Under NCAA rules, the two Auburn players who were ejected will have to sit out the first half of the Tigers’ next game, which is against Alabama.
“Just really disappointed in that,” Auburn coach Gene Chizik said. “That’s a lot of reflection on us as coaches, and I’m embarrassed by it. That’s not who we are. That’s not the way we carry ourselves, and we will address it tomorrow. . . . I am not happy about it at all.”
Funny… he didn’t seem that upset while it was going on.
As a general rule, I’m not big on the Corch Meyers “We’ll handle it, and it’s going to be a big deal” approach to motivating the troops, but I think I’m ready to make an exception in this case.
