Well, like you said, he's comparable to Carroll and even Tressel in that fans were not happy when they were hired, and then they won a title. But the question is can Chizik keep winning, and I don't think that's true. Carroll chronically lost one or two games a season, Tressel is the same way. Recruiting is not the answer for Chizik, especially in the SEC, so much as recruiting the right positions and having the right staff members (look at a team like Georgia--they recruit well and they're struggling). In other words, he needs dynamic QBs like Newton and he needs excellent coaches like Malzahn on staff. I think those are the two things that will show themselves to distinguish Chizik from definitely Pete Carroll. It's a matter of time before Malzahn is out of there, and I really think that, aside from Newton, was the biggest reason why Chizik won a title. Unless he can replace these stars, Chizik will be averaging about 8 wins a season at best, not 10 or 11 wins. But if can swing even just what Les Miles does in the SEC, i.e. he would be considered to be as good as Carroll.
