It looks like we know who will get the Tears of Unfathomable Sadness Award....
Alabama auburn ending..,
THERE'S the punch to the soul dong that we were looking for today...
10 years ago #neverforget
Oh my God.
ESPN hasn't updated yet.
They returned a missed field goal for a touchdown in OT.
Not OT. Final play of regulation.
Oh my fault, I could have sworn it was in OT.
Was in regulation with no time left. Have to question Saban for even attempting it.
4 National Titles say that Saban thinks that question can be shoved up a reporter's ass (cuz you know they're gonna be stupid enough to ask it).
And his girlfriend
No, keep the girlfriend, I like her
Why? The odds of making it, and thus winning it right then and there, might be low but its gotta be a whole lot better than, well, *that* happening.
I saw an NFL coach a week or two ago pull back his FG team after the defense put a real return man back there. The coach didn't want a buch of offensive linemen trying to make that tackle.
It may not have been the most likely thing to happen, but it certainly wasn't completely unpredictable. For that matter, neither was a block and return for a TD. A long FG is far from a risk-free event and if your kid hasn't shown the leg in game situations, I think a little second guessing is warranted.
The kickerbwas a true freshman backup, because the starter missed you FGs. Askingbtgat guy to kick a 57 yarder to win the Iorn Bowl is way too much
That's just wow.
as per ESPN title page: Auburn returned a last-second missed field goal for a TD to knock off No. 1 Alabama in a heart-stopping Iron Bowl
Honestly, it kinda hurts. That was the miracle that slipped through our grasp.
Eh. I'm not mad.
Days like this, with two huge rivalry games coming down to the last moment, and one ending in the most improbable way possible (I've never seen a game end that way in America, ever, much less what was at stake) are reminders.
That football is the greatest game on Earth.
Yeah I felt a little twinge too as Auburn began to celebrate
Auburn was ranked #4 going in. We had a back up kicker and hadn't made OSU punt once in the second half. I'm still cool with Brady going for 2 even after Auburn won by going for the tie with 30 seconds left.
pretty sure both teams stopped each other on the first drives of the 2nd half
Omfg!!! I just shat myself!! Wow bcs chaos!!!
Auburn could jump Ohio but it's not likely.
Don't worry, auburn will jump them in the poll. Ohio will reap what they sowed with their blowout losses in '06 and '07 that started the SEC dominance.
You'd better be right. As it stands, Ohio in the MNC and sparty in the rose bowl is a very real possibility. Heaven help us...
Is going to beat ohia
If auburn wins out, they will jump OSU .... Especially with sc and Mizo winning tonight. There is an sec bias and auburn has a much better schedule. We cost OSU a spot I the title game today.
That. Was. Amazing. Gif material for years with these fan reactions.
OMG the Bama father consoling his sons lololololololol
That's what happens when your fans aren't used to losing. It would be nice to be in that position again someday
As good as the sobbing buckeye and sons photo circa 2006?
Wow!! This is huge.
WOW! We just saw an alltimer ending there. Holy Moly!
Think this means we can get Hand to decommit and decide to come to Michigan?
But maybe this will ramp up the Saban to Texas rumors.
Exist in your world?
Smart play by Auburn to have that set up. Great finish. I think they pass OSU. OSU may very we'll lose in the Big Ten Championship game anyway.
OSU beat an unranked team by 1, Auburn beat the No. 1 team. Plus, in the SEC championship Auburn will play a No. 4 or 5 Missouri team. That win will be more impressive than an OSU win over MSU and should give them a bump to No. 2.
I see no way the human voters would do it, even if they do think Auburn is better
If not by Alabama, then who? FSU might be without their heisman QB.
That would be the worst scenario for my heart. Ohio winning because their opponent was plagued by questionable morality. I have never, and will never again, root as hard for Sparty as I will next week. I physically cannot take Urbz in the national championship with Ohio.
Ohio State is not getting out of the Big Ten Championship game alive.
Then MSU goes to the Rose Bowl. We're losers either way. Tough Year for us.
Plus ND and Ohio didn't lose in the regular season last year. The football universe demands more suffering beyond poor seasons for us. At least it led to an enjoyable ND blowout.
Saban to Texas.
Hand to Michigan.
Peppers to Michigan.
Borges to Bolivia?
This day has had two craziest endings for 2 games I've ever seen. Downside now is that buckeyes will move to #2 and prolly are heading to MNC game.
