Pat Dye and Past Players React to Auburn's Loss and Chizik's Career
Two years ago, Auburn sat on top taking home a national championship. But after last weekend's loss to Arkansas, the university now has one of the worst records in the SEC. So what does this mean for Head Coach Gene Chizik?
CBS 8 News caught up with former Auburn football coach Pat Dye, and a couple of past players. We asked them how they felt about this season., and if Gene Chizik is still the man for the job.
The score 24 to 7 left tiger fans shocked, and Chizik apologizing.
And since taking home the National Championship title two years ago, the Tigers have lost half of their games.
But Coach Dye is asking fans to keep wearing their pride, "because every team in the South Eastern Conference would like to see Auburn in disarray. But we need to stand up like Auburn men and women and support Gene, the players and the staff."
Auburn still has to take on ranked Georgia and Alabama, and play SEC teams Texas A&M, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss. They can lose two of those games and still make it to a bowl game.
