Chizik Pays No Attention To The “Energy Vampires”

Maybe Gene Chizik has seen “Twilight” too many times on HBO.  Or maybe he just wished as a youth that he could hang with the two Coreys.

Whatever the reason, Auburn’s coach is no fan of vampires.  Specifically, “energy vampires.”

“Whatever people want to say or whatever somebody is comfortable talking about in terms of talk radio or other places, we have absolutely no control over that,” Chizik told’s Chris Low.  “But here’s what we know: We are the national champions, and we were the best football team in the United States last year.  There’s nothing I have to do to defend our honor for that.

“They’re going to say what they’re going to say and discuss what they’re going to discuss, and you have absolutely no control over that.  I call those energy vampires.  They’re not going to suck my energy out worrying about that.  That’s how we work.”

Good attitude.  And then he answered Low’s questions about Cam Newton (which, I suppose, makes Low an energy vampire by default).  “The kid was tarred and feathered for something he didn’t have anything to do with,” the coach said.  “I was always confident it was going to unfold that way it did.  Again, if you look and see how we proceeded during the year, it was evident that’s how I felt.  I just never thought any differently.”

He then attempted to drive a stake through… no, wait.  He just answered another question about NCAA allegations tossed by rival fans.

“That’s the way the world is.  That’s life.  We were the national champions, and just like probably everybody else that won a national championship, there are always people out there who’re going to say, ‘Well, they only won it because they did this or that… where they really shouldn’t have.’

“So, this isnt’ the first time that kind of thinking is out there.  It doesn’t make me mad, because there are always going to be people who are negative.  You can’t control that, but I can tell you we’re going to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”



He's off his rocker. Sounds like something Les Miles would come up with.


I notice he doesn't deny they cheated to win the national championship, but he does make it clear they're going to keep doing it!!!!!!!!!!


nice logic...considering that he was never asked if they prove his point well that rivals just hate and that he doesn't care
