Can Auburn Move On?

Todd CarltonContributor IOctober 12, 2009

It's Monday morning in Auburn, AL, and it's raining.  As a matter of fact it's the perfect metaphor for what happened Saturday at the hands of the Arkansas Razorbacks.  Antonio Coleman has requested a meeting with Coach Gene Chizik because he is concerned about the direction of the defense.  Whoa!  What a difference a week makes!

This time last week the Auburn faithful were 5-0 and staring down a 7-0, top 10 meeting in Baton Rouge.  Now, Auburn is looking around asking, "What just happened?"

Auburn was beat in every aspect of the game Saturday.  The scary part for Auburn fans is that it took two full quarters before you saw an Auburn team that looked like they actually wanted to be there!  Stupid penalties, terrible execution, dead legs, and worst of all no enthusiasm. 

So where does Auburn go from here?  Kentucky should get Auburn bowl eligible, LSU is coming together and looking mighty tough, Ole Miss the following week will no doubt be looking over the Arky films and realize that Auburn refuses to cover crossing routes, Furman makes seven wins, Georgia looks very beatable but the scary thing with Georgia is that they will probably have four losses and Richt will be looking to save his job, Alabama is just in a different league right now. 

So if my math is right, that makes for a 7-5 with a possible win over Georgia making it 8-4...which is where most had Auburn at the beginning of the season.
