Welcome to Tiger Stadium

Hey everyone. We have arrived here at LSU's Tiger Stadium, where a lot of people are outside drinking heavily.

Heard on my way in: ``We've finished the Absolut. Now it's time for Seagram's."

PRE-GAME UPDATES:
  • Eltoro Freeman is starting at weak-side linebacker.

  • Hot Carter is starting at strong end.

  • Anthony Gulley now is wearing the No. 8 jersey.

Freep,

Does LSU miss your definition of decent as well?

My one weekend 16 game playoff makes a lot of sense. Every single game will be played in the same stadium all on one weekend. Can you imagine? You watch Auburn play. If they win, they may have to play the following game. There are only 15 games in a 16 team playoff, so we could have the entire playoff over in less than 48 hours.

Your nuts SteveFC, nuts

second on the nuts motion.

Watching this game should further prove that Auburn's offense going downhill is not just a strength of schedule thing. We looked better on O against this team than either UF or Bama has.

4:49 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Hey, I may be crazy, but I solved the playoff thing and I handled it without changing the bowls. It is just that the top 16 teams go to one bowl. We could even let them go to the place that needs help the most. Can you imagine the Katrina bowl playoff in New Orleans? It would really stink for the teams that draw the 3a.m. games though.

Blogger §teveFC said...

Compare and contrast our offense against Kentucky and Bama's offense against Kentucky. 500 words or less. This is an open book test.

4:51 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I cannot believe that David Palmer is the closest thing to a Heisman winner that Bama has had. I would have put about half a dozen players from our 2004 team ahead of him.

4:53 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Ingram has 72 yards.

Heisman front-runner.

4:55 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Thats easy Steve, Bama scored we didn't

4:56 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

IV,

I'll answer that question in about 5 hours. . . ;-]

4:56 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Freep,

Where do you have LSU ranked in the SEC now? Upper half or lower half?

4:58 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

OK, point made.

LSU is the only decent team remaining on Bama's schedule.

But they aren't as good a team as they were in, say, 2005. Which was the point of my original post: Bama may not be any better than they were that season, but there's not a 2005-equivalent LSU or AU waiting for them at the end of the year.

Why does Alabama's field look like a sand-box? It looks like they play games 5 days a week at B-D.

5:02 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

There aren't many weak links on the UAT defense, but it looks like Kareem Jackson might be one.

That's a great defense. They make you go through hell to get points, and when you think you might get some, they make a big play.

5:05 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Maybe they have been practicing for Steve's playoff Aufan

5:06 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

LOL, '87. I didn't think about that. Steve must have Nikki on speed-dial.

5:08 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

Jet,
To score on their D, big plays for TD's are a must. They will only have a few plays a game to hit them on, a team will have to be razor-sharp to pull it off. I don't see many long, sustained drives against the Evil Empire.

5:11 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

TN would love to have that missed FG from the first half about now.

5:15 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

AUfan ...

Exactly. You know you've got a heck of defense when you don't have a first down in the second half, and you would be stunned to lose.

5:16 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

UAT's D is scary good. In pains me to say it, but it's true.

5:20 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Gulf ...

I was going to say I didn't think they'd make this FG, and they didn't. Lincoln is struggling.

5:21 PM  
Blogger Bryan the emailer said...

Hope to God I am wrong guys but heard directly from a player that Chris Todd is out tonight.

5:25 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That field goal was huge. I hate games where we are ahead by 6 for most of the game. We had a game against LSU like that known as the earthquake game, I believe.

5:26 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

Two possession game = game over for TN. Might be ugly, but another win for UAT.

5:26 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

Yeah, sure he is. ;]

5:27 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Reemer got a hand around? Are you allowed to say that on TV?

5:30 PM  
Blogger just another scottie said...

I heard T. Cody ate Chris Todd.

5:30 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

JayGT - we'll be leaving our hotel and walking over there to join you in just a couple of minutes.

I still feel like AU is going to get clobbered. I hope I am so very wrong.

5:32 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Ingram's numbers are limited based on two facts:
1) Tennessee has dominated time of possession
2) Tennessee is a top 5 SEC defense

I'd hate to see him win it because it'll be one more thing Bammers never shut up about, but I'm not ready to write him off yet. Tebow hasn't played a great game yet and Tim Brando says it's his to lose.

Go figure.

5:34 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That was one impressive run by Ingram.

5:35 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

P.S. Lane Kiffin may talk a lot, but he is going to be very good at Tennessee. The future their is bright.

5:35 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

THT, I share your sense of impending ugliness.

Hopefully, we will be pleasantly surprised.

5:37 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Any chance that Todd and Elroy have been exchanging notes?

5:37 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Ingram is very good, but he deserves the Heisman about as much as Obama deserved a Nobel Peace Prize.

5:37 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

The future there is bright? Yep. Bright orange.

5:39 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Obama for the Nobel Prize? I didn't know they gave a Nobel Prize in B.S. Interesting.

5:39 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

You can't convince me that INgram deserves Heisman over CJ Spiller (who probably won't win it either)

5:40 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That fumble there was important for the Heisman talk.

5:40 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

This is the first game in less than a week that I've expected Auburn to roll.

5:41 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Does a close win change poll positions?

5:45 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

TD UT

5:47 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Interesting...

5:47 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

Winning ugly is back.

5:47 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

Sensi, I don't think Bama looks as dominant as they did earlier in the year. Their offense seems to be regressing, but the defense is outstanding.

That Bama/UF game looks more and more interesting.

5:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Dion Lewis of Pitt has looked better than Ingram.

Of course, Ingram may pad his stats when he plays against our leaky defense.

5:49 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

Wow.

5:49 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Holy Julie Jones!!!

5:50 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

They have certainly regressed on offense. Wonder what the issue is?

5:52 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Need a double move over there.

5:53 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

GO VOLS!!!!!

5:53 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Anyone hear some toilets flush in Alabama?

5:54 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

He just called Bama Auburn.

And holy hell if Tenn wins this.

5:54 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

HOLY MOLY!!!!

5:55 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Man, this would be a tough loss for the Tied.

5:55 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Wow, what a finish!!!

5:57 PM  
Blogger AUfan said...

DAMN

5:57 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Jeezus, comeon Tenn, you can't do anything right.

5:57 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Apparently Eltoro will start.

5:58 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

What a finish.

5:58 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

Surprised??? Of course not!

5:59 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

Once upon a time champions won like this. Now we expect high powered offenses putting up big numbers to impress pollsters. This was old fashioned SEC football.

5:59 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Oooh Cody, nice man boobs.

5:59 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Eltoro is starting tonight.

6:00 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

what is a curmugeon???? And how do you spell it????

6:01 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That would have been a BS penalty. Game was over. No reason to screw around with a meaningless penalty that didn't decide the game. I wish college football would get rid of some of these BS penalties.

6:02 PM  
Blogger GulfShoresTiger said...

Eltoro starting? Wow. He must have had a great week of practice.

6:02 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Well time to focus on our game...hopefully we start the turn around tonight.

6:04 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

They may believe that Eltoro will at least be in position to make plays which is better than what had been happening.

6:07 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

So, is it all Todzilla, or does Caudle win it for us?

6:07 PM  
Blogger just another scottie said...

heard something about Herring being dinged up--what say you Jay?

Is this why Eltoro is starting?

6:07 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

What I don't understand is why it took so long to locate the ball after the block.

Wow, just thought of this - if it hadn't gone past the LOS and UT recovered it, then they would have had another chance to kick it with :00 on the clock, and 15 yards closer (with the Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty on Cody, of course).

6:08 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

The SEC refs this year can't avoid controversy on the CBS game.

6:08 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I'm disappointed in the outcome to the UT-Bama game.

6:09 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

I'm not so sure ... kick ... ends possession ... UAT recovers ... 15 yard penalty ... one untimed down with UAT's ball is my belief.

6:10 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

It was 3rd down, so if UT had recovered, then it's a different story, but apparently nobody knew where the ball was.

6:11 PM  
Blogger michael said...

SHOOT ME IN THE FACE!!!

6:13 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

It's a no call penalty in my mind, but RK, you would be correct if UT recovered the ball -- behind the line of scrimamge.

6:14 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Here's the truth Ruth: deep down, I may have actually been happier to see UT win today than to see Auburn.

Why, with a 1st down, 40 seconds left, and a length challenged kicker, do you not try ot get more yardage/ 45 yard field goal was too long for Lincoln... had to kick it low... you saw what happened. Kills me.

6:15 PM  
Blogger just another scottie said...

yes--that sounds right. But since they all had no idea where the ball was, it's a moot point.

But I suspect we won't see Cody rip his helmet off again.

Hope the guys can dig down deep tonight--gonna take something special to come away with a win tonight.

WDE!

6:16 PM  
Blogger michael said...

So I guess we can put to rest the "weak competition" argument for Auburn's first five games.

6:17 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Damn Damn Damn.....UT almost, almost...Our time now!!!!!!!!! Beat the imposter Tigers. War Eagle!!!!!

6:18 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

OK AU Tigers = Prove me wrong- I will eat hot sauce on my crow - and like it.

6:18 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Yes, as brilliant as UT managed the game in the first 59:15, they screwed the pooch in the final :45.

Plenty of time to have gotten closer, or at least take a couple of shots at it.

6:20 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Git'er done Auburn.

6:20 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

seriously Michael, WVU is 6-1 and we all just saw what Tenn can do.

6:20 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

OT 'Cane's vs. Clem & Son. Hard call.... but since I HATE the U go Tigers.

6:23 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Oh Yea.... Nice throw for Clem & Son

6:24 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

I'll disagree ... more plays were more opportunities for UT to screw up ... in college, you get the ball inside the 30, needing a FG to win, the offense and the coaches have done their job.

6:24 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

Heard a rumor that Todd is out. Can't be true.

6:25 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Jay G- How does Chris Todd look in warmpups tonight?

6:25 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Didn't see who it was that made the hit on Stocker on that last UT pass, but he won the game for 'em.

There was nothing between Stocker and the endzone if he'd missed.

Good game, what I saw of it. Let's hope we can take better advantage of our opportunities in Red Stick tonight.

6:27 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Maybe Todd is out of bad luck - that's all I could imagine. No way he is out.

6:27 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I knew Auburn in white jersey's was too good to be true!

6:30 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

It's time!

6:32 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Why did this game have to be on ESPN2?

6:32 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Agreed. It's time to whip some bayou tigers!

6:32 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

because we all love Bob Davies.

6:33 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Here's to Chris Todd bouncing back this week.

6:33 PM
