Spring practice is HERE and I am DYING to read, write, and talk Auburn football.
That being said, I am going to try and avoid repeating the same stuff you have undoubtedly read from our beat reporters. Those guys get paid to give you their opinions, and those opinions are already all over the web. If I say the same thing, why would you want to come on the blog and read what I have to say? I want you coming here to read a differing opinion.
Ok ok ok. So a lot of it WILL be similar. After all, it's easy to see some of the glaring holes and huge story lines. It's easy to get SUPER HOPPED UP ON JEREMY JOHNSON.
K. Well, I'm getting ahead of myself....
Let's talk offense, and before I get started...let's cherry pick what you have already read about. Try and read past a lot of the sarcasm in some of these bullets.
CAP (SEC-leading rusher) is gone. Auburn will have to decide between Roc Thomas and Jovon Robinson.
Coates is gone. Duke returned. Whoop. Whoop.
Jeremy Johnson is a better QB than Marshall.
Golson is going to slide over to center and replace Rimington Award winner, Reese Dismukes.
I have to admit, the flavor I get from all of the articles I have read is that Auburn is upgrading errrwhere and that the offense will be bigger and better than ever.
But Auburn losses almost all of its offensive production and *perhaps* the most valuable interior lineman in the modern era. It also losses guys like Uzomah and Fulse, who provided stability at their position for 4 years. Toss in a bonus early departure in Pat Miller and you have an offense that losses more men than it returns.
Let's talk it out. Click the link. Read. Comment.
