    Re: Chizik, Auburn surprise recruiting.

    It is funny how he recruited alright while he was here, but I wouldn't say he was near what the PR staff has been but he goes down there and he is top 5. I realize it's Auburn and top 25 would be expected but a top 5 class is extraordinary. I am not implying anything. I am just surprised by this.

    Re: Chizik, Auburn surprise recruiting.

    Nice to have good players. It's a shame they won't get coached properly unless Chiz hands the team over to his staff. I'll bet they underachieve and he's out of there in two years.

    Re: Chizik, Auburn surprise recruiting.

    They obviously liked what they saw in the bowl game...undisciplend team, personal fouls, flags, picking the wrong end of the stadium for overtime...and so on. I watched that game and thanked God for CPR...seriously I did. Watching that game was like groundhog day, just different colors and assistants, same crappy unprepared leadership.

    Re: Chizik, Auburn surprise recruiting.

    They are a warm weather, southern, rich tradition, have a great stadium and facilities. Have you seen their locker room?? I could walk into Auburn with an eye patch and one testicle and have a top 10 recruiting class. I will even wear cut off jean shorts.
    He will be run out of town eventually. 7 and 8 wins won't cut it there. maybe the years 1-3. Then they are going to demand BCS and SEC title games. And wins against Bama.

    May all his 4- and 5-star recruits be 1-stars in disguise.

    Of course it counts for something. He could use them to pay for those high price ladies of the night down south.

    Re: Chizik, Auburn surprise recruiting.

    Did Chiz rent a Humvee Limo for his recruiting trips again this year?

    His recruiting abilities have never really been in question. His coaching abilities, on the other hand...

    Re: Chizik, Auburn surprise recruiting.

    The rest of the SEC is not surprised. I have been hearing for some time that AU is high on a lot of kids lists and that Chizik and his staff have been doing a great job of recruiting. Trooper Taylor is apparently a tremendous recruiter.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    None of this is a surprise. He's always been a good recruiter. Good for him.

    Good for us that we have CPR. Everybody wins.
