08:24 AM ET 08.31 | Auburn coach Gene Chizik has offered the challenge to pass-catchers not named Emory Blake or Philip Lutzenkirchen. There's receiver Trovon Reed, who gotten stronger since last season, "but he's got to be more productive. He's got to step up to the plate," Chizik said. There's redshirt freshman receiver Sammie Coates, who, Chizik said, has "blazing speed. When he jumps up to get the ball, he can go get it" with a 40-inch vertical leap. But, Chizik said, "he's been very inconsistent in training camp." The mystery doesn't stop at wide receiver. ... Kiehl Frazier will make his first start at quarterback. "We got him valuable experience last year. But he wasn't the guy. You have those question marks."

The Clemson D should make Auburn's O look good.

al.com. Everything a coach or a player says or doesn't say is translated into something.

They can figure things out after Sept. 8th. Before then, keep being inconsistent and disappointing.

QUOTE(#13):

after watching last night vandy might not be the gimme most think. I say 7 wins and when you play 12 games plus thats just not very good. 10 wins should be a minimum in a 12, 13 games season.

You are probably right, but Scar is not nearly the powerhouse they've been hyped to be. IMO they are the most overrated team in CFB.
