Auburn Already Working Toward 2012 Season

Auburn, AL-- The Auburn Tigers are now two days into fall practice.

Coach Gene Chizik and his guys hit the field for their first workout Wendesday, then followed up with another Thursday.

It's rather early in the process but so far the 4th year head coach likes what he sees so far.

"A lot of young guys kind of rotating in,' says coach Chizik "trying to get their feet wet you know, with college football. So that was good to see, some of the older guys coaching the younger guys. So, so far to go. We got a long way to go. But you know what, their minds are in the right place. Mentally they're into it, they're focused on what it is they want to accomplish."

Auburn opens with a biggie, taking on Clemson September First in Atlanta.
