    How’d the Blue Out go?

  3. Jay Stokes Says:

    from TV it looked like the “blue out” was semi-successful. there was a lot of blue, but not as much as i would have liked to see. you’d think rebel fans would wear blue to home games more instead of consistently wearing red. you could call every home game a “red out”. sometimes you’d think it was the georgia fans you were looking at from a distance.

    just my opinion……..more blue is a good thing.

    I like the red better. Every piece of OM gear we have is red. Except for the Colonel Reb hat wifey bought me when she was still in school.

    Sneed was getting bashed pretty bad yesterday in the stadium, but there’s reason for why he was doing what he was doing……2 words…..Marks & Coleman. Both guys will probably be playing on Sundays in the near future. Those guys are top DL in the SEC, and can get pressure on any QB in the country consistently for about 3 quarters. By the 4th, with Auburn’s offense, they are just out of gas. There was a reason Auburn was preseason top 15, and their DL was one of the main reasons.
    Although their D was pretty good, our’s is getting alot of credit that I’m not 100% sure is deserved. It was definetely a bend but don’t break defense yesterday and I guess you could argue that we didn’t have any catastrophic big plays against our secondary, but we sure didn’t break the trend of making sub-par QB’s look like Heisman Trophy contenders. 300+ yard game from Burns, I guarantee you if you asked Tubby before the game if Burns throws for 300+, he’d had a smile on his face a mile wide b/c he would have been sure they’d won handly.

    A quick comment on the blue-force or whatever you want to call it. Blue DOES NOT stand out enough to overwhlem. I kind of just blended with the landscaping of the stadium, where I’d argue Red is bold and easily stands out in any stadium.

    One last thing….the ruling on the Auburn WR stepping out of bounds could have been applied to the Alabama-Ole Miss Game one year ago, but was chosen not to. Since it was the judgement of the line’s judge that he was forced out of bounds yesterday, since the LJ gave the catch to Shay Hodge a year ago, wouldn’t that say the exact same thing???? It just seems like we are on the butt-end of these reviews 99.9% of the time. Am I just a biased Ole Miss fan on this one, or someone with a different perspective feel remotely close to my sentiments????? I’m ok with your honesty, remember, I’m a realist first and foremost.

    The negative calls tend to stand out in memory. Does anybody have any numbers they care to post? They don’t keep stats on these — or don’t release stats — and I haven’t kept up with them call-by-call myself.

    PA, I can’t remember the exact %, but if anyone has the Florida vs. Georgia game, or the Ole Miss vs Auburn game recorded, listen to when Richt makes his first coach’s challenge (ball spot challenge), as well as the challenges made by Nutt and Tuberville. I recall both sets of announcers mentioning that SEC coaches are having around a 10% success rate in coaches’ challenges. So, I don’t think it is just Ole Miss getting the negative results from these reviews. Also, we got payback when Eason was ruled already down when he fumbled at the end of the game. It could easily be argued that the ball was coming out before his knee hit the ground. The announcers seemed to think it was a fumble. It was hard to tell, but I’m glad that one went our way.

    your article mentioned that the fans were still late despite the players’ request to be early. Not sure if anyone else has commented on this but I don’t think it was because they were slow to leave the Grove. The traffic & parking were atrocious, we left at 10 a.m.(to target getting there at 10:30) from the south side of Lamar near the the hospital & got to a reserved spot near the stadium at 11:20. The 11:30 start had something to do with it, most folks didn’t expect such delays.

  11. djrebel Says:

    Rebnutt, I agree. When the game is at 6 or even 1 p.m., traffic is better, because people arrive at different times. AT 11:30 it all bottlenecks.

    I also think an hour in the stadium before kickoff isn’t for everyone. I do think people could start getting there about 30 minutes before and crank things up a little bit.

    What about total silence as we enter the stadium, keep it that way until the guest asks r u ready. Then the eruption of hotty toddy and its on from there. This would be very hard to do with all the students, u know they cant be quiet. It would be fun to try though.
