The Auburn Tigers are just two years removed from winning a BCS National Championship. But Cam Newton is gone. So is Nick Fairley, Michael Dyer and Lee Ziemba. Gus Malzahn is no longer running the offense, and the Tigers are off to an unimpressive 1-2 start in 2012.
That is a bad formula for current Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. But are the Tigers seriously considering firing Chizik after the 2012 season if things do not turn around in a hurry?
This is the SEC. That means the answer is yes.
