Question for Jay G,

Why can't Tuberville consider Ensminger for OC? He seems to be the only guy that has reached and gotten the best out of Kodi Burns.

i like j. powers. this is going to be either one of the most memorable iron bowls in au's history or whimpering end to a season of coulda shoulda.

When thinking back through the many games we have lost this season, and taking the Tony Franklin experiment out of the equation; Bosley summed it up: we simply have had zero breaks this year. Seriously. How many fumbles by (insert opponent here) bounced either directly back to the fumbling party or into the arms of the only other player on their team in the vicinity? Trindon Holliday's multiple kickoff miscues immediately come to mind. My very first game in Jordan-Hare was the '89 Florida State game that was won like so many Auburn games against higher-ranked teams by a last second field goal. This year two missed extra points have been the difference in as many games. While most of our travails have been self-inflicted, Lady Luck's choice to smile elsewhere has also played a big role in this disaster of a season.

I thought Nall ended 2003 with a great game. What happened that he was not considered and will not be considered for this year. He said that year, that he had run his offense in the 03 Bama game and it worked out pretty well.

Anonymous Crudup said...

I haven't talked to an Alabama fan yet face to face that isn't worried about this "non-rivalry" game. Everybody who has watched the games this fall has realized that these teams actually match up well with Auburn being seemingly healthy now.

There's an Alabama X factor and his last name is Jones. The Auburn X factor is a mystery but could be a number of individuals who may not have been given many chances this year due to inept coaching by Tubs and Gran.

17 pts? It could happen but I don't see it without an Auburn implosion.

When I was in school at AU in the 80's there was a dry cleaner just over the railroad track on Donahue. They would always have sayings on their sign out front.
My favorite was a simple Pat Dye quote "Wo-uh Eagle"

8:44 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

Mr. Sensible, I don't think it would be politically correct for Ensminger to be considered. I don't think he has ever been given a fair shot at being the OC and he has OC experience, but the fans tend to blame 2003 on him and Nall, which I don't think is necessarily justified. They were told to run Petrino's system.

Kris, I disagree. We could have easily have lost two more games this season: UT and MSU.

War Eagle Girl, Ensminger was never the OC or co-OC.

8:45 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

Som e of my favorites of the Pat Dye quote library are "hindsight is 50/50" and "We need to-a do-a better blockalin and tacklelin". Pat is a man's man.

Ran into Stan White today in Mobile at the Convention Center. Gave him a "WAR EAGLE, STAN!" I think I scared him a little because his eyes bugged but he gathered himself and said War Eagle back. If he hadn't acted so startled I was going to go in for a high-five. Maybe next time.

I have a friend who son is in the AU band. I asked if we are going to play our video before the game starts since this is our home game. Maybe march around the field like in Auburn. If UAT wins, then they can claim the field back.

Steve-I mean have more than 5 plays with two of them handing off to Tate.

I do feel next year, with the wr's coming in, we should be able to open the field up with a lot more ease. Could be wrong, but this far out, i'm going with it.

Now back to the game.

Actually Mon..I stated that UGA fans aren't consumed with the idea of replacing the starters with the latest flavor of sub on the bench like AU fans do.

Many UGA are disappointed that they didn't go undefeated against the tuffest schedule in CFB. They now think that CMR is not tuff enough of a coach. They don't understand that he lost every starter from last season's OL through graduation or injury.

IMO, CMR is a lax disciplinarian. An ex-UGA OL that is a friend of the family got 2 MIPs and only got one game suspensions for each. He was a redshirt freshman starter. Injuries ended his career.

Kodi said the "P" word (patience) and I think he means it. That's good news...he's getting closer to being a real Qb.

9:47 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

wootangclan, we currently have a lot of talent at wide receiver. Incoming recruits will not likely contribute a lot next season. I am sure Frenchy will get some playing time, but somehow we need to get Slaughter, Zachary, and Hawthorne playing up to their abilities. All were highly regarded recruits, higher than those in the incoming class. We just have not brought them along well.

10:25 PM  
Blogger wootangclan said...

After watching them play this year, I just don't think they will be able to play up or be coached up. At WR position you should be able to play well ny your 2nd year, if you are good, if not the team should move on. You either have the ability to separate from coverage or not.

Our guys now get bunched up and 1 man can cover them. When the QB scambles, they don't seem to be able to find an opening. I have seen several times where they just drift the same direction. That is a lack of coaching, but come on. If you'e played that position you should know how to get open.

10:37 PM  
Blogger wootangclan said...

Also-I still think Tubbs will run a spread type offense and the recruits already run these type of offenses. I just think that is big for this offense.

Brandon Cox spoke at the Montgomery QB club and was asked about CTF and how he came across. He said CTF coached every position the 2nd day he was at AU. Position coaches were very angry then according to him.

10:40 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

wootangclan, that is where I think CTT and CTF made a mistake. CTF needed to coach his position coaches first and then let them do their jobs. I think this unique season resulted from CTF's poor management skills. These aren't bad coaches in general. They just needed to understand what he wanted to see with the offense. If you can't teach the coaches, you have no chance of selling an offense to the players.

From Emsminger's comments yesterday, I Believe you will see a somewhat pedestrian first half. Lots of traps and draws, but little in the way of flash. Second half, same look with roll outs on boots that draw their D in and then hit the payday.

He needs Kodi to be patient so that they do not score on D and make it ugly. If the score is within 7 in the fourth, look for us to win.

Faker, I agree the game will be lowwww scoring. How low? Who knows? Could be tied at the end of regulation, 0-0. I wouldn't be there to see it though because I would have already been rushed to the emergency room with an exploded head.

Not Iron Bowl, but this is the first Auburn game I ever went to as a member of the Auburn student body. Ah, memories.

Here is my lowdown on the game.

I already mentioned my idea of Auburn's gameplan and if successful in keeping the score close will also be a win.

However, looking at positions:

Alabama Secondary, - will have very little problem covering our wideouts.

Linebackers - Straight up alabama will beat our TE's. However, good use of play action could be the difference here. Our running backs can make yardage if we can get our linemen to this level.

Dline - Our offensive line will have difficulty moving their line. We will need to focus on play action and draws to be successful.

QBs. Kodi can be successful with his legs if he is patient and does not run every down. He can roll out and bootleg. The Qb draw is a great weapon. To me, the success of this game rides on his shoulders.

Great clip shesaid, that was also my first game as a student at Auburn. Good times.

Defensively:

Our Secondary. Our guys are better than theirs with the exception of Julio. On obvious passing downs, we double him. On the others we take our chances and tackle well.

LBs, mismatch to them if they can get lineman out to block our guys. Our LBs will tackle their RBs if our lineman hold off their lineman.

Our D versus their D line is not a good match.

Best plan is to play 8 in the box and challenge JPWilson to beat us throwing the ball.

Julio is the only guy they have that can get separation.

Special teams could be special. If Tristan or Dunn break one, we could be in business.

Coaching. Sorry, no question who is better here.

In the end, I expect this game to be like the Tennessee game. For both of us.

In other words, Auburn scores 14 and Bama scores 28 or 29.

Just to much in their favor this year.

Jay,

What's this talk of other teams knowing Auburn's play signals? I just heard of this today. Is there any truth to this?

michael's pregame analysis:

Offense: We should have no problem moving the ball. Alabama should be tired from tackling everyone all season. Our O will be well rested from lack of sustained drives over the course of the year

Defense: Once again, Our front seven should be well rested after choosing to stop tackling once they realized this was a lost season. They did this to preserve energy for the Alabama game. This should pay off in a big way. Tubs already said they are not a passing team, so we shouldn't worry about Julio any.

Final score: Auburn 24, Alabama 7
(Arenas will get a return touchdown. Gotta give credit where credit is due)

Jan Terri transcends the Auburn-Alabama rivalry. But for the record, she is an Auburn fan. In fact, her song "Little Brother" barely lost out to "War Eagle" for the school fight song.

OK, had to work awhile. I'm back. Heard Scrabinsky give a good reason why AU can win. Everything will have to go our way. But this being Tuesday, I sy it will. We win the toss, take the ball and drive down their throat and make 'em like it and then never look back.

How about that.

I'd like to quote Pat Dye here, how long will it take you to beat Alabama? "about 60 minutes." We haven't had a good year but we can be better than them for 60 minutes. There's my contribution to 200.
