  1. Praise for Coach Malzahn

    Several interesting comments and perspectives here. But again we could've won this game and would have probably won this game more convincing way if Gus have been locked in a random janitors closet two hours before kick off and left there until right about now after the team plane had already departed Texas. Our head coach, wide receivers coach and special teams coach are incompetent. I would love to see us upset Georgia or Alabama, but the completion of either or both of those accomplishments does not negate the aforementioned incompetence in those three positions, especially in Gus who still has a general stupor on his face the majority of the time he's on the sidelines.
  2. Gus: Football Research Scientist

    I disagree with most of this. Gus is simply broken. There are many examples of athletes who slump due to mental issues, some recovering, but most never getting back to where they were. Gus is a broken man. He abandoned his own theories and greatest strengths. No more HUNH besides that run up the middle after picking up a first down. No orbit motion. Fewer jet sweeps. Awful timing on screens and ignoring screens when they best fit. No more wheel routes. Fewer creative shifts. A complete change in blocking schemes. Less confidence in QBs (I believe Cam audibled). No zone reads when running the Wildcat (why not?). A general sense of stubbornness with zero creativity at the half. Whatever tactical strengths Gus had, he can no longer get it up...from the recesses of his mind, and he has effectively been emasculated. Period.
  3. Stidham not allowed to audible

    It's a mistake. You get 3 timeouts per half. Sometimes a quarterback is going to know the play call was destined to fail and I need to make a change at the line of scrimmage.Sometimes a quarterback is going to know the play call was destined to fail and I need to make a change at the line of scrimmage.
  4. KD probably feels defrauded coming to Auburn and believing the BS about opening up the passing game and receiving a chance to earn an opportunity to excel as a receiver. I'll be much happier when I see reports saying Gus Malzahn is likely done as Auburn's head football coach. Until then, I understand players struggling with the fact that they chose to play under that moron.
  5. Stidham not allowed to audible

    Interesting that Stidham and Kerryon have both quoted the Gus mantra of just not executing while deferring on play-calling and the audibles issue, in a way that follows orders yet adds additional insight into Malzahn's idiocy.
  6. Anyone talk to Gus

    Oh so he took over Rhett's role when he moved...got it.
  7. Who Put the Brakes On

    Gus should have been throat punched after the Whirly Bird CoxCat garbage at Clemson last year, but I'm convinced he has been castrated and can't find where he left the boys. He put on a clinic of how not to call plays today.
  8. LSU Game Report Card

    Glad to see your post, Stat. I was worried a combination of the analysis of this game, drinking, and proximity to your gun might be a perfect storm for self inflicted wounds...then again, self-inflicted wounds are the story of Gus Malzahn's tenure as Auburn's head coach.
  9. Okay, some levity

    1. Receivers and Drops. Missing Kyle hurt. But our receivers have been off and on all year. We forgot about Hastings in the second half. I have no confidence in Kodi as a receivers coach. But Gus had to hire a crony... 2. Defensive regression. As we play better offenses, this is to be expected. But in this game, our offense couldn't give the defense enough of a break. Injuries hurt (literally and figuratively). But again, Gus assumed his mule-like stubborn stupidity and we went downhill fast.
  10. What were the excuses in the post game presser

    Gus does not seem to be self-aware. I think a series of mini-strokes and an anxiety disorder set in after 2013, and it's just a matter of how long until AU fires Jacobs so the new AD can fire Gus.
  11. Fire him now. Start the search.

    Emphasis added. Gus even looks stupid on the sidelines. I've said it before and I'll say it again, FSU broke him. Tre scored too fast, FSU came back and won, and Gus has been autistic at best ever since.
  12. Why Gus will Absolutely be our Coach Next Season.

    We can fire Jacobs and replace him in 45 to 60 days. It's not rocket science. Well it seems like it when you promote the chubby redneck crooked ticket office director to Athletic Director as we did with that blasted bumpkin. We need Jacobs gone by Thanksgiving. Period. If Georgia can fire Richt, we can axe Gus this season.
  13. Fire him now. Start the search.

    I really hate to regress to insults and name-calling but Gus is a ------- moron! It would be difficult to imagine a worse offensive game plan (except for whatever that Roper moron does for Muschamp and the nonsense that Nuss and McElwain the Shark Lover trot out in the Swamp). I might even take Bert Bielemma over Gus at this point...
  14. Fire Gus tomorrow. Fire Jay Jacobs today!!

    Lack of manhood and the fact that Gus is an idiot. The man's brain and bits have both shriveled to small raisins. It doesn't take much sense to figure that constant runs up the middle and poorly designed route trees in deep passes into double coverage can't make up 90% of the 2nd half play calling if you want to win. Our receivers dropped balls and Darius James does not need to be 1st or 2nd string without a blocking back to help him, but this is a complete fiasco.
  15. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    Not at all? Teams practice so they can execute. Coaches recruit their players, they condition them, they train them, they teach them, they motivate them, and they replace them when players consistently make mistakes. Our executive is poor, both at the schematic level, and with fundamentals such as ball control to avoid turnovers. Our team has looked unmotivated and disinterested. At this point, Gus reeks of incompetence, and as the head coach, yes this is on him. As a leader, as the leader, he gets the blame for our plethora of problems. As the executive who hired unqualified or underqualified staffers, Gus is responsible. Gus has been a head case since we lost to FSU, and he has been good at best in spurts since then, regressing with each year.
