    Re: Apparently Auburn hires gus

    Aurbren just hired a new head coach and the only thing barn fans are worried about is keeping Trooper Taylor so they can hold on to a couple of recruits. unreal

    Charles Barkley was quiet during this search. I'm surprised he didn't push for them to consider a minority coach. After that being such a big deal last time, nobody even made a peep about it this time.

    If I were the goobers I would have done whatever it took to get Charlie Strong.

    This hire feels like a joke almost.

    Well, if Ellis Johnson is the new DC, why is Van Gorder being retained, as you say?

    Pretty sure it was announced that all the staff had been canned by Malzahn.

    Kleph from rbr I think said it best for me.
    Gus showing some gumption and not just being the next yes man to patrick dye. So, basically, he has already done more in two days than his predecessor did in four years.

    Something had come out at first about the string pullers making him keep the staff in place. Either that was false, or Gus showed some intestinal fortitude and told them what they could do with that idea. I hope it's the latter. I can just picture the look on patrick's and bobby's faces when someone finally tells them to back off.

    Re: My black helicopter theory about Gus and AU

    So EJ is hired as the DC @ $800k per year for 3 years. CGM is hired as head coach for $2.3 mil a year for 5 years BUT only $500k is base salary and the other is incentives. Looks like the bean counters are all over this one now that they have to shell out $11 mil for the buy out.

    Wonder how much they will have left for the rest of the staff?

    I know a few TN fans that would love to have Trooper back...

    That is excellent news Malzahn and Ellis Johnson. That is like getting a Christmas present and finding out you won the lottery the next day. I am as excited as the aubs.

    They can stop worrying. Trooper is a memory there now.
