Usually, when a team goes into a new season without its top two receiving options and a two-year starter at quarterback from the year before, there’s reason to panic when it comes to the passing game.
Going into the 2019 football season, one of the strengths of Coach Gus Malzahn’s team should be the offensive line, but there are also reasons for concern.
Tight ends usually aren’t a huge part of Gus Malzahn’s offense — an Auburn tight end hasn’t had over 200 receiving yards since Philip Lutzenkirchen reeled in 238 in 2011.
Death, taxes and Auburn having a 1,000-yard rusher. Under Gus Malzahn, the Auburn offense has been known for one thing: running the football. The streak, the longest in the SEC, began in 2009 with 1,362 yards on the ground from Ben Tate.

Although the baseball Tigers received bad news this week when they learned that pitcher Davis Daniel won’t be back this season and will need Tommy John surgery, the potential is still there for this group to make a run in postseason.
It's notoriously difficult (and ill-advised) to draw many, if any, definite conclusions from any A-Day game, including Auburn's last Saturday, which amounted to little more than a tightly controlled scrimmage featuring a pared-back playbook and no contact on the quarterbacks.
Auburn's Seth Williams proved why he's the Tigers' top returning wideout last Saturday, with an impressive performance that earned him offensive MVP honors in the A-Day game.
Years from now when remembering the 2018-19 Auburn basketball Tigers and their run all the way to the Final Four, the three-point shooting, the intensity on defense, an SEC Tournament title and the officiating in the loss to Virginia at the end of the national semi-finals game will stand out…

If you were an Auburn basketball fan during the Tony Barbee era (AKA the Auburn basketball Dark Age), then you truly know how low this program can stoop. To fully understand the heights the program has reached now, one must look at the miserable history that came before.
On four previous trips to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Sweet 16 round, the Auburn Tigers were only able to break through into the Elite Eight one time. That was Coach Sonny Smith’s team that got hot in the 1986 tournament and came close to finishing its season at the Final Four.

For the most part, Auburn’s offensive line struggled in 2018. There’s not much of an argument against that. Maybe it was due to star running back Kerryon Johnson leaving for the NFL but, for most of the season, the unit was unable to create holes for running backs JaTarvious Whitlow and Kam Martin.
The Auburn gymnastics team will get the chance this weekend to pull off an elusive feat for the first time in program history — winning an SEC championship.
