It’s Monday morning and you've got a whole lot of Auburn to hate. And a job. You may have a job, too. So you don't have a lot of time for a lot of jibber jabber. Let's get right to what’s making news in Bulldog Nation this morning.
Seth Emerson makes the point that Saturday’s offensive performance may have been less a result of where Jim Chaney called plays from, and more a sign of a better constructed game plan.
The Senator shares many thoughts with Dave, and I agree with both that Malkom Parrish is getting sneaky good at defending the goal line fade against bigger receivers. Sadly, that's what comes of getting picked on repeatedly just because of the size you're listed at in the game program. Gotta get those reps.
Auburn has vaulted into the top ten this year thanks to an explosive rushing attack, led by the SEC’s top ground gainer, Kamryn Pettway. But with Pettway potentially hobbled by a non-contact injury, the Plainsmen may need to go to their deep bench of tailbacks against the ‘'Dawgs.
The Tigers may have sophomore QB Sean White back for Saturday, good news for them as Gus Malzahn’s attack struggled against Vandy without him. That being said, expect the Bulldog defense to check in on White’s apparently gimpy shoulder at every available opportunity.
GlimmerTwinDawg told you yesterday about the Bulldog golf team contending in Hawai’i. It turns out that they didn't see home the victory, falling to a surging Clemson squad on Sunday. Still a strong tournament in my book. Until later...
