First-year Auburn coach Gene Chizik said Thursday the race was too close to call.So it goes. As I've said: I'd much prefer Malzahn and Co. be patient and name a guy they believe in when they believe in him, rather than flip a coin, name a guy now just to look decisive, and possibly hand over a majority of reps to the wrong player.
"We've got two days left (in the spring), and I don't envision being able to name a starter," Chizik said.
Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn had said to start the spring that he hoped to identify a starter going into the summer. But there just hasn't been enough separation at this point.
If we go into Week 1 with Malzahn saying he's going to alternate series between the two of them--just to pick a hypothetical example--that's when we'll have problems.
