Auburn fans are not happy with their coach

What would Iron Bowl week be without a dig at our upcoming rival?

I had this image sent to me by a reader via email. The chart below shows the median points scored since current Auburn head coach Gene Chizik was the program's defensive coordinator under Tommy Tuberville.

Chizik left the Tigers after their undefeated 2004 season to coordinate the Texas Longhorns' defense. In 2005, Texas went undefeated and won the national title. Things on the defensive side of the line of scrimmage weren't as peachy in the years immediately following Chizik's departure. But the wheels really came off when Chizk returned as the head coach and hired current defensive coordinator, Ted Roof.
