"I think Jay Jacobs is aware and is going to do a better job as far as maintenance of it," Spikes said. "To have the team win a national championship the way they did, and have Newton win the Heisman, and come back and pretty much suck the next two years, is why it's so hard for not only alumni but the fans to swallow."
over the last 20 years, only to plunge back to mediocrity and beyond before rising again.
The Tigers have had four seasons since 1993 with no more than one loss, under four different coaches. They've matched that with four losing seasons.
Jacobs is looking beyond this season and hoping Auburn can keep it going.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. The Auburn Tigers are hoping this time will be different.
The trick for first year coach Gus Malzahn and athletic director Jay Jacobs will be sustaining a high level of success consistently.
since 1990, Auburn has improved by five or more wins from one season to the next. That matches the most by any Football Bowl Subdivision program, putting Auburn in the company of Hawaii, Rice, Tulane and Tulsa.
"That's exactly what we're striving for," said Jacobs, a former Auburn offensive lineman, who has worked in the athletic department for more than two decades. "I think this year we've built a foundation and we said back in December when we hired Gus, we're not sure how many wins we'll get but Auburn football's going to be fun. It's certainly been fun.
Few programs have been so up and down during that span.
It's the goal, though.
Spikes is optimistic that there won't be a repeat of what happened in the aftermath of the Cam Newton led national championship season in 2010. The Tigers won four Southeastern Conference games over the next two seasons, including a goose egg in 2012.
The Tigers are poised to land their fifth consecutive recruiting class rated among the nation's top 13 in the 247Sports composite rankings. That's a nice start.
"It's been a season for the ages."

This Auburn team has produced the most dramatic rebound of them all. The second ranked Tigers soared from a 3 9 debacle a year ago to Monday night's BCS championship game against Florida State at the Rose Bowl.

The Nike Air Max Thea Size 8 search for stability has also included a big raise for Malzahn, who has already agreed to a new six year deal worth $3.85 million annually.
knew that we were going to get it turned around," Malzahn said on Sunday. "I didn't know how quick."
Jacobs feels Malzahn, an experienced group of assistant coaches and their successes in recruiting make for a bright future.
"When you just look around the league, you see teams that have peaked and valleyed and then they've peaked again," he said. "It's a challenging thing, but I know that with Gus's leadership and everything that we're doing at Auburn in the athletics department, we're building a program for stability and for the future."
Auburn is far from the only program that has struggled to maintain a high level of success year in and year out.
