Good post Brian. As someone who has lived in Alabama for several years now and has sort of adopted Auburn as my "second team," I agree with your assessment. The offense truly is fun to watch, even with a guy like Chris Todd at the helm. It is really amazing to me to see formerly old school teams like Michigan and Auburn switch to these non-pro style offenses.
Speaking to the video you linked, I was at the Iron Bowl in Auburn this past year and half the time I couldn't even tell who had the ball despite my bird's eye seats. Unfortunately, Auburn pretty much threw every gadget play in the playbook at Bama but the Tide eventually figured it out and stuffed 'em afte the first quarter. The Kentucky, Arkansas and LSU games were truly disappointing, but the offense will be better this year. Losing Ben Tate, who was basically a healthy version of Brandon Minor if you ask me, does hurt though. At the end of the day, Auburn's success will ultimately be determined by the improvement of the defense. If they can get back to anywhere near the defensive prowess they had under Tuberville then they might have a shot to compete in the SEC West. War Eagle and Go Blue!
