Good work: Auburn says it took advantage of bye week
Sept. 11, 2014

Gus Malzahn likes the work week for Auburn

By Charles Goldberg
AUBURN, Ala.  Gus Malzahn will spend Auburn's open date working. 
The Auburn coach will be the studio guest analyst for CBS' college football show beginning at 1:30 p.m. Saturday after the Tigers wrapped up what Malzahn said was a good week of practice Thursday.
"Good exposure" for Auburn, Malzahn said of his TV work.
The Tigers will return Sunday to finish up for their preparation for next Thursday night's game at Kansas State.
So far, it was so good for Auburn, said defensive tackle Gabe Wright.
"A bye week, you have to be even more locked in," Wright said. "To be honest, I feel like we took advantage of this open week. 
"Guys are going to get a little rest tomorrow. Saturday, a couple of guys will get together and watch the other games. But, for the most part, Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday went really well. We got our base packages done. We did start game-planning for Kansas State."
Malzahn said Auburn improved "on some little things as far as offense, defense and special teams."
 Malzahn also gave a good medical report for receiver Sammie Coates, who was held out of last Saturday's win over San Jose State with an undisclosed injury.
"He's getting better and we expect him to play," Malzahn said.
Wright will take advantage of Saturday's open date by… watching football?
"There is no such thing as getting away. Even if I told you I was going on vacation, I'd find some way to get on ESPN," he said.
And find some way to watch his coach?
Wright said probably. "There are some good matchups this weekend," he said.
