Gus Malzahn Says Nick Marshall Will Not Start Against Arkansas

Auburn fans got the answer they've been seeking ever since it was reported that senior starting quarterback Nick Marshall was cited for marijuana possession last month in Georgia. No, according to head coach Gus Malzahn, Marshall will not be starting the team's season opener against Arkansas. But yes, he will be playing in the game. How much? Tigers supporters probably won't find out that answer until the day itself.

Malzahn also reported that cornerback Jonathan Mincy will not start the game either - he was arrested back in June for marijuana possession.

The decision does not come as a surprise - many expected both players to be punished in some way. We'll see if their early absence benefits the Razorbacks.
