Enormous stop by Auburn's defense after that fumbled punt. The momentum could have easily shifted to Alabama right there. The defense has really been the difference for Auburn since the 1st qtr....there wasn't much doubt Newton and Co. would put up some points, it was just going to come down to whether the defense could stop Alabama enough to get them back in the game. Should be a good 4th qtr.

I will be making the biggest bet I've made all year on this game Friday. I can't wait.

With all due respect, Auburn has only played 3 road games this season. how is that possible? Barely beat Miss St & Kentucky, and now goes to "Bama.

Aaaand this is why you shouldn't gamble.. Congrats "Waroriole".

Down 24 points on the road to Alabama & looking bad doing it...and then to comeback and win to remain undefeated and in the national title hunt is just plain unbelievable. I don't think people yet understand how absurdly shocking that was. We shall forever refer to this one as "The Cam-back". War Eagle.

Unbelievable. Alabama completely shut us down in the first half. They were amazing, and Auburn played like crap. But, they kept fighting and showed why they are champions.

Even hours later I still don't know what to say, I've never seen anything like this. Down 24 points to the defending national champs in their stadium, and Auburn comes back and wins and keeps the national championship hopes alive.

All due respect, but I think Oregon will destroy you.

Although Beaner had a similar tune so maybe that's good luck for you guys.

Alabama I liked..Auburn should handle Oregon in my opinion. That comeback yesterday was literally the most impressive I've ever seen.

    • I may be overly bullish with what I said, but what I meant was I think our lineup will be elite to the point a "defense/speed only" CF is probably OK if it came to it.
    • The point is, that if we extend Gunnar for 12 years and $300 million (I just made up a contract with easy math), he isn’t going to make $25 million next season. He’s going to make something like $2 million because it’s a pre-arbitration year. Then he’ll makes something like $7 million in 2026 $12 million in 2027, and $18 million in 2028. A mid market deal for a player (like 3 years for $45 million or 4 years for $56 million) should not impact the team’s ability to pay those salaries in those years. Extensions are about security. Teams don’t just hand exponentially more to players than they would make in those years when they structure the extension. “The Arb game” has nothing to do with this. It is about how extensions are structured and how a shorter term mid-market deal shouldn’t prevent them from paying those types of salaries in the early years of an extension (i.e., the first 3-4 years of an extension). If you don’t believe me, use the Internet and look up what Fernando Tatis Jr. has been paid in the early years of his extension or what Witt Jr. will make.  Burnes is a completely different discussion, but again I don’t believe the team has any interest in extending him. The Lunhow/Elias/Mejdal Astros provide a decent blueprint to what I think they’ll do with respect to pitching.
    • I don't think you can describe anyone who's still in A ball with 133 career pro PAs at age 22 as having a floor of three wins a season. At this point it's an open question as to whether he tops three wins in any MLB season. If you look for comparable players, say .310-.330 OBP, little power, plus-plus basestealing and CF defense, I think the archetype in recent baseball is Michael Bourn. Who did top out with some really good 5-6 win seasons, but tailed off quickly and only had 5-6 seasons as an above-average regular. Beyond him you're looking at guys like Jarrod Dyson, Dee Strange-Gordon, Ben Revere. But only a handful of years each as average to average-plus MLB regulars. And then lots and lots of players who didn't even reach that kind of level. I think we have a few years before we figure out where on that spectrum Bradfield falls.
    • 7 game winning streak since leaving Baltimore, the longest in the league so far this year. 
    • O's caught a huge break when the second base umpire called Jackson safe (rightfully so) in the ninth. No challenges left. Perhaps Hyde set the umpire up with the previous challenge. I lived a long life with the phantom play at second base, glad it wasn't called this time...Cold, late in the game...kudos to the ump.
    • It depends on if they can throw the breaking stuff for strikes. Haven't you heard? The FB is now thrown less than 50% of the time league-wide. 
    • Stealing puts a lot of wear and tear on the body.  So many things can go wrong and it's an incredibly long season.  Keeping their bodies in best shape to perform is very challenging.  I'd like to see them steal, but I think they need to pick their spots.
