Did Auburn Cheat?,….
Did you notice how Derrick Henry could not plant his foot to make a cut? But the auburn players didn’t seem to have that problem. There was a possible reason for that. Add this to the equation, the auburn area hasn’t seen any rainfall of significance since November the 8th. So drainage on the field wasn’t a problem from the rain.
Alabama did make some adjustments at halftime in what schemes to play on both sides of the ball but the Bama team also added longer cleats. They were not prepared for the watered down field. Neither were the officials as this was evident from one official trying to stop out of bounds and landed on his backside. Luckily he wasn’t hurt. auburn on the other hand knew the field was wet and was already wearing the longer cleats.
So where did all of this water come from? It wasn’t from the clouds.
