There is one famous Auburn supporter that is growing a little tired of the struggles of Gus Malzahn’s offense.
Tigers legendary basketball star Charles Barkley voiced his opinion to ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit on the radio earlier this week, letting it be known that changes must be made.
“Can we change a blocking scheme, keep a tight end in or keep a running back in,” Barkley said per Mark Heim of AL.com. “I was frustrated watching (Jarrett) Stidham run for his life.”
Auburn gave up 11 sacks while gaining just 117 yards of total offense in the 14-6 loss to Clemson on Saturday. More frustrating for Tigers fans were the struggles that continued when the offense got into the red zone, as Auburn had two chances to put a touchdown on the board but instead settled for field goals by Daniel Carlson.
“I always tell people you can’t kick field goals on the road,” Barkley said. “You can kick field goals at home because the crowd can always try to keep you pumped up, but on the road you can’t kick field goals to win. I know enough about football that kicking two field goals, we’re in trouble after that.”
