Chizik Says Youth To Blame For Auburn’s Woes

Before the season, we took a bit of a beating from Auburn fans for suggesting that the Tigers would have their fair share of troubles this year with so many young, inexperienced players having to fill the roles of departed veterans.

We haven’t been hearing much from Tiger fans the past few weeks.

That’s probably because in its last five games, Auburn has been hammered by Arkansas, LSU and Georgia by a combined score of 128-31.  Gene Chizik says he knows what the problem is — young, inexperienced players:


“Last year when things didn’t seemingly look like they were going very well, you had a lot of guys who had been through a lot of peaks and valleys during their careers.  You have experience with guys who have been in the valley — and they know how to get back up to the peak.  We need more leadership.”


With Samford and Alabama left to play, it’s likely the Tigers will finish 7-5 on the season and unranked.  So much for all the preseason talk of being disrespected by the media.  (And by this site.)

Starting a majority of freshmen and sophomores is a recipe for disaster in the SEC.  Regardless of the logo on the helmet or the titles won in prior seasons.
