Your team is no longer disciplined. They give up, they lack effort, they do not fight, they mail it in and they just want to end the game. Your team cannot perform the fundamentals, (blocking, tackling, pass protection or pass defense, and have in fact digressed in all areas in just two short years. You have in fact been the worst at fundamentals and at defense in the last four years than at any point in school history. You have set school records for futility and ineptitude and humiliating defeats. The team has no leadership. You lose not only to your rivals, badly, and are never really even in the games at all, but you also lose to all of the rest of the teams in your league, yes all of them, (even the traditionally weak sisters), and by horrendous scores, (again, the worst in school history), which causes the stands to be cleared out by halftime. Fan's even stop coming to the games. Nobody even wants to watch you on TV. All the while, you are paid 3.5 million dollars per year to keep all this from happening, but you are clueless. You don't have any idea about how to fix it, and in fact you seem to be ignoring it, week by week by week. The CEO, of any company would NOT survive the last two years that Gene Chizik has brought upon his institution, they would be fired without haste and with malice, and at 3.5 million per year, Gene has to be held accountable.

Former Auburn fullback Heath Evans recently said to ESPN 97.3 in Birmingham : "I saw this coming and nobody wanted to believe me. I worked out with the team awhile back ... Discipline, structure, accountability, and most importantly, mental and physical toughness. It's non-existent at Auburn now. It's absolutely pathetic, and I know those are harsh words, but see, the thing about mental and physical toughness is, they're created. They really are. I can show you the man that looks the biggest and the toughest, and most likely, I can put him in some circumstances where he'd crumble. Great coaches know how to make great men, and they're built."
