Right. Can't say for sure unless the coverage is known. If they were in an underneath zone, then jumping the short route is the correct assignment. Of course, in that circumstance, he should probably try to get a bump on the outside guy to slow him down so the s...

One of the most satisfying aspects of last season was the beat down of Auburn. It wasn't just the score. The Tigers seemingly took their will to play. Man, I love thinking about that game.
I guess we should never underestimate Auburn at home, but, yes, I would love to pummel them at Jordan-Hare.
