A late-June departure for his home state of Kentucky brought about several questions as to whether Auburn quarterback Zeke Pike would be Auburn quarterback Zeke Pike for much longer.
Tigers coach Gene Chizik didn’t exactly provide any more insight about Pike’s future on Wednesday during SEC media days, either. Pike was charged with public intoxication last month.
“We have certain standards and expectations of our guys,” Chizik said. “That’s why I sent him home.”
As for whether Pike will eventually come back to Auburn, Chizik replied “We’ll make that decision… Right now, he’s at home and he’ll remain there.”
Tough to tell where Chizik is leaning on this issue, but you never want to have your fate in someone else’s hands and that’s exactly what Pike is facing right now.
