Rope the Razorbacks! (Auburn vs. Arkansas Open Thread)
Tigers need to apply the heat!
War Eagle, everybody! Tonight, the Auburn Tigers host the Arkansas Razorbacks in Jordan-Hare Stadium. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses and looking to redeem their respective seasons. For Auburn, it’s a week to recover from a soul-sapping home loss to LSU. For Arkansas, it’s an opportunity to shake off bad losses to a couple of Group of Five teams. However, at this time Arkansas is undefeated in the SEC, and Auburn is not.
This game has been shunted all the way down to last place on the day and will not kick off till 6:30 PM Central time on the SEC Network. I think Auburn attendees at this game will be grateful for the evening kickoff time. It has been a pretty hot and miserable September in this state, featuring some of the hottest temps of the summer. Strange year.
At kickoff for this one, temperatures should be around 86°F, falling to near 80° when this one ends around 10:30 PM. It should be partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower. Near the end of the game, fans on the west side of the stadium should be treated to the rise of a nearly full Corn Moon over the east stands. Hopefully, Auburn will have ground the Hogs into paste by then!
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will be at the keyboard for my usual play by play, although I will be operating remotely at a social event on my Thinkpad, and glomming off the wifi there. A lot of my speed cheats won’t work in that environment. Expect less detail and some dropouts, too. Hopefully Auburn runs this score up so quickly that the drama won’t matter. War Eagle! And let’s beat those Hogs!
…..I’ll be back for a hopefully more coherent thread next week, against Southern Miss. War Eagle, everybody! My time is up, I thank you for yours.
…..LSU had a bit of a hangover, as well, in a 38-21 win over La. Tech.
…..A win is a win. Hopefully, this is kind of a reaction to the physical war, last weekend, and things will pick up. Auburn special teams played really well, aside from missed field goals from long range.
War eagle! Glad to get a win.
war eagle, errybody

Is Gus trying to keep the score down?
…..Auburn has just 160 offensive yards, on the day. 109 through the air.
Our “one of the best in the country” DL has zero sacks against the worst OL in the SEC.
JS not confident
our OL is making arky’s d-line look as good as clemson.

…..Fake, Stidham, not much.
…..Bower in to punt. Davis deep. Davis will let it go out at the Auburn 45.
seems like it’s all on the OL today. they can’t block the run, and cant pass protect either. stidham won’t have time to throw downfield, so every play is mostly a dink and dunk pass.
let us see some dang offense
The offense is just putrid
…..Storey on the QB draw, did not make it!
…..Does the offense look as inept, in person, as it does on the small screen?
So much for us beating Arkansas by 50 like I told everyone

Hey guys, just checking in
why do we call time out?
…..3rd and a yard, and whistles. Auburn called timeout.

….2nd and 9. Pitch, and Whaley gets CLOCKED!
….Arkansas from the 25. Give, a yard and that’s all.
IGGY…………….. is easier
…..Last KR td for Auburn.
Can we really blow out an SEC West team while playing this badly on offense? Is that possible? If you could add on that defensive TD before half it would be really ugly with less than 200 yards of total offense.
…..Carlson boots another touchback!
…..Arkansas worked SO hard! Two timeouts, 4th down conversion, and they got a field goal! And then Igbinoghene torches them!
ALL THE WAYYYYYYY

special teams is going to win this game single-handedly.
Good Lord this team has so much speed. NB just left everyone.

…..Igbinoghene took one to the house!
…..We have 9:19 left in the 3rd, Igbinoghene at the 2, and he’s gone!!!!!
…..Arkansas cuts the Auburn lead to 17-3.
I dont think the AU fans believe that the LSU loss took away all this teams goals, but they sure are playing like they believe that. They just look emotioness.
I dont think the AU fans believe that the LSU loss took away all this teams goals, but they sure are playing like they believe that. They just look emotioness.
…..4th and 7, and Limpert will come in for a 29 yard attempt, and it’s good.
…..Storey has 3rd and 11. He’ll take, and run around, gets down to the ten.
Agree – where is that big defensive line?
…..We have 10:01 left in the 3rd quarter, with Auburn leading 17-0.
That Ark QB coming off the bench just showed more fire than anyone I’ve seen on AUs team.
…..3rd and 11. Arkansas burns another timeout!
…..2nd and 11. Storey to throw, lobs one, incomplete for Woods!
…..1st and 10. Boyd again, dumped for a loss!

“Commit to the run” 3 straight passes, punt.
Spot it at the Arky 21.

…..In comes Siposs. Will slice this one, taken by Jackson at the 20, gets out to the 35, but a flag.
…..3rd and 6, possession play. Under center? Rolling right, throwback, Martin, won’t get there at the 33.
…..2nd and 13. Screen to Davis, got about 7.
….And the second half is underway. Stidham in the gun. Swing pass to Kam Martin, to the 22, lost three.
Still a horrible call
…..Arkansas kicks off, touchback. Connor Limpert.
Talking heads say “offense at its best” oy!
bookstore has the leg; but bad aim
…..And on the second block, Arkansas didn’t try to find the ball, and K. J. Britt was able to walk over, pick it up and get nine more yards.
…..Today, they’ve had 2 blocked punts, where no one blocked Jordyn Peters.
…..You’d think Arkansas would work on their punt team after last week’s embarrassing fake fair catch, but no.
stats not good for our offense
a made up call
…..Both kicks were from 50+, for one thing.
…..Yeah, Auburn got robbed of 7 points on that one.
What’s up with Anders?
Ref blew that
That block in the back by #95 is bs
…..It is halftime, with Auburn leading 17-0.
….Carlson from 51 yards. Liner, hooked off to the left. No good.
…..Javaris Davis scored, but an illegal block. Arkansas will have to take the penalty, and Auburn will get a chance to kick a field goal.
…..What’s the call?
…..Block in the back, declined, and time is out.
…..Storey takes, and lobs it up, picked off. Ryan Davis, dodges, and he’s going to go to the one of Arkansas! Flag down…
…..18 seconds left in the half, 3rd and 10 at midfield for Arkansas. Time to take a deep shot? Or a medium dump to get in field goal range?
…..Keeper, and Storey gets only to midfield. Will call time.
Two timeouts remain for the Razorbacks.
…..Spikes it, with 24 seconds left.
…Give Whaley, has a lot of room, up to the 49.
…..Arkansas hands it off for 9, and calls time with 37 seconds left in the half. At the Arkansas 34.
Looks like Shawn White running around !!!!!
Great job by Stidham scrambling to the end zone- war Eagle!
…..Had to step away for a minute, and Stidham scores on a keeper. Auburn is now up, 17-0. Both touchdowns set up by Arkansas errors on punt teams.
Hit the fade vs Wash and yet it’s not in the playbook anymore
O line losing battle of trenches
…..Half the distance, and automatic first down.
We have redzone issues.
…..Stidham will be flushed, and facemasked down!
…..3rd and goal at the 9.
…..Give to Schwartz, lost a yard to the nine.
…..No, to the 8.
Kick the 3 pointer now , maybe d get it back again
…..Draw to Asa Martin, to the 13.
…..Makes it first and goal at the 14.
…..Delay of game. Wow.
…..Two backs, and whistles.
…..Peters again, got a piece of that ball!
……Auburn goes after it, tipped, and picked up at the 20, Britt takes it out at the 10 of Arkansas!
…..Auburn should decline this one, and force Bower to punt.
holding on Arkansas!
…..3rd and 7. Storey with time, throws incomplete, and a flag.
Run up the Gus hasn’t worked
…..Screen to Whaley, to the 12.
Did he not learn in Lsu game
Brilliant play call – TO for that?
Omg … take points in first half
….Whitlow driven back, ball goes over.
Still look confused on o
…..4th and 1, at the Arkansas 8 yard line, with under 5 minutes left in the half. Auburn leads, 10-0.
…..4th and 1 at the 8. Stidham checking off. Freeze play? Timeout called.
…..3rd and 3. Here’s a fake, Stidham will dump to Davis, and he’s close to the stake, short.
…..2nd and 10. Quick screen to Ryan Davis, down to the 10.
….Fires to Schwartz, dropped this pass.
….Picks up 42!
…..2nd and 6. Screen to Schwartz, and he’s up the field!
….Stidham to throw, to Schwartz, up to the 40 on the quick hitter.
…..3rd and 2 for Auburn, possession play. CHanging the play. Give Whitlow, patient, gets the first down!
….2nd and 5. Fake, keeper, will get 3.
…..1st and 10 Tigers. Give to Kam Martin, out to the 29.
I agree AUNation.
I expected to see a fiery team ready to correct last week. I see a team that doesn’t look like they care right now.
This Ark team is bottom of the SEC in sacks allowed. We should be eating him alive. Just looks like all our players on both O and D line are going through the motions.
Hopefully Chip can put together first down or two this time.
….Bower punts, Davis will fair catch at the 24. 7:59 left in the half.
…..Safety blitz from Sherwood, on that hit.
…..Brings up 3rd and 4. Storey will roll, hit, ball flutters harmlessly to the turf!
…..2nd and 10. Storey swings it to Boyd, will be pushed out at the 40.
…..New set of downs. Storey will scramble, and hit while throwing, got it away incomplete.
Chip needs to hit reset button!
…..2nd and 3. Keeper Storey, across the 30.
I was hoping to see more passion by the tigers tonight.
…..1st and 10 Arkansas, pitch to Boyd to the short side, got 2
…..Auburn is averaging just 2.4 yards per carry, and 4.3 yards per pass, thus far. Stidham is just 3 of 6 passing, all screens.
Ryan Davis looks like our milk cow , get it to him on first
Quick throws needed
….TV timeout, with 10:06 left in the half, Auburn leads Arkansas 10-0.
…..Siposs in to punt. Hits at the 25, rolls to the 20.
O Line not looking so good – getting manhandled
…..3rd and 16. Trips right. Stidham zips it inside to Ryan Davis, and he’s up near the first down, just a couple of feet short!
…..2nd and 15. Stidham running for his life, loses a yard more.
Seems we’re pass first , need to pass quick on sides instead of mid deep on first
….Fake, Stidham forced to scramble, sacked on a corner blitz.
…..With 11:39 left in the half, Auburn takes over at the 30.
…..Arkansas is sending 1 more man than Auburn can block, up front. And then Auburn loses a battle or two, and it’s ugly in the backfield.
Qb needs to get on fire!
Auburn needs a good drive!
…..Bower in to punt. Will boot it, fair caught by Ryan Davis at the 29.
….3rd and 19. Storey takes the snap, hit, threw it away!
…..2nd and 25. Storey will have time, fires to Hayden, up to the 27.
…..1st and 20. Give to Hayden, lost yardage!
Agree with Acid 3rd down D is spotty thus far!
…..Give for about 3, flags will kill this one.
Defense is sleeping
…..3rd and 14 at the 21. Storey will go trips left. Takes, and Storey gets rid of it across the middle to Jones, got the first down.
Malzahn hasn’t done a good job recruiting the past couple of years, and it’s showing at the RB position
…..Oh, blow it dead! iLLEGAL formation, wipes that scramble out!
……3rd and 9. Storey will roll out, lost contain, all the way out to the Auburn 41.
All the running backs are to small for the power up the middle were used to.
…..Give to Whaley, got about a yard to the 26.
…..Fortunately, Arkansas punt coverage is poor.
…..Also, Auburn is having trouble getting off the field on 3rd down, again this week.
Offense is crippled without a premier back.
….The problem is that Auburn is getting whipped up front, on the offensive line, thus far.
….2nd and 10. The first quarter ends, with Auburn leading, 10-0.
I dont understand it. Why do we always try to get so cute when inside the 20? Just keep doing what got you down there!
…..Screen to Jones, and POPPED at the line, no gain!
Skeptical is correct.
…..Another touchback for Carlson, on the kickoff.
Offense looks skeptical . No rhythm ar all
Another Malzahn special in the red zone
…..I think you are right.
Ark was offsides on the 3rd down blitz.
…..Auburn 10, Arkansas 0, with 21 seconds left in the first quarter.
…..Anders Carlson in. Kick is good!
…..3rd and goal. Stidham will take, and a blitz. Flushed, will go out the one.
Another fg attempt
…..Fake, floating it too far for Seth Williams.
OL looks lost with new center.
…..Bad blocking assignment.
…..Half-huddle, under center. Give Whitlow, dumped for a big loss.
…..Turnovers have been costly for the Hogs, this year.
….Daniel Thomas rumbles down to the 2 yard line, with the fumble!
…..Give to Hayden, lost the ball!
…..Anders Carlson in, to attempt from 54. Hooked it.
…..3rd and 4 for Auburn. Stidham will dump it too low for Whitlow. Poor, poor blocking.
…..2nd and 8. Under center. Give to Schwartz, tripped at the 36.
….Give Martin, will get only a couple to the 40.
…..Fake, screen to Ryan Davis, to the Arkansas 42!
…..It rolls to the Auburn 45.

…..3rd and 5 coming. Storey will go empty. Steps up, fires, batted away, Dean!
….2nd and 11. Storey will dump to Whaley, out to the 33.
…..Illegal substitution, on Arkansas!
…..1st and 10 Arkansas. Give Whaley, will push to the 31.
…..Jamel Dean back on the field for Auburn.
…..Not sure if that 3rd down misconnection was on Stidham, or Slayton. Slayton found the hole in the zone coverage, and sat down, while Stidham may have thought he was going to continue running across the middle.
…..9 iron shot, fair caught at the 28 of Arkansas. 46 yards.
…..In comes Arryn Siposs to punt.
….Brings up 3rd and 7. Stidham has time, will throw badly again, and missed Slayton.

…..2nd and 14 Razorbacks. Two backs. Storey will give to Boyd, to the 22.
Well in saying that we should blitz, you can’t just all run passed him…
…..2nd and 9. Flag, 12 men on the field for Arkansas!
…..Give Boyd, got to the 19.
…..Storey with trips right. Steps up, will find a wide open Colin Jackson, down at the Auburn 25.
….3rd and 10. Time for Auburn to get off the field!
…..2nd and 10. Boyd in motion. Storey flips it to him, and dropped.
…..At the Arkansas 48. Time, will go deep, Woods can’t get it. Lots of hand-checks, no call.
….New set of downs. Throws quickly to Cornelius, across midfield.
…..3rd and 2, possession play. 4 wides. Storey fires over the middle, Cornelius has it on the square in.
…..2nd and 2. Give Hayden, cut down at the 32!
…..Give up the gut, Hayden gets about 8 on the counter.
…..Arkansas will start at the 25.
…..Carlson will boot it, 5 yards deep, out of the endzone on the bounce.
Hustle and effort penalties dont bother me nearly as bad as not paying attention penalties.
…..Backs up the spot. Carlson is up and good, anyway. With 10:36 left in the first period, Auburn leads, 7-0!
…..Auburn runs the Batman formation, slowly, and gets a delay of game flag.
…..First and goal. Trips left. Give Whitlow, WALKS IN!
…..Tigers have first and goal, with 10:40 left in the first quarter, and burns a timeout.
…..Missed facemask call.
…..3rd and short, Keeper, got inside the five, lost his helmet?
…..2nd and 6. Stidham will give to Whitlow, fights through the pile, to the seven!
Why is it such a huge story that JS got engaged? I mean I’m proud for the kid, but why does that keep getting mentioned?
….Give Whitlow, cuts back, to the 11.
…..3rd and a yard. Wildcat, Whitlow, fakes, will get flipped at the 15, first down!
….Give Martin, to the 19.
……Here’s a pitch to Kam Martin, will be put down after a seven yard gain.
…..So, Arkansas gives it back, 1st and 10 Auburn.
…..1st and 15 for Auburn. D-jumps, Stidham gets chased, and throws it away.
…..Flags, flags, flags.
…..Ineligible receiver downfield, on Driscoll.
…..Fake, and has to throw it away. Flag?
…..Sideline warning on Auburn. Spot the ball at the 27 of Arkansas.
…..And now a late flag.
Kid almost threw a pick on his first pass. We have got to keep him rattled.
….Ryan Davis, got back to the Arky 35!
…..Razorbacks will punt from the 40. Bower, short punt, Davis gets loose!
…..3rd and 8, possession play. Hit, thrown away!
….That was your all-out blitz.
…..Checking off, on 2nd and 8. Storey will flip it out, and dropped by Whaley.
….From the 38, Whaley is dumped after 2.
…..Auburn is offsides. Gave up the first down.
…..Brings up 3rd and short.
…..2nd and 8. To throw, Patton, pulls it in, wrestling it away from D. Thomas.
…..Razorbacks setting up. Give Whaley up the gut, not much. A couple.
…..Anders Carlson will kick this one off! Fair caught, a yard deep in the end zone.
Sure you’ll get burned some just like bama does from time to time, but they also eat teams alive with sacks and forced TOs.
…..Texas is a Jeckyll and Hyde team, for sure.
…..Auburn wins the toss, and defers.
Can’t believe Tx beat TCU
…..The worry with blitzing is giving up a big play. However, Auburn was back in Tampa-Two last week, and still gave up a 79 yard TD.
I was watching the UA and TAMU game. TAMU had open receivers all over the field, but he had a blitzing LB, safety, or CB in his face so fast it made no difference. I want to see some aggression tonight out of Steele.
…..Halftime show is over, as Tiger Rag is blasted off the field!
Supposed to switch to us at 6:38 with current game going to an alternate.
I’m going to try to whine less today. War Eagle.
What channel? Vandy is still on.
…..The eagle has landed! This game is about 10 minutes away.
…..Unfortunately, all a quarterback has to do right now, is take a 5 step drop, and just lob it up the sideline. Our guys will grab the receiver and get a flag. Watch for Arky to try that.
I dont care who is back at QB, I hope Steele unleashes the dogs and we have about 12 sacks. Really need this game to set a tone. If we come out flat and sleepwalk through this one my optimism will be gone.
Do you expect much out of Storey?
…..Checking the starting lineups… Nick Brahms will replace Kaleb Kim at center. The departed Nate Craig-Myers is being replaced by Seth Williams. No word yet, on tight end Jalen Harris’ replacement.
Watching the game tonight at Fitzgerald’s with the raucous Charlotte Auburn Club – War Eagle!
……SEC games in progress are pretty much decided, at this point. Alabama leads Texas A&M 45-16, at the end of the 3rd, and has the ball back again. South Carolina has a 30-14 lead over Vanderbilt, late in the 3rd.
…..Alabama drives the length of the field in big chunks, and now has a 38-13 lead over Texas A&M, early in the 3rd quarter. Ole Miss 38, Kent State 17, final.
…..Ole Miss 38, Kent State 17, late.
…..Alabama leads Texas A&M 31-13, second half underway.
…..It is halftime in Nashville. South Carolina leads Vanderbilt, 20-14.
…..Woody is also the top ground option for Kent State, as he has rushed 18 times for 53 yards, and a touchdown.
…..Woody Barrett Watch… Right now, he’s 24 of 42 attempts, for 224 yards, no TDs, one pick.
…..USCe leads 17-14, late in the third quarter over the Commodores, in Nashville.
…..I suppose the biggest surprise of the SEC afternoon is Vandy hanging around with South Carolina. I had hoped this would be an interesting game, but often the Commodores fall flat after a big game the week before.
…..Checking in! Remote connection issues solved!
Beautiful run by Mond to the bama 15 or so.
And TAMU immediately shoots themselves squarely in the foot.
And Old Mess is pulling away. Kent State is acquitting itself well, but the Group of Five guys just don’t have the depth.
And the Geek hits ‘nother one for ugga. Love those black rims.
I would love to see Cousin Clem trip up just because I dont think their remaining schedule is tough enough for them to recover and be in the playoff talk again. Mizz had a legitimate shot in that game, but too many mistakes. Scoop and score and blocked punt doomed them.
Darned if you’re not right. Mr. Barrett’s name was a total nonreact for me.
On other subjects, although I’ve not paid much attention to the second half after a sloppy first half, it looks as if Georgia’s putting away Mizzou. 11 point lead with under 5 minutes to go.
Now, since I have GA Tech relatives, wonder if they can live up to Corso’s upset pick on Game Day. Personally, I think Country Clem wipes up the field with the Bumble Bees.
I think the intended conversation is the reason Acid puts these streams up live early in the day. And as for being an Auburn blog, yes, I do realize that. That’s the main reason I was referencing a former Auburn player. Good conversation could make a long afternoon a little more bearable you know.
What’s to react to? This is an AU blog, and Ole Miss ain’t playing anybody, although it seems to be a pretty good game. 4-point differential in the 3rd quarter.
Not being smarmy, but it’s a long, boring afternoon!
It appears my fine commentary is wasted on an empty room.
OMs defense is continuing to show that they are garbage, but Woody Barrett is entertaining to watch.
It was kind of funny though that after the sun dropped, the entire field was in the shade except LSUs sideline. They were all still standing in the heat for at least 20 more minutes after our players were in the shade. Didn’t seem to matter much.
I was in JH last week and I heard someone say it was one of the hottest games on record in Auburn. Until the sun dropped behind the stands it was miserable. After the sun dropped behind the stands the outcome was miserable…
Tigers need to apply the heat indeed. Mother Nature certainly is! Man, it is HOT on the Plains today!
If we don’t get 5-6 sacks today I will be sorely disappointed.
…..And we are live! My weather correspondent tells me that the chance for rain in this game is so small, it is not really worth mentioning.
About Acid Reign:.....Still making noise after all these years! Lifetime slacker, dreamer, and miscreant with a knack for calculation. I was born in the United State of Texas, but have spent the majority of my years here amongst the shaded hills of the Tragic City, enjoying glorious smog-enhanced sunsets. In a troubled county, I live in a little slice of paradise between the ridges of Red and Shades Mountains. I've been an obsessive Auburn football follower since the Punt-Bama-Punt days, and have seen a lot of great football on the Plains. This lazy shirker finally learned the value of hard work and persistence from the fine folks in Auburn, and enjoys his return visits immensely! Hobbies include guitar-playing (or really just making loud and weird noise on any sort of instrument or object), cooking, computers, tennis, and old-school pen and paper RPGs. I love getting together with a good drink, great family, and friends..... (Acid Reign is Track ’Em Tigers’ Senior Editor). View Profile →
