Football season is back, and so is the Auburn Sports Network's production of Tiger Talk live from Baumhower's Victory Grille.
Auburn head coach Hugh Freeze joined the early part of the show this week to give an update on the state of the team and answer questions from fans.
"There's no question that the love of Auburn football from these people is second-to-none," Freeze said. "That's been clear to me ever since I've been here. I've thought that but now I know it."
The voice of the Auburn Tigers Andy Burcham asked Freeze how practice has been this week.
"It's time to play," Freeze said. "Everybody's ready. I know the Bible says be anxious for nothing but it's hard for me this time of year, truthfully, not to be anxious. You just want to find out who we are and how we're going to respond when things go well when things go bad."
The first question asked to Freeze was "I like Ricky Bobby fast offense. Are we going to see some of that from you?"
"If you don't there's a problem," Freeze answered. "We plan to go fast. When I was at Ole Miss, we were probably the fastest team in the country, and it worked as far as scoring a bunch of points, but it probably hurt us defensively towards the last part of my tenure there. So when I went to Liberty I still went fast, but I was very strategic on when I did that."
Freeze has called the plays throughout his entire career but has handed the keys to offensive coordinator Phillip Montgomery.
"It's been quite a challenge," Freeze said on the adjustment. "I told Monty I need help doing it. I don't know what it looks like. It's going to be a combination. But he's really helped me a lot and has freed me up to recruit more."
Freeze and company as well as the Auburn Family do not have much longer to wait before having the opportunity to see Auburn in action.
The Tigers open up the season at home against the UMass Minutemen inside Jordan-Hare Stadium tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. CT. The game will be televised by ESPN.
