- Jordan Jefferson is our only QB to ever start 4 bowl games. Hodson and Herb had chances but we imploded in both of their Sr. seasons. AJ has a chance to replicate JJ’s feat.
- I don’t think JLee ever took a snap in bowl game. (ETA: see correction in post-below)
- We made history this year: f...

| Tiger Rant|| Only SEC Team to Ever Do This? Making History! - AlwysATgr on 12/4/13 at 3:02 pm|
During the Arky broadcast it was noted that Landry-OBJ were only the 3rd SEC receiving tandem to both eclipse the 1000yd mark in a season. The other two were UF ('96 and '01 I think). If so, then I think we're the first team in SEC history to have:
3000+ passer (way to go Mett!)
Two 1000 yd rece...
| Tiger Rant|| How Did Auburn Get It Done vs Bama and We Didn't? - AlwysATgr on 12/3/13 at 12:50 pm|
Fluke? Home field advantage? Talent? Scheme? How do you explain it?
It seemed like Auburn ran the same play (zone read?) over-n-over-again and rarely without success.
I know, someone will ask 'how did we get it done vs Auburn and Bama didn't'? Idea for another thread....
| SEC Rant|| How Many Times Did Auburn Run the Zone Read vs Bama? UPDATED! - AlwysATgr on 12/2/13 at 6:08 pm|
Seems like they ran the same play over-n-over-n-over again and rarely was it ineffective. Amazing they got this much mileage out of essentially one single play.

Obviously AJ on the 99 yd drive. But also:
Jeremy Hill - played great all day
Landry - sans OBJ, Landry was outstanding all day.
Pocic (Tr Fr)
D in the 4th qtr. I thought they pretty much stunk for 3 qtrs but they were great in the 4th.

Pocic to Jennings to Dural - FR coming through in the clutch. Just amazing.
Also says a lot to our depth. We lost a lot of people in real-time but still put together a 99 yd drive for the win. :geauxtigers:

This was so out-of-family from what I've seen for the first 10 games I'm just trying to understand how'd we/he (Chief) did it?
Was it scheme? Matchups? Weather? (taking a likin' to this stiff, wind-driven dew stuff). Did someone just put the plug in and now all the lights on the tree came on?

One of the factors that play into so many of our home games getting moved to the afternoon under the current TV contracts is that there are no other appealing games on the same Saturdays as our home games.
Consider this year:
4 SEC away games: 1 day (UGA), the other 3 night (State, OM, and Bama)...

IMO, they're somewhat out of touch but it gets distorted as long ticket sales are good.
They don't realize they we buy tickets not because of what they do but in spite of what they do.

When times are good it seems as if no criticism of the staff is accepted (‘the coaches know football better than us laymen’). When we lose like this, criticism becomes unhinged (fire Les, fire Chavis, fire Stud, fire Raymond).
IMO, there are legitimate concerns that are as evident in winning as i...

The '04 unit wasn't pillaged by the draft, had a lot of talent, and proved to be a great D as the year went on. Yet, they too got blown out in Athens and probably would've been worse had the game been more competitive.
