In what may have been his final college game, Nick Fairley led a ferocious Auburn defense that held Oregon to a season-low in rushing.
If you had told me two days ago that we would only score 22 points, I would have thought that we would get our teeth kicked in. Wow - what a GREAT game the defense played! They were fantastic - especialy on the two goal line stands. And don't forget Ryan Shoemaker; playing in his last game, having been replaced twice in his career; when he wasn't booming 45+ yard kicks, he was dropping them inside the 20. What an amazing game! It's great to be an Auburn Tiger!
Great game by great young men
Chip Kelly, " I will give Auburn credit, they have a great front four" and they are coached by one of their own great front four !!!!!! The Rock !!!!!
It's a new day in Auburn football!
Fascinating that before the game, when Coach Chizik was asked about the key match-up--he knew.
"No question," he said. Then he went on to talk about Auburn's D-Line against Oregon's offensive line. He sounded like he was writing today's headlines.
There was a lot of talk of Chip Kelly's genius, and he's got a great mind for the game. But quiet Gene Chizik out-coached another opponent--and as humble as he is, very few will notice.
WDE! Wow, I mean WOW. If only Cam and Fairley would come back for their senior seasons! I know it's being selfish, but man, we could potentially do it again! WDE!
I must admit being somewhat critical of the D, especially pass coverage. With the exception of a couple of coverage mix-ups they were flawless last night. Nothing anyone says can truly depict how GREAT the D line performed from start to finish. As it was in 1957, it is still great to be an Auburn Tiger! This one was a long time coming but worth the wait!
Congratulations Tigers and WAR DAMN EAGLE!!

Someone said that Hell would freeze over if Auburn ever won the BCS National Championship. Monday's forecast for Tuscaloosa: 1 inch of ice. War Eagle

Kudus ($1 to Terry Henley from the pep rally) to Nick Fairley and our best defensive performance in a long while!!!
That my friend gave me a big laugh, thanks for adding to my day.
CGM said that he was concerned coming out of spring practice that the offensive line could not block Nick and than when the season started he discovered no one else could either. It has been great watching Nick play and would love to see him come back for his senior year, however it will be hard to turn down what he is about to be offered. I wish him well in what ever he decides to do.
I spoke with Nick Fairley's parents at the hotel before the game. They are a great pair ! Super nice people ! I asked her if Nick was ready and she said she had just talked to him and he said he was ! I think she had a tear in her eye ! Really nice moment ! I am blessed to have been able to be there and witness this whole wonderful event ! War Damn Eagle everybody ! Let's just enjoy !
I always love the D guys. Nick became my favorite about game 3. Cam is great and all that but my favorite plays are on the D side. War Eagle!
Auburn people feel a deep and passionate responsibility to uphold standards not written on paper, but lived from the heart.
