The Belly of the Beast:
Gene Chizik has a lot on his plate right now.Â In addition to being the head coach of Auburn, he named himself the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for Saturday's Chick-fil-A Bowl.Â That's quite a bit of responsibility for just one man and could lead to some details being overlooked.
However, Chizik is a resourceful coach and saw to it that no details would be missed.Â To help himself perform at an optimal level for all three positions, he consulted Lee County's finest scientists, who, with their combined half of a degree, created ChizBot 1.0:
It's a head coach, defensive coordinator, and linebackers coach all in one.Â The main head holds all of the information and decision making related to the head coach position, the screaming head motivates those linebackers to get to the football as fast as possible, and the chin-jut head does whatever Ted Roof did, except allegedly better, and looks more menacing in doing so.
And the best part for Auburn is that...
