HOOVER, Ala. -- For as long as he's been in the SEC, Gene Chizik has displayed an amazing skill for not only dealing in the most fluent coachspeakisms, but for dispensing them so quickly and seamlessly that the overall effect is one of sitting in front of a wave machine. A wave machine wearing a particularly dapper pinstriped suit.
From his opening statement on the second day of SEC Media Days, we recall only that Chizik opened by giving thanks for the public outpouring of support following the June shootings that claimed the lives of two former Auburn football players. Everything after that is just a soothing blur. Until!
