    Do you guys really believe the conspiracy theories espoused here? Maybe I'm naive but I generally don't go with conspiracy theories until they're proven correct -- at that time, it's not a conspiracy theory. Just curious.

    Actually, their offense hasn't scored on us since 2010. They ran back a kickoff and scored on defense in 2011 and failed to score in 2012. Just wanted to point that out.

    I can only speak for myself, but as for me ... of course I don't. I do think there's quite likely something to the NCAA's continued interest in the Auburn program, and also to the belief that Auburn's boosters are too involved in the program for its own good.

    But I think that almost all the zany, elaborate theories are ludicrous on the face of it. Espousing them, IMO, makes us Tide fans look like petty fools.

    I guess we have a choice. We can subscribe to JessN's logic and follow the reasoning that the simplest explanation is usually the best. Or, we could believe that hidden evil genius puppet masters at Auburn have orchestrated an elaborate scheme to bring in Malzahn because "he knows where the bodies are buried."

    Re: To those who ask why Malzahn would take the AU job with the NCAA sniffing around.

    I think they want to bring back Malzahn because they think he can win football games. They recognize that competing against programs like Alabama, Georgia, and LSU in their current state using their own methods is an unwinnable battle. In 2010, they saw that an aggressive offense with a veteran O-line, a mediocre defense, a Heisman QB, and a raftload of lucky breaks could win a national championship. I think Malzahn gets a bad rap here just because he was at Auburn, and is not that far removed from high school coaching. He is, however, extremely organized and detail-oriented, and his system has shown that it works, even without Cam Newton at QB. The current situation at Auburn is dire, and it's hard to say anyone could get them competitive in a hurry, but Malzahn has as good a shot as anyone Auburn was likely to attract, including Petrino, in my opinion.

    Maybe he is a little insecure (his wife hints at that), and he could end up bombing at Arkansas State after Freeze's touch fades, and I did not see money offered to him anywhere near Auburn. He took the $10 mil + guarantee that he might not ever see again. There is that chance, and he is a little insecure.
