Well damn. Defense really let me down. Thought we had it there at the end. LSU played great. I’m seriously impressed and completely disappointed in Calzada all at the same time. 


But defense lost this one. 10 wins out the window. 9wins and a great bowl game in sight. On to 2022.

Felt like that was a win-win situation.  I'm glad they got the win, and sent O and 19 seniors out with a win, and I guess will accept a bowl bid.  On the other hand, had Aggie won, I was looking forward to them putting us out of our misery.  As it stands, I'll be watching one more game of this slow-motion train wreck that makes me need a new class of blood pressure meds.  Srsly...I hope none of you are subjecting yourself to watching this junk.  We used to be entertaining even if we lost.  Now it's just painfully awkward even if we win.

LSU has a strange set of wins and losses this year for sure.

Maybe that's what happens when you have top 10 talent and a coach that can't figure out which buttons to push.

The Iron Bowl was quite interesting this year.  It's always a fun game for me because whoever loses, I'm happy. 

I thought as soon as the AU back ran out of bounds that was it.  I was certain Alabama was going to come back and tie it up, and I also figured OT favored Alabama for several reasons.  It played out exactly like I thought it would.  Gritty comeback for Alabama, no doubt, but to me it more or less wasn't in question.  Alabama has been really good in two minute drills, and they preserved a time out with that dumb play. 

It was bad on the back's part to run out of bounds--you NEVER want to trade the yards for stopping the clock in that situation unless you know for sure you're getting the first down.  And he had plenty of time to see he may very well not make it.  Get down, punt.  Make them either burn the last TO or run 40 seconds off the clock.  Either one would've done Alabama in.  But the real goat there is Bobo who I guess called that play.  I wouldn't ever call a wide run like that one that even puts your player in a position to go out of bounds.  Run him up the middle and don't worry about the first down.  Alabama was likely cooked if anything BUT that run out of bounds happened. 

AU played a hard fought game against the Tide, but for that part at the end they absolutely deserved to lose imo.

He came to within a yard of making the first down which would have won it and he really didn't run out of bounds. He got thrown out. Auburn then kicked the ball down to the three yard line. Alabama had a third and ten from the three. What a thrilling end of a disaster.
