Prior to last Saturday, I was off the bus unless Gus managed to win out. And I was not confident that he would pull it off. But Gus and Co. really earned some good favor in the dismantling of Georgia. For one I believe that saved his job because while I still think Alabama will come in prepared, as always, to play Auburn, I cannot see Auburn losing by more than 10 points... 9-3 with the three losses being close doesn't give Gus after Saturday. Secondly though, I have much more confidence in the staff to beat Alabama and I will happily pay my fare back onto the bus. If Auburn just plain gets beat and I haven't pulled my hair out because the gameplan (or lack thereof) I'll be pissed but like Clemson and LSU...I'll be okay with Gus returning because coaching consistency is soon to become a rarity. All in all, I think Saturday brought Malzahn's continued employment into a much more positive light than had been around midseason.
