The Tigers scrimmaged Saturday afternoon. The Tigers shot well, according to head coach Bruce Pearl, but he's still looking for some toughness.
The Orange team took Game 3 of the Fall World Series for Auburn. Still no word on the head baseball coach, though. Believe me, we'll report something as soon as we know it.
The Tigers dropped a match this weekend at South Carolina, but bounced back to handle #17 Texas A&M 2-0 Sunday afternoon.
The ladies opened up the Fall Season with a double-header against North Georgia and they picked up right where they left off with the usual suspects making great plays and hitting long balls. Hopefully the 2015/16 Tigers make it back to Oklahoma City. They're definitely on their way.
True freshman Kerryon Johnson is Auburn's "Wildcat QB" and AL.com has some words on the subject. WarRoom Eagle wrote some words on the subject of Auburn using the Wildcat against San Jose State that I highly recommend you check out if you haven't already.
Auburn needs playmakers. Johnson could very well be one (he's shown some great moves). Ricardo Louis is someone the Tigers are hoping gets things going to take that role, though. The senior wide receiver leads the team in receiving yards and is 5th in rushing yards. Peyton Barber has been the workhorse, but Louis has the tools in all facets of the game.
They need playmakers, too. On both sides of the ball. The defense in particular needs to find a big spark as they're in the bottom 10 of a number of categories in the NCAA.
Who's going to start at quarterback for Auburn against Kentucky? Well, we don't know, yet. I have a feeling we'll know during Gus' Tuesday press conference, but that's just a guess on my part. That's when Gus let us know Sean White was starting a few weeks back.
On the defensive side of the ball Tre Williams and Tim Irvin will both be available for Kentucky. No word on TJ Davis just yet.
Jonathan Wallace wants to be a graduate assistant at Auburn once his playing career is done, and I for one am more than happy to keep a great Auburn man around for another year or two to help out with the team.
Aside from the Auburn beat guys (whom I have a lot of respect for), I stay away from AL.com. This horrible article on Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder fighting Duke Williams is a great example of why I stay away from that horrible site.
