Malzahn not pleased with Wednesday's effort

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

For the first time this spring, Gus Malzahn said he wasn't pleased with a practice after Auburn's spring workout on Wednesday.

"This is probably the first time I wasn't pleased with our attitude, effort, overall approach to practice, and I told the guys afterwards that we've got to do better," Malzahn said. "We're at the midpoint of spring, and that's the thing you've got to worry about from a coach's standpoint, and we are going to get that corrected and I think our players understand that."

Wednesday was the Tigers' first practice in three days, after Monday's workout was cancelled, but Malzahn said the layoff had no effect.

Meanwhile, there is still no clear front-runner for the quarterback position. Central's Jonathan Wallace and Kiehl Frazier are still splitting snaps equally. Malzahn said evaluating the pair will come later, after their supporting cast has improved.

"When everybody did what they were supposed to do around them, I thought they did a very solid job," he said. "he big thing for us is protecting the football and doing the little things right, and like I said the other day, it's going to be easier to evaluate our quarterbacks the second part of this spring because we should have more people executing around them."

Auburn is back at practice on Friday, with A-Day scheduled for April 20.
