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
- 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
- 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.
