Gene Chizik has won a national championship. Read that sentence as many times as you want; it will always be completely truthful*. Now, Gene Chizik is the defensive coordinator at UNC, a team that ranked 119th in points allowed per game and 117th in yards per play allowed. Which is to say: you have nowhere to go but up, Gene Chizik, and we're confident you've used your time off to improve your leadership skills, study up on the game, and learn where babies come from.
