PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Everyone will blindly say oh he only won that one year because he had Cam Newton.... Having watched Auburn pretty closely past 4 seasons (his career) I think that's a ridiculous statement, I really think that they did pretty well the other seasons with the talent and experience they had (last year they were one of the 5 least experienced teams in the country and managed 8-5). I simply don't understand why he didn't replace Gus Malzahn with a like-minded offensive coordinator. In my opinion that's what did him in, huge coaching staff transition and a relatively young team. All I can think is that there's a 'Sabanization' affect happening in the SEC, so he wanted to go pro-style...bad move.
Chizik is also a terrible head coach and has a .500 record as such.
Kentucky, Tennessee, Auburn and Arkansas..... almost 30% of the SEC is a victim of "Sabanization"
Yeah, I have a theory that the bottom-feeders of major conferences should be running spread-style offenses. There's a good reason the big boys play pro-set--they can recruit at every position. Teams like Colorado, Boston College, Kansas, and Kentucky can't possibly compete unless they have a schematic advantage to level the playing field.
Note: I'm including OSU as a pseudo-spread, as our formations are basically just cleverly-disguised power-I runs.

~Because we couldn't go for three~
24-38 without Scam.
Either Auburn did him a favor or the NCAA is looking at Gene Chizik.
Chizik was quoted as saying, "Karma is a bitch!"
