I apologize in advance for rehashing some bad memories.
The year is 2008. Tommy Tuberville enters his tenth season as head coach for the Auburn Tigers and brings OG Jason Bosley and DL Sen’Derrick Marks along with him to SEC Media Days. Both linemen entered the 2008 season under new leadership. Tony Franklin was hired to fix the offense’s problems from 2007 and Paul Rhoads entered his first (and last) season as defensive coordinator before leaving to become the head coach for Iowa State.
The AP poll had Auburn ranked at number 10 in the preseason poll and Sen’Derrick Marks was named to the Walter Camp Award watchlist, Bronko Nagurski Trophy watchlist, Outland Trophy watchlist, and All-SEC 1st Team list while Bosley was named to the Dave Rimington Trophy watchlist.
