    I'm pretty sure I saw him say "we could have scored" or similar, as if to say 'c'mon, we're trying to end this game...'

    Exactly - I am sure that is why Drake was pulled. He was too much of a threat to score and Saban was ready to call off the dogs.

    ^This^ He was mad before Mason ever ran the ball.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    This is more logical. Saban has enough to worry about with our team.

    I've certainly seen refs just let the clock run before. It was pretty ridiculous not to.

    I would love to see a reporter ask Saban how he feels about Mason making 1000 yards against his team.

    Not sure what the point is of "letting" a guy get two more, or however many, more yards. Surely the point is you have to earn them.

    I lip read it as 'Come on, we could have scored...'
    Since it's Auburn, maybe we should have pulled a SOS and ran it in, BUT...
    Coach Saban's not that kind of guy. He tried to be classy.

    More importantly, IMO, it was about given Howell, a senior, the opportunity to score a td against Auburn. They gave him 3 chances near the goal line and on 3rd down the OL opened up a lane almost as wide as Bryant Drive but Howell just didn't have the speed to bust up in the hole before it closed down. Took a knee then our 4th down.

    API had better watch what they say, they may not get a total of 2 yards next year at the IB.

    CNS was just trying to end the beating gracefully.

    I would guess that he was angry that one more play meant one more opportunity to have an injury.
