Y'know...if you'd like to know a little bit about the coach that Auburn just hired, why not read about him from the people that know him best? Like the Iowa State writer for the Cyclone Report.
Yes, that line did read "...Nick Saban will probably floss with Gene Chizik on an annual basis."
Wow. Iowa State...yes, I said Iowa State...was ready to fire this guy after 2 seasons. Nobody saw progress. The team got progressively worse during his tenure. He just lost 10 straight ballgames. Now, don't get me wrong, I mean he did play in the Big 12 with Texas, Oklahoma, and Texas Tech, who are all top 10 teams this year.
...Wait. He didn't play any of those teams this year?
So, wait. What was his schedule?
South Dakota State W 44-17 Kent W 48-28 Iowa L 5-17 UNLV L 31-34 Kansas L 33-35 Baylor L 10-38 Nebraska L 7-35 Texas A&M L 35-49 Oklahoma State L 17-59 Colorado L 24-28 Missouri L 20-52 Kansas State L 30-38
Ok. Seriously? That's what we're looking at?
Now, you should get the sense now that they're going to bring in some people for his coaching staff that know a little bit of what they're doing, because it's obvious this cat doesn't have a clue.
You remember they talked to Rodney Garner from Georgia? I believe that's his name. You know...the guy that was fired from Auburn back when Bowden was there. The guy that was accused of buying players. Yeah. That guy. He was interviewed...one would assume for the head coaching spot. My guess is he'll be brought in as the recruiting coordinator. You wanna compete with Saban in recruiting? The only way Auburn knows how is to pull out the checkbook. Garner would be great at that.
Next up would be Patrick Nix. He'll be brought in as offensive coordinator. He was so great at Georgia Tech, and this year at Miami. We should really be trembling with fear. I guess. Or something like that.
Like I said, I'm trying not to laugh too much.
