Auburn maintaining 'New Day' mentality

Posted: Updated:

Day two of SEC Media Says is in the books. The Auburn Tigers took the stage Wednesday night.

This was Gus Malzahn's first time as coach at SEC Media Days. He wanted to make sure that anything that happened in the past stayed in the past.

Gus Malzahn spent his first day assuring fans that brighter days are ahead.

"We're putting last year in the rearview mirror and we're not looking back. It's a new day. I don't why, how, whatever happened. I told our coaches. You watch film, you evaluate, let's not have an preconceived ideas for other people," Malzahn said.

The biggest difference in the Malzahn era is the fast paced offense, the same one that won a national title in 2010.

 "It was really hard to adjust to, but now that we have adjusted to it, it is going to be an advantage for us," said Auburn fullback Jay Prosch. "The conditioning we have now, the shape we're in, we are going to be one of the most in shape teams on the field."

Malzahn did not reveal any indicators about the future quarterback.

"We've got four guys we are going to try to evaluate. It's a lot of guys. We'd rather name one sooner rather than later," said Malzahn.

And while the fast paced practices have been physically taxing, players see a difference in morale.

"This is the most fun I've ever had in summer workouts," said Auburn defensive end Dee Ford. "I've definitely changed my whole body without even knowing it. I feel like I'm working without really working. I'm just out having fun."

The Tigers expect to bring that same enthusiasm to Jordan-Hare Stadium in a little more than a month.

    It's kind of an odd road trip in the middle of the season for the Auburn Tigers. They play Thursday night at Kansas State. It will be their first game this year against a ranked opponent.
