Twitter reacts to Auburn losing to Alabama in the Iron Bowl
It wasn’t the outcome they wanted but the Auburn Tigers represented themselves well Saturday in the Iron Bowl.
Yes, they lost 49-27 to Alabama but they fought at every opportunity and continued to play hard despite having a disappointing season. Cadillac Williams likely won’t become the next head coach but he and the rest of the coaching staff deserved plenty of credit for what they did with the roster.
Auburn’s offense had another great game running the ball. They averaged 7.4 yards per carry and finished with 318 yards and two touchdowns. Robby Ashford showed just how dangerous of a runner he can be, wracking up 121 yards rushing and two touchdowns on the ground.
Auburn fans took to Twitter after the game to show their pride in their team.
Thanks @CoachCaddy24 for injecting life into this fanbase and program

Down 18… regardless you have to score at least two TDs to win. Kicking the FG gives you the opportunity for the onside and extends the game. Right call. Lol

CADILLAC JUST COACHED HIS AUBURN TIGERS IN THE IRON BOWL, let that sink in for a minute and let’s all give thanks for the tremendous love he showed the players and for the 💯 turnaround he provided for that entire team this past month. THAT’S MY COACH, #WarEagle 🧡💙

“We need a game manager” BS we need a coach that’s going to do what’s best for the guys in that lockeroom and someone who can get the best out of those guy that’s what Auburn needs and they got it right now

Tank Bigsby and Jarquez Hunter are dogs. So glad they got to show out the last 4 games. Nation should have been put on notice earlier but we never took advantage. Hunter being back next year will be awesome. Tank will be a dawg in the NFL!

watching Ashford in an offense that asks him to do things Ashford is good at doing and not things he's not good at is a lot of fun
