Furman @ Auburn, 1st half

Hey everyone. OK, so a moment of self-disclosure. I thought this game started at 1 p.m. I was surprised to see the band out at 12:20 p.m.

Um. Yeah. That's on me.

It's Furman week. So what?

There are no significant roster changes to report. It's a beautiful day here at Jordan-Hare -- sunny, 70ish, not much wind. Sorry you're not here.

  • Auburn first possession: TOUCHDOWN. Darvin Adams 6 pass from Chris Todd. Drive covered 50 yards in six plays. No penalties. Big play was a 26-yard pass to Tommy Trott down the middle. There were four Furman defenders right there. I have no idea how that ball got through. Fannin returned the opening kickoff to the 50.
      AUBURN 7, FURMAN 0

  • Furman first possession: FIELD GOAL. 23 yards. Drive covered 51 yards in 12 plays. Three of them were runs. It's quick passing, crossing routes, quick throws into the flats. Over and over.
      AUBURN 7, FURMAN 3

  • Auburn second possession: TOUCHDOWN. Ben Tate 9 run. Drive covered 80 yards in 8 plays. Todd completed three consecutive passes -- to Eric Smith (3), Smith (10) and D. Adams (20). Then he gained 12 yards on an option keeper. Not too shabby.
      AUBURN 14, FURMAN 3

  • Furman second possession: Three-and-out.

  • Auburn third possession: TOUCHDOWN. Mario Fannin 24 pass from Todd. Drive covered 73 yards in 5 plays. Tigers finish the drive with two long passes -- one to Darvin Adams (21 yards) and then the throw to Fannin.
      AUBURN 21, FURMAN 3

  • Furman third possession: Three-and-out.

  • Auburn fourth possession: TOUCHDOWN. Darvin Adams 23 pass from Chris Todd. Drive covered 55 yards in 4 plays. Two big plays -- a 30-yard run from Fannin and the scoring pass to Adams. It's gettin' ugly.
      AUBURN 28, FURMAN 3

  • Furman fourth possession: Three-and-out.

  • Auburn fifth possession: TOUCHDOWN. Darvin Adams 41 pass from Chris Todd. Drive covered 71 yards in 6 plays. Auburn now has 345 yards of offense and Todd is 12-for-12.
      AUBURN 35, FURMAN 3


  • Furman fifth possession: I'm not paying attention to Furman possessions anymore.

  • Auburn sixth possession: Finally a Furman stop! Auburn's drive dissolved at the AU 32. Todd had his consecutive completion streak ended at 14. Kodi Burns dropped a pass.

  • Auburn seventh possession: TOUCHDOWN. Ben Tate 5 run. Drive covered 56 yards in 5 plays. It's not even competitive.
      AUBURN 42, FURMAN 3

That was nice of Todd to wait on four defenders to converge on Trott before throwing the ball.

Thanks JGT. I appreciate the read!

I'm still looking on Justin TV for someone to host the stream.

Apparently there is a screamer just under the radio booth.

Jhag, save this for basketball season:

someone posted it last basketball season and it showed the video from the jumbo-tron in BEMC. not sure if it will work this year, though. not working today for football.

Maybe we should put in our backups, well if we had backups! Our first teamers seem to have taken this series off.

What's up with Ted Roof's opening drive defense? IMO he is weak and needs serious evaluation this off season.

12:55 PM

It's the same kind of play ... crossing routes.

Did anyone else's mind go to Point Break's Johnny Utah when Stan White mentioned the Utah pass?

That crossing route has killed us all year. That's all GA and Bama need to run.

Any chance we get a punt return?

How many punt return yards has AU accumulated this season. With penalties included, I would say negative yards. I have never seen anything like it.

Do you think there was a chance Rick Furman would not get playing time at Furman?

Get Tate out of this game. I don't care who you replace him with. Let Benton play tailback. Heck, at least he will touch the ball.

1:14 PM

Tate w/ 54 yards. Todd w/ 114

That play was there in the Kentucky game. Boy I know CT wishes he had that throw (UK game) back.

Darvin looking good today.

I heard E Blake's name on consecutive plays.

Can AU ISP get better cameras? I saw an old black and white one at WCOV recently that was the size of a small bus. It might get a better picture than what they're sending.

Jay, better start working on you AP ballot. Since Iowa beat Penn State, you must rank them above Penn State. But since Northwestern beat Iowa, you must rank Northwestern above Iowa. And of course Penn State beat Northwestern, you so you rank Penn State ahead of Northwestern.

Fear the cornpone.

2:02 PM

UGA's looking equally good vs TN Tech, by the way.

Their backup is more likely to throw an INT than Caudle, though.

Question: Should Auburn have run Tate more to pad his stats a little bit better or did Auburn make the right choice letting Chris Todd air it out, helping to both build his confidence and conserve Ben Tate's health?

2:11 PM

I think Gus & Co. are playing it the right way. I'm willing to be that Ben would agree.

2:12 PM

Willing to BET, not be.

I just hope that they play maybe one series to start the 2nd half, then sit til Athens.

2:13 PM

I'm going to blog vaguely during the second half.

If I can get my writing finished before this bad boy is over, I can get home early.

And when you're looking at a 100-6 game, well, getting home early is good.
