Rebuilding A Defense: The Fall


It's not a secret. Really, it's not. Auburn's defense was on a slide from the moment Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks took the field against our Tigers.

That Saturday in Auburn, when we seen the sign that a struggling South Carolina team had figured out the weakness in the Auburn defense, and exploited it to near perfection. Yes, Auburn won the game, but that day, our defensive weaknesses had been exposed for all the world to see.

The Gamecocks completed 30 of 53 pass attempts for nearly a 14 yard per completion rate and 5, count them, 5 touchdown passes. Lots of short passes, and dump screens, kept setting up the long pass for Dylan Thompson, the USC QB.




Next, we will look at the reasons for the defensive collapse and what Will Muschamp may do to change things for our Tigers. Until then....

War Eagle!

Recruiting and Expectations

WELCOME TO AUBURN

This weekend Auburn will hoist the AU Family banner high, and unfold the Welcome mat in hopes of persuading today's High School superstars to continue their athletic endeavors on the Plains.

There is much ado about this weekend being crucial. With may be the highest rated visitor list in Auburn football history in attendance, the Tiger Coaching staff must make this weekend a memorable one for the recruits.

Wesley Sinor of AL.com has compiled a partial list that contains no less than 4 - 5 star athlete visitors HERE.

The expectations are, at least one visitor will commit to play football at Auburn this weekend. Who that will be is anyone's guess. 

Our Tigers are looking for help along the Defensive line, and at Defensive back positions.

If you see any of the visitors around town, be sure to welcome them to Auburn, and give them a big WAR EAGLE!
