Auburn Football All-Access Podcast, Episode 115, July 27, 2016

As the August 3rd start of 2016 Fall Camp approaches next week for Auburn head football Coach Gus Malzahn, there are no shortage of issues that are thick in the summer air in the minds of Auburn fans.  Cohosts Coach John Ray and Doug Dean tackle those areas of importance for Malzahn to make 2016 a memorable season, and they also cover the recruiting front which delivered good news to the Loveliest Village in recent days with the commitment of dual threat QB Tray Bishop and Auburn legacy athlete Stephen Davis, Jr., son of Auburn great RB Stephen Davis.

Coach Ray and Dean also tackle the somewhat stunning development on the rules and player safety front recently to consider eliminating the kickoff in college football.

Pull up a chair and enjoy the lively banter!

There are few football coaching resumes in Alabama that boast the remarkable run of 45 years that retired Troy University head football coach Larry Blakeney can claim, with accolades too numerous to mention.

Coach Blakeney has a distinct Auburn football pedigree as well, having been the first sophomore QB to be named a starter by Coach Ralph “Shug” Jordan, and coached under Pat Dye in some of Auburn’s most successful seasons.

Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean as they pick Coach Blakeney’s formidable football brain on a wide array of subjects from the state of offensive football in Division I today, areas he expects Gus Malzahn to work to solve in 2016, and what tactics he found effective in red zone scoring, an area that Malzahn will look to address in his offensive turnaround.

As August inches to within days, not weeks, Fall Camp brings hugely important questions for Auburn Coach Gus Malzahn on both sides of the ball, particularly on offense.

Coach John Ray and Doug Dean welcome Coach Hunter Adams, who brings to the discussion both in-depth coaching knowledge as well as observation from Auburn Spring practices.  Join the podcast for a fairly high IQ analysis of what will likely be the style of defense and strategy new defensive coordinator Kevin Steele deploys with an impressive, deep roster of defenders.

The show will also break down where defensive coordinators most caused Malzahn’s offense such disruption in 2015, and how the offensive staff can adjust to counter this for greater production in 2016.
