Something to consider... Gus Malzahn is now 20-5 as a HFC at Auburn, the same record held by Steve Spurrier during his first 25 games at UF. Both were considered offensive guru's. Malzahn now has three 14-pt losses or worse (LSU, MSU and UGA). Spurrier had five 15-pt losses or worse during his first 25 games, playing with better overall talent against a lesser strength of schedule. Eventually, Spurrier realized a better defense was needed to win a MNC and his offense wasn't going to be enough. I'm quite sure Malzahn realizes this at this point and will make the needed changes. We should g
I expected the game might be close at halftime with Auburn pulling away during the second-half, via their run-offense. With basically 3 weeks to prepare for the Auburn defense, I thought we would see some new wrinkles by the Gamecock offense but I did not expect Steve Spurrier to give his team every possible chance to make it a ball game.

The defense played very well except for 2 big plays allowed during the game as the front-7 had a solid game against the Spartans. The good news is that Auburn came out of the game without any major injuries with 12 days to prepare for their first road game of the season. Auburn's front-7 played much better this week and it was good to see Kris Frost rebound from a shaky performan
I found the following data interesting... 1980-1989: During the decade before Steve Spurrier arrived at Florida, SEC teams averaged 183.6 yards rushing per game with 38% of the teams averaging over 200-yards rushing for the season. 1990-1992: During the first 3 years with Spurrier at Florida, rushing averages dipped to 175.6 yards per game with 34.3% of the SEC teams averaging over 200-yards rushing per game during the season. 1993-1995: Six years into the Spurrier era at UF and SEC teams are averaging 162.9 yards rushing per game with only 13.9% of the teams averaging over 200-yards rus
