Words of Encouragement

"We had way too much in our playbook."

Those are the words of Offensive Coordinator Tony Franklin, and they are good news for Auburn fans. The biggest temptation for an offensive genius is to make his offense too complicated. That is also a potential downfall of a young starting quarterback, especially one in his first start in conference or on the road (cough! cough!).

Keep in mind that Auburn finest offensive performance to date is still a game where the offense only had about a dozen plays in the playbook. By simplifying the gameplan, Franklin increases our chances of seeing that kind of performance against LSU.
