Florida/LSU vs Auburn

We kept Malzahn and gave him an extension after a 2-6 conference record in 2015. We took a beating in the press over Jetgate in 2003 and Terry Bowden's mid season resignation in 1998. We even got beat up over firing Cliff Ellis. LSU fires their most successful coach ever early in the 2016 season and...

Malzahn's future at Auburn/coaching carousel

Now McElwain is out at Florida. With this many vacancies, I suspect Auburn will decide not to make a change this year regardless of how we finish the season. As much as I hate to say it, if we don't have a guy picked out already, it would definitely be a bad time to try to find the right guy. That i...

Re: Sorry for the double post - Just in case you missed it.

I posted this reply in the thread about what might happen at Arky.  It was burried on page 3, or something, but I didn't want anyone to miss it. Good Lawd it is painful to read all this "woe is us" stuff....... Sure we stunk it up bigtime last week.  But that crap was corrected and we kicked Arky's...

Re: Auburn (with Gus Malzahn)

We've got to be the only school in a Power 5 conference that doesn't allow the QB to change the play at the line of scrimmage.  Unbelievable. I keep seeing people post that and expressing incredulity. Doesn't anyone remember that was the point of going to these whiz-bang, spread offenses in 2008?  ...

Re: On a lighter note

I typically don't watch random football games.  I watch Auburn and pay little attention to other games.  However, I tuned in to the SEC network and who should be doing the color but none other than Tommy Tuberville.  I had no idea.  I found him to be very insightful and interesting to listen to. He...

Re: Auburn (with Gus Malzahn)

He should have been placed on notice after the 2-6 SEC record in 2015.  Instead, he got an extension. Yeah, 2013 was great, for the most part.  I thought he would suck, but 2013 made me suck that up, at least for a while, but, as it turns out, at least for me, my first impressions are almost always ...

Did anyone really expect a different outcome?

Really, after watching Malzahn at Auburn over eight seasons as either HC or OC, did anyone really expect a different outcome from this game?

Re: My complaint

What we need is to continue to improve every week and get Pettway (et al) well.  I have had this problem that Pettway has.  It hurts like sin.  It is caused by microscopic tears in the plantar tendon.  My cure was stretching exercises and anti-inflammatories. The biggest monkey on Malzahn's back is...

Re: My complaint

We still run a very simplistic passing game.  That part has not changed.  It is the same as all the years Malzahn has been at Auburn., except that we used to have short passing plays to Eric Smith (?) in 2009 and 2010.  We do nothing short and over the middle, we have no quick pass plays, we never h...
