    Since 2006 Auburn has started 5, 4, 6, 5, 4, 6, 6, 5, 2 and 4. They look to start 7 whites in 2017. Gus Malzahn's Auburn Tigers are going to be pretty dark as usual. However, there are some positives for like a future NFL'er in (So) QB Jarrett Stidham! Stidham a no.1 ranked dual threat QB out of HS, and it shows at Auburn! The back-up QB Sean White is white too!

    At human battering ram a.k.a FB (Jr) FB/HB Chandler Cox ( whose a man-beast) at 6'1 240, will mostly block , but he will see some goal-line carries and safety valve passes. Back-up (So) TE Sal Cannella (Italian) will get playing time, and at 6'5 and only 228 lbs he's got good speed and agility. Auburn has a castebuster at WR in Will Hastings, who caught 11 balls for 98 yards and a TD in 2016. Hastings a former walk-on, is set for a jump in production and snaps, he's battling for the "Slot" receiver spot.

    Zero whites start on D for Auburn, as always... Back-up (Jr) MLB- Josh Shockley 5'11 225 lbs, is the only white likely to see some playing time.
    Players to look out for in 2017: TE/WR- Sal Cannella 6'5 228, TE-Tucker Brown 6'3 280, OT- Bailey Sharp 6'5 300, C- Kaleb Kim 6'4 293 (asian/white mixed), ILB- Josh Shockley 5'11 225.

    Offense

    QB- (So) Jarrett Stidham 6'3 214
    WR- (Jr) Will Hastings 5'10 170
    WR/TE- (S0) Sal Cannella 6'5 228
    HB- (Jr) Chandler Cox 6'1 240
    LT- (Sr) Austin Golson 6'5 312
    C- (Sr) Casey Dunn 6'4 292
    RT- (Sr) Braden Smith 6'6 303

    Not a very appealing team from the starting line up but I think the presence of the athletic Jarrett Stidham along with Chandler Cox, Will Hastings, and Sal Cannella will make the team at least some what intriguing, especially compared to the rest of the SEC. Hastings and Cannella could end up starters by the end of the year, and I remember murmurs last off-season that Cox was going to get some carries.

    Yes, Vanilla-Sky at first glance they look disgusting, but Auburn actually have some very talented white athletes ready to break-out in 2017. I honestly only wanted to do Auburn's write-up,because I have some family who won't shut-up about them ( also my home state). .

    With that being said, Auburn does actually have a Offense this year that looks like it could get intresting. However, their still barely worth supporting because of their shitty looking D (literally). I just can't understand how these amazing SEC coaches can't find a single white athlete that's good enough to play defense ( theirs plenty of good white defensive players in the southeast don't give me that ****). Yet they fill their whole damn line-up with a couple good black players, and mostly just overhyped average players.

    WR- Will Hastings has exploded onto the scene, thru 4 games he has 11 catches for 210 yards and a TD! Only a junior, it will be intresting to see if Auburn screws up his development or not.

    Also, TE- Sal Cannella recently changed positions to WR. Resulting in, back-up OG- Tucker Brown moving to TE to fill the void! Cannella 6'5 228 has the frame, and speed to play WR, looks like a mismatch nightmare in college. Tucker Brown will probably be mostly a blocking TE at 6'3 280...

    Edit: Auburn look to be starting 7 whites now! With Kyle Davis being dismissed from Auburns team, and Austin Golson actually being the starter at LT.

    C-
    (Sr) Casey Dunn 6'4 292 With Austin Golson moving to LT, Dunn has started the last 2 games at Center!

    WR/TE-
    (So) Sal Cannella 6'5 228 Cannella takes over at Auburns "Big Slot" position, after former starter Kyle Davis was dismissed from the team! Cannella is a mismatch nightmare at 6'5 228 with great speed, and has 3 rec for 31 yards so far.

    Interesting. Auburn apart from a lone white LB every once in a while and a say a white FB who does nothing but block traditionally they have been one of the most caste teams imaginable. Granted WR Will Hastings is not a routine target but with Cannella more in the mix now too perhaps this team has turned a corner at least in the short run. I suspect this is a one time anomaly but time will tell on that score. I am racking my brain and can't think of a white WR over the years other than Hastings?
