1. What percentage chance Chizik is fired?
2. What percentage would you put on Auburn hiring a quality guy who our fans, the press, and other coaches would view as a coach worthy of the Auburn job?

Phillip, you're exactly right. I'm really just talking about what the conventional wisdom will be after this hire. I would imagine Gus would be a decent hire and anything worse would be considered a bust and anything better is a success. I'd put Jimbo, Stoops, Smart, Sumlin, and Strong well above Gus. I might put Freeze higher too.
Today, the chances of Chizik being back are about 50/50.
It was about 1% 3 weeks ago. What changed? I don't know.
Those close to the situation will tell you that Chizik doesn't think he's going anywhere, and those who would fire him are inclined to give him another year.
It hasnt been 50/50 for weeks. Still not close to that.
Fans, the press, and other coaches should have absolutely zero input on coaching changes, what a mess that would be.
I agree and laugh at those who have been saying we will be universally happy with the next hire. I do not think that is even possible. There are some hires that would be less devisive than others, but, most will bring a heap of praise and a heap of worry at the same time.
