    Gee, when the coach mails it in, will players follow?

    If Malzahn returns

    I never thought for one second that the clowns who gave Gus that contract would axe him just one year later, thereby proving to the world that they ARE clowns. Time for basketball and time to put this $#&tshow to rest.

    PS...there are so many things wrong with this team. It is incumbent for the HC to fix the problems. It is also incumbent for the HC not to create the problems.

    I recall seeing Fromm on the sideline with a coach and some offensive linemen, talking, and with an intense look on his face. I recall seeing Stidham standing next to a grad assistant, smiling and laughing, while the team is losing. I have regretfully concluded that Stidham is just not invested with this team.

    If Malzahn returns

    Regarding basketball I am pretty sure one of the reasons Bruce is successful is he tells recruits that he plays a lot of players and if they work hard they will play...and they do! Gee, I wonder if there are any other coaches at Auburn that would benefit from that approach? I am totally fed up with the nonsense of a Gus lead team.

    I have zero knowledge of how much money is contributed to athletics. When you state that it is a very minor part of the total revenue, do you have any quantifiable data upon which you base your guess or is your guess just that...a guess?

    That is correct. The total is to be paid over a five year period with the first payment being in 30 days and the rest being paid each year for four more years. But to say his salary would be off the books ignores the annual payout and the $15 mil being paid right away. Don't misunderstand me...I want the guy gone, but the only way to justify his firing, from a financial viewpoint, is whether his staying as the HC would have a significant negative impact on revenue, including contributions to the university and/or athletics. I have no way to measure that but I suspect some boosters have expressed their thoughts.

    Nope. Gus is going to get 75% of his yearly salary if he gets fired. If you want to say that 25% of his salary would be off the books, you would be correct...but not 100%.

    There is part of your analysis that is missing a significant monetary factor. You would have to add the cost of the new HC’s salary, plus his buyout plus the cost of the new coaches and the cost of paying off the current assistant coaches. I am too weary of our oppressive situation to try to come up with how much all those dollars would amount to, but I am quite certain it would not be an insignificant amount. In summary, it is more than likely that stating that it would actually cost more to retain Gus for another year is simply not accurate. I wish this was not the case as it would make the decision easier if it were correct.

    No doubt

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    Not a chance! With Gus's contract he would simply tell folks to kiss off and just pay me my mega millions now (or just ignore them). Gus's offense USED TO BE ahead of the curve, but NOT ANYMORE! The guy simply is not capable of changing when it is crystal clear that defensive coaches have figured him out. Gus embarrasses himself constantly. In a way I feel sorry him.

    I really hope this happens for two main reasons. First, I am weary of watching the debacles and, second, I am sick of talking about the failures of Gus.

    I don’t know anything about Tom, but Zach is providing ample evidence that he has major problems.
