    Re: Happy Gene

    That is what I was thinking. He never really showed any enthusiasm for the job at ISU. He was going to leave as soon as he could, and boy did he. Thankfully.

    Re: Happy Gene

    Even at the rally when he was announced, I thought he looked clueless, uncomfortable, and stunned - as did his wife. Almost like, "I know nothing about this place and don't really care. But what I do know is that I'm getting paid a million bucks a year, so whatever."

    Kind of how he and his whole staff looked on the sidelines during games.

    Re: Happy Gene

    Keep in mind, he didn't need to win over our fanbase. He is heading to Auburn with a 5-19 HCing record and HAS to win people over.

    Agreed. He had us at "Hello", but not Auburn.

    There are a number of people magically showing up in the "I never liked Gene" camp. Where were they before?

    I was fooled by him. Up until last week, I still believed in him. I did not like only 5 wins or the loses to Kent State, UNI, Toledo and UNLV - nor the lost to KU this year.

    But I felt he could get it done. Fooled me - will admit it.

    I thought the business-like attitude was just how he operated.

    Chiznutless has caused me to lose a little faith in collegiate athletics. He's also caused me guilt, guilt in that our fanbase gave that a-hole more respect than DMac. We actually came to games we knew we were going to lose and probably lose big.

    I thought as the days went on my anger would lessen, but it hasn't, it's only intensified. I hate Chiznutless and I hate the word hate. If I were a gypsy I'd put a curse on that a-hole. I hope he fails and fails badly.

    I don’t understand that, “I’m home” stuff. Chizik is from Clearwater, FL and a graduate of the University of Florida. Auburn is 460 miles (7 Ĺ hour drive) from Clearwater. I don’t say, “I’m home” when I’m in Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis, or Chicago; or when I'm at the University of Iowa.

    Maybe just getting out of the North's cold winter weather is enough to say he is home.
