Excellent post! I was really excited heading into this season with the staff changes but was weary of the growing pains that were sure to come along with them. I saw a lot of positives in the Clemson game & a few in the beginning of the Miss St game on defense. The offense took a huge step backwards but think of the first few seasons with Jason Campbell & a different OC every year. He looked lost until his Sr year with Borges. I'm not too concerned with KF's future. After all, he's been running Malzahn's offense for quite a while.
CBV stated they lacked size for his style on defense when he arrived. That doesn't excuse the poor fundamentals & execution but the player's with experience have to un-learn Ted Roof's coaching for the last few seasons.
On offense we don't have a bruiser RB to run between the tackles that the pro-style offense works best with. Blakely may fill that role eventually but he is basically a true freshman from an experience standpoint.
I'm an Auburn man regardless of the record this season or any other. I feel we will see steady improvement over the remainder of the season & more confidence from the players. WDE!
That is an educated, well-reasoned, and flawlessly logical observation about the nature of fans and program. Unfortunately however, reason and flawless logic are seldom appreciated around here. As I always say : "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it have an intelligent thought".
CAMJUICE ANYONE??? ALL IN EVERYDAY. We Are the PITBULLS OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL.!! Enuff SAID. WDE.
I think a lot of people agree with you. There is a difference however. Auburn had bright spots during the Clemson Game. A new DC or OC doesn't effect "basics" that this kids are lacking, and have lacked since coming.
The problem people are having is we actually got worse, then better, against Miss. St. That is the problem.
Again, I hate losing, but I want to be competitive. I saw nothing of the sort last Saturday.

Worry only about things which you can change, the rest will either work themselves out or kill you......either way, no more worries.
