Alabama wasn’t just dominating Monday night. They were some word that has yet to be invented in the English language. - Aaron Torres, Jan 10th, 2012
"If this was a prize fight, they'd call it off!" - Brent Musberger, Jan 7th, 2013
"Alabama, back on top of the College Football world!" - Chris Fowler, Jan 11th, 2016
Well there you have it. Auburn fans rejoicing. Wonder if they'll roll toomers?
I told everyone in the post-game thread to check the Sunday paper obituaries and you will see that Gene Chiziks job and Auburn football has died. Cause of death: An hour long mauling by Saban and Co.

Meh, who didn't see this coming? Now it's just official
At Some Places They Play Football.
At Alabama, We LIVE It.
"...Ain't nothin' but a winner."
They're all in now. Watch Chiz roll over on them.
You'll get no gloating over this from me. Never like to see anyone lose a job. Particularly since other families' Income is tied to this. Leoffler & VanGorder just moved their families and now here they go again. No love for Auburn, but from a human side I feel for them. Not to mention Chizik losing his mother in the midst of all this.
But the coaching profession being what it is, I know they'll all land on their feet somewhere.
"I didn't come to Alabama to win 10 games a year and be a contender. I came here to win championships. Conference championships and national championships. I love it here because that's just not what I want, but what this fanbase expects."

Not to many coaches are going to survive at Auburn when they lose two years in a row to Bama by a combined score of 91-14. Best of luck to Chizik. He may be a grade A dufus, but I think he's actually a decent human being. Hopefully he lands on his feet somewhere
