Careful Auburn fans. There are a group of Tigers to the West that are on a roll. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Missouri knocks off Auburn Satuday in Atlanta. They have plenty of offense. Plus their quick defense held Johnny Football and the Aggies to just twenty one points in wrapping up the SEC East last week Here is more on Mizzou from the St. Louis Dispatch.
What was YOUR reaction to the longest one second in Iron Bowl history? Here are some I found on youtube.
The 2013 Iron Bowl had been a great game. After a slow start Bama had been resilient. All game long Auburn had been valiant. Then suddenly time had expired. Or had it? After deliberation and some politicing by Nick Saban, a single second was put back on the scoreboard clock. The only question left was how would Alabama use one final snap? The ball was at the Auburn 39 so AJ could easily loft a Hail Mary toward the goal line and just see if fate would smile on the Tide. That's the play I expected. What I did not expect was to see a young freshman kicker with minimal experience enter THIS game at THIS time. But he did. And while the kick wasn't too far off it did fall short. That's when it became the longest, most dreadful second in Alabama's Iron Bowl history. Saban discusses the decision and much more in this complete video of his post game press conference courtsey of CBS 42.
Do you agree with Saban's decision to put it on the young kicker?

Alabama's last trip to Jordan-Hare Stadium worked out just fine for the Tide on their way to a BCS National Championship back in 2011. Here is a youtube highlight video from that Bama rout.
The Jags need your support. Since the Alabama game is on early, and only on PPV, and Auburn is off till the Iron Bowl, you should make plans to get to Ladd-Peebles Stadium for Saturday night's 6pm kickoff between South Alabama and UL Monroe. If you haven't been to a Jags' game I guarentee you will love the experience. And bbefore you head out the door to Ladd feel free to fill up on all these games on the tube. (Courtesy of LSU site)
Excuse me, but I had a rough weekend witnessing the "Prayer at Jorda-Hare." So allow me a football related vdeo I found this morning that helps me smail. Enjoy.
Let's look at this Auburn / Georgia game quickly. The Dogs' rush defense isn't too shabby but Auburn is still going to get some points. Georgia is going to have to find a way to outscore the Tigers to win this game so I turn my focus to the Georgia offense and a player you may not even heard of. Jonathon Rumph could be a key. Everyone knows by now about the depleted skill positions at UGA: Keith Marshall, Malcom Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley are all gone for the year. Todd Gurley has been banged up and is still wel less than 100%. WR Chris Conley and TE Arthur Lynch will try to give it a go on Saturday. So there are still question marks about what playmakers Aaron Murray will have around him. In steps a player who has seen very little playing time because of his own hamstring injury. That's probably why you've never heard of Jonathon Rumph. But because of need, and Rumph's talent, you may now much more about him by the end of the game Saturday. Here is the story from the ajc.
