In case you missed our start of this series, we have already talked about the season opener against Arkansas. Next up for our Tigers is a home game against San Jose State(SJSt). SJSt finished the 2013 season 6-6 with a final game victory over Fresno State by a score of 62-52.
The Spartans have a high powered offense that averaged 32.4 points per game last year. Their defense however averaged giving up more than 35 points per game, and ranked 104th in scoring defense. If SJSt wants to leave JHS with a win, the west coast Spartans will need to do much better than that.
This will be the second year under their coach Ron Caragher. Their Defensive Coordinator is 2 time Super Bowl Champion DC Greg Robinson. Robinson has coached on four NFL teams. History tells us that teams make a huge jump in improvement during their second year with new coaches. This team should know the coaches systems well.
Auburn will be able to let the starters rest some in this one late, and get the back ups some game time in front of the home crowd. Playing in Jordan-Hare Stadium the Spartans are likely to be playing in front of the largest crowd many of their players will get to experience in their careers. Lets make sure they remember the experience. Be loud!
I always find pride in the fact that many fan bases that visit JHS for the first time, are very complimentary of our Southern Hospitality. Lets make sure to roll out the welcome mats for their fans.
Welcome to Auburn. We sure hope the rest of your season is enjoyable.
