It’s the same ol’ story about having no service once the crowd showed up to campus. I at least got a few pictures of the extremely, massively awesome tailgate, including a good picture and video of Tammy from Finebaum. After around 2pm, I never got anything through. That was until the max exodus in the 2nd half that opened up a few AT&T tower connections.
- GAMEDAY BABBBBBAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!
- Just saw four guys putting up an Auburn flag like the Iwo Jima statue, then applauded themselves for doing so just after.
- Campus is very quiet this morning… a little too quiet.
- Not setting this chair up at the tailgate today.

- Alabama fans, does the Auburn loss make you feel any different about the Alabama loss?
- I’m not sure if it’s some sort of self-troll or not, but if
@finebaum really is cancelled right after the Alabama loss, that’s so Raven…
- Props to the dude in the Tiger hat. WE

Time for a 120 team playoff! Here’s how things would work out in such a scenario:
– Round 1: “The Almighty 120.” Auburn is seeded 77, according to the latest BCS Rankings. They play at higher-seeded Toledo in the 1st round of the inaugural 120 team playoff, which works out perfectly for Jonathan Wallace and the HIGH POWERED Auburn offense. Tre Mason and Ontario McCaleb combine for 200 yards rushing, while the defense comes up strong and sacks Terrance Owens five times.
– Round 2: “The Open Door Sixty-Four.” After Syracuse defeats Utah, Auburn must go on the road again to the Carrier Dome. Behind a surprise strong performance from Quan Bray — 2 TD’s receiving and 1 punt return for a TD — Auburn eeks out a 41-38 victory over the Orange, finally erasing the hurt of the 2001 Carrier Dome loss.
– Round 3: “The Few 32.” Moving to tougher competition in the round of 32, Auburn faces impressive upstart Louisiana Tech and the up-tempo offense of Tony Franklin. With Auburn trailing by two touchdowns at the half and Johnathan Wallace out with a stomach ulcer from Trooper Taylor’s patented Triple Alarm Jamaican Jerk Chicken the night before, Clint Moseley is called to lead the Tigers to victory. Methodically, he leads Auburn on drives of 77, 69 and — most impressively — 93 yards late in the game. As time expires, Moseley finds Trovon Reed in the corner of the endzone for a winning 2-point conversion, and Auburn wins 50-49.
– Round 4: “The Sweet Sixteen.” Auburn travels to Stanford and, in a low scoring affair, defeats the Cardinal thanks to 5 Cody Parkey field goals, including the game winning FG with only 5 seconds remaining. Auburn advances, winning 15-14.
– Round 5: “The Elite Eight.” Meeting the stiffest competition yet in the Elite Eight, Auburn travels to Baton Rouge at night to face LSU. By now, it is late December (only 5 days until Christmas) and a freak snowstorm has blanketed The Corndog State. Similar to the first meeting of the 2012 season, Auburn shuts down the LSU rushing attack. Behind the brilliant play calling of Loeffler, Clint Moseley leads Auburn to a hard-fought 7-6 victory, as Auburn scores on a Moseley bootleg in the endzone. However, he is injured on the play when stepping on a snow shovel leaving the field, and Kiehl Frazier is called upon to pick up the slack as Auburn, the improbably 77 seed, moves to the Final Four.
– Round 6: “The Final Four.” College Station, TX on New Years Eve. Auburn matches up with Texas A&M, vowing to avenge the horrendous loss earlier in the season. This time, Van Gorder steps up to the plate. Cassonova McKinzy records an NCAA record 5 sacks of Johnny Manziel, while the rattled redshirt freshman also throws two interceptions and fumbles once. Behind the steady arm of Frazier, who completes a remarkable 90% of his passes, Auburn fights to a 28 – 24 victory over the Aggies and moves on to the National Championship.
– The National Championship. Miami, Florida — Auburn vs. Oregon. After finishing the season 3 – 9, Auburn has rattled off 6 remarkable wins in the playoffs, all on the road. Now, Gene Chizik and Chip Kelley meet again. Oregon, Pac 12 winners and undefeated with an overall record (including playoffs) of 19 – 0, the Ducks have been entirely unstoppable.
Auburn falls behind early 21 – 3. Clawing back slowly, Auburn still trails at the half 28 – 10. Chizik, pulling together the brilliant minds of Loeffler, Van Gorder, Jay Jacobs, Jay Gouge, and Pat Dye decide to go ALL IN to lead Auburn to victory. In the 2nd half, a new Auburn team emerges.
Emory Blake takes the helm at QB, flanked by Jay Prosch, Trovon Reed, and Ontario McCaleb. However — most shockingly — Auburn debuts the Triple Option. Entirely unprepared, Oregon cannot handle the high speed option offense Loeffler has been saving for months, all for this national championship. Reed and Bray play both ways, recording two interceptions.
With 5 seconds remaining in the game, Cody Parkey lines up for a field goal to tie the game at 45. On the sidelines, Gene Chizik suddenly receives a phone call — it is Tommy Tuberville on the line. Chizik scrambles to call timeout and lets Tommy call the play. Taking the field again, the Tigers line up for the tying 45 yard field goal.
It’s a fake! Channeling Damon Duval, Cody Parkey takes the over the shoulder pitch from the holder and darts around right end as Kiehl Frazier and Jay Prosch flank him as blockers down the sidelines. Frazier, like Sunshine in Remember the Titans, throws his shoulder into hapless Duck defenders, providing the escort. Parkey dives into the endzone and LEADS AUBURN TO THE MOST IMPROBABLE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP OF ALL TIME.
After the game, Gene Chizik receives a lifetime contract with a $75 million buyout.
