(Athlon Sports)   Auburn's bizarre road to the BCS Championship reads like a bad (and highly implausible) movie script   (athlonsports.com ) divider line

Mentat: Tyrone Biggums: Wicked Chinchilla: The schedules aren't that different, and FSU performed much better than Auburn on the field and on the scoreboard. Additionally Auburns offense is incredibly one dimensional and they are going up against the 2nd best Rush Defense in the country who have a month to watch tape and strategize. In contrast Auburn has one of the WORST secondaries in the country going up against the 2nd? best pass offense in the nation, and a rush offense that is top 5.

Good luck.

Alabama and Mizzou thought this as well.  Not saying Auburn is going to win, but if we play mistake free it is going to be close.

Auburn's offense is really one dimensional, and it doesn't matter because they run it really really well.  Mizzou made all sorts of defensive adjustments in that game and Auburn compensated for them all.  Mizzou ran the 4-3, the 4-2-5, the 3-3-5.  They dropped their LB's back so they could better read the runner, they moved their LB's up to clog the gaps and force the runner to the outside.  They held back to defend against the play action and cheated on the run daring Auburn to throw.  Every adjustment they made would work for two or three plays before Auburn adjusted, at which point they would push the no-huddle, forcing Mizzou to remain in their defense.  Mizzou knew exactly what they were going to do on offense and still couldn't stop them because Auburn's execution is exceptional.


I think the guys calling the game said something about them trying a 3-man front as well.  It seemed to work for a while. But Auburn adjusted while Mizzou kept trying it.

Mizzou didnt have the LBs to play like that or the CBs to cover one on one
