Wrappin it up: Auburn 14, Tennessee 12

I'll be posting information here as I progress through the tape and the stats and the scuttlebutt.

The Mea Culpa Project was in FULL EFFECT down there. He called himself a "dumbass" at least twice and said the WR pass option was the dumbest call he's ever made. You guys are going to love this.

AFTER SOME THOUGHT ...

  • The propensity for penalties and miscues on offense has to fall on "the coaches." I mean, this is beyond a fluky trend. This happens every week. The only new offensive assistant is Tony Franklin, so it's reasonable to think he's somehow lax on fundamentals. I've never heard that. I'm just observing that based on what we all see on Saturdays.

  • I don't think Chris Todd deserves the angst. Auburn's offense was almost adequate with him in the game PRE BURNS. Then he gets yanked, doesn't understand why, and that's basically a wrap.

  • It's interesting to me that Franklin mentioned several times that Tuberville made the call on Burns. Here's the quote that made me wonder ... though Franklin made several additional references:

    "It was basically through no fault of his own," Franklin said. ``Coach Tuberville made a decision to make a change to try and give us a boost. It looked like it worked for a while and then we couldn't finish."

  • Auburn's defense is really good. How long before that begins to create an internal divide? The disparity is an every-week thing.

  • What has happened to Wes Byrum? Someone search the milk aisle tomorrow for clues.


TONY FRANKLIN SPEAKS

  • On the unusual WR option pass on 3rd-and-18: "It might be the dumbest call I've made in 10 years. It's a third-and-short call, not a third-and-long call. I was being a total dumbass. That's what I was.

  • On quarterback development: "They both believe they can win. They're both confident. They both believe they're the best one. I honestly have failed them both. I haven't done as good a job coaching as I should have done. Neither one of them have played as well as they should have. It's a little puzzling to me because they played very well in the spring, they played really well in the summertime."

  • On the offense in general: "If you don't have a great defense (today), you lose. You can't win against great competition doing what we're doing. We are bumbling and stumbling on little stupid things. That's coaching. That's not their fault; that's my fault. I need to do a better job."

  • On Mario Fannin's expanded role: "It's another sign of me not being smart enough. I haven't gotten him the ball. If I line him up at quarterback, snap it to him -- he'd have the ball and wouldn't have to think as much. I've proven that I'm not very smart. We snap it to him, he runs. It's easy."

Jay G,

TF's self-imposed hatred only makes me sad for him. He needs a counselor.

Our offense...like (Jack Nicholas as) The Joker said...needs an enema.

Good job Defense.

Special thanks to Jonathan Crompton for screwing up multiple opportunities. We appreciate it.

Peace out, my man.

First off... Jay the shout out on CBS was awesome

Tony Franklin has zero confidence. He does some things that have potential, and the first little sign of adversity he chunks out the window, and we are back to weak armed lobs down the field. If you think something is going to work... stick with it.

We got handed a touchdown (literally), and played against the worst SEC quarterback i have ever seen in my lifetime. Final score 14-12... not good.

My players of the game...

Defense...

Josh Bynes- i thought he played terrible in the first half went into the locker room took a handful of horse steroids and dominated the second half

Marks and coleman- they don't suck at all

Offense...

Brad Lester- he was smart enough not to be associated with the offense today

Special Teams...

Clinton Durst- he showed alot of endurance out there today

Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

I think CTT rips CTF a new one tomorrow. Result - we live an die by Kodi the rest of the year. Win, lose or draw. We don't get the first down at the end without him in there. I'm wondering if he called that play or made it up on the fly. I thought he was going to throw his helmet at the pressbox on the series before - the one with three consecutie QB sneak/draws or whatever the hell they were.

Mario showed signs of life. He's not far away now. Starting to feel it again. If he could do some things, it would give Tate some room to do his thing.

Everybody else just needs to tighten up.

Defense continues to look better and better. Thankfully, UT sucks like a blackhole.

Todd needs to call plays and work on his coaching career. Give Kodi a full quarter at game speed, everybody getting a feel for his timing and him for theirs, and I promise things will start working.
You listening Tony? Soul searching is better than job searching.

UA at #1? Nope. UGA gave them that first half. Now that UGA is actually trying, we'll see how that game turns out.

You have to give Bama credit for playing hard and taking advantage of all of the opportunites UGA gave them, but UGA would've made even our offense look incredible in that first half.

Back to the topic, I think our offense looked best when we had a good balance of running and passing. It actually had some rhythm on Kodi's first drive until the WRs had a few drops. As soon as Kodi learns to have a great pocket presence like Chris, I think they'll let him stay in for more than 5 minutes and we'll actually have an effective offense. Until then, we'll continue to have Borges-like offensive production.

Bama's going to be ranked 1 or 2. Bank on it. They're gassed but UGA didn't play it's game until 3rd qtr. Depth, once again, was not considered.
There's a long season yet ahead. I hope we go into the Iron Bowl with the Bama at the top. I like our defense. With a miralce we'll find some offense by then. Because it would be too easy to line up and power it down their throats like we do EVERY YEAR!

I live in Georgia and would have to say I'm pleased with the Bama v UGA game. I'm not someone who usually roots for teams to lose, but I thoroughly enjoyed UGA getting throttled. UGA fans are just like Bama fans, except without all the NCs.

I was overly optomistic about our offensive performance last week, nearly to the point of taking something positive out of a loss. I apologize for taking up for CTF...there are, I don't know at least 2000 high school OC's that could have called a better game than that (or any of them for that matter). I have said it before but it bears saying again that it is a crime to waste a championship defense on so pathetic an offense. The really bad thing for Franklin is that the "system" he once sold for 3 grand is worth now as much as bear sterns stock. I don't care how many commits we lose, he needs to be canned now before they jump ship due to outright sucking. If Todd takes another freakin snap the rest of the way what little bit of pride CTF has is right out the window. I think he could literally produce more velocity with his arse cheeks....

Let me be clear. If CTF does not resign tonight, CTT should demand it.

If no arm is a qb next week, we need to quick kick every series.

If kodi can't learn the offense, lets do something that he can learn.

Put Todd out there again and I am out.

I truly wonder if some of the offense's problems come from the tendency of Coach Tuberville to want to sit on a lead. This seems to happen with every offensive coordinator we get.

Also, how come nobody's saying anything about the offensive line's propensity for stupid, drive-killing penalties?

It is hard to listen to the coaches post-game show as they squirm to answer questions about this offense.Paul and Andy try to lob them softballs to crush to no avail.

He could not complete a pass in the two series before he got yanked. Kodi deserved to come in.

If DumbA__ CTF had worked Kodi's strengths into the games sooner, there would be no controversy. Now, it is full blown.

Please tell me that Todd will never ever see the field again. Please transfer. Better yet, please have Zac kick his butt like he did the Furr whimp.

OK a question. We've been told time and time again that Franklin is running the offense as he sees fit. Now he says CTT decided to play Kodi. Doiesn't this get back to the question many of us had before about CTT wanting Kodi and Franklin wanting Todd? My gosh could this QB fiasco have possibly been handled any worse? One more thing does anyone think Todd could have made the throw Burns made in the 2nd quarter after scrambling and throwing down the sideline? Oh but wait he doesn't know the offense. After seeing this pee-wee offense I think not knowing it is a plus at this point.

After a few hours and beers, I think we take a deep breath and see what happens from here out. We have a favorable schedule and should continue to win until we meet Georgia.

Tough game, but Bama gave us the blue print for victory there. Our d is better than their's as well.

Then Bama. We would be 10-1 and they will have at least 1 loss as well.

I hate the O and think the Guru should be fired. Having said that, we are in a good spot and we will continue until the end.

We could easily be ranked in the top five by year end.

Hows that for pumping.

From another blog(sorry Jay)- Franklin says 60% of the offense that was installed has been removed and they will remove another 30% this week. So by my poor math that leaves 10% of an offense that was supposed to be easy to learn? I am speechless. I want to like Franklin but these type of comments have me laughing to keep from crying. When does basketball season start?

Jay, I'm going to make this as kid freindly as I can....

Chris Todd can NOT MAKE THE THROWS NOR THE RUNS. So what does that leave? He can get the snap count?

Did you watch the game Jay? Did you see the balls floating into coverage? Did you see the balls that were thrown on such a loop that coverage was able to get there (see Dunn vs LSU)???????

Take Chris Todd and his Middle School arm and get him a baseball cap. Give this offense to Kodi Burns and lets be good the next two years.

Bottom line, Chris Todd doesn't have the arm, the legs nor the talent to be a CHAMPIONSHIP quarter back in the SEC....Maybe Troy, but not Auburn.....Chris in Inverness, Al.

On the issue of the divide between the offense and defense, I don't think we should have that yet. I mean the offense did score the go-ahead touchdown against LSU late in the 4th. I think we'll get Kodi going against Vandy and he'll carry us to 9-1 into the final games against UGA and UA.

Dear lord, half of you would put this man's head on a stake it seems to me. Now I am just as frustrated with the lack of offensive production, but we are still 5-1 under CTF. I know that is thanks in a very large part to our offense, but we have found ways to win as the players are picking up the offense. You have seen the stats. Troy's stats under CTF did not pick up until after 6 games of his first season. There is a learning curve. You can't expect for an ENTIRELY different system to be installed and the players pick it up easily. I firmly believe that if we had QB that could effectively pass and run this offense then we would be Oklahoma and having an NC season(which isn't out of the entire realm of possibility, but very unlikely I know). With one QB like Colt McCoy and CTF looks like a genius. Todd was that guy, but now is a shadow of his former self. Kodi has great game breaking realities, but he definately isn't on that level yet. Where is your patience?

On the penalties falling on the coaches...

I don't think the penalties are going to go away. I think they come with the system. There are way too many moving parts, something is bound to fail.

We don't huddle, we get up to the line, fake the snap, look to the sideline, decipher the play from the spastic moving people on the sideline, get back set, usually put someone in motion and then snap the ball.

Hell, I almost jumped offsides typing this comment.

Defense wins Championships. This reminds me of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens. Just hoping Trent Dilfer did not mess up. That team went 5 games without a touchdown. Not that this is the NFL but sometimes they are close. Just don't let the offense make too many mistakes and they will find a way to win.

The first quarter was a great example of how a team can use this offense and make it work.

I think Chris Todd works very hard and is limited by an injury that doesn't allow you to come back to full potential. I agree with J's assessment that he could be kind of like Trent Dilfer for the Ravens in 2002 who was a QB that struggled some while the defense on that team was dominating. Except the Ravens didn't ask him to be a big part of things. Auburn needs the QB to do big things.

I think Kodi Burns is an exciting player, who is frustrated with the lack of creativity in his called plays. On the other hand, he reminds me a lot of Vince Young - one read and run. Which won Texas a lot of games.

I haven't lost faith in TF yet. No matter what he or the other coaches said pre-season, this is a completely new offense and as easy as it may be to understand, it can't be that easy. I mean, there are 20 some guys who all have to understand the plays and their individual roles completely before this or any other system is going to roll smoothly. I see improvements, although I will admit they seem to have been isolated to the first halves of the last few games. And Kodi Burns is just a better athlete with an uninjured arm. Sorry but Chris Todd has to sit.

But is it really? Does Tony really not know how to run the offense he sold for $3,000 for years? What else are you going to do to seal the game as Kodi and Billings did in the end? Run left or right with Ben Tate? Yuck. Frankling has to ask for permission to call that play. No lie.

I don't think Franklin has to ask permission all throughout the game. I think he had to ask permission to throw with two minutes left inside our own five, which i have no problem with.

Franklin knows Todd gets the offense. We ALL know Todd doesn't have the most important physical tool anymore. Franklin also has so confidence in Kodi as evidenced by his lack of playing time until Tubs steps in and also his comments that JGT highlighted.

Nall and Franklin are butting heads. Bottom line. This isn't Shane from Center Point talking. He has something legit to discuss today.

Tommy Tuberville explaining his decision to infuse Kodi Burns. Why things became so incredibly conservative during the second half. Why Franklin is asking him for permission. Why there are so many penalties and mental errors week after week.

Then the same questions for Franklin.

Then it comes to Rhoads and it's like ... "Hey, Paul. So your defense was outstanding again. Your guys scored again. What do you think about the offense?"

The thing is I didnt see why we had to blow the whole thing up...Brandon Cox won big games but he couldnt beat you with his arm....I think if we had the running game and some pro set passing plays that allowed Kodi to scramble and innovate we would be in a much better situation and probably 5-0. We cant keep this up much longer although there is a shot we enter the UGA 9 - 1......Here is my biggest two points....1) This is too good a defense to waste with this pitiful offense and 2) How easy must it be to game plan for Auburn's offense!

Jay, poor, poor Chris Todd didn't understand why he got pulled? This is why stunk it up in the 2nd half? What about a qb that has a nice 1st game, maybe not all world but every bit as good as his competition, yet his reward is getting benched for the better part of the next 4 games? You think that might have had an effect on kodi?

I don't think I'm going to spend too much time feeling sorry for Todd. He is the luckiest sob on the planet to even have a scholarship at auburn and has been the benefactor of some of the most Mis guided and inexplicable loyalty ever seen. Letting kodi get a long overdue opportunity has nothing to do with todd's lame arm. Enough already with this reclamation project.

I thought I made a mistake once but I was wrong.

I am so tired of Hugh Nall. I wouldn't be surprised if Crudup's sources aren't correct. Something happens with every offensive coordinator we get to make them go mysteriously conservative if Auburn gets a 1 point lead.

I personally don't understand why Tommy Tuberville always seems to play not to lose rather than drive a stake in somebody's heart when he has the chance. Riverboat Gambler my butt. If he plays poker I'll bet he doesn't raise with less than a pair of aces or kings.
