When he turns the offer down and signs his extension with them. Which could very well happen.

O.k., we'll just wait for the official announcement out of Auburn then to convince some that he's not interested.  If that's what it takes then fine.  Once this is over with I don't want to hear anyone saying this is his dream job.

I think Gus would be a good hire, but I’d prefer to move on from him simply due to all the cultish behavior, for and against.  Just not worth the trouble.

Let's be honest.... do you really think he would say he doesnt want to be at auburn with players  on both sides of him right after a tough loss?

There was no need for coach speak in that situation. He doesn’t want the job. Time to stop laughing living in the past.

He was sitting with three of his players,  as their Coach,  at their post game. He said what he had to.

Can see and will be is a big difference IMO.

The “can see” statement was in reference to Auburn being in the SECCG next year.

Gus has had plenty of time to take the offer.
Time to move on to Norvell before we wind up with a terrible hire because we waited on Gus too long.


Did you really think he was going to announce after losing the game in the press conference?

He may very well turn us down but what he said in a press conference as an employee of Auburn doesn't mean much.

That tells me that no contract extension was signed pre game and it was a “let’s wait until the game is over and then talk about pay”.  Gus hedges his bet on crushing Georgia and getting a huge payday and blows it.

Either he will be coach at AR or we can finally shut up about him being at AR. I’m so tired of Gus Bus envy. Give me Norvell and a great D coordinator.

Please call lane and tell him to pack up and get us out of this hole we have dug

Not true. Coach speak is we are going to sit down and discuss the future in a noncommittal way. He was very committed to being @ Auburn next year.


Yeah. Ok. Mullen said he wasn't leaving and looking forward to coaching Mississippi State in 2018. There are countless other examples. You don't want him here. If you think this means anything more than just normal coach speech not much I can say to change your mind.

Uh-huh.  There's a careful dance going on I think.

Personally I'd prefer Arkansas did hire Norvell.  That said the way Gus phrased the statement could also make sense if he is giving Auburn a last chance to meet Sexton's demands which figure to be higher than what he has on the table from Arkansas.  When they don't agree he can say in clear conscious he wanted to return and gave the Auburn admins a chance to show they wanted him back.  He's covered himself either way it goes down.

The "I hope to" commit puts all pressure on the Auburn brass to meet his demands.  If not, he's gone.

That only works if he doesn’t take less here. If he does, he can’t blame auburn

I want to be?

The only way that doesn’t happen is if another school offers him more than Auburn or Auburn cans him.

Which one is he “concerned” about?

Sounds like Aubbie fans are as convinced he’s leaving as we are that he’s not coming. And both sides heard the same presser. Awesome job Gus. Now we wait.

What he will except at Arkansas, say for argument $6M/yr for 6 years likely will be less than what Sexton demanded of Auburn before the game.  What matter's in Auburn has to counteroffer to at least match Arkansas' offer on the table now or he can jump.  Sexton is of course shopping Arkansas' bid.  That might already have happened but if so Auburn ought to be making an announcement soon if they have agreed to an extension.

Exactly!  He is not going to commit either way.  Keep em guessing.  They meet his demands he stays - that simple.  They throw some weak a$$ contract extension at him he walks.  Honestly, I think that is what happens they are ready to get off the bus and would be happy to unload him on us.  The added benefit would be to keep a weakened west opponent week for some time to come.

Sexton had no doubt an outrageous demand on the table if Gus had won.  What he has had on the table since the end of the game is Arkansas' offer to Gus.  Auburn has to match that offer to show they want Gus as much as he want to be Auburn coach.
