    the guys behind the curtain know that people have a clue so they do this and everyone says "wow they are really cleaning house". They aren't Gus is just a much of a puppet to them as Chiz was. A more competent Puppet? Sure, that's not hard to be. I'd also put money on them using this house cleaning as a NCAA deflection strategy.

    That's a good point about the ncaa.

    We'll see for sure, but I have a gut feeling that Malzahn will be more successful than many here are admit, assuming he's not reigned in by the Board and it's friends.

    Now how he gets to be successful will be the rub, and for how long he is the coach will be anyone's guess. I do feel like he'll be the next Petrino in that Auburn will be a strong 3rd in the division, occasionally working into second place.

    Perhaps getting rid of the entire staff is a way to lessen what the NCAA has in store for them.. Maybe the boogs are throwing the NCAA a preverbial bone.

    I wonder if he'll try to get D. Craig from (FSU?) to help with the recruiting?

    I actually agree with you. Gus does seem to be a better game day coach than Chiz, again that ain't hard. What is yet to be known is if he can recruit and develop players. I see gus making them competitive, a 7-8 win team that occasionally steals a big game or two. In other words he'll take them back to the Tubbervile days. Of course that means that the boosters and pupetmasters will have to resort to the same old aub tricks (assuming the ncaa doesn't hammer them on the current stuff) as what we know to be their rightful place won't be good enough for them.

    Why? He could have kept TT and CL if he wanted to stay on that road.

    Jay Tate reporting Trooper out at AU

    A caller on JOX yesterday said Trooper was the glue holding the barn together, that they had to keep him.
    I guess their fans will be disappointed in this move.

    Anybody with brains should realize you can't keep a fake thug like that around, it's a smart move getting rid of him.

    You do realize success at both Bama and *U is defined by beating each other. Once Gus goes 0-3 or 0-4 against Bama/Saban he will be gone also and he won't be considered successful.

    Getting Daniel Craig would be great for AU recruiting.

    Or Chris, if you prefer.

    Hope this isn't the first step toward the thorough housecleaning that program so desperately needs....I kind of like the way it's been.
    Malzahn can't fire, Dye, Rane, or Lowder.

    That was my point. It was posted that he wanted to keep TT, but was overruled. If that's
    the case, he could possibly bring in D. Craig - same kind of recruiter as TT, right?
