TET College Pick’em WEEK 3 Results
Well, week 3 has brought out the wringing of the hands and putting people closer to the panic button in many college football programs. I wish I could say that our Auburn Tigers are excluded from the above comment, but alas, reading some fan’s comments here and abroad show that a chalk line has been drawn to mark the proverbial “jumping off spot” if we don’t turn this team around soon. I for one am not there yet and still believe the team is not a complete washout in just week three.
Sure, I’m frustrated too. Every time Coach Malzahn says the phrase, “We just have to figure out how to get better,” I cringe with the rest of those that hear his statement and wonder why we are still in “figure out” mode. I refuse to believe, however, that Coach M, all of a sudden, has lost his complete ability to win games. I have to remind myself that there are many ins and outs as to why things are done on the field and off the field that I have no idea about, and that gives me some reason to understand…some.
That doesn’t mean I am happy with everything, but then again, neither is the coaching staff or the team. They know more than we do that things need to get better, and no one is going to work harder than this team and coaching staff.
So, I’ll take a deep breath and continue to support my team, my coaches, my Tigers until the last chip falls. You won’t hear me boo from the stands, ask for the coaches’ head, tear down a 18-21-year-old player who is playing his heart out for the University he is loyal to.
Call me a homer, but through the good and the bad, it’s still great to be an Auburn Tiger, and that goes beyond the playing field. Auburn is tradition, family, history, and you can’t take that away no matter how bad a season or how good a season, and for that I will always be “All In.” That’s why I became an Auburn Tiger fan in the first place.
