A Look at the 2012 Auburn Tigers

New Coaches Brian Van Gorder and Scott Loeffler meant what they said about open positions.

It’s a standard part of “Coachspeak” whenever a new Coach comes on the scene, to announce to the world that no position is safe.  Everyone starts with a clean slate and will have to earn their spot from this point forward.  On Tuesday, Coach Gene Chizik released the depth chart […]

Quick Clemson Preview

Let's Play Some Football!

Overall, I’d say the fact that it appears AU will be going right up the gut of defenses this year, means that hopefully they’ll be attacking one of Clemson’s biggest weaknesses. Plus, there’s no reason our D-line shouldn’t be wreaking havoc in their backfield all day. The fact that the TE is gone and one of the best receivers in the country will be a specatator is definitely a plus for the real Tigers. Add to that, Clemson is coming off an ugly bowl loss and the game will be played in an arena that seems to be Auburn’s home away from home….I’m liking our chances more than I did a couple of weeks ago.

Saban’s Crimson Tide, after all, racked up what many consider the nation’s number one recruiting class. Featuring the head coach of the reigning national champion and the clubhouse leader […]

Did Auburn Fail at Recruting?

Did Auburn Fail at Recruting?

Depending on who you listen to, Auburn either under achieved or failed miserably at recruiting this year.  We tend to disagree, on both counts. Not every kid is looking for “immediate playing time” as the primary reason to commit.  If they were, Alabama wouldn’t land any big time recruits. Did […]

BCS and Season Reflections

It begins with defense 2010 was an anomaly.  But not in the way Bama fans want you think.  There are those who claim Auburn was a one-year wonder, but if that’s the case there are a lot of those over the past 20 years.  Perennial “powerhouses” Ohio State, Michigan, Texas […]
