Auburn’s head coach Hugh Freeze addressed reporters on Monday after an embarrassing loss to New Mexico State.

According to Michael Casagrande of, 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.

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.
