I suspect this is really the sound Gus Malzahn makes when he’s doubling down on tweaking Nick Saban:
“We think we can be quite a bit faster,” he said in his pre-spring press conference. “There were times last year [when] we had a lot of new people out there, a lot of moving parts, and as you get more comfortable, the faster you can get.”
If Gus is saying his team will come out of the gate this season more polished than it started 2013, no argument here. The Tigers were a different offense in the SECCG than they were against Washington State. But to pretend there’s some magical higher gear he can move things to from where Auburn finished last season… I ain’t buying it.
Auburn can be better on offense, even with the loss of Tre Mason, if Marshall’s passing skills further develop. But faster? Eh.
