Auburn Football: Breaking Down the Tigers in 2011

In just three weeks and some change, the #1 Auburn Tigers will face the #2 Oregon Ducks. Everyone knows about this matchup: carrying every hint that it could be a shootout of epic proportions. This season has been a hell of a ride.

Auburn started off ranked #23 by ESPN (some had them unranked, some ranked as high as 10). 

I was at Arkansas State, and I knew this team would be special. But I didn't know how special.

A few months later, here we are. I hate how short a time it took, but I'll address that later. Auburn is 13-0 with a #1 ranking and an impressive list of victories. It is national championship bound. 

But at this time of year - between the season's end and the first bowl game - we find ourselves thinking ahead. No one can predict the future, but I like to think about what could be sometimes. 

This is a look into Auburn's near future.

Writer's Note: If during the player breakdown I don't mention a player, forgive me. It's 4 in the morning. Also, I am mainly including scholarship players/main contributors. This is not to say that the walk-ons, scout team players, and those buried on the depth chart are not important. I believe in team. 

* denotes that a player could leave early for the NFL.
