Gus Questions
« on: October 11, 2017, 02:21:17 pm »

I know that there is a GUS thread but I would like to go a little more in depth.  I am not saying that I think he should or should not be hired.  That's not the purpose of this post.   Quite frankly, I have always thought he could never be the head hog due to past history.  However, I do have questions that I would be interested in what people think. 

Would Gus entertain the idea of coming back?  Is this his dream job?

Would the administration consider hiring him?  What do the money people that are currently being discussed on here think of Gus?  Do they like him?  Does time heal most of the wounds? 

If Gus went like 11-2(remember he was on hot seat entering season),  would he still consider coming to Arkansas and would that be attractive to our administration and perhaps make them forget the past?  Would the fans forget the past due to his success this season?

Lastly, Gus's system relies heavily on having a good QB.  How do you think Cole Kelley would fit into that system? 

I'll hang up and listen.

Yes it makes perfect business sense to make a move to a school that has more of a challenge to recruit to try and beat the same teams that you year in and year out are having trouble beating with a program that gets better players.  I think you might be on to something here.

This. Take Auburns record while he has been there and subtract 2-3 wins each year. That would be what he could achieve at AR.

I like the depth of this new thread and the way it analyzes new, groundbreaking issues and information. Congratulations. Not many threads do that in such a thought provoking way.

True but Arkansas doesn't expect 10 win seasons every year and SEC titles every 3-5 like Auburn...so expectations aren't AS high so I think it's a push and comes down to where he would rather be.

I wouldn't want Gus here unless he was rid of Kristi.  Divorced, sold into slavery, pushed off a cliff, whatever.

Gus:
1. Won a national championship at Auburn (he was the main factor in the coaching staff lead by Cheesehead, who failed when Gus left).
2. Was the big source of Arkansas's success the year he was at Arkansas as offensive coordinator, turning around an offense and making it the most exciting and successful in the SEC.
3. Has Arkansas roots and can recruit the state. Well respected by high schools everywhere as the ``high school'' coach made good.
4. Faces some barriers at Auburn -- overshadowed by Alabama -- but has done reasonably well there.
5. Great developer of talent.

Not saying he is THE guy, but we could do a lot worse. And we have done a lot worse.

And there are cheating allegations being investigated at the FB program in Auburn.   If he's at Auburn, he's tainted.  No thanks.

Did not know that. We definitely need to steer clear of anyone associated with that.

If you don't think he should be hired, why did you start the damn thread?

Gus Malzahn finally gave the Hog fans a reason to have hope in 2006.  +1  Gus left and kept his mouth shut about Arkansas, Nutt.  +1  Gus won and set records everywhere he went starting with Arkansas as the OC, on to Tulsa as the OC. on to Auburn as the OC, on the ASU as the HC where he took the youngest squad in the conference and won the conference championship in his first year as HC there. +1  Gus went back to Auburn as the HC and played for the NC his first year. +1  Gus is  now in his 5th season as the HC at Aubbie and has had trouble there because mostly he didn't have a QB that could operate his system and that, to me, shows a weakness -1  Gus is one of the better HCs in college football and BB couldn't carry his jock strap.  His current team is ranked and has one loss, to last years NC.  The horseshit about how he could never return to Arkansas because of------------------------------------------no one seems to give a factual reason is just horseshit.  He would make us a decent team but I agree he couldn't carry us as far as he has carried and will carry Auburn.  But it is very unlikely that anyone could.

LoL ,  you this is a secondary violation at best.  Did you even read the article?  The whistle blower story keeps changing.  Nothing will/should happen in this scenario unless the internal investigation thatís been ongoing pops up something more major.

Cam & Cecil Newton say... that Auburn is as clean as the driven snow. Fraud & cheating just don't happen down there.   ;)
