Auburn fires Gene Chizik

OMG get this guy to coach the Gophers. Auburn has been a good team for many years, it just ran into a couple of down years. Chizik is better than any coach the Gophers have had since Lou Holtz.

Other than getting Cam Newton, which may or may not have been very shady, his record is pretty poor. 7-17 in the SEC, 19-19 overall without Newton. 5-19 at Iowa State before that. His history as a DC is much better (at Auburn and Texas), but as a HC, he hasn't shown any ability to put together better than a middling team.

7-17 in the SEC would be like 20-4 in the BigTen. Idk, I think he is better than anything they have had in decades.
