    Re: Breaking News: Gene Chizik fired!

    I hope he is able to find something soon, I do hate seeing someone lose a job. I feel bad for his family and the players.



    Now the fans...I don't feel bad for.

    Re: Breaking News: Gene Chizik fired!

    On a personal level, you do have to have a bit of compassion when anyone loses a job and especially in this economy. But maybe I'm just different.

    As an evangelical I was put off by God references coming in a situation where GC either knew Auburn was crooked or is more blind than Helen Keller. I'm consistent: I hated it when a certain former coach of ours did virtually the same thing.

    Chizik maintained no true divine honor in this situation. He either went along with dirty deeds or should not have answered in his non-answering way the Cam Newton allegations. I took particular offense because I don't think you take something in the toilet and put ketchup on it and that makes it ok. I'll admit to being a little put out with a few of the comments here that will suggest that because Gene is a believer that trumps all. Gene then needs to resign in the name of integrity (ok too late for that), turn down the money changers millions dollar buyout and go share his faith in a soup kitchen. This tale was more sordid because Cecil Newton also hid behind religion. Should I therefore conclude now that God was okay with Auburn's cheating but abandoned Gene and Auburn like Saul and the armor bearer over some unspecified worse sin?

    I do not respect anyone who cornered invokes God as if that cuts off all inquiry or makes wrong right. Dubious did that and now Gene. If you're going to claim more virtue then you need to show it else you shouldn't claim it.

    Sorry if I preached or crossed the line. No offense was intended.

    Re: Breaking News: Gene Chizik fired!

    I hate he got fired. I really looked forward to total domination the next few years. Not that I see it changing anytime soon. I'm sure Chizik will survive getting $7.5m over the next few years. He'll be a analyst on ESPN for a couple of years and be back into the coaching carousel. Loerfler and VanGorder will be just fine too. Luper and Trooper need to get out of the profession. They really do kids a disservice IMO. I wonder if this investigation will tie any wrongdoings to those two coaches.

    That buyout is huge for an athletic department that has not made money in years.

    Also, what is Pat Sullivan doing on this committee? How can the Samford athletic department be fine with this?

    He'll get at least $156,250 per month for the next 48 months if he doesn't work. Don't feel too bad for him.

    No... it's just message board drivel.

    I don't get it. 5-19 gets you hired, but 33-19 gets you fired...

    I'm a lot more worried about the guy's dad at Hostess than I am about Chizik's financial future.

    1) Is Saban a prospective Auburn hire?

    No.


    Then in all sincerity - why do we even care?

    It didn't make sense then, but it sure makes sense now.
