Auburn vs. Tennessee game time announced

Hey everyone. Everyone who had "night game" in the AU/UT pool is feeling mighty good about things right now.

ESPN has picked up the game and will televise it beginning at 6:45 p.m. CDT on Oct. 3. The game will be played in Neyland Stadium, a large facility that holds lots of fans, and should provide an intriguing matchup.

Tennessee's power-run game could be an issue for the Tigers' defensive front.

Auburn's multi-dimensional offense could be an issue for Tennessee's linebackers.

Something to consider for the Arkansas game on Oct. 10:

CBS has a doubleheader that day. That means Fox Sports gets an 11 a.m. game to go along with the regular 11 a.m. SEC Network game.

Here's your SEC lineup that weekend:
*Auburn at Arkansas
*Florida at LSU
*Ole Miss at Alabama
*Tennessee at Georgia
*Houston at MSU
*Kentucky at USC

I predict Auburn will be in one of those early slots that week. That's my hope.

My concern with Tennessee is them wearing out our linebackers. I think we are okay depth wise on the defensive line.

I am counting on us simply outscoring Tennessee.

mytommyd - for real. When you realize where he was in his route when the ball was thrown, it just doesn't get any more precise than that. I know I haven't seen it all, but I have never seen a route like that run even in the pros. Usually timing routes involve quick stops or outs, not skinny posts 1 yard from the back of the endzone. Beautiful

Florida's offense isn't the same without Percy Harvey:) They rely too much on Tebow running and without a go to receiver, they had issues.

We will have to be able to pass against Tennessee and FAH may have a good game in that one.

1:29 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Does ESPN have two night games planned for the Arky / AU game week? If so, I'm fairly sure ESPN gets the next two after CBS, and I would have to imagine we would make the top 4 games that week list. If ESPN only gets one game, then we will be a lock for an 11am time slot.

1:30 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I missed the UT game. So all of a sudden they have a for real offense? Because for all our D's trouble, it is hard to imagine they are that far below the level of UCLA.

And I doubt UT and their fans will be as up for a game this year as they were for the Florida game.

UT can run the ball at least fairly well. Their big problem is passing.

This is how I see Oct 10:

*Florida at LSU -3:30 CBS
*Ole Miss at Alabama -7:45 ESPN
*Tennessee at Georgia -8:00 CBS
*Houston at MSU -11:00 am FoxSports
*Kentucky at USC - 11:30 SECNetwork

I want an early game on the 10th too, since I'm going to a concert that night.

UT's D and it being our 1st road game has me worried about the trip up there. I know their passing game is bad, but this team hasn't played on the road yet and definately hasn't played against a D that good.

Ball State @ Auburn could be the most lopsided game I've ever covered.

As far as predictions go, Clubber Lang would say: ``Pain."

1:34 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

UT's running game can control the clock if we don't tackle better, and make that a much shorter game for our offense.

1:34 PM

Peter- I agree with that list except flip the Bama/Ole Miss game with the UT/UGA game.

1:35 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I am not as worried about Tennessee as I am Arakansas, even though Arkansas doesn't have a defense. We play them after Tennessee and we will likely be beat up. Arkansas is one of the teams that might match us score for score and our depth issues may come into play then.

1:35 PM

Tennessee's running game is a different monster than WV. WV was all about speed and the added threat of Brown running. I will try not to have nightmares of Crompton running.

1:37 PM

Different sort of problems, Jhag. Apples and Oranges. Florida ran all day over UT, UF's passing game is not that good, and it showed Saturday. I daresay we will matchup better offensively.

I am worried about the Tenn game, but I worry about all SEC games. I don't think Tenn will bring the intensity to the Auburn game that they brought to the FLa. game. IF the BIG IF we improve on tackling we should win a close game against them.

I was at that La Monroe 73-7 game as well.

Me and a friend of mine tried to get a "Marshall Thornton" chant going when we got down to the goalline late in the game. He carried it once and was stopped before the endzone and someone else scored.

Auburn scored a touchdown on every possession the last time Ball State played in J-H.

Auburn's offense is better now. Ball State's defense is worse now.

I was at the last Ball State game as well, fun for the first few minutes... then got boring.

I feel better about the UT game than I did the WVU game. UT's running backs are more comparable to Dixon than they are two Devine, we controlled MSU's running game for most of that game.

I would love to see Caudle or Kodi get lots of snaps at QB versus Ball State. We can beat Ball State with the RFYLK offense, but not Tennessee.

Hello all. My boys and I are still drying out from Saturday. It was worth it for that game.

As far as the defensive challenges UT presents, my belief is that they are not in the same league as WVU by any stretch. I think WVU is the best offense AU will face all year.

Go ahead, call me a meshuggana, but barring an injury to that man-child QB and his team of fleet footed smurfs, WVU will win the Big East and dominate the rest of their 2009 opponents.

Blogger michael said...

Wisner had a block that turned Fannin's big gain into a touchdown. I love how our receivers are blocking down field this year.

As far as UT's running game, I think our d tackles and Bynes are different from what we have been fielding in the past at those positions. I think they will fair much better against a traditional power running game than they did against W Va. In the past, when we had 200 lb middle linebackers, this would not have been the case.

I am more worried about their defense. In the old days, I would have said good D always gets the best of good O. In this topsy turvy world though, I am not sure. I have no idea what to expect in that game.

2:00 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Also, mad props to #96 Chris Humphries. On our first kickoff, dude ran down like a mad man and demolished someone. He wasn't even going for the ball carrier. W Va figured it out and then proceeded to knock him down the next couple of kickoffs until he was finally knocked out cold. I hope he is alright.

But I rewound every kickoff and said "Check out 96! Dude has guts!" So I looked up his name, and now I have a warm spot in my heart for him. Go Chris Humphries!

2:03 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Michael - I loved your 50 lb post earlier today which I just stumbled upon.

And to answer your question, we would have had to use 1,176 footballs per play for each of the 87,000 game balls to have been "official."

Now y'all excuse me while I get back to work. I'm obviously no good to HABOTN anymore. What a failure.

2:04 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

One thing we know is that the UT practice offense will in no way be able to replicate the speed of our offense. I think a quarter and a half of our offense will have any and every team gasping. It even eventually wore down WVU. And I think it took THEM until the 4th quarter because they get to practice against it

2:05 PM  
Blogger michael said...

THT - thanks for crunching the numbers on that one. I knew I could count on you!

(of course, I don't believe in any of these numbers since I have never counted to them before, but that is a whole 'nother deal)

2:11 PM  
Blogger Jet says Save the Couches! said...

Gus > Monte.

Monte uses the Tampa 2, but Gus uses the South Beach 3. Works every time,

I suspect Saturday will be canktaculously ugly. Hopefully we can get a 3 TD lead and get the reserves out there. No need to use this game to build a poll resume. Regardless of UT's station in life, we'll get in the poll if we win there. The poll is not my worry.

If you look at my 50 lb post again, you will see that immediately after it, rk said, "I wouldn't care if Warren Moon said the same thing."

Yes Ronnie Brown's HS team name is the Purple Hurricane.

That's strange, Fitzgerald is also the Purple Hurricanes. I didn't realize it was that popular of a mascot in GA.

Hornet, you down for a little Vol Navy action?

oh, and are you staying with me?

Wes - the presence of 32 teeth in my head hurts my cause as well

Scottie -- I'm staying with the west coast cowboy...but I'm definitely joining the Navy

By the way, just a word of advice, never order anything from FYE.com.

I pre-ordered the Beatles stereo box set in August for the 9/9 release. I still haven't gotten it and it's on back order and they might not have it in the next 30 days.

I wrongly assumed if I pre-ordered something that it reserved it for me and it wouldn't go on back order.

I'll even bring goodies.

Now Hoopie, you should never accuse Bear Bryant of being drunk. Every state trooper in the state of Alabama back then knew Bear wasn't drunk. I believe it was official departmental policy.

If anyone is interested Mid TN State is on ESPNU showing the last few of the MD game who they beat

The C-ville Purple Hurricane is hurting this year. We've made the playoffs 10 of the last 11 years. The only year we didn't was when we moved up to 3A. We're spoiled and won't make the playoffs this year. A lot of the football talent now gets siphoned off to play only baseball at the HS level and it is catching up with us.

Fitzgerald is the Purple Hurricanes(plural).

My Dad was a Bammer. I was a kid and witnessed the inebriation after a gathering in Bham. This was around 1967.

I like how Rece Davis was talking about how positive of a week it was for the ACC with Va. Tech beating Nebraska and FSU taking apart BYU. True enough I suppose, but he neglected to say that MTSU beat Maryland and Southern Miss beat Virginia. No surpise at that last one, but the fact remains that ACC schools have lost to at least four non-BCS schools that I know of, and two of those were 1-AA.

The ACC needs the U to win its next two games against Va. Tech and Oklahome...badly.

4:57 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

Whats up HOTTIES!!! Got my tickets for the AU Old Miss game can't wait.

Blogger Wade said...

Anyone hear Trooper Taylor drop the "N" word (allegedly) on ESPN last Saturday?

Finebaum has the UAT villagers out with the pitch forks and they are looking for Trooper.

5:06 PM  
Blogger ballin said...

Yep, Bammers are beginning to worry.

5:13 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

E Bro...Methinks the ACC is teetering and will fall into mediocrity again.

5:14 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

FBomb always uses the Racial thing to fire people up, and get a bunch of callers in to sound so stupid.

It doesn't surprise me at all that he is making a big deal out of it.

5:14 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Wade, I tried. I really did. I just can't care too much about Troop dropping the N word.

5:16 PM  
Blogger E's Bro said...

I thought I heard Troop say that, but figured there was no way ESPN would show that (because it was a taped segment) if he really did say that. But yes, it did sound like he used that word.

Words don't kill people, people do. Context matters too, so will somebody tell Finebaum to please STFU in the nicest way possible.

5:18 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well, that only made me feel a wee bit better, but I guess that's better than not feeling a wee bit better.

Blogger AU MikeyC said...

steve, my thoughts are if the players don't care why should anyone els.

5:18 PM  
Blogger coosa said...

I hate night games, I hate espn, not too fond of TN. Oughta be a lot of fun that weekend. I just hope the ARK game doesn't wind up on espnu; that's the only network that carries sec games that isn't HD on DTV.

I'm thinking now that it will be week 8 before we play a ranked team. If you have to beat a ranked team to deserve to be ranked, we may have a long wait. Guess it doesn't really matter.

I think our defense can deal with TN much better than they did WV. I feel much more optimistic today about our season for some reason. I said before the season started that I thought we had better first string players than 8 of the teams we would play. Anybody agree with me now?

5:23 PM  
Blogger dan dan the AU fan said...

Which four teams have better players in you opinion?

5:25 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I think our D can deal with UT better than WVU, but I think the UT D can also deal with us much better than anyone we've faced yet.

Plus it's on the road.

5:28 PM  
Blogger dan dan the AU fan said...

Agreed RK, I would imagine that our defensive plan for UT will be similar to WVU's plan against us. Stop the run and make 'em pass to beat us.

5:33 PM  
Blogger dan dan the AU fan said...

Our offensive strategy will be to stay away from #14.

5:34 PM  
Blogger E's Bro said...

If UT does stop the run and we have to beat them with the pass, probably gonna be a long night for our offense. I don't want to HAVE to throw to win against Eric Berry and that Tampa 2 secondary.

5:35 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

You crackers need to lighten up on the N-word. It is actually one of the funniest words in the world. Want proof?

Blogger schofunk said...

If anyone is interested, I'm trying to sell my Ball State, Ole Miss, and Furman tickets. I can't go to the Ole Miss game and really can't afford to travel for the others. Make me an offer if you're interested.

Jay G, I met a former Advertiser man today. I was in Tallassee Tribune and met with Mr. Kevin Taylor. Auburn Graduate. Good man.

Eddie's Bro,

That's why that game scares me.

5:42 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Schofunk,

How many tickets do you have for each game?

5:46 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I feel better about our chances to beat Ark than UT. Our offense is as good as UGA and our defense is better.

5:56 PM  
Blogger schofunk said...

IV,

I have a pair for each game

5:56 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

At this point I think we are better than Georgia. I also think Arkansas is better than Tennessee, but it would be one of the weirdest games ever. A great offense meets a great defense, while a crappy offense meets a crappy defense.

Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor were young in that vid...

Would the PC police even allow that vid now?

6:03 PM

Probably not. Is is sad because people take life way to seriously these days. It ain't like it's life or death, or maybe it is.

No, I don't think that skit will be allowed today.

I was just looking at SEC statistics. Did you know that Chris Todd has the two longest touchdown passes of the year so far? Of course, we all know they didn't travel too far in the air, but would you have penciled his name in for that or any related statistic at the start of the year?
