Chizik: The Full Story

The Advertiser's video ace, Shannon Heupel, has produced an 8-minute video of Gene Chizik's talk with supporters at the Montgomery Auburn Club last night.

The coach discusses ... pretty much everything.

NOTE: I initially embedded this, but having a really loud advertisement playing in your face every single time you load the blog probably isn't enjoyable to you.

I just happened to come back to the blog after doing an x-ray and there was the new thread. I thought for sure someone would beat me to it while I was signing in. I can't watch the video here at work, 'cause there's no sound. :-(

Well done, Chip, I actually laughed out loud at that one.

I thought maybe it was like speeding tickets. Get enough secondary violations and you get a point.

It could be. I always just think they keep them on file until you really muck up and then the just tack them on to the tab.

Did anyone else catch Jeff Sentell's blog about Jeremy Richardson?

Jeremy Richardson did commitment the right way

Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

We have apparently fallen out of the lead for Victor Beasley and he visited Alabama and James Willis. Undercover is reporting he now ranks us 5th behind Bama, Duke, East Carolina, and Clemson. He said he likes the competition at Alabama and their focus on championships. He also said he would have committed on the spot, but his dad, the former Auburn player, advised him against it.

11:33 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Thanks for the link, Aero. I hate to admit it, but below the article there were some surprisingly classy comments by most of the Bammers. Their regular posters must have been at a monster truck rally/dogfight/chitlin' eating contest or something similar.

Aero, great article! Now THAT'S the kind of player I want at Auburn! Not that anyone cares what I think...

Jeremy Richardson is the kind of kid I like to see going to Auburn I got the same feeling about Jawara White. I know people didn't buy into Tuberville's comments about getting the right player for Auburn than just chasing the stars, but it is very true.

11:41 AM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

It is nice to see that Mike Berry looks to be a starter this season. He is one of these four stars that has never seemed to live up to his billing, although he did start some last season. Hopefully Grimes will get him to the level he was expected to reach when he signed.

I am disturbed.

Honors College dude during his remarks refers to "JOR-dan Hare Stadium."

I thought ElTurbo was going to go Eltoro on him.

What is this world coming to? Not only is Jordan sometimes pronounced "Jurdan" (my wife's maiden name is Jordan but her father pronounces it Jurdan but I refuse to just to annoy him), now Jet tells us that Lache is actually pronounced "Lake".

Our daughter did the Honors program for the first 2 years i order ot get preferential class scheduling. She dropped after that.

Scott.....accpetable coach speak dictates that each school always goes after the "right" recruits instead of the "best" recruits. This would be true for Carroll, Saban, Tubs, Brown... or Chizik. The truth?...we can only guess in hindsight.

No coach in his right mind is going to throw his recruits under the bus and state the he had to settle for less than what he wanted.

And that is Top 10 in all of the United States not just East Alabama for anyone trying to be a smart alec.

what, you don't say JUR-dan???!!


12:50 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

I don't see why it's a big deal to pronounce it the same way the man pronounced his name as silly as we may think that pronunciation is. It's named after him, right?

And Auburn is a fabulous place to live. I highly recommend it, Hoop.

12:52 PM

Anyone who continues to call it JOR-dan Hare, even after being instructed that it is pronounced JUR-dan Hare deserves to be chop blocked.

Are you the one who intends on delivering the chop block, Jet?

I don't go out of my way to say Jordon it's just one of those things. When I"m talking to the JURdon's I call them by their name. If I'm hanging with Shug's clan, I'll make a concerted effort to pronounce it JURdon. Actually, I don't have occasion to even say "Jurdon Hare Stadium" very often. I say THE stadium. This is a silly conversation.

I want to know how much it cost Auburn to be put on the top 10 list. I don't get it. There are a few on this list that I wouldn't put there.

Albuquerque, N.M.
Auburn, Ala.
Austin, Texas
Boise, Idaho
Durham, N.C.
La Crosse, Wis.
Loveland, Colo.
San Luis Obispo, Calif.
St. Augustine, Fla.

Boise?? ANYWHERE in Wisconsin?? Albuquerque?
Upper St. Clair, Pa.

What really gets me is when national talking heads pronounce it wrong.

I don't remember if Herbie pronounced it wrong or not, but I don't need a reason to punch him in the neck - I don't like the way he looks.

Some of you folks look for things over which to be offended.

You name the date and place you want to deliver my chop block and I'll be there, Scottie B cuz I KNOW Jet is 150% tawlk and no action.

I've heard everything from Jurdan to Jawrdan.

I'll just pronunce it 'Urdan', like the the Arabic pronunciation of that country southeast of Syria.

If necessary, yes. As one who owns a name that is most commonly spelled a way other my family spells it, I guess find it peculiar that someone would knowingly spell or pronounce a name incorrectly, particularly of someone you respect.

My maiden name is French and has a silent "X" in it, Jet so I understand where you're coming from.

I didn't realize those cities paid to be on the Top 10 list. Guess it isn't such a big deal after all. I love living in Auburn anyway.

Releasing the NCAA sanctions against Bammer is akin to Lucy place-holding a football for Charlie Brown to kick.

If Jacobs went third round or earlier, he is nuts to not go pro.

Donovan Tate from our local HS went #3 overall. That's worth about $2 mil. He was a 4 star football commit to UNC.

Hoopie, good Charlie Brown analogy (and you may still be right), but even B'ham's Bammer-centric sports radio is reporting that UAT received the ruling from the NCAA today. They have 24 hours before it is released to the media.

If Bammer loses TV exposure (doubtful that the SEC will let that happen).....will 2010 commits then defect? Will Julio play one more and go pro?

Kinda goes back to the "best" vs "right" issue.

Brandon Jacobs got drafted in the 10th round.

To be or not to be, that's the $1 Million question.

dunno about Jacobs, but according to, Chizik has already offered a (to be) Junior QB named Kiehl Frasier. he is at Malzahn's old high school in Springdale, Arkansas. they still run his old offense there apparently.

there was not a pronunciation guide for his first name. sorry. :)

Scottie B - I think that in this case, Kiehl is pronounced "Bob".
