Alabama Game Report Card

Recommended Posts

I understand why Daboll didn’t run the RBs too much even tho the statistics dictate that would’ve been a smart thing. Hurts running the ball has been their bread and butter and I know they do that to calm his passing down/open the play action up. Even though a lot of Bama fans will say why why why, you have to credit Auburn for not allowing the long Hurts run play often and keeping him mentally erratic. Hurts was at risk of throwing several picks (I wish our DBs could catch) so the notion wasn’t the worst. I know Stidham said previously a couple good hits got his mind going in that Miss St game.

They got another shot and still screwed it up. Bottom line,

Alabama  14 

Auburn    26

As a wise, old Greek philosopher, I believe it was Aristotle once said, 

Hey bama, we just beat the hell out of you.

Ramma-Jamma, yella-hammer

Go to hell Alabama

Or, it was something like that

Auburn came into the game, 4-12 against No. 1 ranked teams since 1951, and Gus Malzahn is now 3-4 against No. 1 ranked teams. The Alabama following will tell you the Crimson Tide were beat-up coming into the game but won't acknowledge their last two Iron Bowl victories came against Auburn teams without a healthy starting quarterback and running back. Enjoy and savor the victory Auburn fans as you witnessed one of the most significant sights in football. The win tonight confirmed how much this Auburn squad has improved as the season progressed. Auburn is a team that never quit despite the early losses to Clemson and LSU. Throughout all the turmoil, Coach Gus Malzahn assured the fan base this team would continue to improve and would be much better than their record reflected. Rather than allowing the media to distract his team with discussions of Malzahn possibly leaving the program, the Auburn coaching staff had the team prepared to take on Nick Saban's juggernaut from Tuscaloosa.
 

It was another "team" effort required to take down Alabama's loaded roster and reputation of being one of the most elite programs in the history of college football. Auburn's players would not allow the magnitude of the game to become too much to overcome adversity during the contest. Every time Alabama made a play to work themselves back into the game, Auburn quickly responded in all three phases of the game. It was not perfect execution tonight on the part of the young men clad in blue, but an ideal attitude to make the plays when they were needed the most. Despite being the underdogs coming into the game, Auburn played like the favored team, showing composure and confidence throughout the game. Minus the three plays of 30-yards or more allowed against Alabama, the Auburn defense held the Crimson Tide to 245-yards on their remaining 58 snaps.
 

The Auburn offense that has been so reliant upon the big play this season could not manage a single play of 30-yards or more. What we witnessed was exceptional play-calling on the part of Chip Lindsey, who composed three long touchdown drives against an Alabama defense that entered the game as the No. 1 ranked defense and the No. 1 scoring defense. Lindsey orchestrated the ability to counter the numerous blitz packages Alabama has traditionally demolished their opponents with in the past. The Auburn offense never flinched during the game, and the final touchdown drive was the death nail for Alabama as Malzahn did not choose to hold onto a one-score lead. With the game tied at 7-7, Auburn would score four consecutive times on 33 snaps for 228-yards.


Auburn has so much more to play for but the closure of the regular season should not be forgotten or overlooked. If this season had taken place prior to 1992, Auburn would be outright conference champions tonight. Regardless of whether or not Kerryon Johnson will be available for the conference championship, it won't change how this team rallied around one another to showcase what might be the best team in the country when healthy. Gus Malzahn and his staff have built a strong football team through recruiting and player development. The players are committed to their coaching staff, and the staff has placed their personnel in a position to be successful. Other than wins and losses, what more can be expected from Coach Malzahn and his staff? As for now, the only obstacle facing the 2017 Auburn Tigers are health issues.              


War Eagle!

Pretty sure it was declined.

Did it have to be declined if there is a 10-second runoff? Also, it was a loss of down penalty.  I'd love for the stats to have to be amended...

Despite the passing grade on special teams, I think Fountain needs to go. If not for Carlson, our ST would have been a dumpster fire this year.

EDIT: Horton. Not Fountain.

How's about we just give ST to someone else and keep Horton just the same? He does pretty well with RB's...jes sayin'

A few days ago ESPN had the stats revised and the 65 yard gain was gone.

not sure about NCAA stats.
