You’re alone, Jay.
In the endless flow of Lee County propaganda, does anyone actually believe the blather trickling from the Auburn Athletic Director’s mouth in the press conference announcing Chizik’s new deal?
Apparently Florida didn’t. When the Gators recently needed a new coach, where did they turn? To alumnus Gene Chizik, fresh off of a national championship* in just his second year?
Nope. It appears they saw through the smokescreen too.
Fact is, as Chizik enters his fifth year as a college head coach, in years where his team didn’t buy a once in a lifetime, lightning in a bottle player, his record averages to 4-8.
And for those interested, six months after this player sprinted away in the cover of night for even more money, the NCAA is still investigating why a player would turn down $180,000 at Mississippi State to come to Auburn for free.
Cam is gone; Gus soon will be too. And soon Auburn will be stuck with a Les Miles kind of deal; a bumbling moron they can’t get rid of without breaking the bank. And I, for one, am tickled about it.
Maybe Jay is right. After some stellar (and what many call questionable) recruiting the last couple of years, what excuses will Auburn have if their $3.5 Million dollar man doesn’t produce at least nine wins this season?
