Not enough beer!

We are coming....it was a stealth thread.

7:55 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

The wet field always favors the offense...the offensive player knows where they are going, the defender has to guess.

7:56 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Where was the friggin flag for holding on the long pass? Coleman got bear hugged...

7:56 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

I'm doin' the best I can between burps......

7:56 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

In hindsight, we shouldn't have deferred.

7:56 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

We need to answer NOW!

7:56 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Digger, there's about 57 mins or so left, the answer really isn't needed right now.

7:57 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

The holding was overly obvious, can't believe there was no flag.

7:57 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

...but I'll take it.

7:57 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We have to do something to keep Brown from getting outside the pocket and making plays.

7:58 PM

pull up ya boots and lets go!

come on Auburn!

7:58 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Jeez looked like he took a knee

7:59 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Our kickoff and kickoff coverage teams aren't so good.

7:59 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Here we go!!

7:59 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Nice, a little trickeration

7:59 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Trott and Hawthorne started.

8:00 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

This needs to be a power game... a Tate game... speed gets somewhat neutralized by the wet field...

8:00 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Still not happy with the tempo evidently

8:01 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

step into your dang throws!

8:01 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Davies SUXS

8:02 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Not a very productive possession.

8:02 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Straight ahead power running is what we need.

TACKLE!!!!!

8:03 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Chris Todd last week and this week isn't getting his feet set when he throws the ball...and we aren't getting good tackling on Brown.

8:03 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

We can't miss tackles.

8:03 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

c'mon... we've got to tackle better

8:03 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Ouch

8:03 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

Devine. He was FAH before McAleb was FAH.

8:04 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Adversity has come to call..... Now we will see what we are made of.

8:04 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

our defense might as well have stayed in the dang locker room

8:04 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Now it's time for the "we have to answer NOW" post.

8:06 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

140 yards given up by our D in 5 mins.

8:06 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

What?

8:06 PM  
Blogger Jet says Save the Couches! said...

Please inform the D that conscientiously objecting to tackle won't hold up

8:08 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

We need to run right up the middle against the 3-3-5, this outside running isn't goin to work.

8:09 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Nice catch by Smith

8:10 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

What is this ole bs the o line is doing?

8:13 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

I hate field goals but I guess we need points

8:15 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

we look pitiful so far... D damn well better step it up

8:16 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Our KO coverage is terrible.

8:16 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We maybe the worst on kickoffs and punts of any team in the country.

They really don't need a short field.

8:17 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

are you kidding me??

8:17 PM  
Blogger Dave in Denver said...

I saw a missed tackle by Freeman on that last TD run

8:17 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

45 yards? What is the deal with our non-special teams?

8:17 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That helps!

8:17 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

YES YES YES

8:17 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Freeman had a huge missed tackle on that long run.

8:18 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

score now, dadgumit!

8:18 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

O lione is not coming off the ball WHY?

8:18 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That 3-3-5 D is keeping the front six up pretty close.

8:19 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

great play call so close.

8:20 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Set your feet Burns, set your f'n feet.

8:21 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Now we know why Kodi is the Wildcar quarterback

8:21 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Kodi had that guy wide freakin open!!!

8:22 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

TOUCHDOWN AUBURN

8:22 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

The play by play guy is beyond awful... that's now the 4th time he's called a guy by the wrong name..

8:22 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

Now lets do something on the kickoff and get a stop!!!

8:22 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

To this point we are staring Adversity right dead in the eyes.

8:22 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I didn't think Todd could be this slick in the passing game. I thought we would see Tate running the ball a lot more.

8:23 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

This definately isn't last years team.

Last years team would have been dead.

8:24 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

.....And not blinking

8:24 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

The FAH stuff isn't something that will get this WV defense. They practive against Noel Devine. We need to be bullies and push the little guys around!!!

8:24 PM

8:24 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

A lot of people don't think about it, but sometimes it's easier to pass on a wet field...the receivers know where they are going...the DB's if they have to adjust it's hard to get traction.

8:25 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Who was that backup fullback, King? I heard the name on the radio. Who the heck is that?

8:25 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

we might as well try an onside kick... We're apparently going to give it to them at midfield anyway, might as well give ourselves a chance to recover the kick

8:25 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Finally a good special teams stop.

8:25 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

OK "D" lets do it

8:26 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

TACKLE

8:26 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Georgia taking over the game from Ark, up 30-21...as I type that Devine just runs through us.

8:26 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

devine isn't having a problem running...

8:27 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We just let that guy hang out there.

8:28 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We need to protect the middle of the field.

8:28 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Ethridge!!!!! Where are you?

8:29 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We can't tackle...and every time Brown rolls out we can't cover.

8:30 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Piss poor job out there tackling.

8:31 PM  
Blogger Stuart said...

Ted Roof needs to be fired if he can't teach tackling any better than this.

8:31 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I haven't seen an AU defense play this bad in a very, very long time... pitiful

8:31 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

This defense left it in the locker room or somewhere. This is pitiful

8:31 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

WVU over 200 yards in the 1st quarter.

8:32 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

That coach is just grinning this is too easy.

8:32 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Hope it is 38 point first Q after our next possession

8:33 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

The way the D is reacting to the 1st team with speed we've played all year, time to revise expectations unless something fires them up.

8:34 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Todd needs to throw that screen a whole lot quicker than he has been.

8:35 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Should have been picked there.

8:36 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

buckle up kids

8:36 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

This is about to get ugly

8:36 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We needed 10 yards...not 7.

8:36 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Who knew Trott would drop one?

8:36 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Trott still can't catch..oh boy

8:36 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Wouldn't have mattered, we didn't need 7 yards.

8:37 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Did the announcing team go to the bar during the delay? They are bad normally - but this is pathetic.

8:38 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Everytime Brown rolls out we are in trouble as their recievers are alone.

8:38 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

A little shocked at the D so far.

8:38 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

The Bull isn't as advertised. So far a lot of noise, but not much substance.

8:39 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

I think Devine just had another kid in between plays.

8:40 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

That's gotta be the worst first quarter in recent Auburn defensive history.

8:40 PM  
Blogger Jet says Save the Couches! said...

Despite all the flash of our offensive design, you win at football by running successfully, stopping the run and playing solid in special teams.

Other than the FG, we're getting skunked.

8:41 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

If any of you guys see Bramblett in the near future please tell him to just go away.

8:42 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sensi: That was only 219 yards.

8:42 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

AMEN Jet. WOW, just WOW.

8:43 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

The stupid annoucers said Auburn defense has really been on the field a lot. BS they have scored so fast the defense should not even be blowing.

8:43 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We have to have a stop here.

8:44 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

The flag will probably help us, but that was a pathetic effort on our part again.

8:44 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

BYU givin up 53 to FSU, Wow again.

8:45 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Only?

8:45 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

1st good punt return of the year.

8:46 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Good job by the D getting a stop...then the O shoots itself in the foot.

8:46 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

No matter what happens this should at least be one of those learning experience thingies...

8:46 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Todd is gunning it in there.

We need to get stuff on the first two downs.

8:47 PM

Bad

Blogger BigEZ said...

Bad

8:48 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I am very dissapointed in the play calling. He talked about beating the opponent in the mouth, but Malzahn has not made any attempt at running it up the gut with Tate and Smith.

8:49 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Run the frickin football with Tate on first down. Run straight ahead. Cut out the cutesy crap!!!

8:49 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I've noticed in this game, Todd seems to not be getting his feet set, even when he isn't being rushed.

8:49 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

This is a fast defense. You run straight at a fast defense dang gum it!!!

8:50 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I know we are down, but there is plenty of time, we don't have to do crazy stuff just yet.

However, the sound you are hearing are expectations crashing all around.

8:50 PM  
Blogger Stuart said...

It would be nice if McClain would have showed up. The line is getting killed

If all it takes to make the Gus Bus offense look this bad is a 3 man line, Alabama will beat us by 70

8:51 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

I was looking for the Auburn game, I haven't found them yet.

8:52 PM

needed that...

8:53 PM

Now, there is some attitude!!! Now, play ball!!!

8:53 PM

What a shot. I just found them.

Nice work 1 5 !

8:53 PM

Nice play by Neiko. Big-time play.

8:53 PM

Let's go boys, gotta make it work.

8:54 PM

Our feet have many bullet wounds

8:55 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We get our first Ziemba of the game.

8:55 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Ziemba!!!

8:55 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

And there's Ziemba's customary FS, hopefully it's out of his system now.

8:55 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Cannot run, not no how!

8:55 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Note to FAH:

Backwards running = not good

8:55 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Don't give the ball to FAH!!!

8:55 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Neiko may have changed some momentum, but we really need something big to happen for us here.

WVU is showing our LB's how to tackle.

8:56 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Trott pushed for five more, ill take it.

8:56 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Flag?

8:56 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

They were tackling Hawthorne before the ball got there.

8:56 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

How is there not a flag on that?

8:57 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

This has been some horrible officiating.

8:57 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Too bad we couldn't finish that drive.

8:57 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Byrum has found the leg again.

Thank goodness for that.

8:57 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Only down by eight? How the...?

8:57 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

Hawthorne will make a play before he leaves Auburn.

I refuse to believe otherwise.

8:58 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That was Hawthorne that got mugged.

8:58 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

he @$%#@$%#@$ tackled him before the pass got there... WTF....

8:58 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

The Ref's have swallowed their whistle. Hopefully they will poop them out before the 2nd half.

8:59 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

I know who it was. He still could've caught that ball.

8:59 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Guess what? Bramblett ridiculed the officiating.

8:59 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

goodness; these commentators are horrific. Calebb? and I loved how earlier he had a whole conversation about "Todd"; how he lost the job in the fall, worked as a wildcat guy, etc. and how Todd won the battle for QB in the spring. geezus

8:59 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

I think we need to take a deep breathe boys. Ahemmm..I just don't know.

9:00 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

about damn time he kicked one into the endzone...

9:00 PM  
Blogger wes said...

i wouldn't take a touchback against AU no matter what the circumstances.

9:00 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

Shall I assume there's a halftime campfire?

9:01 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

we get a stop here; we'll be ok for the game

9:01 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Come on D, we need a stop.

9:01 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Someone decided to start tackling..for now.

9:01 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

We look scared to attack Brown in the pocket. We can't be.

9:02 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Jock Sanders ate our lunch last year.

9:02 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

My laptop charger just totally died and I had to move to another room with a desktop. I feel like a fish out of water. I am out of sync. I will have to adjust.......just like Auburn has to do!!!!!

9:03 PM

He's back for seconds EZ

9:05 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

missinit is the cause

9:05 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresWarEagle said...

I didn't know WVU had enough money to pay off the refs. But I'm beginning to wonder.

9:06 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I may set up a halftime campfire, but I will not be participating. I have a lot of work to do.

9:06 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

I swear to you I WILL get it together!

9:06 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

I just cannot believe the atrocious tackling so far. I know WV is quick, but so is FAH. The wet field should not contribute to poor angles and grabbing at cloth instead of hitting. i hope and think it will improve

9:07 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Gulfshores, did they also pay off our LB's to not wrap up?

9:07 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

Thanks Jay G....so does Auburn!!!

9:07 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

You should let me be monitor.

9:07 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Halftime should be interesting

9:07 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresWarEagle said...

So, it's missinit's fault. Come on, man. Get your head in the game. Get that battery charged. Plug in. Do something. Anything.

9:07 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I am not satisfied. I demand an increase in quality of play.

9:07 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Good stick.

9:08 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Here's a novel concept... WRAP UP on your tackles!

9:08 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Goggans had a chance to kill the QB.

I'm just amazed at how badly we are doing out there when we can get a tackle or a sack.

9:08 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Pathetic on 3rd and 15.

9:09 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

I can be hall monitor if you need one for campfire at halftime Jay G.

9:09 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

I have never sen such piss poor tackling in my life

9:09 PM

missed tackles are killing us.

9:09 PM

Good Lord!

9:10 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

After about 20 attempts, we finally bring down Brown.

9:10 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

wrap up

9:10 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Lookin like Matt Jones, good grief.

9:11 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Uhm, dear ESPN2 guys, save the feature stories for non-gametime.

9:11 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I wonder what the missed tackle count is up? I bet we have many more missed than made at this point...

9:12 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Onterio tryin to heat up.

9:13 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Orlando I mean.

9:13 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Remember all the talk about the poor footing with UA cleats, Devine is having no problems footing, Mccalebb is.

9:13 PM

Burns to Wisner, what?

9:13 PM

Starting to click a little

9:14 PM

WVU is gassed.

9:14 PM

West Virginia is DONE right now. They have nothing left.

9:14 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

In case you were wondering, that was Todd not Burns on the last pass, the announcers said so.
