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.

    • I was looking at the pitching free agents available over at MLBtraderumors.com, and I remember thinking that we are going to look at the worst guy in the pile, and then manage to find someone worse.
    • It had an assist from generic rooting for Game 7 and more baseball, but being in the Astros corner for that rally (perhaps marking high water mark of Nate Eovaldi career attainment) was a fun 8th/9th inning. I didn't love still using Pressly with the big lead, but looking at Roster Resource everybody but tonight's bulk hero Cristian Javier had pitched yesterday except Odorizzi, so Dusty maybe didn't have another option besides sending Jake Odorizzi down there to try and warm up hastily as they were making it 9-2.   Top of Red Sox lineup got precious looks at Pressly going towards last three games. I guess we get Framber v. Sale/Houck tomorrow afternoon.
    • I thought it would be interesting to keep up with all the different players who are projected by different publications for the Orioles to choose as the top draft pick in 2022. Of course some of these publications will have much more merit than others but I'll list everything I come across just for the sake of interest. Initially, here is what I see: Elijah Green.   https://throughthefencebaseball.com/2022-mlb-mock-draft-1-0-elijah-green-brooks-lee/ Brooks Lee.  http://www.mymlbdraft.com/MLB-Mock-Draft Terrmarr Johnson.   https://medium.com/minor-league-madhouse/2022-mlb-mock-draft-end-of-season-edition-ae9f30e87719 Druw Jones.   https://www.prospectslive.com/prospects-live/2021/10/3/a-why-so-soon-2022-mlb-mock-draft  
    • We need ILBs that push Queen to special teams.
    • Dodgers Will Smith 3.28.1995, 32nd pick in the draft from Louisville Lamar Jackson 1.7.1997, 32nd pick in the draft from Louisville Working out pretty well for both clubs. These are the kinds of things that four+ hour 8.5 inning games let you think up. Smith settling into cleanup for a juggernaut as a 26-year-old catcher - go get' em Adley. Fantastic game today making it a series* - Dodgers have first franchise 3-run rally late in postseason to set alongside franchise record for Wins this year.   Evan Phillips today's streamer adding his bit to the data set at David Price's expense around RP10 being >>> SP4 in baseball world with these roster rules.   I imagine it feels somewhat incorrect to Friedman he can't option him tonight. *I probably still might have guessed Dodgers ~20% shot even if they lost today.  
    • Good to hear that he is already undergoing chemotherapy and that he has the right mindset to beat this terrible enemy.  
    • Adley will help to improve the team some, but he cannot create talent where there is pitifully little.  Now with all the high draft choices and the horrible records of the past few years, of course one would expect to see some improvement in W/L.  But as my 95 year Grandmother always  said before she passed on,  YOU CANNOT MAKE A SILK PURSE OUT OF A SOWS EAR.  Same applies to baseball talent.  You cannot  come up with enough talent in the short term, and maybe a little beyond,  to  overcome  all the sins of  the previous number of years.
