AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn?coach Gus Malzahn was more reflective and apologetic than normal at his news conference Tuesday, showing a rare display of emotion.Before taking any questions, Malzahn opened by addressing the recent losses to Clemson?and Texas A&M?to begin the season.Ive been at Auburn for seven years now, experienced some very good times, a few rough times, Malzahn said. The last two losses, I can honestly say, have probably hurt me worse than any of the others.I fully understand our fan base is disappointed, and they should be. The bottom line is weve got to coach our players better, and that starts with me.That hurt and that self-reflection, the way he took the blame for his players and fellow coaches, was a theme throughout Malzahns 22 minutes on the podium.When asked about whether or not theres any friction among his players, Malzahn made it clear its his job to make sure the team is on the same page.The big thing for me is the players are playing their guts out, theyre playing hard, Malzahn said.

Thats whats goiing to get done.ddddddddddddWere close and when you really look at everything, weve played two very good teams and had opportunities. We have to take that next step.

He even empathizes with them.I definitely feel their pain, Malzahn said. I know the Auburn family. I know their expectations. I dont read social media. I just know. They expect us to play good football. I hurt, too. Weve got to do a better job. Ive got to do a better job. And were going to.When asked to assess his playcalling to this point in the season, Malzahn was brutally honest. He said it had not been very good and that it needs to get better.Malzahn also announced Tuesday that Sean White will remain Auburns starting quarterback against LSU?despite turning to John Franklin III in the second half against Texas A&M.
