To tweak that theory a bit, it's possible the BOT wanted him to fire Bret and they also told him who to hire and to THAT he said no.

True. Jesus, the BOT picking a coach scares the hell out of me.

at this point I'd put money on Gus being the next head coach. I think someone with power to make changes is just entirely smitten with him and we made him an under the table offer he couldn't pass up.

To me, all this points directly to GUS.  You guys may be right.

Mr Integrity? Unpossible!

I hope the BOT is so pissed off at long, they bring Bobby back just to spite him.

Supposedly he really massaged the numbers on the bond issue. That’ll get you fired for cause in a heartbeat

Nothing like mortgaging the future of the athletic department on shady numbers then sticking to your guns on a coach who will drawing crowds next year that wouldn’t fill up a medium sized Texas High School stadium.

The names I've heard coming from them, with the exception of the guy from Howlin N' Shit who is supposedly out now, are all quality candidates.  None of those names include Gus.

First it was Norvell and Howlin' N' Shit.  Next it was Norvell and Matt Campbell.  I think it's easy to see the constant here. 

Even if the BOT is making this hire, they need to get an AD in place ASAP.  We made the mistake in basketball of trying to hire a coach when we didn't have an AD in place.  When our "sure thing" Billy Clyde fucked us and went to Kentucky, no one worth a shit would consider us because they didn't know who their boss would be.  I don't want to end up with the football equivalent of Pelphrey.

I was a big Gus fan early on.  I still think he's a fantastic coach.  Seems like a lot of eyebrows were raised over the years about his integrity.  Handling of players.  Lies.  His wife.  I remember the fake injury bullshit.  Something seems to be up with Lashlee leaving.  I hate to do Auburn any favors by taking a coach they dont' want.  Anyone want to outline the Mal-a-zahn issues at Auburn for us?

quarterback development.  downfield passing game.  sideways offense gets bottled up by good defenses.  can't get a first down once behind the chains.

No you're not.

I won’t be done with the program, but I won’t much give a shit anymore until he’s gone.

I wanted Gus after Nutt, and would have been happy with him after Petrino/Smile.  That wound has widened and festered for too long, now, and with the types of people who are gung-ho on Gus, the program would become more radioactive than when Nutt was there.

Gus has been mediocre at best at a school with more resources and better recruiting grounds.  He’ll be mediocre or less here, and 5 years from now, the whole program and state will be aflame in civil war.  Again.

My only opposition to Gus is that we shouldn't hire someone that we can't fire without alienating major boosters.  If he replicates Burt's record here, a distinct possibility (excluding years 1 and 5), we'd have 2005-2007 all over again.

One reason Lashlee left is because he wanted to go more than 2 reads with his QB and develop them. Gus wants to keep it at a 2 read maximum and recruit athletic freaks for the most part at QB. Gus has put himself  in a box and his Auburn history proves it. Cam spoiled him and he hasn’t developed a QB since or really ever.  Lashlee wanted more than that.

Totally agree with all of that.

Plus, we dont just need another SEC retread. Let's go get a young guy with shit to prove and let him do this.

The above is my biggest issue, he and his cabal are not looking out for the best interests of the Razorbacks, and never have.
It's always been about Gus

A fucking for the AGES. Gutless motherfuckers every one of them, from the replay man to the entire officials crew.  May the faggot, cowardly bastards rot in hell.  Gutless fucking pussies.

He took a 50% pay cut to go to UConn, with the squad Auburn had coming back, because of disagreement on QB development?   ???

He took the blame and was the escape goat for Gus when Lashlee wanted to do more with the QB/offense and Gus wanted to keep it at 2 read max. Head coach wins that discussion every time.

If we hire Gus, I'll be disappointed. I'll give him a shot, like I do every coach, but don't like him. Time to start anew.

If a committee picks our next coach, I’ll give Butch Davis 4-5 years to get it fixed, just like I would have any other coach.
