Ole Miss is a trap game for us IMO

Yep. They always wore down as they game went along.  As long as we don't get away from our Identity we will be good. Run the ball and control tempo & the line. Don't get into an air raid match with them.

Isn't that the very reason why Auburn fans are so excited about the Chip Lindsey hire? Because we will get away from our identity and have much more of an air raid passing attack and not be so predictable on offense?

I don't think any of us are hoping we get away from our identity. I still want us to be dominate in the run game. I think he will bring some more balance, and get us to a point where we can throw when we want to, as opposed to when we have to. But, by no means do I want us to lose our identity as a run first team. That's just me.

Umm no. That is one of the reasons why Chip Lindsey was explicitly hired. He understands AU identity is to be a physical team, who wants to run at will. He is here to bring more balance on the offensive end.

Hugh Freeze is at great at manufacturing a passing game as Gus is a running game.

Wait.  Did you just complement Gus Malzahn?  I have screenshot this, and plan on taking it to be framed.  :bananadance:

I give compliments when the man deserves it. He is as bad at developing a high school qb as he is great at developing a great running game.

The big contrast I'm hoping for is perhaps the ability to pass when the defense is daring us too. I would surmise, many would be happy with the results of us running the ball 80% of the time if the opposing team is willing to leave just 6-7 players in the box. The issue is, we need something for when there are 8-9 in the box. Being able to manufacture completions in obvious passing advantage situations has been a limitation for us the past couple years.

passing on first down and when we go "fast" will be the biggest change I imagine. It will be such a welcome sight to run different plays in those situations. Everyone knew what was coming which included the opposing defenses.

Other than the Tamu game Ole Miss struggled mightily with Patterson at qb.  They should be better with a whole offseason to practice but they were bad the last 3 games of the season.  I see Miss State potential but Fitzgerald is a turnover machine

^As dangerous as Fitz is, I don't really think the Cowbells have a lot else going for them besides that...well, and an as-usual cake OOC schedule.

Their offense is no joke. They are going to give fits to every sec team they play this year and could play spoiler even if their D cannot stop anyone.

This is the main reason why we'll beat Ole Miss. Sure they can put up points but their defense is not good. Patterson will likely be a good QB but he'll be pressed to put up points b/c of their lack of defense and be susceptible to 1-2 INTs a game. Ole Miss doesn't worry me.

Ole Miss should blend in our schedule......of trap games. They don't stand out to me for my $.02. What does stand out to me more than anything is the difference (on paper) between the preparedness of this team and teams of the past. Not to mention we should be putting on the field something we haven't really seen since tubbervile: defense. War eagle.

Personally I think both the Mississippi's are trap games.  Last year was a rebuilding season for state and Nick Fitzgerald looks like a solid QB and Ole Miss QB and recievers should make for a tough game.

I think Miss St. is def. a bigger threat to us than Ole Miss. I just don't think Ole Miss will not be able to stop many teams on defense.

Guys I think a lot of yall are missing the point of trap games. They are the games everyone EXPECTS US TOO WIN! That is why they are a trap game! lol. It is not going to be a more obvious game like arky on the road with a really good qb.

As I look over our schedule, any one of those teams could be a trap game if we're not ready to play. Ole Miss, Miss. State, Missouri even Georgia Southern.

That is a nice little piece of info there. Not only that, but they seem to get emotionally "up" for their match up with UAT every year. Hopefully that wears them out mentally as well.

All I'm saying is that if we take Georgia Southern lightly, they have a running game that will make you warn out long before the end of the 3rd quarter is over.

To be fair I think Gus has Bielemas' number. Bret's only win against Gus was in 2015 in Fayetteville against a bad Auburn team and it took him four OT's to do it.
