We can see how Gene Chizik could be a little intimidating to a high schooler interested in his daughter.
Chizik's daughter Landry (and presumably her twin sister Kennedy) had prom on Saturday night, so naturally, pictures were part of the prom night process. During one of the pictures, Chizik, the former Auburn coach, made sure to be in the frame and give a disapproving look. And yes, it was fake.
Looks like Chizik has been spending some time in the weight room, doesn't it? The tight long-sleeve shirt and the position of his arms folded on his chest are a good way to help inflate the biceps, but we think we know what Chizik has been doing since he was fired at Auburn after the 2012 season.
After leading Auburn to a win in the 2011 BCS Championship Game against Oregon, the Tigers were 3-9 in Chizik's second season following the title and he was replaced by former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn. In Malzahn's first season, Auburn went back to the BCS Championship Game and lost to Florida State.
The picture was posted by the mother of his daughter's prom date and she assures us that Gene is a fan of her son. Chizik does a great job of selling some potential awkward hand placement.
Since he's still on Chizik's good side, we're guessing that any small talk has not revolved around Auburn's 2013 season.
