MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - In 2010 – the Auburn Tigers rose to the top of the college football ranks - winning their second national championship in school history.
However, since then, the program has been on a down slide, and after former head coach Gene Chizik was fired following the 2012 season - the tigers have brought in Gus Malzahn to turn it around. Right now – Malzahn is focused on week one against Washington State.
“We’re pretty much all full forced into Washington State, we’ll start getting our routine, our weekly routine and we have some extra time to prepare and I think that’s very good having a starting QB that didn’t go through Spring, we need that extra time.”
That starting QB is Nick Marshall, a transfer that Malzahn believes will be the playmaker for success this fall – beginning next weekend against the cougars.
“They do a little bit of everything, you’ve got to be prepared for the different fronts, they bring a lot of pressures and you’ve got to be prepared for it.”
Even with the season just around the corner – Malzahn is still thinking ahead.
“We’re building this thing, our goal is to get better every practice and each game and if you’ve got to play young guys early, and they may not be completely ready, that’s good for the long term, so we just need people to step up and it’s always good to see who can do it.”
