From the Orange and Blue Goggle wearer…

By on August 15th, 2013 in Member Post 6 Comments »

I’m firmly convinced the Tiger Shock and AU will commence in about 16 days. Many of our problems in 2012 had nothing to do with lack of talent. The problems we had are very fixable and from what I hear, read and see they are or will be fixed. Brothers and Sisters of the Auburn family, we’ve not really seen what Coach Malzahn can do without restraints.

I can remember how we made in-game adjustments and turned things around dramatically at halftime when it looked a little grim for the first 30 minutes. Reference 24-7 at the half of one particular game in 2010 and the QB’s family shuckin’ and jivin’ in the stands. And that was while Coach Chizik was demanding we slow it down to protect our defense.

No slowing down this season. I think we know why a few coaches in the league are crying crocodile tears and asking for rule changes. Let ’em cry a little now and just maybe, a lot later on.

Go Tigers-War Eagle-Kick ’em in the Butt Big Blue !

    I agree Auh20,

    The Tigers are going to shock some folks.

    While I am orange and blue trough and through, I hope you temper your expectations with some reality. These players quit on each other last year, which isn’t something you recover from quickly. I agree that we do have talent and that with proper coaching and discipline that we should see great improvement but when we weren’t even competitive against SEC competition, great improvement could be just that….being competitive….not winning.

    I will always hold Auburn to the highest competitive standards, but you have to walk before you can run, so if we can be in some games with a chance to win early in the season, i’ ll be happy….but I will expect them to continue to improve throughout the year.

    It is a good season in my opinion if we show competitiveness and improvement throughout the season. I’m not that caught up with wins and losses. Of course, I always want to win. But, the more important factor is how well Auburn improves each game. There are too many Auburn people still thinking we’re going to be great this season and it bothers me. That’s not going to happen. We will improve and hopefully drastically. But, we should be thrilled beyond all belief if we only lose nine games.

      I’m hoping “only lose 9 games” is not what you meant. That should thrill NO Auburn person and would show NO improvement from the 2012 debacle. I’d bet money I can’t afford to lose that Auburn will earn a bowl game this year and beat at least 2 or 3 “overdogs”. And I took off the goggles to this.

        Hell no I’m not talking about 9 losses. Let’s get real here. I’m talking about going 7-5. I don’t expect 9-3 but I do see 7 or 8 wins this season. So, I suppose we’re not that far off from each other. I’m simply saying we won’t be better than 8 wins. I think it would be a mistake to expect 9 or more.
