Monday Musings From The Plains

With SEC Media Days in the rear view mirror, we can officially say football season is here. Auburn football camp begins in less than two weeks. And Gus Malzahn said he’s excited about his fifth team.

That in itself is not surprising but the fact that he compared this bunch to The SEC Championship Team is: “They’re hungry and they’ve got something to prove,” said Gus. “The last time I felt this was 2013. So that’s a good comfort for me.”

The reason for his enthusiasm may be more than just a coach’s preseason optimism. With an experienced roster and the addition of Jarrett Stidham the Tigers have the best depth since Auburn played in the Coliseum for the national championship.
