Auburn Football All-Access Podcast, Episode 181, October 25, 2018

It certainly seemed that going on the road to Oxford, MS last Saturday was the right medicine for an Auburn team, and head coach, Gus Malzahn who were under considerable fire after playing so poorly in a loss to the Tennessee Vols. Auburn played superb defensively, largely shutting down the explosive Rebels offense, and the Tigers even managed to break 250 yards in rushing, which had been elusive all season.

At the same time, the good will gained can evaporate quickly if the losing returns against first year head coach Jimbo Fisher and his Texas A&M Aggies who will visit Jordan-Hare stadium on November 3rd.

Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean for the discussion as where Coach Malzahn stands, and the opportunity for the Tigers heading into a very challenging Amen Corner.

Coach Gus Malzahn on Perilously Thin Ice

Objectively, sixth year Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn has gotten himself in an extremely treacherous position in terms of his job security going forward. While that may sound odd to the casual observer given Malzahn’s agent Jimmy Sexton leveraging an insane $32 million buyout last December, the ardent support of both the Auburn fan base and power brokers is evaporating.

Against this backdrop of desperation, Auburn heads to Oxford to take on an Ole Miss team that can light up the scoreboard, yet struggle to stop almost any offense. The outcome could make the coming bye week seem like the longest two weeks in memory with the Texas A&M Aggies coming to Jordan-Hare on November 3rd.

For all realistic purposes for the Auburn Tigers, the 2018 season’s hopes to contend for the SEC well into November went up in smoke in a miserable performance in Starkville last Saturday night, as the Tigers lost 23-9.

The heat level on head coach Gus Malzahn, including from his own fan base, is palpable, as almost no noticeable improvement has occurred with the offense now six games into the season. Showing some progress, and delivering a win over first year VOLS head coach Jeremy Pruitt can be fairly called desperately needed.

Auburn looks to find offense on the road in StarkVegas

Although the Auburn Tigers sit in the enviable position of a lofty 8th national ranking despite the loss to LSU, there is still a frustrating vibe among Auburn fans because of an offense that is largely anemic five games in. And conventional wisdom is that going on the road for a night game with a stout Mississippi State defense, with cowbells clanging, would not be the Rx for a cure on offense.

Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean as they break down this Auburn team, and what it will take to deliver what would be State’s third consecutive loss, and a big win which could help the Tigers get things rolling offensively.
