The Auburn defensive end says that won’t happen to the Tigers this year, even after two straight losses.
“It’s different from last year. The team is not dividing,” says Carter. “It’s a strong family this year – a stronger bond.”
Auburn finished a disappointing 5-7 last season, but started this year with five straight wins before suffering losses to Arkansas and Kentucky. The Tigers will try to rebound against No. 9 LSU in Baton Rouge on Saturday night.
Carter and others have acknowledged this fall that a split in last year’s team served to undermind the season s, especially down the stretch when Auburn lost six of its final seven games.
