    Leading candidate for NCAA FB coach of the year

    Has to be Gene Chizik -- the guy that was so bad he could never be successful anywhere. Bastard!

    Re: Leading candidate for NCAA FB coach of the year

    Well, that's what happens when you put a guy in a school that already attracts top recruits. Also, it really helped him a lot when he actually put thought into his coaching staff hires, rather than hiring his fishing buddies. I still don't think he's that great of a coach. It's everyone who he surrounded himself with that makes him look good, IMO.

    Re: Leading candidate for NCAA FB coach of the year

    Just proof that...

    - When Gene 100% wants something, he will get it
    - Gene can be successful when he doesn't hire over matched personnel as assistants
    - Talent at Auburn >>>>>>>> talent at ISU

    Gene is a very good coach. He is also a jerk. A significant number of good coaches are jerks. I would gladly take a winning jerk over a losing nice guy.

    Amazing. A coach who can win games at a school where he has an unlimited budget, top assistants., and the ability to recruit top recruits from the south with ease. What a great coach. I will bow down at his feet.

    Hey, if he's so amazing why the **** did he hire a bunch of losers for assistants at ISU?

    Wait until Gus Malzahn gets a head coaching job somewhere else....then Auburn will be stuck with their currently bad defense and they won't have a great offense.

    Even if Auburn wins a national title this year....it isn't because of Chizik...it is because of the best offensive coordinator in the country and Cam Newton.

    Re: Leading candidate for NCAA FB coach of the year

    Fact of the matter is that Gene could have his same fishing buddies at AU and they would still be competitive due to the caliber of athlete you can attract to AU. ISU can't attract that caliber of athlete across the board....nor will we ever. We need to out discipline and out scheme our opponents and not rely on sheer athleticism. That is why Geno failed at ISU and does well at AU.

    This. Auburn keeps winning because they keep outscoring people. Malzahn is the key...he may get Gene to a BCS bowl this year

    Very true. His Auburn team has no defense, and no discipline. His offense is bailing the team out every game which eventually will catch up to them.

    Re: Leading candidate for NCAA FB coach of the year

    I'll ignore the real intention of this thread and just comment on everyone's response after the OP.

    Auburns has a really solid offense and they are a having a great season but all they've done is knock off the 2nd tier teams(which they are a part of) They still have the SEC big boys, if they knock of Bama or LSU and get to the SEC title game Geno will get some love but for now Chip Kelly is coach of the year, and if Oregon runs the table that won't change. Also keep an eye on Bielema and D'antoni.

    Its freaking bizarre that he loves a coach that went 5-19 at ISU then left us high and dry the first chance he could get. He left us with a 10 game losing streak.

    Re: Leading candidate for NCAA FB coach of the year

    I usually prefer to take a more intellectual approach but...sometimes you just gotta say it like it is.

    Gene Chizik is a pompous jag-off and a terrible coach. His staff at Auburn, no thanks to himself, is outstanding...as is the talent that is easily attracted to that school. In other words, in that situation, Koko the talking gorilla would be 7-0.

    Rebecacy needs to take a deep breath and step away from his Gene Chizik poster that he is staring at. It is amazing his obsession with Gene.

    He's going to have a fun late night alone in his room next week if Auburn knocks off LSU.
