Gene Chizik’s yearbook photo – I should add, alleged, since nobody has confirmed this is real – is floating around the interwebs this morning, and he looks like an extra from Dazed and Confused. It should be noted that this was posted on twitter by an Alabama fan, so perhaps it has been doctored.
This weekend, Chizik became the Best Close Game Coach Ever when the Tigers survived Mississippi State in the Cam Newton bowl, 41-34. Never get in a land war in Asia? Never get a close game with Gene Chizik: At Auburn, he’s 9-0 in games decided by four points or less.
