Trotter Talks Handling Adversity

Auburn quarterback Barrett Trotter talks about the offensive problems, dealing with adversity, and much more.

Auburn quarterback Barrett Trotter has taken much of the heat for the Tigers' offensive struggles this season. He talks about that, fixing mistakes, and much more in this two-part video.

This week has obviously been a tough one for Trotter and his offensive teammates after struggling mightily in the loss to Arkansas. As has always been the case, it is the quarterback that bears the brunt of much of the criticism and Trotter said he understands that.

"I'm going to get all the criticism probably when I don't deserve it, and I'm going to get all the praise when I don't deserve it," Trotter said. "That's just part of the position.

"It comes with the position. You try to prepare for that as much as you can, but before you're the guy and it's going on to you, it's a lot different. But it is what it is."

With a week to improve and get better before facing an athletic and hungry Florida defense, Trotter said the offense is focused on eliminating the problems that hindered them against the Razorbacks and just executing the offense as well as possible.

"The goal in practice obviously is to see what they're doing and find a plan that we feel like can work on what they're going to give us," Trotter said. "We've just got to execute on Saturdays, is the main thing. The games we've lost, we've started off well. We put points on the board quick and then just kind of sputtered after that and didn't really do a whole lot. Just continuing to move the ball throughout the game and put points on the board is going to be key."
