    Stretch Limo?

    I see that Auburn used a stretch limo to create a presence in Alabama while on the recruting trail. Just wondering, did the Chiz use one in Iowa or was he tooling around in a Mini Cooper?

    Jean :)biggrin:) spent as little time in Iowa as possible to still be thought of as the ISU coach. As in he was here 6 Saturdays a year, and even that might be a stretch. :wink:

    This stunt is now starting to get some national attention. I would not be surprised if Wilbon and Kornheiser talk about it today on PTI. It just seems like a desperate move to me. It's like Chizik admitting he can't compete with Saban on the recruiting trail in the convential way so he has to pull out a Hummer stretch limo to try and impress some high school kids.

    I get it kind of.......but that is just dumb. He would have looked plain foolish doing that in Iowa.

    I met a bunch of Auburn fans in Orlando and I told them Auburn football glory days are over. One of the guys said, Gene is going to take the football program to a new level and I said right into the ground.

    Say what you want about this story, but the coaching staff that he has assembled there is one of the top 5 in the country
