Things that make you go hmmm... We scored more on them than the No. 1 team in the country, BUT our offense did not score a point.

Defense showed up at first, till they realized YET AGAIN that the offense was going to give them zero support.  

I see all these threads calling for CTR's head on a platter but CGM apparently gets a bye on the "inexperience" card.

Plus eleventy billion for special teams, though...that was the high point of the day.

The game went pretty much as I expected, and pretty much the same as our other blow-out losses.  We make a mistake or turnover and it's over just that quick. We were in the game until the pick-6 and then it was over.  Not blaming Clint, just saying.  It's frustrating that only a few short months ago we were at the pinnacle and today feels pretty low.  All we can do is build for the future.

Our head coach has some work to do; there was little to no improvement on offense and defense all season.  In hindsight, Malzahn should have just taken KF and gotten a season's experience out of him.

As I stated in the game thread I deactivated my Facebook account. It actually felt pretty good.  We have work to do. I hope we can win the bowl game.

Can't say I'm surprised by the score. I am surprised at how ineffective the offense was. It seems like the 2nd half of the Clemson game our "O" vanished from the face of the earth. The defense had some decent stops tonight, but the O did them absolutely no favors. If CGM leaves for NC, I can't say that I'll be too terribly sad. It seems like his offensive scheming has become it's own worst enemy and rather predictable. I would have loved to see some hard hitting running instead of all the finesse dancing around.  

Good news is, I'm still an Auburn Tiger and not a turd!

WDE!!!!! It's great to be an Auburn Tiger!

I'm still having some trouble understanding why a 1,000 yard running back only touches the ball 13 times in the biggest game of the year.  Can someone offer to shed some light on this for me since I just can't seem to wrap my head around it?

Wondering.... "What If" we had signed Russell Wilson.... would we still have a 7-5 record?  I can't help but think he would've made a difference in talent and leadership for this inexperienced team.  We will get better.  Not sure what our future is right now at QB....
