AUBURN – Tommy Tuberville was in a playful mood Sunday, and when he was asked a routine question about Auburn’s ongoing quarterback battle, he seemed to hint that the news was ready to be released. “You can ask Tony today.”
“He said that?” responded Auburn offensive coordinator Tony Franklin, who thankfully didn’t choke on the apple he was munching.
False alarm. If there’s been a starter named for Auburn’s season opener Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe, no one’s ready to share it yet. Kodi Burns and Chris Todd are still co-starters, and it appears increasingly likely that the quarterbacks will share snaps in something approximating a 50-50 split.
