Auburn, AL- the Aauburn tigers made it onto the preseason poll at number 23 in the country today.
In the ultimate example of preseason poll tragedy back in 2004 the Tigers started at 18 and eventually ended up just out of the championship picture, because of where they started.
This time around though Coach Chizik says it’s about staying at a consistent level, and not peaking at a particular point in the season.
“If you look at our team through last season right now probably the thing that's glaring the most is all the ups and downs and peaks and valleys that we had as a football team. Those things are what we've got to eliminate if we want to be better than we were last year.”
The tigers finished the 2009 season just outside of the top 25.
