  1. Difficult to win when Auburn consistently fields 17 against 11. Arky was screwed and so was Ole Miss. Only thing in common is both are lower tier SEC schools. Should’ve been a safety for OM and would’ve gotten the ball back. Good to see the pandemic isn’t impacting upper echelon SEC bias this year….

  2. Lol I cannot stand gus malzahn and I still think Auburn is a bad bad team but they were just making up for the blown call on the kickoff return and that is facts. Also, no one points out in the arkansas game that it was a backwards pass…YES. But the Auburn Receiver shedrick jackson had the ball in his hands just in case it was actually a fumble and then he dropped it after the ref kept blowing his whistle. So auburn still would have had a loss of down and still been in field goal range. People in the media kept saying the Arkansas guy “recovered the fumble” and thats 100% false. Go back and look at the plays but yes the refs did blow both of the calls but the results are reported incorrectly especially on the Arkansas game. I am a student at Alabama and I even noticed these two things.

  3. Oh my gosh. Y’all…get out with the bias talk and calm down. In college FB it doesn’t matter whether Shivers touched the ball or not. He did not gain possession, therefore it is not a fumble. According to the NCAA rule book, whether he touches the ball or not, once it goes into the end zone it is a touchback *automatically.* That is not true in the NFL. But that is the rule in college football. The announcers had no idea what they were talking about and neither did, ironically, Gene Chizik or any of the other announcers at the studios – not to mention Twitter, and now this post. Good grief.
