A recruiting site can be a cheerleader for the team it covers. And who would be a bigger cheerleader than Auburnâ€™s Phillip Marshall? Marshall declared Gene Chizikâ€™s first recruiting weekend a â€œwin.â€ That means Chizik now has a perfect record coaching the Auburn Tigers. 1-0 baby!
That elevates Chizik’s record to a sizzling 6-19!
Can we expect a Peopleâ€™s Recruiting National Championship for coach Chizik?
It didnâ€™t take Marshall long to abandon Tommy Tuberville. Chizikâ€™s approach to recruiting could help Auburn, but Marshall should have taken a deep breath before brown-nosing the new Auburn coach. At least Marshallâ€™s cheerleading is contained on a fan site instead of a major newspaper.
