    Malzahn back to Auburn?

    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.

    Gus is no dummie. I think you're exactly right.

    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.

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

    Besides Wisconsin, what other job is out there that is open? I highly doubt Rhoads would leave us for Wisconsin, but are there any other high end jobs? I was a little worried about Arky and Auburn. I guess Tennessee a little, but I think they are going to have to have somebody that makes a bigger splash and a bigger name. I've got a feeling the Pitt job will come open again, but not knowing where that program is going I don't think Rhoads will go back to Pitt.

    So I would have to think we are safe for now.

    Arkansas and Auburn were the two that were thrown out a lot, so it's nice to have those books closed. I haven't heard CPR mentioned for Tennessee at all, so that seems like a non-factor. Wisconsin opening up is a new annoying, little wrinkle, but I can't say I'm too worried about that. Pitt is a complete non-factor, imo.

    Re: Malzahn back to Auburn?

    ESPN.com is reporting that Charlie Strong is on the top of Tennessee's list. So you can prolly take CPR off that list too.

    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.

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