AUBURN, Ala. — Ellis Johnson had no problems with the way his secondary played last week. In fact, he thought they played "good." Then again, it was difficult to get too accurate a read, he admitted, since Arkansas "didn't challenge our corners much."
Still, Johnson was able to cite at least two examples where the Tigers were beat and then didn't have to pay for it.
"They had one where they overthrew a receiver when Trovon (Reed) had coverage," Auburn's defensive coordinator said. "Mincy slipped down one time in press man -- I think they threw a little out cut on him. But I thought they played really good."
Johnson is just relieved that he has multiple players he could put at corner, with the thought all could handle the job without issue.
"We feel like we can play four guys out there, though — Mincy, (Joshua) Holsey, Trovon Reed and Jonesy," he said. "And the fresher they are, the better they're going to be, fundamentally and technique."
