The Tigers lost a tough game to defending national champion Clemson early on, but with Mississippi State, LSU, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Alabama on their schedule, there is still plenty of football for the to look forward to playing this season.

(vs. LSU, 10/27/2019)

 

Auburn was the victim of an awful rule in college football late in the 4th quarter of this game.

LSU had the ball and a 3-point lead with 2:32 left to play, and Auburn had no timeouts left. So if LSU ran 3 plays without getting a 1st down (and without stopping the clock by running out of bounds or throwing an incomplete pass), Auburn would have been due to get the ball back with at least 20 or 25 seconds left to play. On 1st down, LSU was called for holding ........ but the clock continued to run after the referees marked off the 10-yard penalty, essentially giving LSU an extra down in terms of running time off of the clock. So they were actually rewarded for that holding penalty, which allowed them to run all of the time off of the clock instead of having to punt the ball back to Auburn on 4th down.

 

In the NFL, in the same situation, the clock stops AND STAYS STOPPED ........ hence, a team which has possession of the ball and a small lead late in the 4th quarter (as did LSU yesterday afternoon) does not get rewarded for committing penalties.

Obviously it’s a stupid rule. The NCAA is full of them. I hope some team abuses it to the point where they have to change it. 
 

That said, it’s not the reason we lost. I’m proud that we hung in there against the best team I’ve seen all year. If our QB could get his nerves together on the road, we’d be 8-0 and staring down the playoffs.

I agree, it's highly unlikely that Auburn would have won the game without that extremely questionable rule. They probably would have gotten the ball back deep in their own territory with only 25 seconds left to play and no timeouts.

It's still very annoying to see it (that rule) play out that way, as it did in the 2003 season Fiesta Bowl between Kansas State and Ohio State.

Malzahn amassed a 68-35 overall record, including going 39-27 in SEC play.

In his first (very memorable) season at Auburn in 2013, he led the Tigers to the National Championship game against Florida State.

    • Watching the O's against the Rays and now the Astros shows just how far they are from being competitive.  They are not even close right now and don't have the firepower in the minors yet.  We really need pitching along with LF, 2B, 3B, and SS help.  We're still in the "building young player depth" phase right now.  It is disappointing and frustrating, but that's where we're at.  I was hoping 2022 might start to turn the corner but it won't be at least until 2023 before we see significant improvement at the big league level.  No first round picks in 2014 and 2016 set this re-build back.
    • What are the chances we see Mickey Jannis called up to work out of the bullpen? And I fully admit it's because I want to see a knuckleball pitcher on the team.
    • If Lopez can consistently give you 65 good pitches, which he apparently can based on this season, He is a perfect piggyback starter, and I just cannot fathom why they haven’t heard him with another guy who can go 50 pitches, to make a workable tandem.
    • I don’t understand the logic in the promotions or non-promotions. The guys who are next up for the rotation are not Elite prospects. Even if they’re bad, the fans would much rather watch them be bad then guys like Harvey or Eshelman. Every time the question is discussed here,  The only explanations offered are service time, Somebody has to eat innings, and we don’t care about wins, but all of those are flawed arguments. It is easy to align a throwing schedule with the next available start, so that’s not a viable defense either. It is actually good for the team to see what this second tier guys offer. If Wells has possibilities, for Pete’s sake’s let him audition now. Even if Lowther is no better than Akin Let’s find out now, and so on. There is no justification for keeping Harvey around any more than there was for keeping LeBlanc. I wish the beats would ask that question and not accept the typical non-answer.
    • Beat me to it. This team is starting Steve Wilkerson, Maikel Franco and Pedro Severino almost everyday. The lowest ERA of any current active starter is 5.95. The bullpen has three relievers with an ERA under 4.07. Pat Valaikia has the most PAs at 2B and has a .529 OPS. No outfielder has an OPS over .700 besides Cedric Mullins.  Outside of that we're probably just cursed. lol  
    • Yep, he hasn't hurt us or cost us a game this year.   At worst he's taken a roster spot that some slightly less bad reliever might have taken.   But we can't DFA him until after the season if we want to keep him. The decision to keep him or not will be based in entirely on how he projects in the minds of Elias and company, not how he pitches now.
    • Maybe not, but I also worry about how much of his immense 2021 gains will evaporate without whatever it is that he has been putting on his fingers. If we could get a Bedard-like deal for him right now, I think it is something that should be considered very seriously, especially since being competitive by 2023 seems more and more like a pipe dream with the early returns (or lack thereof) on the first batch of prospects like Akin, Kremer, Zimmerman, Lowther, etc. Hell, I would even consider selling high on Mullins at this point. Between Means, Mancini, Mullins, and Fry, and the virtually unprecedented rate of injuries this year, we could absolutely clean up at the deadline with an eye on 2023 or, more realistically, 2024.
