This guy is unbelievable. Jordan Cunningham just announced for Vanderbilt. Before he committed Jordan talked about how he was working on a 50 year plan, for life after football and getting his engineering degree. Wanting to have a good education to fall back on if he got hurt or just didn't want to play football anymore, and what not. After they cut back to the studio and got to good ole Gene, he basically said I don't care what Jordan says, "its about winning, not education." Guess Gene is a mind reader.
Gene stayed in the SEC a little to long, brought that attitude back with him. Glad Urban took a year off, got that SEC stink off of him and came back home where perspective is normal.
Did he really say that? Every parent with a child even considering playing for him should have that quote written on a postcard and mailed to them for kindling for the for the fire to burn Gene's correspondence. What an asshat.
At least he's honest. He DID coach for Auburn!

Anyone got a video?
He honestly said that?
I'd like to see the full quote to see the context. All too often nowadays you have the media doing selective quoting and blowing everything out of context.
Example: Hillary Clinton "What difference does it make?"
Scroll down and click on "RecruitingNation: Vandy lands No. 13 WR Cunningham"
It ends before Chizik's remarks, though.
Learn about Jordan Cunningham and other recruit player profiles on RecruitingNation.com.
Considering it was live TV kinda hard to take it out of context. Will have to look around to see if anyone has posted video yet. If not have to wait for a re-broadcast.
not to get political......but she said it, and she also said the buck stops with her.......you want some more of her famous quotes.....I have a lot concerning Bengahzi....
wow, i missed that. what an imbecile
Gave that an upvote,should have been down.Chizak cheated and did it big time and got away with it.However his current status really shows who he is;a bum that cheated,not respected and out of work................
I caught that as well.
I think that his response would've been more appropriate if talking about an incoming head coach who said that his first priority is winning in the classroom.
But for Cunningham it's appropriate since he only has 3-4 years there. And since this is the case, he has to think in different terms.
Coaches such as Chizik can get fired and then get rehired either at another school or at ESPNU. And not only that, Cunningham will be one of only eleven players on the field so his impact on some level in terms of his words, will mean even less.
Plus, he said these things now and not before a big game or right afterward.
But I agree with your big picture point which is why even offering such a response was unnecessary. Unnecessary because he ought to be commended for displaying maturity and discipline beyond his years. Both he and Vonn Bell were among the standout, live, on-air committments. Luginbill in fact commented positively on how Bell handled his announcement.
I just love the title of this thread so I thought I'd bring it back to the top.
