TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It started somewhere in the Twittersphere: #KeepChizik.

Say what you will about the Alabama fan base, but recognize the genius. There was nothing more beneficial to the Alabama football program than Gene Chizik's continued reign at Auburn. While his program toiled in obscurity and scandal, Nick Saban's could cut through the surf with the wind at its back.
