:11 pm

…..New set of downs, fade, touchdown Pounds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:10 pm

…..Throws deep, pass interference, and caught anyway by Jones, deep in Auburn-land.

AUNation AUNation September 1, 20185:10 pm

Announcer is being stupid. Would not have been grounding, Cox was right there. That’s who JS was trying to flip it to.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:10 pm

…..New set of downs. Will fire to midfield, and to the Auburn 48 is Pitrelli.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:10 pm

Come on D

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:09 pm

…..Browning dumps to Fuller over the middle, dumped at the 36.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:09 pm

….1:23, Both teams have 2 timeouts left.

meathead530 September 1, 20185:09 pm

I prefer TDs.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:09 pm

…..Carlson will boot it away, again. Out of the back of the end zone, again, touchback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:08 pm

…..That review indicates that the refs made the right call. Stidham’s arm came forward, but it was AFTER the ball was already loose off a hit. Fumble. Correct call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:07 pm

…..With 1:23 left in the half, Auburn takes a 15-6 lead.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:07 pm

…..Here it is, GOOOOOD! From 53!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:07 pm

Instead of pronouncing Lafayette, lafet, ABC announcer pronounced it lafeet

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:07 pm

…..Officials won’t review it. Carlson comes in. From 53.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:06 pm

…..Should have been called an incomplete pass, instead called a fumble, and Auburn loses 5 yards on the call.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20185:05 pm

Stidham still not proficient in throwing it away

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:05 pm

…..Covered by Auburn. And Ryan Davis is down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:05 pm

….3rd and 9. At the 30. Bunch set, motion. Stidham will drift, shovels, loose ball!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:04 pm

….Defender pushed him out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:04 pm

……They are running clock. 2nd and 9. Stidham will fire to the end zone, caught, but out of bounds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:03 pm

…..New set of downs, half huddle. Give to Martin, nothing doing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:03 pm

….They had him, and he made that play on his own!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:03 pm

…..Brings up 3rd and 4. Confusion? Under center? Pitch Shivers, and he’s to the 31!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:02 pm

…..2nd and about 6. Give to Whitlow, maybe a yard.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:02 pm

…..At the 44 of Washington, Whitlow bangs to the 39.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:01 pm

…..Here the flip back, will run down the sideline, to the 40!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:01 pm

…..It is, and an automatic first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:00 pm

…..I think that’s defensive holding!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20185:00 pm

…..3rd and 10. Baffling set of play calls. Stidham checking off. Will step up, hit, incomplete, flag?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:59 pm

…..2nd and 10. Martin up the gut again, again no push.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:59 pm

….Or not. Nothing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:59 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Three wides, Martin gets 2.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:58 pm

…..Here’s another kickoff. Igbinoghene and Whitlow deep. Whitlow will break a tackle, reverse field, to the 26.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:57 pm

…..I’d feel good about a long, ball-control, wearing and tearing touchdown drive, about now.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:55 pm

…..With 5:57 left in the half, Auburn still leads, 12-6.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:55 pm

…..Henry from 28, no problem.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:55 pm

…..Auburn went man, and that had no chance with linebackers waiting.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:54 pm

…..3rd and goal. Browning will keep, NOTHING! LOst two!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:54 pm

…..From the eight. Browning will float it, no good! Igbinoghone wasn’t having it!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:52 pm

…..We have Dean with a hand injury, and now Javaris Davis. I would not be surprised with a 2nd down fade call to Fuller. We’d better find him quick, and double him.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:51 pm

…..With 6:46 left in the half, Auburn leads, 12-3, but the Huskies are threatening at the Auburn 8 yard line.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:50 pm

…..2nd and goal from the 8. Pistol set, and they will call time.

Col.Angus Col.Angus September 1, 20184:50 pm

At least the line is as advertised

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:50 pm

…..First and goal. Wildcat. Gaskin will take, and is buried by Derrick Brown after a couple.

AUNation AUNation September 1, 20184:49 pm

Got to keep pressure. When Browning has time to set, hes picking us apart.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:49 pm

…..They’ll tape the hand of Javaris Davis.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:49 pm

…..Tennessee is on the board. They trail West Virginia, 10-7, with about 5 minutes left in the half, in that one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:47 pm

…..They will decline, and have first and goal at the nine, unless the refs do something weird.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:47 pm

….Reviewing. Davis was early, no doubt. Yeah, that’s a catch, too.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:46 pm

…..Javaris Davis flagged, AND injured also.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20184:46 pm

Got behind Davis

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:45 pm

……1st and 20. Going deep, and a flag, caught inside the ten by Fuller.

Col.Angus Col.Angus September 1, 20184:45 pm

More like tackling of course

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:45 pm

….Two guys just tackled Dontavius Russell.

Col.Angus Col.Angus September 1, 20184:45 pm

Finally a holding call

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:45 pm

…..Holding, back ’em up!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:44 pm

…..1st and 10 Washington. From the 40. Flags, as Achmed gets nothing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:44 pm

…..Rumbles for 22, to the Auburn 44.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:44 pm

…..New set of downs to the 37. Browning will give to Achmed, room.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:43 pm

….Brings up 3rd and 10. Browning checking off. Time, will dump to Fuller, and he’s got the first down in the flat.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:42 pm

…..2nd and 14. Sample in motion. More mortion. Screen, getting about 4 McKlatchern.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:42 pm

…..Wing T formation? Wow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:42 pm

…..Washington from the 25. Under center. Browning will give to Achmed, and he’s flattened! Loss of 4!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:41 pm

…..Carlson to kick off again. Like the first three, this one is a touchback!

wpleagle wpleagle September 1, 20184:40 pm

Amen. Would probably have at least 8 more points if two of the FG’s had been touchdowns.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:38 pm

…..I can’t help but feel that opportunities are being squandered, with 3 field goal attempts inside the 20 yard line.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:38 pm

…..With 10:35 left in the half, Auburn takes a 12-3 lead.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:38 pm

…..Anders Carlson comes in again. From 28 yards, this one is good!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:37 pm

…..Wasting a lot of time. Stidham will throw, knocked away on the curl.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:37 pm

…..3rd and 7, for the Tigers. Need a good play call, here.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:36 pm

….2nd and 10. Half huddle, trips right, fake to Martin, rolling, will to the 10.

meathead530 September 1, 20184:36 pm

Let’s get a TD here tigers!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:36 pm

…..Again, no lead blockers.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:36 pm

…..New set of downs. Give Whitlow, will get hit behind the line, nothing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:35 pm

…..2nd and 4. Here’s the fake, will screen to Whitlow, will fight inside the 13!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:35 pm

….At the 24, Martin bounces outside, to the 18!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:34 pm

…..Stidham gives Martin, rumbles down to the 25!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:34 pm

…..4th and about a foot. Tigers going?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:34 pm

….Ugly play call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:34 pm

….3rd and one. Tigers give to Martin, no lead blockers, short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:33 pm

…..Martin up the gut, not much.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:33 pm

….New set of downs, Kam Martin, will rumble to the Washington 45.

meathead530 September 1, 20184:33 pm

Good grief. The penalties.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:33 pm

…..2nd and 9. Stidham will find Seth Williams, first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:32 pm

….Wildcat, Whitlow takes, gets only 1.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:32 pm

……Holding 9, block in the back on 17? McClain? Spot the ball at the Auburn 27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:30 pm

….That’s coming back, Jordyn Peters with the block in the back.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:30 pm

…..4th and 6, Whitford punts low, R. Davis is loose, but flags.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:29 pm

…..Jeremiah Denson!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:29 pm

…..Browning, flips to Gaskin, knocked away! Incomplete!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:28 pm

…..It probably won’t last, but right now, Appy State has a 10-7 over Penn State in Happy Valley, near the end of the first. Wouldn’t that be a stunning upset?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:26 pm

…..Cannella has to catch those contested balls. That’s what he’s in there for, is his size and strength. A better pass would have given him a better chance.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:25 pm

……3rd and about 5, as the first quarter ends. Auburn leads, 9-3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:25 pm

…..Make it 2nd and 5. Give Gaskin, dumped at the line by Davis and Williams!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:25 pm

…..2nd and 10 Huskies. Auburn jumped offsides. D. Russell.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:24 pm

……Fake, Browning flushed, will fire into the Auburn bench, incomplete.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20184:24 pm

Cannella didn’t have much of a chance on that catch – had defenders all over him

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:24 pm

…..A dropped ball, and missed field goal means the Tigers come up empty, on that drive. Tigers still lead, 9-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:23 pm

…..And Carlson pushes it right. No good.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:23 pm

…..In comes Carlson, to try from 33 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:22 pm

…..3rd and 4, at the 14. Trips left. Stidham will take, will throw low to Cannella, dropped.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:22 pm

….2nd and 8. Fake to Whitlow, Stidham, scrambles, slides to the 14.

….At the 45, screen Ryan Davis, loose!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:20 pm

……2nd and 7. Stidham will fire behind Seth Williams, but he’s got it, first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:20 pm

…..Auburn 1st and 10. Here’s two tailbacks, Stidham fakes to Shivers, and keeps, to the 27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:19 pm

…..Here’s the boot! Short, taken at the 3 by Whitlow, to the 23, straight ahead.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:18 pm

…..Noah Igbinoghene and Whitlow drop deep. Henry to kick off for the Huskies.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:17 pm

…..Auburn survived a big pass, and penalty on that drive, and held Washington to a field goal.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:17 pm

….Kick is good, with 2:59 left in the first quarter, Auburn still leads, 9-3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:16 pm

…..Washington sends in the field goal team. Henry from 31.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:16 pm

….Or two. 3rd and 10 Huskies. THree wides. Browning, hit, ball flutters into the turf!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:15 pm

……Browning is flushed, lost a yard!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:15 pm

…..2nd and 8 coming.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:15 pm

…..At the 14 of Auburn, Huskies go. 3 wides, gun. Give Gaskin, bounces outside, chopped down by Davis!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:14 pm

….TD Moultry flagged on both.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:14 pm

…..Call, two fouls on the D. Offsides, and roughing the passer. Tacks on the end of the run. Ouch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:14 pm

….Three wides. Browning will fake with a flag, throws to Fuller deep, inside the Auburn 30.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:13 pm

…..Only a yard. Derrick Brown beat a double team.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:13 pm

…..Double tight ends, heavy look. Pistol set. Give Gaskin into the sideline, nope!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:12 pm

…..Huskies will start at the 25. Browning under center, give to Gaskin, has room to the corner, to the 38.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:12 pm

…..Here’s Carlson for the boot. Third kickoff, same result. Touchback out of the end zone.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:11 pm

…..Stidham is off to a hot start, hitting 7 of his first 8 passes. Kam Martin, 5 carries for 16 yards, not too impressive.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:10 pm

…..Tennessee now trails West Virginia 10-0. That one may get ugly, for the SEC.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:09 pm

….With 5:39 left in the first quarter, Auburn takes a 9-0 lead!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:08 pm

…..In comes Anders Carlson for the field goal attempt. From 32, it’s good!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:07 pm

…..3rd and 5 at the Washington 15. Trips right. Looking, will fire high, Slayton can’t get it.

meathead530 September 1, 20184:07 pm

Pass game looks great. Hope the running game gets going.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:07 pm

…..2nd and 9. 3 wides, checking off. Give to Martin up the gut, pushing the pile, got to about the 14.

meathead530 September 1, 20184:06 pm

I wish ABC would get rid of that yellow box.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:06 pm

….At the 20, dumped to Ryan Davis, not much.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:06 pm

…..Possession play. 4 wides. Cox in the backfield. Fires over the middle, and Nate Craig Myers has the first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:05 pm

…..2nd and 8, Tigers under center, toss to Martin, to the 44. Will set up 3rd and 6.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:04 pm

…..Give to Cox in the middle, a couple.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:04 pm

….In the gun. Stidham will throw on the out, caught!Slayton!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:04 pm

…..Will back Auburn up, 3rd and 16.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:03 pm

…..Drive killer. That’s chop block, 15 yarder.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:03 pm

…..3rd and short, give Martin, flag, has the first down, but what’s the call?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:03 pm

…..2nd and 8. Stidham flushed, dumps to Kam Martin, just short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:02 pm

…..Stidham fakes, will get only a couple.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:02 pm

…..In Landover, Maryland, another northeast rain delay. Maryland leads Texas 31-29.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:01 pm

…..Checking the “last mug of coffee” scoreboard… Georgia mucking around a bit. They only lead Austin Peay 3-0, midway through the first quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:00 pm

…..I think Browning was just trying to throw that away, and his receiver gave up on the play.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20184:00 pm

….Tigers take over at Husky 36!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:59 pm

…..Big rush, forced a bad throw.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20183:59 pm

War Eagle!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:59 pm

…..2nd and 9 Huskies. Substitutions. Shotgun, motion. Empty set, Brown will throw into traffic, DEANNNN! Picked off!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:58 pm

…..Play fake, screen to Fuller, nothing doing!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:58 pm

….3rd and 8. Browning will scramble, will find Sampley for the first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:57 pm

…..Trying islolate Fuller on a safety.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:57 pm

…..2nd and 8. Browning will throw, too far for Fuller.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:57 pm

….New set of downs, pistol set. Give, Gaskin won’t get much, this time.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:56 pm

…..Wham play, on that one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:56 pm

…..First and ten Huskies. Give to Gaskin, has a hole, close to the stake.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:55 pm

…..Carlson to kick off. Fans roaring in the background. This one is drilled into the stands, again!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20183:55 pm

We’ll need to remember Canella – was a beautiful catch

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:55 pm

…..Cannella could not catch a cold, last season. That was a spectacular catch in traffic, that time.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:54 pm

….So, with 11:45 left in the first, Auburn has a 6-0 lead.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20183:54 pm

Two point conversion?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:54 pm

…..Batman formation? Malik Willis will come up short on the conversion.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:53 pm

….TOUCHDOOOOOWWWNNN, AUBURN!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:53 pm

…..3rd and 8 at the Washington 11. Pocket, will fade, Cannella….

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:52 pm

…..Afternoon SEC games starting to kick off. Tennessee already trails West Virginia in Charlotte, 3-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:50 pm

…..Auburn has thrown mostly screens at this defense, wary of an All-American secondary. Just don’t turn it over here, or take a big loss, please?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:49 pm

…..3rd and 8. Three wides. And time called by Auburn. With 11:51 left in the first.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:49 pm

…..2nd and 10. Tigers with three wides. Give Martin, not much into the teeth of that blitz.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20183:48 pm

Seeing runners running in traffic holding the ball with one hand – hope that’s jitters – easy to strip

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:48 pm

…..Stidham fakes, keeps, to the 13. No gain.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:48 pm

…..2nd and 8 for Auburn. Cox out, 4 wides. Martin and Stidham. Will fire to Martin, will get to the stake!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:47 pm

…..New set of downs. Give to Martin, will run to the 21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:47 pm

…..Tigers will spot it at the 36. Slot left, will fake, fires to Ryan Davis, will pick up a dozen!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:46 pm

….Crosses midfield, will get to the 36!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:46 pm

…..In comes the punt team. Ryan Davis deep. Whiford will boot it, Davis…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:45 pm

…Nick Coe just whipped his man.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:45 pm

…..3rd and 10, possession play. Motion across. Pumps, will be SACKED!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:45 pm

…..2nd and 10. Empty set. WIll scramble, right, shovel ball, incomplete!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:44 pm

…..1st and 10 Washington. Pistol set, slot right, runs Gaskin, NOTHING!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:43 pm

…..Huskies will start at the 25.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:43 pm

….And this one is on! Through, and out of the end zone! Touchback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:43 pm

…..First career kickoff, for Anders Carlson for Auburn. Here is the boot! Gaskin and Achmed deep.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:42 pm

…..Kick team heads out on the field.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:41 pm

…..So, the Huskies will get the ball first.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:41 pm

…..Here’s the toss, and Auburn has won. They will defer!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:40 pm

…..We have the toss of the coin, coming up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:39 pm

…..Teams running on!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:39 pm

…..I’m dialed up to ABC, still Buckeyes at this moment.

Squeakywheel September 1, 20183:38 pm

Am seeing 3:45 for Auburn on ABC

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:38 pm

…..Reportedly, the crowd is about 80 percent Auburn fans!

Squeakywheel September 1, 20183:38 pm

Looks like they’re moving Ohio State to another channel

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:36 pm

…..There is a note at the bottom of the ABC broadcast, that the Ohio State/Oregon State game is going to be pushed to ESPNews. Perhaps we’ll have full TV?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:27 pm

….Ole Miss adds a field goal, with 4:30 left in Houston. Ole Miss 47, Texas Tech 27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:23 pm

….It is a final, in Columbia. South Carolina 49, Coastal Carolina 15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:16 pm

…..Ole Miss survives a 4th down attempt. Then runs a QB draw, and Tech AGAIN hits a sliding quarterback, and that’s definitely targeting! 9:03 remains in that game, with Ole Miss up 44-27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:12 pm

…..They have finally kicked off the 2nd half in the Ohio State game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:11 pm

…..My thought are that if the game must go on, they need to at least televise it on the SEC Alternate channel. ESPN and ABC are both owned by Disney.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:09 pm

….Ohio State leads Oregon State 42-14, and they are still at halftime.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:09 pm

…..We could have an issue with the start of this one. Ohio State/Oregon State has been rain-delayed for about an hour, and they are currently on ABC. They could make Auburn wait, OR they could just not televise Auburn till the Ohio State game ends.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20183:00 pm

…..We are about 45 minutes from kickoff, Auburn vs. Washington.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:55 pm

…..Ole Miss goes deep after the flag, touchdown. A. J. Brown. Ole Miss 44, Texas Tech 27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:54 pm

…..They pick up the targeting call, but leave the P-foul. The quarterback was sliding feet-first. Can’t hit ’em like that.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:53 pm

…..Tech will get another defensive player tossed, for targeting.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:53 pm

…..I’ve watch a lot of the Ole Miss tilt. The landsharks have some amazing skill players, but this isn’t a polished football team. Fumbles, short punts, poorly timed penalties. However, they just got by with a blatant grab in the secondary, and stopped Tech on 4th down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:51 pm

…..Checking the BBQ Chip Scoreboard, South Carolina seems to have things well in hand. They lead Coastal Carolina 42-12, with about 9 minutes left in that game. Ole Miss leads Texas Tech after 3, 37-27.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:35 pm

…..Texas Tech isn’t going quietly. They have answered the Ole Miss TD with a big drive of their own. Ole Miss 37, Texas Tech 27, with 5:30 left in the 3rd. And some injuries mounting on the Ole Miss defense…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:24 pm

…..Texas Tech worked their first possession of the second half for a field goal, then Ole Miss breaks a long touchdown run. 37-20 Ole Miss, and it’s slipping away from the Red Raiders…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:05 pm

…..At the half, it’s Maryland 24, Texas 22 as they threw the two point conversion pass out of the back of the end zone.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20182:01 pm

…..Fade route, TD Longhorns. The collapse continues.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:58 pm

…..Maryland is rapidly blowing their game against Texas. Once ahead 24-7 in this one, they’ve run a speed sweep backed up to their own goal line, fumbled and given up a safety. On the kickoff from the 20, they kicked it out of bounds, giving Texas the ball at the 50 yard line, and Texas is moving with just under a minute in the half, trailing 24-16.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:54 pm

…..We could nominate Lane Kiffin and Florida Atlantic for “most inept” today, but one must consider the Lovie Smith era, at Illinois. The Fighting Illini trail lowly Kent State 17-3 at the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:45 pm

…..A number of top 25 games at half, or close to it:
Ohio State 42, Oregon State 14
Oklahoma 42, Florida Atlantic 0
TCU 38, Southern 7
Maryland 24, Texas 14, about 5 minutes left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:42 pm

…..We got to halftime in the early SEC games. Ole Miss 30, Texas Tech 17. South Carolina leads Coastal Carolina 28-3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:40 pm

…..Ole Miss 30, Texas Tech 17, with just a few seconds left in the first half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:38 pm

…..Ole Miss squanders an opportunity. Had first and ten at the 17, but a 3rd down false start AND personal foul, and now they will have to settle for a 39 yard field goal attempt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:31 pm

…..Here’s a surprise score: Maryland 24, Texas 7, midway through the second. The Longhorns getting a rude introduction to this season…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:30 pm

…..Payback call? Ole Miss gets flagged for a questionable pass interference call, on an uncatchable ball. Tech cashes it for a score, and it’s now Ole Miss 27, Texas Tech 17. Just under two minutes left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:17 pm

…..Ole Miss pushes their lead over Texas Tech out to 27-10, about 6 minutes left in the half of that one. In other SEC action, South Carolina leads Coastal Carolina comfortably, 21-3 near the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 20181:12 pm

…..Few surprises, here at the noon hour. The favorites in the top 25 are winning, and most are winning big. Probably the closest game is Clemson 10, Furman 0 in the 2nd quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:52 pm

…..28-0, Oklahoma over Florida Atlantic, end of the first quarter. Ouch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:46 pm

…..Ole Miss going on 4th down, and they bust it for a 39 yard touchdown. Ole Miss 24, Texas Tech 7, in Houston. The Cliff Kingbury death watch officially begins.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:44 pm

…..Checking the hot coffee scoreboard.. No love for Lane Kiffin and his island of misfit toys. Oklahoma is bombing Florida Atlantic, 21-0, still in the first quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:40 pm

…..More woes for Texas Tech. They called a pretty bone-headed no-lead-blocker QB keeper, and their starting quarterback got his ankle rolled on the play, thanks to unblocked Ole Miss defenders crashing down. You have to wonder what the coordinator was thinking…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:35 pm

…..Interesting series. I wasn’t aware that they could review a non-call, and assess a post-play penalty.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:34 pm

…..A ticky-tack review, and tack on a targeting flag to Texas Tech. They had Ole Miss stopped, but automatic first down, AND they lose a starting DB on the ejection. Ole Miss cashes it for a field goal, and leads, 17-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:16 pm

…..And the Ole Miss defense will go back on the field, as the Rebs ran the kickoff back for a score. 14-7 Ole Miss, early. Defense optional, today!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:12 pm

…..And Ole Miss evidently brought the Swiss cheese defense to Houston. Lots of holes! Texas Tech ties the game, and made it look easy.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201812:04 pm

…..T’amu torches the Texas Tech defense on the second play of the game. 7-0 Ole Miss Rebels.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:57 am

…..They are saying on Gameday, that Husky left tackle Adams did not make the trip to Atlanta. That’s who was supposed to block Nick Coe…

AUNation AUNation September 1, 201811:48 am

I am back and forth on this game between nervous and confident. Their OT being out is huge news for AU. Got to win the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:16 am

…..My thoughts after watching lots of Youtube of both teams from last season, is that the game will come down to Auburn’s front seven on defense. Against every team Auburn played until Atlanta, the middle was stuffed, and pretty much both runs and passes were forced outside. And Auburn is built to string out wide plays for nothing, or a loss.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 1, 201811:14 am

…..And we are live! Football is less than an hour away for the early games. We are about 5 hours out from the Auburn/Washington tilt.
