Kiehl Frazier on His Rough Start
It's been a rough week start for Auburn Quarterback Kiehl Frazier.
In Saturday's loss against Mississippi State, Frazier had three interceptions, two fumbles, and zero touchdowns.
Frazier is now 0-2 as the Tigers starting quarterback, and his cumulative stats aren't much better: 24-of-49, four interceptions, and just one touchdown through two games.
And although Auburn fans might have felt a little sick to their stomach after Saturday's game, Frazier and the Tigers are doing their best to move on.
“The sky is not falling. Today still came. So we just have to get better,” said Frazier.
So what exactly went wrong?
“Too many mistakes. I mean, on every play. There's something here, something there. Just me personally, I think I had a mistake on 75% of the plays,” said Frazier.
“I knew they had a good defensive front coming in, and I would kind of lead my drop and just kind of watch the rush, and that caused me to throw errant balls,” Frazier said.
Confidence is crucial for a quarterback, so it makes many wonder about the emotional toll the loss takes on the Tigers young quarterback.
And worse – Auburn's next game, which initially sounded like a good confidence builder for Frazier, may be just the opposite.
Louisiana-Monroe comes to The Plains red hot. They just pulled off a huge upset over then-ranked No. 8 Arkansas.
“Well that's the first time I've ever been through, playing like that, like that bad. So it's something that's kind of new for me,” Frazier said. “But today I'm just ready for the ULM game to get here. Our supposed to be cakewalk game is gone, so we're excited for that.”
Auburn faces off with this week's giant-killers, Louisiana-Monroe at home this Saturday.
