    Interesting take on Cheese Dip from SI.com

    Auburn Tigers' Gene Chizik is America's most fascinating coach - Andy Staples - SI.com

    I think he has an interesting take on success in coaching. Of course, he takes the requisite shot at Iowa State (hard place to win, etc.).

    Personally, and I know there are many who will back me, I hope Cheese Dip has an epic fail on the Plains.

    Re: Interesting take on Cheese Dip from SI.com

    Never really thought about it before but it's probably very very easy to be a Texas or Auburn defensive coordinator. I'm not really second guessing why we hired him in the first place but shouldn't Iowa State be considering coaches who coach average players up and find the diamonds in the rough? Chizik was used to putting 4 and 5 star recruits on the field and letting them dominate, it definitely didn't look like he knew how to deal with our lower level players.

    He Petered out... How many losses does Auburn take before the seat gets hot? Would they let him keep the reigns after finishing 3-9 or 2-10??? Doubt it.

    My guess is he'll do ok at Auburn and end up being there for awhile. He's much more used to coaching players at the Auburn talent level and he has learned his lesson that he can't hire coordinators that don't understanding basic football concepts like getting plays in.

    They'll probably give him a contract extension, just like we did.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    By the end of the year we will all be sending the Auburn AD Christmas card to thank him for correcting our AD's mistake for hiring GC in the first place.

    JP was on Deace & Miller this morning, and after the interview a great point was made. The gameday coaching of Chizzzzzzzz may have left something to be desired (may have???), but the fact is season tickets soared, NCC memberships almost doubled, and we got some great facilities upgrades out of the GC expirement. I'm glad he's gone, but I agree that we're in a better place today.

    I agree with this. The only missing part of the puzzle (besides coordinators, which GC was fixing before he left) was that Gene was a ****** coach. This is the main reason I think he will fail at Auburn. He's not a good HC. A good coach would've done better than 5-19 in two years at ISU.

    It's just that simple; the guy doesn't have the chops to be an SEC HC.

    I was really hoping this article was about cheese dip. I was hoping to score some recipes.

    Re: Interesting take on Cheese Dip from SI.com

    Unfortunately people predicting he will not be a successful head coach at Auburn probably will walk away with some egg on their face.

    Staples makes a good argument that some guys can coach at School A but not School B. Chizik was not a teacher and he did not hire teachers. We need teachers to coach up the players who will take the full four or five years to develop. We will never have a great amount of talent that can play as a freshman and leave after three years for the NFL. Never.

    Chizik used us as a learning tool for what to do and what not to do as a head coach. I believe some of the guys he brought with him to Auburn will carry him to success. And let's face it, any head coach depends on his coordinators more than many would like to admit.

    I still think Chizik fails at Auburn, but not in the 2-10 sense. He'll get the talented players he needs, but they will not compare to the rest of the SEC. Kiffin is the next Pete Carroll IMO (recruiting-wise) and he'll get players to come to Tenn; Saban will dominate at Bama; Nutt at Ole Miss is looking to destroy every SEC opponent(especially Arkansas); Petrino at AK is trying to prove he can still coach; Les Miles could possibly see more scrutiny than Chizik and that's if the Tigers finish 9-3; and then there's Florida. The talent in the SEC is in the coaching and no-way Chizik has the ability to out-coach these guys.
