A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words: Gene Chizik’s Daughter Goes to the Prom

Chizik Daughter

The picture says it all.

In fact, it may be the greatest father-daughter photo ever taken. Gene Chizik’s daughter went to the prom this weekend. Apparently, Gene wasn’t overly thrilled with her choice. Maybe it’s the long hair. Maybe it’s the thought of this boy taking his baby anywhere.

If you’re the father of a teenage girl, you understand the facial expression. Look up the term “father’s angst” and you’ll see that photo.

The boy’s mother took the picture and Tweeted it later that evening with the caption, “You think my son will come home from the prom alive?”

It looks like Chiz is flexing those guns. Maybe he wore the shirt on purpose, to send a subtle message. Pure gold…

In the words of Verne Lundquist, “Oh my goodness.”

It has gone from bad to worse for the fledgling SEC Network. We just thought adding Paul Finebaum and Jesse Palmer to the network was bad. It was announced last week that former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy will join Joe Tessitore and Tim Tebow on the channel’s version of College GameDay this fall.

Who are the morons hiring the talent?

McElroy may be the biggest twit to ever play college football. His face immediately pisses off half the people who see it. Now we are being subjected to this each Saturday? I think I’ll stick with Fowler, Corso and Herbstreit.

They’ve also hired two more analysts, both from LSU. Former Tiger defensive linemen Booger McFarland and Marcus Spears will provide commentary on game day. I can’t hear it now, “Let’s send things back to Booger in the booth.”

Can I get another, “Oh my goodness?”

One of the big story lines of spring practice so far has been the play of backup quarterback Jeremy Johnson. While the upcoming season will be firmly in the hands of Nick Marshall, those looking to the future can breathe easier.

More than one insider has said that Johnson has closed the gap considerably. Known for his pocket passing, Gus Malzahn has the sophomore working on his running skills when in the zone read.

“I’m getting better every day,” says Johnson. “I watch film. I do better. I’m practicing on carrying out my fake. “It wasn’t anything I ever did. It’s just the simple fact with my footwork and how to do it and the right read.”

“He’s way faster than you would think, he’s way smarter with the zone read because he knows how to get to the edge,” safety Jermaine Whitehead said. “He uses his body, his length, to his advantage. He steps around a lot of guys; I’ve seen him make some steps around our D-ends that were pretty spectacular.”

      If so, they’re amazingly good at shading. His shadow on the wall matches perfectly with the ambient light on the couple. And the addition of keys in his right hand are a nice touch. Both of those point to a true photograph rather than an altered image.

      It maybe not McKayla Maroneyesque in popularity, but I suspect this “not impressed” image might get photoshopped in the future to good effect around the conference. Especially if Gene keeps his gig with ESPN.

    Prom night, eager young lad to keep an eye on? No problem.

    Wayne Bolt probably showed up at the prom to observe, take notes and report back.

    It’s just ol’ Chiz taking care of bidness, the way ol’ Chiz takes care of bidness.

    You know, I’d be okay if I didn’t hear anything else about Chizik. I can’t stand him. He personally made Auburn a joke in the SEC before Gus came and made us a power again. The more I learn about Gus, the less credit I give to Gene Chizik for Auburn’s 2010 national championship. Sorry, but I can’t help but get a little upset when I see the guy’s picture. Keep in mind, he’s still being paid millions of dollars and he’s not even there. So, not only did he design a team that gave Auburn one of its worst seasons in history, but he’s still making millions from Auburn even after he is gone.

      The man also “designed” a team that won AU a National Championship. The man also hired Gus to begin with and the man also cannot be blamed for accepting payment based on a contract that Auburn offered him and he accepted. Get over all the he did that and he did this bull. The man also recruited every lineman that we have now.

        You’re never going to get me to look at him in a good light. Ever. I am not getting over anything. He got rid of his best coach as well and he meddled with everything and ruined a really good thing. You would have a better chance of making pigs fly than for me to get over all that he did against Auburn.
