Iron Bowl: Auburn Coach Gene Chizik previews game with Alabama


Auburn Football Coach Gene Chizik previewed the Iron Bowl game against Alabama in this audio clip. You can listen to the clip in the above player, and below is a brief summary of the press conference.

Auburn’s football coach said he expects a tough challenge in this game. “the Iron Bowl is one of the greatest rivalries in college football,” Chizik said.

He said his players and staff are looking forward to this game against Alabama.

Chizik was asked about the possible return of Urban Meyer to coaching college football. He said he was focused on the upcoming game and declined to make any further statement.

Chizik was asked about dealing with a “young team” when something negative happens. Chizik said the key is “to try to respond immediately with something positive for your team.”

Chizik was asked about the run defense and the ability to stop running backs in big games like Marcus Lattimore and Mark Ingram. Chizik said stopping Alabama’s Trent Richardson would be a goal of his defense.

“He is a great running back and he has a great offensive line,” Chizik said. “There is no question that the #1 job responsibility for our defense to give ourself a chance to win is to stop their running game.”

The same reporter asked Chizik if the past success stopping Ingram “a couple of years ago” gave his team confidence going into this game. Chizik said his team is “confident” in every game.

    It’s interesting that you could think otherwise. The only thing that could keep Bama out is if Both Arky and LSU move ahead of Bama, But according to the majority of pundits with LSU only having half a point lead over Bama and losing to a team Bama slaughtered they would drop to #3 and Bama would go to Atlanta. Even if Bama dropped to 3rd Arky would still have to beat Georgia to keep Bama out of New Orleans. Sure, any thing is possible when idiots vote or program computers. That is why as I have said many times this past week – Bama just needs to forget about Atlanta, have LSU win today and go whip their asses in New Orleans for the big prize. Tell you one damn thing, there is no hitting going on every single play in this game like there was in T-Town. That was a phucking M.a.S.H. unit show.

    Anyway, I am not and never have been convinced that Arky is any better than the team we destroyed. The talking heads always let their mouths overload their asses just to hear themselves talk. I fully expect LSU will win this game with a similar margin to Bama.

      Interesting what time you posted this comment Crimsonite, after you’ve watch LSU come back from the initial 14 point deficit! Youre a joke Crimsonite!

    FYI

    In a three way tiebreaker situation, here’s the way I look at it. Bama’s loss was at home, whereas Arkansas lost on the road.

  5. 9
    Crimsonite

    FYI for Christ’s sake why are you spewing out stupid opinions when the whole nation has been discussing the ACTUAL SEC rules that govern. Damn. If Arky wins and LSU and Arky are #1 and #2 in any order the tie breaker is head to head and Arky would go by virtue of winning today. If Bama and Arky are #1 and #2 in any order the tie breaker is head to head and Bama would go. LSU at #3 would be irrelevant. and that is LSU’s biggest fear. If LSU wins today and Bama and LSU are #1 and #2 in any order then the tie braker puts LSU in Atlanta which is exactly what I want because that guarantees Bama in New Orleans after we whip ya’lls ass tomorrow. I hope that is simple enough for Awbie English 101. RTR!

    There you have it sports fans. Everything else is moot. Rematch on Jan 9th. As in nearly every common opponent this year the point spread was exactly the same as Alabama’s. Gonna be a hell of a party in New Orleans. RTR!

    Just give me the win over the doormat Barner’s and I’ll worry about BCS rankings later – anyone who’s a fan knows how a rivalry game can go out of your hands and hit you in the soul with high hits to the soul – nothing is solidified in stone until the end of the 60:00 min. Let’s go out there and put around 80,000’+ barners make that shitty drive home up 280 drinking light beer in their sorrows – lmfao!

      I could care less if you win or lose that game. You’ll either get embarassed by the Tigers today or on January 9th if the voters decide Bama should be there over a conference champion.

    LSU looked like a team desperate to keep from getting knocked out of the BCSNG altogether. I see your piece of shyt coach has sold his soul, morals and personal values to Satan. What happened to the QB who got you where you are? He can’t even get playing time in a blowout anymore. Less Than Mild has shown his true colors. To play for a National championship he has no sense of right and wrong. He’s phucking over Lee for a criminal who should have been kicked off the team. I saw Honey Suck My Dick Badger have a great game against a one dimensional offense, He also gave up some really stupid big plays. Let’s see, what was it did he did against Bama other than a cheap hit on Kirkpatrick? Answer – nothing! His ass is marked on Jan 9th. See ya in our other home stadium as the winningest team in the history of New Orleans.Record 8-5 and 7 National Championships there! LSU record 6-7 and 1 National championship. See Ya, fool! RTR!

    What a waste of time post dumbass. You motherphuckers are as bad as Florida when it comes to quoting edited statistics to make you look good. You think I couldn’t come up with a list like that and even better if I was a phucking homer loser with an inferiority complex. Bama doesn’t quote that kind of shyt in an argument. Our history is our argument. Your phucking team is a flash in the pan team of the moment. First we will take away your dream on Jan 9th and then while you wallow in obscurity during most of the years to come, we will be back over and over and over again. Phucking swamp rat Corndog fool! RTR!

    You don’t see shit because you crimson glasses are too dark. LSU looked liked a desperate team? LMFAO. They looked like exactly what they are, the best team in America, and everybody in the entire country knows it but you idiots in Alabama.

    The QB who got us where we are is still on the team ready to contiune to help his team and teamates, including Jefferson when called upon. Jefferson was duly punished for what he did even though you would like it to be more because you are scared. If not you wouldn’t keep metioning him playing instesd of Lee. It kills you that we have three quaterbacks better than your starter. Tell Kirkpatrick to protect himself at all times, it football bitch. And besides the hit wasn’t even that hard, Kirkpatrick must be a wuss. I don’t know where you made up that 6-7 record for LSU in New Orleans. Hell Miles is 3-0 in New Orleans alone.

      And oh yea if you do get lucky enough to play us again, please go get you a kicker, so you won’t have any excuses in your own little mind this time. Even though a kicker is part of the team, just as much as the tight end or any other player is, and if ours is better than yours and that makes our team better than yours, well just cry all you want to bitch!

    For all of you Gaddamn haters and fantasizers, I got bad phucking news for your asses. With a 1.1 point lead over OSU it is impossible for them to catch Bama short of losing to Awbie. Since the Big 12 has no championship game there is no way for OSU to make up points on Bama – much less a monstrous 1.1 in just one game. The stupid phuckers who hate just make themselves look retarded by referencing OSU playing OU next week while Bama sits. Stupid motherphuckers. OSU is sitting this week while Bama plays in the Iron Bowl. The gap will widen tomorrow and then narrow a week from tomorrow. But never in hell 1.1 points. The USAToday coaches and the elite voters in the Harris Poll aren’t stupid. Bama who has the greatest defense of all time, outplayed and lost by an OT field goal to #1 LSWho. OSU got outplayed and lost by a touchdown to a 5-4, 27 point underdog and they have the phucking 108th ranked defense. The only way they will even sniff New Orleans is by arriving a week early and getting their asses stomped by Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. RTR!

    Thank you very much asshole, we did just that. Just had the nations #1 kicker commit for next year. Yeah and if not for Miles you would be 3-7 in New Orleans. Didn’t say you didn’t play like #1. Said you played with desperation. And don’t say you didn’t. Cause if you had lost it would have been Bama and Arky in New Orleans Jan 9th. Of course we don’t agree with all the asshole opinions around the country. WE ARE BAMA! We win Championships. We know who is really the best. We are entitled. We will whip your asses. Anything else you want to know Shyt For Brains? RTR!

    Dickonite you show just how stupid you are with that first comment. Its not impossible, next week when Bama is sitting at home because they weren’t good enough to play for their conference championship and Oklahoma State is playing a game that could win them the Big 12 championship, the voters could decide if they win that game that they would rather see two conference champions play for the National Championship.

    Rember Ok. St. is already ahead of Alabama in 5 of the 7 computers used in the BCS rankings.

    I’m not saying that will happen, and I don’t care if it does or not, I’m just saying your comment that it is impossible is stupid! Just go back and look at 2007

    Find something else to run your phucking mouth about. I typed that post when the score was 14-7 Arkansas and got in a serious conversation with a Nebraska fan and forgot to press send. I said all week LSU would kick their ass. Nobody who doesn’t need bullshyt to attract readers really thought Arky was any better than when they played Bama. Hell Ole Miss stomped their asses for 45 minutes. RTR!

    This aint 2007 and Alabama hasn’t lost twice to shyt teams you dumb phuck. And OSU losing like they did and having the worst defense in history shows just how phucking stupid the computer programers are. They haven’t even played a phucking ranked team either. The computer should straighten their asses out this week. The game is about the two best teams, not about favorites or winners of shyt Conference Championships. Why don’t you phuckers just go on and put Conference USA Champion Houston in New Orleans if that’s how you think – they are a Gaddamn undefeated conference champion you dumbasses. The two human polls have Bama hell and gone ahead of OSU. OSU isn’t even #4 in those polls. The voters aren’t stupid. Well, some of them are, but not enough to make a difference. RTR!

    Keep on dreaming you retarded MF’s. You and OSU and Stanford can all go to la la land together. From what I’ve been reading this morning the majority of Pundits think there is a greater chance of OSU jumping LSU if you lose to Georgia than there is of them jumping Alabama if everybody wins out. Bwaa haww haww! Anyway, OU is going to stomp shyt out of OSU just like they are presently stomping shyt out of ISU the team who whipped OSU last week. Dumb phucks. RTR! Hey, anybody know how to get hold of Updyke. I’d like to take him to the game with me and go roll Toomers with him later. ROTFLMMAO!!!!

    I have come to the conclusion Flash is obsessed with Bama and us on this site to the point he doesn’t play Warcraft or frequent the teenie porn sites anymore. Judging from his posts he is a 47 year old overweight no bath taking corndog shoving living with his mom driving a 87 honda prelude little boy in a pediophiles old body. All the LSU guys out here are pissed the possibility is high they will have to face us again. Turn the tables and they would demand a rematch. But it is what it is. Don’t be mad flash cause I described you to a t. My younger brother plays Warcraft,I can get you in his guild if you like. Just make sure it is ok with your mommy chump. See you in a few days big boy. That’s right flash I am a fat redneck bama man. Damn proud of it. REAULX TIDE.
