Ellis Johnson: Auburn defense has more 'good, solid SEC players' than his other

... first-year units.

(Mods, entire subject line would not fit.)

Ellis Johnson: Auburn defense has more 'good, solid SEC players' than his other first-year units

Johnson had ten defensive players, off of his 2008 defense at South Carolina, eventually drafted into the NFL ... including a first rounder or two and including a fair number of future All-SEC defenders.

Is Auburn that loaded on defense this coming season? If so, Auburn might make waves under EJ if they have any solid journeymen blue-collar guys mixed in and if their offense can put any points on the board.

I think Auburn actually has some talent on that team. I think they could end up being a lot like the 2012 OM team

Let it go. New coach talking to the most insecure fanbase in the country. Just coachspeak.

AU's ceiling is 6-7 wins, OM's is higher than that.

I still laugh at the irony of E. Johnson at Auburn. Undoubtedly he is good at what he does but I remember AU fans being on Johnson's arse for complaining about AU's hurry up offense a couple of years ago.

By all means, don't be fooled by the look of the defenses that Auburn fielded under the Gene Chizik regime. There is, no doubt, some talent on that side of the ball. To this point they have just been soft, undisciplined, poorly prepared, and terribly coached. I expect there to be upgrades at every position outside of defensive end.

Meh, just typical bs from ellis...

From last year:

"Q: What can Southern Miss fans expect from this team?

A:Any team I put on the field I want to play hard, physical and smart. I believe this team is going to play that way too, but we need to get more consistent. We’ve got the potential to be a big-play team on both offense and defense."

New coach says nice thing about current team while giving a gentle slap to all former employers film at 11.

This is coach speak, no more...no less. Auburn has some talent on defense, sure. This is not a reflection on that talent.

Let it go. There's nothing else to talk about except baseball and projections of the upcoming season. Just off-season.

He is the sole reason MSU made a bowl game in 07. Bad head coach but decent defensive coordinator

That's coach speak.

I bet he said shite about Southern Miss before they went 0-12.


Last year's Auburn team was the practice National Champion.

Roger that.

Passing teams absolutely blistered us 9 out of 10 times under EJ. I liked him, but I was not upset to see him go. Every time we faced Arkansas with him at the helm I just cringed and got sloppy drunk before the games.

If Brad Lawing had not been his DLine coach, I seriously doubt if EJ would have been as successful as he was while here.
