Auburn OC Makes Excuse for National Title Loss

Rhett Lashlee Auburn
The BCS National Championship game may have been about 5 months ago, but the Auburn Tigers are still feeling the sting from the loss handed to them by Florida State.

Apparently, Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee told al.com that there were some things they could have done better to win the game.

We couldve executed much better and really named our score in that game, and we didnt, Lashlee said.

We let them hang around and we ended up losing the football game...From an offensive standpoint, if we wouldve executed at a higher level, there were plays here or there that maybe even the average fan doesnt see that, if we just executed, we stay on the field on third down, or its not a bust and a sack or a throw-away, its a touchdown. That could have blown the thing open.

Everyone has regrets and it seems that Lashlee may never let this one go.

There's always next year, Auburn.
