Re: The Malzahn Resume
Thinking about this a bit more, I can't help but agree with you guys. Here is my thing and I am going to try to leave this alone. My biggest problem with Gus are those inexplicable Gus moments that makes absolutely no sense. You know, the play calls that a Rec league coach can defend out with ease. Also, its the Gus pride. You know, the pride that doesn't allow him to surround himself with good coaching especially on offense. Hey Gus, this isn't Nazi Germany and no one here is trying to steal your secrets. Gus's biggest problem is himself which in turn makes him look like a fool at times and makes us look like fools for following/supporting him. Momma didn't raise no fool. I don't want Auburn to be in search for another HC. It would be nice to for Auburn to build on the rock thats already there and just become better and stronger. In the area of football though, thats gonna take Gus making some changes from within the program and himself.

Re: The Malzahn Resume
Not many are in front of them...we have been more than most.

Again I am taking multiple things into account.  Unless Bob Stoops is coming (hint: he isn't) give me another name that makes you say hell yeah (that would actually make the lateral move).  There are guys out there that "I think" would be better.  Guys like PJ Fleck, Mike Norvell but we don't really know.  So we fire a guy that went 9-3 to take a flier on someone else for a shoot ton of money? 

I think our expectations as fans have gotten out of whack (and yes I am also referring to myself) Call it the Saban factor call it the four team playoff. (Which I think has ruined college football).

I don't think Gus is the long term answer at Auburn, but for right now, at least another year, I agree with keeping him. We as fans though have got to get off the guys ass if he loses one game (myself included).  and No beating bammer doesn't make my season, but beating our biggest rival and being 9-3 is certainly more palatable than being 8-4.

tl;dr  we will have Gus next year and after the first loss I will be on here screaming to fire him.

I just rubbed my wiener all over your post and it got hard....the post and the wiener.
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

I am here.  I don't trust any of the fudgeers in leadership to make a good decision.  I thought that would all go away when we got rid of JJ, but it has just continued. We owe him a shoot ton of money.  No one out there really catches my eye.  Do I think Norvell, Fleck or the guy from ISU can come to Auburn and be successful? Yes I do, but are any of those guys worth dropping a shoot ton on money for Gus and staffs buyouts, the new coaches buyout and then have to pay him and his staff a hefty salary.  I just don't see it happening.  All I know is I am tired of fussing and bitching about Gus and his inability to get out of his own way.  

I had a neighbor that coached HS ball in Arkansas and Mississippi and he said that he has met Gus on several occasions.  He told me that when we hired him that his pride would be his downfall.  That he was hellbent on showing the world that his offense could be successful in the toughest league in the nation.  I have no reason to doubt him because we can see it happening.

Re: The Malzahn Resume
Let me say something about fan/administration support.  This applies to Gus or any corch at pretty much any Power 5 school.  There will ALWAYS be a faction of fans at every school that think someone else would be better.  Gus has lost 3-5 games every year for 6 straight now and there are fans, like me, who want a change.  But guess what, I've heard more calls than I can count the past few days to local and national shows that think Father Time has caught up with Nick Saban.  Heard one caller yesterday say he was embarrassed of this team and this defense is "an abortion".  Saban had better fire everybody.

But unless Gus, Saban or any other coach are listening to these talk shows or perusing the twatters and message boards all day, they don't hear shoot from the fans.  Sure, I'd love to see someone else at the helm here at AU.  But 90% of my griping is done right here on the good ole X.  And Ear-regardless of what I think of any Auburn coach, my fat ass is still going to be planted firmly in Section 8, Row 44, Seat 9 every game day.  Except for Samford. It was raining.

As for the administration, do you guys actually think Gus Malzahn needs any more "support" than a 7 year, $49,000,000 deal with a buyout the size of Cleveland?  I have a sneaky suspicion that Corch Malzahn feels nothing but love from the Auburn fambly.  But support or not, he's still going to do things his way, right or wrong.

I think his time at Arkansas solidified in his mind his correct-ness on all football related topics.  He was the hotness brought in with a core group of hotshot recruits.  His shoot was rocking and rolling until Nutt decided he hated Gus getting all the pub...and castrated him.

I think to Gus Nutt=Haterrrrrzzzz.  He proved them wrong once and now he is stuck with that mindset.

That mindset usually does not end well. I am hoping that ole Gus is smarter than that and sees that its ok to trust a coaching staff to make his job easier. Perhaps he sees himself much like Nutt and wouldn't like sharing the spotlight, as far as offense goes anyways.

I think his formative experience in big boy football is the bedrock of his coaching personality.  People, generally speaking, don't change.

Your ass isn’t fat. It’s....nice.

I say this with all sincerity but I think Gus could benefit from a sports psychologist. This is his main issue. Pride. Paranoia. Outthinking. I generally like the guy. But he has some hiccups upstairs.

Get a solid smart gamer qb who can..run RPO. Run hunh.  Run it til the other side passes out. Like we did in 2010, 2013. Stick to it. With all the window dressing and kitchen sink. He doesn’t stick to it. We are best when we run it. Just like the best team in the nfl is running right now.

The garbage I saw against Uf? Not even close to it.

Just superficial damage.  Should still be fine.

Re: The Malzahn Resume
Find another Nick Marshall to pair with our draw it up in the dirt passing tree and thank the Nix family for their patronage. That's the quick fix with our current receiver talent and having to replace 4/5ths of the offensive line.

Re: The Malzahn Resume
I have to admit that Malzahn made some adjustments in the passing game as the season went on. I assume he saw that the slants were available since he went to them more and more.  Although, Bama pretty much took those away for the most part.  The first play of the game to Schwartz is also something that could be a weapon and used way more often.  Running that drag pattern with a burner like Schwartz is the titz.  I remember Terry Bowden used to call that a lot.  Run the receivers off and drag Sanders behind them.  Unstoppable.

I was told there would be no math, but I thought it was 5/5ths we have to replace?

That's about 93%, right?

Actually, Nick Brahms took over at center for Cream Puff Kim.

Math in the state of Alabama is like Chinese or something, right? :blink:
Kim was the starter from game one but was replaced by Brahms against LSU.

Did Schwartz catch a ball this season?
I remember Canella and Hastings catching one each against Alabama.
Pretty tricky that Gus.
