Task Organization: The Auburn Tigers will be organized using this week's depth chart.


a) Enemy -

Intelligence reports indicate that the Auburn Tigers' opponent for Week 11 is a Southeastern Conference team featuring a young but promising QB, one of the better RBs in the conference, and a troublesome defense. They are in the first year of head coach Kirby Smart's tenure and have struggled to perform well all season long. The enemy will attempt to shut down Auburn's offensive attack on the ground with a good defense and pressure Auburn's banged-up QB and force bad plays in the passing game. Their offensive line has struggled to protect the QB at times this season and has not been effective opening up holes for two excellent running backs in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. They also feature one of the better young tight ends in the nation in Isaac Nauta. They will likely attempt to control the ball and the clock with the ground game while attacking the defense with quick passes as Vandy and Ole Miss did.

b) Friendly -

The Auburn Tigers Football Team take on the Georgia Bulldogs at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Athens, GA at 1530 hours local time, in order to advance the program's goal of reaching the SEC Championship and College Football Post Season.


a) Concept of the Operation.

The football team will play four quarters of fast, physical football against all opponents with each portion of the team performing special duties  assigned to them.

Scheme of Maneuver.

The operation will consist of multiple phases. Phase 1- the planning and preparation phase - begins at the end of the Vanderbilt game and ends with the team departing for the Remain Over Night (RON) site. Phase 2 - the travel phase - begins upon arrival at the RON site and ends with Tiger Walk. Phase 3 - the execution phase - begins upon arrival at the stadium and consists of pre-game warm-ups and game activity. It will end upon completion of the contest. Phase 4 - the recovery phase - begins with post-game locker-room activities and ends upon the team's arrival back at the athletic facility in Auburn.

Offense, the main effort, will conduct fast-paced, minimal communication attacks against the enemy utilizing multiple air and land-based weapons systems. Sean White will lead the unit on the field with quick, accurate passes, good reads of the defense on read-option plays, and effective driving of a fast-paced tempo. Auburn will attempt to use the ground game to control the contest, but just how they will do that is up in the air with the injury to Kamryn Pettway. Kerryon Johnson, Stanton Truitt, and even Chandler Cox will need to do a good bit of work in this game. Georgia's defense is also a bit banged up, but they are still a tough and attacking defense. Sean White is also banged up, but with the injury to Pettway, his passing ability may be needed more in this game than it has been in recent weeks. Protecting the quarterback, keeping control of the ball, limiting negative plays, and preventing further injuries should be the focus of the offense in this game. Through speed of maneuver, simplicity in planning, and security of ball-control, the offense will attack the defense and cross the opponent's goal line as quickly and as often as possible.

Defense, a supporting effort, will employ fast/physical assaults on the opponent's offense. Georgia has two of the better running backs in the SEC on their team, but the offensive line has struggled with opening holes for them to run through this season. Their quarterback is not a threat to keep the ball for serious gains, but he is an effective passer and Georgia has a history of using a freshman QB to torture Auburn. In a home stadium environment, he is likely to get more comfortable and use quick passes over the middle to fellow freshman Isaac Nauta to take advantage of the weaknesses exposed by Ole Miss and Vanderbilt in the last two weeks. Auburn's defensive line should be able to focus on shutting down the running game with the help of the linebackers filling gaps while rushing fast and hard on obvious passing downs and pressuring the young QB into making bad decisions. Through surprise, mass, and economy of force, the defense will prevent the opposing offense from crossing the Auburn goal line through expending of their downs or through creating turnovers.

Special Teams, a supporting effort, will conduct all kicking and return duties. #Legatron will hopefully not be needed for short field goals and is available for trick plays. Through maneuver, simplicity, mass, and economy of force, special teams will attempt to score points when supporting the offensive efforts and prevent opponents from scoring points while supporting defensive efforts.

Fans, a supporting effort, will conduct themselves in a manner befitting proper sportsmanship standards while still loudly cheering on the Auburn Tigers football team and disrupting the opponents' game plan, rhythms, snap counts, etc.
