  1. The biggest difference between the two openings was TEMPO. I know that’s cliché, but it’s true. Last year, that “run-to-the-line-cause-we-might-quick-snap-it-oh-yeah-we-NEVER-quick-snap-it-and-I-guess-you-knew-that-and-you-just-called-our-bluff…again” crap was embarrassing. But this year, Auburn hustled to the line and (get this) promptly snapped the ball before the defense was 100% ready. I only recall one time where the offense stood up and looked for a new play after a quick lineup. Nice.

  2. “Auburn ended the 2008 season 5-9 as the problems first glimpsed against Louisiana Monroe snowballed into a season and career-wrecking avalanche.”

    would’ve been nice to be able to play 14 games last year, but winning more than 5 is required for that to happen…5-7, right?

  3. I was curious if we had any 3 and outs. I thought we didn’t. Very good info. Here are a couple of tidbits I gleaned from taking the play-by-play and plugging it into excel: We had 16 plays of 10 yards or more, only 4 negative plays, and 11 “no gains” (which includes incomplete passes). Take away the 93 yard pass, and we still averaged nearly 6 yards per play!

    Oh man, I just have to keep repeating to myself “it was LaTech, it was LaTech, don’t get overly excited” but it sure is promising. Of course, then I think about our depth and grab an extra 6-pack for the game 🙁
