Auburn's good start poses new challenge

I wrote a story for today's paper about how Auburn is trying to downplay the hype after getting got off to a quick start. Here's how it begins:

AUBURN, Ala. — Gene Chizik spent most of the offseason trying to convince Auburn nation that he was the right man to bring the program back to glory.

He spent Sunday trying to convince people that things haven’t been as easy as they’ve looked in two one-sided victories to start the season.

“I don’t think it’s been easy at all,” he said. “There were times in both of those games when things were back and forth. I don’t know what it looks like on the outside. I know what it looks like on the inside.

“We’re not playing perfect, and there’s a lot of times that we’re not playing very well at all. We’re a work in progress.”
