Chad Slade expects Auburn’s offense to only get faster in its second year under Gus Malzahn.

“We can go a lot faster than we did last year. That’s the expectations we’re going to have for this fall,” Auburn’s senior guard said Tuesday morning after the first day of spring practices. “How fast we went last year, we can go 10 times faster than we did. We just have to get good with our base offense and good with our base defense, and I think we should click on all cylinders and come out there with a fast-paced offense.”
