Special teams anything but for Auburn

I wrote a story for today's newspaper about Auburn's struggles on special teams. Here's how it starts:

AUBURN, Ala. — A brief yawn from a reporter during a late interview session last week caught the eye of Auburn special teams coordinator Jay Boulware.

The coach couldn’t help but say something.

“Yeah, that makes this guy tired, talking about special teams,” Boulware remarked with a tinge of seriousness. “That’s what most people do. They yawn until we start missing field goals and having kick returns for touchdowns, and then they want to jump on my behind.”

Neither of those two breakdowns happened last Saturday against Mississippi State, but the Tigers had enough special teams gaffes that Boulware was back on the hot seat Wednesday night, answering question after question about the only part of Auburn’s team not thriving early this season.
