Now onto the News, Rumors, and Commentary…

“Auburn football may have packages designed for Robby Ashford. As a true freshman, it’s highly unlikely that Holden Geriner sees the field this season, but Robby Ashford is a different story. Although Ashford likely won’t win the starting job in 2022, Harsin has hinted several times that there may be special packages designed to utilize the transfer’s ability to move on his feet, per Auburn Undercover: It’s been repeated a few times this offseason by Harsin, but even if Ashford doesn’t win the starting job for the season opener against Mercer, he could still be a part of Auburn’s offense — with packages on the goal-line, short-yardage situations, trick plays and more. With an MVP performance in the Tigers’ spring A-Day game, it’s clear that Ashford has talent, and it’s possible it will be utilized on the field this fall.”

“November 5 – Mississippi State (TBD): After what happened last year, this has to be a circled game for the defense. September 17 – PENN STATE (2:30 PM CST): Revenge game from last year, I wish this was a nighttime affair, but they’ll get to see Jordan-Hare Stadium at likely the lynchpin point of the season. I said last year that if Harsin could break that streak, then it was a good year. You just need something to break through to win a game like that.”

“”That’s why I go to Auburn so much,” Blocton said. “I feel like Auburn has a lot of love for me.” Blocton is currently planning a return to Auburn for the Mercer game Sept. “Since I got older, Auburn has really been like a team that I watch a lot,” Blocton said. “It was amazing,” Blocton said.”
