Auburn's Daniel Carlson had a career day against Arkansas State. The junior kicker accounted for 21 of Auburn's 51 points against ASU. He was three for three on field goal attempts, hit six PAT's, and ran for a touchdown off a fake field goal attempt. Today the SEC named him Special Teams Player of the Week, an honor he shares...

The offense was moving. The defense was immovable. The toilet paper was flowing. For a few hours Saturday night, all was right with the world. On a day when the rest of the SEC looked ordinary, Auburn looked like something more—like a complete football team. It was football unlike anything we’ve seen in these parts for quite...

I have spent the past week trying to find words that adequately describe what took place in Jordan-Hare Stadium last weekend, and—much like Auburn's offense—I have come up short. Gus Malzahn's quarterback rotation was a carousel of calamity. To say it was puzzling would be polite—embarrassing and inept are much better de... Read Full Story
After a disappointing year that put coach Gus Malzahn on the "hot seat," Malzahn didn't quiet his critics as the Auburn offense sputtered to one of the most baffling game plans in recent history. As typical, there is a lot of over reaction by fans, but should Malzahn be pushed out or allowed to stay the course? Look at the data trends that define if and when fans should move on from the Gus Bus.
Run or pass? The defense can tell, just based upon who comes on the field.(Tight end lined up wide? Definitely a deceptive run.)(Photo by Acid Reign.) War Eagle, everybody! Ordinarily, one would not think a matchup featuring Auburn and Arkansas State would be an important game. However, this Saturday's tilt is very... Read Full Story
We've heard the mantra for so long, it's now a cliche - "The game is played for sixty minutes or longer. Whatever is shown on the scoreboard at the end is what counts, not before." Nowhere was that more true than in the games played this last weekend. The SEC played a series of big games against power five conference teams whose match ups seemed to mirror Bowl-Game-like scenarios from the past.
Unfortunately, those games revealed that the SEC's historical power might be a thing of the distant past. Because what was most evident this last weekend to me was not how the SEC has changed from the heady days of eight straight National Championships, but how little it had changed from the more recent history of last year.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around last Saturday's game. When I left the gates of Jordan-Hare following Sean White's final two heaves toward the end zone, I was silent, confused and heartbroken by a game that should have never even come that close. So many questions swirled in my head, and many of them are still left unan... Read Full Story
Here are the results of WEEK ONE of our Track' Em Tigers College Pick'em. The SEC took a sucker punch last weekend and was down for the count in many surprising games.

Gus Malzahn met the press today and made some significant statements. Probably none were more welcomed by fans than his statement that he would not be using three quarterbacks this week against Arkansas State. In fact the remarks seem to indicate the quarterback-by-committee game plan would be shelved permanently." Offensively, ... Read Full Story
As I sat in Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday night I wondered if Gus Malzahn's plan to use three quarterbacks was designed to confuse the Clemson defensive coordinator. If so I'm not sure how much it confused him or his defense, but it certainly left the Auburn faithful puzzled. The rotation of signal callers resembled a spring game... Read Full Story
How do you sum up Saturday’s loss? It was one of the best performances we’ve ever seen. It was also the most perplexing, mind-blowing exhibit we’ve witnessed in our lifetime. Of course, I’m talking about the lights-out defense and Gus Malzahn’s wacky science experiment.Malzahn had nine months to prepare, and this is wh... Read Full Story

If the experts are to be believed, Auburn stands no chance tomorrow night against Clemson. We're too young, too untalented, and quite simply, just too disappointing in 2015 to put up any kind of fight against the mighty Clemson Tigers. It's certainly a statement to how a previous season's performance can shift the perception of... Read Full Story
