Personally, I’m hoping he’s just working for a raise from Awburn.

Only a few people know the real truth, and I don't think they post on Hogville.

I have it on good authority that Gus is real.  As to what HIS chances - OR OURS are, I really have no clue.

The Arkansas fan-base is deservedly known as "The Mushroom Gang"; - - The Powers That Be keep us in the dark and shovel manure on us.

I wouldn't put any money on it.  There's several who think it'll come down to if Auburn beats Bama this coming week.  Many say if he wins he stays if not then he leaves for Arkansas.  Personally, I think his agent is using it to get Gus a sweeter golden parachute deal for when they completely turn on him and run him out of town.  Time will tell.

I plan to support both the new coach and new AD regardless of who is picked.  Whoever they are will be a much improvement over what we've had.

Yes it is a done deal with Gus, but it's anyone's guess at this point who the next AD is.  I don't think that one is a done deal, yet.

If the coach hire is already a done deal, who gives a darn who the AD will be?

Most everyone here cares who the next AD is, because that person leads the entire sports program, raises funds, supervises everything, makes coaching hires.  Jeff Long was good at fundraising and building facilities, but he couldn't relate to common fans and boosters.  You couldn't walk into his office and see him without an appointment like you could with Frank Broyles.

Not saying Gus won't be our next head coach, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this were all a smokescreen.  I think smokescreens were used when Bielema was hired and maybe even for Petrino.

Remember when Long allegedly offered Les Miles and no one even suspected Bielema?  Gus just has to play along to receive a nice raise out of it, like Miles did before him.  If it is a smokescreen, then the media likely doesn't have a clue, either.  In the end, everyone would benefit from it, except for Auburn.

At one point Gus was probably a strong possibility to become the next HC at Arkansas but Auburn's routing of #1 Georgia completely changed everything. It's more likely to be someone like Norvell rather than Gus.

Gus Malzahn responds to coaching rumors


Quote
Gus Malzahn said he ignores rumors connecting him to other jobs.

"Yeah. You ignore it because one week you're getting fired and the next week you're going to take another job," Malzahn said following No. 6 Auburn's 42-14 win over ULM. "I'm worried about the durn SEC West championship."

On Thursday, Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reported "big-money boosters at Arkansas and members of the university's board of trustees have been pushing" to hire Malzahn as their next head coach.

If Malzahn, who is signed at Auburn through 2020, were to leave for another job, he would owe Auburn the sum of any outstanding payments owed to his assistants who either don't follow him to a new employer or are not retained by the new coaching staff.

It's real and it's spectacular

I'm down in Texas. What is going on in razorback country? Is it real?

Depending on the outcome of the iron bowl this will probably direct his decision. If it’s close in a lose or he wins, we can forget him coming here. I’ve heard even though him and his wife wants to be closer to family, it’s going to be a struggle to recruit here. Personally, I just hope he’s not using us for leverage to stay in Auburn. I would consider that a big slap in the face. Also, he’s already 52 years old, does he still have the energy to go out and recruit. At face value he seems like a better hire, but Mike Norvell is 36 years old and seems to be moving in the right direction and he wants the job. Point is we shouldn’t be too hung up on Gus!

I agree.  When Auburn beat Georgia and the way they beat them, well it just fired up the Auburn fan base and got them "pro Gus."  If Auburn beats Bama, heck, Gus may get an extension and a raise out of it.   But if ole Nick puts a whoopin on Auburn down on the plains, Gus will be back to the hot seat.

And maybe its the up/down nature of being the Auburn coach coupled with always being little brother to Bama that would make Malzahn consider leaving what is definitely a better job to come to Arkansas where if he can win 8 games a year on average (with a 9 or 10 win season thrown in every so often), he can coach the rest of his life.

Personally I doubt Gus would come to Arkansas.  From what I read on here, some folks say he hates Arkansas--bad feelings left over from when he was here under Hootie.   But I guess the Razorback Foundation ($$$) along with Chancellor Steinmetz can put forth the best offer they can and see what Gus says.  If he says no, then head straight for Memphis and talk to Norvell before someone else snaps him up. He will be a hot commodity and teams will be coming after him.  Ole Miss wants him.  Tennessee might want him. He will be in play.

I hope Jimmy Sexton is playing the Arkansas BOT for a raise and extension at AUB.

I think here’s too much chatter about Gus to Arkansas for it to happen.

I believe that is what is going on.

I am putting to rest that Auburn is a better more successful program than Arkansas.


One only has to look at how many games the other 13 SEC schools had won in the previous 5 years before 2013, from 2008 – 2012, to see how good the Arkansas football program was when Bielema took over:
Games Won Previous 5 Seasons by SEC Teams – 2008 – 2012
Alabama – 61
Florida – 51
LSU – 51
Georgia – 46
South Carolina – 45
Missouri – 41
Arkansas – 38
Auburn – 38
Texas A&M – 37
Mississippi State – 33
Ole Miss – 31
Tennessee – 28
Kentucky – 27
Vanderbilt – 26

As anyone can clearly see above Arkansas was tied with Auburn for 38 wins between 2008 and 2012 before Bret Bielema arrived in Fayetteville and that includes the 4 win Total Disaster Season under John L. Smith in 2012 at Arkansas after Bobby Petrino dalliance with the blonde on the motorcycle so when Bielema arrived in town to coach the Razorbacks he was taking on a pretty good Arkansas Football Program.

Don't let the years of CBB fool you, we are a sleeping giant.  The right coach can come in here and start something really special.

I hope Jimmy Sexton is playing the Arkansas BOT for a raise and extension at AUB.

I think here’s too much chatter about Gus to Arkansas for it to happen.

I believe that is what is going on.

I believe you are on to something......

Sorry to say, Gus is not coming.  Often timing means everything.  We needed Bret to get through next year.

You are kidding, right?  Another year of Bellyma?  He'll no!!

This was not the year for Gus to come home.  Next year was.  It sucks.  I'm hoping that a young coach like Norvell can recruit with such little experience.

I am putting to rest that Auburn is a better more successful program than Arkansas.


One only has to look at how many games the other 13 SEC schools had won in the previous 5 years before 2013, from 2008 – 2012, to see how good the Arkansas football program was when Bielema took over:
Games Won Previous 5 Seasons by SEC Teams – 2008 – 2012
Alabama – 61
Florida – 51
LSU – 51
Georgia – 46
South Carolina – 45
Missouri – 41
Arkansas – 38
Auburn – 38
Texas A&M – 37
Mississippi State – 33
Ole Miss – 31
Tennessee – 28
Kentucky – 27
Vanderbilt – 26

As anyone can clearly see above Arkansas was tied with Auburn for 38 wins between 2008 and 2012 before Bret Bielema arrived in Fayetteville and that includes the 4 win Total Disaster Season under John L. Smith in 2012 at Arkansas after Bobby Petrino dalliance with the blonde on the motorcycle so when Bielema arrived in town to coach the Razorbacks he was taking on a pretty good Arkansas Football Program.

Don't let the years of CBB fool you, we are a sleeping giant.  The right coach can come in here and start something really special.

There's some truth to what you're saying. There's Alabama, then everyone else to varying degrees depending who their coaches are. With the right coach we have everything you need to win. We're certainly not an inferior program to Auburn outside of their more recent successes.

Before Gus beat GA last week his seat was smoking.  I am pretty sure had he lost to both GA and ALA he would have been fired and he knew it. If he has another bad year he is gone. I know what I would do if I were Gus, I would find another HC'ing job. It might not be Arkansas but I would leave Auburn, those fans are fickle.
