    this is the last thing i am going to post about the Auburn game. Congrats to our special teams for an absolute whale of a game. You couldn't have asked for anything more. 6 punts, ZERO return yards, and 5 pinned inside the 10. Add a Josh Jasper 48 yard field goal. Excellent job by Jasper and Helton. Keep it up fellas.

    Absolutely, and a majority of the reason that this game was as close as it was. By pinning AU back inside the 5 several times it limited what they could do. When there was really no threat of the pass our D was able to key in on run plays and were successful at holding them. The damage to our D came when AU's O had breathing room and our D had to make the choice of defend the pass or the run. AU unfortunately won that battel more often than not. I will defend the D to some extent, because outside of 3 unbelievable runs by AU they did a pretty good job at containing AU's O. Those 3 runs accounted for 150 yds of AU's total O and 2 of their scores.
