Smoke the Hogs! (Auburn vs. Arkansas open thread)

By on August 30th, 2014 in Football 441 Comments »
Razorback thread

Razorbacks try to circle the wagons before the slaughter.

     War Eagle, everybody! Today marks the 2014 season opener for the Auburn Tigers! Today, the Tigers take on the Arkansas Razorbacks, at 3:00 PM Central Time on the brand-spanking-new SEC Network. (channel 811 on my Charter dial, check your local listings.) For Auburn, expected to contend for the SEC Title once again, this is a must-win game. Arkansas comes in riding a 12-game SEC losing streak, and desperately hopes to turn around its fortunes.

     We’ve been waiting for another slack-jawed, arrogant outburst from Razorback coach Bret Bielema this week, but he’s been a bit more circumspect than in the past. Bielema seems confident, and expects to beat the Tigers. Meanwhile, Auburn coach Gus Malzhan has been steady as they come, and likely has a plan for everything that might happen.

     There was one late-breaking bit of news yesterday evening that is a boon to the team. Last year’s defensive MVP Robensen Therezie has been cleared to play, and will give the Tigers some badly needed depth at the Star position. While Therezie hasn’t had many reps in practice, he started all 14 regular season games last season, and played nearly every meaningful defensive snap. He may not play a lot today, but his availability is a great thing for the team to have.

     A couple of weeks ago, we were bemoaning the likely heat-stroke August afternoon weather. The forecast now is for mostly cloudy skies, and a 50/50 chance of thunderstorms. It won’t rain all game long, but a downpour is possible at any time. The sun could also break through, so bring both your poncho and the sunblock.

     As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be in during the day at times, and at the keyboard for a live play by play. This is it, folks! The SEC season-opener! If Auburn is to contend for titles this season, Arkansas must be beaten. Go, Tigers! Smash those Razorbacks!

    Aloha from Hawaii and war eagle. Here’s to another great season.

  2. wpleagle says:

    Saw a TAMU fan in the Atlanta airport last night, and he was just as amazed by their win over saccerlina as I was. Saccerlina just went way down on the threat-o-meter and TAMU went way up, IMHO. Hope the AU coaching staff use that game as a teaching tool: ARKY is to be taken as a serious opponent!!!!
    War Eagle. I’m ready.

    we are leaving MobTown in 30 minutes!!!. I just have to call my Razorback Son-in-law for the final bet amount!

    can’t wait ( my seats are covered _ just barely)

    War Eagle

    Track em tigers just like beagles!
    Give me hell you War Damn Eagles!!

    Happy game day everyone! May the defense be fast and smothering. And may the offense be quick, strong and productive. War Eagle!!

    AU 41 – Big Pig and Arkansas 3

  6. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    SEC network dialed in, beer in the fridge, no one to bother me during game…goosebumps starting to form…yep I am ready.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      I found a place to go watch the game! Ex-Mr. ToTM will take the boys! I’m so excited!!!

  7. GBAU83 says:

    Leaving for AU and JHS in less than an hour – ready to see some football. WAR EAGLE and beat those hogs!

  8. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    WARRRRRREAGLE! EVERYBODY !!!

    It’s great to have football back! It’s like Christmas in August!!!

    I can’t wait to see what we have in store for the pigs. I love when we start the season with a challenge….and I believe the Pigs will be. This is a perfect tuneup game for us because we will need to play well to win and their strengths match up pretty well with our strengths. It’s going to be important to establish the passing game to loosen up their D but if Johnson is the kind of QB we think he is, I don’t think it that will be an issue. I expect Gus to bomb the pigs a few times early in the game to get a quick and commanding lead and get the Pigs out of their gameplan. Play action will the be the Pigs biggest threat to us in the game so the quicker we can take that away from them the quicker we will put this game away. I have no doubt this will be a tight game if we don’t play very well. The Pigs have the talent to win, so we need to prove to Bert and the rest of Pig nation they just don’t measure up and take them to the smoker for a long hard days whooping!

  9. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    Lets put mamma hog Bert and the piglets back in their place! War Eagle!

  10. WarEagleAtlanta WarEagleAtlanta says:

    Pigs get fat, Hogs get slaughtered. How fitting today is international bacon day. WDE!

  11. Cole Locascio Cole Locascio says:

    Checking in on my way to Auburn. Hopefully it doesn’t rain too hard for ths game. War Eagle!

  12. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..War Eagle, and good morning! Can’t wait for this one. I’ve got coffee brewed, and I’m stoked!

  13. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Higher Ground Coffee scoreboard…

    ……Not much early SEC action this week. Kentucky leads UT Martin 7-0 late in the first quarter.

    ……Nationally, the Navy vs. Ohio State game is scoreless late in the first. The Buckeyes are struggling without Braxton Miller under center. I wonder if Urban Meyer will retire again this year?

  14. wde1988 wde1988 says:

    WAR EAGLE! Eat more pork. It’s mild meat.

    WDE

  15. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    2 more top 10 teams struggling today. OSU trails Navy 7-3 and UCLA only up 4 on UVA

  16. wpleagle says:

    Flipped to Kentucky – UT Martin. Auburn should see UT-Martin for copyright infringement – their unis are identical to AU road unis, except for helmet logo.

  17. wpleagle says:

    Oops – that should be sue.

  18. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn played ‘em for Homecoming back in 2008, and struggled. Kodi Burns started just taking the snap and running around, and Auburn pulled away in the 4th quarter, winning 37-20. Burns set a quarterback rushing yards record that was broken two years later by Cam Newton.

  19. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Reportedly, there was quite a downpour at Jordan-Hare Stadium about 45 minutes ago. I hope that’s it, for the afternoon.

  20. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Higher Ground Coffee scoreboard: Shocker at Legion Field! The UAB Blazers are trouncing Troy 38-10, late in the 3rd quarter! Go Blazers!

    …..Kentucky is curb-stomping the UT Martin Skyhawks, 52-0 at the end of the 3rd.

  21. AUTigerinBR says:

    Paul Finebaum is an ass. Just had to get that off my chest. Watch the clip of him at Auburn today.
    I’m nervous about this afternoon. We need to win big.
    War Eagle!

  22. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..A few upsets are brewing today. North Dakota State leads Iowa State 27-14 at the end of the 3rd.

    NC State trails Georgia Southern 20-10 midway through the 3rd.

    Ohio State is still struggling with Navy, leading just 20-14 at the end of the 3rd.

    Iowa leads Northern Iowa 24-23 early in the 4th quarter.

  23. rn4au rn4au says:

    ugh! Stuck at the hospital for rounds this weekend…and NO SEC NETWORK! What’s are girl to do? What’s wrong with these people…this is just life or death…Dont they know football is WWWAAYY MORE IMPORTANT!! LOL

  24. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..My sympathies. I’m going to be stuck at work for the K-State game, and hopefully that’s the only one, this year.

  25. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Former Auburn defensive coordinator Paul Rhodes is having a tough outing, today. Iowa State is getting rolled by North Dakota State, 34-14 with about 5 minutes left in the game. I’ve been watching that one on Fox Sports 1, and the Cyclones are just giving up huge chunks of yardage on the ground to a fairly basic I-formation team.

  26. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In the close B1G games, Ohio State is finally pulling away from Navy, leading 34-17 with 2 minutes left.

    Iowa is up 31-23 over Northern Iowa.

    It’s a final in Birmingham: UAB smacks Troy, 48-10. What in the world happened to Larry Blakney’s Trojans?

  27. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The hurry-up airraid is chewing up the Bama D. West Virginia is 2nd and goal at the Alabama 5 yard line!

  28. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And an overthrown fade route brings up 4th down.

  29. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The Mountaineers take a 3-0 lead over the Tide, with 10:58 left in the first. A good drive, but they didn’t execute inside the ten.

  30. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..With one minute left in the game, North Carolina has taken a 24-23 lead over Georgia Southern. Meanwhile, Bama’s offense takes the field for the first time this season.

  31. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Shotgun, and Sims hits Cooper for a big gain to midfield on the quick screen.

  32. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Sims looks on target on the short passing game.

  33. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 4, possession play. All day to throw, and Sims skips it off the turf to Cooper, 4th down. Cooper was WIDE open. Adam Griffith in the kick.

  34. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..No 109 yard return, this time. Griffith ties the game, 3-3 in the Georgia Dome.

  35. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Switching to Auburn, the fans in Jordan Hare Stadium pause for a moment of silence in memory of Phillip Lutzenkirchen.

  36. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..and David Langner.

  37. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here come the 2014 Auburn Tigers! War Eagle!

  38. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Man, I’m glad I’ve got the sound muted, and Stan and Rod on the radio. Calling this game on TV, Brent Musberger and Jesse Palmer. Yuck!

    …..Drinking game: How long till Musberger calls us the “War Eagles?”

  39. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will kick this one off to the Razorbacks to start.

  40. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Daniel Carlson is on the field for the kickoff, as Arkansas won the toss.

  41. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the boot by Carlson… and it is 3 yards deep, Marshall will bring it out, and he’s dumped at the 15!

  42. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….McKinzy on the stop!

  43. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Game clock malfunction, and we’ll wait.

  44. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10 Razorbacks. Wright and Adams will start at defensive end.

  45. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..They finally get the time correct, 14:52.

  46. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Allen takes, and he’ll give to Williams, not much!

  47. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Two tights. Quick slant, and Jones will knock it away! Almost intercepted

  48. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rf down. Pressure, and Allen is close on the scramble.

  49. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Did not make it!

  50. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….4th down.

  51. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Punt team in. Here’s the punt, and Bray will fair catch at the Auburn 25. 50 yard punt.

  52. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jeremy Johnson and the Tigers take the field on offense. Pistol set. Johnson takes, and he’ll give to CAP, and not much up the gut.

  53. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9. Rolling out, and will find Louis, and he’ll fall down short of the 30.

  54. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    35.

  55. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……3rd and 5. Johnson hits Coates, and that’s 13 yards!

  56. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….QUick give, CAP will power to midfield!

  57. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 3, CAP turns the corner, and he’s to the Arkansas 39, but a flag.

  58. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Holding, on Coates.

  59. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That will hurt.

  60. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 13, for Johnson. Give to Louis on the sweep, no gain.

  61. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Possession play for the Tigers. 3rd and 13. Screen to CAP, across midfield, and he’s close to the stake!

  62. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….FIrst down Tigers, but CAP is butted down for a loss.

  63. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 13. Here’s Johnson. He’ll fake, will hit Melvin Ray, and Ray IS GONE!!!!!!!!!!

  64. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    TOUCHDOOOOOOWWWWWN, AUBURN!

  65. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Corner blitz, threw over it over the corner, safety was shucked by Ray, and a score!

  66. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Daniel Carson scores his first career point, and Auburn is up 7-0 in the first quarter!

  67. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Jeremy Johnson looked really good throwing the ball, this drive. Arkansas corners are having problems staying with Auburn’s receivers.

  68. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carlson to kick off. This one is out of the end zone!

  69. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..9:37 left in the 1st quarter and the Razorbacks will start at the 25.

  70. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Toss sweep short side, and they’ll pick up seven yards.

  71. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and short. Allen will hand to Marshall, and he’s out to the 45. Mincy’s suspension ended the last play.

  72. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs, here’s a pitch to Collins, the cutback, and he’ll pick up about 20 yards.

  73. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the 35, up the gut to Collins, and AUburn is carved up badly. Whitehead on the stop at the 15.

  74. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..We’re getting the WHAM play every down. Give to Marshall again, and Justin Garrett will pop him at the line, and no gain!

  75. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Razorbacks. Here’s Allen, pressure, but he’ll hit Hunter Henry for the score.

  76. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..No one covered the tight end.

  77. broken_towel broken_towel says:

    I miss the days of mediocre offense and an oppressive defense…..

  78. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jon Henson will kick it up, and through with 6:44 left in the first. The game is tied at 7-all.

  79. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Arkansas just KILLED the Auburn D with wham plays, on that drive. They were leaving tackles unblocked on the line, and the tight ends were crashing in, and taking the tackles out from behind. Auburn’s gotta switch off, better than that!

  80. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….On the TD, there was evidently a miscommunication between Jonathan Mincy and whomever was the safety on that side. Mincy moved away from Henry with the motion man, and a safety should have picked up the tight end. Instead, both guys left the tight end.

  81. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Grant and Louis deep, and this one will be taken by Louis nine yards deep, touchback.

  82. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Here come the Tigers. Johnson to throw, and Williams has it for 19! Great catch!

  83. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..CAP gets maybe two up the gut on first down.

  84. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Here’s the half-huddle, and Johnson will operate from the shotgun, fake statue of lib, deep throw, and they mug Coates.

  85. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That will be 15 yards and a first down.

  86. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Under center, quick pitch, and CAP gets about 3. Good pursuit to the 37.

  87. uglyjoe says:

    I can’t stand Brent Musburger

  88. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7. Here’s Johnson in the pistol, Grant gets the give, and he’s got about 8!

  89. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs for the Tigers. Two tight ends. Play fake, and deep over the middle, Uzomah HAS IT, inside the five!

  90. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Did he stick that ball in the endzone?

  91. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….CAP up the gut, and he’s into the end zone!

  92. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….TOUCHDOWN< AUBURNNNN!

  93. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carlson will boot it up, and through! WIth 4:01 left in the first, Auburn leads, 14-7!

  94. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Checking the Higher Ground Coffee scoreboard, Alabama has taken a 10-3 lead on West Virginia in the Georgia Dome.

  95. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..As expected, Missouri is taking it to North Dakota State, 21-7 in the first quarter.

  96. WarEagleEngr says:

    Johnson is firing missiles.

  97. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carlson to kick it off. He’ll plant this ball near the wall, touchback again.

  98. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Razorbacks will start at the 25. Can Auburn contain the trap/wham plays?

  99. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Watch the middle of the line, and see if Arkansas continues this strategy.

  100. WarEagleEngr says:

    WVU showing some fight against Bama.

  101. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Brandon Allen will take the snap, and he’ll give on the delay to Marshall, and he powers for five.

  102. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. Allen will drop, fake, and he’s going long, and a dropped ball by Hatcher, beat Trovon Reed.

  103. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Wow, that might have been a score.

  104. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5. Arkansas will call time.

  105. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……I see no reason they have to throw, here. We aren’t holding them to less than 5 yards on the ground, and Ellis will likely bring lighter pass rushers in for this down.

  106. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Possession play for the Razorbacks. Allen will take, and he’ll will roll out, will be horsecollared down by Blackson, and it’s a first down, plus 15.

  107. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Facemask, and they’ll have it at midfield.

  108. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Offset I, give to Marshall, and AUburn has no answer up the gut. 11 yards.

  109. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tackles just ineffective in the middle.

  110. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I set, Marshall is stacked up, by Wright!

  111. broken_towel broken_towel says:

    Looking like an 8-5/9-4 team right now

  112. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Crashing the ends. Moncrief in for Ford in the secondary. Unbalanced line, quick screen, Hollister bumped out at the 35.

  113. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 6, possession play. Here’s pressure! Holsey will force Allen out short!

  114. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and 6, punt team in. Irwin Hill will kill it at at the three.

  115. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..CAP bashes out to the nine on first down!

  116. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Give to CAP, will get the stake, will be pulled down at the 16.

  117. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……New set of downs. Play fake, will hit Williams and he’s off to the races!

  118. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..PUlled down at the Arky 22!

  119. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give to CAP, will power down to the 15!

  120. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And that’s the end of the first quarter. Auburn leads, 14-7, and they are in the red zone again!

  121. WarEagleEngr says:

    Has Johnson missed a pass? Has he thrown an incompletion?

  122. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Johnson is 7 for 7, 186 yards.

  123. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here come the TIgers, draw to CAP, and he will go untouched! For the score, but a late flag…

  124. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Personal foul, facemask on Patrick Miller. Cancels the TD.

  125. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That is a drive killer, there.

  126. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Speed sweep to Grant, nothing doing.

  127. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 6 at the 18, and quick whistles. Clock malfunction again.

  128. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Johnson in the gun. WIll fire over the middle, Williams, and he DRAGGS his man, into the end zone!

  129. tigerpaw75 says:

    That was a terrible call…miller had his arm extended…did’t pull the guy toward him or change his direction due to the facemask…had CAP already scored?

  130. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..TOUCHDOWN, AUBURNNNNN!

  131. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s Carlson, and he’s up and good! Auburn leads, 21-7 early in the second quarter!

  132. tigerpaw75 says:

    thankfully doesn’t matter now

  133. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..On the penalty, Miller did have a hand on the facemask late in the run, but it didn’t look like a grab, to me. Bad call.

  134. wpleagle says:

    Who was the guy that Lou Gehrig replaced and never played again? Will Marshall even need to get in the game?

  135. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Arkansas is using a soft cushion zone and blitzing all three linebackers most downs. Johnson is carving them up with quick throws over the middle.

  136. tigerpaw75 says:

    Wally Pipp?

  137. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Johnson has 204 passing yards, and we’re not even 20 minutes into the game!

  138. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Carlson kicks off, and he actually kicked it all the way to the wall!

  139. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Razorbacks out there again on offense. Here’s Allen, play faking, and will hit Wilson on the drag route, and he’s got a first down at the 36.

  140. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Two tights. No, three. Give, bobbled exchange, and Collins loses a yard!

  141. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 11. Here’s a slot left, shotgun. Time, will fire deep, inside the Auburn 40, another blown coverage on Auburn. Jonathan Jones.

  142. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Auburn 39. Allen to throw, and Jones grabs his guy and draws a flag.

  143. WarEagleEngr says:

    By my count 4 different receivers have caught passes: Uzomah, Coates, Ray, Williams. (Did Bray get one?)

  144. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Back to back gifts by Jones.

  145. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FIrst and ten. Toss to the short side, and Williams get two.

  146. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Adams with the flattening tackle!

  147. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..PRessure, dumped off to Sprinkle, and he’s ahead for another first down.

  148. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Auburn 17. Here’s Allen, three tight ends. Will throw, and Derby wasn’t even covered. TOuchdown.

  149. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….The Auburn senior, Jermaine WHitehead lost him.

  150. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The PAT is up and good, and with 11:06 left in the half, Auburn still leads, 21-14.

  151. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I think Ellis Johnson needs to realize that tight ends are eligible receivers.

  152. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Whitehead is a converted corner. There’s no way a blocky B1G-type tight end should beat him deep!

  153. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Grant and Louis deep. Here’s the boot, and Louis has it at the ten. Will power out to the 27.

  154. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Huddle, shotgun. Quick screen to Louis, and that’s the first incompletion, dropped.

  155. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    We’ll the O is as advertised…..unfortunately the defense is just as bad.

    The line is getting no push up field and it’s showing up on the scoreboard.

  156. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Tigers. Give to CAP, finds a hole, and he’s close to the first down!

  157. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Second effort. Here’s CAP, and he’ll lose yardage.

  158. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Carlson in to punt.

  159. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Louis is not looking like he wants to stay in the WR rotation

    cAP is looking great

  160. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the boot, HAMMERED! Dean will field it at the 4 yard line, and goes down at the 7!

  161. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..59 yard punt! Now we see why Carlson won the job!

  162. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..With Arkansas trapped at the seven, it’s time for a stop. Please guys, cover the tight ends?

  163. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Annnnnnd that is why Carlson is punting

  164. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the scoreboard, West Virginia keeps pace, and is tied with Bama, 17-17

  165. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jumbo set. Draw play, all the way to the 15 for Marshall.

  166. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and short. Therezie checks in! Will give to Marshall, fumble! Arkansas gets it back, and that’s a first down.

  167. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Marshall stays down, and the medical staff stays in to look after the injured Razorback.

  168. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….Rudy Ford knocked the ball out, but the Razorbacks got on it. Marshall’s arm appears to be the issue.

  169. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Arkansas line is the real deal, they are pushing us around

  170. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Collins checks in, will get the give, picking his way, and AUburn just can’t tackle, and he’s out to the 37.

  171. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Allen will give to Collins, and another ten yard run. Frost missed a tackle.

  172. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here come the Hogs. Williams in at tailback, draw, and Williams is only ahead for three, FOrd on the stop.

  173. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Kris Frost doing his best jake holland impression

  174. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 7. Allen throws to WIlliams in the flat, and Reed has him down for nothing!

  175. tigerpaw75 says:

    trovon reed looked physical on that one

  176. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 7. Possession play. Allen will take, and he’s throwing over the middle, and a great catch by Demetrius Wilson.

  177. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……At the Auburn 35, and another wide open tight end, Derby to the Auburn 18.

  178. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn calls time. COVER THE TIGHT ENDS, PLEASE?

  179. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s where Tampa-two should be used. Make a stop on first down, then you have to make that QB think. AUburn is just crazy blitzing, and Allen is throwing it over the rush.

  180. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    The guys up front look sluggish…

  181. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Hogs in the red zone. Allen will toss to Wiliiams, crashing to the six, easy pickings.

  182. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Auburn is just WEAK, up front.

  183. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Toss to Williams, and no resistance. TOuchdown.

  184. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Guys were tackling like high school players.

  185. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….The PAT is good, and this game is tied at 21.

  186. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Man we look awful on D ….absolutely pathetic

  187. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..WHitehead just got run though, on that run.

  188. MechTiger says:

    Our D is killing us…looks like we’ve regressed a bit from last year.

  189. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I’d have never figured that an Ellis JOhnson defense would tackle this badly.

    …..I’d also say that the Rhino package is a dismal failure. They aren’t getting any push, and backs are just blowing by them.

  190. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….The Razorbacks will boot another touchback. 4:28 left in the half, and Auburn will take it at the 25.

  191. tigerpaw75 says:

    Arky oline is good – but we have more talent that what we are showing. Hope adjustments in defensive playcalling will help here.

  192. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Huddle up, then Grant goes in motion, gets about 3 on the sweep.

  193. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7. Johnson quick pass to Williams, down at the 33.

  194. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Possession play on third and one, CAP, will be stopped for nothing.

  195. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    The scary thing is that Arky’s offense looks like it is more sustainable because we can’t stop their running attack

  196. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Shon Coleman whiffed on his man.

  197. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn going, and gets a false start on Young. Ouch.

  198. tigerpaw75 says:

    Thats the 2nd 3rd and one CAP has gotten tackled in the backfield…Ark sniffing out the play

  199. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And in comes Carlson. They come after it, low punt, and will roll to Dean and he’s back to the Razorback 24.

  200. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    2:27 left in a tie game.

  201. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    We’ll this is going to be ugly….we got no rest for the defense

  202. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Arkansas will try to grind this out and go to the half with a lead, give to Williams, and Garrett hauls him down!

  203. tigerpaw75 says:

    Nice open field tackle by garrett

  204. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9. Allen will fire, and Derby can’t bring it in!

  205. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 9. Drop the MLB, please?

  206. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here’s Allen. Will fire wide, NO!

  207. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn still has two timeouts left, and will get the ball.

  208. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….the punt, Bray takes at the 27, and will snake up to the 40.

  209. tigerpaw75 says:

    nice return by bray on that one.

  210. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Johnson with 1:24

  211. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Wow….great stop, we needed that like a fluid IV

  212. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….Will fire to Williams, and he’s across midfield to the 40!

  213. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    duuuuuuuuukkke

  214. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here comes Auburn. Williams will get it again, fumbles out of bounds on the slot-out, eight yards.

  215. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……2nd and short. TIme, will fire, too tall for Coates on a deep ball.

  216. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and short, 43 seconds left. Draw play, and he’s to the 27, first down!

  217. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Johnson throws over Uzomah, incomplete with 31 seconds.

  218. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Tigers. THree wide, deep ball to Coates, thrown too far out of bounds.

  219. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 10. And Auburn burns their second timeout.

  220. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Hot first quarter, but JOhnson has cooled down significantly of late.

  221. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers in the gun, two backs. Dumped over the middle, won’t get the first down.

  222. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will run the clock down, and use their last timeout with a couple of seconds left.

  223. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Arkansas has two timeouts left, will they try to freeze the freshman kicker?

  224. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..A 42 yard attempt coming, with the wind behind him, and Carlson doinks it off the upright.

  225. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the half, Auburn and Arkansas are all tied up, 21-21.

  226. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the half, Jeremy Johnson is 12 of 16 for 243 yards and a couple of scores, no turnovers. Pretty good starting debut, eh?

  227. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Well let’s see who the better coach is in the second half.

    I’d say we have an advantage but we sure don’t look good going to the locker room

  228. MechTiger says:

    Yep, Johnson has probably been the most pleasant revelation of this game.

  229. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….On the other hand, the Rhino package has been whammed, countered and powered for 151 rushing yards in the first half, and Arkansas has rolled up 267 total yards. If anything, this defense has regressed, thus far.

    • tigerpaw75 says:

      No obvious playmakers on defense…very few dominating plays – remember a good tackle by Justin Garrett and a good pass breakup by Jonathan Jones on teh first drive. Not much else.

  230. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Checking the Club-400 scoreboard, Bama has eeked to a 20-17 halftime lead on West Virginia, the 8th best team in the Big-12 according to pundits.

  231. MechTiger says:

    Yeah, the D has to be fixed right now. It isn’t working and it will cost us this game (and others) if Ellis can’t get some glue on it.

  232. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..It might be time to bring in Nick Marshall. Auburn had only 68 rushing yards in the half, with 55 going to Artis-Payne. And CAP had two third-down lost-yardage carries. We need that triple threat to make the offense go. Also, we are getting beat by the Arkansas ends at left tackle, unfortunately.

  233. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….In SEC action right now, Missouri is playing patty-cake with South Dakota State, leading 28-18 in the third.

    Georgia trails Clemson 7-0. And Alabama retains a 20-17 lead on West Virginia early in the third. Two abortion plays by Lane Kiffen and a failed 4th down pass stopped Bama.

  234. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Razorbacks to kick. Irwin Hill knuckles it, to Grant, he’s loose, will take it over midfield, to the Arkansas 42, but a flag. Louis called..

  235. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That’s a horrible call. The coverage guy turned his back!

  236. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Louis can’t do anything right today

  237. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Nick Marshall in! Give to CAP, will go for about 4.

  238. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. Marshall to throw, will fire to Williams at the 30, giving up ground, and will lose five yards, and limping after the tackle.

  239. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    First bad play by duke

  240. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Possession play for the Tigers. Marshall takes, and will dump to Grant, will be close to the stake going out of bounds!

  241. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and short, Auburn going?

  242. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….Now they move the chains, first down. Give to CAP, and he gets maybe two.

  243. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Keeper, will get about 6!

  244. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Marshall’s command of the offense may be the difference. His ability to deceive will help the running game

  245. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2+. QUick huddle, unbalanced line, Marshall to throw, high pass, but Ray brings it down at the Arky 32!

  246. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give to CAP, sweeps wide, inside the 20!

  247. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    What a catch by Melvin!!

    Omg!!!!

    Amazing,,,

  248. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..A Razorback falldown slows down the pace, and the training crew comes in.

  249. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FIrst and ten AUburn. Give to Payne, nothing doing. ONe yard.

  250. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9. Marshall takes, and he’ll keep, he’ll go up the gut, and he SCORES!!!!!!!!!

  251. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..TOUCHDOOOOOWWWWNNN, AUBURNNNNN!

  252. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carlson is up and good, and Auburn leads 28-21, with 10:42 left in the third!

  253. tigerpaw75 says:

    NM is fast

  254. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    What a great problem to have…..two great QB’s!!!

    Boy we needed that!

  255. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..If they have to respect the QB run, it will completely change what they are doing defensively up front. I’m liking this…

  256. tigerpaw75 says:

    Notice how NM suddenly makes CAP better – a lot more open holes

  257. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Now, we get to see what Ellis Johnson has drawn up in the locker room. In the words of ToTM, we need to “nut up” on defense.

  258. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Carlson to kick off. Like every kick before, this one is past the goal line, and taken for a touchback in the end zone.

  259. tigerpaw75 says:

    Will JJohnson be able to run the zone read?

  260. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Razorbacks at the 25. Fake, will fire to Derby on the sideline, and Garrett on the tackle for a loss!

  261. tigerpaw75 says:

    Great tackle by garrett

  262. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 11. Tampa two, please?

  263. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……I set, will dump to the fullback, close out after 4.

  264. tigerpaw75 says:

    Great to see Justin actually making big plays in a game rather than just scrimmage or practice due to injury

  265. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 7. Possession play! Allen will take, and will fire, and Wilson dropped it at the stake!

  266. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Wilson was the slot guy, went outside under his teamate, and dropped it.

  267. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Alright , shut down series!

  268. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Punt to Bray, and he’s slashing up field, and smashes into the Arkansas holder after at 19 yard return!

  269. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Man that Piggie got leveled

  270. tigerpaw75 says:

    We have a punt returner this year boys

  271. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Let’s hope. Bray was the fair-catch guy the past two years. He’s more aggressive, so far this season.

  272. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here come the Tigers, with a chance to go to double digits. Fake the sweep, CAP powers for 6!

  273. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Fumble? ANd they give it to Arkansas?

  274. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Let’s see the replay…

  275. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Yep. Smacked out before CAP was down.

  276. tigerpaw75 says:

    I was about to say “don’t fumble”

  277. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….What a catastrophic play.

  278. tigerpaw75 says:

    He was trying to get the right arm in there to cradle the ball but was too late.

  279. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    CrAP

  280. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Arkansas 46, and the Auburn defense is under the gun again. Give to Collins, will fight for three.

  281. tigerpaw75 says:

    See if the “D’ can step up here. last drive was 3 and out.

  282. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 7 Razorbacks. One back. Fake, fake reverse, Hatcher on the screen, and he’s got a lot of room just jumped over Reed, big play.

  283. tigerpaw75 says:

    horrible tackle attempt by trovon reed

  284. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….From the 34. Counter, and Collins is stuffed by McKinzy and Moncrief!

  285. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Trogon Reed with a horrible missed tackle

  286. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 9. Allen will fake, will find Derby open, down to the AUburn 28.

  287. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 4, possession play. Bringing a package in. Here’s Allen, giving to Collins, will bounce outside, and he’s going down! Flag…

  288. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    4 down territory

  289. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Declined, and they are back to the 35!

  290. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….4th and ten, and Irwin-Hill is in to punt.

  291. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Nine-iron punt, will bounce back to the ten, and downed.

  292. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    That’s how you play 3rd down defense!!

    And finally got a holding call

  293. tigerpaw75 says:

    first holding call of the game for Arky

  294. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn MUST hold onto the ball! And drive for a score…

  295. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Wildcat Bray, will give to Grant on the sweep, and he’s got about 20 yards!

  296. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Marshall on the slant, will hit will Williams for 18!

  297. tigerpaw75 says:

    duuuuke!

  298. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Grant off tackle, cuts back and gets 4.

  299. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Keeper Marshall, will lose yardage.

  300. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And a flag… substutition infraction on Auburn.

  301. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 15. Fake a screen, then Marshall throws it away.

  302. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Daniel Carlson back in to punt, will hit, and roll down to the fifteen!

  303. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That’s Carlson’s worst punt of the day, and it went for 44 yards and was downed at the 15.

  304. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Toss to Marshall, will pick up about 5 on the quick snap.

  305. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I think we should bring in JJ for long passing down situations

  306. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Check that, 2nd and 7. Here’s Allen, to throw, hit, picked off by Whitehead, and he will GO! Flag?

  307. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    He gone!

  308. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The pick stands, block below the waist on Arky! So Whitehead gets the pick-six!

  309. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Carlson in for the PAT! The kick, is GOOD! AUburn leads, 35-21, with 2:39 left in the third!

  310. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….THerezie with the big hit on Allen, on the Star-blitz.

  311. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Rudy Ford was helped to the locker room, limping. Not good…

  312. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carlson to kick off once more, thus far he’s made the end zone every time.

  313. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..WIth the penalty, Carlson boots this one thru the uprights into the stands.

  314. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Razorbacks at the 25. Collins up the gut, and NOTHING! Blackson…

  315. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10+. And we’ve got movement, flag!

  316. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Back ‘em up, with an AUburn blitz coming.

  317. tigerpaw75 says:

    Defense playing with much more attitude

  318. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 16. Here’s Allen, and he’s firing across the middle, and they’ve got a first down to Hollister.

  319. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of Razorback downs. Allen will fake, and will dump it off, loose ball, but I think WIlliams got it back for Arkansas. Therezie with a big hit!

  320. tigerpaw75 says:

    therezie is our honey badger!

  321. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 13. Allen will give to Marshall, and that should have been a delay. to the 37, and that ends the 3rd quarter. AUburn leads, 35-21!

  322. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….At the end of three, Auburn is already at 429 offensive yards.

  323. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Possession play for Arkansas. Pressure, and Allen dumps it incomplete!

  324. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Irwin-Hill in to punt again. Here’s the boot, and Bray will fair-catch it at the Auburn 10.

  325. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Marshall brings ‘em out for a huddle. Pitch to Payne on the sweep, and he’s got a first down!

  326. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the Auburn 23. Marshall will give, CAP, up to midfield up the gut!

  327. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Marshall in trouble, will escape, and he’s ahead for five!

  328. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6 Tigers. Here’s a keeper, Marshall will be close, at the 39!

  329. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..inches short. 3rd down. Here’s CAP, blasting forward to the 35!

  330. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dominant Auburn line! New down set. Auburn calls time, with 12:20 left in this one.

  331. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    CAP really showing he’s a no. 1 back

  332. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Club-400 scoreboard… WVa keepin’ it close. Bama leads 30-23, but hasn’t closed this one out in Atlanta.

  333. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FIrst down TIgers, Marshall to throw, and Coates drops it in the end zone.

  334. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dart post, and too hot for Coates. Give to Grant, will bull down to the 24, and a first down!

  335. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Keeper, and this is a loss, on the wrong read.

  336. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 15. Here’s Marshall, will give to Grant, will shuffle forward to the 23.

  337. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Brings up 3rd and 9. Marshall will check off to the sideline, will be sacked.

  338. tigerpaw75 says:

    You feel like if we could score a td here it would ice it.

  339. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn could still go up three scores, if Carlson can convert.

  340. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Forty five yard effort, and HE’S GOT IT!

  341. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..With 9:55 left in the game, Auburn leads 38-21!

  342. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Wow how did Sammie miss that?

  343. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Back last spring, I picked Auburn over the Razorbacks, 38-10. Not quite on track, but the offense is on pace. With a lightning delay in place, we may be here a while. We’re now down, at least 30 minutes. I’ll switch over to Bama, for a while.

  344. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Bama is up 33-23 on West Virginia, with 6:16 left in that one. I’d say the onus is on the Mountaineers, needing to get a stop and score twice. A holding penalty on Bama give them hope, negating a big run by Yeldon.

  345. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Georgia and South Carolina were the preseason darlings of the SEC East, but USCe was tromped Thursday night by Texas A&M, and now Georgia is losing to Clemson 21-14, despite the Tigers losing a bunch of skill players to the NFL.

  346. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Henry will not get the first down for Bama, will they go on 4th down? Looks like…

  347. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Scott in to punt, and that’s the right call. WVa has it way back on their 28, down 10 points, with just 2:36 left in the game.

  348. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Trickett throws a short dumpoff on 4th down, and Bama takes over with the lead safe with only 1:05 left in the game.

    …..Meanwhile, Georgia and Todd Gurley have smashed their way to the a 21-all tie with Clemson, in the 2nd quarter.

  349. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..It’s a final in Atlanta. Bama closes out West Virginia, 33-23.

  350. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I do hate lightning delays! I remember one back in 2003 in Baton Rouge. I kept flipping back to the Bama-Tennessee game. Alabama lost in overtime, and when I switched back to the Auburn LSU contest, Auburn was already down 21-0.

    …..I guess the next one was against West Virginia in 2009, but I was there huddled in the Jordan-Hare concourse with the wet masses while we waited. Auburn did pretty well that day, with a 41-30 win over the Mountaineers.

    …..Here today, Auburn leads 38-21 with 9:55 left in the game, and against a run-oriented Arkansas squad, you’d have to think Auburn is in pretty good shape to win this one.

    • MechTiger says:

      Yeah, this is annoying…I think Auburn has the wind at their back once the game resumes…but I think one thing we had going for us was the the Hog D was a bit gassed…and they’ll get their breath back with this lengthy delay.

  351. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Latest word on this Auburn/Arkansas contest is that play is scheduled to resume at 7:20 PM. No word on whether it will resume on the SEC Network with the MSU/USM game now in progress, or on an overflow channel. I do know that Charter’s SEC overflow channel is 820, so we’ll check that when we get the word from Stan and Rod.

    ……RIght now, Auburn leads Arkansas 38-21 with 9:55 left in regulation.

    • MechTiger says:

      Last I heard from the SEC channel, right before they cut the the Mississippi game, was that they SEC channel would cut back to the Auburn game when it resumes.

  352. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Hi guys! I’m back home. No SEC network or a way to stream……

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..We’re waiting, on a stormy afternoon in the south. The MSU-USM game is started on the SEC Network. Mississippi State’s O-line looks very suspect against a bad C-USA team. According to crawls under the picture, the Auburn game will resume in about 5 minutes on the main SEC network. The MSU-Southern Miss game will be on the alternate channel, till Auburn/Arky gets finished.

      …..Regardless, we’ve got Stan and Rod on the radio, and I’ll stay on top of things while my family waits on me to fix supper.

        Just got my oldest sorted with a Godzilla cartoon on netflix. He loves it! Got Georgia clemspsun on TV…..so any updates will be welcome :)

  353. MechTiger says:

    Ahhhh…and it’s back! Game resumed.

  354. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Furthermore, MSU apparently has kicker problems. They’ve failed to cash in two Golden Eagle gifts, and have missed two field goals from medium range.

  355. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ,,,,,,Aaaand, we’re back!

  356. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Carlson will kick off a wet ball, and he’s just inside the goal line, and Korliss Marshall will juggle it, and down it.

  357. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Arkansas from the 25. In the gun. And a bad snap, false start!

  358. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Fan on field?

  359. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Screen to Marshall, will dart to near the stake, at the 34.

  360. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Batted at the line, and that’s incomplete! 3rd down.

  361. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Nice play Owens

  362. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and short, sneak, and Allen has it up the gut.

  363. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Pressure, flushed out, and the throw down field is incomplete. Garrett with a good play downfield in coverage.

  364. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Garret with a nice play

  365. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 10. Allen will fire over the middle, WIlson gets five, run down by Mincy.

  366. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here comes the rush, McKinzy with the sack!!!!!!

  367. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……And Arkansas will have to punt!

  368. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Finally a big sack !

  369. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….The boot, will roll to the 15, Bray did not field it. 52-yard punt.

  370. MechTiger says:

    Defense seems to be doing ok in wet conditions.

  371. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Musberger “McKinzy is their best pass rusher off the edge”

    Does that guy even do prep anymore?
    He sucks so bad

  372. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn has 8 minutes left in this one, with a 17 point lead. The Tuberville thing to do would be to run up the gut, and wind the clock each time to 01 seconds, and punt. If we drive for a score, this one’s over, and that’s what I’d like to see with almost three weeks till our next significant game.

  373. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Georgia’s passing looks suspect. Just throwing it out there.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      More accurately, the receivers are suspect. A lot of balls being thrown at receivers’ backs….

  374. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Marshall to CAP, will bull his way to the 47! Powerful run!!!!

  375. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Tigers over 500 yards. Keeper Marshall, not much there, no gain.

  376. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Streaming Stan and rod live now :)

  377. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 Tigers. Marshall takes, and will give to CAP, spinning, will bang up close to the first down!

  378. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And that’s a first down, they say. CAP has 172 on the day. CAP on the counter, he’s got six more!

  379. MechTiger says:

    CAP is busing loose now…

  380. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    CAP is running like a champ

  381. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..After another fall-down on the Arkansas defense, Auburn will have 2nd and 4.

  382. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here we go on the line. Unbalanced line right. Here goes CAP up the gut, nothing.

  383. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Brings up a possession play. Here’s Grant on the draw, and he’ll gash ‘em for a first down to the 27!

  384. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Auburn lets it run, down under 4. Draw to Grant, and he’s loose! He is near the goal line!

  385. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Corey is kind of fast

  386. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn is first and goal. Grant up the gut, won’t go down…. INNNNNNN!

  387. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Shot out of a cannon!

  388. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Another TOUCHDOOOWN, AUBURN!

  389. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Wow, now that is running between the tackles”

  390. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Carlson in, and up, and good! Auburn leads, 45-21 with 3:15 left. This one is in the bag, folks! War Eagle!

  391. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    War Eagle!!

  392. MechTiger says:

    Yeah, it’s all over but the post-game show now.

  393. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I was worried that we had Arkansas gassed, and that they’d rest up. No worries, this team came back out and broke off another score to clinch it. I love it!

  394. MechTiger says:

    and WAR EAGLE!

  395. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Score is about what I expected, but I sure didn’t think we would get dominated on the d line in the first half.

    I like how we rebounded coming out of the half. About the only thing that sucked in the second half was Brent and Jesse

  396. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    A smoke draw play…..Acid your title was bang on!

  397. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..So… we get to see the Arky two-minute drill, then San Jose state, then Manhattan, Kansas. Here’s Carlson, and he’s 8 yards deep on the kickoff.

  398. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Allen fires, and Hatcher falls down, incomplete in the downpour.

  399. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Allen dumps to Collins, and he’s got half of it, to the 30.

  400. MechTiger says:

    That pick 6 really turned the D around…maybe they just lacked confidence in the first half.

  401. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5. Allen takes, rolls out, will throw it out of bounds with Tre Williams on his shoulder.

  402. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Arky going? Auburn calls time.

  403. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Razorbacks still going. Allen rolls right, and the pass will be dropped!

  404. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..With just 2:18 remaining, Auburn should be able to run most of the clock out.

  405. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jonathan Wallace in at QB. Barber on the draw, only two.

  406. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8, Tigers. Wallace looks ‘em over, will give to Barber, and he powers to the 25.

  407. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Possession play with the rain pouring down. Give to Barber, outside, will bull down to the 11, and the clock is under a minute!

  408. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……They’ll stop the clock with an Arkansas injury, 45 seconds remain. Auburn will only have to snap it once more, unless Bielema pulls some shenanigans.

  409. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Last play of the game? They set the clock back in motion, and Auburn will not run another play.

  410. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …….It’s a final. Auburn whacks the Arkansas Razorbacks, 45-21.

  411. MechTiger says:

    That was a respectable stomping on Arky…War Eagle!

  412. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tied 21-all at the half and looking very vulnerable on defense, Auburn closed the door in the 2nd half and dominated. 24-0 since the break tells the story!

  413. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Incidentally, that is the biggest win over Arkansas in Auburn history. Previous high was the 65-43 win in 2010. We popped ‘em by 24, this time!

  414. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The TIgers finished with 595 yards of total offense, with the starting QB suspended for the first half. Future opponents, look out.

  415. MechTiger says:

    All else being equal, I’d rather be close at the half than close at the end…I love the idea that we’re a second-half football team again.

  416. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….It should also be noted that a badly gashed Auburn defense held Arkansas to just 61 total yards and no points in the second half.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      I knew my yelling at them would get them all straightened out. ;)

      I did scare a few cornhuskers…so I feel like my job there was done.

      • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

        …..This was a fun afternoon, for me. As expected, some things didn’t go as planned. Crazy-bad defense in the first half was the worst. However, adjustments were made, and Auburn mashed the Razorbacks 24-0 in the second half. Pretty cool!

        …..Nebraska fans need better, more traditional representation than Pelini can give them. It won’t end well, in Lincoln under the current regime.+

  417. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    I like what I saw all game from the offense and special teams (Bray looked awesome on punt returns, minus the roller), if the D can play like they did in the second half I think AU will be very good this year.
