The beginning of fall practice is just around the corner, and the flow of information off the plains will increase dramatically when it does. While fans wait for information on the progress of their favorite players, there are some facts that can be contemplated.

D’Antoine Hood has transferred to Alabama State. Auburn fans appreciated his contribution while a member of the team and wish him well. He accumulated 13 solo tackles and played in 22 games while at Auburn. He was expected to see a decreasing role in 2010 as more competition developed at his position.

Auburn plays five new opponents in 2010. This brings up some interesting facts about the schedule. How will these changes affect the 2010 football season?

All of these are 2009 seasonal statistics per game.
