Auburn fans were frustrated this season with inconsistent performances and the loss Monday to UCF in the Peach Bowl did nothing to cure that problem.
The Tigers looked lifeless in the first half, then broke out early in the third only to fall back into familiar patterns in the fourth quarter of their 34-27 loss.
Still, Auburn knocked off two No. 1 teams — rivals Georgia and Alabama — reached the SEC Championship Game and finished with 10 wins. Good, but frustrating it wasn’t better. Just listen to what the Tiger fans had to say.

John DeLaney: If we treated this like a business trip, we need to rethink the business strategy. Just got out coached and out played by a team that wanted it more.
Glen Knight: Gus and his staff did not do nothing to help them be prepared and motivated properly to play. Holland has been nearly unstoppable all season and did NOTHING TODAY! What the hell…..
Davey Phillips: Thank God the O-Line is graduating because they were 95% the reason we lost this game. They couldn’t stop the pass rush, they couldn’t open holes, they got hurt and allowed the pocket to collapse on Stidham at the end, they were ATROCIOUS. Worst O-line performance by any team I’ve ever seen.
T Miller: Hey hey UCF came to play, this was an undefeated team they out played our boys. Give UCF credit, they have a great coach and they played their asses off. Our QB made some huge mistakes like that last play with 33 seconds left in the game, among other mistakes. Don’t take anything away from UCF they played a hell of a game. If anything we should be embarrassed because our players played like poo poo.
David Neese: Never been ashamed of an Auburn team until today. They should have turned the invite down and stayed at home.
David- Sarah Blakey: How disappointing. We don’t seem to be able to win on the road. I am still glad we kept Gus Malzahn but we need a new offensive coordinator. For sure Jarrett will not be going to the NFL after 2 interceptions.
William Ujvari: And we just gave Gus more money for a team that plays 1 quarter of football per game in the biggest games. Shame we are stuck with this waste even longer.
Jerry Light: Nothing good to say about this game or the coaching staff. This is embarrassing and sad we bought more years of this lack of guidance. Really getting our extensions money worth. We sucked. War Eagle. Pray for a miracle next year
