MSU women def. Auburn, 73-58

Hey everyone. Hope your Sunday is going well.

I will be LIVE BLOGGING the women's game (Auburn vs. MSU) beginning around 2 p.m. This will be a Cover It Live-type situation.

Most of you are not into women's hoops and that's fine, too.

I'll be available to talk about a somewhat wide variety of topics, though I will be watching the women's game. Come soak it all in. This is a dress rehearsal for A New Era In HABOTN Game Coverage.

Love,
jgt

By the way, anyone who watched the Texas Tech game last night get tired of the announcers campaigning for Ruffin McNeil to get the HC job based off of one game?

That's how WVU ended up with Stewart.

It's crazy to give someone a job based on one game.

Blogger astatguy said...

If TTech doesn't hire Ruffin they'll have to face the black coach thing, only not just for not choosing one, but passing over one. He seems like a smart man who handles pressure well. Plus, he's cheap and, according to Leach, that's important to them. I think they'll hire him.

Jay G just said Nell Fortner and Aubie arm wrassled during a timeout. The match was interrupted when Cliff Ellis ran in and hit Aubie in the back of the head with a folding chair. Aubie wins by disqualification, but Nell maintains the belt.

Were you able to watch the game? I know that might not have been the preferred activity for your missus on her first married day.

The ladies hung with them pretty well until the middle of the second half. I was reading and article and came back and suddenly they were beaten down pretty bad.

4:26 PM

Should have used that modified wedding ceremony that said "Do you take this man and Auburn football to be your....".

4:27 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

There was a big screen at the brunch. I listened to the the second half in the car. I made her high five me every time we won.


I think the words "I am my beloved's, and my beloved and his love of Auburn football are mine" were uttered. I can't verify it, though, because I don't remember anything from the ceremony but trying to not get Tebomotional.

Okay,off I go. I'll check back in Wednesday.

4:35 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

I have dwelled on it, thought about it, debated it with myself, and come to a conclusion. Yesterday was the all time "most clutch" performance I have ever seen from an Auburn team, at least in the last 30 years. More clutch than Bo over the top. More clutch than Jason driving us down the field to beat LSU. EVERY Auburn team I can think of would have succumb to the odds, and dude would have run it in on the fake field goal. But not these boys. They just absolutely WOULD NOT QUIT.

I'm excited about what this D can do next year. Once we get loaded up with some fresh legs, we are going to be pretty tough; because we already have some boys out there who are "MANS".

5:03 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

Yes, more clutch than that one too.

5:05 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Phred, I do think the D will be tough next season. In thinking about it, I think you are right. What they did was much more impressive, even than the drive against LSU. Frankly, I don't know how we stopped them. How could Northwestern have worn our defense down more? I have a lot of respect for all of those players. They are definitely men.

5:08 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Classic win.

5:25 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

digger - yes they were Big 12 refs

SteveFC - I think NW coach made a tactical error when he took the usual route of defense first in OT. Our defense had been on the field the last few minutes of the game and would have had to be right back out there for OT. But following standard strategy, NW gave our defense a breather.

5:29 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

we watched the game earlier this afternoon and I was AH MAZED at the effort of Craig Stevens on that sack non-fumble that won the game the first time in OT. It was superhuman.

5:32 PM  
Blogger IV said...

THT,

How you doing after the car crash? Do you have coverage for foot races on your auto insurance?

5:32 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

THT, you are probably right. I have also been thinking about the decision to fake the punt. I think it was a good one only because the NW kicker got injured. If he isn't injured, why not just keep pushing it to additional OT's. Byrum probably deserves some credit here, because the NW coach had to be thinking there is no way he is going to get in a kicking dual with Byrum against whoever their backup was.

If it weren't for the injured kicker, if I were the Northwestern coach I would have happily pushed for additional overtimes. I don't know how long our defense could have held. Apparently Washington had to be carried from the field at the end of the game, I am assuming because of cramps.

5:38 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

By the way, I really admired the Northwestern team and the way they played. They had nothing in terms of a running game and still gave us all we could handle. That team was very well coached.

5:39 PM

Missed the ballgame. Since I have to go back to work tomorrow, I had to get the Christmas tree down. The holiday is officially over. I had the football game on and kept hearing Will Herring's name mentioned as well as Sen Marks getting his first NFL sack.

Thoughts ...by tommyd

It's MUCH easier not to get violent and lose control at an Auburn game when you're actually at the game surrounded by other Auburn fans you can vent with.

It was a GREAT pleasure to finally meet our fearless leader and a good many of the hotties that were able to make it to Tampa and survive another WV like weather game. Y'all are awesome.

IV it was an honor sir. AU365 it was a great time!

Our team is going to be just fine. I'm convinced now more than ever that Gene Chizik knows exactly how to handle the reins of a major conference football team, and will be able to get these kids in position to succeed, if they're willing to do what it takes.

Blogger LuvAU41 said...

Good article, Tar Heel.

I think the incidental facemask penalty needs to be reinstated.

It is beyond my feeble mind how for so many games this season Auburn racked up the penalty yards, while the opposing team had very few. Is Auburn really that undisciplined?

Also, when we watched the game again yesterday, on the game-tieing (sp??) TD, a Northwestern receiver clearly false started and it wasn't called. We rewound it twice just to be sure.

Interesting observations from PMarsh. I found it hard to believe that as maligned as their O-Line was pregame that they kept our D-Line at bay and there were few, if any, holding calls.

Also, the replay official made it apparent early he was not the overturning type. For better or worse.

Also, I'm really beginning to doubt Malzahn's ability to call a game. He has some moments where the flow is good and the right play for the situation is called and then we go into a 5 drive funk where fart around doing stupid stuff.

It was a cold, cold drive to Bammerham this morning.

The good news is that it is a short (hopefully championship) week for me!

Have a great day!

Sir Sean ...

I didn't care for the 2nd Kodi pass play, nor putting him in the 'Cat at the goal line on 2nd down before the Byrum FG. Other than that, we did roll up 400 plus yards and we didn't have the ball that much. We're still short on playmakers on offense. We didn't get people open other than Darvin. That's got to change.

As for the pass rush, most of the game, we rushed 4, so they had 5 blocking 4. Our problem all season was LBs in coverage. When you're playing D. Hood and T. Bell (who will be a good player one day) plus the suspects at LB, you'll get picked apart.

Go back at watch it, most of the picks came when we sent 5 or more to pass rush.

9:22 AM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

Jet, agree with you on Hood and LB's in coverage. I thought the LBs did ok and thought T. Bell might have earned himself the NB role next year.

I think the idea of Kodi as an offensive weapon needs to be reevaluated.

Is there anywhere I can find the game online?

I agree with PMarshall after watching the replay last night. It is hard to imagine that one team has that many penalties and the other team has so few. I thought the face mask was a bad call at the game, it was almost right in front of us and it looked like a bad call in real time. I really don't know what the coaches or players can do about the calls when in so many cases they shouldn't even be a call.

It irritated me on the last kickoff that Washington was clearly no longer moving forward and allowed him to be stood up and hacked for a good 3-4 seconds before falling down.

Blogger wtc said...

Jet-I agree with your conclusions. I think Jay's posting the other day about Gus having to adjust his offense due to the lack of defense was pretty good.
My problem though is the same as Sean though. How does Au get up by 14 early the past 3 games and let the other team tie it up. It seems to me, we run a lot of motion early, score on the confusion of the defense, then it is like someone says 'Well that's all we got' and we go in a shell. AU stops running the motion stuff and the opponents defense stars to play normal schemes to stop anything we do. If it weren't for Adams, this offense would have died several deaths this year. AU had alot of big plays to him that bailed them out of trouble throughout the year.

9:53 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Anyone remember the number of penalties UK had in the game at JH? I think they had 0.

Did AU have more penalties in the game than any opponent we played?

9:55 AM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

Too many penalties. I understand it is year one and we have some talent deficiencies but sometimes the playcalling is way too cute and why the heck do we not run more in short yardage situations on 3rd down?!

mytommy it was a delight to meet you last Friday. With the seating arrangement we didn't get much time to talk maybe next time the opportunity will give us more time.

Digger, it was great meeting you, sir. And yes perhaps at the next grand HABOTN function, we'll get a chance to meet a good bit more.

Thanks again THT for getting all that organized.

Sean,

I've been saying the same thing. I like the offense, but sometimes the play calling drives me crazy. Mainly with the use of the KodiCat, it seems to kill momentum and nothing creative seems to come out of it. (However, any time Kodi puts the ball in the air we are tempting fate.)

We are creative early in the game with a lot of motion, then after the scripted part of the game is over we tend to go into a shell.

Overall we put up good offensive numbers, but I think the play calling could be better as well.

11 straight days off from work, it was no fun coming in today.

What was interesting at the bowl game, whenever they did the Wildcat with Kodi, you could hear the "uh-oh" and the prediction of the inside run. I do believe if we simple fans can figure that, the opposition probably has too. I really wish he would have gotten his passing skills honed to a greater degree.

10:31 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

If CM is the starting QB 9let's not get into a starting QB discussion though) I think the wildcat goes away. He is big and fast enough to run the ball or throw it to keep the defense guessing which he will do. IMO.

10:33 AM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

The Wildcat is a great tool to use when you actually have the right people running it. Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown, Felix Jones and RunDMC. Kodi Burns does not have the ability to do what those guys do.

up from my nap...

Sean - we proved early on that we are almost incapable of gaining a yard on the ground in those short yardage situations. That has been, by far, the most disappointing aspect of our offense in each of the past 2 years.

BTW - where were you at the game?

mytommyd, IV, digger, AUFan - y'all made the Outback Bowl an absolutely FANTASTIC memory for the THT crew. Thanks!!!!!!!!

2.0 (proving she is 2.0) is making me go to the ortho clinic today. I set up an appt with a shoulder specialist for Friday, but she thinks I need to be seen sooner than that. I think she's right. Y'all have a great afternoon!

HOOK 'EM HORNS!!!

Blogger Wade said...

If it were my decision, next season the only time Kodi would touch the football is as a receiver. The wildcat with him at QB in the middle of the field makes me crazy. Kodi has my respect but he is not a strong runner and a total fail as a passer. Put him in the slot and use that 4.5 speed in a match up with linebacker, but that's it. IMO

10:45 AM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

THT, I was there, we came up, me and another guy, but the women got lost and of course when they came up and saw the rain, I was forced to move up into the empty seats. So we ended up a few rows back.

10:47 AM  
Blogger Jet the Dancin' Gopher said...

I actually thought the two balls Kodi threw Friday were the best two he's thrown this year. Didn't like the play call afer the first pick, but two things stand out:

Both defenders made incredible plays to make the pick.

He didn't get much help from the receiver on either throw.

Rich Brooks changes certainty from 80 percent he's gone to 100 percent he's gone.

10:48 AM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

That may be Jet, but I recall watching, on the first one, the Safety was sitting on it. The second pick was a great play by the DB.

Probably the second best coach in UK football history. I'm not a Kentucky football historian but I think he'd have to be up there based on their history.

It is very interesting to me that we are already talking about 2010. That tells me everyone is excited from what happened with this team and are looking forward to much progress this spring and fall. I think that is a good assessment.

Rich Brooks is the best coach Ky has ever had. The second best moved on to Texas A&M and then on to other endevors.

I think that the biggest improvement will be in the LB and DB positions. That will help to open up the defense more, giving Roof better choices on sets to call. I also think as the depth on D improves, it will help Gus get more of his O in the game. I can't wait. I wished we were teeing it up this afternoon.

Today is my first chance at HABOTN posting since leaving for Tampa. I'm sure every possible comment has already been made about the game. However, I was wondering if anyone besides me waited to cheer on the 3rd time we won the game until the refs ran off the field and into the tunnel.

Btw, nice to meet the Hotties in Section 232. It was a brief meeting, as I arrived just as the placard parade was starting, but still nice to shake the hands of some fellow Hotties and to put faces with names.
