    Saban, end of game rant against officials

    Anybody ever figure out why Saban blew his fuse after we took a knee?
    I always figure Saban is correct or he would stay cool, I didn't see what set him off.
    I'l hang up and listen.

    i think he was ticked that they didn't just let the clock run out.

    Yeah... it was basically a situation where the refs could have taken their time to spot the ball and let the clock run out. Auburn definitely wouldn't have objected considering the outcome of the game.

    Auburn folks are saying he was mad that the last play allowed Tre Mason to get 1000 yards on the season. Which makes no sense, because why not just score again?

    They might have. I think the reason Auburn wanted the ball back was to get Tre Mason over 1,000 yards for the season. He had 997 then on the last play he rushed for 5 yards to end the season with 1,002. I know its kind of a meaningless stat but still it puts you in "that" group of running backs this year.

    On their boards, some of their saner fans pointed out that there would be no way Saban could have known on the sideline exactly how many yds Mason had, nor would he have cared...

    I seriously doubt either team kept up with the stats during the game. If either did (Bama included), they have no business even playing the game.

    I be willing to say that during the last 5 min drive Bama had while eating up clock someone mentioned it to thier OC. The broadcasters knew right away that that play put him over 1k so Im sure someone on Auburns staff knew the same.

    I think Bama's sideline knew about Bama players' situations (Lacy came out immediately after getting 1,000 yds.), and Auburn knew about Auburn's players' situations (Mason got that last carry). I doubt that Bama's sideline knew or cared about Auburn's players' situations. I don't think that's what Saban was mad about. I think he just wanted the clock to run out after our final kneel-down.

    Saban, end of game rant against officials

    I'm glad he is on our sideline. My wife is a pretty good lip reader and he was letting the official have an earful plus more. I don't blame him for blowing a gasket.

    True, plus all of that happened before Auburn ran the ball on that last play anyway. He just wanted the officials to run the clock because the players and coaching staffs for both teams had already started making their way onto the field thinking that the game was over.

    if coach was against letting him get to 1000 yards i am pretty sure they would not have gotten the ball back. the rant was basically coach Saban coaching for 4 qtrs

    Yea on ITAT they were having a blast saying he was trying to stop Mason from getting 1,000 (crazy)

    From how I understood it, he wanted the refs to just run the clock and if you noticed they cut to Chiz right after we took a knee and he was walking off the field towards Saban as well as he thought they would run the clock as well. He looked just a surprised as Saban that they didn't run the clock. I think Saban was just ticked that they refused to run the clock unless the barn came back on the field. He said something like "hey I didn't want to score" or something like that.
