BLOGGIN FOR YOUR NOGGIN: Gene Chizik speaks


Hello. I hope you're having a nice day.

  • He has arrived.

  • He's looking forward to going to Baton Rouge.

  • "We're still a very good football team. We have a chance to win every game we play."

  • On the passing game: "You can't pinpoint it on one thing. I don't believe in doing that. It's 11 guys. There are a lot of issues in there. We feel very strongly that we're going to get that rectified."

  • On Ashton Richardson, a walk-on, who is the son of a great LSU defender: ``He doesn't ask for anything. He does this because he loves football and loves Auburn. I'm proud for guys like that. He's provided a lot of help on special teams."

  • On LSU: "They're very talented. Big targets. A lot of guys with big bodies, fast guys. And three senior tailbacks. They've done some really good things."

  • On LSU TB Charles Scott: ``It's going to be a challenge for us. We've done some nice things against the run in most games. We've struggled at times. He is a very physical tailback. That's a mentality they live and die with."

  • Chizik has a lot of nice things to say about LSU's defense, too. Same 'ol.

  • On Auburn's run defense: ``It's going to be a challenge every week in this league with running games. Everybody can run the football. At times Saturday night, I was really proud of our defense. There were times when we let it get away from us a little bit. We've got to be able to hold up. It can't be three quarters; it has to be four quarters."

  • On if Chris Todd IS 100 PERCENT: ``Chris Todd is fine."

  • On how things change during the middle of the season: ``There are so surprises now. There is no newness anything. Everything at this point is about who executes better. It's that window of the year where you see a lot of crazy things happen."

  • On Josh Bynes and Craig Stevens: "It affects you with the way you practice. It affects you all the way through the week. It affects you on special teams. There are more who fall under that same umbrella. Two guys like that have been playing a lotta, a lotta football. (Games) 7, 8 and 9 is where you see it. They're tough guys. They can't come out. They don't have that luxury. They don't come out. That's not easy to do."

  • On if Eltoro Freeman will play at linebacker: "He has to earn it."

  • On if his team has lost a step because of the staffing situation: "In some cases. It doesn't matter. That can't be a reason. We have to go out and win football games. The reality is: Yes. It's a really fine line for us right now. We have to be very smart about how we approach every practice this time of year."

  • On if he relishes being the underdog: ``We don't talk about that. It doesn't matter if we're the overdog or the underdog. We don't pay attention."

  • On staying positive: "We're 5-2, not 2-5. Our guys know we have a good football team. Not one of our kids right now is ... we're not going there. Our coaches are very positive. Our kids are very positive. They know the things that help us win and they know the things that don't allow us to win. We're all on the same page. We're all marching in the same direction. We're moving on."

  • That's a wrap.

One the bye week comment from last thread - I couldn't find any college data, but someone compiled the NFL data and found the team playing after the bye week won 53% of the time the last 19 years. Hardly a significant factor... in the NFL. Players there know their assignments better, but also hit harder than the college game. So who knows.

Anyway Hoopie, my self important X's and O's are once again valid!

You guys left out the weekly "We're playing against a very good team."

11:38 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I remember watching the Arkansas-Tennessee game in 2002 that went 4 or 5 OTS. We were off that weekend and we played the Hogs the next week. I thought, "Wow, we'll be so fresh and they'll be dog tired."

Well, they may have been, but they still beat us like 38-17 or something in J-H.

11:38 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

...and there it is!

11:39 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Yeah E-bro, if something doesn't heal in one week, it most likely won't heal in two a lot of the time.

I think that 53% figure is probably accurate. I am sure it helps more than it hurts, but it is certainly not the first thing you look at. After all, LSU lost after their bye week last year!

11:42 AM  
Blogger scottie irons said...

'fine' & 100% aren't the same thing.

11:43 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I'm starting to like the "[random player] loves football and loves Auburn" comments. Can we say at this point that that his entered into his repertoire?

11:43 AM

On if Chris Todd IS 100 PERCENT: ``Chris Todd is fine."

On if the hull of the Titanic IS 100 PERCENT "The hull is fine"

"We've done some nice things against the run in most games"

Yeah, we've done SOME nice things, just not A LOT of nice things.

Substance in the Chiz's quotes can sometimes be elusive as FAH.

If Chris Todd is "fine" is Malzahn

11:46 AM  
Blogger Harrison said...

maybe he was talking about how attractive Chris Todd is

11:46 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Shouldn't he just say "we've done a lot of things against the run." Just keeps it so more general. Sounds almost positive, but could mean that we've given up yards and touchdowns just as easily as tackled for a loss.

11:47 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Jay G. Thanks. I hope you're having a nice day, too.

11:48 AM  
Blogger michael said...

On almost every run, the runner has been tackled this year. That is a positive thing, right?

11:49 AM

Eltoro has to earn it, much like Private James Francis Ryan.

for the love of Pete 'Toro. freakin' earn it already.

I guess this is actually our first game as an underdog, and only 7.5 last I saw. Vegas loves us.

11:52 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Every time there is a chance to make a tackle, we attempt to tackle.

11:52 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

E-Bro, will the be a special group sent out to save Eltoro and bring him home?

11:52 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I hope Chizik reads this thread, chuckles to himself,leans back in his seat and thinks "Man, I'm good!"

11:54 AM

We never miss an opporunity to tackle we just miss the tackle.
Is that good ?

PF, we're sending 7 walk-ons led by Trey Blackmon to go find him and bring him home.

Only two will make it back alive.

We attempt 100% of the tackles that we try.

Oh, that's right Harrison. Still can't believe that one.

Well, I can now, but not then. My b.

11:56 AM

Don't go there.

11:56 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I'm popping in just for a second, but the Chris Todd Comment caught my attention. If Chris Todd is 100%, why not say it instead of vague fine which leads to more questions. Chris Todd is obviously not fine. To what degree, I guess we will have to wait till Saturday to find out.

11:57 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Eddie,

I concur.

11:58 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Bro, you sound like Bill Clinton asking the press to define "the" after Monica Lewinsky.

11:58 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

As a rule, isn't Chiz always pretty vague?

11:59 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

his chin isn't vague

12:00 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

No, it's well defined.

12:01 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Are we missing opportunities to miss tackles?

12:01 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Some are, most notable would be The Bull.

12:03 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Maybe there should be a tackle % stat.

12:03 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

South Carolina is going to wear camouflage designed uniforms on Nov 14 for Veterans Day. That's the day they play Florida. Should be interesting.

12:04 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Yeah, but what do you gain about being vague about Chris Todd's health? If he is a 100%, come out and say it when asked, don't dodge it with a vague answer because it will be an issue that is much discussed by the fans and the media until Saturday. I think we are going to see a new QB on Saturday. Who, i'm not sure, but based on facebook, I put stock into Rollison having a legit shot.

12:05 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

That's what we need...camouflage uniforms! Tackling problem solved!

12:06 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

He should have responded "It's 100% certain that he has two arms."

12:06 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

We could use the night camo, it has dark blue.

12:07 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Scott C- You are still assuming we can make a tackle in great position. That seems like a lot to ask for.

12:07 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Well, if we're camouflaged, all our guys can come off the bench and tackle, too. The officials will never know that we had 25 men on the field.

12:09 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Scott,

Do we have 25 people who can play D? At least 10 of those would probably have to be offensive guys.

12:10 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I think what Scott C is saying that with camo uniforms we can sneak out more players and field 14 or 15 on defense during a play. That might be enough.

12:10 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Look, do you want this plan to work or not? Okay, some of them will be NFL players on their bye weeks.

A very good football team? When did Chiz start drinking the Coosaide?

12:15 PM

Excerpt from:
You Can't Send a Duck to Eagle School,
by Mac Anderson
"Two of the all-time greatest coaches in sports history were Red Auerbach, who coached the great Boston Celtics basketball team in the 1950's and 1960's, and Vince Lombardi, the legendary football coach for the Green Bay Packers. When I read their biographies, what struck me most was their "keep it simple" philosophy. While other coaches were teaching complicated offense and defense, both Lombardi and Auerbach only had a few plays, but this was the key...they executed the plays to perfection.

Someone once asked Auerbach what magic formula he had for winning games. He laughed and said, "Our secret to success is what I would call 'effective simplicity.' Nothing complicated. In fact, we only have seven different plays and Bill Russell touched the ball on every one of them."
Under Auerbach's "effective simplicity" philosophy, the Boston Celtics won every championship from 1959 through 1966 - eight years in a row, a record unmatched since.

Lombardi's coaching philosophy was strikingly similar, and he had only five running plays in his offense, but like Auerbach, executed every play to perfection. He'd often say,
"We really don't fool anyone. The opposition knows what's coming, but they rarely stop us because every player knows his assignment and we've practiced it a thousand times."

Lombardi was fanatical when it came to teaching and reinforcing the basic fundamentals of the game. In his mind, blocking and tackling were the keys to winning football games, in fact, to make his point on fundamentals, every year he would begin his training camp by saying..."Gentlemen, this is a football."

This is what I hope we mean by our "simple" plays

12:17 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I saw a movie with Lombardi when I was young (it could have been actual practice footage or a movie with actors, it was a long time ago and I can't remember.) I remember he was yelling at someone in practice who had just had a bad play that if he didn't want to play football, he could go work at the popcorn stand. The yelling made me a little scared, but I also found it humorous. The player then did much better the next play.

So if you don't want to do HABOTN hardcore, you can go work at the popcorn stand!!

12:21 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

popcorn..most overrated snack of all time

12:23 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Great coaches are able to teach players to execute, regardless of the offense. Offensive philosophy definitely comes second to players executing well. If we are just able to manage to not jump off sides against Kentucky, we win.

12:27 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

The fact that Bill Russell was better than everyone else on the floor, and the Packers were the best team in football aided Auerbach and Lombardi's simplicity.

Just sayin'.

12:34 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

sorry I was too serious and killed the thread!

He should have said "overlord".

Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

I always like looking at stats after the game. We still are pretty high on the team and individual statistics. However, on the defensive side you can see the obvious. I will say that Stevens and BYnes are in the top ten or five in tackles, there is no category for missed tackles though.

Wow, there are 2 teams in the SEC who average less than our 4.5 yards per punt return.

Sure, THT, what do you want? The bank seems to assume we are made of money.

And, Kathy, I think it is a fire sale, but I'll buy that Todd's arm is fine. I wonder if the hits he took at TN hurt his psyche more than his arm? I hope so, cause that will be easier to fix.

2:07 PM

As I pointed out yesterday, Todd did that crazy little arm/shoulder flex all last year. That told me his arm/shoulder was bothering him. He has not done that this year until Sat. night when he started it again. Been there and done that so I know what that means. HIS SHOULDER IS BOTHERING HIM

Does bothering = not fine, though?

I like The Chiz's comment about Freeman the best: "He's got to earn it" (playing time). Because there's no way he's going to play LB by default ... like those times when you have no other LBs to take the field. That's just not happening at Auburn.

Seriously I hope he comes back. He will if he wants to. I guess this is an area where I don't understand this blog culture.

I didn't intend to come across as a "whiny pants", I had stopped DWWD for a moment, I will keep chopping wood & I will strive to do better.

What else is "fine" these days? Unemployment? GM? Bernie Madoff's cellmate?

3:01 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I hear the TN Titans are doing fine.

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

If one of our other linebackers goes down, Freeman will have earned it by playing better than air.

3:02 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

See, the thing is, you weren't really being a whiny pants, but it's way funnier to say that than continue down the path we were going with you repeating your shock at me overstepping my bounds over and over.

I met a dude once that cut his foot off chopping wood. I hope you don't do that.

3:05 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I hope I don't do that, which is why I'm striving to do better.

Because it is this week..and because I hate Tennessee with a CRIMSON passion..

*clearing throat*

Oh Rocky Top...you'll never mean
One damn thing to me...

I hate Rocky Top
Go to He... Tennessee!

Although I do like to hear Norah Jones sing the Tennessee Waltz...

She's on my list.

Blogger scottie irons said...

FSJ, i've got an even more vulgar version of that song if you're interested. :)

3:08 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Scottie...

When it comes to hating UT...I'm always open for more. :-p

3:09 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Who else is on your list?

3:09 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Jeff Fisher says things aren't that bad and all they have to do is work harder. He also said the sky is red and they will continue to work to prove it is in fact red and not blue.

3:11 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Off the top of my head...

Norah Jones
Ashley Judd
Sandra Bullock
Cindy Crawford

I may have missed somebody, but thats a good start.

So were you torn at all when you watched "A Time to Kill"?

3:15 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Jessica Alba is always at the to or near the top of any list I'd put together.

Eliza Dushku would be another.

3:15 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Ashley Judd is HAWT.

3:15 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

I'm a big fan of Sarah Chalke.

3:16 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

RK...

Jessica Alba is a good one too.. If I ever expand the list to 10 she's on it.

I made up a version of Rocky Top I used to sing to my Tennessee fan friend in high school. The lyrics were pretty simple, I just sang them in a mocking manner

"uptown, downtown, roundtown rocky top!
rocky top tennesee!
al wilson, tee martin, feerless pearless rocky top!
rocky top tennesee!
(then sing the real chorus)"

Also, you have to do the Seminole tomahawk/throat chop that Pearless Price kept doing when they were on the stand accepting the National Championship trophy.

I'm feelin' Sean. Was just about to say Chalke is at or near the top of my list. Fine looking woman.

The girl from Chuck, Yvonne Strahovski (sp?). Another fine looking woman.

3:23 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'm not feelin' Sean (gross), I just hear what he is saying about Chalke.

Just wanted to clarify.

3:24 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Wow this really took a turn for the worse.

3:25 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Kinda partial to Eva Green too.....

I don't think this is a turn for the "worse"....

Stupid typos.

3:27 PM  
Blogger scottie irons said...

i think it all started when someone said that Chris Todd looked 'fine'.

weirdos. :)

For my money, it doesn't get any better than Jan Terri in a spacesuit.

Eva Green...my favorite Bond Girl.

3:28 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Oh I wasn't pointing out a typo..

I was just saying this is a great thread.

I thought we were going to have a HABOTN "Hottie" countdown this summer?

Did I miss that?

3:29 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Mine too E-Bro.

Has JayG this?

3:31 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Has he seen it?

Photoshopped like nobody's business, but figured he'd enjoy.

3:32 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Seems Jenna killed the thread.

Too far on my part?

3:42 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

How would The Chiz respond to his list of top hot/fine chicks?

3:48 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

They're all "fine"

From the mouth of ElTurbo, warning his dad about an unfulfilled promise.

Wow. Harsh. He knows you pay his room and board, right?

Shhh, Jet,
I probably wasn't supposed to let that little bit of information about my kind out into the blog world. Forget you ever heard it.

I'm fine.

I own some coins that are fine. Some are very fine and still more are extra fine.
