The Auburn Tigers kicked off their 2016 football season with their annual Spring A-Day game last weekend on April 9, 2016. The Tigers had a disappointing 2015 season with seven wins and six losses! They are entering this upcoming football season with the hopes of coming out with at least eight to nine wins.
From the past season, the Tigers have had difficulties offensively based on there previous quarterback. The fans want to see head Coach Gus Malzahn play a true spread quarterback in hopes to benefit offensively this season. Their new recruit John Franklin might be the quarterback they need to improve offensively. JUCO All-American, passed for 733 yards (64-110) and seven scores and rushed for 451 yards and nine TD at East Mississippi Community College, carrying the Lions to a number three national ranking and the MACLC North title. We shall see what this will produce for the Tigers this college football season.
