    The High Cost of Holding Onto Gus

    So who’s responsible for making sure they execute? I’m not trying to knock you I’m sure you are good at your job. But isn’t that what you get paid for is to teach these guys to execute. When I see players continue to make the same mistakes over and over again, then in my book it’s on the coach . I know as a coach you would rather deflect that but good coaches like Saben and Belichek , take action to cure the problem. Do you not think Saben has down years? Of course he does, like when he finishes second instead of first. Simply put “winners” find a way to win they don’t spend time making excuses.

    Big Plays Given Up By Our Defense

    You are so right Carl . And this is signs when you have lost the team. People think it’s just when they won’t play but it is also when they start to play scared. Not of the other team but of theirselves. They no longer trust theirselves . That’s why you are seeing players out of position. They are leaving their territory because they are not confident in theirselves or their teammates .Thats why I blame coaching. This is where they have to step in and repair the mental process just as much as the physical process .

    Leath on Malzahn

    My point was that if he put him off till after the SEC game , no way was Gus going to Arky and miss it. After the game then things would have been entirely different. No way he takes Arky money if AU offered say 5 at 6.5. He knew he couldn’t win at Arky. If after he lost like he did maybe Leath would have told him “have fun in Arky” .

    Leath on Malzahn

    You know dang well if Leath had told Gus that we would wait until after the SECCG to do any contract Gus would never have left for Arky while he was still facing a possible CFP game. He would have waited till after. Then the price especially the buyout would have fallen dramatic. Anyone with any common sense would have told him he could leave or we will talk after the SECCG.

    Leath on Malzahn

    No it sounded like me he was saying he hired AG to make decisions like that and he is backing what AG said. Sounds to me he is trying to divert the blame away from him making the contract last year to blaming AG if things go south. Anyone else pick that up ?

    Deshaun Davis on fake FG

    No but I am saying that Uga should have asked him to apologize. Do you really think if one of our parents did this live on tv we would at least request they make a public apology. What kind of presidency does it set for the players. I applaud my kids and grandkids but I do not flip off or make gestures at opposing players. How would Swift’s dad react if it was turned around. I bet he would not like it.

    Deshaun Davis on fake FG

    Maybe I should be more clear but it sure looked like his dad was doing a throat cut pantomime when they showed him in the stands as Swift was running to score. Am I wrong at what I saw or are their folks that think that’s ok? I know that kids get thrown out of games for it are parents not held to the same standard ?

    Deshaun Davis on fake FG

    Also I always agree with what Spurior said one time when he was asked about running the score up. Not only did he mention the remark about his job to score yours to stop. He also mentioned that it didn’t matter if it’s the second team or walk-I s, if they are on the field their job is to score. He didn’t want to send somebody in and them just wimp around because the next week they might bring that same attitude.

    Why was it unexpected that the QB play was bad ? Pretty much standard for any QB that Gus has for more than a year. They usually all go downhill. 🤔

    Monday or Tuesday after the IB

    AG’s response was not planned . A reporter caught him off guard so he answered what he could. Sometimes in a position like that you answer the question as where you are publicly at the moment even though you know the private communications is much farther along. I have very little doubt that Gus is gone before a bowl game. My guess now is he will be allowed to resign for less money rather than being fired. We will see in two weeks.

    Monday or Tuesday after the IB

    He has two choices at the moment. Fire Gus and take a chance the board might keep him or not fire Gus and get fired immediately and AG will fire Gus. Options 🤔

    Georgia Game Report Card

    Yea just read where DD talked and he didn’t mince his words. He admitted they played bad including him. Wish our coach had as much integrity as DD . He even said while everybody on D screwed up he owned it because he was te on the field guy responsible for getting them in position. Don’t care what anybody says DD is a full grown Auburn Man. War Dam Eage Mr. Davis.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    Remember Chiz wasn’t a big name at the time he was limited who he could hire. Gus has some success at Arky and Tulsa ( more because of he had at QB remember he got a shot at Arky because of the 5 star QB he coached atbSpringdale and brought with him) that’s why by 2011 Chiz could see Gus offense meant to continuously change and Gus couldn’t do that. A lot of folks use versions of his NHHU ( which was and is a version of the 2 minute drill in the NFL with some running added) but they change them up every year.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    Exactly. Not only because he would still intrude but because basically he is a one trick pony. He thought up something outside the basic concept and it worked early on. Doesn’t last because someone builds a defense for it and he doesn’t have a counter. He is just no HC material . HC material is who looks at long term building not short term . Gus has no vision for what he wants AU to be 5 or 10 years down the road. Probably why his recruiting sucks, especially for OL and QB . If you need one for next year go JC but recruit long term for guys that can truely be built into a mold you want.
