What Burns Never Returns...

...yeah that's right i made a Don Caballero reference in regards to our former would-be QB savior. what, you weren't into late 90s post-rock?

2 seasons ago when Kodi Burns arrived at Auburn i had visions of Dameyune Craig, Micheal Bishop, Dennis Dixon, Pat White, Charlie Ward, & even Tommie Frazier dancing in my head. too bad Auburn doesn't run the old Nebraska option offense...Burns woulda been perfect for that. sadly for all the kids potential he was just never the #1 thing a QB needs to be....Consistent. i blame the constant changes in the offense more than anything, but at the end of the day the coaches didn't believe in him and so that was that.

Burns best quote about losing the job:
"I just told them that I love each and every one of them," he said. "We work together, we sweat together, we bleed together out there working out. I was the guy last year. And things change. Things change for the better most of the time. And things happen for a reason. Just like I said, Chris Todd is the quarterback and whether they wanted me or wanted another quarterback -- it doesn't matter. Chris is the guy. We have to get behind him. He's going to be a leader of this team. I'm also going to be a leader of this team as well."

word. i will be rooting for the kid...

and so it goes for Kodi Burns. welcome to the fantastic world of Auburn receivers.
