The Auburn Tigers enter this season with a No. 22 ranking and are predicted to finish third in the Southeastern Conference Western Division by league media, which would be a two-spot improvement from last season.
Baby steps, Auburn.
Craig Stevens and Josh Bynes rarely leave the field when the No. 22 Auburn Tigers are playing.
"We don't have to fight for the attention but I just think we need to get to the championship," he said. "That's what we're working on, to get from good to great. That's really our intentions, just to get there."
Bates said the team isn't focused on headlines and TV time, or lack thereof.
