Goodbye, good luck

AUBURN – Auburn wide receiver Jay Wisner has left the team for personal reasons.
“He is a great young man and he has done everything we've asked him to do," Chizik said. "And we're going to try to help him in any way, and we wish him well. But last week he decided to leave the team.”
Wisner, a senior walk-on, caught three passes for 56 yards during his Auburn career, but was considered a solid blocker.
In Auburn’s game against South Carolina, he threw a block on a bubble screen that proved instrumental in a 12-yard touchdown pass from Newton to Emory Blake in the Tigers’ 35-27 victory.

Fairley a one-man sack attack
Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley continues to lead the SEC in sacks (five) and tackles for loss (11.5).
He was asked Sunday about the importance of playing tough up front.
“You've got to be angry,” Fairley said. “You can't be nice playing in the trenches. If you come up being nice, they're going to bully you around. I just think about something to motivate you. Just what I'm doing this for, something like that.”
Fairley also says the players take note when an offensive player is slow to get up after a hit.
“Oh yeah, when you see them getting up real slow, you're like, 'We've got them right where we want 'em,' he said. “Just keep on tackling him. It won't be long before he gets out of there.”

At home at Kentucky
Although Kentucky won 21-14 last year at Auburn, the Tigers have a 7-0 streak going in games played at Kentucky.
Auburn hasn’t lost at Kentucky since 1966.
