Gene Chizik Fired

Well, looks like we'll have a new head coach leading All-barn next fall. They were terrible this year but my how soon you forget a national title in Alabama! It's like a whole bunch of boosters just like OC40!  ;D

Smart coaches get out when they see a "firestorm" coming.

Which is exactly what happened with Gus Malzahn.

Smart move…….

Even if it costs you $450K per year.

Re: Gene Chizik Fired

Sad that schools like FAU have to play schools like Auburn that can 'afford' to "cut their losses" to the tune of 11.5 MILLION! The money the BigBoys bring in as compared to Belt and the "other" group of 5 programs is just sick! Imagine waht FAU could do to improve the athletic facilities here at FAU with that type of cash just pissed away. Hell, we could redo the basaball stadium real nice AND have the down payment on a new BB arena too!
And on top of that, what type of contract do you think the new HC at Auburn gets? Sick inequities in revenues guys, sick!

The NCAA isn't communist Russia, we all don't deserve the same things. That's like me bitching because I didn't get the Apple stock at $3 a share, Auburn has been in the game a long while and has the support they need to piss away $11mm. This is proof why moving too quick on a HC can be troublesome…Chizik didn't even win the NC with his own guys! Now that his system is in place, it's horrible. Good for us though, they'll be in flux next year when we get em…hopefully we have a QB by then.

That's not true… Cam Netwon, Michael Dyer, Nick Fairley and Emory Blake where all "his guys." Auburn has one of the top recruiting staffs in the country.

Apparently. If you're a booster I think $180,000 was worth a national championship. Of course that figure is way bigger now.  8)
