Hugh Freeze didn’t mince words during his weekly “Tiger Talk” radio show with Auburn’s loss to New Mexico State on Saturday still fresh in his mind.

“Nobody in that building is happy. It’s embarrassing what we made our fans watch Saturday, and it starts with me,” he said on Monday.

New Mexico State outgained Auburn 414-213, including a 213-65 edge in rushing yards, in the program’s 1st-ever win against an SEC opponent. The Tigers were just 2-of-10 on 3rd down and committed 9 penalties for 75 yards. Meanwhile, Payton Thorne was sacked 4 times.

“I don’t get to see our players until Monday afternoon… but after a performance like we had Saturday, I want to see them ASAP,” Freeze said.

It was a concerning loss considering who is next on the Tigers’ schedule: they wrap up the regular season at home on Saturday against Alabama in the latest edition of the Iron Bowl. Auburn has a chance to spoil the Crimson Tide’s College Football Playoff hopes with a win at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

“Hopefully, we’ve turned the page,” Freeze said. “This one means so much to so many people.”
