Will the Tigers Mow Down Another Opponent?
Auburn vs. Florida State, Open Thread.
(Photo by Acid Reign.)

     War Eagle, everybody! After a month-long wait, it’s once again Auburn Football time! Tonight, the Auburn Tigers take on the Florida State Seminoles in the BCS National Title Game. The tilt with the number one ranked Seminoles will kick off approximately 7:30 PM Central Time, on ESPN. The winner of this game will take home the mythical national college football title. Auburn has a chance to make college football history, tonight. No team in the history of division one football has EVER beaten two number-one-ranked teams in a single season. Auburn already has one such victory this season, knocking off top-ranked Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

     The weather is pretty delightful in Southern California today. It’s currently sunny and 72 degrees at lunchtime. The temperature for the kickoff will likely be in the upper 60s, falling to about 50 degrees near the end of the game. Skies will remain clear for this one with low humidity, around 20 percent. Those attending the game will have a great view of a waxing half-moon tonight, high above the Rose Bowl.

     Tonight, the Tigers must continue their bulldozing ways on the ground, and generate some havoc for freshman Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston. Both defenses may have their hands full this game. Florida State’s undersized defense will have to deal with a crushing Auburn blocking offense, while Auburn’s suspect secondary will be tested by a full complement of FSU receivers that will be playing on Sunday in the future.

     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! This is the final BCS national title game! The Tigers must lay it on the line for all the marbles, tonight! War Eagle! Let’s beat those Seminoles!

    Gumbo ready…Check
    Firewood stacked…Check
    Motor home out front in case of emergency…check
    Jack Daniels on the counter…check
    Yep, I am ready

  2. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I’ve kind of broken with tradition, today. I’m drinking fresh-ground O’Henry’s vanilla creme brulee, rather than my usual Community Coffee. I do have Chex Mix made.

  3. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    I’m getting those big game flutters finally, but they’re the good kind. Our family of 30+ (and friends) will be cramming into my grandmothers living room to watch the game. It’s great to just be in the game, but to win would be awesome. Something grand will happen in this game for AU, it always does as of late. War Eagle my friends.

    p.s. It will be soooo satisfying to hear the ‘Noles fans cry after the game (if AU wins). They have been talking more trash than the Bammers did.

  4. domaucan1 domaucan1 says:

    I am “almost” speechless. This is it!

    The world will be better for this,
    That one team, scorned and covered with scars,
    Still strove, with their last ounce of courage,
    To reach the unreachable stars.

    WIN OR LOSE: IT’S ALWAYS GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER !!!

    WAR EAGLE !!!

    GO BIG BLUE !!!

    BEAT THE SEMINOLES !!!

  5. AuburnMisfit AuburnMisfit says:

    I’m still jittery and nervous. Want to get this game underway

  6. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I had a little request a few weeks ago by the web-oufit known as “Covers,” which does in-depth sports-book stuff. I tossed out a few words on that, and promptly forgot about it. AubTigerman sent me a link to it. Nice to know that they actually used my stuff!

    …..Now lets see if I can get the link to work!

  7. greyfox says:

    I’d love to get a feel for the atmosphere around the stadium from anyone there. Also, best guess to the % auburn fans in the stadium at kickoff?

    Judging from how most bowls go, I like our chances with superior rushing and better special teams.

  8. rn4au rn4au says:

    On my way to the plains with the family to watch the big game in the collosium with 8500+of my closest friends!! A big fat War Eagle!!!!

  9. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Happy Game Day everybody!! My game face is on. Wearing the warmest Auburn assemble that I could find in my closet–plus extra layers. This year has been amazing. Regardless of what happens on the field tonight, I don’t ever want to forget it. Dead last in the SEC to a rightful place in the MNCG. Holy crap!

    Can’t believe this is it! I’m so excited!! Looking forward to a great and waiting anxiously to see how the Tigers respond to a great test and testament of this season! War Eagle!!! Beat Those Noles!!

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..I’m planning to add an Auburn shirt this evening. I chickened out this morning, and put on a skiing base layer, then thermals, then a flannel shirt. Two pairs of wool socks, also.

      • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

        When I get home, I will shed some layers and put on my lucky shirt….it’s short sleeve, definitely not appropriate today.

  10. Todd92 Todd92 says:

    War Eagle everyone…. Been covered up with family issues the past 3 weeks so haven’t had much free time or felt like reveling. A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. Tonight we pour salt in the Iron Bowl wound by winning our second nc in 4 years. Beat Hell outta Seminoles!

  11. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..War Eagle! We’ve got ‘em right where we want ‘em. All the TV talking heads have Auburn losing this one. Will be delicious to show ‘em!

  12. friedca says:

    Game doesn’t come on till 230am here, so I laid down at 7 to try and catch a nap before it started. After 3 hours of restless tossing I decided my body was just too excited to sleep. Gonna be a long day tomorrow but so worth it. Can’t believe this amazing season. Whatever happens I’m proud of the team and the fortitude they showed after last season, I’m thankful for Coach Malzahn and the vision he had for this team, and most of all I’m proud of the AU family who, after the worst season in 50 years, didn’t go into a pissy fit and throw blame but got behind their team and showed them from the beginning that they support Auburn no matter what. War Eagle everyone.

  13. Tigerstripe Tigerstripe says:

    Gah! Finally! Shutting down the pc and heading to the big screen to listen to all the pregame crap… Gonna flip some bugers, top it off with blue cheese, chips, homemade salsa and a cooler of Michelob Ultra… I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. No matter what happens, don’t give up boys and fight to the end and don’t let up. War Damn Eagle guys!!!

  14. Jay Coulter Jay Coulter says:

    Looking forward to reading the comments tonight. I can’t take the build-up anymore. I’m turning off the television and the internet until game time. My nerves are shot and we’ve got hours to go. This is agony. War Eagle everybody!

  15. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    Big news and maybe not good news. I just heard Danny Sheridan picked AU to win. What??? The only thing worse is Finescum picking us.

    • Third Generation Tiger Third Generation Tiger says:

      I figured Sheridan was still too busy looking for his fictitious bagman to handicap a football game.

  16. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Around the horn is about to preview AU-FSU on the Deuce, after an endless commercial break…

  17. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Split 50/50, picking each team. Folks picking FSU talk about ‘em dominating everybody. Folks picking Auburn point at strength of schedule.

  18. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Takeo Spikes is up next on ESPN-2.

  19. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Off to brave the cold and pick up last minute items. I’ll check back in later…probs once Baby ToTM goes to bed.

    Until then: WAR EAGLE!!! BEAT THE HELL OUT OF THE NOLES!!!!

  20. Tiger4Life says:

    Take heart Jay!
    You are feeling what it MEANS to be a Tiger Fan!
    War Eagle! Payback for 34-6 in Jordan Hare…TONIGHT!
    CRUSH EM BIG BLUE!

  21. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Saban’s on…

  22. ATL_AU_FAN says:

    I am so ready for this game to get underway. Only our Tigers can silence the doubters which is perhaps as it should be.
    A hearty BCSNCG WAR EAGLE to all the TET faithful and, as always…

    IT’S GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER!!!!

  23. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Yes, War Eagle indeed! Fantastic Tiger Walk coverage on ESPN! Tre Mason was bouncing around like crazy with the fans!

  24. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    Win the toss, defer, hold FSU 3 & out, score, onsides kick, recover, score again, FSU wilts. How’s that for a bold prediction. Don’t laugh, it could happen

  25. ATL_AU_FAN says:

    I am wanting FSU to know what smash-mouth football is. If they take that, stop Auburn, and still maintain their stats then so be it. 12-2 is nothing over which to be the least bit ashamed.
    Why does it seem that burden of proof is on Auburn’s shoulders? From my viewpoint, FSU is the team with something that must be proven.

  26. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I agree. I am just glad to be here, tonight!

  27. spanky says:

    A quick war eagle to everyone before the game.

  28. dzer13 says:

    WE!

    Just getting home from work, marinating wings for the grill at the half, and just cracked the first cold one! Let’s do this!! Make a freshman feel like a freshman;)

    Anyone else take off tomorrow? :)

  29. MechTiger says:

    T-45 to liftoff…time to strap in folks. War Eagle!

  30. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Warming up, very similar to other games we’ve seen.

  31. gonecoastal says:

    Just logged in, but please Corso, pick the ‘Noles…..

  32. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Wow, I’m glad this one’s on the Auburn network, and I don’t have to listen to Musburger!

  33. gonecoastal says:

    Musberger: “I’m Kirk Herbstreet, along with Brent Musberger”?

    I didn’t just imagine that, did I?

  34. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..He does get a little confused, from time to time.

  35. ATL_AU_FAN says:

    Let’s get this show on the road!!

    War Damn, y’all, JUST WAR DAMN!!!

  36. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    War Eagle, everyone! Play hard! Have fun! War Damn!!!!!

    Unbelievable nerves right now. Can’t wait!!

  37. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Oh and before I forget, I love you guys, man!!!

    War Eagle!

  38. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Yes, the butterflies are in full effect!

  39. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..War Eagle! Auburn fans are the greatest!

  40. gonecoastal says:

    Yes!!! Corso picks FSU!!!!!

  41. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..No fear about Corso. He’s an FSU player.

  42. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers look ready!

  43. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I don’t see much gold in the stands! All orange and blue!

  44. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Coin toss coming up.

  45. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the toss, and the Seminoles win the toss. They defer.

  46. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn will have the ball first. Time to take it down and score!

  47. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the kickoff! Bray and Mason. Here’s the boot, and this one is lined to Bray deep, and he takes a knee.

  48. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers start at the 25. Here’s the pistol. Louis in motion, Mason will grind it up the left, and he’s got a first down!

  49. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….At the 36. Mason gets the call up the gut, not much.

  50. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    2nd and 9. Here’s the pistol, Mason gets it, not much.

  51. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Possession play for the Tigers. And the Tigers can’t get lined up, call timeout.

  52. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….HUddle, fake, Marshall fires, too low for Louis! Ouch.

  53. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Ricardo….Cmon man.

    Cant have that

  54. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Steven Clark in. Here’s a towering punt, and Shaw will fair catch it at the 23.

  55. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Seminoles out in the I. Here’s the give to Freeman, and he’s loose for about 20.

  56. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    yuck. that was ugly

  57. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the FSU 44. Split backs. Dumped underneath, Green has it, to the Auburn 41.

  58. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    stupid new turf, screwing with the footing

  59. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Empty backfield. Here’s Winston, will check off, takes, and will fire, tipped, incomplete!

  60. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Winston will dump it to Shaw, and he’s losing yardage!

  61. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Great call Ellis

  62. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and long Seminoles. Here’s Winston, a flag, a false start!

  63. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    The footing is going to be an issue, guys slipping and sliding all over

  64. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 16, now. Winston will Three wide. Winston will have time, will fire to Green, who wasn’t even covered, inside the 20.

  65. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    We need to get longer cleats on our DBs NOW

  66. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….In the red zone. Here’s the I set. Freeman on the give, hit in the backfield, will get a couple.

  67. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. In the gun. Slot left. Will unload to the end zone, and can’t get it to O’Leary!

  68. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 8. Here’s Winston in the gun. He’ll take, step up, and he’ll be sacked by Eguae

  69. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    red zone D!!!

  70. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here comes the field goal unit for Florida State. It’s from 35 yards, and this one is up and good.

  71. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….With 9:53 left in the first, FSU takes a 3-0 lead in the BCS Title game.

  72. gonecoastal says:

    Considering that we had players slipping and sliding all over the place, holding them to 3 ain’t bad….It ain’t good, but it beats the alternative.

  73. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers with two big mistakes with the Louis drop, and the 3rd down conversion, but hold the Seminoles to three!

  74. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Well that was a victory after giving up the big 3rd down
    Now WE need 6……followed by a kick

  75. MechTiger says:

    Ellis has been burning the midnight oil…awesome D! We can hold them.

  76. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Davis and Bray deep, and this one is deep, and Bray brings it out, and slides down crossing the 20.

  77. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Why isn’t Corey Grant on returns? Bray is ok, but Grant can be electric.

  78. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers will start at the 21. Here’s a huddle. Pitch to Mason, will POWER to the 30!

  79. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Nice block by Prosch…clears the way….as always

  80. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 2. Pistol. Checks down. Give to Mason, not much, maybe a yard.

  81. ATL_AU_FAN says:

    Don’t know if I can watch and type!! LET’S GO TIGERS!!

  82. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    We aren’t getting much push in the middle.

  83. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and a yard. Give to mason, and I’m not sure. Will be close.

  84. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I think we got a generous spot. First down.

  85. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking off is Marshall. Dumped off, Coates has it on the hitch, off the tip, at the 38!

  86. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Huddle again. Fake the sweep, will run around, will unload, and will be flagged for grounding.

  87. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Wow, that’s about a 10 yard loss.

  88. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Bad play by Marshall

  89. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 14. Marshall will fire down the middle, Davis HAS it! First down!

  90. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    MARCUS DAVIS!! What a play!! Great pass too

  91. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….At the FSU 45, give to Mason, gets about 4.

  92. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Pace, Marshall keeps for one.

  93. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5. Marshall will take, and he’ll be bumped and incomplete.

  94. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and 5, Auburn will send in the punt team. Clark will hit at the one, and will die at one!

  95. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Downed at the two!

  96. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Now THAT is why we have the special teams advantage.

  97. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….They are running a corner blitz nearly every down. Time for that tunnel-screen to Coates!

  98. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    FSU is taking away the middle of the line and make us earn the yardage on the edge consistently, which is not our forte.
    We are going to struggle.

  99. dzer13 says:

    wish they would have run on 3rd and 4 there. we were in a position to go on 4th if we were just short. no worries though. we can move the ball and it will happen

    WE!

  100. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….It’s been mostly from the field side, too. FSU is leaving a lot of green grass out there.

  101. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FSU in the gun, Winston will dump it incomplete towards Green.

  102. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. Under center, Winson will give to Wilder, NOTHING!

  103. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 10, possession play. Winston fire, and Mincy knocks it away from Benjamin!

  104. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Nice play by Mincy.

  105. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..THAT is how you defend the back shoulder fade. The punt, Davis has it, up the gut!

  106. dzer13 says:

    D is bringing it and their QB is a freshman!

  107. MechTiger says:

    Holy cow…first quarter is turning into a battle of D!

  108. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Down to the FSU 24!

  109. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers in business at the Seminole 24, thanks to heroics by Davis!

  110. gonecoastal says:

    Yes!
    Great punt, great D play, great return!

  111. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Looks like Jimbo went to the Saban school of “punting isn’t important”.

  112. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I think we fake the jet sweep this time, and fire a screen to the outside. They are blitzing right at the jet sweep, every time.

  113. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Time to capitalize on field position.

  114. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers will go trips left, screen to Louis, not much. No blitz, that time.

  115. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give to Mason, he’s to the 20.

  116. dzer13 says:

    We need a TD and that will really put the pressure on Winston

  117. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Gotta give FSU credit, they are STOUT up front

  118. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5 Tigers. Marshall will go empty. Mason moves in. Dump to Uzomah short, will DRAAAGGG a defender for the first down.

  119. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Fake to Grant, keeper, and he’s to the 11 on a twisting run!

  120. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    FSU aint’ giving up the middle.
    We either pass or sweep

  121. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Spot it at the 12. 2nd and 9. Here’s will fire a fade, knocked away from Coates. Not enough air.

  122. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 9. Here comes the blitz. Screen to Mason, he’s GONE!

  123. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Finally , making them pay for those blitzes

  124. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …Batman look, will pull ‘em in. White to hold. Here’s Parkey, up and good!

  125. dzer13 says:

    huge…..pressure on Winston is mounting folks! make a freshman feel like a freshman!

    WE!

  126. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….With 3:07 left in the first, Auburn takes the lead, 7-3!

  127. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That’s Mason’s FIRST career receiving TD!

  128. MechTiger says:

    Yep, that works! War Eagle!

  129. friedca says:

    Boom, great run.

  130. dzer13 says:

    if the pressure is on we will get a D TD tonight;)

  131. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Now comes the hard part Can we get a stop and put some doubt in the back of FSU’s mind?

  132. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..History says Winston will settle down. But I like the intensity Auburn’s defense is playing with.

  133. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey will boot this one deep. It’s WAY deep, and another touchback.

  134. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Gotta be impressed with how Nick is performing overall. He is struggling with being put in the position to throw consistently, but he is doing the job.

    And Hey, look what a few weeks of practice has done with his fundamentals and his touch.

  135. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FSU starts at the 25. Winston has ‘em out. Trips left, one back in the gun, give to Freeman, hit at the line, pulls away from Wright, and he’s got about 4.

  136. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. Option, Winston keeps, and he’s up to the 33.

  137. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Brings up 3rd and 2. Shotgun. Will fake, and he’s going to be SACKED!!!! DEE FORD!

  138. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Big 3rd down
    DEEEEEEFFFFOOOOOORRRRDDD

  139. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Winston shaking his head! Beaty to punt, and Auburn ran into him. Ouch.

  140. dzer13 says:

    looks like a freshman to me

  141. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That’s Jonathan Ford, and that’s a new set of downs for FSU.

  142. gonecoastal says:

    Argh!!!!!!!

  143. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    That’s as bad as a turnover

  144. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Here come the Seminoles from the 41, quick screen, and nothing doing! Therezie with the stop!

  145. gonecoastal says:

    ‘Kay, Shake it off, let’s do it again, Tigers!!!!

  146. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Therezie….that’s what you do!

  147. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 FSU. QB draw, and not much for Winston! Frost got him for one!

  148. dzer13 says:

    let that freshman think about it through the qtr break

  149. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I love that helmet sandwich they gave Jameis.

    That’s what we need to be doing when he keeps the ball

  150. gonecoastal says:

    1st quarter break came at the perfect time for Jameis. His eyes were kind glassy after that hit!

  151. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….That’s the end of the first quarter, with Auburn leading 7-3!

  152. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Winston in the gun, 3rdd and 9. Here’s the throw, and Davis knocks it away!

  153. gonecoastal says:

    Commercial commentary: “Party Down South”

    Really?

    Great D, Chris!

  154. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..They’ll send in Beatty again to punt. Hammers it, and Davis will fair catch it at the 15.

  155. dzer13 says:

    lets go boys. initial adrenaline is all gone. now it time to do our thing!

    WE!!

  156. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I thought CBS had a lot of commercials, but ESPN is trying to get in a huge break between every couple of downs! Oh, well, time for snack-grabbing!

  157. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    It’ll be interesting if Jameis gets frustrated and trys to force something.

    Wonder how the pompous Nole fans feel about how their unstoppable offense is doing

  158. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn’s getting pressure, and he’s having to get rid of it.

  159. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason is loose, breaking free, and oh.. ball is loose, blown dead!

  160. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And the next snap is blown dead for a review. I think that’s clearly down.

  161. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Replay… he was on his back before that came out.

  162. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Tigers set up at the 38. Here’s the half huddle, pitch to Grant, cut down for a big loss, flag?

  163. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Unsportsmanlike conduct on Joyner for FSU!

  164. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs for the Tigers! at Midfield. Fake, Marshall first to Ray, will angle down, and he will SCORE!

  165. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That corner blitz BURNED ‘em, no one covered Ray! Parkey is up and good!

  166. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Ray you say!!!!

    I DO, I DO!!
    TOuchdown Auburn!!

  167. dzer13 says:

    WDE!!!!

  168. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….With 13:48 in the half, Auburn leads 14-3!

  169. dzer13 says:

    now lets see that freshman again! ;)

  170. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Blitz a corner every down, and Malzhan will HURT you!

  171. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I am sooooo happy for Nick. He has totally been disrespected in the lead up to this game. Its all been Jameis this and Jameis that but Nick is the guy that is making the correct reads on passing downs and making the Noles pay.

    Now the question is….will the Noles loosen things up inside to defend the pass?? If so, game over.

  172. restless6 says:

    Free shoes U can’t stop Auburn.

    The romp is on cuz!

  173. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the boot by Parkey, and short. Whitfield, will burst out to the 21 before being spilled.

  174. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Two back shotgun for Winston. He drops back, goes deep, overthrown!

  175. dzer13 says:

    freshman

  176. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Man, I am really proud of the D so far.

  177. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. In the gun. Will fire, and way overthrows Benjamin!

  178. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Boy, Jameis looks like hes going to throw a tantrum

  179. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Possession play on 3rd and 10. Three wide. And blown dead! False Start!

  180. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    FSU, starting to FEEEEEEL it.

  181. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 15 for Winston. Two backs. Winston will take, and he’s giving to Freeman, cut down at the 25!

  182. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Nice run….good blocking

  183. dzer13 says:

    how does that make the freshman feel when they wouldnt let him throw there? :)

  184. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..4th and 4, and Beatty is back in to punt. Davis deep. Line drive, will bounce to the 38 and dead.

  185. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Y’all, a TD here could be a back breaker!

  186. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Bad punt!!
    YOU HAVE TO PLAY ALL PHASES OF THE GAME IF YOU EXPECT TO WIN NOLES!!

  187. dzer13 says:

    let’s go Tigers! run down hill now. their whole team is on their heels ;)

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      They are definitely beginning to wonder where Clemson is….because that is who they thought they were playing.

  188. dzer13 says:

    no need for cutesie here imo. run it hard and punch them in the face time!

    WE!!

  189. restless6 says:

    Jameis who?

    ESPN talking heads are reportedly threatening to jump of the tallest building in Bristol.

  190. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Marshall and co. at the 38. Fake, and Marshall will lose yardage.

  191. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 12. Tigers give to Mason, he’s all the way up to midfield on the buck sweep!

  192. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    What a run by Mason, amazing

  193. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Marshall will keep, and he’s stood up at the 43.

  194. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Marshall checking off on 2nd and 2. Marshall to throw, will miss Uzomah deep, double covered.

  195. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 2 Tigers. Coleman in as an extra tight end, Marshall fakes, will keep, hit out of bounds at the 33, but a first down!

  196. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Not sure how that’s not a flag?

  197. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Remember when we didn’t worry about Marshall getting hurt?
    Now it would be a back breaker

  198. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..An injury timeout slows Auburn down. 1st and 10 at the 33. Give to Mason, will fight down to the 28.

  199. wpleagle says:

    great block by prosch.

  200. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. Marshall on the keeper, cut, and feet went out on the bad turf. Got to the 26.

  201. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 3 Tigers. Mason right at ‘em again, and he’s to the 23!

  202. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs, and whistles, and a flag.

  203. dzer13 says:

    Auburn’s offense has 1 starting SR. folks. :)

  204. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Encroachment on Auburn, Reed.

  205. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Reeds done that twice this year

  206. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 15. Here’s the draw to Mason, not much. A couple.

  207. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 13. Heavy set, checking off. Here’s Marshall, will miss Coates on a miscue.

  208. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    CJ Uzomah time

  209. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and long. FSU coming. Marshall will roll out, will run, down to the 16! Short, but a good gain.

  210. restless6 says:

    Trovon derailed that one.

  211. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..On 4th and 4, they’ll bring Parkey it, I’d think.

  212. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the kick, and Parkey missed it! Noooooooo!

  213. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Dang it. That hurts

  214. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Not enough hook. FSU takes over with 7:54 left in the half.

  215. restless6 says:

    Thanks Trovon.

    That guy could muck up a nice dream.

  216. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I hope he doesn’t lose his confidence. It was a good kick, just didn’t push it enough.

  217. gonecoastal says:

    I admit that I wanted that score, but Parkey doesn’t miss many. I’ll take this miss now n favor of a good kick later.

    Got to stop stupid penalties, and Greg Robinson needs to step up his game tonight.

  218. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Three receiver set to the right. Pistol. WIll give to Freeman, and he’s backing up to the 24.

  219. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6, a sack, fumble? Auburn HAS IT!

  220. restless6 says:

    Now score.

  221. gonecoastal says:

    Auburn ball!

  222. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Blackson knocked it out as Winston took off! Swain got the loose ball at the 27!

  223. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    F
    U
    M
    B
    L
    E

    Jameis famous for the wrong reasons right now

  224. dzer13 says:

    make a freshman feel ike a freshman!

    I want a T shirt like that when this one is all said and done ;)

    WE!!

  225. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Marshall, gives to Mason, stopped at the 25.

  226. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Here’s Mason up the gut again, for two more.

  227. gonecoastal says:

    Not successful running behind Robinson tonight.

  228. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 6. Here’s Marshall will roll, fires to the 13 to Bray, first down on the leaping grab!

  229. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Heavy set. Here’s Mason, and he’ll push forward, to the six!

  230. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Thee ya go Mason!!

  231. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….at the six, Marshall will keep, gets to the 4.

  232. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 2 Tigers. Marshall lines ‘em up. Keeps, will angle for the pylon, SCORES!

  233. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….TOUCHDOOOOOOWWWWNNN, AUBURN!

  234. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    HOOOHOOOOOO!!!

  235. gonecoastal says:

    Touchdown Auburn!!!

  236. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey is up and good, and with 5:01 left in the half, it’s up and good! Auburn leads 21-3 in the Rose Bowl!

  237. gonecoastal says:

    Do NOT take our foot of the “gassed” pedal!!!

  238. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers in great shape at this point.

  239. gonecoastal says:

    *off OF the…

  240. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey will boot this one, Whitfield takes it one yard deep, and he’s up the field, Louis the last man, will trip him at the 34! Whew!

  241. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Got to tell you. As impressive as this is, WE HAVE TO KEEP THE HAMMER DOWN!!

  242. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Winston has ‘em out there, and they jump! False start! Irving!

  243. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Hard to believe that the Incredinoles are struggling to establish “confidence”

  244. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….1st and 15. Winston gives to Williams, gets maybe 6. Swain on the stop.

  245. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Give Williams again, Holland has him at the 40.

  246. MechTiger says:

    This is almost scary…somebody tell me when we get up 6 TDs so I can relax.

  247. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 4 FSU. Winston in the shotgun, will hit his man, and Green drops the ball!

  248. gonecoastal says:

    Thank you, receiver!

  249. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….In comes Beatty, a busy man tonight. Odd formation, fake, give on the reverse, and Williams got the first down to the 47!

  250. gonecoastal says:

    ARGH!!!!

  251. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Really? We weren’t ready for that?

  252. dzer13 says:

    wow. here comes the pick six ;)

  253. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….NEW set of FSU downs. Will fire left, and Davis butts Green down at the Auburn 47.

  254. MechTiger says:

    Wow…FSU is still very dangerous after all.

  255. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and short. Option to the wide side, Winston keeps to the Tiger 40.

  256. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10. Winston to throw, will dump over the middle, Green has it for a dozen more.

  257. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….At the Tiger 28. Three wides. Winston gives to Freeman, will only get 2, Frost on the stop!

  258. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 8. Winston under pressure, will throw it up for grabs, and it is knocked away by Whitehead!

  259. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 8 FSU. Winston will take, has time, will run, and he’s inside the five. Lost contain.

  260. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….First and goal FSU. Need a turnover. At the three. Give to Freeman, touchdown.

  261. restless6 says:

    Sigh…

  262. gonecoastal says:

    Crud.

  263. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..They are reviewing the TD? I thought that was pretty obvious.

  264. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Confirmed. TD FSU.

  265. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..The PAT is up, and good. With 1:28 left in the half, Auburn leads 21-10.

  266. restless6 says:

    What in the hell happened? I can’t believe that drive.

  267. gonecoastal says:

    Great call on the fake punt, bad tackling on Winston’s run.

    Crud.

  268. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Bray and Grant deep. This kickoff is to Bray at the goal line, and he angles up to the 29.

  269. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I’d really like to get some points prior to the half since FSU gets it first in the second half

  270. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers in the gun. Marshall will give to Mason, and he’s yanked down after a 5 yard gain.

  271. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5, Mason, got only a yard.

  272. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5 Auburn. Clock running. FSU calls time, their first, with 12 seconds left.

  273. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Under center, play action, and overthrows Coates.

  274. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….FSU in good shape in coverage. Five seconds left.

  275. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I really don’t like this strategy. We aren’t going to win, sitting on the ball. I know you don’t want to give up the ball but I think you have to play 60 minutes like every play counts

  276. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clark will punt, and this one bounces dead at the six.

  277. gonecoastal says:

    :05 left? Hail Mary!

    Just saying…..

  278. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..At the half, Auburn leads FSU, 21-10! War Eagle!

  279. gonecoastal says:

    Oh we’ll.

    War Eagle!

  280. restless6 says:

    JB Grimes needs to light Robinson up.

    Ellis Johnson and Rodney Garner need to light his guys up.

    That free shoes drive was unacceptable.

  281. dzer13 says:

    Gus out coached everyone in the second half this season. I don’t see that changing tonight!

    WDE!

  282. MechTiger says:

    Well, if nothing else, we’ve crushed the Winston invincibility myth.

  283. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Checking the Stinger Scoreboard… Auburn is winning the yardage battle, with 232 offensive yards to 156 for the Seminoles. Auburn has 119 on the ground, despite near constant corner blitzes from FSU. Nick Marshall has only hit 7 of 13 passes, but no turnovers, and a gaudy 8.7 yards per pass and 2 TDs. Meanwhile, Heisman winner Jameis Winston is just 6 of 15 for 4.1 yards per pass, and a costly fumble.

  284. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Steven Clark is an unsung hero, with a 44.7 yard average on 3 punts, killing it dead inside the FSU 10 twice!

  285. wpleagle says:

    Just don’t want to see a repeat of the Georgia game.

  286. gonecoastal says:

    The good news is that if WE see it, the coaches do, too. If (early-draft-pick) Robinson can’t contain deal with the redshirt freshman DE, we will have to something else.

    I think they’ve watched us run off left tackle all year, and are selling out there. Adjustment time? You betcha’, and a healthy dose of smash mouth on Winston!

  287. GRT2BAUTIGER says:

    Steven Clark is like Jason Dufner with a wedge in his hand.

  288. gonecoastal says:

    Acid, total agreement on he keyboards, and I like the idea on burning the corner. We did that at the beginning of the game, but we haven’t gone back to it much since then (that I recall, anyway).

  289. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Both teams opened trying to run. I’d suspect that FSU will come out slinging it, this half, as Auburn’s linebackers are up the field on this one. Conversely, Ellis Johnson might drop 8 starting out, to see what they’ll do. The D-line will need to continue to play with fury!

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      I actually think they will try to establish the run and let Jameis work off that. They looked a lot more confident running at the end of he half, especially with Winston in the mix.
      They won’t leave anything on the chalk board, we better be prepared for anything.

  290. gonecoastal says:

    OTOH, we wait a little while, don’t show it again until it’s critical, and burn them?

  291. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..One final interesting halftime note: Teams with a halftime lead in the BCS Title Game are undefeated. And Auburn is up ten…

  292. gonecoastal says:

    One of the things that has been a constant this year is that we’ve been a second-half team. Let’s keep it up, and confuse FSU on both sides of the ball!

  293. MechTiger says:

    I think FSU goes up 3rd QTR and it’s a battle to the finish line 4th QTR. That’s the way I would bet.

  294. gonecoastal says:

    Colonel, yep, foot on the “gassed” pedal!

  295. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here the second half.

  296. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Cody Parkey to kick off! This one is is deep, and to a knee is Whitfield, touchback!

  297. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I still think we are going to need 42 or more to win. I’m not feeling as confident….yet.
    If we can get the inside run established, I will call it. Right now we are having to work too hard to get those inside yards.

    If we can get the running game going, I like us being able to punish them into submission.

  298. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..First and 10 at the 25 for FSU, three wides. Two backs in the gun. Winston will give to Freeman, got about 4 off the right.

  299. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Same set, and Winston is going down! McKinzy!

  300. gonecoastal says:

    Col: them, too, trying to run it right at us. Got him!

  301. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 11! Winston will take, will go long, over everyone as Auburn rushed nine men!

  302. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Wow, now that is the rabid kind of defense I like to see!!

  303. gonecoastal says:

    And MORE grass stains on Winston!

  304. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In comes Beatty to punt, a three and out! Davis deep. Will hit it high, Davis will juggle it, but holds on!

  305. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Lord that is just what we DON’T need

  306. gonecoastal says:

    Whew!

  307. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers will go with Mason off the left side, up to the 40.

  308. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd 7, fake, and a dump over the middle, Coates! To the FSU 38!

  309. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….quick screen to Bray, and he gets only 2.

  310. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 8. checking the play. Marshall will take, will throw deep, overthrown.

  311. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 8 Tigers. Fake, Marshall will go down the middle, Coates HAS it, but a flag.

  312. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Robinson gets the holding flag.

  313. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 18, now. Marshall will take, and miss Coates too high.

  314. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And in will come Steven Clark. Here’s the punt, and will be fair caught at the nine!

  315. dzer13 says:

    BS holding call imo

  316. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Missed opportunity, there. Big Ten refs calling an uneven game. Coates got ROCKED before the ball got there on the go route, no call. Then a ticky tack holding call on Robinson.

  317. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Winston and company will start at the 9. Give to Freeman, blatant hold, no call, and he’s got about 5.

  318. dzer13 says:

    holding everywhere on that one ;)

  319. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 5. Winston has time, will hit Green for 11.

  320. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of downs. And a flag, and blown dead! False start on Benjamin!

  321. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 15 Seminoles. Drops to throw to Benjamin, gets about 7.

  322. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 8. Here’s Winston, will throw it to Green, he’ll get the first down at the 36.

  323. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. And we’ve got more whistles, FSU calls time with 9:18 left in the 3rd.

  324. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn had a seven man front up there, and Jimbo didn’t like the play call.

  325. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….FSU has it first and ten at their own 36.

  326. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I don’t like us blitzing this much. Jameis looks much more comfortable throwing quickly. I think we need to stick with the four man rush and make him beat the coverage.

  327. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I’d expect Jimbo to keep throwing short stop routes, till Auburn bites up, then go double-move.

  328. restless6 says:

    How can Auburn stop this dink and dunk crap?

  329. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Under center, fake, rollout, and Winston will power for 9 yards.

  330. restless6 says:

    Tackle dammit!

  331. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 1. In the gun with two back. Give to Abram on the belly, got about 4 and a new set of downs.

  332. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..1st and 10. Winston to throw, and will hit Benjamin down at the 29, near side.

  333. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of downs again. One back. Will toss to Freeman, won’t get much.

  334. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Need a turnover now

  335. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Winston will take, and a big rush, Winston throws it away!

  336. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Nice pressure

  337. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 8. Calling for noise. Checking off, two backs. Winston will try to run, and he’s down at the 24! Frost on the stop!

  338. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Aguayo in for the field goal, about a 41 yard attempt. Here’s the kick, and he got it.

  339. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….With 6:05 left in the third, Auburn’s lead is cut to 21-13.

  340. restless6 says:

    Need a TD bad.

  341. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn needs a drive in the worst way, here!

  342. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Good damage control.

    Now we need to get some points.

  343. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Aguayo will kick off. Auburn needs to watch for an onside kick.

  344. audude audude says:

    Must get a drive and points…preferably 7!!!

  345. gonecoastal says:

    We need to play error-free football on this possession, shoving it down their throats with a little bit of passing, and eat the clock.

  346. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Need to beware the onsides kick

  347. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Pooch kick, bobbled, but Prosch fell on it at the 26!

  348. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Close…that’s what they were looking for

  349. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here come the Tigers! Give to Mason, and he’s powering to the 32.

  350. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….CAP in the game, wildcat set. Keeps, and nothing doing.

  351. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Awful call. Awful, Awful call

  352. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..3rd and 5. Possession play. Huddle, and into the gun. Tried a shovel pass, poor throw, incomplete.

  353. restless6 says:

    Wildcat is so 2009.

    What a waste of downs.

  354. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Jernigan just KILLED us in the middle, on that possession. Clark kills another one deep, at the FSU 18.

  355. dzer13 says:

    waaay to cutisie imo. need the read o

  356. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Is our butt getting tight?

    What the f are we doing?

  357. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..That was a really bad time to go away from our bread and butter, and hark it back up on a three ‘n’ out.

  358. MechTiger says:

    Noles have done a pretty good job of limiting our running game…so far, our D has really been holding us up.

  359. audude audude says:

    Not what we needed. We cannot win with a 3rd qrt melt down on offense……..

  360. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….They have stopped blitzing the corner. Time to get Nick going on the keeper.

  361. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Noles in business at their own 18. Here’s Winston, will give to Freeman, up to the 22.

  362. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    So far, I’m not impressed with the 2nd half gameplan on offense. We look like we don’t really want to go at them.
    We will not win if this continues.

  363. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6. Shotgun for Winston. Will fire to Benjamin, can’t get it!

  364. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 6 for FSU. Winston will take, and has time, will go down! At the 15!

  365. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Ford on the sack!

  366. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Gotta love Dee, hes doing his job!!

  367. dzer13 says:

    D is huge tonight ladies and gents!

    WE!!

  368. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Beatty to punt. Kicks low, and hits Davis, and whoa! Looks like Auburn got it back…

  369. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Hit Marcus Davis first, and Patrick Lymon got it back!

  370. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Keeper, Marshall will take it all the way to 44!

  371. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …Give to Mason, lost a yard. Jernigan beat Dismukes badly again.

  372. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Man our line is getting owned inside

  373. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 12. Auburn letting the clock run. Takes, will fire to Bray, no blocks, got only a yard or two.

  374. restless6 says:

    Does Gus not have a different play for the speed down other than a quick run up the middle?

  375. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Bray is not what I would call, elusive

  376. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 11. Marshall will fire down the middle, and Ray can’t hang on when hit.

  377. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Great play by Brooks

  378. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..IN comes Steven Clark. This one is is hit down to the one, and Jones knocks it down to the three yard line!

  379. restless6 says:

    Crap play calling. Crap.

  380. restless6 says:

    Chris Davis…sigh…

  381. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Winston in the gun. WIll throw to the boundary, bobbled? But got about 7 before going out. Soft coverage.

  382. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Give to Wilder, and he’s got about 20.

  383. restless6 says:

    Jake Holland…sigh…

  384. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….New set of downs at the 28. Fake, will be hit throwing, and it’s incomplete!

  385. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    FSU gaining momentum.

  386. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10 FSU. Give to Wilder, dumped at the 32.

  387. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Question: How long can you hold Lawson, before they call it?

  388. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….That’s the end of the third quarter, with Auburn leading 21-13.

  389. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Crunch time!!
    We did not look good in the 3rd.

  390. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….The problem with that bubble screen to Bray is that he keeps cutting it back to the inside. He has had the block to the outside every time, but cuts back into the pursuit.

  391. MechTiger says:

    Our D has been amazing…I knew Ellis had the D on the right track all year, but they were the big question mark in this game. So far, they have been absolutely brilliant and heroic.

  392. friedca says:

    We survived the 3rd. I knew coming out of halftime the 3rd was going to be rough for us. Hopefully Gus will talk to them on the sidelines and everyone will get their heads on straight. Time to take this home. War Eagle.

  393. MechTiger says:

    Well, fortunately I was wrong in my prediction…we’ve held a nice little lead going into the 4th. I really think we’ll do it here.

  394. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Biggest thing in the 4th, we’ve GOT to block, and give Mason and Marshall a chance to win this thing on the ground.

  395. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Possession play, has time, fires over the middle for Benjamin, and KNOCKED AWAY, by Ryan Smith!

  396. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In comes Beatty! Will boom it, Davis takes at the 15, will snake his way to the 26.

  397. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    You just can’t give the D enugh credit in this game. Just like 2010, they are winning this.

  398. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Time for a long, clinching drive, Tigers!

  399. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Come on, Reese! Block Jernigan, and let’s run that ball down their throat!

  400. GRT2BAUTIGER says:

    LET’S GO AU!

  401. dzer13 says:

    lets get back to basics here ;)

  402. gonecoastal says:

    Herbstreet, I’ve liked you since you picked us in 2010. Don’t screw it up now,

  403. audude audude says:

    We need points on this drive, no excuses or penalties, just points!

  404. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers out on offense. Give to Mason outside, will bang to the 34!

  405. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Mason listening to Bo….north and south, north and south

  406. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and short tigers. Mason to the short side, will POWER over the 40!

  407. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Louis on the sweep, will be dumped for a BIG loss.

  408. restless6 says:

    Yikes

  409. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Bad call, 2nd and 17. Here’s a fake to CAP, will fire, picked off, fumbled but FSU gets it back. Well short of Coates and FSU has it at the 45.

  410. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Horrible play call, again, horrible decision, horrible pass.

  411. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Hit to the head of Coates, no call by the B1G zebras.

  412. audude audude says:

    Should’ve called a time out and get the play down….

  413. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Why would you run the speed sweep into the boundary? Freeman on the short dump up to the Auburn 48.

  414. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 2 Seminoles. Freeman on the give, running over the left side for a big gain.

  415. restless6 says:

    Time out!!!

  416. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Give to Freeman again at the Auburn 32, nothing doing!

  417. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 10. THree wides. Here’s the blitz, will get it off, Benjamin has it through the seam, to the Auburn 11.

  418. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs for the SEminoles. Here’s Winston, will dump to the fullback, and he’s got an easy score. Flag?

  419. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Call: unsportsmanlike on McKinzy?

  420. restless6 says:

    Terrible.

  421. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..No, it’s on FSU! 15 yards on the PAT!

  422. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Agauyo will hit the PAT, and with 10:55 left in the game, Auburn’s lead is cut to 21-20.

  423. restless6 says:

    What has happened to the offense?

    This is terrible.

  424. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers need a drive in the worst way!

  425. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Someone go throw some cold water on Gus and wake his ass up!!
    You can either WIN the game or hope the other team loses. And we know how that often ends up.

  426. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s the kickoff. Deep are Bray and Davis are deep. The kick is to Bray in the endzone, touchback.

  427. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers at the 25. Coates is back in. Here’s the keeper, not much, two yards. Jernigan unblocked again.

  428. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Marshall to throw, and Louis has it up at the FSU 47!

  429. restless6 says:

    I hate that stupid chant. I hate it when the Braves do it too. That’s stupid.

  430. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Threw off the backfoot but got away with it

  431. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Whistle? And they stopped us.

  432. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Mason up the gut for two.

  433. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 8 Tigers. Checking off. Here’s the draw, Mason will race down to the 34!

  434. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Quick give Mason, for 4.

  435. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Power set. Here’s a keeper, Marshall will make it down to the 24!

  436. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..New set of downs. Here’s Mason up the gut, to the 20!

  437. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 6 Tigers. Play clock running. Here’s the give, and Mason will power to the 15!

  438. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 2, heavy set. Marshall will give to Mason, down to the 12!

  439. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Clock winds again under seven minutes. New set of downs. Marshall will take, and here’s Mason again, to the ten.

  440. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 8. Huddle. They’ll break it out, and quick snap it in the gun. Keeper, will spin down to the six.

  441. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….3rd and 4. Marshall in the gun. Two back, rollout, Marshall will miss Coates, overthrown.

  442. restless6 says:

    Horrible throw.

  443. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And in comes Parkey, 23 yard attempt. Parkey is up, and good!

  444. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….With 4:45 left in the game, Auburn takes a 24-20 lead!

  445. restless6 says:

    Acid, what needs to happen?

  446. dzer13 says:

    until he proves otherwise, he is still a freshman ;)

  447. dzer13 says:

    D comes up big here. I likey our freshman. CL;)

  448. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey will kick this thing off. It’s two yards deep, and Auburn lets him out. Kermit Whitfield will score on the kick return.

  449. restless6 says:

    Well crap.

  450. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Oh, my. Low kickoff, good blocking, and FSU takes the lead. The PAT is good, and with 4:31 left in the game, FSU leads 27-24.

  451. dzer13 says:

    tired ass defense back on the field though. might be the best thing here

  452. restless6 says:

    What happened to the touchbacks?

  453. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Auburn had ‘em a bit gassed last drive, and they have to come right back out. Can the Tigers come back and take this thing?

  454. dzer13 says:

    this season will have its proper ending. how do you feel ? :)

    WE!!

  455. restless6 says:

    Need a TD. Eff a FG.

  456. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Davis and Bray deep. Touchback.

  457. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….It’s a do or die drive for the Tigers. 4 down territory, for sure!

  458. dzer13 says:

    WE will score a TD!

    WE!!

  459. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Tigers in the gun, Marshall will keep, will lose yardage, blitzing the corner again.

  460. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..2nd and 12. Give to Mason, and he’ll get nothing.

  461. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Tigers on 3rd and long. Clock is down to about 1:30.

  462. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Well, I hate to say it but Gus met his match. He does not have an answer

  463. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Marshall, will fight through traffic, FIRE, and Coates has it!

  464. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Give Mason, will fight to the sidelin, up to the 45!

  465. dzer13 says:

    memorable drive coming here

  466. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I’ve read the clock wrong. Evidently, there is still 2:50 left in the game. I blame ESPN. Jernigan, the monster nose tackle is down on the field.

  467. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..And we’ve gone to burrito commercials on the TV.

  468. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Jernigan would be a big loss for the Seminoles. He’s really been a monster in the middle.

  469. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    FSU does have a great defense, they have made us fight like dogs for everything we get. I hope we can pull this out, but if we do it will on pure will and desire because none of our playcalls is finding a weakness

  470. GRT2BAUTIGER says:

    No one BELIEVED IN US, DO YOU BELIEVE?

  471. dzer13 says:

    that d is gassed. tre will score if we give him the chance

  472. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

  474. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Mason, still running like its his first carry.

  475. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Keeper, Marshall will be buried. Wrong read, there.

  476. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….at the 37, 2nd and 14. Clock running. Marshall takes, give Mason, loose!

  477. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..HE WILL SCORE!!@!!!!!! TD Auburn!

  478. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    OMG…..Mason.

  479. dzer13 says:

    boom. lets see the freshman work now

  480. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……WOOOOOOO! Parkey will boot this up, and THROUGH! With 1:19 left in the game, Auburn retakes the lead, 31-27!

  481. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Note to Nick Marshall….give Mason the friggin rock.

  482. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FSU has two timeouts left, but needs a TD to win.

  483. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Ok, who has the stomach to handle the last 1:19?

  484. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..PLEASSSSSEEE< Parkey? Kick it out of the end zone!

  485. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Parkey, with the weight of the world on his shoulders, and Gus calls Auburn’s first timeout.

  486. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Let’s hope our D-line is fresh. Get AFTER Winston!

  487. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    PLEASE DON”T PLAY PREVENT
    1:19 is a lifetime

  488. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Here’s Parkey, another short one to the two. Whitfield, will be banging up over the 20, reverses field, and Sanders CRACKS him down!

  489. dzer13 says:

    give us the ball back young buck ;_)

  490. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..In the gun, 1:11 left. Winston will fire quickly, and out of bounds is Green at the 27. 7 yard gain.

  491. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….2nd and 3. Winston checking his play. Will dump to Green, and he’s running away, all the way to the Auburn 23. Wow.

  492. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Ouch. FSU in scoring position.

  493. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dump to Freeman, to the 17, timeout called by FSU, with 47 seconds left.

  494. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Holding all day. My god

  495. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Were I Jimbo, at least two throws to the end zone to tall receivers.

  496. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Dee fFord is going to have to save us

  497. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Dump over the middle, Green, dumped at the 12.

  502. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Huge delay

  503. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Wow. 3rd and 8, from the 10. Here we go! Empty set. Winston will take, will throw, incomplete, but a flag on Davis.

  504. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Seventeen seconds, and that will be first and goal at the two.

  505. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Jumbo set. Here’s a fake, and Benjamin catches it for a score on Davis.

  506. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Wow. FSU leads 33-31, 13 seconds left.

  507. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..FSU jumps on the PAT, false start.

  508. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Re-try on the PAT, this one is up and good, and FSU leads 34-31 with 13 seconds left. Is there another miracle in Auburn’s tank?

  509. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I can’t believe they let FSU hold the whole game.and then they call pass interference on that play.

  510. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……Davis and Bray deep. Aguayo to kick off. To Davis 3 yards deep, will be spilled at the 16. One play left.

  514. gonecoastal says:

    Congrats to FSU, and War Damn Eagle!

  515. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ….Just a few plays away. The back breaker was Davis and Smith colliding covering a slant pass, that turned into a 50 yard gain for FSU.

    ….But, I’m am proud of this team! War Eagle! From 0-8, to a 12 win season, and a number two in the nation finish! It’s great to be an Auburn Tiger!

  516. GRT2BAUTIGER says:

    Great Game TIGERS. Hold your head up. AU is back!!!!

  517. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    I can’t believe we blew that game.
    Great game by the defense up until the end.

    Nothing to hang our head about, but that one was there for the taking. Its a shame.

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      War Eagle everybody, great game….or half …and a truly great season. Just wish we could have followed up and finished our business.

      Congrats to FSU. They certainly weren’t the world beaters they claimed to be but they played tough and like champions none the less. A great team, that made a great drive (with a some help from the zebras) to win. No sour grapes though, if you don’t want to get screwed by the refs don’t get into that situation

  518. dzer13 says:

    GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER!

    tough los, but we played our asses off. I’m very proud of our young men!

    WE!

  519. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..Valliant effort by the Tigers. Just too many stalled drives in the 2nd half. We forgot that we’re a power running team, till too late.

  520. MechTiger says:

    Tough loss. Love our team…loved that last 3 sec play at the end too. War Eagle.

  521. dzer13 says:

    dam good FSU team. could we have won? sure we could. they won. give them credit. they beat a team with huge heart and talent. they deserve it.

    Glad I was here to see it :)

    WE!

  522. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    It’s Great To Be an Auburn Tiger! Say It’s Great To Be an Auburn Tiger!!!

    So proud of these guys. War Eagle!!

  523. CapnVegetto says:

    It is as it should be. FSU played the better game and made fewer mistakes. The mistakes we made were HUGE. They didn’t really screw anything up like we did.

    Less mistakes = win. This one will be hard to get over. The better team didn’t win tonight. We blew that game BIGTIME. Should have won. We were better that them.

    Regardless, still proud of the team. One hell of an unbelievable year. And oh yeah, Bama still sucks and we beat their sorry a$$es.

    Congrats FSU.

  524. aubb says:

    dying right now

  525. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    This was a magical season! Great Auburn Tigers! We will be back and we will conquer. Not tonight. Great game by the Noles. So proud of our Tigers!!!

    It’s great to be an auburn tiger!!!

  526. domaucan1 domaucan1 says:

    Congratulations to the Seminoles, but,

    IT’S ALWAYS GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER !!!

    WAR EAGLE !!!

    GO BIG BLUE !!!

    We are back !

  527. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I’m hurting right now for our Tigers, but it was FSU’s night. I’m pulling out of my blues tunez file, and I’m going to replay all this season’s highlights. This team accomplished SO much! I’m damned proud of ‘em!

  528. broken_towel broken_towel says:

    When Marshall gets his throwing straightened out or JJ starts playing, our offense will be AMAZING. I’m not even worried about our D, CEJ knows his stuff.

    • restless6 says:

      Agreed, with some exceptions. Corners are needed badly. I hope those new guys can step right in.

      Some stud receivers are needed too.

      Too bad Sean White can’t start next year.

      Question: Does it seem like there are no bootlegs in the playbook, or can Nick not throw when rolling right or left?

      • broken_towel broken_towel says:

        Nick is bad enough at throwing when he has both feet firmly on the ground. I’m sure when he gets a full offseason they’ll throw in some.

  529. NCTiger NCTiger says:

    Just a couple of plays away from another BCS National Championship – what a season! Way to fight Tigers – you did us all proud…

    War Eagle!
