Observations

-We made Tech’s passing attack look like one of the best in the nation. It seemed like their guys were wide open throughout the game and they were consistently able to get behind our defense backs. Our secondary has been an issue all year and we really haven’t seen improvement since Clemson. That’s disappointing.

-A big reason for the early deficit was our inability to get a stop in long yardage situations. On Tech’s first  two drives, the defense made some good plays to get them into third and long- which is exactly where you want them (their offense isn’t built for third and long). On both third and longs, Tech was able to come up with a big pass play.

How to improve the running game?

Overall, I’d have to say that our running game this season has been serviceable.  It was supposed to be one of the brightest spots on the team, but injuries prevented it from being that.  As good as Brendan and JJ may turn out to be, they aren’t Gurley and Marshall.  Also, there’s no statistic for battles lost at the point of attack.  At times, our offensive line seemed to lack the PUNCH it needed to truly take advantage of opposing teams’ lines, and thus open the roadways for our backs.  Then, at other times, there were holes big enough for Gary Danielson’s ego to run through.  Look, the fact is, you’re not going to blow everyone off the ball all the time.  Somebody’s gonna nut-up against you, and you have to fight through that.  Sometimes your kids are going to get hurt, and you have to fight through that.  Georgia having to rely on 3rd and 4th string running backs leaves us in the bottom third of rushing in the conference.  It’s not a huge surprise.
You ask yourself…how can the running game improve next season?  There are two very obvious answers -
Don’t get hurt.
him
Get more consistent line play.

Auburn AD politicking for the national title game – Go Missouri!

“An SEC team can’t get left out of the [BCS title game] with one loss,” he told USA Today“We just beat the No. 1 team in the nation … And a one-loss SEC team that wins in Atlanta — if it’s us or Missouri — you can’t get left out of the BCS after you beat the No. 1 team. We have a better argument because we beat the No. 1 team.”

Jacobs also made references to Ohio State’s close call against Michigan and Auburn’s snub in 2004 — when Tommy Tuberville’s 12-0 Tigers were left out of the BCS Championship Game in favor of preseason No. 1 USC and No. 2 Oklahoma, who also ran the table.

“It’s already happened in 2004, and it would be a disservice to the nation if we got left out,” Jacobs told Dan Wolken.

A “disservice to the nation” is pretty clearly an overstatement — there’s a Maine lobsterman out there who will, in fact, not be affected one bit if Auburn wins the SEC and heads to the Sugar Bowl — though Jacobs might be forgiven for being a bit emotional in the wake of a win like Saturday’s, not to mention the still-fresh wounds of 2004. (If Ohio State and Florida State win their respective leagues and finish Nos. 1 and 2 in the BCS standings, the 2004 Tigers will go down as the only team from a BCS league other than the Big East to go undefeated and not play for a national title in the BCS era.)

That kid could probably make some decent money betting all the local frat boys against some beer pong.  Also, corn dogs are, indeed, amazing.

You don't want to play beer pong with that kid
