Observations: Auburn football's first spring scrimmage under Bryan Harsin
Before the Tigers went head-to-head inside JHS, there was a 40-minute viewing window of practice. Here's what we learned Thursday.

Auburn football passed another mile marker in its new era under Bryan Harsin on Thursday afternoon, when the Tigers hit the field for their first scrimmage of 2021 at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Harsin didn’t give many details about what all went down in the scrimmage itself, outside of a few players who stood out and some turnover information. This was a time to lay the foundation for more specific work ahead, and he got an expected mixed bag of results.
“There were some good things out there and plenty of things we know we need to work on and get better at,” Harsin said. “Certainly in all areas, that did include special teams. … So when we go back and watch this film, the focus will be on what have we learned and what will we do moving forward. How do we take this information and apply it so that we can improve and get better? And what are things as coaches and players we need to focus on this next week?
“We’re going to improve because of it.”
