    Auburn wrap-up: Necessary or not, Bama makes its statement

    Somewhere in this world, it makes sense, with 2:31 on the first-half clock and playing your rival in your rival's house, to sit on a three-point deficit and go into the half down 17-14.

    That place is not Bryant-Denny Stadium, that's for sure. But that didn't stop Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn from doing the above Saturday evening with his Tigers closely trailing a much more explosive – and better – Alabama team.

    There is some legitimate anti-gus sentiment in this article. I don't think I've ever seen him so sharply state his thoughts on any coach in this way. It was lovely.

    Gus is truly a circus clown coach. He's perfect for their fan base, but Jess is right, most of their fans hate him.

    I'll give him credit for somehow catching lightning in a bottle twice (really once; last year was more about injuries than anything else). But last night was an embarrassment of a team that knew it couldn't compete, and wouldn't do the honorable thing of at least trying.

    Jess, YOU did not need to end the season that way, but you did! That was wonderful, like the Bulls in the 90s. Roll Tide sir.

    Honorable mention to LaBryan Ray. He played a heck of a game and that does bode well for the SECCG.

    Which was worse? Malzahn running out the first half clock or Saban letting him?

    In the first half! Saban had his timeouts and should not have let him run out the clock!

    "Remember when you were wasting time in seventh-grade study hall and you started drawing up trick plays in your spiral notebooks because you couldn’t stomach any more algebra? In Auburn, they call that “offensive coordination.”

    Brilliant, in both form and substance, Jess.

    And as for one of this week's literary gems?

    "More importantly, ask Auburn how it feels to be completely impotent on offense without resorting to a heavy dose of the playground-level trickery that has become Gus Malzahn’s signature."

    Bravo!
