Swat the Hornets! (Auburn vs. Alabama State Open Thread)

By on September 8th, 2018 in Football Comments Off on Swat the Hornets! (Auburn vs. Alabama State Open Thread)

Another sunset kickoff is at hand
(Photo by Acid Reign)

     War Eagle, everybody! Today marks the 2018 home opener for the Auburn Tigers. Making a short trek up I-85 to play the Tigers tonight are the Alabama State Hornets. For Auburn, this is hopefully the least challenging game on the schedule, and the team can treat this like a glorified practice. For the Hornets, this is a big payday and a chance to show off on national TV.

     Speaking of showing off, I really hope that the TV people show at least some of the ASU band at halftime. It will be a show to be remembered! This game is scheduled to kick off at 6:30 PM Central Time. It will be televised by the SEC Network, possibly on the SEC Alternate channel. Failing that, it will be on ESPN+ for those with a decent streaming option.

     For those attending this game, expect another muggy September evening with highs around 88 at kickoff, going down to about 80 when this one is done. There will be no moon for this night game, but most of a summer-long parade of planets will likely be visible in the night sky over the stadium. Jupiter and Mars will be the stars, with bright Jupiter over the west stands and red Mars over the east after dark.

     Some people call these sorts of games boring, but they have been anything but in recent years. In 2015, Jacksonville State took Auburn to overtime before going into a conservative offensive shell while the Tigers escaped. Last season, Mercer forced 5 turnovers and was threatening late to tie the game before Auburn managed a long drive with a clinching touchdown near the end.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will be at the keyboard for my usual play by play, armed with a cool evening drink and some delicacies such as lightly steamed oysters and other badness. War Eagle! And, beat the Hornets!

….I should go to bed not, but can’t. Samford is till alive in Tallahassee, leading Florida State, 23-21, with about 3 minutes left in the 3rd.`

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:18 pm

…..Outside of the SEC, the league goes 9-2 today, including a big road win against K-State in Manhattan.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:16 pm

…..Arkansas loses, in Ft. Collins, Colorado, 34-27 to Colorado State.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:14 pm

…..I feel great for those Kentucky players. Really loved them knocking off Florida, in the Swamp!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:14 pm

…..Bad news for the SEC, out West. Arkansas hasn’t been able to hold the lead, and Colorado scored with single-seconds left. The Rams lead the Razorbacks 34-27, with only 6 seconds left. Does Chad Morris have a miracle left?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:12 pm

….Ruling, Kentucky scores! Kentucky 27, Florida 16, final! What a historic day for the Wildcats! They haven’t beaten Florida since the probation/Galen Hall days back in 1986. Jerry Claiborne was the KY coach, back then.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:09 pm

….My take is the ball is out, and KY recovered the fumble. Ball was loose before the arm went forward.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:09 pm

…..They will review this, but the best possible outcome for UF is 2nd and 10 at their own 25, down 21-16. It’s looking like Kentucky will get out of Gainesville with a win!

dyingculture dyingculture September 8, 201811:08 pm

nice!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:08 pm

…..Prevent defense. Hit on the rush, ball flutters out, 4 seconds left… Kentucky picks it up, will run to the goal line, and in. Official call, TD KENTUCKY!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:07 pm

…..Hook and ladder time, now. Florida is 75 yards away.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:06 pm

……Thrown out of bounds, with nine seconds left.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:06 pm

….Florida trails 21-16, has no timeouts left, and only 29 seconds. Trips right. Dumped to the back Davis, down at the 25, stops the clock.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:05 pm

….No, the six.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:05 pm

….Muffed at the 15, but UF recovers at the ten!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:05 pm

,,,,,Kentucky can take a delay of game, and run the game clock down to about 37 seconds.Punts…

dyingculture dyingculture September 8, 201811:05 pm

florida has won 31 in a row vs. kentucky.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:04 pm

…..Snell, nothing. KY will have to punt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:04 pm

…..3rd and 7, and Florida can’t stop it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:04 pm

…..Here’s Snell, forward off the snap for about 2 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:03 pm

…..2nd and 9. HIstory possibly in the making, in Gainesville.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:03 pm

…..Wildcat snap for Snell, no gain, and UF takes their final timeout with 1:58 left in that one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:02 pm

…..Snell reverses field, and has the first down, and a whole lot more! Goes out at the UF 45!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:01 pm

…..Snell doesn’t get it, but it’s 3rd and 1. KY can run it down under 2:30. UF has only one timeout left, trailing 21-16.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:01 pm

…..I’m thinking UF doesn’t have it, this time. Just got flagged for 12 on the field on D. All Kentucky has to do is get a first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201811:00 pm

…..Auburn will end up with gaudy stats in this one, but I’m not sure what we learned. Lots of young players got good snaps against a lesser opponent that played their hearts out. Kudos to Alabama State. They did not play scared, and wow, is their band awesome!

dyingculture dyingculture September 8, 201810:59 pm

Just like Clemson backed into a typical Clemson win, looks like Kentucky is getting set to lose the Kentucky way….

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:56 pm

…..And it is over! Auburn defeats ASU, 63-9!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:56 pm

…..Down to about 42, knee Adams, and they get it spotted quickly. One more snap will be necessary.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:55 pm

…..Victory formation, Devin Adams takes a knee, and we’ll have to snap it one more time, as the clock winds down under a minute.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:54 pm

……Craven to boot it away. Griffin will fair catch at the ASU 47. MUCH better job, this time.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:54 pm

3rd and 5 for ASU. Davis will swing to Cook, will not bring it in. Stops the clock with 1:35 left, 4th and 5.

dyingculture dyingculture September 8, 201810:53 pm

let’s have a safety like the end of that one game a couple years ago.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:53 pm

…..2nd and 11. Davis takes, gives to Cook, will get out to the nine.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:52 pm

…..ASU takes over at the ASU 5 yard line, with 2:50 left. Give Jackson, lost a yard!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:51 pm

……Clock will wind under 3 minutes. Give to Tolbert, did not make it. Ball goes over.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:51 pm

…..Auburn appears to be going on 4th and 1.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:51 pm

…..3rd and 1. Fakes, Adams will be short at the 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:50 pm

…..Tolbert again, gets to the 5, a yard short.

dyingculture dyingculture September 8, 201810:50 pm

it’s hard to say it’s really running up the score when the #5 RB is scoring touchdowns.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:50 pm

…..At the nine. Adams gives to Tolvert, hammers for 8!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:49 pm

….12 men on the field.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:49 pm

…..And the Auburn offense goes back on. Devin Adams in at QB for the Tigers, and ASU gets flagged.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:48 pm

…..Auburn has it, at the ASU 14!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:48 pm

…..Kickoff to the two, fumble at the 15!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:47 pm

….Some folks would probably call it running the score up. But I like that Gus and Chip are still running the offense in a non-vanilla way, and letting the backups play. This can only pay dividends down the line.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:46 pm

…..ASU is very gassed, at this point. Let’s hope we haven’t caused them to lose the next 3 or 4 games…

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:45 pm

…..We’ll have a liner from from Shannon, bangs it off the upright, but good anyway. With 5:10 left in the game, Auburn leads, 63-9!

meathead530 September 8, 201810:45 pm

I like Cord

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:45 pm

…..And another… TOUCHDOWN, AUBURN!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:44 pm

…..Sandberg with the give to Malik Miller, will POWER in!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:44 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers, looking to score again. Here’s a fake, keeper, will go out at the 16!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:43 pm

…..New set of downs. Three wides. Keeper, Sandberg, to the 27!

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 201810:42 pm

Clemson dodged a bullet and won their ONE SEC game for the year til playoffs. Now we hear how great they are. Lol. Would love for them to play Texas AM, LSU, ALABAMA, AUBURN in one season and see how “great” they are. Gimme a break.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:42 pm

…..1st and 10. Sandberg’s first pass, screen to Cedric Chambers, to the ASU 43!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:42 pm

…..Auburn takes over at their 38!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:41 pm

…..2nd and 4 ASU. Jumbo left. Motion left. Davis under pressure, will fire deep, and Jamien Sherwood picks it off!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:41 pm

…..Davis swings it out to Cook, got six.

dyingculture dyingculture September 8, 201810:40 pm

Clemson is doing to A&M exactly what they did to Auburn. And shows exactly why we are so sick of Clemson. Clemson is going to win this game, a game that A&M should have won. Clemson was ahead the whole game, yet squeaked through the victory and the margin was not because of their talent – just every little break went their way.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:40 pm

…..Here is the boot, and touchback once again. for ASU.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:39 pm

…..Texas A&M drives late, but misses on a 2-pointer, late. Clemson 28, TAMU 26.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:37 pm

…..Shivers runs angry. Reminds me a lot of Brad Lester. Not the biggest guy, but hits the hole quick, and runs with attitude!

meathead530 September 8, 201810:36 pm

I like Shivers!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:36 pm

…..The PAT is up and good by Shannon, and with 8:23 left, Auburn leads, 56-9!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:36 pm

…..TOUCHDOOWN, AUBURN!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:36 pm

…..Sandberg gets the play. Give Shivers, will WALK in!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:35 pm

….First and goal!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:35 pm

…..New set of downs, as Auburn runs clock. Three wides, give Shivers, cuts back, and will finally be pushed out at the TWO!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:34 pm

…..New set of downs. changing the play. Pistol set, Shivers will have a hole, bangs down to the 28!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:33 pm

…..Pistol set for Sandberg. Give to Shivers, will forge for ten!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:32 pm

…..There have been some shockers today, but nothing like what is going on in Tallahassee, tonight! The Samford Bulldogs lead Florida State near the half, 23-14, and appear to be poised to score again. Wow. The Willie Taggert Era starts off with a couple of whimpers. No wonder Jimbo left!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:30 pm

…..Craven in to punt. Tutt deep, short punt, will hit at midfield, to the 46 of Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:30 pm

…..Davis will throw, too far out of bounds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:29 pm

…..Leggete picks up a couple, will bring up 3rd and 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:29 pm

…..Here’s Davis, giving it for about 4 yards. 4 lost fumbles, for the Tigers, but only one to a guy regularly in the playing rotation.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:27 pm

…..Garbage time continues, with 12:28 left in the ballgame. Auburn leads, 49-9. As I mentioned before the game, that 63-point spread in this game was never in danger.

meathead530 September 8, 201810:27 pm

Sloppy freshman!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:26 pm

…..Officials will move the ball back to the 13, but still ASU’s ball.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:25 pm

……Sandberg checks off. Give on the sweep, big gain by Matthew Hill, but had the ball taken away inside the ten, and ASU returns out to the 20. Ugh.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:24 pm

….That’s big Ricky Haley. That will help Auburn, up front.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:24 pm

…..3rd and 3, possession play. And another ASU player comes up gimpy.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:23 pm

…..Brings up 2nd and 3. Shivers will give to Shivers, and nothing doing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:23 pm

….Out at the 38. Sandberg will will take, and will fake, and keep, to the 31.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:22 pm

…..Give Shivers, and he’s loos, to the 35 of ASU!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:21 pm

….Checking the SEC scoreboard, Texas A&M, hanging tough with Clemson. They trail, 28-20, with about 3 minutes left.
Mizzou 40, Wyoming 10, late.
SHOCKER! Kentucky leads Florida, 21–10, late in the 3rd!
Arkansas 27, Colorado State 17, starting the 4th quarter
LSU 31, USL, 0, final.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:18 pm

…..That ends the 3rd quarter, with Auburn leading, 49-9 over Alabama State.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:18 pm

….No, about 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:18 pm

…..Trips in the boundary, Shivers gets 7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:17 pm

…..Cord Sandberg in at QB!. Auburn emptying the bench.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:17 pm

…..Whitlow and Shivers deep, as ASU kicks off. Pooch kick, and Spencer Night will get about 15 yards, bulling ahead!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:16 pm

…..We can bash on a 3rd team Auburn corner, but that play would have never been made if the Auburn punt return man had not made a disastrous play earlier.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:15 pm

…..PAT is up and good, and Auburn still leads, 49-9, with 37 seconds left in the 3rd quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:15 pm

…..Neither Auburn defender turned around, and toast. That was McCreary, again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:14 pm

……3rd and 24. Trips right. Davis will just chunk it, caught in double coverage, touchdown.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:14 pm

…..Jibunor with the sack, lost 15!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:13 pm

…..2nd and 10. Davis having trouble lining them up. Rolling, will be SAAAACKED, and a BIG loss!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:13 pm

…..Fake, firing on the fade, NOOOO! McCreary on the coverage, and did a great job!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:13 pm

…..Would have been a back breaker, in a closer game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:12 pm

…..On 4th and 1, Craven in to punt. Griffin King deep, muffed, and ASU recovers at the Auburn 16. Yuck.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:11 pm

….Brings up 3rd and 5. Will Davis be allowed to throw? Trips left. Swing pass, right, short by a yard!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:10 pm

…..2nd and 7. Here’s Davis, gives to Farmer, to the AUburn 49.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:10 pm

…..New set of downs for ASU. Give Farmer, will get maybe 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:09 pm

….2nd and 6, give Farmer, and he’s loose to the ASU 46.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:09 pm

……Davis in at QB? And keeps for a decent gain.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:08 pm

…..LOL, at the Granite Rock skillet commercial on the TV. Light skillets, you’ll never get even heat, and they will warp on a gas stove. Yes, I’ve had a few. Make that sticky stir fry in that thing, and you won’t be too sad if it gets ruined, and you have to throw it out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:07 pm

…..That TD drive was important, in several ways. First, you are looking at almost all backups. And then, Gus was NEVER going to allow a pass play. Auburn got that score on the ground, with guys that didn’t even play much, last year!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:05 pm

…..Ian Shannon will hit the extra point! With 4:52 left in the 3rd, Auburn extends the lead to 49-2!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:04 pm

…..Missed a few plays, but on 3rd and goal, Harold Joiner takes the wildcat snap, bides his time, and walks INNNNN!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:03 pm

…..2nd and 7. Under center. Give to Shivers, will crash inside the ten, to the seven!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:02 pm

…..New set of Auburn downs! Give Joiner, got about 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:02 pm

…..Brings up 4th and 3. Wildcat? joiner takes the snap, keeps, he will get HIT, but gets the first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:01 pm

…..3rd and 4, possession play. Willis will take, and will keep, doesn’t quite get there.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:01 pm

…..2nd and 5. Give Shivers, nothing there, makes it to the 29.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:00 pm

…..New set of downs, Shivers off tackle right, leeeeans forward for five.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:00 pm

…..Willis still in at QB. Under center, give Shivers, rams for about 12!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:58 pm

……38 yard punt, 31 yard return. Might as well have gone for it! Not a great punt by Craven, finally. Auburn sets up in good field position, with a 42-2 lead, with 8:51 left in the third.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:57 pm

…..Craven to punt, Tutt deep. Tutt takes at the 20, and has room! Up to midfield! Made the first guy miss.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:56 pm

…..Rocker will throw a short dart to Gray, and gets about 10, only half of what he needed.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:56 pm

….3rd and 20, what will they call?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:56 pm

…..Not a dirty hit. Here’s Rocker throwing up the sideline on the wheel, and knocked away by KJ Britt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:55 pm

…..From the replay, it looked like maybe a shot to the ribs.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:54 pm

…..And that guy isn’t getting up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:54 pm

…..1st and 20, at the ASU 31. Rocker fires left, and tattooed by Sherwood, ball out, incomplete!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:54 pm

…..ASU flagged, and will lose 10 on a hold.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:53 pm

…..Make that Asa Martin, not Cam Martin, who still has a hold on his job, I would think.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:53 pm

…..Auburn operating mostly with backups, moves to midfield, and then a Kam Martin fumble, unforced. Just dropped it. ASU has it at midfield.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:52 pm

…..Missed a series. Auburn kicked off for a touchback, and lots of subs in on defense, and gave up a couple of 10 yard-plus runs to the boundary. Things stiffened, in the Auburn end, with a Big Kat swat-down, and a 4th down sack by Jordyn Peters, on the nickelback blitz.

Squeakywheel September 8, 20189:48 pm

meathead530 September 8, 20189:42 pm

I wish TAMU would beat Clemson.

Will KY finally beat the gators?

Samford leads FSU at end of 1Q

meathead530 September 8, 20189:37 pm

Nice bands

Squeakywheel September 8, 20189:34 pm

Thanks

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:31 pm

…..Auburn was backed up to the 4, and ran that fake-the-give, fake-the-speed-sweep, then throw play, right on the Auburn goal line with Willis. AND, left an unblocked weakside linebacker that Willis was likely supposed to read. Willis never had a chance. He made the two fakes, and then spun right into the face of an unblocked rusher.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:30 pm

…..Malik Willis was in on the safety. I’m not sure it wasn’t really a bad play call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:29 pm

…..JaTarvious Whitlow leads all rushers with 122 yards on 14 carries, but has a lost fumble in the game. Freshman Anthony Schwartz has 2 Auburn touchdowns, the first on a double move 57 yard bomb, and the second on a 23 yard speed sweep.

Squeakywheel September 8, 20189:29 pm

Ok – I had to step away – which QB allowed a safety?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:27 pm

…..Auburn has 335 offensive yards in the first half, to just 103 for ASU. The majority of ASU’s yard have come against the Auburn secondary, but Daniel Thomas has been a menace, with a pick six and a second interception on a quick screen wide.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:26 pm

…..Halftime stats are brutal. ASU has just 4 rushing yards, and 8 penalties for 62 yards. The bright spot has been punter Anthony Craven, who is averaging 49.8 yards per punt on 8 punts, for ASU.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:24 pm

…..What’s cool to me is that we were told that there was no way we’d see Will Hastings or Eli Stove before November, this year. Both got in the game, in the first half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:23 pm

…..Whitlow is less polished than KJ, but he’s got that mentality that the first guy there isn’t going to get him down. Love that!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:22 pm

…..At the half, Auburn leads Alabama State, 42-2, and we’re pretty deep into the bench already, on both sides.

meathead530 September 8, 20189:22 pm

Whitlow reminds me of Kerryon.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:22 pm

…..25 seconds left in the half, 3rd and Eli Stove checks into the game. Willis, will run, will bull to the 44 of ASU. Auburn can let this run out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:21 pm

…..Malik Willis on 2nd and 9. Will fire left, behind Seth Williams.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:21 pm

…..Clock under a minute.

meathead530 September 8, 20189:21 pm

I wonder if College Game Day will be at Auburn next week?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:20 pm

….Hurry up, Whitlow on the give, nothing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:20 pm

…..Give Whitlow, breaking tackles, finally yanked down at the 48!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:20 pm

…..Auburn has a dive up the middle to Whitlow, got 7, and now Driscoll is limping off, with 1:28 left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:19 pm

…..Goodness! Craven with another great punt, no one there to cover it inside the Auburn 5, touchback. 62 yards. Whew!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:18 pm

…..Corner blitz, and there was nothing there, with Igbinoghene making the play.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:18 pm

…..3rd and long. Rocker will be SAAAAAAACKED!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:17 pm

…..Rocker takes, give Farmer, loses a bunch more!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20189:17 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20188:30 pm

…..Davis retained possession, but a flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20188:30 pm

…..Craven in to punt, hammers it. Davis takes it at the six, will slip away, out to the 21, and fumbles?

…..Carlson will boot short to the two, Gray weaving, stretching, will go all the way, but a flag.

…..Ole Miss punches another score in, and they now lead Southern Illinois 62-41, with twelve minutes left. Check off another victory for the SEC, I think!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20187:19 pm

…..3rd and 4 Rebs, and they fail to connect on a fade, but SIU was offside again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20187:18 pm

…..Make it the 13. Ole Miss can clinch the game with a score, here.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20187:17 pm

…..Free play, as SIU jumped. Ole Miss chucks up the deep ball, and has first and goal at the nine.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20187:11 pm

…..Weird Tiger Walk, today. Evidently, the entire team is wearing Navy blazers, and tan khaki pants. I wonder who dreamed up that awful color combination?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20187:09 pm

…..SIU was driving, but an Ole Miss pick six, on an ill-advised throwback pass, give the Rebel Landsharks a 56-41 lead.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20187:03 pm

…..Not much news from the Auburn camp, 30 minutes from kickoff. Most notable item is that apparently Arryn Siposs will start as the punter, today. Let’s hope he’s not needed much!

…..Ole Miss clings to a 49-41 lead over Southern Illinois, trying to hang on, with 2:26 left in the 3rd quarter.

…..Georgia has gone to Columbia, and walloped South Carolina, 41-17. That one is a final. Alabama leads Arkansas State 57-7, late. Tennessee is up 45-0 on East Tennessee State, with about 10 minutes left in the 3rd. All of these games are decided, or pretty much.

you watching Colorado/Nebraska? crazy game there too.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20186:49 pm

only because Salukis dropped a pass for a potential score.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20186:48 pm

…..Ole Miss did finally bow up near their goal line. The Salukis have to settle for a field goal. Ole Miss 42, Southern Illinois 41, with 5 minutes left in the third.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20186:45 pm

meanwhile…..Ole Miss is a MESS!

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20186:45 pm

well….is UGA that good or is the rest of the east that bad? It does appear that the east will be weak once again. UGA will have a test, no doubt, going to Baton Rouge.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20186:37 pm

…..It’s pretty amazing how much better UGA is, than South Carolina. This was supposed to be a defacto playoff game for the SEC East title. South Carolina isn’t there, yet. Who else? Mullen’s Gators? Drew Lock and Missouri?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20186:29 pm

…..Tennessee cruising, leading East Tennessee State 38-0, at the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20186:28 pm

…..Ole Miss is back out front on Southern Illinois, 42-38. But can the Salukis be stopped by this defense?

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20186:27 pm

…..Funny anecdote, on that Cornhusker matchup! Old habits die hard. I went up and down the Big-12 scoreboard, trying to find the current box on that game. Ha! Neither team has been in the Big-12, for a number of years!

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20186:01 pm

Good back and forth game out of SEC conference. Colorado at Nebraska.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20186:00 pm

…..It’s getting ugly in Columbia. Lots of coverage busts, and Georgia is out to a 34-10 lead with 9:12 left in the 3rd quarter. This one is essentially over, the way the UGA defense is playing.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20186:00 pm

UGA scores. 34-10 with 9:12 left in 3rd.

South Carolina wearing down quickly. UGA overmatched for them

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:55 pm

…..The Salukis score again, and make it look easy. Southern Illinois 31, Ole Miss 28, with about 4 minutes left in the half.

……National surprises today…
ECU 21, North Carolina 19, at the half.
South Florida 49, Georgia Tech 38, final. Might the modern-day wishbone be on its last legs?
Nebraska 21, Colorado 19, at the half.
Eastern Michigan 20, Purdue 19. Ouch, B1G!
Washington 10, North Dakota 0, late first quarter.
Come on, Huskies! Blow this out, and help our strength of schedule!
Oregon 49, UCLA 21, final. The Chip Kelly administration goes to 0-2, in LA.
Houston 45, Arizona 18. Ouch, Kevin Sumlin! Usually Sumlin’s teams are unbeatable in September, and wait till later to fade like a bad T-shirt!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:27 pm

…..I had figured that the Ole Miss defense gave up points last week because Texas Tech’s offense was good. Southern Illinois is putting that to the lie, today. The Salukis are hanging with Ole Miss, driving again, down 28-24 late in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:23 pm

…..I just read news that Auburn was initially favored over ASU by 68 points, but the line is now down to 63. Historically, the biggest Gus Malzahn margin of victory was in 2013, with a 62-3 victory over Western Carolina. It is important to note that Auburn had a chance to score late, and Guz had the offense deliberately take a delay of game down near the goal line, to keep from scoring again. Next biggest spread was 55-0, against Alabama A&M in 2016. Folks, Auburn isn’t likely to cover 63, either.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:20 pm

…..Georgia did convert the field goal drive, and leads South Carolina 20-10 at the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:20 pm

…..Alabama is mashing Arky State, 40-0, late in the first half.
Tennessee leads East Tennessee State, 10-0, in a storm delay in Knoxville.
And…. what’s this? An Ole Miss team that looked really good last week is in a dogfight with Southern Illinois, leading only 28-24, with about five minutes till halftime.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:17 pm

…..Finals thus far… Vanderbilt 41, Nevada 10. Mississippi State 31, Kansas State 10. That’s an impressive win on the road, for the Bulldogs.

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 20185:16 pm

…..Checking in! South Carolina has evidently rallied, and trails Georgia 17-10, with just seconds left in the first half. Georgia is trying to get in field goal range.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:56 pm

UGA offense scores in four plays. 14-0. USC seems confused and overmatched in the early goings.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:44 pm

UGA player drops ball before crossing the plain and NOBODY notices. Lol

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:44 pm

UGA scores first on interception.

HOT and HUMID in South Carolina! 93 degrees

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:29 pm

Kickoff time for Georgia at South Carolina. Let’s see who is legit.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:26 pm

Fitzgerald lead his MSU team over Kansas state, 31-10. MSU running back, Hill, looks to be a real deal. Keep an eye out on him.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:22 pm

Looks like USF quarterback Blake Barnett has found his place after leaving Bama to go to Arizona state only to leave there and go to USF. Whew!

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:20 pm

Nope….they call TD (disagree). USF up 49-38 over Ga Tech with 2:13 left

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 20183:18 pm

Looks like he was down on the one yard line.

South Florida on verge of beating a power five team in Ga Tech.

wareagle3020 wareagle3020 September 8, 201812:28 pm

Miss St has Fitzgerald back running around after that gruesome injury last year…..but for the moment, he is still shaking off the cobwebs in his passing game against Kansas State. Slow start so far and offensive line looks really shaky and penalty flags often. Not real impressive so far.

…..I worked all night last night, so I will try to get a nap before jumping into football banter, mid-afternoon. War Eagle!

Acid Reign Acid Reign September 8, 201810:32 am

…..And we are live! This evening, I think we can agree that the biggest challenge to these Auburn players will be themselves. Auburn tended to take it easy in these sorts of games, last season. We’ll get a look at the composition of this year’s team, today.
