First Quarter, AU 3-0

We're discussing the first quarter of Auburn's game at West Virginia.
  • AUBURN 3, WVU 0: Wes Byrum 19 FG. That's the new Auburn. They're running I, ace and the occasional shotgun formation. This drive stalled at the 1-yard line, but it lasted 20 plays and 9:54. I haven't seen that from the Tigers this year: Toughness.

It was in the pre-game interview on the radio.

I don't know if they archive it, and I don't have the exact quote.

Wow, we are 118th in the NCAA in redzone offense. 15 scores in 25 attempts.

It's nice to see a sustained drive that actually GAINS yards, rather than losing them

I think I notice a tad bit more power football going on.

Ugh. We won't win this one on field goals.

7:05 PM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

All right guys. That was a great first drive except for our problem all year of not finishing it. The offensive line is getting a push and we are running it up the middle. That is Auburn Football.

Now come on D. Go out and play.

7:05 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Our redzone struggles still continue. I don't get it. We can't get 4 yards in 3 plays. It's been that way all year long.

I hope this doesn't come back to haunt us.

Nice looking drive until the very end.

Well ... that wasn't terrible.

Nice to see that long drive. Now we need the d to get the ball back!

Let's see, Vandy plugged the middle on the first drive against them. Anything here seem familiar?!

Awesome Chick-Fil-A commercial with Bo.

7:07 PM

I am thrilled,regardless of the field goal. All I really wanted to see was us be able to move the ball and run some clock.

7:07 PM  
Blogger James in Auburn said...

Yes the drive looked good, damn good, except for the debacle of a third down play on the goal line.

Au is right, we won't win by settling for FGs. CTT need to GAMBLE some, and IMO that was a good place to roll those dice.

7:07 PM  
Blogger Scott M. Brannan said...

the BO commercical was pretty bad ass. pimp yo.

7:08 PM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

I disagree about going for it. The field goal was the right call because we were more than a yard out.

7:09 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Tuberville is making a statement:

If he's going down, he's going down running what he likes.

7:09 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I don't think this will be like the Vandy game and we take what was working, then suddenly go away from it for the rest of the game.

However at some point, Kodi is going to have to throw the ball...as scary as that thought is.

7:09 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

i just think Auburn should have tried for the TD, because the way WVU moved the ball, i have a feeling they won't be settling for field goals all that often.

7:10 PM

I'm fine with the FG call...I just think it's not good that we can't get 4 yards in 3 plays when we need it.
