Frazier is FINALLY Named the Starter!
The decision was

everybody! Today, Auburn has a new starting quarterback, Khiel
Frazier. It was announced this afternoon by head coach Gene Chizik,
who said, “After a complete and thorough evaluation during spring
practice and through the first three-plus weeks of camp, Kiehl
Frazier has earned the starting job at quarterback.” “We expect
Kiehl to be a leader for this team and to continue to work hard every
day. I am confident in his ability and leadership skills and look
forward to watching him progress in both areas.”
For those of us who
watched spring drills, and followed camp news, the decision was
hardly a surprise. Incumbent starter Clint Moseley has battled arm
problems since early spring, and never really had a good chance to
compete. True freshman Jonathan Wallace has impressed, but even
5-star true freshman have a rough go of it in the SEC their first
season. An example that comes to mind is Georgia losing to both
Vanderbilt and Kentucky in Matthew Stafford’s first year.
Auburn’s fall camp indicated that Frazier had taken all of the snaps
with the starting unit, and this decision was clearly made before
camp started. We knew there was no way Auburn would start a guy who’d
not worked with the first team!
Khiel Frazier, and we’ll all be pulling for him this year! War Eagle,
and get ready!
