"Newton’s performance on the field in his only season as Auburn’s starting quarterback was exemplary. He completed 185 of 280 passes (66.1 percent) for 2,854 yards, 30 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He balanced his game with unsurpassed scrambling ability and chewed up 1,473 yards on the ground on 264 carries. His 20 rushing touchdowns emphasized his importance in the red zone, too. How Chizik and Malzahn intend to replace that production — Newton averaged 309 yards of total offense a game — is the team’s biggest mystery."

Hard to replace that kind of efficiency. But we're still ranked in the top 20. We'll see.

SC almost beat you in regular season before Newton had really found his stride. Were it not for back to back 4th quarter fumbles by Garcia, they would have. Alabama almost beat you, UNC came within 6 points without any starters...heck, even the Les Miles 2010 crazy train came within a touchdown.

Auburn will be third in the SEC West and not a contender this year. You just can't fill a Can Newton sized hole and without him you would have been at least a 3 conference loss team last year.

All chances of a repeat went out the window when both Newton and Nick Fairley announced they were going for the draft. We'll see what we got.

It should be an interesting year. I think SC may repeat in the east but I wouldn't give us odds over the best Sec west team. The East was pretty pitiful last year...

Some idiot bet me 200 dollars that Auburn would win 10 games this season.

He tried to change his wins after that shit fest against Utah State.

Easy money.

Also someone better tell Bates to quit trying to rock the hit stick and just tackle someone. Terrible.

I guarandamntee he used to bang Lil Jon all day as a kid.

Ok Auburn does have talent, but they lack experience.

And whoever the defensive coordinator is needs to be fired.....immediately.

Auburn's defense was terrible this year, and the the only reason they didn't lose was because of Cam Newton.

Auburn will not be able to rely solely on their offense this year.

Auburn's best player might be the kicker....3 kicks out the endzone, impressive.

Close game. Came down to inches and seconds. That Dan Mullen chose to run the ball vs try to pass and wring 2 plays out of those 7 seconds is questionable in hindsight, 20/20, etc

Miss State impressed overall. They strike me as better than they have been in quite a few years. Too bad they have to deal with Alabama, LSU, and Arkansas year in and year out.

I don't get it.....Vick Ballard (Miss. State RB) jumps 8 feet in the air towards the endzone, and Dan Mullen doesn't give it to him for the last play?

Relf should have stretched out instead of tucking it. He would have had it if he did.

Poor play call if you ask me.

I have to say though, as much as I dislike Auburn, that team has heart, unlike some of their fairweather fans.

Time to talk some more shit about Auburn.

FAU, possibly the worst team in the FBS.

Averaged 6 first downs a game

Against Auburn? 20

Didn't score a td the first 3 games?

Scored 1 against Auburn

Averaged 90 yards a game

Against Auburn? 307

Auburn Offense was booming like it usually does.

Trotter needs go and Kiehl needs to start getting playing time.

FAU only allowed 315 yards? I would be pissed if I was an Auburn fan.

Plus Garcia has regressed to the Pop Warner levels.

He threw 4 interceptions the week before against Vandy. Vandy. Unfortunately Shaw is NOT ready either, so there is no magic bullet to fix this for SC

Alabama is a loss.

Georgia is a toss up.

Also depends on who your bowl team will be.


Should be a victory for every other game.

Better hope Kiehl learns how to throw the ball better in the offseason. He could be something special.

If not, going to be another tough year for Auburn.

Bowl game against Virginia?

Defense should keep you in the game. Offense might take you out the game.

So far so good. Only one loss and it was to the top ranked team when we had an untested qb.
