Gene Chizik apologizes for loss to Arkansas, poor performance

Auburn head coach Gene Chizik was quick to apologize to the Auburn Family after the 24-7 loss to Arkansas, prompting some fans in the stadium to leave the game early.

"The Auburn fans and family didn't deserve this today. I apologize," Chizik said. "We understand where we're at. We've won one game. What I saw out there today was very disappointing versus the quality of our practice and the game. That's on us."

As it became apparent that the Tigers were going to lose, fans began trickling out of Jordan-Hare Stadium before the game ended.{}

"I didn't see the fans leave, but I don't blame them." Chizik said.

And although both quarterbacks Keihl Frazier and Clint Moseley struggled for most of the game, throwing three interceptions combined, Chizik said they shouldn't shoulder all of the blame for the loss.

"I'm not going to blame everything on the quarterback," Chizik said. "We're going to go back and re-evaluate a lot of things.
