Link sAUsage: Bowl Prep Gears Up

December 18, 2017

NCAA Football: Auburn at Missouri Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

We’re a week away from Christmas, and so we’re all starting to really think about the gifts that’ll be in our stockings and under the tree at all of our orange and blue abodes. I know on my list I’ve got a fantastic offensive line for 2018, a ton of touchdowns as stocking stuffers, and a dominating win over UCF on New Year’s Day as the big ticket item this holiday season.

Last night, our coordinators met with the media ahead of that bowl game, and so head off to your final few days in the office with the words from Kevin Steele and Chip Lindsey.

Since we’ll lose the majority of our offensive line that turned out to be very good this season, we’ll need to find some dudes to replace the studs we had up front. That process has already begun.

Customarily at this time of year, there are scrimmages done with a ton of the younger players, and we usually see guys emerge before the bowl that will make a big impact next season. It’s no different here in 2017.

We’ll certainly be excited to see exactly which guys make that impact next year, and we may even get a glimpse in 2018 when the Tigers suit up against the Knights in Atlanta.

In the NFL yesterday, this is too good not to share. Cam Newton and the Panthers beat the Packer 31-24, and Cam was dialed in physically and mentally, toying with the Green Bay defense all day long.

And back in the college ranks, the first early signing period comes this week from Wednesday to Friday, but it’s Monday that’ll be making the adjustment to college life (sorry, awful).

And finally today, Auburn basketball’s got the best record in the SEC at 9-1 after beating Middle Tennessee 76-70 on Saturday evening. Have a couple of takeaways from the win and what it means for the Tigers going forward. They’ll take on Murray State tomorrow evening at home.

War Eagle!
