Looking at this information, Kodi did a better job of moving the offense.  He was a lot less likely to have a drive netting less than 10 yards.  Everything else they are relatively close with Kodi faring better in almost all areas.  Todd is slightly better in points per drive, but if you factor in missed field goals, they are both the same.  Again, both looked bad and we need improvement, but if you look at it from this point of view, Kodi moved the ball better than Todd. Right now it sounds like Caudle is separating himself from the pack with Trotter working with the 2′s and Kodi being very inaccurate this spring. Todd will get another shot this summer when his shoulder should be 100% from the surgery this past December. Don’t count out Moseley and Rollison who will stepping onto the plains this summer. May the best man win. War Eagle

This year’s game will be Nov. 27 at 1:30 p.m. in Jordan-Hare Stadium. The 2010 game will be Nov. 26 in Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. It will be the sixth Iron Bowl played on a Friday, according to Auburn.
