Grading The Tigers
DECATUR DAILY Sports Writer Bradley Handwerger grades Auburn's performance in its 37-15 loss to Georgia on Saturday, giving the Tigers a letter grade from A+ to F in four categories.
The offensive line couldn't block. Brandon Cox couldn't pass. Four turnovers. And the running backs couldn't find any room to run. Lackluster performance is cause for concern.
Turnovers by the Auburn offense didn't help the defense, but allowing 446 total yards to Georgia and poor tackling made it worse. Despite changes in personnel, nothing helped.
Special teams B
Tristan Davis' 40-yard return helped, but punter Kody Bliss had an uncharacteristically poor performance, including a 29-yard punt and an 18-yarder.
D-plus might be too generous. Turnovers. Sacks. Big plays allowed by the defense. Seven first-half passing yards. All-around poor performance.
