The upperclassmen have a national championship under their belts from two years ago, and they could also be a part of the worst Auburn team record-wise in more than half a century. The 1-6 start is the worst since 1952, the year before Ralph "Shug" Jordan was hired.
"We're all going to continue to fight," he added. "We're never going to quit. That's just us. That's how we are as a team. It's tough, but we're never going to give up."
Blake led the championship team with eight receiving scores as a sophomore. More than halfway through his senior season he has just two touchdown receptions.
"We've just got to figure out a way," Blake said. "We just didn't get it done today. We just have to execute. It's as simple as that. They had some good calls, but we didn't execute.
"We have to take it one game at a time and win each and every one of them," he added. "Like I said, we didn't expect to be here, and we don't like being here. It's different for all of us. But this is where we are." Auburn's record since the 14-0 season is 9-11.
So how do the Tigers keep fighting each week?
"I won't say it's just a grind," Blake responded. "It's always a grind. We're going to keep working hard, and that's about it."
Blake caught four passes for 47 yards on Saturday at Vanderbilt. He is ninth in career receiving in school history with 1,658 yards.
