I'm going to be a bit of a contrarian and predict that Zeke Pike will surprise everyone and be the starting QB in the fall. I think Moseley is still 'shell shocked' from all the hits he took last year and KF is just too timid and lacks the confidence to lead the team on a regular basis. Instead, Zeke will have the benefit of Spring Practice working with Loeffler and after his performance at the Elite Eleven Camp, I think he has the skills and swagger to move this team further and faster than either of the other options. Since that QB leadership has been a key missing ingredient this year, filling that position with a strong, confident individual is of utmost importance.
An example of this was BT's performance in the Bowl game. He had already graduated and I think he knew this was his last game. Since he knew he had nothing to lose, he played the game of his life, with all the confidence and strength of character that you could have wanted in a winning QB. For that he has my lasting respect. WDE!

I disagree. I remember that Loeffler recruited KF. I think he will be a good one. With his athleticism, he doesn't have to be a fantastic passer, he just needs to be good. I think with his ability to get away from defenders, give his receivers time, and such a stout running game coming to Auburn, he will get the job done. I don't see Zeke Pike coming in as a true freshman and being the starter. Though, if KF goes down, Zeke Pike very well might get the nod of Moseley. That said, Moseley did come from a really small school and he got thrown into the fire against LSU. Give the kid a chance, that was not exactly the most ideal conditions. Not to mention, he had no offensive line, a running back who was kicked off the team, receivers who couldn't get open outside of Emory Blake and Lutz having to constantly be used as a blocker took away his other top receiving option. Let's give the kid a break, he might get a lot better. Zeke Pike will be a starter his junior year though I think. I think he will be the best of the bunch and on that much we agree.

After being down 24 in the Iron Bowl, I've come to believe that when it comes to Auburn, anything is possible. All I know is that I want a QB who can look in the eyes of the defense and make them flinch.
Good morning, vh.
And a top of the morn to you Thistle. I'm alive, so it's going to be a great day no matter what!
you mean I'm not alive. Darn!
Did you watch the Elite Eleven? (It was admittedly difficult to watch because it seemed the whole purpose was to expand the charade of Trent Dilfer's relevancy). I ask because while it was cool that Pike was there, he took his share of lumps. Just curious if you caught it.
But I like the kid and am glad we have him. Reading up on Lefty's background I feel pretty good about all our QB's reaching their potential.
Alabama delenda est.
Yes and I came to the same conclusion. I also noted that it seemed to be slanted to downplay Zeke's ability, but he rose above it and like Cam, silenced the naysayers.
