The rest of the bowl games have yet to be played at the time this is being written.
Two points: 1. The SEC is reasserting itself in these bowl games, and 2. Auburn’s 2015 season should be seen in the proper perspective.
We played quality opponents, and our losses were close losses except against LSU. We play in the toughest CFB conference Watch the bowl games and compare how we did versus how the current bowl opponents fare against our opponents.
I should have waited until after all the bowl games were played to this for a complete analysis, but I just felt this needed to be said. Auburn wasn’t a total failure this season. It was a tough slate of games we played. Our opponents are doing well in their bowl games. Keep the faith and don’t be too down on the program.
