The spread is back at Auburn.
That’s right. Another spring, another new offense.
This time, it’s Gus Malzahn bringing his version of the spread to the Plains. He’s not real interested in what they’ve done before at Auburn, how miserably the spread failed last season at Auburn or how his offense might be perceived around the SEC.
It’s worked everywhere Malzahn has been, and that’s good enough for him.
“Nowadays, there are so many versions of what people call the spread,” Malzahn said. “We’re going to have a physical, hard-nosed attitude, and that’s the No. 1 thing we want to do. You look back at the history of Auburn, and that’s kind of been their trademark. We’ll focus on running the ball downhill and be a run/play-action pass team. That’s a little bit different than what they did here last year.
