SEC championship game was in progress

Hey everyone. Welcome to the Georgia Dome, site of the SEC Championship game between Alabama and Florida.

I am not an officially licensed blogger, so I'll just have to talk with you in the comments section.

Alabama won, 32-13.

So how does Boom's defense do against Saban's offense?

I wouldn't go that far Steve. They seem to dial it up when they need to. I recall two games against us when we were a far superior team. Ofcourse that was a different time with different coaches, but ...

Bama will curbstomp Texas

10:42 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Ndamukong Suh and CJ Spiller are the nations top two players IMO

10:44 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

superior according to the pollsters at the time I mean

10:44 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Texas and TCU should have a play in game

10:46 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

FSJ - sorry, but McClain isn't the best defensive player, either. Suh is Suhperb.

10:47 PM

Im hearing Turner Gill to Kansas, I hope this is true, id like to see what he can do at a big time school

10:48 PM

Bama's athletes are bigger, faster and meaner than Tejas.

The coaching is equal at best. the Bama Jimmies and Joes are better. Boom is good against the spread, not as good against a pro style.

If Texas can't run the ball....they are in T-R-O-U-B-L-E.....

10:49 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

JayG... I implore you to vote Ndamukong Suh #1 on your Heisman ballot.... the MAN deserves it. He's the best player in college football, regardless of position.

10:49 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

After that game, I adjust my Heisman ballot


1) Ndamukong Suh
2) Toby Gerhardt
3) Case Keenum

10:50 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Gerhardt is big and good, but ain't fast/quick enough to do well in the SEC. he can truck some of those Pac 10 players ..The SEC ..not so much.

10:51 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Gerhardt didnt get enough media coverage this year, playing out west kept him off primetime TV...sucks for him

10:53 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

so, I assume all the AU Hotties are scouting our likely Outback Bowl opponent on ESPN2? Most of the Hawaii's players look so tiny against UW.

10:56 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Gerhardt has zero jump/cut ability. He can truck those noodle-armed boyz in the Pac 10. He would be a good SEC runner, but not great.

10:56 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

My Heisman ballot:

Realistic-
1) Ingram
2) Spiller
3) McCoy

Should be:
1) McClain
2) Suh
3) Ingram

10:59 PM

Hawaii has a long growing season, why would they have a rug for turf?

Gnite all. I'll record the Wisconsin game and watch later.

If Longhorns weren't castrated by definition, UAT would have done it for 'em.

11:04 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

This does look better for the SEC though, instead of UF winning 3 national titles BAMA will win and it will be 4 in a row by 3 different teams, very nice

11:13 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

It probably worked better with JJ's offense.

11:13 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

jhag - there is absolutely nothing nice about the thought of UA-T winning a mythical national championship. NOTHING. I'd rather the SEC be the weakest conference on earth.

I dont live around any Bammers so I could see how the rest of you hate them more then me...trust me i hate them but not like you folks id say

11:22 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I'm in the same boat Jhag, don't have the supreme hate that some of these guys do. With that said I will be pulling for the Longhorns all the way.

Hook 'em Horns

They won't win, but Hook 'em Horns anyway.

Love the honesty.

Bama will win the NC. Great to be back on top of the SEC. Hope we stay there for many years.

Hopefully we can have this type of effort against Texas

11:42 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Yeah Mark? Well I hope Saban decides to rebuild UVA or Kansas or Notre Dame. Unfortunately that's not going to happen

11:49 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Hey everyone, I was looking at the bowl projections on cbssportsline and with their projections they also have the tie in for the game like for the Capital ONe bowl its SEC#2 vs Big 10 #2. Are those just guides, or do they have to pick that group?

11:59 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

guys lets admit it Saban is the best coach in college fooseball

12:03 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

He's doin pretty good right now jhag, I will admit that

12:04 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Mytommyd, that means the capital bowl gets the 2nd (or this year 3rd) pick of SEC team, they can choose any bowl eligible team.

12:07 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Ok Wake. I ask because they have (as their projection mind you) Clemson playing UK in the Music City Bowl. It says they take an SEC and the ACC 5/6/7. At worst Clemson is a 3 I would think. Not that it matters, but it just seemed like that would be an exact pick when they listed the positioning of the team rather than just the conference affiliation. It's late now and I'm wondering if I'm making any sense.

12:12 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I wonder if you are looking at the order the bowls pick in.

12:19 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Yeah, I don't know about that Steve, and that certainly would have a lot to do with it too.

12:21 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

The Houston QB through the ball 75 times against ECU. That has to be some kind of record.

12:22 AM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Did any see the Frsno St. OL make the catch off the deflection and score to win the game?
Incredible!

12:25 AM  
Blogger jhag said...

I saw that, the dude weighed 360

12:27 AM  
Blogger Sean said...

Lots of wild finishes today...save the one game.

12:27 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

By the way, it was a very wild day with pickem. Every underdog beat the spread except Clempson.

12:27 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I will never fail to be amazed that ESPN actually has a bowl selection show. I think it lasts about 2 hours. How in the world do you take 2 hours to go, here, here is the list.

12:32 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I thought Hawaii just got the crap beat out of them in bowl games, not conference championship games. Well, they got a neat place to live, anyways.

12:39 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Conference Championship game?


FSJ, it appears you're being a homer with the Heisman thing. I can't tell, but that's what it looks like.

Mark, it's anoying to tout bama's greatness on an Auburn board. Discuss the game, fine.

7:22 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Some football seasons there isn't just one MOST Outstanding Player. I would be OK if they just didn't give a Heisman that year and this seems to be one of those years.

They don't give out Nobel Prizes if no one is worthy in a particular catagory. ...Well, normally they don't.

8:09 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Hoopie - I take it you mean this year to be an exception to that rule?

8:34 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

If so, agreed.

8:34 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Well out of the big three only Ingram stepped up yesterday.

8:39 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Since when was Heisman is based on one game?

8:47 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Well Peter the same thing can be said for eliminating him based on his Auburn performance.

8:53 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

It takes 13 games to win it, 1 to lose it. :-)

8:55 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Welll you know PF, Ingram does lead the nation in yardage. Wait, no he doesn't. Well he leads the nation in rushing touchdowns. Wait he doesn't have that either. Average per game? Ummm no. He has all that in the SEC? Yeah, no. Wait, he does all that on a team named Alabama. Ok that he's got.

8:56 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

However on the big stage yesterday, with everyone watching, Ingram had the better day of the three.

8:57 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Exactly tommy..

Biggest stage of the year and he spanked the Gators.

8:58 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

In the age of youTube, twitter, and all that other crap, you'd think playing on national tv in primetime wouldn't be a requirement for winning the award. Guess not.

8:59 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

And in a second check, Ingram does lead the SEC in rushing yards. However the second place guy is behind 151 yards and did that in two fewer games.

9:00 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Heisman voters only watch ESPN PF. And perception plays a HUGE part of it.

9:01 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

PF,

Since forever depending on the situation.

It shouldn't be based on one game, but you know how these things seem to go. The voters wait until they see a breakout performance in a big game and with it being so close at the end of the year that last game will be something that could cause some voters to jump on Ingram.

9:01 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

It is nice to not here how Tebow is the savior of the world today.

9:07 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Maybe one of you can answer this for me... I'm no Auburn historian so forgive me..

Did Bo have the most rushing yards in the country when he won the Heisman?

What about number of touchdowns? Did he have the most?

What about average per game?

Did he have a bad game that year?

9:08 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

FSJ,As I recall when Bo won the Heisman, he was the greatest at everything. And no one was even close

9:12 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I was just wondering since it was the closest Heisman vote ever (at the time) with Chuck Long coming in second.

9:13 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Bo had two bad games his senior year vs UT and vs Florida.

9:14 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Actually I'm not sure how you could find out that info. But then again who else was doing what he did that year? Who was Alabama's RB that year?

And from Wiki, the answer is yes he did:
In 1985, Jackson rushed for 1,786 yards, which was the second best single-season performance in SEC history. That year, he averaged 6.4 yards per rush, which at the time was the best single-season average in SEC history

9:15 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Not that Bo wasn't very deserving of course.

Just curious since that seems to be the knock against Ingram...he doesn't lead the nation in this category or that category.

9:15 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

tommy,

Humphrey and Jelks were the two primary RB's at UA that year.

Jelks had a big game in the Iron Bowl.

9:15 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I'm guessing the vote was only close because Auburn was 8-3 heading into the bowl game when the vote was done after being # 1 early in the season.

I think Iowa was 10-1.

9:16 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

RK...

I actually remembered after I posted that he had a down game against UT.

Didn't recall UF.

9:16 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Ahhhhh that's why I don't remember who they were. Repressed memories. I hate bama.

9:17 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Bo got injured early in the Florida game in 1985.

The UT and UF games of 85 were the only games where he didn't get at least 100 yards.

9:19 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

No doubt Bo is the best college RB i can recall ever seeing in person...

I'm just pointing out that stats aren't necessarily everything.

9:20 AM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Never question the best running back ever!

FSJ, I don't think Ingram is the best running back on your team. I think if Richardson had played as many downs as Ingram, he would have exceeded Ingram's numbers. Also, I don't believe he had a hip pointer. He had hurt feelings!

Your team was hitting on all cylinders yesterday. Florida looked terrible. Sad to say, Texas did too. 2010 might be a rough year for us Auburn fans to endure, but we will. Better days are ahead for us.

9:23 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Oh FSJ you and both know if stats were everything, there would be a LOT of different Heisman winners. Which is the luxury the voters have because they can change their mind year to year about whether the award is for a career (which they say they don't do but we know they do) or just a season, even though that season may not be as great as others may have that year. Which is why everyone debates it. You can't debate the Doak Walker award, because you look at the numbers and go, ok this guy was the best running back.

9:27 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I wonder what makes the Heisman more prestigious than the Walter Camp Award?

9:29 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

The media...I guess.

When's the last time a Heisman winner won the NC?

The USC QB in 2004 maybe?

I think the Heisman has become a joke. Growing up I couldn't wait to watch the presentation. Now I could really care less. I wouldn't doubt that there is a lot of money that changes hands while buying votes.

9:41 AM  
Blogger chip chip said...

hates...i mean hats off to bammer for letting all the air out of the tebow balloon. as much as it sucks bammer won, it was nice to see something finally not go uf's way. the superior team won going away.
tebow will always be remembered as human.

what was the biggest play of the evening for bammer you ask? it was the officials putting one second back on the clock in the least 12 champ game and allow tx to sneak in long field goal to win it. two feet to the left and bammer is facing a much stiffer challenge from tcu in the championship game. tx looks to be pretty one dimensional and fading a little.

now that the season is done, how do we all feel about chiz? i'm relatively pleased with his first season, but with a few less defensive injuries, i'm convinced AU wins 3 more games (uk, uga, bammer). also look at some of the folks we passed over to get chiz. patterson and kelly were both mentioned for the AU job. they are one AU play against bammer and a questionable call and long fg for tx away from playing each other with undefeated teams in the ncg. abc and the bcs would have been in full blown meltdown mode if the ncg had been tcu v cincy. so close....

9:42 AM  
Blogger Mullets=Bammers said...

I am very pleased with Chiz. I think he is a great man and will go down as a great coach. He came in under a tough situation. It will take time but he is cleaning up any/all diciplinary problems. He seems to get the most out of his players. He/staff are recruiting like no other has at Auburn. I think the future is very very bright. War Eagle.

9:46 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Play of the day yesterday was either very early when Demps dropping an easy swing pass that he could have taken a long way early in the game or Hernandez dropping what would have been a TD to put Florida ahead in the 1st half. Both of those could have changed the momentum of that game.

I'm happy with Chiz right now. We'll have to wait and see what happens once he has his own players and some depth.

9:49 AM  
Blogger Anna Kathryn said...

I wanted Texas to lose that game too, but there was clearly one second left on the clock when the ball hit the ground out of bounds.

9:50 AM  
Blogger Mullets=Bammers said...

Someone help please. Everytime I refresh the page I get a message asking if I only want to display the webpage content that was delivered securely. How can I turn this off. Also I was wondering is JT could set up the page to automatically refresh.

9:50 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

You all should be happy with Chizik.. He and his staff did a great job this season. He turned a 5-7 caliber team in to a 7-5 team, IMO.

I know they faded down the stretch record wise, but they will learn from that.

Totally OT...anybody just see the shot that Weis took at Pete Carrol on his way out the door? Insinuated he was having an affair with a grad student.

9:55 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I think the Heisman winner should be the difference maker for his team. Bo was definitely that for Auburn and Tebow has definitely been that for Florida. Ingram has been solid but I don't think he's been the difference maker.

I'm pleased with the staff Chiz has put together and I think there is great promise for the future. He gets a B+ for the year if recruiting comes in as good as it looks currently.

10:00 AM

Enjoyed your article in today's online edition Jay G...

10:00 AM  
Blogger Mullets=Bammers said...

yeah I just saw that FSJ. What a sore loser. It's probably true but is that the time to bring it out. Makes him look like more of an idiot.

10:00 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I think the Bama game is proof that the primary problem with this team was depth. Our first string could hang with anyone but there was no one to back them up.

They came out of the box hot to start the year and started to get tired and beat up around the UT game. With no chance to recover and no one to give them a break, they struggled through the UGA game.

With a week to rest up, they stuck it to Bama and held them for 3 quarters. A little more depth on defense and they would have likely held on that last drive.

With a month to recover, we should see a team more like the one that rattled off 5 wins to start the season in the bowl game.

10:12 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Chip Chip - don't forget that 5-7 Turner Gill was also in that hunt

10:18 AM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

I think Chizik did a great job this year. If the recruiting holds up brighter days are ahead for Auburn football.
Bama played the strongest opponent and won going away and was by far the best team playing yesterday. They will more than likekly beat Texas but strange things happen in college football.

10:26 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Maybe I'm just biased but what I see in Ingram is a very good back that plays behind a great offensive line in an offense that is perfect for his running style. What he isn't is a great running back in my opinion. I haven't seen him play like AP played at Oklahoma, or Mcfadden at Arkansas. I think he has been a very good runningback, but not a great one.

My other beef is I think you take him off that team, and they are still undefeated. There are several good backs on that offense that I think would have stepped up and done very well. Upchurch's yard per carry is actually higher than Ingram's isn't it? But if you took McCoy off of Texas what would happen?

With all that said McCoy blew it last night, the award is probably his, but I just don't see heisman in him. Like I said maybe I'm biased.

10:27 AM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

Jay G. enjoyed your article it was well done and Bama was by far the best team that played yesterday.
Now let's move on to important things Like Go Big Blue beat the Badgers. War Eagle!!... things are looking up on the loveliest village on the plains.
