Gene Chizik is a freaking idiot, according to Georgia signee

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting some of the hilarity taking place in Auburn these days, and it’s hard to believe this story isn’t getting more play. did pick it up, but this should be front page news.

It really is hard to take Auburn seriously, but this makes it even harder.

Georgia signee Jordan Jenkins, interviewed about his recruitment, said he didn’t sign with Alabama because he didn’t have a connection with Alabama head coach Nick Saban. Truth be known he didn’t want to work to “unbury” himself on the depth chart.

But then he said this…I hope you’re not eating as you read this:

“When coach Gene Chizik was comparing Auburn and Alabama…”

STOP THERE. Can you imagine ever, in hundred years, Nick Saban ever COMPARING Alabama to Auburn as part of his recruiting strategy? The man who preaches to his players while preparing for an opponent, “It’s not about them, it’s about us”?

Talk to any Aubie and eventually comparisons are all you’ll get as they try to legitimize their fledgling football program. Now we know it comes from the top.

Okay, now back to the interview:

“He (Chizik) put up a slide that showed they had more wins, more this and that…”

What the…?? According to the 2012 BCS National Championship Media Guide, Alabama’s current overall record in 117 seasons is: 813-320-43, a .717 winning percentage.

According to a recent Auburn media guide, Auburn’s record in 120 seasons is: 711-394-41, a .643 winning percentage.

Alabama owns the edge on the head-to-head series 41-34-1. Basically Auburn would have to win the next seven in a row against NICK SABAN fresh off his newly renewed contract (which has him in Tuscaloosa through 2020) JUST TO TIE the series. There’s a better chance of Alabama winning the next seven in a row itself.

Truthfully speaking, if you’re an Auburn fan reading this article, the likelihood is that you will probably die having never seen Auburn even tie the series, let alone overcome the 112 game overall deficit they currently bear to the University of Alabama in the win column…and that despite having played the game 3 more seasons than the Tide.

I’d love to see that slide the Chiz put in front of Jordan Jenkins, but I’d love even more to know what the man is smoking. If I had to put money on it, what Auburn’s version of Mike Dubose was referring to was the series record since Bear Bryant died…a.k.a. to Auburn fans as “when time began.” It must be terribly confusing to children in Auburn families studying world history since their families don’t believe time existed before 1982.

But it gets better, as Jenkins went on:

“Then he (Gene Chizik) started talking about Florida and how Will Muschamp follows in his shoes. I started busting out laughing. He said ‘When I was at Auburn the first time [as an assistant] and after I left, Muschamp came here. Then I was at Texas and after I left, Muschamp came there.’ He went on and on. He said ‘Muschamp just follows in my footsteps’ and it was hilarious the way he said it.”

Does anybody take Gene Chizik seriously? Does anybody see what happened in 2010 as more than just a complete fluke? A flash in the pan?

And if you’re an Auburn fan, do you really lay your head on your pillow at night confident that your program isn’t the house of cards that everybody…including top recruits not accepting payment…KNOWS it to be?

    You say never in a million years would Alabama make comparisons to Auburn, but that’s exactly what you’re doing in this entire article. Some things are better left unsaid.

      Correction, I said “can you imagine Nick Saban making the comparison.”

      Some of that is inevitable in reporting a story like this, but the only way you don’t want this story told is if you’re an Aubie ashamed of the sham you have as a head coach.

    An Alabama website writing articles about Auburn?

    Can’t get Auburn out of your head, can you?

    Albert I know logical reason is probably out of the question but lets give it a try anyway. I am sure that ITK wrote this article to point out just how laughable chizNik is and how it is not just Alabama fans but also student athletes that he is trying to recruit that know this. Now back to that nasty little “reason” thing. If you are an auburoid (which your obvious intellect points to making such assumptions) you most certainly have REASONS to be concerened. The process continues. Accept that reality and have a nice day.

      Eric, actually he thought it was a funny joke. If you read the article linked, the kid was laughing at the joke Chizik made about Muschamp.
      I know reading comprehension isn’t exactly Alabama’s strength though.

        Now that was an original reply. Well done Albert. Did you think of that all on your own? Does anyone including Jordan Jenkins not think chizNik is laughable? Here is some comprehension that even you can understand. Interviewer: Whats the funniest thing during recruiting? Jenkins: first chizNik was making comparisons to Bama,(very funny I would agree) secondly he started talking about Muschamp following him around like a lost puppy. At first he(Jenkins) started busting out laughing and thinking he (chizNik) was on a roll “he went on and on” Jenkins wasnt laughing with chizNik, chinNik was laughing with him. Please please please continue to support chizNik, never waiver from a strong commitment to him, all of The Bama Nation is behind you.

    Why would Auburn fans be ashamed of their coach anyways? He won them a national championship. Even if he has a few down years it’s ok, his time was valuable because of what he accomplished. If it’s time to move on then so be it…that’s the nature of the business. You guys really need to have a few hobbies outside of Alabama football.

  5. 10

    Get a hobby? There is no hobby better than Alabama football, fool. The next best hobby is bitch slapping Barnturds. So what’s your excuse asswipe, for being on an Alabama blog site? Don’t you have a hobby? Barneyville is our most hated rival, and your joke of a coach just made a fool out of his own self. What else would we want to talk about? Bwaa haww haww! What’s more, Cheeze Dick didn’t win any National Championship. A once in a lifetime criminal asswipe of a quarterback that Aubie won in a Lottery, carried your asses on his back to that accident of a National Championship. Cheeze Dick didn’t have a phucking thing to do with it. He just climbed on board for the ride looking as dumb and befuddled as ever. He didn’t have a phucking clue. You bastards are now irrelevant except for making us laugh by being the butt of our jokes. Think maybe you’ll be able to keep us under 40 this year? I don’t! Bwaa haww haww! RTR!

      I don’t know about that. Football is a nice distraction but it’s not really a hobby. There is no personal substance to it. You don’t do anything or make anything or accomplish anything, you just watch. It’s nice but there are better more constructive possibilities.

      • 12

        Hobbies are a relaxing and pleasant way to kill significant time such as a weekend. Fishing would be a hobby. Constructing model cars, painting or playing the guitar can be considered a hobby. You could kill the weekend by going to a local collegiate football game and enjoying yourself by making some new friends, chatting about old college days or your favorite games.

        Pointing out the deficiencies in the rival school of your state is as much of a hobby as slapping mosquitoes while camping is a hobby. When your state rival is Auburn it doesn’t take that much time but is sometimes a necessity to continue enjoying what you love to do. The little biters are a nuisance, no doubt, but will never amount to anything as long as you keep slapping the cow patties out of them any time they get anywhere close.

    Don’t know what the hell is wrong with this site. I had a great post to add to this thread and somehow it went to the thread about Petrino’s motorcycle accident. So if ya’ll want to read it you’ll have to go over there because I can’t cut and paste with this cell phone. Also it keeps changing my phucking avatars to an older one and then back again to my Corndog. Poltergeist??? RTR!

    LMAO@ Chiziroid and the Barntards.He must of been showing replays of the Shula years when he put bounties on Brodie Croyle.

  8. 16

    There you go again dude. I think your problem is that you have a limited vocabulary and no imagination. If you really feel that way about football then why are you on our sports blog dissing a thread about a retarded coach? Are you scitzophrenic? RTR?

      Somebody sent me the article to read and the rest is just boredom. I don’t mind a little spirited debate, it’s entertaining until the attacks start getting vicious and personal. I prefer a more civil debate. Alabama is a good school and they have a great football team. Auburn is a good school and their football team is down right now. That’s really all there is to it.

    You don’t sound like you’re from Alabama nor a fan of Bama or Barnie. Either that or you’re one of the silent minority in this State. It matters not if you think either, both or neither is a good school and if one or the other is in a down period. Being down here is being at the mercy of ravenous carnivores. This is the most hated rivalry in all of sports. There is no slack cut. Being down is nothing short of being wounded in the street and ready for a good curb stomping. ‘Aint no mercy here. However, I have noticed that you aren’t being abusive and haven’t taken the bait. Therefore I’ll try to be more civil. But you’re wrong about football, as far as it goes in Alabama. Sports have become a doorway to pride for a huge percentage of people here. The South has been looked down on and shit on for so long that to have the very best of anything is extremely important. Maybe we can’t say we have the best educational system or the highest per capita income; but by God we have the best football team in the world.

      Crimsonite I tend to agree with you about John H. John we could try to explain it but I doubt you would ever understand. That is not a cheap shot at you by any means however if a person has never experienced the venom that exist in this rivalry there is no possible way for that person (regardless of who they may be) to ever understand. It cannot be explained, you must be a part of it.

    JohnH- You know good and well Chizik didn’t have anything to with that 28-27 win #2 did. Now on the other hand he did have plenty to do with that 42-14 loss. And that hurt-then and now. RTR

  11. 21

    Let’s see… which method of recruiting is working the best? Chizik’s slide show on Auburn Math™, or Sabans path to the NFL and Bama’s trophy case?

  12. 22

    When has Auburn won more games OVERALL than Alabama? Chizik is 1-2** vs UA, soon to be 1-3**. Is he still trying to live off the accomplishments of Tuberville who beat pathetic Alabama teams??

    **-Cam Newton was sold to Auburn, thus should have made him ineligible as an amateur athlete. NCAA sanctions paid off by Bobby Lowder & The War Eagle Supper Club

  13. 23

    Chiswick is no longer relevant (really hasn’t been since $cam bolted for the NFL to lead the Panthers into the cellar). With 3-9, 0-8, and now 49-0 in 2012, he is gone. No more dentist shirts, chest bumping, and “All In” rhetoric. It was funny though while it was around.
