Funny that you say youre fed up with losses but you will settle for anyone less than Bobby Petrino. Its time for the Auburn family to stop being content with hiring mediocre head coaches and finally hire a big name that has been proven in the college ranks. Petrino is far and away the most qualified, proven candidate out there and anyone who doesn't see that just doesn't follow college football that closely. He is notorious for being a tough disciplinarian...something this team desperately needs right now. Its time for Auburn to not care what everyone else thinks for once and hire a winner. Regardless of Petrinos, off the field history, he has a history of winning on the field, and thats all that should matter. The football program is too important to this city and university to risk another subpar "nice guy" hire. Businesses downtown have been hurting because of the lack of interest in our terrible excuse for a football team. So unless you want to be back in the same spot in 3-4 years and watch auburn fall into the depths of mediocrity in the SEC, lets all get off our high horses and hire a real head football coach in Bobby Petrino.

Neither Obama or Romney are going to reduce our debt or address global warming. Both will increase the wars. Only Gary Johnson will audit the FED and make a move to end the Ponzi scheme our government is caught in. Johnson will repeal the Patriot Act and NDAA, fix the FDA and USDA. His plan to reduce military spending by 43% by ending military interventions, bringing our people home and closing overseas bases, to change green cards into work visas, to end the prohibition on Marijuana and even his version of the Fair Tax is compelling. Johnson has supported himself since he was 17, putting himself through college, starting a door to door handyman service that grew to employ over 1,000. When he sold that business, no one lost their job. During his two terms as Governor of New Mexico he cut taxes multiple times, vetoed 750 bills and used his line item veto thousands of times. When he finished his second term the state budget was balanced and there was a billion dollar surplus. We voted early for Gary Johnson.

Sorry to read about the passing of Coach Chizik's mother. Losing a family member is always tough, during a grueling football season that is already so busy you do not get to see your family makes it even worse. Prayers lifted for you and your family Coach. As far as the season goes, remember it is not how you start, it is how you finish. Finish STRONG War Eagle!

This editorial is embarrassing. Your opening sentence isn't grammatically correct and shows either lack of basic English skills or just a lack of attention to detail. I can't believe that this is even a legitimate article! Please, tell me this was a joke that was inadvertently published! I understand that Auburn has no Journalism school, but I certainly remember taking English comp as a student at Auburn. My alma mater is an institution of higher leaning, not a football fan club. In your duty as journalists, you have neglected the truth of the matter - Gene Chizik is a failure. You have also managed to take away from the points that you may have made by communicating like a grade school student. Show some respect for Auburn and the Plainsman and at the very least get ALL IN with grammar check. In a time when you can publish an ezine article from your perch at SkyBar, you could certainly run a grammar check from your mobile device. Hand your head in shame. You deserve it.

I'm simply stunned to read Mike Hubbard offering, “Governments really do not create anything, certainly don’t create jobs or wealth. The private sector is what creates the jobs and the wealth.” Not only did Mike Hubbard get his start at Georgia and then Auburn doing sports marketing, his Dad worked for the US Post Office and his mother managed a county health department. I presume both retired with some sort of pension and benefits. Beyond his wife still being employed here, Speaker Hubbard has undeniably made a good portion of his fortune via Auburn.

I have been supporting Coach Chizik to my friends and family all year. I've been saying let's see what happens next year. However, this year has become so embarrassing for the Auburn Family that my support has diminished greatly. I don't think all of the blame goes to Coach Chizik. As was said in the article two new coordinators is not an easy transition to accomplish in one season. I do feel that the vast majority of the blame lands on Coach Chizik's shoulders though. The offseason murders that took placer were just a heinous act by a cowardly person, and that is clearly beyond the control of the football program, and doesn't belong in the discussion. The arrests, however, seem to reflect that Coach Chizik has been recruiting players with no regard to their personal character, and character is highly important in forming a cohesive unit. And the play on the field also seems to suggest a lack of sound coaching. Auburn fields a team that is loaded with talent, but the talent seems to be squandered. I think the most damning evidence that the coaching hasn't been adequate is the atrocious performances put up in the fourth quarter of every game this season. Auburn has been outscored 62-3 in the fourth quarter this year, that is outrageous. It seems to suggest that the coaches have not prepared the team to play for sixty minutes. The season would be completely different if that statistic wasn't so maddening. I don't think Coach Chizik will be fired after this season, it would be too expensive to buy out his contract right now. However, if he doesn't have a spectacular season next year, and by spectacular I mean at the very least nine wins and challenging for the SEC west championship, he will and probably should be fired. War Damn Eagle win or lose.
