With the Iron Bowl behind us, I can safely say my frustration with this offensive coaching staff is at an all-time high. Obviously, the injuries to Sean White and Kamryn Pettway contributed to the Tigers' struggles on offense, but the game plan presented was yet again head-scratching and inept. As soon as I saw Chandler Cox take... Read Full Story

The gap between Alabama and Auburn was on full display Saturday but not just on the scoreboard. Alabama's true freshman quarterback outperformed Auburn's senior stand in, Jeremy Johnson. This gap wasn't an outlier but the continuation of an alarming trend.
Poor Gus Malzahn. If only Sean White had been on the field Saturday, things would have been different. At least that’s the narrative coming out of the Auburn Athletic Complex. Don’t be fooled by the nonsense, this offense had no chance even with Aaron Rodgers under center.Few believed Auburn would waltz into Bryant-Denny Sta... Read Full Story

As is tradition here at Track ’Em Tigers, I hope you’ll indulge me while I give thanks for another incredible year…
“It’s a big game and those [young] guys are going to feel it,” said Jeremy. "It’s the biggest game in college football if you ask me.” the Tigers have a great defense, but the game game could well turn on the play of the quarterback. It’s good for the team that the Tiger quarterbacks are like brothers, but which brother will start the 81st Iron Bowl?
