The 671 yards allowed was the most in program history. A&M had 38 first downs, converted 9-of-11 third downs and averaged 8.2 yards per play.
After starting the season 1-6 and the poor play that has surrounded it one couldn’t imagine the Tigers bringing back Chizik in 2013 after this type of performance.
By now Chizik’s office should be packed and the boxes should be taped up.
It’s always a tough week when anyone loses a parent, even Chizik, whose presence has caused fans to send letters and voice mail’s to the school president.
The most pathetic thing about the loss is it came in Auburn’s home stadium, Jordan-Hare Stadium. Texas A&M isn’t a push-over but never should a team with the standards of an “Auburn” be dominated like that.
Fans in the student section voiced their displeasure by leaving. A tweet by @JayGTate, who works for AuburnSports.com, showed how empty the student section was just after halftime: (@JayGTate)
Just think of the out-lash that will come from an Alabama beating…
