     War Eagle, everybody! It’s Championship Saturday, and another college football game day for Auburn. This afternoon, the Auburn Tigers take on the Missouri Tigers for the SEC Title. This game will be played on CBS national television, at 3:00 PM Central Time, 4:00 PM Eastern Time. It’s a tale of two unlikely division champs, with Missouri rising from a 6th place finish in the SEC East. For Auburn, it’s been a storybook “worst to first” season. The winner of this game will be BCS-bound, possibly with a chance to play for the national title. The loser will likely fall to the Capital One or Cotton Bowl.

     The game will be played in the climate-controlled atmosphere of the Georgia Dome, so weather won’t be an issue during the game. For the festivities outside, raw weather is on tap. Today will be a gray day with periods of rain, becoming heavy after dark. The high temperature will be only 50 degrees, and it will feel chillier than that.

     As always, feel free to participate in this thread. Most our staff will be at the game, so participation may be light, but you’ll know that we’re screaming our heads off, trying to help our Tigers win! War Eagle! Go Auburn, and knock off those Missouri Tigers!

    Leaving Huntsville in about an hour. See you guys there.
    I have a good feeling about this game. I am strangely confident which is actually scary since I have not been incredibly nervous about an AU game in a long time.
    Why am I confident?
    The professor will have a plan.
    We are still getting better.
    Perfect conditions for our run game in the Dome.
    At least 70% of the fans at the game will be yelling for the Tigers.
    I just hope I am right.
    War Eagle and go MSU.

    • CapnVegetto says:

      I’d say 100% of the fans in Atlanta will be yelling for the Tigers!

      WHICH Tigers is the story.

      LOL Semantics MyAuburn. semantics!!

    TRACK EM TIGERS, JUST LIKE BEAGLES! GIVE EM HELL, YOU WAR DAMN EAGLES!!!!

    Happy Game Day, everyone! I’m feeling pumped!! My thoughts? We need a solid run game and we need pressure on Franklin. We need to cover the Mizzou WRs like butter on bread. Our O needs to be able to do what they’ve been doing, and our D must play their sharpest game yet. Given their performance last week, they have it in them!

    Game face: on! Let’s do this!!!!

    Safe travels to all those heading to the game! I’ll be screaming through the arctic air of the Great Plains. War Eagle!

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      It’s -10 outside…that’s not a windchill. High today? 3.

    Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen.
    I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are traveling, please be careful out there. There is a big Christmas parade in the ATL this am, so plan accordingly.

    Look for lots of fireworks late this afternoon as these two Tigers do battle. If everything goes as this season has unfolded, then our Tigers will run roughshod on those pesky felines from the other side of the conference. Don’t be too disappointed when their team scores points. The only thing that will keep our guys from winning this game, and continuing on their way to Destiny, is turnovers. If we have several, we lose. Protect the ball and we win going away late.

    War Eagle!

    Do NOT underestimate Missouri. People have been doing it all year and have all gotten their a$$es kicked.

    They are a good team. They have earned their way to Atlanta. Auburn better have its crap together or Missouri will leave yet another opponent that underestimates them beaten on the field of battle.

    I respect Missouri and what they’ve done this season. We’d better play our best game

    • KoolBell KoolBell says:

      Yes Missouri has been overlooked. By the media! We know a little something about that, don’t we? I have not, nor has Coach Malzahn, overlooked anyone. We have won a bunch of close games, with the ball bouncing our way.
      Missouri will be tough. The biggest difference in these two teams is the Turnover Margin. That is what I based my statement on. Protect the ball, and we win.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      Seriously. Our Tigers must have their best game of the season. Luckily, they seem to get better with every game.

    War Eagle and go Sparty!

    Acid and I are sitting in Taco Mac watching games. Let me know if anyone is close by.

    • Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

      I’ll be there in 5…..LOL

  8. wde1988 wde1988 says:

    War Eagle! And beat Mizzou!

    I wish I were in Atlanta today. Last time I was there was in 2011 for the Chick Fillet bowl. Kind of ironic. Last game Auburn had Malzahn. And here we are again… :)

    My prayer is that Auburn comes to play. I know these young men have the right work ethic. They have demonstrated it all year long. But still, the NC is just one game away… and I can’t speak for anyone else… when its that close… its hard not get excited. But it will have to take care of itself… Auburn must focus on Mizzou to even get the look.

    Lord, watch over this team and family today and keep them safe. Let us not forget who we are…and where we come from.

    War Eagle!

  9. rn4au rn4au says:

    Travel safely to all those lucky suckers that get to go to the game.. I’m watching from the hospital today with a bunch of crazy folks….Hoping for an injury free game and of course, the BIG WIN for my TIGERS!
    War Eagle and BEAT MISSOU!

  10. GRT2BAUTIGER says:

    Y’all better thank your stars I am not on the field today. I am a mess and all I have to do is try not to knock over the Christmas tree.

  11. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    It’s going to be a tough game. Stay positive! Let’s do itte!!!

    War Eagle!!!

  12. aubb says:

    defense looks good…

  13. aubb says:

    yeah marshall can throw

    • awbee75 says:

      Rooked on that mizzou touchdown! O looking good. C’mon Dee!!!! Onside kick!!

  14. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    If we can quit making mistakes and getting screwed on replays…..I like our chances .

  15. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    Problem is we can’t stop punching ourselves in the face.

  16. CapnVegetto says:

    God, this is like torture. We can’t do ANYTHING right. I mean come on guys, do you actually WANT to win???????

  17. Squeakywheel says:

    Agree – missed blocks, fumbles

  18. CapnVegetto says:

    Can’t stop stepping on our own dic-cks.

  19. CapnVegetto says:

    of course, if we manage to win, all the turds will admonish how lucky we are that DGB got hurt.

    ahem….COLT MCCOY….ahem

  20. aubb says:

    cant stop us running no way

  21. CapnVegetto says:

    and touchdown! after spotting them 10 points with stupidity, we regain the lead.

  22. Squeakywheel says:

    If we settle down, we’ll win this. We’re moving the ball well.

  23. Squeakywheel says:

    Field looks dark on tv – did atlanta forget to pay the power bill? Go mason!

  24. spanky says:

    Can we please ban the wr screen

  25. aubb says:

    bad last couple of series…should have at least a 15 pt cushion

  26. GRT2BAUTIGER says:

    A fumble deep in our own territory and bs td and we are talking about a much different game. Protect the football. I expect mizzou to air it out in the 2nd. Wde

  27. Squeakywheel says:

    Secondary smoked on that series.

  28. Squeakywheel says:

    And Florida would pick it apart

  29. Squeakywheel says:

    Florida state that is

  30. Squeakywheel says:

    Auburn defense is terrible – White should be thrown out of the game – sad really

    • restless6 says:

      Go away.

    • restless6 says:

      You should be thrown out of the forum.

    • wpleagle says:

      coming into the comments late, and don’t recognize your handle or know who you are, but that’s total BS. Mizzo receiver grabbed face mask, White’s momentum pulled him into the receiver at the end. Hated that Josey hit the cart, but White’s part was totally without malice, in my opinion. I agree with restless – go somewhere else.

  31. restless6 says:

    Lovin Bo on the sidelines!

    He’s into the game big time!

  32. friedca says:

    D has made a necessary stop. Hopefully Gus won’t play conservative and put this game away. War Eagle

  33. friedca says:

    War Eagle. That’s all I can say. What a perfect year.

  34. Squeakywheel says:

    Have no time for you young and restless – anytime you let a team put 42 on you… weak

  35. Squeakywheel says:

    Go Spartans!

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

  37. broken_towel broken_towel says:

  44. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    War eagle! We are the champions!

    Side brag for myself, I missed the final score but nailed the victory margin at 17.

    OSU is sucking it up right now, AU might jump them even if they win.

  45. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    Sparty has an inept offense

  46. restless6 says:

    Just because I know Bams can’t stand out sucess and hang out here.

    Suck it Bams.

    Suck it Updyke and anyone who remotely supported him at any time.

    Suck it Pete Thamel, Finebaum and 99.9% of the media.

    We are the SEC Champions.
