The Auburn Tigers are heading into spring marking a new era for Auburn football. Gus Malzahn has returned to the Plains to guide the Tigers back to championships, but a lot of work has to get done this spring before this team can be competitive.
Last year Auburn had its worst season since 1980, finishing 3-9 overall and winless in the SEC. It was a rough year for the Tigers, but for all the bad that came there was some good. This spring there are some obvious strengths and weaknesses that will be on display.
The Tigers will return a number of experienced players to the fold, and a lot of talent that has yet to be developed. How this staff responds will be key, but the hope out of Auburn is that the proof is in the past.
Here is a snapshot of the good and bad for the Tigers heading into spring.
