If Bama were 6-6, Chizik would still have job I have a lot of Auburn friends and it was tough watching them suffer through what has been a historically bad (3-9, 0-8 SEC) season. But Auburn's suffering is made exponentially worse by the fact that Alabama is now one victory (against Georgia) away from playing for its third BCS national championship in four seasons. It is painful to be on the losing end of that rivalry in that state. It is painful to turn on the Paul Finebaum Show and listen to the Alabama fans pound on you and make fun of you day after day. It's painful to hear them call you "Little Brother." It's painful when Alabama's Nick Saban takes a knee at the five-yard line (as he did last Saturday) because he feels sorry for you. So you fire the coach, who won a national championship two years ago, and hope somebody new can alleviate the suffering. Good luck with that.
