For the second straight week, Auburn’s quarterback of the future will be a thing of the past, at least for the time being.
During his radio show Thursday night, flaming-hot-seat head coach Gene Chizik confirmed that Clint Moseley will again start under center this weekend against favored (chuckle) Vanderbilt as the Tigers look to avoid dropping to 1-6 on the season. A combination of poor play plus a lingering injury “affecting his ability to throw” will leave Kiehl Frazier on the sidelines for another week after he had started the first five games of the season.
“Clint had a very good week of practice,” Chizik said during the radio show and as relayed by the Birmingham News. “Kiehl has a little bit of a nagging injury. He’s going to have to push and work through it. That’s the bottom line.”
In a game and a half this season, Moseley, who’s battled his own injury issues throughout the year, has completed just over 60 percent of his passes. In five games in his first year as AU’s starter, Frazier had completed just under 50 percent of his passes with just two touchdowns versus eight interceptions.
