    I'm pretty sure this is correct.^^^^ With Bell out he didn't need or want to get anyone else hurt. Besides the band had already started playing Rammer Jammer and we had to sing it 4 times. lol

    Re: Saban, end of game rant against officials

    I agree with most here. The most humiliating thing for the Auburn team was to have to go back out and run one more play that ultimately had no effect on the outcome of the game. I think the AU players wanted the game to just end and stop the beating. By prolonging it one more play, it was just more painful for them. Coach was trying to do the respectful thing. Sometimes you just need to shoot the tiger to put it out of its misery.
    I think I recall an asst coach whispering to chizik near the end of the game. It probably had something to do with Tre needing 2 more yards. Obviously Saban had no idea about that. I think Saban could have calmed it down a little though. No need to blow a gasket over just one more play. Be upset then let it go.

    I think Mason had a bonus clause in his contract for going over 1,000 yards LOL

    Mason's a good back. He might be our 4th back after Drake.

    Exactly! Why would we have taken a knee, if we wanted to prevent the AU back from getting his 1000 yds. The ITAT board regularly just ignores common sense...

    Re: Saban, end of game rant against officials

    I don't think CNS cared one way or another how many yards any player had, theirs or ours. He's not the type of coach to concern himself with such matters. Neither is he the type of coach to intentionally run up the score on a helpless and hapless football squad who's been soundly beaten. So I completely understand taking a knee to end the game. We do that in lots of games, just not on 4th down because that's the only time that taking a knee stops the clock. If there's any time left on the clock at all, the other teams gets the ball back, 1st & 10. So, I'm just wondering why on earth any coach would choose to take a knee on 4th down.
    But that really doesn't matter, because it's over and done with days ago, and that's OK by me.

    I enjoy coach getting angry. I see it as him being all serious and buisness about his job,team,and football in general. I'll gladly accept that.

    I see where you are coming from when you say that, but I disagree. Coach understands that individual statistics are important to players, as well as to a player's perception by media, awards ceremonies, and NFL scouts. That is why he has kept an RB in the game against an inferior opponent until just when they hit the 100 yard mark. Also, others have pointed out that Eddie stayed in the game until he got his 1000 yards for the season. I agree that in general he has his sights on more of the team direction, but he is not blind to individual players.

    I'm not suggesting that the rant was over Mason getting to 1000 yards. I believe he just wanted them to run the clock after the change of possession since the game was over.

    I don't really agree about the individual stats. Lacy had 99 yards against Western Carolina. That extra yard would have been pretty easy to gain. The best example I can think of though is McElroy in 2010. He needed 13 more passing yards to become the only Alabama quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in a season, but he was taken out of the bowl game with plenty of time left.

    I'm sure Bama wasn't keeping up, but I would be willing to bet that AU was. I don't think it was coincidence that Tre was in the game for the last handoff. It was so obvious that even Vern mentioned Tre getting 1000 yards.

    We already lost Bell in the game as well as ivory going out. I'm sure the only thing on CNS's mind was the game clock showing 0's. One more play run is one more chance for injury.
