"Last year we weren’t coached very well. We weren’t as smart as players as we are this year with a change on defense." McNeal said. "Last year, we put on kind of a clown show, a lot of guys not doing their work and not doing their job. This year, we just detailed our work."Brutal Honesty Demetruce McNeal is much happier with this year's Auburn defense than last year's. You could argue they still put on a bit of a clown show in allowing 410 yards and 28 points to ULM, but who's counting?
