    Team Motto: Commit to the G!
    This year we look to have a very successful season with alot of starters returning on defense and Aaron Murray leading the offense we should have nothing short of a spectacular season. We are gonna have to step it up though and not take weaker opponents lightly like we did last year. We hope to make it back to Atlanta and hopefully to the National Championship game.​
    Offensive PB: Pro style(pass first)​
    Defensive PB: 3-4​
    Offensive question mark: It would have to be the offensive line. Can they open holes for the running back and protect Murray? I hope so. If tey can't we are in for a long year.​
    Defensive question mark: The defensive line. For us to be successful this year our defense will need to step it up and stop the run and get pressure on the QB. It all starts with the defensive linemen and they need to be really good this year.​
    Circled games: Would have to be South Carolina, Auburn and Vandy. They all have new coaches and are looking to hurt someone we are gonna have to play very well this year and not look over anyone to make it to the SEC championship game.​
    Offense
    AaronMurray.JPG Starting QB Aaron Murray
    QB: At quarterback we have junior Aaron Murray starting and Christian Lemay as the backup, junior Hutson Mason red shirted in hopes of getting to play next year or his senior season. Aaron Murray is probably the best quarter back in the SEC at the moment and we hope he can lead us to a national championship year 1.​
    238550111483568815_bFZeZAf8_c.jpg
    HB: At tailback we have two true freshman, starting will be Todd Gurley and his backups will be Keith Marshall and Ken Malcolm.​
    FB: At fullback we have senior Richard Samuel and behind him we have Zander Ogletree and Merritt Hall.​
    WR: At wide receiver we have Taverres King, Malcolm Mitchell, Marlon Brown, Michael Bennett, Rantavious Wotten and Justin Scott Wesley. We have alot of depth at wide receiver and probably the most experienced core in the SEC.​
    TE: At tight end we have Arthur Lynch and Jay Rome, two guys with little experience but we hope they can step it up and hopefully contribute in big ways this season.​
    LT: At left tackle we have Kenarious Gates and Austin Long, two experienced juniors who should be able to open holes and keep the pressure off Murray.​
    LG: At left guard we have Dallas Lee and Mark Beard, Dallas Lee has alot of playing time but Mark Beard has little to none. I hope those guys can step it up this season.​
    C: We are hurting at center. We have one center and that is sophomore David Andrew who is actually very good but we need to add at least one more center to the roster.​
    RG: At right guard we have Chris Burnette and Hunter Long, Burnette has plenty of experience and is a good linemen while Long needs to get some playing time.​
    RT: At right tackle we have Kolton Houston, Watts Dantzler and Zach DeBell. We don't have alot of experience out on the right side of the offensive line but Kolton Houston will have to step it up and I think he will.​
    Defense

    LE: At left defensive end we have some veterans in Abry Jones and Garrison Smith we also have a freshman Sterling Bailey who hasn't had any playing time and probably won't get any until next season after senior Abry Jones is gone. Overall these guys are good and should be able to apply some pressure.​
    RE: At right defensive end we have Cornelius Washington and Ray Drew. Cornelius Washington is the veteran ont he right side of the defensive line and we hope he can apply alot of pressure throughout the season.​
    JohnJenkinsJimHippleUGA-300x299.jpg DT John Jenkins
    DT: At defensive tackle we have THE BIG DOG John Jenkins, Kwame Geathers and Mike Thornton. John Jenkins is the leader of this defensive line and will apply plenty of pressure.​
    hi-res-6713948_display_image.jpg LOLB Alec Ogletree intercepting a pass
    LOLB: At left outside linebacker we have Mike Gilliard, Chaase Vasser and Jordan Jenkins these three are very good and will stop anything you throw at them when they are on their A game.​
    MLB: At middle linebacker we have BEAST #2 Alec Ogletree who is the next best thing to Jarvis Jones.​

    Jarvis Jones recovering a fumble that he forced
    ROLB: At right outside linebacker we have BEAST #1 Jarvis Jones he needs no introduction.​
    CB: At corner back we have Brandon Smith, Sanders Commings and Damian Swann all three are very good and will shut down just about any wide receiver you throw at them.​
    GMcMY.AuSt.70.jpeg
    Bacarri Rambo destroying Driskel
    FS: At free safety we have Bacarri Rambo best safety in the nation. He can do it all, stop the run, sack the QB, cover any wide receiver and he can also lay the big hit on your ass.​
    SS: At strong safety we have Shawn Williams, a very good player and leader. His backups are Conner Norman and Marc Deas.​
    K/P: At kicker we have freshman Marshall Morgan and at puunter we have Colin Barber, both can destroy the ball and kick it miles.​

    This year, Auburn will have to temper their expectations what with playing in the ridiculously overcrowded SEC West and not having the ideal quarterback for Baron's spread option attack, things could get rough. But there's absolutely no reason the Tigers can't make some noise and get to a 10-win season.

    Offensive PB: Spread Option (Are there any other offenses to run?)

    Defensive PB: 4-3

    Offensive question mark: With speed at RB and WR and a solid offensive line, this team's only going to go as far as Kiehl Frazier will take them. He's got decent speed and a decent arm, but "decent" can rapidly turn a season to "shit" pretty fast.

    Defensive question mark: The linebacking corps has some talent but is pretty young and has almost no depth. A good defensive front should mask that, but this group has to grow up fast.


    Circled games: Is Auburn even allowed to put anyone here but Bama?
    Offense

    QB:
    Kiehl Frazier has all the tools to be a successful QB in this offense. It's just that those tools are rusty and in poor condition. If he ups his game, Auburn could surprise some people. If he doesn't, it could be a long season.


    HB: Onterio McCalebb is fast as all get out and is an ideal running back for this system. Unfortunately, teams playing against Coach Baron typically key off on the RB, leaving the QB free, which could be a problem. Look for more designed runs for McCalebb in order to get, arguably the best player on offense the ball.

    FB: Jay Prosch is a solid option as a blocker in this system. Leaves much to be desired as a pass catcher but that's fine.

    WR: A solid group with no obvious playmakers, but that's fine. Our WRs are supposed to move the chains and hang onto the football. Trovon Reed could be a nice deep threat if he becomes more consistent catching the ball.

    TE: Philip Lutzenkirchen, besides having the best name in college football, is an absolute beast at catching the football. Not fast by any means, but a solid blocker as a wing-back and great option to keep the sticks moving.

    T: With a Redshirt sophomore and redshirt freshman as our tackles, Chad Slade and Greg Robinson will need to grow up fast.

    G: At left guard John Sullen is the old man of the OL and a solid starter, but Eric Mack is young and almost as talented as Sullen.

    C: Reese Dismukes has the chance to be something really special. With 86 OVR despite just being a sophomore, he can be good now and great in the future.

    Defense

    DE: Auburn's best player on the entire team is probably Junior LE Corey Lemonier. Don't let the French last name follow you folks, he's beastly and can get after the QB and hold down the run. RE Nosa Eguae is solid as well.

    DT: This group is solid if not overly talented. But there are four guys we can plug in and not see any huge drop off. Jeffrey Whitaker will need to be a rock for this defense to have a chance.

    OLB: ROLB Daron Bates is the unquestioned leader of this LB unit. He'll need to teach up redshirt freshman Kevin Frost at LOLB if these OLB's will be all we need them to be.

    MLB: Jake Holland is going to be the lynchpin of this defense. Not in terms of talent, but health. Holland is solid at 81 OVR, but the dropoff between him and the next MLB is considerable. Coach Baron normally runs a 3-4 but all thought of that was trashed when he saw what he had to work with behind Holland.

    CB: Much like their counterparts on the offensive side, this group is talented from top to bottom with no true star. Big point in their favor is that there is not a senior among them. They can be good this year, but potentially great next year.

    S: Two decent safeties that have talent and youth but will need to play above their grade to give Auburn a chance against some talented teams in the SEC.

    I wasn't going to do one, but then I saw you being a whiny little bitch so I figured I'd put a stop to that nonsense.

    In 2012 the Crimson Tide look to defend their National Championship, but as Defending National Champions, there's a massive target on them throughout the entire country, especially within the SEC. Despite the incredible talent returning, no Trent Richardson and an offense leaning more on AJ McCarron will be the determining factor in this team's success. ​
    Offensive Scheme : Single Back Offense​
    AJ McCarron will charge a Single Back Spread offense down the field nearly every drive, and while there isn't a shortage of targets, there's no 'All-Stars' in the receiving game this early in the season. DeAndrew White and Kevin Norwood lead a deep receiver squad, as role players Kenny Bell and Christion Jones won't see as much playing time, but rotate actively in the slot receiver role. Senior TE Michael Williams anchors the edge of the offensive line, and his talented teammates at Tight End Brian Vogler and Kelly Johnson see the field often despite a low amount of targets in the passing game. The key for these Wide Receivers and Tight Ends is simple, run block. They're here to catch the ball, but with the talented backfield, will be called on to run half of the time. ​
    Junior(RS) Halfback Eddie Lacy will lead the small pack of running backs on the team, backed up by talented True Freshman TJ Yeldon and tiny Dee Hart. All bring a particular running style that will keep defenses off balance, key to success in the running game. Lacy is tough tackle, and Yeldon can truck it with the best of them. Dee Hart, who sees the least amount of time between the three, is fast fast fast. Setting the edge will only amount to a ton of yards for the young Hart. But all the talent in the world is wasted without the success of the Big Uglies up front. Snapping the ball is talented Senior(RS) Barrett Jones, with RG Chance Warmack and LG Arie Kouandjio hanging on his shoulders in the middle. The 'heart' of this offensive line, those three will determine the running lanes, and open up the weak side of the plays for maximum effiency in the run game. For AJ McCarron's protection, RT DJ Fluker and LT Cyrus Kouandjio will take the task of stopping the great defensive ends across the conference to buy their quarterback time in the passing game. ​
    Circled Game of the Season :
    Week Ten : Alabama at LSU​
    Reason : Last season's much publicized matchup lead to a Crimson Tide loss, and the Tigers' chance at a National Championship was snuffed out by the Tide in the Championship game. They'll be out for blood, key to winning the division and trying to repeat as National Champions. ​
    Defensive Scheme : Aggressive 3-4 Defensee​
    The key to the 3-4 this season for Alabama will be the Linebackers. In the middle, All-American Nico Johnson will be the 'quarterback' of the defense, making calls and adjustments on the fly. MLB CJ Mosley will be on his shoulder, also taking on responsibility for when the reigns are handed to him next season. OLB Tana Patrick and Adrian Hubbard are the designated pass rushers off the edge for the scheme, and without incredible speed from either of them, the space provided by the defensive line will be all more important. Big Defensive Tackle Jesse Williams will help, at 6'4", 320 pounds, he demands a double team that should open it up for his OLB counterparts, and the rest of his defensive line. Beside him, Defensive Ends Damion Square(6'3", 286) and Ed Stinson(6'4", 282.) The front seven for the Tide can stack up with the best of them, and should make running a task for the opposition.​
    At safety, Robert Lester is making a push for top safety in the NFL Draft, and his on the field production leans strongly in that goal. He's a large for a free safety, but with Vinnie Sunseri beside him ball hawking, and scooting up to stop the run, he won't have to do it by himself. Behind them is Ha'Sean Clinton Dix, a backup at both FS and SS, who will see time in the Nickel and Quarter sets. Three Juniors will fight for time at Cornerback, Dee Milliner leading the squad to start the season. John Fulton and Deion Belou aren't his equal, but they are both balanced corners with the ability to drop back into the zone as successfully as they can cover man to man. With the abstract blitzing schemes, these defensive backs will have to force turnovers for this defense to get off the field early and often. ​
    Season Prediction :
    12-0 and a bid to the National Championship. This team is so talented that even injuries shouldn't keep them from performing at 100%, and new coach Marty Webb replacing Nick Saban after he wanted another stint in the NFL (Yeah, good luck Tennessee Titans) will be on the hot seat if he's not able to win it all in his first year. ​
