Auburn’s head coach Hugh Freeze addressed reporters on Monday after an embarrassing loss to New Mexico State.
According to Michael Casagrande of AL.com, Freeze said Auburn is “in a fog” because it did not show up at home versus the Aggies in a 10-31 defeat. The Tigers, who are 6-5, are trying to end Alabama’s College Football Playoff hopes in the Iron Bowl this weekend at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Nick Saban’s bunch comes off a 66-10 victory at Bryant-Denny Stadium over Chattanooga.
Hugh Freeze said everyone seems to be in a fog this Monday morning after the NMSU loss. He’d like to see a little spirit as they move on to play Alabama.

Crimson Tide fans are not buying Freeze’s comment. They are locked into the Tigers playing their best against the Tide. Auburn could be 0-11 heading into the Iron Bowl, but its best comes out versus its in-state rival. The Tigers could have Alabama limping into the Southeastern Conference Championship against Georgia if it wins. Alabama fans sounded off on Freeze via Twitter.

Auburn didn’t even know they had a game last week because they practiced for Alabama all week. Auburn about to run the goofiest nonsense Saturday that they haven’t run all year and it’ll work to perfection. https://t.co/OriQ16XfzL
