I thought it would be a good idea to go take in a basketball game with a couple of friends, get away from the computer for a while, get my mind off of the increasingly real nightmare that was "Gene Chizik hired as next Auburn head coach."
I still don't know if that was a good idea or not, now that, somehow, Gene Chizik has been hired as the next Auburn head coach. Maybe it was better to come home to it, since it was a shock, like jumping into the deep end of the pool in March, rather than wading into the iciness of it over the course of the afternoon.
Either way, this is where the "cold water" analogy ends, since there's not going to be any getting used to it. I don't know how to react. It doesn't seem real. It doesn't seem like they could possibly be so shortsighted. I'm going to spend tonight trying to figure out how to react. That, and drinking.
I'll get back to you tomorrow.
War Eagle, anyways. Seems like we say that a lot these days.
