Is it similar to what the Hogs saw last year when Tulsa's offense came to Fayetteville? Yes, Robinson said, except the Tigers have a big-time offensive line.
"It's a mirror image of (Tulsa's offense)," Robinson said. "He's done a great job with that offense. Coach Malzahn should be as happy as a pig in a poke. I give him a tip of the hat for what he did at Tulsa, but this Auburn team has a great offensive line.
"They have a lot of the same things with this group as far as skilled position players, but what they now have is a really wonderful offensive line. That makes their run game exceptional.
"They do a great, great job with their power, zone and counter runs."
Does Robinson see anything different about the way Auburn's personnel looks now over last year, aside from the scheme?
"I thought they were like road graders up front last year," he said. "And, they've adjusted to a faster pace. They have made that adjustment. I'm gusssing they are in the best shape of their lives up front and they are physical."
Arkansas defensive tackle Malcolm Sheppard said he's watched lots of film on the Tigers.
"What I see in each tape is what looks like a bigger offensive line," he said. "I look at their guards. The same guys we saw last year are bigger in each case. I think they've gained weight and they are playing fast and physical."
What about running back Ben Tate, the Auburn star in the backfield?
"He's playing with great confidence," Robinson said of Tate. "He plays with his pads down. He is going to hit it up in there with confidence. At the same time, he does a nice job when you close it down and leave him a seam to the outside, he hits that, too. He's going to bounce it out on the edge if it's there.
"What that means for our front, we better be disciplined. He's going to take advantage if you don't stay where you are supposed to be.
"They do a great job with their wideouts on blocking. Their skilled guys can block. They stay on you like our guys do and that's helped their running game."
Sheppard said, "What I see in their blocking, they are more aggressive in style. They come at you. They don't give ground on run plays like they did before. And, Tate looks like he's a new player. I saw him two years ago and he was a good player. I don't remember him last year. But he's like a new man and he's playing well for Auburn now."
Part of the problem will be staying up with the pace of Auburn's play.
"When you are in the defensive line and have had to gain weight to play there, sometimes you don't quite have the endurance you once had," Sheppard said. "I feel that some and so do some of our other guys. That's why we have to roll in and out. But with their pace, you have to be careful in your subs."
Dede Jones, who rotates with Sheppard, knows they will have to make their subs in a hurry.
"We've worked on that," Jones said. "We have to pick our spots and then move quickly. We think that's one of our strong points, rolling inside and giving each other a rest after three or four plays."
Sheppard has great respect for Malzahn, as do all of the Hogs.
"First of all, he's a stand-up guy," Sheppard said. "I got to be around him a little when we went to our bowl when he was here. I liked him. He was passionate and is a great offensive coach. You see what he's doing at Auburn and they are ranked in a lot of categories.
"That's what makes this a big game and gets us excited. You play an offense like this, you get motivated. They are undefeated and it's a big game for us."
"Last week was must-win, this week is must-win," Sheppard said. "We have to win this one. We know that. We want a win to get us going in the SEC."
Defensive line coach Bobby Allen was asked if working on the same staff with Malzahn gives him any advantage. He sees similarities in what Auburn is doing with what Malzahn did at Tulsa and Arkansas, but that's it.
"There are some similarities because there are obviously some offensive philosophies that he believes in," Allen said. "But there's no real advantage having been on the same staff. It's not like I worked with him on the offensive staff and sat around and talked about all these different little things. We just went out in spring ball and worked against him."
Auburn and Malzahn will try to set the tempo this week. Did Allen think his group up front set the tempo last week against A&M?
"We felt like the kids played hard," he said. "We're fortunate we rolled in new guys and no matter who we put out there, they played hard. If we can stop the run and start to key in on the passes that will give you a little bit of an advantage. Our offense did a heck of a job in getting their offense a little one-dimensional because they needed to catch up. That's always a big plus, defensively."
Was there any built up frustration by the defensive front having not been able to get to the quarterback against Georgia and Alabama much?
"I don't know about frustration," Allen said, "but Saturday night we went out and played hard for 60 minutes. That's we asked them to do. When you get a game a little bit one-dimensional, they knew they were going to have to get off the ball and pass rush, so that played to our advantage."
The Hogs are healthy for the most part, but Robinson said cornerback Darius Winston is fighting through an injury.
"He's got a little bit of an injury and I admire the heck out of the way he's pushing through it," Robinson said. "I see his personality just getting stronger."
On the injury front, Robinson said defensive tackle Dede Jones needs to get up quicker when he gets dinged.
"Dede really played well last week but he's got to stop laying on the ground," Robinson said. "That is going to scare his mother."
Jones thought that was funny.
"I'm sure he's right about that," Jones said. "I got nicked a little and I've got to get up. He's right."
