08:20 AM ET 10.18 | Playing as an underdog this weekend against Vanderbilt isn't exactly what Auburn fans had in mind, and Tigers coach Gene Chizik was asked Wednesday for the right word to describe his football team. He passed on the questioner's "desperate" and "dejected." "I would say if you were going to use the word, 'urgency' is the name of the game," Chizik said during the SEC teleconference. Auburn will play Vanderbilt in Nashville on Saturday needing a win. The Tigers are 1-5 overall, 0-4 in in the SEC. Critics have taken note. "We don't let the outside distractions become a part of who we are," Chizik said. Chizik is instead worried about beating Vanderbilt. The Commodores have only two wins, yet are a touchdown favorite.

LOL, very funny!!! Yeah strange being an underdog to Vandy. We are talking about two good teams in the "Mighty" SEC. Hell that's like talking about a game between Washington State and Colorado. :-)

Yep, it is a bad year to say the least. Changes will be made but I have no clue what they will be.

so if they lose they will officially be the new Vandy except without all the money and smarts.

The new Miss State. Both are Cow colleges.

Vandy will always be Vandy, besides Vandy is better than Auburn in Baseball and Basketball.

Don't think the Dores will let this one slip away....he could lose Saturday and still get one more year....

Aubie wins the bidding war from UTk and Petrino avoids wearing those gawd-awful orange pants.

With BP, you win 10 games a year for 3 yrs until he get caught "sleeping over" at the Chanceller's house with is 23 year old daughter.

He then leaves in the middle of the night for the Clemson job and patiently sits in the hall while Dabo loads his boxes.

If you fire the head coach that won you a BCS title, than what are the standards? To have a coach that will continually give you 10 win seasons like Mark Richt and then constantly complain about him becuase he never has won you the title? Keep Chizik at least for another year.
