Moseley to get the start at QB for Auburn

Following a lackluster first-half performance in the embarrassing loss to Arkansas, which followed a lackluster start to the season overall, Kiehl Frazier was pulled in favor of Clint Moseley.

As the Tigers look to both rebound from the loss and turn down the heat on Gene Chizik‘s seat, AU will continue to go with the experienced hand under center.

The head coach announced Friday afternoon that Moseley, as has been speculated, will get the starting nod at quarterback for this Saturday’s game against Ole Miss.  Moseley will be playing in just his second game of the 2012 season as he’s been fighting through a shoulder issue over the past several months.

Frazier was a much-hyped four-star member of AU’s 2011 recruiting class, but, after winning a competition that began back in the spring and didn’t officially end until a handful of days ahead of the opener, has struggled mightily through the first half of his first year as a starter.  Through five games, Frazier had completed just over 50 percent of his passes and has thrown eight interceptions vs. just two touchdowns.

Last season, Moseley started the final six games of the year after replacing Barrett Trotter.  In relief of Frazier Saturday, Moseley threw for 163 yards and a touchdown in two quarters of play, but also tossed two picks.

    You got to feel bad for auburn. After getting put on probation for paying cam newton, they find themselves 1-4 and having to start a 2-star recruit at QB.

    Wait, what’s that? They’re not on probation? But….

    I didn’t understand how Chizik got the job in the first place and I see absolutley no way he keeps it.

    Minus the Cam year he’s a 22-33 overall head coach. His 2-10 Iowa St team went 7-6 after he left! They were 4-8 when he got there and he led them to 3-9 and then 2-10!!!

    He did take a 5-7 Auburn team to 8-5 but he was 3-5 in conference….I hate to pile on a guy but he is a D Coordinator stuck as a head coach. 14-0 with Cam and then back to 8-5 with a .500 conference record. Now he’s 0-3 in conference.

    The future for this team is bleak as long as he keeps the job.

    Frazier nor Moseley are starting QBs plus i dont think its Chiz`s fault as far as coaching but falls in recruiting.Auburn hasn`t had even a fair QB since Cam has left for the NFL.Auburn recruits a couple decent quarterbacks then imo they will be a threat against any team.JMO.
