AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - The Auburn Tigers go into fall camp with
more depth and plenty of familiarity with the coaches.
The Tigers formally reported Wednesday ahead of the first
practice Thursday evening. They have plenty of newcomers with
chances to play, led by tailback Michael Dyer.
Auburn also is the only Southeastern Conference team to return
its entire coaching staff intact.
Guard Byron Isom says he doesn't think lack of depth will be a
big issue for this team. Auburn is approaching the full allotment
of 85 scholarship players.
Some of the biggest position battles come at right tackle,
defensive end and punter.
Safeties Aairon Savage, Mike McNeil and Zac Etheridge are all
returning from serious injuries.
