HD: Malzahn proud, excited for the future
AUBURN | Head coach Gus Malzahn addressed the media on Friday afternoon to wrap-up the Tigers' 2013 dream season. Malzahn talks about the progress that was made during his first season at Auburn and the bright future that awaits.
MALZAHN: "After having a few days to reflect on the season, a couple of things really stand out to me. At the first of the year, one of our main goals was to get our edge back, to play hard-nosed, blue-collar, smashmouth football.
And I really feel like our guys accomplished that. The bottom line is we came within 13 seconds of winning the national championship. At the very first of the year, I think the very first game, we were probably average at best. Our guys found a way to get better each game and found a way to get us to the last game. To come that close to winning, that was very special to be part of.
Extremely proud of our team. The way they represented us all year. They laid a foundation that the future's very bright, and really looking forward to the future and building this thing the right way."
