Did you see that game? I did, and I have no clue how all this transpired. I don't know how Georgia came back, and I don't know how we pulled it out in the end. No words will do it justice, so let's just get to the initial thoughts.
- What can possibly be said about Auburn's turnaround that hasn't already been said? Malzahn has taken this team from 3-9 to 10-1 and an outside chance of playing for a national title. Not saying it's likely, but think about the massive pendulum swing from last season. Gustav Malzahn is a football wizard.
- Auburn will go to the ends of the earth to show just how much the "bend but don't break" defense can be stretched.
- Auburn is still really good at running the ball, but...
- Playcalling still gets weird at the most inopportune times.
- Ricardo Louis is going to be a damn fine wide receiver.
- Nick Marshall is, and likely always will be, a feast-or-famine quarterback. His success in the air during the first half is what allowed Auburn to dominate the Georgia defense. However, his inaccuracy played at least a small role in the second half Bulldog surge
- 323 rushing yards is a pretty big number considering the lack of success in the fourth quarter
- Defense struggled after the first quarter. Like, alot.
- The line stopped getting pressure, linebackers were ugly all night, and the secondary was torched routinely.
- Bottom line: We are 10-1 and AT LEAST Sugar Bowl bound.
War Eagle, all.
