Barrett Trotter 'Retiring' from Auburn

Barrett Trotter has decided to forgo his senior season at Auburn, keep his bachelor's degree and continue pursuit on his Master's.

"My four years at Auburn has been a great experience and I'm thankful for the opportunities that I've had, however, I have decided to forgo my senior season," Trotter said in a statement. "I'm truly blessed to have been a part of winning seasons and championships during my time at Auburn."

Said Gene Chizik: "Barrett is a great young man who ended his career in a fitting way by helping lead our team to victory in the Chick-fil-A Bowl," Chizik said. "We are very appreciative to Barrett for his contributions to Auburn, both on and off the field, and wish him nothing but the best."

I must admit, it takes a lot of fortitude to call it a day like this. While Trotter's stock has skyrocketed again since the Chick fil A bowl, the competition for next year at QB will be tremendous. We're certainly going to miss his senior leadership.

I'm sure all Auburn fans will always hold Trotter in high regard for his four years with the program. Good luck, Barrett. And don't ever let em give you sh*t about that beard.

Trotter's Signature win? Utah State, Miss State, South Carolina, Florida or Virginia? Discuss.
