You know, we almost, sorta joke about how Monk Malloy tried to kill ND football while he was president of the university. Certain Auburn officials, who clearly hate football and really want to kill it, must have been watching his Machiavellian ways and decided that subtlety and patience were for pansies, so they replaced Tommy Tuberville, a man for whom I hold no admiration and barely any respect, with Gene Chizik.
Let that sink in.
probably don’t may not know who Gene Chizik is. He’s the now-former-head-coach of Iowa State’s football team. The same Iowa state that hasn’t won a game since September, and even then it was only a victory against a I-AA team. In 2 years as HC of Iowa State, Chizek “managed” a 5-19 record.
And this all comes after Chizek practically wiped out his entire staff just 2 weeks ago.
Surely it’s Chizik’s work before he took the Cyclones job that really impressed Auburn, right? Well, actually, that was Chizik’s first stint as a head coach anywhere. But he did have pretty impressive success as the Auburn DC a few years ago, so maybe he left the administration with fond memories. I don’t know.
Auburn fans, you’ve been put on notice: Auburn University doesn’t want to play football any more.
