Bosley Preparing For Round Two

Jason Bosley is expected to start at center for a second consecutive week.

Auburn, Ala.--After being in the game for 53 of Auburn's 60 offensive plays against Arkansas, Jason Bosley says he is eager for his second start this week vs. the Florida Gators.

Filling in for injured started Joe Cope, who is expected to be out of action for another month or so, Bosley admits he didn't have a great performance in Auburn's loss to the Razorbacks, but says, "It wasn't as bad as it looked. I graded 89 percent and had four pancakes. For my first start I think I did pretty good."

Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville and offensive coordinator Al Borges both predict that Bosley should be an improved player this week as the Tigers take on Florida after having a game of starting experience behind him.

Jason Bosley made his first college start vs. the Arkansas Razorbacks.

"I think I will improve a lot," Bosley says. "I think I had some typical first start jitters. On play five or six, I can't remember which one it was, I got hit pretty good. After that I think I settled down and played some pretty good football and got into a groove."

Improvement on the offensive line is needed not just at center. Bosley notes that Coach Hugh Nall told his linemen to show up for practice on Tuesday ready to improve with unbeaten Florida on the schedule this week.

"He said we just have to keep working, work on finishing our blocks and staying on people," Bosley says. "We have got to take it to another level. It is not going to get any easier the rest of the season."
