Liner Loves "Live" Atmosphere For LSU Game

Auburn commitment Dee Liner talks about the atmosphere for the LSU game and his impressions of the defense.

Muscle Shoals, Ala.—Five-star defensive lineman Dee Liner was one of the dozens of prospects in attendance Saturday night in Jordan-Hare Stadium to watch the Auburn Tigers take #2 LSU down to the wire before falling 12-10. Paying special attention to the defensive side of the ball, Liner tells Inside The Auburn Tigers that it was a special night just to be a part of things on the Plains.

"That atmosphere was just live," Liner said. "They were just going head-to-head and that's what I like to see. Even though they lost the game I'm still 100 percent with Auburn no matter what.

"The defense has some work to do, but like T'Sharvan Bell said in the locker room, they've just got to finish," Liner adds. "They've got to finish in practices and games. That's a key thing in life, just finish."

Sitting in the South end zone along with fellow commitments Reuben Foster, Carl Lawson, Cameron Toney, Jason Smith and others, Liner said it was another chance for them to come together, have fun, and talk about the future playing together at Auburn.

"We were just sitting there watching the game and having a good time," Lawson said. "I asked Reuben if he was still 100 percent and he told me yes. No matter what, me and Reuben are coming to play. We're going to bring everybody else and have a great defense."

Watching Brian VanGorder's defense take some huge strides forward, Liner noted that the Tigers never backed down in the game and brought the fight to LSU. That's something he expected to see and one of the things he's anxious to keep going in the coming years.

"I just saw them coaching the guys well," Liner said. "They didn't give up. I saw a lot of great things. That's why I made my decision to come play for Auburn."

After missing the first game of the season for Muscle Shoals, Liner has returned and his team has continued to dominate opponent after opponent on its schedule. Outscoring the opposition 168-3 in four games, Muscle Shoals takes on Dora this week at home before next week's showdown with fellow unbeaten and defending state champ Hartselle.
