Wild Ending

http://mountvintagegolf.com/calendar-2/action~oneday/exact_date~237794400/request_format~json/ On Saturday night, the battle of the tigers between LSU and Auburn came to a wild ending at Jordan-Hare Stadium.  With 2:50 left in the fourth quarter, LSU drove down the field to the AUB 20.  It was fourth down when LSU completed a pass for a first down to the AUB 2.  Then the referee called an illegal shift on the offense so LSU had one more chance with 0:01 left.  LSU quarterback Danny Etling passed it to wide receiver D.J. Chark for a TD.  But wait just a minute folks, did you notice the clock?  The clock turned to 0:00 before the snap.  While all of the LSU players were celebrating on the field, Auburn head coach Gus Malzhan was saying “Review it, review it.”  After the official review, the officials ruled the catch was in bounds but they didn’t get the snap off in time.  Then the excited Auburn football players started celebrating on the field and with the students in the stands.  And that was final.  How would you feel if you were LSU?  How would you feel if you were Auburn after the final ruling?

  1. As AU fans, my sons and I were devastated until the TD reversal… then I was so excited I jumped up and hit our ceiling fan on accident!

    I felt bad for those sorry LSU Tigers for a split second, especially knowing the loss cost head coach Les Miles his job.

      Really!! That’s crazy. Is your fan that low? Are you that tall? Ok, it is crazy that Les Miles lost his job because of a snap that was not in time. But, I think LSU had enough of Les Miles.

  2. Auburn won the game. The fact that LSU pulled off an impressive play, capping a strong drive does not trump the clock. Plays undergo reviews routinely. A review must not be changed just because the outcome of the game depends upon it.

  3. Being a tried and true Ole Miss Rebel who, by nature, does not care for LSU, I was very excited that Auburn was able to pull out the win. With modern technology and all the cameras available, we are finally able to get “the true” calls, like them or not. It was a “hold your breath” moment with a great outcome. War Eagle!!!

  4. There Goes Davis!

    Auburn needed to win! Don’t understand why coaches don’t call for field goals on all fourth down/red zone situations. If Daniel Carlson is our best weapon, we should use him 100%.

    Heartbreaking that a long term successful coach, like Les Miles, looses his job after a frustrating loss.

  5. I think they should get new trees
