LSU Fullback Copeland Says Auburn “Didn’t Want To Hit At All”

LSU fullback JC Copeland has fired a shot toward the Auburn football program that you can bet has fans of the Plainsmen riled up today.  The 280-pound bruiser remembers his Tigers 45-10 win over AU’s Tigers for the hits he didn’t have to dole out:


“The most memorable game I’ve had this year, I’ve got to say, was Auburn, because after the first couple of hits, everybody (on AU’s defense) was just backing up.  They didn’t want to hit at all. … Before I got to them, they just fell down and just laid on the ground.

I actually said, ‘C’mon man, you’re better than that.  C’mon, hit me.  That was like the only game I went home and had no nicks and bruises at all.”


Yikes. 

Makes you wonder if Georgia’s Mark Richt was referring to Auburn’s D when he said pre-SEC title game: “I’ve seen people just start jumping out of the way of this guy, literally.”

One thing you can be sure of is this… you can bet that Gene Chizik will post Copeland’s comments all over Auburn’s football complex in the week running up to next year’s LSU game.

I LOVE MY AUBURN TIGERS, BUT I am afraid that Auburn is in for some hard times......... How long, I do not know.....

No coordinators, recruits switching their commitment from us to our rival......... it looks pretty bad.......

It will take perhaps another three years to get back up to where we normally are with our competition......... The coaching scenario will require changes there too......

Auburn ought to play Tennessee in the Quitters Bowl. Oh, wait, Tennessee's not even bowl eligible.
