SERIOUSLY, WHAT?

Kevin C. Cox

WHAT THE HELL DO YOU SAY ABOUT THIS. CHRIS DAVIS JUST RETURNED A MISSED FIELD GOAL 109 YARDS FOR A TOUCHDOWN. ON THE LAST PLAY OF THE GAME. TO BEAT NO. 1 ALABAMA. AUBURN IS 11-1 AND GOING TO PLAY IN THE SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. THIS IS A THING THAT IS HAPPENING. IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE A DREAM.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT NO ONE WHO WATCHES SPORTS THAT COMPARES TO WHAT JUST HAPPENED IN JORDAN-HARE STADIUM. THE GAME WAS GOING INTO OVERTIME. AND THEN NICK SABAN LOBBIED TO GET AN EXTRA SECOND PUT BACK ON THE CLOCK. AND THEN HE TRIED TO KICK AFTER ALABAMA HAD MISSED THREE FIELD GOALS IN THE GAME. THAT'S HOW IT PLAYED OUT. THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? WHERE ARE WE AND WHAT IS THIS EXISTENCE. ARE SPORTS CANCELED FROM HERE ON OUT, OR DO WE CALL SPORTS SOMETHING ELSE FROM NOW ON? BECAUSE NOTHING ANYONE EVER WATCHES THAT IS LABELED AS "SPORTS" WILL EVER BE IN THE SAME UNIVERSE AS THE 2013 IRON BOWL. AUBURN 34, ALABAMA 28 IS SOMETHING ELSE.

CHRIS DAVIS, YOU GODDAMN BEAUTY. YOU'RE A DAMN SENIOR WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH SO MANY HIGHS AND LOWS AS AN AUBURN TIGER, AND YOU JUST PULLED OFF THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS THING IN THE HISTORY OF SPORTING COMPETITION. NO, THAT'S NOT AN OVERSTATEMENT. YOU ARE A LEGEND AMONG MEN.

NICK MARSHALL, PEOPLE DISPARAGE YOU. PEOPLE CALL YOU "A DEFENSIVE BACK TAKING SNAPS." PEOPLE CALL AUBURN ONE-DIMENSIONAL BECAUSE OF YOUR ARM. THEY CAN ALL GO TO HELL. YOU KEPT AUBURN IN THE GAME WITH YOUR LEGS, AND THEN YOU MADE THE BEST OPTION DECISION SEEN IN SOME TIME, TYING THE GAME.

TRE MASON. YOU'RE A DAMN WORKHORSE. NO ONE IN CRIMSON AND WHITE THOUGHT AUBURN COULD RUN AGAINST ALABAMA, AND YOU PUT UP 164 YARDS ON THE GROUND, DOMINATING AGAINST THE TIDE DEFENSIVE FRONT. YOU'RE A WORKHORSE, AND YOU SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS ONE OF AUBURN'S BEST-EVER RUNNING BACKS.

AUBURN DEFENSIVE LINE, WHAT YOU DID IN THE FOURTH QUARTER WAS INCREDIBLE. ALABAMA KEPT GETTING THE BALL IN AUBURN TERRITORY WITH A CHANCE TO CLOSE THE DOOR, AND YOU KEPT GETTING PRESSURE ON A.J. MCCARRON AND STOPPING T.J. YELDON SHORT OF THE FIRST DOWN MARKER. AUBURN DOESN'T WIN WITHOUT YOUR EFFORT, AND YOU DESERVE AS MUCH PRAISE AS ANYONE.

EVERYONE ELSE, I LOVE YOU ALL. WAR DAMN EAGLE FOREVER.
