Toe to Toe with the Roosters
Auburn opens as a 3 point road favorite here but if you look at the numbers, that doesn't add up.

South Carolina's strength is run defense (giving up 96 yards per game). To be fair, only one opponent appears to have a run game (Tennessee) but you play who you play. Muschamp's dudes give it up through the air to the tune of 234 a game. South Carolina's offense produces yards and points (averaging just under 400 yards a game and 30 points per).

Auburn's defense surrenders 155 on the ground and 265 in the air per game. And, like SCar, Auburn only has one stellar opponent so far and lost by a lot more of a margin. Auburn only surrenders 23 but the blowout to Georgia keeps the average offensive points to 22.

So, how does Auburn win this game? The passing game is the way to go but not the usual hurl it into space passing game from Auburn. All those cool crossing and mesh routes used against Kentucky would be useful here to chew up yards and clock. It's also smart to go with quick read and throw considering how much the o line struggles in protection and the happy feet of Bo Nix.

South Carolina is probably gonna do what Arkansas did (and what Georgia did in the second half). Run, let the clock roll, throw underneath, and play keep away.

I think we are in for a fight. What say you? (Kaos, we know; you don't care and wish we didn't either. Saved you a post.)

Re: Toe to Toe with the Roosters
In K’s defense, I think it’ll be the ss:dd. Because of what he wrote yesterday. Seriously. Why would anyone think any different. 

As far as the matchup - another opponent appearing worse talent wise or more dysfunctional than auburn has never stopped a Gus coached team from losing before. See Tennessee two years ago. See Arkansas almost last week. I don’t trust anything this staff does. We know what we’re getting. I’ve fallen to the side of apathy and just know what’s coming. Trying to apply logic and or X’s and O’s To this is fruitless. It really is. And I wish it wasn’t.

Re: Toe to Toe with the Roosters
What a total disaster.

Didn't watch a down and am glad for it. Had a feeling this would go south.

From the WOKESPN lowlights:
- Bo Nix still thinks he's in high school. Seth is done with him and looks like Flash is as well.
- Tank Bigsby is wasted behind the worst offensive line I've seen at Auburn since the 3-9 year and those guys would beat the shoot out of these guys. No toughness; no balls.
- Chad Morris is a grifter. I was totally wrong here. Wish I hadn't thought otherwise. Feel dumb now.
- This defense is gar-bage in pressure situations and they are going to give up soon. Cream puff in the redone. They aren't helped by this offense but still, they are not tough.
- Gus doesn't know wth to do ever
- When Will Muschamp outcoaches you, take the buyout and buy some Waffle House franchises you hack!

This schizophrenic idiot of a coach still thinks his way will work. Watch his post game presser. They’re gonna look at the tape. They’re gonna get better. My god this is insanity.

I didn’t watch either but here’s what I gathered.

Bo Nix is a school boy bitch who couldn’t out throw Jeremy Johnson if his life depended on it.

Tank, if you’re reading this, you’re a fudgeing beast and I’m sorry you have one of the worst Olines in SEC history blocking for you. (fudge you Gus you C cup freak)

Defensive line, did you practice when Brown and Davidson were here?? Or is the O line so bad that we now can’t develop defensive line players?

Gus is just a fudgeing idiot, I may have covered this.

And if Will Muschamp beats you, you don’t deserve to ride the bus back to Auburn. I love Will Muschamp to.  I give much of our defensive credit to him for his one year. He changed our D mentally and we’re honestly getting soft again.

fudge you Gus. Also, I would take Jay Jacobs clit back in the AD over the fool running it now.

Re: Toe to Toe with the Roosters
Nix didn't forget how to ball.  Morris is fudgeing him.  Seth was caught flat footed and sulking, and gave up the touchdown.

Tank was averaging nearly 7ypc and he wasn't on the field on the last drive.  Wasted deep shot to the end zone on the first play of the last drive.  Dumb fudge two point conversion early in the game.  This loss is 90% Morris and 10% middle DL.

All of this. Every word. And even what Wes said. 700k for this idiot is a worse travesty than Gus’ buyout.

There. I said it.

Re: Toe to Toe with the Roosters
I'm so glad that I decided to work in the yard rather than this atrocity.  I told my son, "the next news we should hear from AU is that they have fired Gus".  That would be the only good thing to come from this.

If/when they do fire Gus I may start watching again, until then, Auburn is just caught in a Gus loop of SSDD. 

Poor prep time.
Poor game management.
Poor player development (especially QB)

I'm not sure about 90%, but we are definitely seeing the results of no offseason prep. Maybe if we had an underground facility.

I was a bit upset at Seth. He was getting his ass handed to him by Horn, and he started to remind me of a pouty Duke Williams.
Maybe this will prompt Bo to find a few different receivers. I think he has been focused on Seth and Flash too much. He should be looking for a white or Navy jersey only, not a number.
It does seem that the team has taken on the the don't give a damn attitude of their coach.
And for the sake of all that is holy, stop jawing after a play when you are getting beat!
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Re: Toe to Toe with the Roosters
Several things, all positive:

I'm just stunned by how little talent we have on both sides of the line.  I've said this many times before.  This offensive line, save for one transfer from Akron, consists of the same schleps who couldn't beat out our horrible offensive linemen the last two years. They're quite pathetic.

Yes, we lost Derrick Brown and Marlon Davidson.  How is it that the best two we have to replace them are Truesdale and Newkirk?  My gawd!  And Big Kat....why are you even dressing out?  Has he even been in on a tackle this year?  Not being sarcastic here.  I honestly haven't seen him near anybody. 

Chad, ya started out with a beautiful game plan.  Quick passes, and yes, the slants Auburn people have been screaming for, for years and years.  Distributing the ball to multiple receivers.  Then........  What happened, Chad?  Was the first series scripted? 

And Jamien Sherwood, please enter the transporter thingy asap.  You're an embarrassing, punk ass bitch.  Take your thug ass somewhere else, pleeeeeaase.  

Tank Bigsby is a beast!!!

Told you it was all positive.
Boy, giraffes are selfish.  Just running around, looking out for #1....getting hit by lightning.....

Seth, Bo and the rest are all symptoms of the problem.
