    I hadn't seen this discussed, but the guest on Murph and Andy mentioned that Malzahn is headed back to Auburn. Any chance that this was planned last year because he knew that Chizik would fall apart? It must have been difficult for him to be coaching under a coach like Gene. I wouldn't be surprised if he was calculating that he would only be at ASU one year before he got an SEC job.

    Not really that surprising I was kind of surprised it has not been talked about much. I still claim Malzahn won Auburn their NC, not Chizik. Chizik was screwed when Gus left.

    It would make sense. There were always rumors that Auburn had told Chiz to go get head coaching experience somewhere else before they brought him back. Wouldn't surprise if Malzahn was on a similar plan.

    ESPN is just breaking the story that Auburn has hired Gus as the next coach.

    ESPN confirmed! Auburn is now one of my favorite teams. I count every win Guz has as a discredit to Gene's national championship.

    Surprisingly a lot of Auburn fans aren't very excited about this at all.

    They are a Sunbelt powerhouse and definitely should have been selected for a bowl ahead of us.

    Take that, A-State. He would not have been your coach in the Liberty Bowl in any case.

    Think Gus offers Gene the DC position?

    New John Grisham book. A man goes through a rapid advance like never before seen in college football. After winning a National Championship as an OC by himself along with the help of a Heisman winning QB bought by "The System" the man schemes to tear down his former employer only to get the head coaching gig. This is an epic thriller that will leave your jaw on the floor through all of the twists and turns.

    Gus Malzahn is The Accountant.

    This was the obvious move, visible from miles away. Congrats to him. He can go ahead and do a fine job. or not. It's all good.

    This nails my feelings exactly. Auburn was a punchline when Chizik was there - now they just go back to being an entitled football team that I don't really care about.

    I wouldn't read it, but I'd probably rent the movie adaptation.
