The goal line stand was huge for more than just this game. The defense knows they can get after a team, just have to do it for 60 minutes.

Hopefully we can improve as much between this game and Clemson as we did between Utah St. and now.  This game I liked what the O-line did but wasn't as impressed with Trotter.  Mind you, I'm not complaining about him either but I think as he learns to disguise what he's doing, the offense is going to improve quite a bit.   Special teams were amazing.  It seemed like the secondary and pass rush improved.  I'm not sure how they are going to address the rushing defense but look forward to seeing!

Great game and finish by defense on last play; but one of these days I would really like to see the offense take control of the game when we have a lead in the 4th quarter...

LSU is probably going to beat Miss St pretty bad.  MSU is banged up far more than they expected to be after this game, and they have only 4 days to prepare.  They put everything they had into trying to beat Auburn...and fell short.  They'll be 0-2 in the SEC next Fri morning.

Agree completely. That MSU QB is a tough dude. He took a real beating today.

Had our defense done as well at alignments and communication against Utah State as we did today, we would have won comfortably. MSU is a much better team than USU.  Defense was gassed at the end but only gave up 10 pts after halftime.  I saw improvement even if the stats aren't pretty.

Yeah he is.  Had Miss St played LSU today and not next The they'd have a much better chance of winning.  But right now they're beat up.  And I doubt they can get their act back to gether in 4 days.

Auburn just loves to hand out stress.

We looked much better defensively today.  Run game looked better also.

There's some really good potential there.

Seriously, what are the odds that Relf goes down without crossing the goalline.  There appreared to be NO WAY that Ryan Smith could have kept him from scoring.  That was a spectacular finish.  These guys are getting great lessons that will pay huge dividends down the road.

A question on the Ballard jump that was spotted on the 1 yard line.

I thought the rule was that he had to have the ball inside the pylon but Andre Ware said otherwise, anyone know for sure what the rule is?

Great game, great effort.  We have a lot to work to improve but we also have a lot to build off of.  This team has a high ceiling if they continue to mature and gel together.  O-line looked much better, the d-line looked more aggressive.  The secondary played better.  We still need better LB play but Bull did make a difference.  If we can learn to stop the damn option...

Rule changed this year.  The plane of the goal does not extend beyond the pylon anymore. He would have to get the ball directly over or inside the pylon as he goes by for it to count.
