We have one more win. Headed to the bbva compass bowl. You cannot continually compete with an awful defense. Seniors need to accept responsibility for this one. So disappointed

Well Ellis had the offense cover his ineptness with enough points again, just didn't count on that blocked FG TD.

Sorry I doubted you bud. You were right all along. Defense is lost

Both the offense and the defense are responsible for this loss. It's unfair to put all the blame on the defense.

We scored 38 points and lost. And the offense is responsible how.......?

.......did you watch the end of the game?....that's the offense playing their part in the loss....

And what happens if the defense doesn't give up 35?

The SAME thing that happens if the offense doesn't fumble away the game....we win. It's on both. "If, if, if." Look, if grandma had balls, we'd call her grandpa.

So you're saying if the defense doesnt give up 35 it's the same as if ee fumble to score 40 something?

No, I'm saying what I just said. You live in a fairy tale world of ifs. I'd prefer to focus on what actually happened here in reality - the defense played a huge part in the loss to state the clear obvious. AND the offense played a huge part in the loss with 2 key fumbles what would have won the game for us. Both are responsible, and if you can't see that, I have no interest in trying to persuade someone who's not open to reason.

Fairy tale world? I dont think so. IMO a fairy tale world is giving up 35 offensive poinnts and expect to win. Yes Nick and Reese fumbled it away at the.end, but it should have never reached that point. We have a knack of making mediocre QBs look like world beaters

It's on the team. As we win and lose as auburn. However the defense is garbage and aren't worth their coaches jobs or scholarships. Abrasive m anyone's mms anytime your score 30+ you should win. Exorbitant when it's a horrible opponent

I don't want excuses. MSU is getting it done with less stellar recruits. We have enough talent to have a good defense.

This is a true statement.

Let the meltdown begin! On your mark...get set....GO!

Just a question - but WHEN would a meltdown be acceptable? Just curious...please help those of us who expect far more from the #3 team in the nation besides that atrocity of execution at the end on offense, horrific defense, and below average special teams? Help me out here....

You're providing a good example of it right now. I'm not looking for an argument.

If you are not looking for an argument, then you are just a little bi-otch. What kind if statement is that. Go someplace else if you are gong to be an instigator.

I stated I wasn't looking for an argument. Chill man and read. He came for me and I'm acting like a bi-otch. Ok. Wow. Meltdown is epic tonight.

You made the statement you were not looking for an argument AFTER you make a petty post enticing everyone. Think first. Don't be a douche.

Dude anyone blaMing the offense is an idiot. 38 points should win a game. I'd eills coaches worth a Damn we win the game. Id the refs call the game correct we win the game. Period

Finally....someone with common sense. We bailed the D out against USCe so I guess we were suppose to the same today. This loss is ALL on EJ, the coaches on defense and players on defense.

New to the board? I've pointed out ole Ellis hideous gameplans and apparent odd points of emphasis in 6 of our games this season and been hammered every time. Usually with the "he's been doing this a long time" reasoning that kept Ted Kennedy propped up past his prime too.

Everyone needs to go back to the 1st page of this thread and look at the offensive stats. The O did its job. Plain and simple.

Not trying to be negative. Trying to look at being 7-2. But we should be 9-0. We look at how week we've played and. We could be 5-4. That's not acceptable at auburn. Assess what the week link is and fix it. I know it won't be this year but I'd certain people have a job after this year. Someone won't have one next

Why is it not a false start on Marshall when Dismukes snapped the ball. he was moving forward on the snap

Should have been an illegal motion call...

Defense would've declined the penalty. So, it wouldn't have changed the outcome. No getting around it, we flubbed that up.

So many missed tackles. Defense seems to be getting worse each week. I have to wonder if this team is mentally exhausted after so many tough opponents in succession.

The offense has not been clicking on all cylinders either. The whole team seems exhausted. This schedule was just too brutal.

Coates has been a beast, so has Marshall and CAP... Duke was a beast until the injury tonight. The offense has more than carried its weight.

No one is defending the defense. They have played like absolute garbage for 4 games. But that doesn't mean that the offense doesn't have a hand in not scoring on two short fields. That's how they are responsible. Are they MORE responsible? No! But I don't care how many points you score - 3 turnovers - especially those last two are completely indefensible and 100% cost us the game.

And if you're the kind of person to argue against that fact, you deserve to be shouted down and escorted from the premises.

Coats has not been a beast . he drops more than he catches. Losing duke sucks but were not a passing team. Cap ran good. But that means zero. The season is over unless all hell breaks loose. If u enjoy going to the banana bowl that's fine. But anything less than the playoffs sux ass.

CAP had that fumble. It was blatantly clear

We played bad, really REALLY bad. That said, there is no good that comes from a meltdown. When a loss comes, and they're inevitable, a team benefits most from support not beration or vitriol. It sucks to lose, but it sucks more for those players and coaches that are far more invested in the team than any of us.

After games like these I think of Edmond Dant├Ęs toast from The Count of Monte Cristo

Life is a storm my young friend, you will bask in the sunlight one moment be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into the storm as you shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst for I will do mine. Then the Fates will know you as we know you as Albert Mondego, the man.

or more appropriately

I'm going to go kiss my wife, hug my kids and enjoy the time with them.

War Eagle, everyone.

tigersauburn217, you are, without a doubt, one of the biggest fools on this board. I have ignored you -- officially -- for years. Tonight, you called out anyone to bet you anything. I proposed a bet you didn't take. You still don't know what it was. And yet, after we lost tonight (I say 'we' out of politeness), you said you'd take the 'win'.

I bet that if we won, you'd stay off the game thread. I bet that if we lost, I'd stay off the game thread.

You failed to take me up on that bet.

But you still think you won. You think you won when we lost. Good for you.

I'm off the game thread for the remainder of this season. Not because you won, 217. But because I have no desire to interact with quitters like you.
