|The sun has set on Auburn's 2012 season|
It was the most embarrassing display of football I have seen in
Offensive production, no wait, that is an oxymoron. How about the lack of any offensive production can best be described by this statement from al.com
Auburn's final three SEC opponents scored touchdowns on 16 of 18 first-half possessions.
What about defensive prowess? Here is the most horrid of all stats from the game, as provided by the war eagle extra...
Alabama led 42-0 after 30 minutes, its largest halftime lead ever on Auburn. Never before in the Iron Bowl’s 77-game history had one team banked 40 points in back-to-back matchups.
Bama's defense has now gone 2 consecutive years w/out giving up any points to Auburn.
Faced with a barrage of questions about whether or not Gene Chizik is the man to pull Auburn out of this hole, the Tigers stood united on one key point.
The Tigers want Chizik and his coaching staff back.
"He should be back," quarterback Jonathan Wallace said. "They know exactly where this program needs to go, and they know what to do. I hope they are back next year. I really have no doubt. I really do believe they will be.""Of course I want him back," Mason said. "But that's not my decision to make."
"I don't think there are any quitters on our team," Mason said.
To finish, we have this video of Jake Holland with the media after the game.
The waiting will soon be over, and the news of Gene Chizik's fate will be told. Until then, we will hope for the best for these players.
