He has had 2 undefeated seasons as an Auburn coach. This fact alone should calm the senseless down.
A few plays go our way, and we could easily have a 3-2 season right now.
If not for fumble(s) in the Clemson game, and dropped pass in the LSU game, we knock both those top 25 teams off.
Some of you can cry and baby if you want, be miserable.
I'm not, I'm standing strong with Gene Chizik. He is our Coach, he is an Auburn man, he loves Auburn. He is a great coach. He has already won 2 National Championships (should be 3 including the perfect season in 2004), and he isn't finished.
WAR DAMN EAGLE!
He is also 4-14 against Ark, LSU, Georgia, and Bama. Don't start bragging just yet!

Well yeh, it turns out we play in the hardest conference in college football. The group of teams you listed have been fixtures in the top 10.
Maybe those fumbles and int's do not occur if players are more fundamentally sound. That is coaching and he is the Head Coach. I cannot tell you how many times I see our backs carrying the ball in the wrong arm and being vulnerable to fumbles.
He has one undefeated season at Auburn as head coach due in very large part to a quarterback he initially refused to recruit...
If we stopped Trent Richardson in 2009 on a 30 yard run, Texas would most likely have another National Championship. If Auburn doesn't come from behind against 7 teams in 2010, we don't even make a bowl game. We don't live in a world of ifs.
I'm not miserable. I'm damn angry that our athletics director gave a guy who wasn't a threat to leave a $10 million buyout. And I'm damn angry that our head football coach has an ego the size of the sun and it's blinding him to his own ignorance.
You go ahead and stand beside Chizik. When you are neck deep in quicksand, I'll still be a gentleman and give you my hand. Also, Doug Barfield loved Auburn but not sure you'd want him running your football program.
I'm sorry but I hate when fans play the "WHAT IF" game with orange & blue blinders. WHAT IF Clemson hadn't dropped 4-5 passes, 2 of which they could have been Touchdowns? Then they would have won by a lot more. I mean play the "What if" game all you want, but why ignore the fact that there is ANOTHER side of the "What If" stuff you are throwing out there? That is all.
To reverse the same argument many naysayers are giving. Ultimate responsibilty is the head coach, and ultimately Gene Chizik decided to take Cam Newton.
Is it wrong for Chizik to question taking Cam Newton, with the off the field issues he had at Florida?
Ultimately Gene Chizik accepted a commitment from Cam Newton, and Gene Chizik ultimately won the National Championship.
I agree. And Gene Chizik has also meddled with the offensive gameplans starting last year and he's meddled with the defensive side of the ball since he's been here which is one of many reasons our defense hasn't performed to our expectations. Chizik felt like he didn't get the credit he deserved for winning in 2010. I'm just telling you the way it is. The guy has an enormous ego and it's turned a lot of his assistants off. That's not to say the assistants are all made of humble pie. If you don't believe me, maybe you'll believe Tracy Rocker if you can get him to talk to you...
We should be a top 10 team consistently. Chiz has got to be better than hes been 8-4 is not good enough if it is pull for ark florida not auburn.
