UT Martin pregame

I look down on the field today and see something familiar.

That's because Auburn is playing Bizarro Auburn.

The Tigers are technically playing UT Martin, but the Skyhawks are wearing helmets that look just like Auburn's with Auburn's colors. The only difference is UTM is wearing orange jerseys. If they were wearing white jerseys, it would look just like Auburn's spring game out there.

A few notes to pass along:

  • DE Antonio Coleman and DT Sen'Derrick Marks are not dressed and will not play today. Antoine Carter will start in Coleman's place. Mike Blanc will start for Marks.
  • DT Tez Doolittle won't start, but is dressed. Zach Clayton will start.
  • Good injury news to report for Auburn: WR Rod Smith and CBs Neiko Thorpe and Jerraud Powers are all dressed. Smith won't start. Slaughter will start instead. There hasn't been an official announcement on the cornerback spot.
