A look around the Auburn corner of the internet

Over the weekend there were some good articles about where things stand for Auburn in football. They graded where Auburn stands at the half-way point of the 2014 football season. In positional news, they have a piece written on DB Brandon King getting some work at defensive end to try to create an edge rush on four-man rushes. Finally, there is a feature on senior DT Jeff Whitaker and how he's handling his last season after missing last year with an injury.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer talks about true freshman linebacker Tre Williams and what he's doing to increase his playing time. I'm no football expert by any means, but just from seeing Tre on the field so far this season I get the feeling he's going to be something special by the time he leaves once he nails down all the small details.

Ryan Black from the C L-E asks and answers five questions about Auburn at the half-way point.

Justin Garrett is back at linebacker and Ellis Johnson is seeing a lot of potential for him, there.

Defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson met with the media last night. You can read an excellent wrap up of what he said and even watch the video on Auburn Undercover (in an in-front-of-the-pay-wall article).

Looking ahead, Auburn opens as a big favorite against South Carolina. The game kicks off at 6:30pm CDT and will be on the SEC Network.

The Head Ball Coach spoke about Auburn and South Carolina's failure to beat the Tigers since their entry into the SEC.

Meanwhile, South Carolina may be without two key defenders for the Auburn game, including an essential defensive lineman.

In the polls, the Tigers are working their way back up even during the off week due to the losses by Baylor and Notre Dame. Auburn moves to #6 and #5 in the Coaches' and AP Poll respectively.

In Tigers in the NFL news, Tre Mason seems to be locking in on the starting RB job for the Rams. Tre scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday and looked good running the football up until he almost fumbled the game away on one of his final carries. It's good to see Tre doing well and we wish him the best of luck.

Greg Robinson is also earning praise now that he's playing on the Rams' offensive line at Guard. These tweets in particular should look familiar to Auburn fans:
