For the first time since he was cited for possession of marijuana on July 11, Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall addressed the media Sunday. Per ESPN:
quote:

"I made a mistake and I'm just trying to gain the trust back from my coaches, my teammates and Auburn's fans," Marshall told reporters. "I'm just going to accept my punishment with open hands.

"The incident that happened is just going to change me and make [me] a better man."

Marshall apologized to his teammates immediately after the incident and said he also had a "man-to-man conversation" with Auburn coach Gus Malzahn in the time since.
As punishment from coach Gus Malzahn, Marshall will not start the season opener against Arkansas. Backup Jeremy Johnson is expected to start in Marshall's place.
