Former Auburn DB Smoke Monday explains what Tigers need to do to get back on track
Former Auburn safety Smoke Monday is currently with the New Orleans Saints, but at heart he’s still very much a Tiger, and on Tuesday he tweeted about what the coaching staff should do to start scoring some points.
Auburn nation we need to feed TANK The ball more he needs the ball in his hand ??

Monday’s bold answer? Start giving junior running back Tank Bigsby the ball more.
Bigsby currently has 237 yards on 38 carries and 3 touchdowns. He is 3rd on the team in catches with 7 for 69 yards with 0 receiving TDs.
Auburn only managed 24 points in a Week 2 win against San Jose State before scoring just 12 points in last Saturday’s home loss to Penn State. The offense is struggling mightily, and head coach Bryan Harsin has been hearing strong rumors that his job is in jeopardy despite the Tigers being 2-1 going into SEC play.
So Monday, a second-team All-SEC selection for the Tigers in 2020, went to Twitter to give his 2 cents on what Harsin and his staff should start doing beginning on Saturday when Auburn hosts Missouri.
Monday played 4 seasons for the Tigers before going undrafted last spring. He was immediately signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent. But during an early August practice Monday suffered a torn ACL, which ended his rookie season before it started. Monday was placed on injured reserve.
