Rip the Razorbacks!

                                                           Another twilight kickoff is on tap.
                                                         Auburn vs. Arkansas, Open Thread.

     War Eagle, everybody! It’s another fall football Saturday, and the Tigers are on the road this week, in Fayetteville against the Arkansas Razorbacks. It’s the last game of the year on Daylight Savings Time, and the first game of this year’s Amen Corner. This one kicks off at 5:00 PM Central Time, and it will be televised on ESPN-2.

     For the Tigers, this game is another obstacle in the path towards an Iron Bowl for all the SEC marbles. For the 3-5 Razorbacks, a win is needed to tonight to keep fleeting bowl hopes alive. Arkansas need 3 wins in their last 4 games to make it to the postseason. Those opponents are Auburn, Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi State in Little Rock, and LSU in Baton Rouge.

     Delightful fall weather is on tap for those attending the game. We’ll have lengthening afternoon shadows and a temperature of 55 degrees at kickoff, quickly falling into the 40s as the sun goes down. There is no chance of rain.

     As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be in during the day at times. We’ll have a live play-by-play at game time. War Eagle, and let’s beat those Razorbacks!

    War Eagle! Happy Game Day. I hope these Tigers run out and run up the score! No mercy. No quit. Let’s Do This!!

    War Eagle!!

  2. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    While I am nervous I truly expect at least a 3 TD win and 350 yards rushing. Big stakes for me in this game. Bragging rights with golfing buddy from Little Rock not to mention I have AU -8.5. Loser pays a 3 day bar tab at next Springs golf tourney in Pinehurst. That is high stakes indeed.

    Haven’t made up my mind as to whether I dine on pulled pork or ribs tonight.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      No! For the love of all things Auburn…..bacon maybe today, but that’s all the pork you should eat. #RespectTheHex

      • MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

        Good point. Maybe a bacon cheesburger

        • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

          …..I’m lightly pan frying my last handful of tilapia filets this afternoon, along with a little roasted asparagus, and some brown rice. And I had over-easy eggs and sliced tomato for breakfast. (Yes, we’re still getting outstanding Sand Mountain tomatoes here, if you know where to find them. Haven’t had the first freeze yet, and these late-season things are mighty good!) No pork today.

  3. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    Has anyone heard anything about who starts, Marshall or Johnson? On another note, the Vegas line has dropped from opening at AU-9 to AU-7.5. What’s up with that? Now I am really getting nervous, they act like they are trying to get some more action on Auburn by dropping the line.

    • AubTigerman AubTigerman says:

      Several close to the inside are saying they feel like Nick starts and JJ plays. But admit it’s still not 100% till game time.

  4. ATL_AU_FAN says:

    Don’t put any faith at all in the line. Vegas wants, as close as possible, an equal number of bets made on each side and the line will change to accomplish this. Vegas doesn’t care who wins or loses the game. The goal is to have enough “losers” to pay the “winners” while Vegas collects their “vig” and thereby always “wins”.
    And with that said, War Damn Eagle!!

  5. SandMountainTiger SandMountainTiger says:

    As usual, I’ll be listening on the radio. I work in a group home on the weekends, and they don’t have any of the ESPN networks. WDE! Pummel the porkers!

  6. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I think Nick starts and plays, also. We need the running game to keep working, and he’s got the magic touch on that zone read. If we stall there, it plays into the Arkansas defense with their pass rush.

    …..I’m back in my “office” for this one, surrounded by screens, my old IBM rapid-response keyboard, my guitars and Stan and Rod for the sound.

    • ATL_AU_FAN says:

      I tend to agree with NM starting and playing but an opportunity for JJ to have significant reps. I’m just in a greedy “pile it on” mindset hopeful that Bert sees an abundance of the “Batman” (aka swinging gate) formation. Matching or exceeding the previous 52-0 results against ARK would bother me none. I really dislike Blowhard Bert’s comments.

  7. AETiger AETiger says:

    How about let’s just win and forget all the rhetoric? WDE!

  8. wpleagle says:

    Mississippi State powered 60 yards for TD after stopping USC three and out on first drive. If MSU can play 60 minutes, the Ole Ball Coach may have a long day. USC liable to be down after that win last week!

  9. wpleagle says:

    double not so fast my friend, on me. Carolina came right back.

  10. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..MSU is having to bring safeties up in the box, and use field-pressure to stop the USC running game. And that’s made them vulnerable down the field. If Connor Shaw stays healthy, the Gamecocks run away with this one. Prescott will make some plays, but not enough to keep pace.

  11. tigertracker says:

    I’ve never been a fan of running up the score for style points. However it is a necessity for bcs championships. Oregon runs it up on everyone and still can’t get one. Today is the day the arky auburn rivalry gets a little more heated. Outside of cam they’ve won 4 of last 5 and have really just been a thorn in our foot for longer than that. This is the perfect storm for us to obliterate the hogs today. We need style points, we need a dominant win on the road, Gus wants it, Bert needs it, HUNH vs fake injuries. In all the auburn everyday episodes I’ve watched both Gus’s message and that of his motivational speakers has been the same. One play at a time and handle your business on each play. We won’t win every play, but over the course of the game win more plays than your opponent and the scoreboard will reflect that at games end. Folks we have buy in, coaching, and we have depth. Let’s give them a November to remember!!! War eagle.

  12. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I think they actually did away with victory margin in most computer elements of the BCS. Too bad the voters can’t look at it that way. Heck, if you won by 21 or more, you dominated. That 31-10 win over the Citadel shouldn’t hurt BCS standings.

    • tigertracker says:

      Aren’t we getting more love from computers than the human polls that matter right now. I think you’re right about computers ditching scoring margin, but will always be bias in humans. My biggest fear is an ’04 repeat right now. Still a long way off from fruition, but if we win out and beat bama we knock off the sec best chance for bcs title game. Unless Oregon, FSU, and maybe ohio state flop 2 of those 3 will get nod over AU. Hate to think the sec could get left out. You want to be the man you gotta beat the man, but the rest of the nation is tired of the sec dominance and probably dumps us quick if given a slight window of opportunity. But I’d love a rematch with Oregon or shot at either of the other 2. Long way to go but the fact I can dream that at nov 2 is amazing!

      • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

        …..As Gus would say, today we take care of Arkansas. The rest of that stuff will work itself out if we keep winning, or it won’t.

        …..It would be interesting to see Ellis Johnson match wits with Oregon’s offensive brain trust. Problem is that we don’t have Nick Fairley or Josh Bynes this year. On the other hand, our secondary is much better than the 2010 group, I think.

        • tigertracker says:

          I know I know. Arky arky arky. But Gus got me fired up last night on the everyday episode I watched. If he’s got me believing anything is possible the players believe too. You can see it in their eyes during the speeches. He’s trying to keep them grounded with the one play at a time mantra and it’s working. These dudes all want to make big plays on both sides of the ball because so many players are getting chances. A lot of guys just get a few chances a game and they’re making the most of it. Be it grant, Davis, uzomah, smith, ford. The list just keeps going. No we don’t have those two guys, but I’d argue our 8 man rotation on the line is stronger in the 4th than what fairleys group could do. They’re all more active across the board and disrupt our opponents late in games. They are without question better conditioned front to back and have for the most part been in position to make plays. Mission accomplished. I just really like the way this teams chemistry is shaping up from my limited, koolaid sipping, orange tinted glasses perspective. Ready to see how our front 7 handles the run tonight.

  13. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    USC starting to put some distance between them and Mullen. Up 34-10

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..Yep. MSU is loading the box, and can’t stop USCe. And there have been Bulldog miscues. That series right before the half was a disaster. And Mullen was going berserk on the sideline with his players and assistants.

      ……They can’t even hand off on a jet sweep, right now.

      • MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

        Turnovers kill, USC was up 17-10 at the time they were 0-6 on 3rd down conversions. A stat like that usually means you are behind

  14. tigertracker says:

    Just turned on MSU cocks game. Mullen meltdown alert? Just showed several clips of bad Prescott plays. Yikes I hope Marshall stays composed tonight. Just txt one of my state buddies to get where he stands on Mullen right now. Curious if it’s getting hot over there.

  15. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Chex Mix scoreboard, only one SEC game early today. South Carolina leads Mississippi State late in the game, 34-16. It’s trash time, in this one with MSU down 3 scores with 4 minutes left.

  16. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The Outdoor Cocktail party starts shortly, with Florida battling Georgia. The loser of that one will be eliminated from the SEC East race.

    …..Here in the Tragic City, UAB leads Middle Tennessee on homecoming, 13-7 early in the 4th quarter. This one’s actually on TV here in town, on FSN.

  17. wpleagle says:

    Anybody have thoughts on the Ga – Fla cocktail party contrary to the line? I’m looking for Ga to pull this one off, but probably less than a TD.

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..I think Georgia dominates. They have the line to counter Florida’s strength, and Grantham’s 3-4 will baffle the young UF quarterback.

  18. wpleagle says:

    Woo. Gurley looks healthy!

  19. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……It’s hard pulling for the UAB Blazers. Ahead most of the game, they just gave up a 93 yard TD pass to a slow fullback, who broke at least three tackles. Ouch. Blazers now trail Middle Tennessee 14-13, midway through the 4th quarter.

  20. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    I’m looking for Gus to pour it on in this one. I’m hoping for something like 60-10.

  21. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..UAB fields a kickoff at the six yard line, and the receiver goes to a knee to catch it. Ouch.

    …..UGA off to a 7-0 lead on their first possession over Florida. And true to form, the UGA O-line dominated.

  22. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..UAB stabs itself in the heart with a pick six thrown with no green shirt on the screen. They trail Middle Tennessee 21-13, now, 6:26 left in the game.

  23. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Perry to Nelson for the score, and UAB is within two, with 1:52 remaining.

  24. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Perry rollout keeper, CRACKS into the endzone for TWO! The game is tied at 21!

  25. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..UAB can’t get ‘em to overtime. They give up a 34 yard draw play. Then a hail mary to the one yard line with 7 seconds left, Middle Tenn has no timeouts, can’t get lined up, and UAB CALLED A TIMEOUT FOR THEM!

  26. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The field goal is good, and UAB loses their homecoming game to Middle Tennessee, 24-21.

  27. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And we’ll switch over to the cocktail party, and UGA has this one well in hand late in the first quarter, 17-0 over the Gators.

  28. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The Florida defense is trying to hang out, but UGA has taken a 20-0 lead early in the second quarter. That looks like a pretty insurmountable lead, as incapable as Florida’s offense has been.

  29. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In the Sour Grapes department, the Scot Loeffler offense fails again. Despite gaining 446 yards against a hapless Boston College defense, four critical turnovers doom the Hokies. They lose to B. C. 34-27, falling to 4-4 on the season.

  30. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn/Arkansas pregame news is trickling out, now. It appears that tight end Brandon Fulse is not in warmups, and will miss the third of the last four games. Tough news.

    …..Right tackle Avery Young is warming up with the ones on the O-line, but Patrick Miller has made the trip, and is warming up also.

  31. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Nick Marshall will start for the Tigers at QB, sez Charles Goldberg, over at Auburntigers.com.

  32. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jake Holland will start at middle linebacker.

  33. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Louis and Coates will start at receiver, with Uzomah at tight end.

  34. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Community Coffee scoreboard, only one SEC game currently underway, in Jacksonville, Florida. After a missed Florida field goal attempt, Georgia maintains a 23-3 lead midway through the 3rd.

    …..In earlier action, South Carolina dumped Mississippi State 34-16 in Columbia.

  35. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Arkansas has won the toss, and want the ball, to keep it away from Auburn. Kickoff is moments away! War Eagle!

  36. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Lots of empty seats, in Reynolds Razorback Stadium today.

  37. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Cody Parkey to kick it off, and this one is high, will be taken by Marshall 3 yards deep for a touchback.

  38. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Allen brings out the Razorbacks. One back set. Give to Williams, big gainer, Auburn blown off the ball.

  39. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Razorback 38. Here’s a fake, and Allen has to dump it off incomplete! Dee Ford!

  40. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Give to williams, and Auburn just can’t tackle. Whitehead finally with a stop, Holland misread that. First down past midfield.

  41. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Williams again off the left side, and Auburn just got caved in, got 10 yards.

  42. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and short, play fake, deep ball, caught? NO! juggling it… they say. We’ll have to see that again.

  43. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Replay…. I don’t know about that call, there was a bobble, close.

  44. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Comfimed, No score!

  45. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and short at the Auburn 41. Double tights, I set. Sneak, Allen has it to the 39, first down.

  46. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of Razorback downs. Allen draws it to Collins, has it inside the 34.

  47. AETiger AETiger says:

    Come on defense. Don’t let Ark get their confidence.

  48. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. Wildcat, Small has it, will be close, has the first down.

  49. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Auburn 29, 1sst and 10. Henry in motion. Fake, flags down, will hit Collins out of the backfield, to the 22. Offsides AUburn, they’ll take it. Therezie.

  50. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 5. I set, Allen will give, up the gut, and Williams will be stuck by McKinzy, no gain!

  51. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. in the gun. rolling left, will keep, slides down at the 20, short.

  52. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Allen comes up limping, on 3rd and 1. Twisted ankle?

  53. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..No flags. They are work on Allen, and an injury timeout ensues.

  54. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….A. J. Darby in at quarterback on a 3rd and short. I set, Small on the hunt play, and he’ll bull through Tigers to the 15.

  55. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs, wildcat snap to Collins who rolls left, won’t get much.

  56. AETiger AETiger says:

    The Wildcat is a moronic play. Yet another example.

  57. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9. Derby stays in, under center. Drops to throw, will flip a screen, tipped, and McKinzy HAS it! Picked off!

  58. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Tigers ESCAPE, with no points given up!

  59. AETiger AETiger says:

    Way to make a play “d”!

  60. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Dodged a bullet there. Way to go Dee!!

  61. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dee Ford went HIGH to tip it, and it floated down in traffic, where McKinzy secured it! Arkansas drove to the Auburn 15 without completing a pass, but turns it over on a great play by Dee Ford!

  62. wpleagle says:

    HUGE sigh of relief!

  63. tigertracker says:

    Int Mckenzie. Commence operation soul reaper!

  64. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers have it in the pistol, Mason will crack through there off tackle, 14 yards!

  65. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason off the left, will be close to another first!

  66. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Going quickly, Mason is up near midfield, another first down.

  67. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Mason=Beast

    Three runs 30+ yards

  68. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Fake on the zone read, Marshall keeps, will go down at the 32!

  69. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason will be tripped up for two.

  70. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Huddle, trips left, Prosch in motion, and we’re flagged for false start. Robinson.

  71. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….That will bring up 2nd and 13 at the 36. Uzomah in motion. Give to Mason, will lose yardage to the left.

  72. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 15. Marshall will screen it to Coates, will lose more yardage. That’s back out of field goal range. Robinson killed us with that false start.

  73. AETiger AETiger says:

    Penalties kill drives.

  74. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    LOUUUSY playcalling

  75. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Steven Clark will pooch this one, and Coates will stop it from going in, down at the two!

  76. tigertracker says:

    Parkey sticks the landing and Coates with the seal. Knuckle down D!

  77. AETiger AETiger says:

    What a punt by Clark. We will miss him next year. Didn’t we get a highly recruited punter last yr?

  78. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Hopefully the D will come out gunning to stop the run…..and do the job

  79. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Both teams did a lot of pulling and trapping on their first drives, gashing for good yardage. Neither team could come up with points, though.

  80. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Derby remains in at quarterback for the Razorbacks. Allen apparently twisted an ankle on his slide earlier.

  81. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Give to Collins, will push to maybe the four.

  82. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Arkansas in the I. Motion by Hatcher. Give to Williams, will be swarmed down at the 8.

  83. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 4, possession play. Bobbled snap, quick throw to Hatcher, caught for a first down to the 14.

  84. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10 at the 14. Give to Collins, big hole, Whitehead drags him down from behind up at the 30.

  85. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Fumbled snap, Auburn’s ball? YESSSSSS!

  86. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Call: Auburn’s ball! Kris Frost at the Arkansas 29!

  87. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Fortunately Arky is being loose with the ball. We are getting owned on the line

  88. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Marshall will take, and he’s giving to Mason, will break it down the right side, horsecallared down at the nine!

  89. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Horse collar on Mason

  90. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Flag waved off, but it’s first and goal at the nine.

  91. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Or not

  92. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the nine, Mason up the gut, slips through, and IN!

  93. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….TOUCHDOOOOOWWWWN, AUBURN!

  94. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    That’s how you do!!

  95. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Batman formation, pulled in, and Parkey’s PAT is good! With 2:35 left in the first quarter, Auburn leads, 7-0!

  96. AETiger AETiger says:

    Mason = BEAST

  97. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Two Razorback turnovers prove costly.

  98. tigertracker says:

    200 for tre today. 50 a quarter. He can do it.

  99. AETiger AETiger says:

    UF just scored again. Now 20-23 Dawgs. IF UGA loses this one, Richt may be in trouble,

  100. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..With Brandon Allen out, Mason may not get three quarters.

  101. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey will tee it up. This kickoff is high and deep, and will hit past the end zone!

  102. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Allen is back from the locker room, and back on the field.

  103. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here are the Razorbacks in the I. Play fake, Allen rolls right, will be spilled by McKinzy out of bounds at the 28.

  104. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7. Pitch to Collins, will go down for no gain! Wright by the jersey!

  105. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 7. Twins right. BIG RUSH! Allen throws it away, and a flag to boot!

  106. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Call, dead ball, on Davis. Wow. Chris Davis. Man.

  107. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    That’s BS right there

  108. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Well, new set of downs for the Razorbacks. Collins will crash right, won’t get back to the line.

  109. AETiger AETiger says:

    Damn it! Stupid, Davis, STUPID!!!

  110. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 11. Allen will roll left,fires upfield, Herndon has it at the Auburn 43, In front of Mincy.

  111. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Offset I, reverse to Hatcher, and he’ll make the 39. Davis keeps him in check.

  112. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

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

  113. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Davis got called earlier on a payback “hands to the face” deal. Can’t retaliate! The second guy always gets caught.

    • AETiger AETiger says:

      That play will keep Ark in the game. We could have seized control of the game there.

  114. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….checking the Club-400 scoreboard, Florida has scored again, and is within 3 of Georgia. It’s 23-20, early in the 4th quarter in Jacksonville.

  115. wpleagle says:

    Don’t let the Arky jinx hit again.

  116. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 6 Razorbacks. Pitch to Williams, will throw, and a bad throw out of bounds.

  117. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 6, in the gun, draw to Collins, will break tackles down near the 20. Holland left gaping.

  118. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Tiger 23. Fake, will give to Hatcher on the sweep, run out of bounds to the 19.

  119. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. Fullback Small up the gut, not much.

  120. AETiger AETiger says:

    Love the Arky Wildcat.

  121. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5 for the razorbacks in the gun. Time, will throw one way out of bounds.

  122. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Zack Hocker in for the FG try, and this one is good, with 12:52 left in the half. Auburn still leads, 7-3.

  123. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Thanks to Davis’ personal foul, and getting repeatedly buffaloed on the ground, Auburn has already played a lot of defensive snaps. It’s time for the offense to chew up some yards. Penalty free, people!

  124. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the kickoff, and Hocker will try an onside kick, and Mitchell has it for Auburn! And offside on the Razorbacks added on!

  125. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers at the Razorback 38. Here’s a give to Grant on the sweep, and he’s to the 33!

  126. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. Fake, will flip to Grant on the screen, will get the first down, to the 24!

  127. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……New set of downs, checking off. Give Mason, will bull up the middle, and he’s got another first down!

  128. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Another quick give to Mason off the left, down inside the ten!

  129. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5 from the seven, fake, keep, will be out at the 4 yard line.

  130. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2. Mason, will SCORE, untouched!

  131. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers take the double digit lead!

  132. AETiger AETiger says:

    Way to go BEAST Mason & O line!

  133. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey is up and good, and with 10:53 left in the half, Auburn leads, 14-3!

  134. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Neither team looks reactive at all in the center of the field. The running back is past the linebackers before they realize what happened.

  135. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Cody Parkey will set up for his third kickoff of the game. And true to form, this one is blasted 5 yards deep, touchback.

  136. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give to Small on the hunt, and he’s got about 4 to the 29.

  137. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. Pitch to Williams, has room, and he’s close to the first down. Good seal blocks on that one.

  138. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 1. Here’s another wildcat, Collins takes the snap, and he gets a good spot, first down.

  139. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. I set. Two tight ends. Give to Collins, hit and driven back at the 37. Holland on the stop.

  140. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Allen will fake, and has time, will go deep, over the head of everyone incomplete. Ryan White in coverage.

  141. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 8. Shotgun for Arkansas. Allen will take, fires left, and that’s caught for a first down at the 45. on the slant.

  142. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and ten. Give to Williams, will stumble to the 49.

  143. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. At the Auburn 49, fake, will find a tight end in traffic, and another first down.

  144. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……At the 40. Will drop, and misses Henry on the seam route, incomplete.

  145. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Give to Collins, and he’s loose through the heart of the Auburn defense for 18.

  146. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    jeez this shouldn’t be this hard

  147. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….At the Auburn 22, new set of downs. Give to Collins, will be stopped for a loss, Blackson turned him back.

  148. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 12. Blitz, and Allen got hit throwing, and incomplete.

  149. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and long Razorbacks. Trips right. Allen will dump over the middle, and inside the five to hatcher. Wow.

  150. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Great pass by Allen

  151. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..First and goal. Wildcat, COllins, to the three.

  152. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and goal. I set. Allen fakes, will hit Small underneath, he’s dumped at the one by Davis.

  153. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Third and goal at the one. Give to Williams, will not make it!

  154. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Javier Mitchell on the stop.

  155. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Can we stop’em here???

  156. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th down, going. Willams, STOPPPED! Mitchell!

  157. AETiger AETiger says:

    TIGER D!!!! That is how you do it!

  158. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Javier Mitchell, with two CRUCIAL tackles!

  159. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Epic fail Bert!!

  160. tigertracker says:

    Wow let’s get a nice half ending score!

  161. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I can’t believe this red zone defense!

  162. AETiger AETiger says:

    UGA found their Offense. Looks like they may eeek one out

  163. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..There is only 3:08 left in the half on this one, and it seems like Auburn has hardly had the ball.

  164. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the two for the Tigers, backed up. Coleman in at tight end, give to Mason, will fight to the seven.

  165. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Keeper Marshall, pushe dback short.

  166. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Possession play. Give Mason, and very close. Made it!

  167. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10. Give to Mason again, out to the 18!

  168. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and 5. QB draw, and there’s a loss, and a flag. Hold on Auburn to boot.

  169. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Holding on Avery Young, declined. 47 seconds left in the half.

  170. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 10, 47 seconds, and the Razorbacks still have all three timeouts. Marshall to throw short to Coates, dropped ball. Wow.

  171. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    You pass NOW???

  172. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……25 ticks left. Clark booms it out, and Herdon fair catches at the Arkansas 47, and only 17 seconds. Razorbacks flagged!

  173. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Leaping called, that’s an Auburn first down!

  174. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers take a knee, and it’s halftime. Tigers lead, 14-3. Very lucky there, late in the half. Almost gave Arky a chance to score.

  175. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Well for not playing that well, to be up 11 is a big plus.

  176. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers gave up 199 first half yards, including 139 on the ground. But costly turnovers and a failure on the goal line leave the Razorbacks with only 3 points.

  177. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Club-400 scoreboard, Georgia hangs on, winning 23-20 over Florida.

  178. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Dudes.
    1. What’s up with our D?

    2. MASON!!!!!!

    3. Second half. Break the hex. No b******t. No excuses.

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..ISO plays, and unblocked Auburn linebackers standing like deer in the headlights. They run up the gut every time we go dime, and we give up 20 yards or so.

      • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

        Ugh!!!

      • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

        I mean here’s what freaks me out. We look the most vulnerable on D outside of the first game…and we are playing Arky. Yikes.

  179. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The Arkansas failed onside kick was big, too. That was Javier Mitchell on the knockdown and recovery, too. Three big plays by the redshirt freshman!

  180. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……You’d say put Frost out there, but he gave up a free release on Tampa two coverage on a big throw over the middle, that put Arkansas inside the five. Didn’t get deep enough.

    • tigerpaw75 says:

      Shows how much we need quality ML help. Cameron Toney should help next year after redshirting, and maybe Tre Williams is able to play as a freshman. Holland’s expiring eligibility will be addition by subtraction. I hate slamming on players but a senior should play better than he does.

  181. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Special teams is playing hard core tonight.

  182. AETiger AETiger says:

    Bottom line, Ark keep the ball, but could not score; plus they had critical errors/mistakes & AU took advantage of them. In the second half, we need to score, score, score. Getting the passing game going a little bit would be advantageous.

  183. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Arkansas has run the ball on nearly everyone this year, so I’m not too surprised by that. The reason they lose is their defense, and they shoot themselves in the foot. Bert should have just sneaked the ball over from the one, instead of two deep handoffs. The onside kick was a real brain-fart, too. Auburn was on that thing before it went ten yards. There was no film indicating any weakness, there. Auburn’s pretty sound, there.

  184. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will receive to start the second half, wonder if they’ll be trying another pooch shot?

  185. CapnVegetto says:

    Auburn NOT playing well at all, stupid penalties, pass defense looks like last year, stopping ourselves on drives, can’t stop arky’s offense unless inside the 20. Up by 11. Should be a lot less maybe even a deficit, but arky keeps screwing up. Play like this against TN or GA and we lose. Play like this against the turds we lose by 6 touchdowns.

    • tigerpaw75 says:

      Agreed overall Cap’n, but last year we don’t make the 4th down stand, we don’t see Tre Mason running for 90+ in the first half. Hopefully we have some good plays scripted here in the 2nd half.

      • tigerpaw75 says:

        Basically, there are a few rays of sunshine!

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      I’m going back to what acid said at 7:33…..

  186. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s Zach Hocker to kick this one off. Mason and Bray will go deep for the Tigers. It’s sundown in Fayetteville. This kick is lined out of bounds at the two!

  187. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….I’m pretty sure Bert didn’t call that one…

  188. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here come the Tigers. Keeper, and Marshall will stumble out to the 39.

  189. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5, screen to Louis, out to the 49!

  190. AETiger AETiger says:

    Alright, a first down by passing.

  191. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of downs, Mason up the gut for 7!

  192. tigerpaw75 says:

    Louis is a big dude…

  193. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Quick screen louis, to the 45!

  194. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs, Mason, kicks outside, and he’s ahead to the 31!

  195. tigerpaw75 says:

    Mason is a powerful runner – he delivers licks to the defense

  196. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Johnson in. 2nd and 6. To throw, down the middle, Coates has it at the 17!

  197. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……First and ten, give to Mason, he’s down to the nine!

  198. tigerpaw75 says:

    OL is opening gaping holes here

  199. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give Mason again, stopped for nothing.

  200. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2 Tigers. Marshall back in. Checking off. Give to Mason, pushes the pile, he’s to the five!

  201. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……First and goal Tigers! They’ll go with three wide, Mason won’t get much up the gut.

  202. tigerpaw75 says:

    Mason is almost Ben Tate/Mike Dyer-like in his abiliy to get the touch first down yards when we need them

  203. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and goal at the five. Fake, Mason up the gut, walks IN!

  204. AETiger AETiger says:

    Mason = BEAST, give him 3 TDs

  205. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..TOUCHDOOOWNNNNN, AUBURN!

  206. tigerpaw75 says:

    Marshall’s ball handling has improved so much since the beginning of the year.

  207. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey is up and good, and with 10:52 left in the third, Auburn leads 21-3.

  208. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Rod said that “you could have driven a dump truck through that hole!” Alex Kozan on the pulling block.

  209. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Bert must have gotten a pizza at halftime…..he made no adjustments to our rushing attack.

    good for us….21-3.

  210. CapnVegetto says:

    Arky CANNOT stop our O. Defense needs to remove head from posterior and get the hell off the field.

  211. tigerpaw75 says:

    Isn’t it amazing what a difference a better coach and a decent QB make? This is basically the same team as last year. Chiz/Loeffler/Van Gorder just had no idea how to be successful with these guys.

  212. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Love watching the hurry-up gesture! Parkey will kick another one thru, and out of the endzone.

  213. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Timeout for commercials? Man, love the hurry-up gesture. I’ve been using that in the car, hoping to get the attention of slo-mo drivers around me!

  214. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..What will Arkansas do, down three scores? Can they keep running it?

  215. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……..Here come the Hogs. They’ll give to Williams off tackle, and he’s got room. Will pick up about 25.

  216. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Would someone check to see if Brian Van Gorder is on the sidelines??

  217. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That was just poor tackling. New set of downs. Here’s a fake, and Allen will go deep, and a bad pass towards a wide open tight end in the end zone.

  218. AETiger AETiger says:

    Wow talk about dodging a bullet.

  219. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Jeez if Allen was accurate at all, this game would be 21-17

  220. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Davis hit his knee falling down on that pass. Not good.

  221. CapnVegetto says:

    OMG our defense SUCKS today. Arky stopping itself again. Wow a good team would be KILLING us today.

  222. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Davis is back up, under his own power running off the field. Wheeeewwww…

  223. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Razorbacks. Draw to Collins, he gets about 4, Holland in position.

  224. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 6, possession play. Allen will dump over the middle, wide open, Henry has it, pick play?

  225. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Arky’s backs are good but we are not being disciplined in our defense lanes and running ourselves out of position, making us lunge and arm tackle.

  226. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Yes, it is! Offensive pass interference.

  227. broken_towel broken_towel says:

    Long time lurker. Can we chill with calling Bielema Bert? That was my dad’s name and he was the reason I went to Auburn.

    WDE

  228. AETiger AETiger says:

    What the heck with this defense?
    Thank goodness for this pick penalty

  229. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 21, now. Draw, Collins with room, will get up to midfield, but Therezie slowed him down, 4th down.

  230. AETiger AETiger says:

    1st Arky Punt of the game?

  231. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Where was Collins against the rollin Turd?

  232. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and 11. Irwin’s first punt. This one is inside the ten, and will be downed at the 8. Nice nine-iron shot, there.

  233. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..We’ll stop with the “Bert” stuff. I never really understood it, anyway.

  234. CapnVegetto says:

    Arky stops themselves again. I hope we get through this. They ever stop screwing up this could get interesting.

  235. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..A TD drive by Auburn would ice this game, I think. Can we call and execute good plays? They are going to cram the box with us boxed in.

  236. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers on 1st and 10. Mason up the gut, for two.

  237. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Fake, keeper, Marshall hit hard, might have a yard.

  238. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Ok, lets not get conservative here. Another score pretty much salts this one away.

  239. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 7, possession play. Fake, will air it out, Coates, HAS it! He will SCOREEEEEEEE!

  240. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..WHAT a catch and run!

  241. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Yeah Buddy, that’s what I’m talking about!!

  242. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..88 YARDS! Parkey is up and good, and Auburn leads 28-3 with 6:39 left in the third!

  243. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    TOTM is this what you were looking for???

  244. CapnVegetto says:

    Dammit now we have to watch the defense again.

  245. tigerpaw75 says:

    Sammie is Mr. Deep Ball – but wish he wouldn’t catch the ball so low…makes it easy to slip through the hands or bounce of the breadbasket.

    All that said – Sammie did a great job adjusting to the ball on that.

  246. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers with the 28-3 lead! Parkey will kick off. To the end zone, but Marshall brings it out, poor coverage, andhe’s loose. Mincy will FINALLY run him out, at the Auburn 13. Mincy hit in the face.

  247. tigerpaw75 says:

    Damn…that was unnecessary!

  248. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Both starting corners hurt, now.

  249. CapnVegetto says:

    Ice the game my ass. I’m glad you guys aren’t coaches. :)

  250. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mincy limps across the field.

  251. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Damn, Mincy with the hurt knee…..hopefully a bruise

  252. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the 13, unbalanced line, halfback pass, henry can’t get it! Too high!

  253. tigerpaw75 says:

    Cmon Jonathan Jones and Ryan Smith/White

  254. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..We got by with one, there. Here’s a fade, and Hatcher has it for a score.

  255. tigerpaw75 says:

    Perfect throw for the Arky TD

  256. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Ouch. Razorbacks score. Hocker is up and good, and they cut the Auburn lead to 28-10, with 6:11 left in the third. Ryan White interfered on the first pass, and was beaten on the second. Wow.

    • CapnVegetto says:

      Yeah the zebras missed a blatant pass interference call there.

  257. CapnVegetto says:

    Dammit. That is just piss poor.

  258. tigerpaw75 says:

    Need the O to come up with a grinding drive here.

  259. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..So, Hocker will kick off again. Mason and Bray deep. This one is downed by Mason five yards deep.

  260. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers at the 25, trips left. Screen Grant, and nothing doing.

  261. CapnVegetto says:

    WAY TOO EARLY to call this one over. Come on guys get your heads out of your asses.

  262. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Mason off the left, about 3.Misdirection.

  263. tigerpaw75 says:

    Corey grant doesn’t change direction too well…

  264. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 7. Noise. Marshall holds it, and is sacked, Chris Smith off the right. Avery Young gave that one up.

    • tigerpaw75 says:

      What is up with Patrick Miller? Is he is the doghouse for some reason?

  265. AETiger AETiger says:

    Not a good series at all. Nothing.

  266. CapnVegetto says:

    Dammit. About to be 28-17

  267. tigerpaw75 says:

    3 and out is not what the doctor ordered after the Arky TD

  268. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clark in to punt. Low roller, all the way to the Arkansas 27. Ugly, but covered 53 yards.

  269. tigerpaw75 says:

    53-yard punt helps though

  270. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I set. Allen fakes, will have time, and will miss Herndon out of bounds. Another bad throw.

  271. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 10. Give to Collins, and Swain will stop him for one!

  272. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 9. Tigers diggingin. Blitz, slant, and caught in front of Whitehead, fiirst down at the 40.

  273. AETiger AETiger says:

    How many freaking 3rd & longs are we going to give up?

  274. tigerpaw75 says:

    They are picking on #19 bigtime

  275. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Sweep Collins, into Auburn territory for another first down.

  276. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Draw to Collins, will run out of room at the Auburn 46.

  277. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7. Shotgun. Will roll right, throwback left, picked off, but a flag. Swain hit the receiver early.

  278. CapnVegetto says:

    GOD. If I were Bielima, I’d call 20 passes over the middle in a row. We can’t stop it.

  279. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……That will move Arkansas to the 31. It was a good call.

  280. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Horrble call. Swain looked back

  281. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Throws to the end zone, a push/takedown, and no call? Yes, they threw a flag. Whte about had his head taken off.

  282. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    WTH???

  283. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Williams will power inside the Auburn ten, down to the eight.

  284. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Hand to Williams, stutter step, got a yard to the 7.

  285. tigerpaw75 says:

    are we rotating DL? We aren’t getting much pass rush

  286. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 3 at the nine. Jumbo set. Fake, will fire to Henry, will drop the ball! Incomplete!

  287. tigerpaw75 says:

    FG here is a victory. Need O to step up next with a good answering drive.

  288. AETiger AETiger says:

    Oh my goodness. You have got to be kidding.

  289. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th down. Fake field goal, and they’ll dump it to to the upback, first down. Tate on the grab.

  290. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Anthony Swain is down with a knee injury.

  291. CapnVegetto says:

    OMG. WE SUCK. this is unreal. I can’t believe our defense is this bad. We have really regressed.

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..Swain’s hurt, McKinzy is hurt, Davis is hurt, Mincy is hurt, White is hurt… and we’ve lost 4 other starters on defense before now. I think we’re fighting the good fight, but this is a lot to overcome.

  292. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Horrible call on the pass interference that put Arkansas here. The receiver pulled White down by the helmet, and White was called for interference. Third quarter ends, but Arkansas is threatening, down 28-10.

  293. tigerpaw75 says:

    Is this a bunch of back and forth between Bielema and Malzahn?

  294. tigertracker says:

    What are we doing?

  295. AETiger AETiger says:

    What the hell is Swain doing? I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt, but come on.

    • tigerpaw75 says:

      Wonder if Malzahn is doing it to piss off Bielema

  296. tigerpaw75 says:

    You guys must have seen that Swain was standing there after the play and then just collapsed? Faking injury?

  297. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Gotta get the defense regrouped.

  298. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Could very well be cramps on Swain. Its not like Arky was ready to run a play, plus the qtr was about tho end..

  299. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the two. Give to Small, scores.

  300. AETiger AETiger says:

    We got us a ball game boys. Need a clock consuming drive.

  301. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Belly play to the back side, good call. Hocker’s PAT is up, and good. With 14:54 left in the game, Auburn’s lead is cut to 28-17.

  302. aubb says:

    thats embarassing to fake an injury

  303. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Hocker to kick this one off. It’s low, and Grant will let it go for a touchback.

  304. CapnVegetto says:

    Told ya. 28-17. We are trying as hard as we can to piss this game away.

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      Lets lose the lead before we commit suicide

  305. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn starts at the 25. Fake, keeper, will be on the loose, fumble! Who got it back? I think that was Louis!

  306. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    O M G

  307. CapnVegetto says:

    Wow. Lucky.

  308. aubb says:

    i cant believe this…is there really a hex?

  309. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason up the gut, for nine!

  310. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 1. Mason up the gut again, first down at the 35 of Arkansas.

  311. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason off the right, and he’s down to the 26!

  312. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers have 2nd and 1. Here’s another give to Mason, will be close. Don’t think he got it.

  313. tigerpaw75 says:

    If we can score here, we burn clock, give the defense a blow, and get the points back

  314. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and inches. Heavy set. Keeper, Marshall will juke to the 11!

  315. tigerpaw75 says:

    Marshall runs so smoothly…

  316. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. At the 11. Marshall, will give to Mason, stopped at the ten.

  317. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    If we score, maybe we should onside kick!

  318. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9. Here’s a give, Mason will power to the six.

  319. broken_towel broken_towel says:

    I see Arky hands on Auburn facemasks nearly every play

    3rd and 4 – what do we do/

  321. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 4 Tigers. Clock running under 11 minutes, and they call time just before the play clock runs out.

  322. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Did we really just take a delay of game??

  323. tigerpaw75 says:

    did we get the timeout before the DOG?

  324. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..It appears Auburn may be shafted on that play, again. Officicals were marking off a delay of game, AND taking an Auburn timeout off the board. Hmmm.

  325. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I sure would like to see Uzomah get a chance to make a play here.

    You know they are buying run all day long.

  326. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And yes, both a delay, and the timeout charged, too.

  327. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    3rd and ten. Draw to Mason, will dive…. SCORESSSSSS!

  328. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..TAKE THAT, REFS!

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      I hope losing that TO doesn’t come back to bite us.

    eat it pigs!

  330. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Man, that was impressive…..no way that should have worked.

    • AETiger AETiger says:

      you got that right. I’ve said it all season & I’ll say it again, Mason = BEAST

  331. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..A Smoke Draw, and Auburn silences the crowd! Parkey is up and good, and with 10:17 left, Auburn takes a 35-17 lead!

  332. AETiger AETiger says:

    Tre Mason just saved our Bacon. How the hell does the “offensive genius have a delay of game there? Come on Gus, I’m lovin’ it; but you gotta pay attention to fundamentals.

  333. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Maybe I should stop dogging Pat Dye for those third and ten draw plays. Sure worked great, there!

  334. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason with a buck 63 on the night. Has taken it on his shoulders, this game.

  335. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey will boot it way deep, kneed, and a touchback.

  336. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Draw to Williams, and Auburn will snow him under for nothing!

  337. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10, will fire to Herndon, Mincy on the stop, about 7.

  338. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Shotgun, Allen will take off, and has the first down at the 36.

  339. CapnVegetto says:

    Tre Mason is the lone bright spot in this game. He is the ONLY reason we are winning.

  340. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Allen running again, picks up maybe one out of bounds.

  341. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    2nd and 9 Allen to throw, and it will be tipped at the line and incomplete.

  342. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 9. Allen will take, and will fire over the middle, caught short by Herndon on the slant, a yard short.

  343. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Throwing on 4th down, Herdon has room, and is down to the Auburn 32. Flag, another pick!

  344. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Replay 4th down, will the punt team come in, 4th and 16?

  345. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s the punt, taken by Davis at the Auburn 23, battles up to the 33.

  346. tigerpaw75 says:

    That was a bad call in Auburn’s favor – where was the OPI?

  347. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..7:17 remains in the game, and Auburn leads 35-17. The Tigers have the ball.

  348. CapnVegetto says:

    ………..and for the 8,234,543,845th time, the Audi diesel commercial.

  349. AUcideng42 AUcideng42 says:

    Feeling better about the W thanks to Mason. Still, our defense must be gassed. The fact we have the lead with the TOP diff is just damn lucky if you ask me. Wish our D didn’t look so vulnerable against the run…

  350. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn leads by 18 right now. Auburn’s biggest ever win over Arkansas was in 2010, in a 65-43 scorefest. A score on this drive, and a defensive stop would give Auburn a 25 point win…

  351. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Mason up the gut, got about four.

  352. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Letting it run. 2nd and 6. Here’s Mason, not much.

  353. CapnVegetto says:

    Time to get conservative. WTG Gus.

  354. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and long. Here’s Marshall, will check, give to Mason, to the 39, 5 yards short. Clock will run down to about 5 minutes.

  355. CapnVegetto says:

    DAMMIT GUS. WAY TO NOT EVEN TRY TO GET A MF FIRST DOWN!!!!!!!!!

    • AETiger AETiger says:

      Exclude the MF & my wife just said the same thing.

      • CapnVegetto says:

        I’m glad my 4 year old isn’t here. She’d have learned some nice new words to take to preschool

  356. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Steven Clark, to the sky, Herndon will fair catch at the 18. 43 yards.

  357. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers looking to just run out the clock. We wanted a blow-out, but I like Gus taking the high road. We’ve gotten some folks banged up tonight. It’s best to just get out of Fayette-nam with a win.

    • CapnVegetto says:

      I don’t care if they score again. BUT STOP GIVING THEM THE DAMN BALL. the defense is gassed and the offense needs to lose this out. This should be a win, but it was a piss poor game. We play like this against TN or GA, we lose. This was a horrible regression.

  358. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Razorbacks with the ball. Shotgun. Allen will fire on the slant to Herndon, and 17 more yards.

  359. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Draw to Collins, and nice to see McKinzy back in there! A loss!

  360. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Allen will run right, will throw it away on 2nd down.

  361. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carl Lawson down, I think he got hit in the ribs, and the wind got knocked out of him.

  362. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 13 Razorbacks. We’ve got not only injured Auburn folks, but an official hurt as well. Brutal game.

  363. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Ken Williamson takes over as head ref. Could do no worse. Low snap, and Dee Ford loose on the same play is bad news, and a big sack for Auburn!

  364. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Irwin will shank one, only to the Auburn 48.

  365. CapnVegetto says:

    Ok Gus. Run it up the freaking middle 3 times and punt.

    ?!$&!&@&$!?$&@!!?!$!!!!

  366. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Artis Payne checks in. Tigers will give it to him, and nothing doing with about 3:30 left.

  367. CapnVegetto says:

    1

  368. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9, swing pass to Louis, will pick up two to the 46.

  369. CapnVegetto says:

    2. Sort of. Conservative pass

  370. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Third and 8. Tigers will give to Payne, will power to the 44, 3 yards short.

  371. CapnVegetto says:

    3……punt.

  372. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will actually take a delay of game, with 1:10 left in this game.

  373. AETiger AETiger says:

    I have to give Bilemia props, did not use his three TOs.

  374. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clark will punt, and this hits at the one, and will roll dead back out at the five! Wow.

  375. CapnVegetto says:

    1damn ugly win. But a win. Good job to Super Tre. He is our hero tonight.

  376. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give Williams, will fight out over the 20, and finally chased down at the 26.

  377. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Clock stops to move the chains, Collins up the gut, fumble? And Wright has it!

  378. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Uh-oh. Ford is down, cramps?

  379. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..WHY was Ford out there in trash-time? And Collins, Arky’s best player has an ankle injury. Dumb decisions on both sides.

  380. CapnVegetto says:

    Mark my words. Arky will not suck for long. They need a QB and a few pieces but they will get better.

  381. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Both injured players walk off. Good. Marshall takes a knee, and this one is over. Auburn wins, 35-17! War Eagle!

    This coaching staff is the real deal. Keep them together as long as we can!

    WDE!

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      I dunno about that….Tre Mason and the O-Line won this game…..the coaching was pretty poor in my opinion.
      Arky ran ALL OVER us and was at 75% on 3rd downs up until the end of the game.
      Play calling was horrific and predictable…..and we got nailed for DOG inside the freakin’ 5. That’s inexcusable on Gus and Lashlee.

      • Third Generation Tiger Third Generation Tiger says:

        The penalty was dumb but besides that Auburn won a SEC road game using a very very conservative gameplan on offense and defense. Nothing fancy just the basics.

  384. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Not a real cheery handshake at the end. Still, we will take an 18-point win in Fayetteville any time! Did you know that it’s the biggest in Auburn history? Previous high was 17 in 2005.

  385. tigertracker says:

    Wish the game looked more like the score. Offense quietly scores 35. D gets eaten up but only allows 17. Dumb early calls by bielema. Moving on to rocky top. The road warriors are coming.

  386. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Mr. ToTM said I was in rare form tonight…..I believe him.

    Another auburn victory. Keep going boys. This is turning into an AUsome season. Also, good job to everyone for ignoring our resident troll capn for the most part.

    I hope Gus told him to jump off a bridge at the handshake.

    War Eagle

  390. wpleagle says:

    Whew! As much as I dislike the way our defense played tonight, give credit to Arky. They used the bye week to advantage and played some pretty damn tough, hardnosed football. I’m not a sunshine pumper, and I thought the 60 -10 predictions some of us were making during the week were stupid, but in spite of a lot of problems on defense, it’s a win. WIN. In FAYETTEVILLE. That would not have happened two years ago, much less last year.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      Agreed. Although, according to Bret, they’ve been preparing for this since spring practice.

  391. restless6 says:

    Watching a game with the Capn would be punishment.

    What a miserable dude.

  392. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..It’s been a fun year, even if this was more of a nail biter than we wanted. Really, look at it this way. They were never within ten points after the 2nd quarter. I’ve had fun with my spring-summer predictions. Had an awful year last year, but I’ve done better, this year. Did you know that I had this game pegged as a 37-20 Auburn win, way back in June?

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      I believe it. For serious

    • Third Generation Tiger Third Generation Tiger says:

      Acid – This game was never in doubt.

      • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

        I was stressed. I was yelling at the TV in ways that I had not since like 2011. Whoa. That’s actually kinda big.

        • tigertracker says:

          Even when we had penalties we responded. Several times over the last few games we have a “drive killing penalty” but we still score. The one play mantra is working. Tip of the hat to mason. Hard running on 32 carries I believe. 168yds and career high 4 TDs!

  393. mvhcpa says:

    Hey folks,

    I just got through reading the play-by-play (at Mother-in-Laws B’day, so couldn’t watch), and the offense looked great, but that kind of D is NOT going to cut it against GA and AL (and maybe not even TN). I hope THIS kind of bend-not-break isn’t our official philosophy on defense.

    Michael Val
    (who would have been happy with a 28-27 win today, but thought we had better win 42-10 to be safe in saying that we had the kind of team we thought we had after the aTm game)

  394. AUcideng42 AUcideng42 says:

    WOW! That was probably the most uncomfortable 18 point win I can remember. Its funny thinking back on it… I know Aub had a double-digit lead most of the game, but all I can remember is getting gashed by ARK most of the game. I wanted us to stomp Beliema’s team in the dirt, but they looked like the more physical squad (which worries me for future games against them if they get a few more playmakers). I’ll take the win! The Tigers have officially met my win total for the year with 8 wins (and I included the bowl in that total). WAR EAGLE, but I’m officially scared of the TENN o-line and receivers.

  395. AUcideng42 AUcideng42 says:

    Oh yeah forgot to mention. The best part of the game… Tre Mason is a MAN! That guy is FUN to watch.

  396. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    The Good: Tre F’n Mason, the five bulldozers in front of Mason and Marshall, we took Arkys best shot with all of their trick plays on their home field and won going away.

    The Bad: The D, the tackling, lane discipline, 3rd down conversions by Arky, The playcalling about as vanilla as it gets (luckily we didn’t need anything fancy) and Mason bailed them out time and again. DOG inside the 5 yard line.

    My takeaway? A win, is a win…especially on the road. The defense looked bad, but I’ll give the Arky players some credit, they have some talented offensive players especially at running back and executed well enough that they deserved a better fate. That being said, our defense made some plays themselves and took care of business when it counted early in the game. The problem is we are going to face just as good or better the next three weeks….and much better defenses.
    I wouldn’t expect this effort to win any of the games going forward but I know that just because the D stunk tonight, doesn’t mean they will stink next week. Just keep playing hard and good things will happen. The good news is, I see them playing hard every down.

  397. CapnVegetto says:

    There is going to be a scathing column written about this. Worst coaching I’ve seen from this staff. Lack of discipline. Terrible tackling. Lousy gap discipline. I don’t believe I’ve ever been so po’d after a double digit win. We didn’t beat arky. They beat themselves.

  398. tigertracker says:

    It’s impossible to keep the guys performing at top flight level for an entire season. In spite of my hopes of a blowout, this was our belated tamu hangover game apparently. Got that monkey off our back with room to spare. Did look like we regressed this week, but maybe just how Gus wants it. In preseason I didn’t think we could complain about how we got Ws. Just that we got them. So I won’t. War eagle!
