    Re: Breaking News: Gene Chizik fired!

    I don't feel bad for the staff they all helped in the disaster over there. If you do not do your job or just plain aren't good at it I understand you should be fired. It's not like these folks are going to be living out of a cardboard box anytime soon. It's the nature of the profession they got themselves into.

    They will all get jobs again relatively soon.

    I do hate to see them go though. I sure was enjoying the superb floundering going on over that way.

    I just wonder if they go after a Defensive minded coach or Offensive minded coach.
    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.

    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    Don't feel sorry for anyone associated with API.

    They Paid Cam & got away with it, won A Title because of it.

    Now they get what they deserve, yes even Cheese, you know he knew!

    This All In, We Are Family, It's a God thing, was just over the top & cultish. Cheese lead the way on this.

    The gator forums think UCF will try to hire Chizik. He may not be out of a job soon.

    Seeing the names on that list makes me realize how crazy we looked back in the day when 'bama websites listed all those "pie in the sky" names that wanted to be head coaches.

    $11 million; that is a lot of pocket change. These guys get paid to get it done on the field. They chose this profession, knowing up front, if they don't perform, they will not survive. I don't see any need for sympathy. Chizik will walk with enough money to live great for the rest of his life, and his assistants are not exactly headed to the soup lines. Chizik may be a good guy, I really don't know. The barn made the poor decision to bring him in as a head coach and he made an even worse decision to take a job he could not handle.
    Look for them to be courting Jim Bo Fisher and Charlie Strong; not that they will land either one.

    Take it for what it's worth, which is what I plan to do, but an AU friend says the defensive coordinator will survive this and stick at AU, if he chooses, and will be given veto power over any head coach decision. He hates Petrino.
