Simply incredible game....no way could you predict that finish.


Genius....he invented the 4-3 defense in the 60's, ...but the true genius was he invented an offense to defeat his own defense.  That genius was Tom Landry.

 

Top 1st rd rated players, these include those with 1-2 rd grades:

 

DE:                DT:               CB:                     FS:    SS:          LB:              ILB:

Gregory         Williams        Waynes              0       Collins     Fowler Jr.    McKinney

Ray                Shelton         Peters                                         Beasley

Dupree          Brown           Williams

Odighizuwa   Phillips         

Armstead      Goldman

Hunter           Davis

 

QB:                 RB:              WR:                     TE:    OT:               OG:    C:

Winston          Gordon        Cooper                 0       Scherff          0        Dismukes

Mariota           Gurley          White                            Peat

Hundley                              Parker                           Collins

                                           Green-Beckham            Clemmings

                                           Strong                            Flowers

                                           Coates                           Erving                                                               

                                           Funchess

 

There are 41 sure and potentially rated 1st rd picks available as of 13 Feb per Draftscout.com.  There are 13 total DE's & DT's available with potential 1st rd grades and 3 CB's.  That's 16 D players of first round grade of 26 teams before us of which 8-12 are slated to grab an O player.  If that falls into place that leaves 7-12 teams vying for 16 D players and of those 8-10 are expected to go for CB, S or LB.  That in turn gives us a heck of an opportunity to jump on one of the remaining 4-6 1st rd rated DE's or DT's, probably DuPree or Brown.  I like those odds for our needs and even if that changes a couple of players, we still are in pretty sure position.

Ohio St vs FSU? I'll take Ohio St because I can't stand FSU!!!


Cowboys 2015 wish list. Pass rushers. CB's that can turn and look for the ball. Run the ball on 3rd and 1. No empty backfield sets. No zone coverage ever. Win the NFCE again!! Bacon for everyone!! GO COWBOYS!!!

OSU shoulda gotten beat by a bad Michigan team today... there's still hope for them to lose the BigTen title game.
If Mizzu handles A&M (and then Auburn) I would prefer to see them face FSU b/c I think the Seminoles would kill the Buckeyes... but it just may be Auburn's "destiny" to go once the calculations are complete after them beating the top ranked team and then another top5 team next week, whereas OSU's strength of schedule continues to decrease b/c of the BigTen ranked teams that keep on losing.

It's going to be interesting. Alabama just complicated everything in a BIG way......

Saban was -21 when faced with FG decisions. Same kicker that missed 75 FGs against LSU, and you have had 2 years to replace him. How do you only let AJ McCarron attempt 1 pass in final 11 minutes? Why was Yeldon the only RB on the field second half? Saban called the game entirely too tight in the 2nd half and especially the 4th quarter.

 

Congrats to Auburn for having more points on the board. Final parting shot, all things considered, I truly believe Auburn wins in OT.

Note to self: Cross Saban of the list...... :rolleyes:

Not really, Florida State is 10-20 points better than anyone else. Alabama was the only team that could have beat them.

 

Once you start looking at the "field", Ohio State doesn't have 5 players on offense and defense that could start for FSU or Alabama.

 

Missouri would be the only team I would give a puncher's chance to beat Florida State. They have units that match up well with anyone.

I believe he put a different kicker in for the last try. The last kicker made a couple of 50 plus yarders for Calhoun (?) in the state championship game in Georgia a couple of years ago.
Ohio State has weak schedule will they play State in championship game? If so the Spartans are way better IMO.

My gosh was this ever an exciting game. 'bama had their chances and Saban couldn't win for losing (insert clearing throat). It was meant to be for those cats. Did anyone watch them two weeks ago with that winning catch.

 

I thought that would be the play of the year, but Auburn seemed to have topped that one with beating the tide. Loved that one sign: Roll Tears Roll. Didn't know McCarron's gf was an Auburn fan. WOW, just wow. That's tough. Then the game earlier, Ohio State. They must use the same good luck charm Auburn uses lol. And to think LSU's game last night was going to be the exciting one lol.

Oh he did for the last one, but all those guys nail FGs in high school. I feel sorry for Cade Foster though, he has already tried to change his twitter handle. Sometimes the coach has to protect the player from himself. No way he should miss more than 2 fgs in a game. You don't let him attempt anymore.

We were sitting inside Razoos and I was sneaking peaks at the game. OK fine. I was doing more than peaking.

 

Close game and was hoping big time for the upset. We were all getting up to leave with still a little bit of time left. We all get back to the house to finish celebrating the party. I had to go take some medicine and the guys were in the living room in total awe. I see the replay and it's simply unbelievable.

 

I loved it!!!!!

WAR EAGLE!!!!  Loved to see my alma mater pull it out!  I already have had, probably legitimate, death threats from Bama fans.  

I am getting sooo drunk right now!!!

Sounds like I missed a great game. I know my friend that's a Bama fan is sick right now.
