With one month of college football behind us, has the Auburn team met or failed expectations thus far?

At Auburn a 1-3 start, no matter the situation or schedule, means the team hasn't lived up to expectations.

What one player has been the key factor in the first 3-4 games?

I think the key player in Auburn's start so far has been quarterback Kiehl Frazier. His lack of consistency early in his career has kept the offense from moving forward in Scot Loeffler's first season.

What are the key improvements that need to be made in order to ensure a successful season?

The improvements needed for this Auburn team are just to make plays on offense and cut down the mistakes while on defense. They've got to force turnovers. So far, Brian VanGorder's group is not doing a good job of setting the offense up with easy scoring opportunities.

How would your team define "success" this season?

I think success at the moment would be defined by continuing to improve and finish off the season playing winning football.

What is the most dominant headline the remainder of the season?

Auburn's dominant headline for the remainder of the season is going to be: finishing. Close in losses to Clemson and LSU, if Auburn can finish, they can make some noise the rest of the season.

Thanks to Inside the Auburn Tigers' Jason Caldwell for his in-depth contribution to this report.
