I am getting really tired of all these posts about how AU lost to the defending national champions, and the current # 3 team in the nation, as if it's OK that AU lost. As many have pointed out, AU, with a half-ass decent offensive game plan, could have beaten Clemson, not only this year but last year as well. The AU defense is playing lights out. They obviously have a game plan from Coach Steele. As good as Coach Steele has been at AU the last 2 years, I don't think many would consider him a "defensive guru" the way Malzahn is considered an "offensive guru." His coaching is just plain offensive. Now Malzahn is promising that things will get better. Against who? Mercer? Gee, thanks for that, Gussie. Chip Lindsey is most likely a very good guy, and possibly a good OC; but, an awful liar. He's falling on the sword for Malzahn. If he called all the plays, why was Gus walking the sidelines with a headset and game plan sheets? A couple of years ago, AU signed the nation's #1 class as far as Wide Receiver recruits, but what have they been able to do? NOTHING. I mean, a walk-on punter is the best receiver on the team? What does that tell you? AU signed the #1 JUCO recruit last year in Stidham, and what has he been able to do? Nothing, because he's running for his life every time he tries to pass. Who's fault is that? The offensive line, who is coached by one of Malzahn's buddies, Herb Hand. The whole offensive staff needs to go. I know everybody loves Kodi, and so do I, but either he's not doing the job, or he's following Gus' directives. My fear is if AU doesn't do something and SOON, we're going to see top-flight recruits not giving AU the time of day. I'm frustrated as hell. I'm sure many of you are as well. I still love my AU Tigers, and will pull for them till the day I die, but something's gotta change.
