Auburn 48, Alabama 45

We all saw what happened.

  • Anders Carlson had made 36% of his career attempts over 40 yards. He made all four of his 40+ attempts today including one from 52, and drilled another 54 yarder that was pulled off the board.
  • Auburn got a free kick from the officials, but they made it.
  • There was a 14 point swing on the luckiest pick six you’ve ever seen, that rewarded Auburn DBs for their patented intentional holding strategy, but Mac has to understand that it’s only first down and throw that thing into the seats. Oh, and on first and goal from the two, run the damn ball, Sark.

Mostly though, just too many mistakes. Surely none of you thought the last kick was going in.

Oh, well. We get to be among the peasants for the first time in the playoff era. It’s not fun, but that’s life. We just didn’t have the horses this year.

Roll Tide.
