LSU Fullback Copeland says Auburn â€œDidn’t want to hit at allâ€
By:Â John Pennington -Â MR. SEC
LSU fullback JC Copeland has fired a shot toward the Auburn football program that you can bet has fans of the Plainsmen riled up today.Â The 280-pound bruiser remembers his Tigers 45-10 win over AUâ€™s Tigers for the hits heÂ didnâ€™tÂ have to dole out:Â â€œThe most memorable game Iâ€™ve had this year, Iâ€™ve got to say, was Auburn, because after the first couple of hits, everybody (on AUâ€™s defense) was just backing up.Â They didnâ€™t want to hit at all. â€¦ Before I got to them, they just fell down and just laid on the ground.Â I actually said, â€˜Câ€™mon man, youâ€™re better than that.Â Câ€™mon, hit me.Â That was likeÂ the only game I went home and had no nicks and bruises at all.â€ Â Yikes. Â Â Makes you wonder if Georgiaâ€™s Mark Richt was referring to Auburnâ€™s D when he said pre-SEC title game: â€œIâ€™ve seen people just start jumping out of the way of this guy, literally.â€ One thing you can be sure of is thisâ€¦ you can bet that Gene ChizikÂ will post Copelandâ€™s comments all over Auburnâ€™s football complex in the week running up to next yearâ€™s LSU game.
