"Joey Gatewood is the closest thing to Cam Newton physically that I've seen. He can run. He can throw. He's a big-time athlete." - on the SEC Network.
Well, if Gatewood doesn't abandon ship gus can always put him into a game that starts bogging down. Unfortunately, history also suggests that when the pressures on and panic sets in the gus bus is just as likely to start rotating QBs every series.
I agree that Auburn has always been a Jeckle and Hyde kind of team.
I'm very interested in seeing how this season turns out for them. Malzahn has painted himself in a corner, in the fact, that if the team struggles offensively, he has no one to blame. While he technically has an OC, we all know that he has stated and reiterated that he is calling the shots on offense.
Will he be able to flow and call the game and make the offense the speed demon potent scoring machines he has developed in the past, or will this effort falter because the defenses have caught up to the RPO? Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
