Fellas, love the show, but enough with the hatin’ on Ricardo Louis. It’s a heads-up play.
First off, yes, he is not in position to make the catch. And yes, irregardless of everything, he is – and we are – incredibly lucky.
But Van is trying to say he just kept running aimlessly when the ball was tipped and it just landed in his hands magically. Shenanigans! Look at his helmet while the ball is in the air – he’s watching that ball the whole time. He never lost sight of it, from when it was tipped until he had it in his hands. Give him and Coach Craig some well-deserved credit.
Moreover, I might argue that if he goes up to make a play on the ball against three bulldogs he’s not coming down with it. Praying for a tipped ball might have had a better percentage than fighting three UGA DB’s in mid-air.

Not sure waiting and not going up was intentional and certainly not that is was tactically sound, but it definitely worked. I will say this to all the “it was just luck” comments out there: Georgia could have won this way too. Auburn’s just better at it than they are.
I just want to echo Magruder… ENOUGH! Louis watched that ball ALL THE WAY IN! So please.. PLEASE..quit describing it as pure luck. Those guys run tip drills all the time and Louis did his job. The luck came with Georgia tipping the ball instead of knocking it down like they practice I’m sure. Had they done they’re job we wouldn’t be talking about an Auburn win. I think Ricardo Louis deserves more credit for not giving up on the play like Georgia did and for doing what he was supposed to do and what he practices everyday. It was a miracle that a bad pass was tipped and that Ricardo got the chance to make the play. Anyway…War Eagle and beat bammer!
