You may remember this J.C. Copeland quote from last season:
“After the first couple of hits, everybody (on AU’s defense) was just backing up,” Copeland said “They didn’t want to hit at all. Before I got to them, they just fell down and just laid on the ground.”
Auburn is, accordingly, pulling it out of the file for motivational purposes this week:
“It’s a huge disrespect to us and what we stand for,” Lemonier said. “We’re just going to use that as momentum, put fire in, and just use it as motivation for us.”
Something tells me this is one motivational trick that just won’t work.
