High times in the prettiest little village

All smiles around Auburn and greater Lee County these days.

Making his way through Auburn’s campus every day, Gabe Wright can see a difference in the faces of everyone he meets.
And with each win the seventh-ranked Tigers register, the memories of last season’s misery seem to fade farther and farther into the ether.

“The teachers’ attitudes are better, the bus drivers’ attitudes are better — I guess what I’m trying to get at is that everybody’s attitude is better,” the Auburn junior defensive tackle said Tuesday. “There’s not much bad that can come from winning. It’s a new day here.”
And this, from another Georgia product incidentally.
“We know the implications. We know what’s at stake and how important this game is,” Tigers junior tight end C.J. Uzomah said. “That’s another part of the reason we’re focusing on this game (against Georgia) as hard as we are.”
Beating King Saban will undoubtedly be Malzahn's greatest challenge this season. But keeping everyone focused on this lowly, poor Bulldogs squad could end up being a very close second.
