Reaction from Chizik's pre-game speech
The team beat Kentucky, 81-69.
Here is what the Tigers had to say about Chizik's chat:
PG WHITNEY BODDIE
"That was so cool when he came in. He gave us a really good speech and I don’t if he practiced that before he gave it, but it was really good. I was fired up. That might have had something to do with that first half, but man, that was good stuff. He was just talking about how you can’t look past anyone. You have to take it one game at a time and he was talking about the triple a’s: anyone, anywhere, anytime."
COACH NELL FORTNER
"He was so gracious to do that and I appreciate it so much. Our team and me personally and our staff, we go to every home football game. We love football and we are at all of the Tiger Walks. We know the football players. We love that part of Auburn. I knew the kids would get very excited to have him in the locker room and it was just a typical coach speech. We all say about the same thing, but it was really nice to hear some things come out of his mouth that they hear come out of our mouth all the time and he’s got a lot of fire in him. I just really appreciate him doing that; I know the team really enjoyed it. It was good."
