WAS THAT THE ONLY PLAY IN GSU’S PLAYBOOK? : JAGUARS HOLD TO WIN A REAL CLASSIC!!!

Good morning,  I hope that everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving….Now lets’ get to it. There was alot at stake down in New Orleans as the Southern Jaguars and the Grambling State Tigers meet for the 41st time in their annual Bayou Classic in the Mercedes Benz Superdome. With all the trash talking and blog bullying going on for two weeks, it was finally time to put your money up or shut up. Leading up to this game, a birth to the 2014 SWAC Championship to take the Alcorn State Braves was at stake also. With a huge crowd expected, both the Jags and Tigers didn’t disappoint. As the game approached, the fans were treated to a free concert prior to kick off as well as a ton of vendors along Poydras Blvd five minutes from the dome. The game kicked off with the Jaguars holding on to an eraly lead of 14-10 and later to a 31-10 halftime cushion. Southern’s size and speed gave the Tigers fits during the first half. QB Justin Howard and Deonte Shorts lead charges up and down the field as RB Leonard Tillary, WR Willie Quinn, and Mike Jones were spectacular during the first half. The JAGUAR defense kept pressure on GSU’s QB Johnathan Williams as they harrassed him most of the night. The Tigers did manage to get on board right before halftime as Williams found WR Hebert in the endzone to cut the deficet. Coach Fobbs and his creww made adjustmants at the half and fireworks were instore for the second half. After holding the Jags , the Tigers started a barrage of scoring to close the gap to a one Touch down game. with the Jags leading 52-45 under 2 minutes left into the game, the Tigers were able to move the ball down to the Jaguars half inch line. With 6 seconds left to play , the entire Super dome expected atleast a tie or over time at best. Well, history was made by a play called to seal the deal for Southern University. As GSU QB approached under center, Southern called a time out. Coach Dawson Odums reassure his Jags that if the hold, the game would be thiers for the taking. GSU on the other hand never changed the play. Coach Fobbs stated that a spike was in the deck but it never happened. GSU’S spread offense remained on the field and as QB Williams lined up under center, the Jags DE’S and LB became a wall. forcing Williams and the Tigers offense line back for a two yard loss. As time experied, the Jags celebrated while the Tigers were at a loss. Coach Fobbs challenged the play but to no avail, the Jags held on and Williams never croassed to plane. As the official called ” ball game”, The Jaguar Nation erupted!!… As I sat watching the Tigers gather to their Alma Mater, one would think, ” Was that the right call?” or ” What idiot made that call”? Heading to thier locker room, the crying began abd the Tiger Nation was up in a roar about that last play called. However, the Jaguars celebrated like it was 1999. QB Frosh sensation Justin Howard was voted the game’s Most Outstanding Player. He along with GSU’s QB made the classic a ” classic”  again…..To all my GSU peeps, keep your head up…..there is light at the end of the tunnel. To my Jags…..work still needs to be done. Alcorn State will be a deck to claim what’s theirs……..stay tuned…….realsportsrealtalk…..
