This is what happens with unreasonable expectations

Granted, the failure of Johnson at quarterback was out of left field, but still. Williams’ descent exposed a thin group of receivers that don’t offer the same home-run threat without the likes of Sammie Coates. From 2013-14, Auburn averaged three completions of 20 or more yards per game. Through four games this season, Auburn has completed a grand total of five such passes, ranking 122nd in FBS.

I find this article very ironic for 2 reason

  1. Do we all remember over the summer how Malzahn told us that he was aiming for 8 plays of 20 yards or more… funny how thats turned out
  2. Wow the media flipped on Auburn FAST.  Auburn came into the season with their heads held high ranked 6th, supposedly competing for the SEC and maybe even a Playoff spot.  Now they find themselves 2-2 with one of those wins coming in overtime against a FCS opponent.  They better forget about winning the west and just focus on winning a conference game.
