Tame the Tide! (Auburn at Alabama Open Thread)

By on November 24th, 2018 in Football 9 Comments »

Auburn takes on the defending national champions today
(Photo by John David Mercer/USA TODAY Sports)

     War Eagle, everybody! This afternoon, the Auburn Tigers travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to take on the the hated Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl. It is time for the biggest rivalry in college football to play out once again.

     This game will kick off at 2:30 PM Central Time, and it will be nationally televised on CBS. I’ll be at the keyboard with hot coffee and a big bowl of Chex Mix for this one and will have a full play by play.

     After a rainy Black Friday evening, skies should be most clear by Saturday afternoon, and temps will be temperate, in the mid 60s at kickoff. We’ll have sunset during the second half, and it will be roughly 60 degrees F by game’s end.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard this morning and afternoon, commenting on play around the SEC and the nation. We’ll take on the Tide and never give up hope! I’ll be here to help pull my Tigers through this contest. War Eagle, and let’s beat Alabama!

…..I am going to switch over to an old DVD, and try to let it all go, for the rest of the evening. I did give up early, on South Carolina. They continue to make of a fight of it, over in Clemson. I’m kinda football saturated at this point, and filled up with the last of the turkey… My time is up. I thank you for yours! Grades, tomorrow afternoon.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20189:03 pm

…..I am consoling myself watching Muschamp and Coach O melt down under disappointing performances. Jimbo’s team is really punking Coach O.

easyedwin easyedwin November 24, 20188:49 pm

I have not had a drink all day today. 52-21 is sobering!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20188:37 pm

Auburn Football has some soul searching to do after this season. The AD has probably turned his phone off tonight. The Auburn call in show is intense tonight. I feel that Chip Lindsay will take the fall for this season. The OL was not as good this year, but Stidham also regressed. Gus threw in the towel tonight. It was a very disappointing season.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20188:19 pm

…..I find it interesting that national talking heads are pontificating that the SEC is down, and is no longer the top league in college football. I just went through the standings, and looked for myself. With Vanderbilt’s win today, the SEC has 11 bowl-eligible teams, out of 14 total. The nearest competitor is the ACC, with 9. No one else has as many.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:48 pm

…..South Carolina looks a lot like US. Playing hard, playing inspired, but they are starting to get ground up like hamburger. They have no answer for the Clemson offense.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:47 pm

…..Even if you wanted to put Petrino’s reputation aside, What I looked at is that this guy is not personable at all. How is he going to lure recruits? Petrino solved that issue by job-hopping. He’s an awesome play-caller. Left some dumpster fires behind. Louisville/Strong era, Falcons misery, an Arkansas fiasco that still hasn’t recovered, and even Western Kentucky is suffering from his tenure. Petrino stayed too long at Louisville, and it caught up with him.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:43 pm

…..Sometimes you just have to ride it out. In 2008, I was all in on growth stocks, saving for my retirement. Took an absolute bath, and lost about a third of a life savings. Did not change tactics… I am diversifying finally, ten years later. I would have missed out on the longest boom in a century, if I had bailed out.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:28 pm

Sounds like fun!

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:27 pm

Hey buddy, that reminds me… imma going to the AU – NC State game on December 19th in Raleigh, NC. I might let you guys know how that goes.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:26 pm

At least I can drown my misery in some Auburn basketball.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:24 pm

Back in the day, Ben Affleck bought Jennifer Lopez a golden thrown like you said.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:20 pm

I think I would have got. A golden toilet along with the sports car

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:19 pm

Anyone one getting 600,000 a game is on a thrown.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:17 pm

Malzahn, sitting on his thrown…..

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:16 pm

If Auburn was going to slum they would have had Petrino a while back. Bo Nix will be on campus soon and his dad will soon follow. Native Son… hierarchy to the thrown of Malzahn!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:15 pm

I have always enjoyed your analysis Acid, win or lose. I hope that Auburn remembers this game next season.

zotus zotus November 24, 20187:15 pm

Wake up guys and face reality.

Everything ol’ Gus knows about coaching Offensive football, ol’ Gus learned by coaching offensive football in High School.

Ol’ Gus’ Offense will get you beat in the SEC.

Ol’ Gus is out of his depth in this league.

WDE!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:14 pm

Yes. Saban could not hire Freeze due to SEC rules. Freeze’s daughter is now a freshman at Auburn and he has been in town a few times. A friend saw them at the Waffle House. Where do we go from here? I will just have to grin and bear it as I deal with my Bama family members and UGA friends.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:13 pm

Stidahm’ numbers and rankings are just like Matt Ryan with Falcons , they look good on paper but they don’t equate to wins and in tough games folds.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:12 pm

I suspect that the roughing penalties against Bama were on purpose. I was guessing that they figured that Stidham would get all squirrelly if he got punched in the mouth a few times.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:11 pm

…..I’ll have to watch this hot mess again tomorrow, but I thought that the offensive line played pretty well, except for a few snaps. Stidham can’t blame his struggles this game, on them. On the scheme, perhaps. Definitely on another half dozen dropped balls.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:11 pm

Auburn will never hire freeze after Alabama got declined that idea.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:10 pm

Stidahm at his best can’t perform on par with Ga, Al, or Clemson w/o a dynamic running back.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:10 pm

Supposedly Saban kicked around the idea of hiring Freeze, so I can’t say that Freeze’s bad reputation should stop Auburn from hiring him.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:09 pm

I do agree. Also, Jarrett Stidham did not perform well.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:08 pm

…..Yeah, dyingculture. I think Lashlee left because he knew he’d never develop his own reputation, under Gus.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:07 pm

…..I feel for Chip, if that is true. I really don’t think he’s been the issue. What we saw this year was happening way back in 2015, and is just a continuation.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:07 pm

I think that Hugh Freeze will be getting a call soon.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:07 pm

(that was a snarky comment, in case you didn’t know)

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:06 pm

… Malzhan was meddled with, and he had to let go of Rhett Lashlee. The offense hasn’t been the same since.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:06 pm

Bo Nix and Patrick Nix … bring it on…Malzahn set back and shut up

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:06 pm

Chip Lindsay could be gone tonight.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:06 pm

…..If Gus is coming back, he has to call it as he wishes. If that’s Hugh Freeze, so be it. The idea of hiring Patrick Nix so that his kid will sign, smacks a little too much like Houston Nutt, to me.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:06 pm

Yes. Gus will be back for at least another year. He will need 10 wins to survive.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:05 pm

I was thinking the same thing aboout OSU. The lopsided final score will probably be the excuse the committee needs to put OSU in the playoff, even though they probably don’t deserve it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:05 pm

…..I’ve seen administrative meddling work just one time, when Pat Dye was forced to fire Frank Orgel and Jack Crowe. Auburn went on to win 3 SEC titles. After that, Bowden was called out and meddled with, and left a mess. Tuberville was meddled with, and it ended up with Petrino and Jetgate.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20187:04 pm

I think we will get a bowl win. At 7-5, we will probably get a matchup where we far outclass the opponent talent-wise.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20187:03 pm

I doubt if Oklahoma could stop Bama’s passing attack. West Virginia put up 704 yards last night. If Ohio State wins the Big 10, they may get into the playoff.

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:03 pm

Malzahn is here to stay (2 years)!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:03 pm

…..My thought is that the administration handed Gus this big contract, and we will have him back next year. That’s been announced publically by Athletic Director Greene. How much meddling will happen, though?

auburnelvis November 24, 20187:02 pm

Will Malzahn get his first bowl win other than Birmingham Bowl?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:02 pm

…..There will be some interesting debates coming, on coaching changes. I will put my two cents in, as well.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20187:00 pm

…..I like watching college football, and will watch with interest. But no, I won’t be pulling for either team in the SEC Title game.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:59 pm

Yes. Auburn has some recruiting to do. The Auburn call in show on espnau.com will be interesting tonight. I cannot pull for either team next week in the SEC trophy game. Both fan bases have no class at all.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:59 pm

…..We will see if anyone else can stop them. I’m betting Alabama/Oklahoma would be interesting…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:58 pm

…..Auburn tallied 281 total yards, Bama 498. Alabama passed for 377 yards, and did not have a turnover.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:57 pm

Seasonal affective disorder- a mood disorder characterized by depression that occurs at the same time every year! Thanks Gus

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:56 pm

Hate that post game cheer

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:56 pm

…..Alabama beats Auburn, 52-21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:56 pm

…..Will be one more play. Willis will give to Shivers, will get the first, and this one will wind down.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:55 pm

Hats off to Bama – they’ve got the talent and the coaches

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:55 pm

…..Clock under a minute. Power set. Here is a fake, Willis, will get nine, and that may do it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:55 pm

…..3rd and 1. Two back, tight end. Finally. Motion across. Power play to Shivers, will pick up the first.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:54 pm

…..2nd and 7. Motion in. Willis fakes, pumps, fights to midfield.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:53 pm

…..At the Auburn 43. Malik Willis in. Trips right. Fakes, keeps, cuts back, and he’ll get about 3 after running nearly the width of the field and back.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:53 pm

….Christian Tutt, tripped at the 42.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:52 pm

…..Alabama will punt from the 18.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:52 pm

…..Clock still running. Alabama will milk that clock. Hurts, will scramble, stopped a couple of yards short by Darrell Williams.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:51 pm

…..No call, 3rd and 5.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:51 pm

Painful to watch. On to next season. Changes have to be coming.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:51 pm

…..2nd and 8 Bama. Give Harris, facemask? Got to the 15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:51 pm

…….Alabama takes over with 4:33 left. Hurts gives to Harris, for two.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:50 pm

The “Dixieland Delight” song went sideways tonight.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:50 pm

…..Here’s Siposs. Out of bounds, at the nine.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:49 pm

…..Now 3rd and 9. 4 wides. Blitz, tried to dump it to Whitlow, incomplete. Dropped.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:49 pm

…..3rd and 4. Trips right. Hurry up! What are you doing? Delay of game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:48 pm

…..Stove in motion, fake, and Stidham keeps, dumped for a loss at the 37.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:47 pm

….2nd and 2 for Auburn, after Stove got a catch.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:46 pm

Auburn could have beat them by 100 and it wouldn’t have changed anything.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:46 pm

…..1st and 10 at the Tide 43, and Auburn has to burn a timeout.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:45 pm

….Bama bails us out with a roughing the passer flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:45 pm

…..A terrrible throw by Stidham, WAY underthrew Canella, should have been picked.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:44 pm

…..Poor, poor call, stopping the clock for Bama.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:44 pm

After last year this game has less significance than ever! Except for our emotional stability.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:44 pm

…..2nd and 8. trips left. Throws the ball over the head of Whitlow, incomplete.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:43 pm

It’s one thing to lose to your arch rival; allowing them to score over 50 points is entirely different

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:43 pm

….Shivers on the sweep, run down after 2.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:43 pm

Next year Bryant and Nix with his dad as offensive coordinator. Malzahn will be here!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:43 pm

…..Troxell is indeed, in the game at left tackle.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:42 pm

…..3rd and inches. Here’s Whitlow, all the way to the 40.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:42 pm

Announcers are debating Stidham’s future. I can’t imagine him sticking around for this cluster another year.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:41 pm

It was over after the 75 yard td was called back!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:41 pm

My HS football coach was on the 1957 team. Auburn won 40-0. The Auburn money people will not like the results of this season.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:41 pm

…..8:35 remains, in this root-canal of a game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:40 pm

…..And Prince Tega Wanagho is down, favoring a knee. That would be a big loss. I’m guessing Austin Troxell would come in?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:40 pm

…..2nd and 2. Auburn taking forever to get a play in. Three wides. Draw, Whitlow, will fight for one. That fooled no one. Good individual effort.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:39 pm

Bama and UGA will only get better next season. Auburn has a long way to go to catch up. Gus is trying to run clock.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:39 pm

…..Auburn will start at the 25. Stidham is still in, huddle. Schwartz on the speed sweep, goes out at the 33.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:38 pm

…..Worst margin isn’t in danger here, I don’t think. If Bama gets another TD, most given up to Bama is in danger.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:38 pm

As bad as this looks it’s the best we have looked which is sickening.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:37 pm

Looks like they are a threat to smash that record tonight

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:36 pm

….1948, in fact. The Earl Brown years….

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:36 pm

….Worst was 55-0, back in the late 1940s.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:35 pm

Auburn don’t need a backup qb, put another RB on rooster!Cause that’s all backup does anyway.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:35 pm

Hey Acid – what is the worst all-time score Bama has put up on us?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:35 pm

…..Whew. Bama covers the spread, if this stands. Bulovas is up and good, and with 9:29 left, Alabama leads, 52-21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:34 pm

…..Hurts fakes, throws, and hits Waddle, and gone for the score. Wow.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:34 pm

I do not feel that Stidham will be back next season.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:34 pm

…..No matter if I was Saban, or Malzahn, my starter gets benched, now. More football to be played this year, and this game is over.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:33 pm

…..Alabama takes over at their 47, with 9:39 left in the game. Alabama leads Auburn, 45-21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:32 pm

…..Even read correctly, if Stidham puts that ball higher, only Tucker Brown could get it, or nobody.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:32 pm

Let’s see who they put in at QB.. is it clear the bench time?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:32 pm

…..Read the tight end throwback. Another play Auburn has run several times this year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:31 pm

…..3rd and 3. Huddle, under center. Fakes, lobs one, and Jennings picks it off. Terrible pass.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:31 pm

Tough to watch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:30 pm

…..2nd and 7. Trips left, give Shivers, got about 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:30 pm

…..New set of downs. Trips left. Give Shivers, they are going to kill that young man with no lead blockers.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:30 pm

Agree with your mother Randy… Malzahn should go because he can’t recruit and that idiot president who gave him an extension should go too – malpractice

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:29 pm

……Targeting, no call. Double twins on 3rd and 6. Stidham will all day, runs, and somehow got the first!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:29 pm

……2nd and 8. Huddle, motion out. Give Shivers, hit in the head, for 2.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:29 pm

Hopefully Stidahm will go and play for his father n law , we tired of him.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:28 pm

…..1st and 10. Give, Shivers won’t get much. No lead blocker, once again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:28 pm

…..3rd and 1. Shotgun? Motion in. Give Whitlow gets it on second effort.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:27 pm

If Auburn played this hard earlier we wouldn’t lost to Tennese guarunteed!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:27 pm

…..2nd and 5 for the Tigers. Pistol set. Fakes, keeps, got the first down? No, too big a slide.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:26 pm

It could be a shoot out. Justin Fields will need to play for UGA.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20186:26 pm

Can both teams lose next week?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:26 pm

…..Trips right for Auburn. Give Shivers, to the 30.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:26 pm

…..Kickoff, fair caught by Cox at the 21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:25 pm

……After getting blown out by both Georgia and Alabama, all I can do it tip my hat to them. SHould be interesting in Atlanta, next weekend.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:25 pm

Time to air the ball up. My mother says that Auburn needs to get better players.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:24 pm

He’s coming then Bo with his dad!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:23 pm

…..PAT is up and good, and with 14:29 left, this one has gotten ugly. Alabama 45, Auburn 21.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20186:23 pm

I will agree, Bryant isn’t the best passing QB. But neither was Nick Marshall.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:23 pm

…..That is a catch, a great one, unfortunately.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:22 pm

…..One official called in incomplete, and one a catch. Will be reviewed.

auburnelvis November 24, 20186:22 pm

Kelly Bryant will be in Auburn next year with Bo Nix as understudy! Then Patrick Nix will come on board the following year to run the offensive show. Count on it!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:22 pm

…..Here’s A fake, fade. Ruggs, caught?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:21 pm

…..Quick screen, Waddle, down to the 21, another first down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:21 pm

…..2nd and 7 Tide. Pistol. Give Harris, will power for 8.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20186:21 pm

Well…. sold on Bryant or not…. could Kelly Bryant possibly be any worse than Stidham this year?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:20 pm

…..Bryant was benched, and bailed the same week. That makes me nervous… Of course, with the free agent rule, no telling how many Auburn players will be lost this next year. Hopefully we can pick up a few in compensation…

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20186:20 pm

Kelly Bryant could be made to order for a Malzahn offense. He’s 6’3″ and weighs about 230. He could be the best RPO QB Auburn has seen since Nick Marshall. Marshall adapted in one offseason to the offense. Cam Newton did too.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:19 pm

…..Everyone is sold on Kelly Bryant, but I’m not, either. Another quarterback that has to come in and adapt to a weird offense.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20186:18 pm

Hopefully Stidham enters the draft. If he does, Kelly Bryant to Auburn is probably a done deal. But unfortunately, I just don’t see how Stidham can enter the draft considering how flawed his play is this year.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:17 pm

Who will be a running QB? Clemson’s reject?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:17 pm

…..Stidham may be back. His draft stock has really taken a hit, this year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:17 pm

…..2nd and 7. The third quarter comes to an end. Alabama leads Auburn, 38-21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:16 pm

…..Here’s the Bama offense. Give Harris, got about 3.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:16 pm

I am really looking forward to having a running QB again.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:16 pm

…..Only 33 yards. Average continues to go down.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:16 pm

O line continues to be manhandled

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:16 pm

…..Siposs in to punt again. Siposs with a bit of a rugby look, goes out at the Auburn 43. Poor, poor punt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:15 pm

….Sacked on a 3 man rush.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:15 pm

…..3rd and 19, from the AUburn 13. Stidham will be sacked at the ten.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:14 pm

…..Was outside the tackle box, but that does not apply on a flea flicker. Correct call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:14 pm

Flag? Grounding…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:13 pm

….ONly 2, 2nd and 8. Trips left again. Pistol. Moves Whitlow, flea flicker, and Stidham has to throw it away.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:13 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Trips left, give right to Whitlow, got a 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:12 pm

…..Here’s yet another Tide kickoff. SHort, at the five, Igbinoghene, put down at the 22.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:10 pm

…..Bulovas is up, and good, and with 2:22 left in the 3rd, Alabama leads Auburn, 38-21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:10 pm

……1st and 10 Tide. Two backs. Motion out. Fakes, will fire to Smith, jukes a man, scores. Igbinoghene gave that one up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:09 pm

….New set of downs at the 45. Give to Harris, juking tackles, to the Auburn 40.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:09 pm

……4 wides for Tua. Takes, fakes, hits Devonte Smith for a big gain.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:08 pm

…..Oh, it was a bit of a push!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:08 pm

…..Carlson to kick off. Another touchback for Carlson.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:07 pm

…..Saban is going nuts, claiming that Slayton pushed off. Why does Malzahn get flagged for arguing, and Saban is 40 yards downfield doing the same, and gets no call?

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:07 pm

A great play by Slayton. His tendency to drop balls has always puzzled me.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:06 pm

…..Carlson is, and good on the PAT. WIth 3:31 left in the 3rd, Auburn has cut the Bama lead to 31-21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:06 pm

…..I can’t believe Alabama had that bad of a coverage bust! Way underthrown, but Slayton was able to adjust!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:05 pm

…..3rd and 2. Huddle again. Fake, slings it, Slayton, will SCOREEEEEEEE!

Squeakywheel November 24, 20186:05 pm

The talent gap in this game is huge.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:05 pm

…..2nd and 7. Milling around on the formation. Huddle, breaking out. Woody? Fakes it, swing to Schwartz, got about 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:04 pm

….1st and 10 Tigers. Double twins. Stidham changing his play. Give Whitlow, falls forward for three.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:04 pm

I am looking for Chandler Cox.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:03 pm

…..Ryan Davis apparently done for the day.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:03 pm

…..Auburn nearly got another one. Tutt will take the punt, out to the Auburn 37.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:03 pm

….All out blitz, made him throw early.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:02 pm

…..Tua will take, and fires high for Ruggs!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20186:02 pm

I agree. I would just line up and throw the ball.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:02 pm

…..At the 26. About 3rd and 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:02 pm

…..2nd and 8 Bama. Three wides. Give Harris, got about 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:01 pm

…..Give Jacobs, got 2.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:01 pm

…..You have a stable full of receivers, and you throw it to the kicker on 4th down. Wow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:01 pm

…..A swing gate sort of play, offensive line to the left, Carlson to the right, and Bama played it well.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20186:00 pm

…..On 4th and 4, weird look. Willis in, fires to Carlson, short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:59 pm

….Two down territory? 3rd and 6. Fans on their feet. Twins. Motion in. Stidham swings it to Whitlow, will go down at the 23.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:59 pm

…..2nd and 6. Twins either side. Changing the play. Stidham rolls right, Schwartz can’t get it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:58 pm

Stove.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:58 pm

….New set of downs. Stidham, screen to Sove, moves to the Bama 25.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:58 pm

…..Well, not to the face either, on that replay. Just late.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:57 pm

…..No targeting, but will call roughing the passer, which will tack on.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:57 pm

…..Wasn’t a head to head on Stidham, but hands to the face definitely applies.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:57 pm

….Low throw, and Slayton had to take a knee to catch it. WOuld have been a score. Bama targeted Stidham, and they flagged it, too.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:56 pm

….Brings up 3rd and 9. Bunch look, Stove in motion. Fires to Slayton, first down!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:55 pm

….2nd and 9. Empty, slant, dropped by Slayton.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:55 pm

….Buck sweep, guards didn’t get around.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:55 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Give Whitlow on the crossbuck, nothing doing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:55 pm

….Oh, yeah. Back then, you stuck your helmet right in there. Most lethal weapon we had, we were taught.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:54 pm

…..Davis is up, and will be walking off under his own power. Bama players wishing him well. That’s good sportsmanship, there.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:54 pm

Number 4 for Bama knew that hit was bad. Ironically, we were taught to target. I broke one face mask when I was hit on an end sweep in HS.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:53 pm

…..That should move the ball up to about the Auburn 44.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:51 pm

…..Auburn trainers are tending to Davis. He is moving, which is a really good sign.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:51 pm

That is the definition of targeting.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:51 pm

…..Ruling is confirmed, targeting. Mayden is ejected.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:50 pm

…..Helmet to helmet, there.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:50 pm

…..Flag, and targeting? Ryan Davis is knocked out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:50 pm

…..3rd and 6. Stidham throws underneath, and Ryan Davis is popped down short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:49 pm

…..Waited WAY too long to throw that.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:49 pm

…..2nd and 6. Bunch, moving around. Trips left, now. All kind of time, Threw deep, Slayton, short, tipped around, and lucky it wasn’t picked.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:48 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Three wides. Now a shift, unbalanced line, Whitlow gets 4.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20185:48 pm

Yeah, Stidham just hasn’t been up to the task this entire year. He looked good in the Washington game, but that was the highlight of his year. Stidham has reliably disappeared during every big game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:48 pm

…..Bulovas to kick off. Taken at the one by Igbinoghene, and he is BELTED at the 21.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:46 pm

…..Bama has taken the top off the Auburn defense twice, in the second half.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:46 pm

It will now be a difficult hill to climb unless Stidham can begin to play better.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:46 pm

…..That’s a bust. Auburn was in a Tampa two zone, and the running back should NEVER get past the middle linebacker.

Jonathon Jonathon November 24, 20185:45 pm

Par for the course. Goodnight.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:45 pm

…..Knockout punch, there. The PAT is up and good, and Alabama takes a 31-14 lead with 9:49 left in the 3rd quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:44 pm

…..Split backs for Bama. Fake, Tua fires on the seam route to Jacobs, and he’ll break tackles into the end zone.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:44 pm

…..Russell. That moves it to the Auburn 33.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:43 pm

……New set of downs. Twin backs. give Harris, and Auburn pulls him down by the facemask.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:42 pm

…..2nd and 2. Expect a shot, here. Tua, tunnel screen to Jacobs, and he’s out to midfield.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:42 pm

…..Fake, and fired to Devonte Smith, for about 8 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:42 pm

…..Auburn simply isn’t a threat to get the ball down the field to even 1 wide receiver today, much less 3. Wasted bodies.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:41 pm

…..Play calls to open the second half, a roll and throw too high. Predictable give up the gut with 3 wides in the game. Then, a throw short of the first down marker.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:40 pm

….Only 37 yards, giving Alabama field position that their offense does not need to have!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:39 pm

…..Siposs with the boot, fair caught at the Bama 31.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:39 pm

…..Had a clean pocket that time, but not a wise choice.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:39 pm

…..Brings up a familiar 3rd and 8. Stidham with 4 wides. He’ll have time, throws to Schwartz short, and will be a couple of yards short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:38 pm

…..2nd and 10, behind the sticks again. Motion to the wide side. Give Whitlow, not much.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:37 pm

…..Auburn opens with 3 wides, 2 backs. Fakes, rolls right, misses Slayton at the 40. He was open…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:36 pm

…..Igbinoghene and Shivers deep. Booted into the endzone, downed.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:36 pm

…..Who will have the best halftime adjustments, Malzahn offensively, or Saban defensively? We’ll find out soon.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:34 pm

…..Jamel Dean on man coverage, made a swat at the ball, but that was perfectly thrown.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:34 pm

…..The PAT is up and good, and with 12:57 left in the 3rd, Alabama leads, 24-14.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:33 pm

…..2nd and 2. Going up top, Jeudy on the corner route, touchdown Bama.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:33 pm

…..New set of downs. Tua with time, fires to Smith, tripped by Davis, got 8.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:32 pm

……3rd and 1. Bunch set. Motion. Give Jacobs breaking through, to the 46.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:32 pm

…..2nd and 9. 3 wides. Tua will fire short, Irv Smith for about 9

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:31 pm

…..1st and 10 from the 25 for the TIde. Give Harris, not much!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:31 pm

I use baking powder instead of yeast. Time for a big stop.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:30 pm

….>Carlson to kick off, to the goal line, Jacobs takes a knee, touchback.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:30 pm

…..Stole that stat shamelessly from the radio team…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:30 pm

…..Auburn has blocked 7 kicks, this year. The most since 1950!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:29 pm

…..Sounds awesome!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:28 pm

Yuengling and Miller High Life makes a great pizza dough. A chef in St. Louis gave me his recipe.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:27 pm

…..Fans weakly applauding, as Alabama returns to the field.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:26 pm

…..How about that? We got about 10 seconds of coverage of the Auburn band!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:25 pm

It is time for Jarrett Stidham to go long. Bama’s safeties are creeping up to the line and not respecting the pass.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:24 pm

…..JaTarvious Whitlow leads all Tigers, with 65 total yards, 40 on the ground and 25 on a dumpoff pass.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:23 pm

Tua Tagliova is 14 of 20, for 116 yards passing. He added 26 yards on 4 carries. Tua hasn’t hit the downfield passes, but he’s hitting them underneath. Auburn has tackled pretty well, to hold him to 5.8 yards per pass on 70 percent completion percentage.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:21 pm

…..Auburn has done most of their damage on the ground, as Stidham is just 5 of 15 for 36 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:18 pm

…..I’m really a cheapskate, these days. Black Box Pinot, or Bota are staples. Beer, I’m likely to just pick up a case of Yeungling at Sam’s Club.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:17 pm

…..Trader’s is a great place to shop for beer and wine, as long as one isn’t a brand snob. A lot of their store stuff is pretty good. I’m having Club-400 whiskey. I’ve earned it over the last few days!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:16 pm

That is a great beer. I use it for my pizza dough. You say that Auburn has a chance

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20185:13 pm

Good idea. I will get a Boatswain double IPA from the fridge. 8.4% and costs only $4.99 for a six pack at Trader Joe’s, actually very good! It’s a little hoppy, so it’s not for everyone, but I highly recommend… a true price performer!

Jonathon Jonathon November 24, 20185:11 pm

Whoa! What Gus team is this?? More fodder for why he is inconsistent…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:11 pm

…..It is now time to switch over from coffee, to a drink more substantial.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:11 pm

…..I figured Vandy would win that game, but I figured it would be closer.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:10 pm

…..The 2 three and outs near the half were huge. Auburn had the short end of the stick, till that point. Got the blocked punt, and converted it for a touchdown to keep it close.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20185:10 pm

Vandy is beating Tennessee 17-0 going into halftime…..

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:09 pm

…..And it’s halftime. Alabama leads Auburn, 17-14 at the half.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20185:08 pm

I guess Malzahn is happy with going to halftime down by 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:08 pm

….Neither team using their timeouts. Both have all 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:08 pm

…..Pistol set. Give Whitlow, nothing doing.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:08 pm

……2nd and 8. Clock runs, under a minute.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:08 pm

…..1st and 10 Tigers. Two backs. Give Shivers, cut it up, to the 32.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:07 pm

….Stops the clock with 1:46.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:07 pm

…..2nd and 2. Package coming in. 3 wides. Give Whitlow, will power close, picked it up!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:06 pm

…..2:31 left in the half. Huddle. Power set, pitch to the boundary, got about 8!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:06 pm

….Got it off, Ryan Davis gets it at the 16, to the 19.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:05 pm

…..Alabama sends out the punt team, and the boo birds are out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:05 pm

…..Iggy ran him out short.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:05 pm

…..Rabbit package for Auburn, on 3rd and 9. Pressure, and tua will scramble, spottted a yard short!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:04 pm

……2nd and 10. Pistol set. Give, nothing for Harris!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:03 pm

…..Tua in the gun for Bama. Time, time… misses Ruggs, well covered by Dean.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20185:03 pm

I think he used to be a high school QB.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20185:03 pm

He probably has more TD passes than stidham

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:03 pm

…..Here’s Carlson to kick off. Sails out of the end zone.

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20185:02 pm

Special teams has been amazing like that the whole year. Porter switching to special teams coach may have been the most intelligent coaching change of the offseason..

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:02 pm

…..Can’t believe that worked.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20185:02 pm

A little razzle dazzle

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:02 pm

……Alabama failed to see that coming, even though Ryan Davis lined up way back. Auburn has run that several times before. Ryan Davis has been money throwing that ball, though.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:01 pm

…..Carlson is up and good, and with 4:04 left in the half, Alabama still leads, 17-14.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:00 pm

…..Throwback double pass, TOUCHDOWNNNNN, AUBURN! WOW!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:00 pm

…..2nd and 10. Motion out. Davis will throw to Malik Miller, and he will score!!!!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20185:00 pm

“Punt Bama Punt”

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20185:00 pm

…..At the Bama 23. Huddle, empty set. Lobs to Schwartz, and nothing there. Fumble, caught by Tega!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:59 pm

….No, it was Smoke Monday!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:59 pm

…..Did Peters get that?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:58 pm

…..It is BLOOOOOCKEDDDD! Monday!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:58 pm

…..Short by a yard, where it is marked, and in comes the punting team.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:58 pm

…..3rd and 3. 3 wides. Give to Jacobs, he’s close.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:57 pm

…..2nd and 12. Tua throws on the out, caught by Jeudy, at the 23.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:57 pm

…..Bama from their 16. Here’s Jacobs on the give, loses two!

dyingculture dyingculture November 24, 20184:56 pm

I’m losing hope that an NFL team would want Stidham after this showing. Bye bye, Kelly Bryant, because Stidham might have to come back next year.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:55 pm

…..Bama takes over with 6:32 left in the half. Auburn defense must find a way to get a stop. Allow a touchdown here, and the game is likely out of reach. Alabama gets the ball to start the second half, as well.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:54 pm

…..siposs picks up a low snap, boots it to the 13, downed at the 16. Only 38 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:54 pm

….Kim got beat up the middle on the pass rush.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:53 pm

…..3rd and 7. 4 wide bunch. Motion across to the left. Misses a wide open Slayton on the out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:53 pm

….Ruled incomplete.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:53 pm

…..2nd and 7. Martin checks in. 4 wides. Changing his play. Stidham dropped the ball on the fake, and had to fall on it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:52 pm

……Bunch set, under center. Motion, give Schwartz, only about 3. That was easy to see coming.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:52 pm

…..Moves the ball to the Auburn 43. Official timeout?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:51 pm

….Yes! Wipes out the sack!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:51 pm

…..And a flag? Facemask?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:51 pm

…..3rd and 7 for Auburn, possession play. Stidham bringing 6. Sacked.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:50 pm

…..2nd and 10. Give Whitlow, not much, about 3.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:49 pm

…..Auburn will start at the 25. Three wides, 2 backs. Under center now. Fake, has to throw it away. An unblocked rusher.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20184:49 pm

Another fair catch at the goal line?

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20184:49 pm

This play series is important.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:49 pm

…..Here’s the kickoff by Bulovas. Fair caught by Shivers at the two.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:48 pm

…..Vandy up on UT, 14-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:47 pm

…..Basically a 3-point call by the refs on that one, on the trap that wasn’t. A 40 yard attempt would have been much more dicey.

Jonathon Jonathon November 24, 20184:47 pm

Welp. We saved some face there.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:46 pm

…..Right down the middle good. Alabama grabs a 17-7 lead, with 8:59 left in the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:46 pm

….Brings up 4th and 10. Bulovas in for a 30 yard attempt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:45 pm

….Review, stands. Bama gets the call, natch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:44 pm

…..Ball hit the ground and the hands simultaneously. The ground cannot help with the catch, and it did, there.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:44 pm

…..That is a trap. Not caught! Will review…

Squeakywheel November 24, 20184:43 pm

Tackle, tackle, tackle!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:43 pm

…..Tide has trips right. Pressure, Marlon Davidson can’t get him down, Waddle makes the catch at the 12, and put down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:42 pm

…..And a late flag thrown, intentional grounding! 3rd and 20 at the 22.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:42 pm

…..2nd and 10 at the Auburn 11. Three wides. Big blitz, throws it away, again no grounding call?

….Screen Jeudy, cuts back, nothing doing!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:41 pm

….3rd and 6. Motion in. Blitz, doesn’t get there, slant to Ruggs, inside the 15.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:40 pm

…..2nd and 6. Tua with time, dumped it, grounding? No call.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:40 pm

…..Give Harris, will mash for about 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:40 pm

…..New set of downs for Bama, at the Auburn 26.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:39 pm

….Both hands, and the early takedown.

…..New set of downs. Trips left. Give Harris right, slashes for about 9.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:36 pm

……Alabama in the bunch. Tua to throw. Will dump to Harris wide open, to the 42.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:34 pm

….A three ‘n’ out sure would be nice, here. Better yet, a turnover.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:33 pm

50 yards, no return.

…..Here is the kickoff. Booted short, fair caught by Shivers at the nine.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:29 pm

…..Vanderbilt is leading Tennessee, 7-0 near the end of the first quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:28 pm

…..Auburn helped Bama on that drive, with a kickoff out of bounds to give them good field position, and then the facemask.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:27 pm

….Bulovas is up and good, and with 14:15 left in the half, Alabama leads Auburn 14-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:27 pm

…..Reviewing? I think he scored.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:26 pm

…..first and goal, quickly, screen, and Ruggs fights the ball over for a score.

auburnelvis November 24, 20184:26 pm

I’m just glad we made it to first commercial without Bama score.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:26 pm

…..2nd and 9. Bunch set, quick out to Jeudy, near the stake, got it to the 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:25 pm

…..Shotgun set for Bama. Give Harris, fell forward for a yard.

auburnelvis November 24, 20184:23 pm

Weak holding call on 75 yard td

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:22 pm

…..The tale thus far is dropped balls and penalty yards. Auburn had 48 penalty yards, in just 1 quarter.

Jonathon Jonathon November 24, 20184:22 pm

BS! Bama has all of their yardage on Auburn “penalties”

auburnelvis November 24, 20184:22 pm

Zebras helping Bama

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:21 pm

……At the Auburn 15, 1st and 10, and the clock runs out. That’s the end of the first quarter, tied at 7-7. Bama is threatening, though.

auburnelvis November 24, 20184:21 pm

Turnover time

auburnelvis November 24, 20184:21 pm

Omg

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:21 pm

…..Gonna be a facemask.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:20 pm

…..2nd and 8. 4 wides. Fake, throws the hitch, Jacobs fighting close, and a flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:20 pm

…..Throwback to Harris, tripped for just 2.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:19 pm

…..No, not even hit. Just fell down.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20184:19 pm

Multiple missed tackles, but he’s fast

…..Block in the back uncalled.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:18 pm

…..1st and 10 Tide, Pistol set. Harris, stopped in his tracks, nothing!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:17 pm

…..And Carlson boots the kickoff out of bounds. Youtch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:17 pm

…..I would look for some Alabama adjustments, here. Auburn hasn’t even thought about a deep ball, yet. Alabama will ratchet down the coverage.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20184:17 pm

Yes. That was a great series by the offensive line.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:16 pm

…..And then Stidham read the delayed blitz, and found his checkdown receiver Whitlow, wide open.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:16 pm

…..What was shocking on that last drive, was that the Auburn offensive line really took it to the Tide front.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20184:15 pm

That was a beautiful set of downs.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:15 pm

…..Carlson is up and good, and this game is tied at 7! With 2:37 left in the first quarter!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:14 pm

…..TOUCHDOOOOOWN, AUBURN!!!!!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:14 pm

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:08 pm

…..Here is the boot! At the one, Igbinoghene, run down at the 28.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:07 pm

…..Auburn got a bit of its own medicine, on that last play. Auburn was still trying to get lined up, when Alabama jumped into an unbalanced line and quick snapped it.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:06 pm

…..PAT is good, and with 6:38 left in the first quarter, Alabama leads Auburn, 7-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:05 pm

…..3rd and 3 for the Tide. Bunched up again. Keeper, will power into the end zone.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:04 pm

…..2nd and 5 at the Auburn 9. Bunch, Give Jacobs, stopped for a couple.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:04 pm

…..A shovel pass, on that last one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:04 pm

…..First and 10 at the Auburn 14. Three wides. Motion, pitch to Ruggs, and he gets 4 or so.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:03 pm

…..Quick pass to Ruggs, breaks a tackle, picks up 20.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:03 pm

…..I’m guessing Michigan’s defense won’t be number 2 in the nation, after today. Ohio State leads 62-39, late.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:01 pm

…..2nd and 10 Tide. That’s Auburn’s best cover corner out for a play, at least.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20184:01 pm

Auburn needs to play smart. These refs look like they will be calling a tight game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:01 pm

…..Dean jogs off, perhaps got the wind knocked out while diving for the ball.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:00 pm

…..Jamel Dean with a non-contact injury?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:00 pm

…..Jeudy was well covered.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20184:00 pm

…..Tua in the gun at the Auburn 34. Bunch look. Fake, time, will overthrow.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:59 pm

…..Auburn is making just too many mistakes, to have a chance in this one.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20183:59 pm

I would have thought the butterfingers by receivers would have been corrected this late in the season

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:57 pm

…..Well, upon slow motion review, Javaris Davis hit him, before the block in the back. Kick catch interference coming, at best.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:56 pm

…..Was blocked into Waddle, and drew the flag.

Squeakywheel November 24, 20183:56 pm

Dumpster is already on fire

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:56 pm

…..That’s going to be a targeting, possibly.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:56 pm

…..Siposs will launch one, Auburn runs over Waddle, he’s down, and a flag.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:55 pm

…..3rd and 27. Stidham takes, and gives to Whitlow, got a yard to the nine.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:55 pm

…..2nd and 27. Two backs. Motion out. Screen, Ryan Davis will get nothing. Telegraphed that play…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:54 pm

…..At the eight, empty. A drop by Whitlow on the screen, nothing there anyway.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:54 pm

…..Ticky-tack calls, there.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:53 pm

Home cooking is in effect.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:53 pm

…..Backs Auburn up, way up.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:53 pm

…..And now they throw a flag on Malzahn, too.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:52 pm

…..Holding on Canella, will wipe out a score.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:52 pm

…..Shivers scores, but a flag, and a bama man down.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:51 pm

…..New set of downs. Half huddle. Motion out. Give on the sweep, Shivers, LOOOOOOOSEEEE!`

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:51 pm

…..3rd and inches. Give Martin, turns the corner, to the 25!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:50 pm

…..2nd and 10. 4 wides. Stidham changing his play. Give Kam Martin, got about nine!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:50 pm

…..Two back pistol set. Davis in motion. GIve Whitlow, nothing at all.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:49 pm

…..Auburn needs to catch the ball, this drive.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:47 pm

…..They spot it at the ten.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:47 pm

…..4th and 5 for Alabama, and in comes the punting team. Bernier, will hit at the five, killed at the 12.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:46 pm

…..3rd and 5 for Bama. Rabbit package for Auburn. Blitz, lobbed up, too far, incomplete!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:46 pm

…..2nd and 5. Fake, rolls left, and knocked away by J. Davis!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:45 pm

…..New set of downs. Give Harris, will push up near midfield.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:45 pm

…..2nd and 7. Bunch set. Tua to throw. Finds Smith Jr. to the 45.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:44 pm

…..1st and 10 Bama. Give Harris, bangs for 3 off right tackle.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:44 pm

…..2nd and 5. Trips right. Fake, will dump to Jeudy, wide open. 13 yards.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:43 pm

…..From the 12 goes Bama. Pistol set. Give Harris, slashes for 5.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:42 pm

…..And a flag? Unnecessary roughness on Bama, Josh Jacobs.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:42 pm

Those balls have to be caught. Time for some defense.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:42 pm

…..An Auburn 3 and out. Siposs in to punt. Waddle will fair catch, at the 25. A 50 yard punt.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:41 pm

…..3rd and 10. Time.. and throws underneath, and nearly picked off.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:41 pm

…..2nd and 10. Motion out by Whitlow. Dumped to Davis, and he can’t hold on.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:40 pm

…..Auburn starts at the 25. Two back set, Whitlow and Cox. Stidham will fire to Williams on the slant, dropped.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:40 pm

A perfect afternoon for this game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:39 pm

…..NO, ALabama is kicking off. I misunderstood, early. Bulovous kicks a touchback, for Alabama.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:38 pm

…..They typically scatter the auburn contingent in the upper decks.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:37 pm

I am looking for the Auburn fans. I have friends at the game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:37 pm

…..Coin toss… Auburn calls tails.. it’s heads. Alabama wins the toss, and wants the football.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:36 pm

…..I loved hearing from all the players that they interviewed in Auburn history…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:35 pm

…..Teams are entering the field! Hostile noise abounds.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:34 pm

I really enjoyed the interview with Patrick Nix. His son is the real deal and will be on Auburn’s campus in January.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:30 pm

…..I’ve had the radio on since 12:30! I’ve also switched over to the antenna from the cable box.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:28 pm

Florida State has really fallen on hard times. What a difference from the National Championship team. It is time for me to mute CBS and listen to Rod and Stan.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:25 pm

…..In the afternoon SEC slots, we have wars for 2 states, Alabama and Tennessee. In Nashville, Tennessee and Vanderbilt are both 5-6. The winner will go to a bowl.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:24 pm

…..In the SEC, Georgia 45, Georgia Tech 14, final.
Florida 41, Florida State 14, under 5 minutes left in that one.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:21 pm

….CBS has announced a 2:39 PM Central kickoff, so, we are just 18 minutes away.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:21 pm

Ohio State could be picked for the ratings factor and they do have a better defense than Oklahoma. Of course, I do like watching Oklahoma play. War Eagle!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:08 pm

…..We are 20-30 minutes from kickoff. Time for 1 last snack break!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:06 pm

…..The committee let Ohio State in a couple of years ago, when they did not win the big ten. Passed over Penn State. The Buckeyes then got blanked by Clemson.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20183:03 pm

Ohio State will most likely be the favorite if they can win the Big 10.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:02 pm

…..Should Alabama beat Auburn, and lose to UGA, both UGA and Bama might get in, leaving both conferences out.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:01 pm

…..PAC-12 is already out, as their champion will have 3 losses, and Wazzo has 2.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20183:01 pm

…..A think a conference champion, and perhaps two, will get left out, this year. I figure on Clemson, Notre Dame and Bama going undefeated. That means either the Big 12 or Big 10 will get left out.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20182:59 pm

Ohio State is playing their best game of the season. The Ohio State players probably got tired of listening to media.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:56 pm

…..Cashed. A Buckeye screen to the two, and punched in from there. Ohio State 41, Michigan 19, late in the 3rd.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:55 pm

…..I had watched Shea Patterson, when he was at Ole Miss. Incredible athlete, but not the greatest accuracy or decision-making ability. And he just threw a hopeless ball into coverage for a Buckeye pick…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:54 pm

…..I had not scouted either team enough to have an opinion.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20182:51 pm

Most of the “talking heads” picked Michigan.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:48 pm

…..Ohio State blocks a punt, and Michigan is on the ropes. Buckeyes lead, 34-19 with about 4 minutes left in the 3rd.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:41 pm

…..Ohio State drove the length of the field, and kicked a field goal. They lead Michigan 27-19, midway through the 3rd.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:40 pm

…..Early SEC games are already pretty much decided. Georgia is pounding Georgia Tech, 45-7. Florida has opened up a 27-7 lead over Florida State.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:38 pm

…..Auburn was only 2 of 12 on 3rd down, against Liberty last week.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20182:37 pm

Auburn has little to lose today. I will be tracking the third and long situations. This will be Jarrett Stidham’s day to improve his NFL stock.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20182:35 pm

1972 was my first year at Auburn. The Auburn/Bama ticket was $2. Each student received a ticket packet when they signed up for classes.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:30 pm

…..1972 I was building one of those little Revell models. My parents were listening to the game in the next room, and I was kind of half listening. The game was not on TV. Alabama was a big favorite, and dominated the game, till those 2 blocked punts. House went nuts!

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20182:28 pm

It is time for a coaching change at GT. Ohio State is playing much better than I expected. In 1972, I sold my student tickets and went deer hunting. I still regret my decision to this day.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20182:27 pm

…..And Alabama covered by 10 points by halftime.

Randyc37 Randyc37 November 24, 20182:21 pm

Auburn was a 32 point underdog in 2012.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:57 pm

…..Warmups are beginning, in Bryant Denny, for the Iron Bowl.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:52 pm

…..Early SEC games are at the half, as well. Georgia leads Tech 38-7. Florida leads Florida State 13-7.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:52 pm

…..Buckeyes have to settle for the field goal. They lead Michigan, 24-19 at the half.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:48 pm

…..Ohio State is threatening, with just 15 seconds left in the half. Flags being thrown on every play, it seems like. Ohio State benefited from 2 very questionable flags on the Michigan secondary, then the Wolverines got beat over the top on a flag route. First and goal Buckeyes.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:41 pm

…..Patterson takes a sack on the 2 pointer, and the score remains 21-19. Michigan trying to chase lost points, early.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:39 pm

…..A wheel route not covered by Ohio State, and Michigan has closed it to 21-19.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:39 pm

…..Tigerwalk in Tuscaloosa is concluding. We are about 2 hours from the Iron Bowl kickoff.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:38 pm

…..Meltdown in the Shoe! Buckeyes muff the kickoff, and Michigan has it deep in Buckeye land!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:36 pm

…..Shea Patterson comes up with a miracle two-minute drive for Michigan. Had two balls that should have been picked off, but were not. A fade to the corner, and the Wolverines score just before half. Ohio State 21, Michigan 13.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:29 pm

…..Ohio State scores again, and leads Michigan 21-6. The Wolverine offense gives them little chance to make up that deficit. We’ve been seeing the narrative all year that Urban Meyer is finished, but it looks like the Buckeyes will once again be B1G champs, and in the playoff conversation.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:24 pm

…..Make that 13-0, Florida, midway through the 2nd quarter.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:23 pm

……Ohio State leads Michigan, 14-6.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:22 pm

…..Early SEC games are progressing more or less as expected. Georgia is pummelling Georgia Tech, 35-7 near the half. Florida leads Florida State 10-0.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:21 pm

…..I’m seeing headlines that Alabama is using helicopters to try and dry the field at Bryant Denny Stadium. That’s odd. an hour up the road here in the Tragic City, we only got about a half inch of rain, last night.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 20181:04 pm

…..So, Michigan decides to go for it on 4th down near midfield, is late lining up, and has to call timeout. After the timeout, they mill around, confused as to where to line up, and then two linemen jump early. A discombobulated offensive mess…

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201812:42 pm

…..Watching Michigan vs. Ohio State a bit, this morning. Not impressed with Michigan play-calling. They waste first and second down trying to run to the boundary, and end up in long yardage time and time again. Sound familiar?

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201812:38 pm

…..Checking early SEC action… Georgia leads Georgia Tech in Athens, 14-7. Florida vs. Florida State is still scoreless, late in the 1st quarter in Tallahassee.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:49 am

……On FOX, Washington State hosted Washington in the annual Apple Cup. That game, too, featured some early rain, but the precipitation switched quickly over to snow, and the white stuff fell heavily the rest of the game. The weather severely crippled the Mike Leach airraid attack, while the tight-end-heavy Chris Petersen offense found traction in the ground game. The Huskies won it, and their division, 28-15. With Washington State falling to 10-2, the PAC-12 is effectively eliminated from Playoff consideration.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:45 am

…..Friday night was a channel-flipping treat. In Morgantown, West Virginia, a playoff elimination game was played, with more scoring than an old pinball machine. Oklahoma outlasted West Virginia, 59-56, to win their division. And no, there was no overtime. That was all in regulation.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:41 am

…..Friday afternoon, Missouri thrashed Arkansas 38-0 in Columbia, putting the Razorbacks squarely in last place in the SEC, with a 2-10, 0-8 in the SEC mark. Big news from Co Mo was a torrential rainstorm during the game. Glad I wasn’t sitting through that cold weather drenching!

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:40 am

…..The altercation even involved coaches from both sides yelling at each other during and after the game. Presumably, the 3 Mississippi State players that were ejected will have to miss the first half of whatever bowl game the 8-4 Bulldogs play.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:38 am

…..In SEC action, we had a couple of blowout games, but there was still drama. Mississippi State beat Ole Miss in the annual Egg Bowl, 35-3 in Oxford, Mississippi. The big news from that game was a bench clearing altercation, in which 4 players were ejected, and an unsportsmanlike conduct flag was thrown on every player on both sides.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:35 am

…..And we are live! It has been a fun, and bizarre holiday weekend of college football, thus far.

Acid Reign Acid Reign November 24, 201811:34 am

….I don’t really keep up with the history of spreads. The Duval/rain/Florida game was 2001. Auburn won 23-20, to go to 5-1 on the season, before the wheels came off that year.

AETiger AETiger November 24, 20188:09 am

Just curious, when have we been larger betting underdogs? I was at the game at JHS when we beat #1 UF when Duvall hit the game winning FG with no time left in the rain. I think we were 16 pt “dogs”? What year was that and when have we been greater dogs? And second question, won?

    Weird for me; an alum and a season ticket holder; I saw 0% of this game. I was at a cookout with friends. I guess my priorities have changed. At one point I went to 24 straight AU / ua games. This program no longer is my main focus. I want us to win; but with what has happened across the state, I have moved on. Warm Beagle!

    …..I went through the 1973-1981 draught as a teen/early 20-something. I get fired up, regardless. The last Iron Bowl I had to work was in 1986. I’ve manipulated a priority vacation week every year, since. I love watching it, even if we have little chance.

    …..Kudos to the Alabama players, and coach. I watched the Ole Miss MSU, cheap-shot and brawl game. I was worried we might get the same. Auburn and Alabama players did battle with class, and we didn’t have the ugly mess.

    …..I appreciated the Bama players looking after Ryan Davis after the big hit, and knockout. These were good players playing hard, and respecting one another, not bands of thugs. I love the rivalry and talk 365 days a year. I also like that players in this game play the way a good sport expects.

    …..Don’t get me wrong, I HATE losing this game. But I’m not going to throw any more stones at Bama, or the officials.

    I’m with AETiger, I’m over this program. In fact I haven’t watched a college football game for more than 5 minutes in about 4 years. I moved to texas 6 years ago and auburn hasn’t mattered that entire time. NFL and NBA are the superior products anyway.

    While I might b^itch and moan about it, I will watch every game that I can, and when football is over, I’ll do the same with basketball, baseball, softball, womens basketball, gymnastics, volleyball, and even the horse stuff……me thinks that some of you need to get your head out of your butts.

    Due to family issues, of which some of you are aware, we were not able to attend or even watch, but I don’t back down. I’m with the Tigers through thick and thin.
    Yeah, this was a loss that looks, I think, more ugly than it was. And i may be wrong on that point.
    Nonetheless, I’m holding true to my school and the program. I don’t always have to agree with it but I’m still here.

    War Eagle!!

    If you took the time to visit Track’em AND comment you do care!! If this were about just following along when things are peachy and ditching it all when things aren’t .. then you’d be better called a Bama fan. I give my fair share of critique with this program. Looking at the big picture we should be fortunate to have a top tier program to cheer on and critique along the way. Auburn alum and fans know how good the sweet spots are because we know how sour the bad spots are. Bama is on a high pedestal and those fans may look happy week in and week out but, really, how fun can it be to just expect easy wins every week. That fall from grace will be hard on those fans. and I can’t wait to watch. I think we’ll look more focused in this year’s bowl game than last. I’m excited for the offseason news and what next season may hold. Having said all of that, Auburn needs a big wake up call.. looking at you Gus!!! WDE!

    In 1963, I became a WAR EAGLE, even though I was born in Baton Rouge, before the WAR, (i.e.,WW2). Anyone who knows me recognizes that I am and will always be an Auburn Man. I have been through some great years and some not so great years. I still take everyone of them to heart. (“This, too, shall pass!)
    As I have said here before:
    NEVER FORGET: WIN or lose, IT’S GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER !!!
    WAR EAGLE !!!
    GO BIG BLUE !!!
    BEAT WHOEVER IN WHATEVER BOWL GAME !!!(I will be there in spirit, FOR SURE!)
