January 4, 2018

NCAA Football: Alabama at Auburn Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday was a gigantic news day on the Plains, as we basked in the resurgent glory of Auburn basketball, we saw the shifting sands of rosters and coaching staffs take shape as decisions about the future were made.

Just before Auburn tipped off against Tennessee on January 2nd, we got the first news of our early entrants to the NFL Draft.

With the comparisons to Le’Veon Bell, Kerryon Johnson may have himself a few suitors when he starts meeting with teams.

Then yesterday, the floodgates opened with one...


...another moving on to the NFL.

That’s four early entries to this year’s draft, which may cause some Auburn fans concern. However, there’s one good way to look at our juniors jumping to the pros.

Then, after all was said and done, we got a new face on the Plains as Gus Malzahn filled out his defensive staff with the newly-legal tenth assistant coach.

Woodson should be a nice addition as the Tigers look for more takeaways in 2018.

And as we continue to look ahead to 2018, the Tigers will be a popular pick to start the year in the top ten, mainly due to the returning talent we’ve got (sans offensive line and running back).

Let’s make our time in the top ten a constant as opposed to a fleeting moment of glory. War Eagle!
