Yesterday, Auburn president Jay Gogue posted a note “to the Auburn Family about Auburn football” on the school’s official website. In it he told fans that he’d heard their complaints. He promised that a complete evaluation of the football program — in the midst of a 1-6 start — would be forthcoming at year’s end. He asked fans to continue to support the Tigers.
He did not mention or provide any sort of vote of confidence for Gene Chizik, a man who’s job appears to be on the line just two years after winning a BCS championship. Welcome to the sporting world of 2012. Yesterday doesn’t count, only today matters.
Writer Kevin Scarbinsky of The Birmingham News took Gogue’s note as a sign that Chizik is in serious, serious trouble. Further, he suggests a change of football’s head coach might not be all that Auburn needs or is going to see.
