09:35 AM ET 11.10 | If the speculation is correct, and Gene Chizik is indeed out as Auburn's coach at season's end, the football program could also be out a highly-rated recruit as well. Back in May, Montgomery (Ala.) Carver High School Jeremy Johnson, a four-star recruit rated as the No. 10 pro-style quarterback in the Class of 2013, verbally committed to Auburn over the likes of, among others, LSU, Mississippi State and Ole Miss. On his Twitter account Friday afternoon, Johnson reaffirmed his commitment to the Tigers provided... "coach chiz" returns as head coach at AU in 2013. "I'm committed to auburn and coach chiz if he get fired then I'm gone he has no reason to get fired he not out there playing," Johnson firmly if not-so-eloquently stated in the tweet. "[E]verybody goes through a building stage and that's what it is next year," Johnson added in a subsequent tweet, referencing a coach who won a BcS title in 2010 and shouldn't be in any type of building stage -- rebuilding or otherwise -- two years later. Especially one whose grabbed recruiting classes rated 10th (2012), seventh (2011) and fourth (2010) the past three years, with 2013's class rated ninth.

Kid probably has talent but he is a 4 Star not a 5 Star recruit. You stop from firing this coach because of one 4 star player. If you want to keep the head coach, evaluate where the problem is and have Chiz hire new coordinators. At least one or two, if there area is the problem.
Chiz can really save his job by beating Alabama. Boy, would that be sweet!
Wonder if the Alabama QB told his Dad he was going to make em cry tonight. Well, he did, but it was the BAMA fans that cried. Guess he did to the little woose. Yeeeee Haaaaaaa! Rolled Em Up did ya, Aggies.
