Gus Malzahn
« on: October 23, 2017, 07:30:45 pm »

Since he left Arkansas to go to Tulsa I have seen both positive and negative comments about Gus on this board.  I am not suggesting him as Bielema's replacement, but I am curious about what level of support he would have, at least from the members of this board, if he was named head coach.  If you want to list your reasons for your vote, please feel free.

Was OC when Auburn won the National Championship and head coach when Auburn went back. Would have done well at Arkansas if HDN and the DC would have work with him when he was installing his offensive scheme, Heck the NFL started running the wildcat afterwards. The man is a winner and has made different teams offense better where ever he went.

Never understood the Gus hate on this board. Its not his fault what happened at the end of the nutt era. He went were he was offered the head job, what was he supposed to do not coach anymore until the Arkansas job came open? Is he not supposed to try and beat us now that he is at Auburn?

I wouldnít support him during the search/hire process bc I think there are better options,  but if he is hired then Iíll root for him and his teams like Iíve done every other Hog team.

I'd prefer several other candidates over Gus. Just because he has SEC experience doesn't mean he can take us to the next level. If we were ever going to hire him, it should have been back when we hired CBB, not now.

Malzahn-AR-OC--McFadden,Jones,Hillis,Monk
Malzahn-AU-OC- NC- Cam Newton
Malzahn-HC- very decent job when has good QB,recruits well to AU. Question would be can he do the same here. Lost a few he should of won,LSU last week, won a few lucky ones, GA,Bama.
I voted no because those who dislike him are adamant about it and they have good reason. Would really like the next hire to glue our state n fans back together and us all start over together and rally. Just a dream.

He is responsible for turning Arkansas State's program into one where good assistants go to start their careers. They play exciting football now and can actually score points. And he was only there for a year.

Absolutely. The man has been successful everywhere he has been. A lot of people on here just have a hate for him because he is a successful Arkansan elsewhere. That and he beatdown a lot of teams when he was coaching high school here.

He would be great. But we would rather hold petty grudges and bitch about being mediocre. It's been the Arkansas way since joining the SEC.

Actually, he followed Freeze so Freeze gets credit for that.

But here is the question for Hog fans.

How do you go from Nutt to Petrino to Bret? There is no common thread in those hires. No shared offensive philosophy, no shared defensive scheme.

Petrino and Bielema both approached Long while he was looking elsewhere.

His last three years, he's won 8, 7, and 8 games, respectively.  With Awburn talent and a $chool that recruit$ $eem to flock to like the $almon of Capi$trano.

Why does anyone think he'd be better here?

It's a done deal

You don't think it's a smoke screen? Personally, I don't think that would excite everyone. I think it would be a "he got run out of Auburn and lil ol Arkansas picked him up." I mean did you not hear what Fimebaum said about us holding a parade for an 8-win season? Petrino proved that the right coach can have high success. You want to excite the fanbase and recruits, then get a coach with high upside even though they may not have SEC experience. You think Matt Campbell, Norvell, Brohm, or someone similar wouldn't excite everyone? Look at how many younger coaches are winning compared to the older ones. SEC experience should not be a requirement in determining our next coaching hire.

I originally wanted Norvell but I would love to see Gus as the head hog. He is a bright football mind. He is young and enthusiastic. He already understands what it takes to compete in the SEC. He is a native son. He has written a book. I could go on. We should have hired him last time.

Well, he is not a native because he was born in Texas...but I get your point.

All coaching hires are a gamble (except Saban) so why not hire someone with a chance at pushing that ceiling hire? You're right, Gus would push us to mediocrity. Would he be better than CBB? Probably, but maybe not by much.

He has regularly destroyed us and has taken them to a national championship and won a sec championship. His teams are always in contention to win the west. but lets keep holding on to that blind hate..... while our program burns to the ground.

I have nothing personal against Gus, except of course that he is coaching a division rival, so he is to be hated.  I have doubts about how good his offense would be at Arkansas.  I also wonder if he would be able to attract anywhere near the defensive talent at Arkansas that he can at Auburn.  I also don't know what kind of relationship he has with Arkansas high school football coaches these days.

What makes you so confident that Gus could make us a winning program here? As much as I love my Hogs, we don't have the recruiting history that Auburn has had for many years. Do you think he can recruit the same type of players at Arkansas as he does at Auburn?

I'd really like to see a former Hog be our next coach, and wouldn't mind seeing what Gus could do with CK for 3 years.

Can't support Malzahn as Hog head coach. He would not be an applicant that comes in with a fresh slate. Divisive from day one.

Win at all costs. Remember the gun issue when he was at AState. Looked the other way until it became public knowledge. To me he is of the Rick Pitino mold but no hookers.

He had been there before and knows what goes on. So they offered and he accepted. You think they offered Chizik  because of his stellar 5 - 18 Iowa St record.
