Chris Todd named Auburn's 2009 starting QB

As reported by Jay G. Tate, Gene Chizik told the team that Chris Todd will be Auburn's starting quarterback for the season-opening Louisiana Tech game. Some money quotes:

"Kodi felt like he could help this team somewhere on offense. We can use him in the Wildcat. We can put him over there at wide receiver. He's very athletic and we're going to give him every opportunity to help this team." - Gene Chizik

Burns stood up at a players-only meeting and asked the team to rally behind Todd. "He said he had my back. It took a lot for him to go up there and say that," Todd said.

Glad to hear Kodi's taking this well (at least on the outside). I hope the team heeds his advice and rallies behind Todd. We won't do squat this season if the players aren't all fully behind Todd.

Does this change your season prediction at all?

Nah. I don't think it will matter much which QB we put out there right now. Maybe a win difference, but nothing substantial.
