Does anyone remember the Bugs Bunny skit where he meets Hansel and Gretel, and Bugs Bunny just keeps repeating the name Hansel like he absolutely can't believe or process that this kids name is Hansel?
This is what it sounds like.
That seems to be the nearly universal response to Auburn hiring Gene Chizik as their new head football coach. I'd be laughing, except for the very small percentage chance that it might work. I don't like taking chances.
ME: Turner Gill was the only one who scared me.What would be even more fantastic, would be if Iowa State would hire Turner Gill to replace Chizik. But I'm not asking for that. That would be greedy.
JOE: Gene Chizik. Who did not win a conference game this year.
ME: Are we sure this is right?
JOE: He was 2-10, dude.
ME: And not Turner Gill.
UPDATE: Well, Kirk Herbstreit says it's an "outstanding hire."
"Auburn, congratulations. You got a great one."
