No appeal for ejected Auburn defenders

Earlier today, Auburn head coach Gene Chizik seemed to be holding out hope that senior defensive linemen Michael Goggans and Mike Blanc -- neither a starter, but both regular rotation members at defensive end and tackle, respectively -- could somehow avoid the SEC -mandated half-game suspension for their ejections at the end of the Tigers' win over Georgia .

The league office has wasted no time, however, in letting Chizik know he should probably go ahead and hope for something more likely , like a pogo stick:
SEC associate commissioner Charles Bloom said Monday there is no appeal, and, such, Blanc and Goggans will not be available in the first half of the Nov. 26 game [against Alabama] ...

Chizik said he was "embarrassed" by the actions of Blanc and Goggans after the game.
"That's not who we are,'' he said.
Whatever Auburn's defense was, what it is now is down two players who might have helped Auburn keep in check an Alabama offense that (despite the occasional sputter this season) remains loaded with talent and may be fully back on track after unloading 452 total yards and 30 points on a good Mississippi State defense.

The Tigers have made a habit this season of falling behind early and dominating late, but on the road against a team with the Tide's combination of offensive explosiveness and defensive coaching acumen, another slow start could prove fatal to their BCS championship hopes. Goggans' and Blanc's absences don't guarantee yet another start like that, but they certainly won't help Auburn avoid one, either.

"How can a true Ga. fan can say Roll tide. How can any school in competition yell another teams war cry?"

How quickly you forget last year's Iron Bowl. Nearly every AU fan shown after the game was doing the gator chomp at our players, an indication that Auburn fans were cheering for Florida to beat us in the SEC Championship. How is that any different than saying Roll Tide?

DH4AUBURN Its Real Easy To Pull For Bama

sp;     DH4AUBURN Its easy to pull for Bama for several reason. 1) the big fat AZZ fairlly and his driving the QB.s into the ground like he has all year. The SEC zebras were warned to watch him. They watched his cheap shots but what did they call? 2) cam is a crook and a thief just like bush and he ran around all day smiling at the camera as if to say. Me and my daddy can take  $200 k from who ever we want. I can get caught cheating 3 times at the UF. I can get 20 driving tickets including 1 driving under suspension and 1 still unresoled while at UF, but nothing can be done about it. Because meyer wanted me to stay there so he covered up the cheating and the tickets. the buying the stolen lap top the Florida police gave him a get out of jail free card. So he is a thief, crook, and and a cheat and he runs arould all day knowing he like bush will get away with eveything. I hope the Saban led Bama team BUST THE CROOKS BUBBLE.

You missed the point.  Newton played a great game.  The suspension of two defensive starters for the first half gives Alabama an advantage they did not need to have.  Couple that with a Fairley Unsportsman like conduct ejection will give a great boost.  Fairley has pile drived QBs in several games and so far he has gotten off likely. 

Good teams do not give other good teams any unecessary breaks.  Auburn has already given Alabama a break.  Auburn could be its own worst enemy. 

Losing a chance at the national championship because of a series of cheap shots would be tragic and unecessary.  A great writer once said something like this, The seed of a man's destruction is inside him.

Oh just for the record, I am an Army Graduate (West Point).

Auburn is walking a fine line and not too well.  They made numerous plays that at best were unsportsmen like.  Fairley was lucky that he didn't break Murray's when pile drived into the ground in the first quarter quarter.  Late hits, fists thrown instead of straight arms and dropping on the back of an opponent's legs show lack of control and disciplne.  What makes it worst all were not necessary and were all deliberate.

Auburn better get control of it or Goggans and Blanc won't be the only players to sit.

it's official! Chizik is the scummiest of the scum. Apeeal for those two players? If he had any intedrity he would be suspending Fairly also. "We do not teach that kind of play here at Auburn" he says. Yes. But it is more than obvious now that  YOU DO NOT TEACH NOT TO DO IT EITHER. SEC office and Auburn continue to look bad.
