First Post: Tuesday of Week Six
I'm not as trusting as I once was. You?
I think this game will be much tougher challenge for Auburn. Had Jonathan Crompton been able to complete just regular passes last weekend, that game would have been much different. Arkansas' quarterback, Ryan Mallett, will be able to complete his passes Saturday.
This will be a real test for Auburn's defense. They're aware of it and all, but I'm not sure how they're going to fix the problems that have been around since two-a-days. Auburn will need a serious pass rush, tight coverage and the ability to thoughtfully adjust coverage responsibilities in real-time.
Here's the Auburn situation at this moment:
- Our weekly Auburn Advisory Board report (fan discussion)
- 10/4: Tigers vault into Top 25 polls
- 10/3: AUBURN 26, TENNESSEE 22
- 10/2: What Would Chizik Do? Rally his team around slogan
- 10/1: Tennessee game a homecoming for Taylor
- 9/30:Tigers not worried about poll perception
- 9/29: Our weekly AUBURN ADVISORY BOARD report (fans writing about their team.)
- 9/28: Auburn braces for first test
- 9/27: AUBURN 54, BALL STATE 30
- 9/24: Tigers' offense gets stronger as game progresses
THE VIDEO VAULT
Should be a fun one. I'll be BLOGGIN for your NOGGIN during Chizik's chat at 11:30 p.m. Then I'll grab a bite to eat and return for players around 1 p.m. I think two players were available during the same period last week, so I'm keeping expectations low. Then we'll have a second interview session after practice. I'll be summarizing player interviews and I'll be doing a video ... tonight.
