How far-fetched is it that Chizik knew the NCAA was coming for the Barn and wanted to get fired?
nita - Roll Tide Roll!
I think he got fired due to bad roster management, player development, and a brain-drain amongst his offensive staff that basically kept them competitive in '09 and '11 as far as the wins column goes.
The more I think about it, the stronger the similarity between Chizik and Kaiser Soze. You have the unwitting stooge turning the tables on a bunch of unscrupulous miscreants, leaving them in a wake of chaos and destruction while he walks into the sunset with a cool $10M.
1st post, but I believe troopa is there so awbern can sacrifice him to the ncaa.
Trooper is there because they've got to maintain communication lines with their recruits, even if the coaching situation is up in the air. Imagine the catastrophe if they just canned everyone at the Barn. I will be shocked if the new head coach keeps Trooper around.
I would think that Petrino is desperate enough to agree to keeping BVG, Trooper and Luper. And with that said, look for Petrino on the plains sooner than later.
