    That sounds like a description of an above average offense.

    Chris Todd had the benefit of a solid OL--an OL recruited and developed for smashmouth football. That's going to be the real recruiting challenge for Gus.

    Cam Newton had that benefit even more than Chris Todd.

    Chris Todd did well in 2009. However, the SEC hadn't experienced that Gus offense. It wasn't the one he showed while at Arkansas. Cam did well in 2010 because he's unreal. 2011 didn't work as well because the OL was young (sidenote - was this year and will be next) and SEC coaches were catching on to Gus.

    Two things undid Gus in 2011. Auburn whiffed on its QB recruits, and Chizik meddled.

    Re: Jay Tate reporting Trooper out at AU

    Foster made a comment in an interview with AL.com that he would go where ever Trooper went. Here's betting that you see Trooper hired by Georgia within the next few weeks. Here's a different article, but basically saying the same thing.

    Even with Scam, GM's offense, and a SR loaded team, the barn had a LOT of luck to win the bcs.
    3pt lucky saves against KY and MS ST, an OT win vs Clemson where the receiver dropped a perfect pass that hit him in the gut, a win at SC when SS and Garcia had their worst game of the year/career, and a 3point last play field goal against OR.

    The barn will be a 7-8 win team with 9-10 wins occasionally.

    I'm not so sure he's hireable with the NCAA microscope that would be coming with him, not to mention that he can't develop the talent he brings in. I do think Foster ends up at UGA but not anything to do with Trooper.

    Yea thats what they have been saying was the reason he left. He was not able to run the offense like he wanted to in 2011. Also Cheezwiz did not even want Cam, Malzahn had to jump up and down on a table to get his way on that one.

    If you offered the typical Alabama fan the choice of an 8-5 season with a win vs the barn, or an SEC Championship, but with a loss to the barn, the significant majority would take the championship.

    The barn, however, defines itself by beating us. Those guys would be happy with 4-8 forever and always, so long as one of the four was us.

    Visit their museum and compare it to the Bryant Museum. The Bryant is a monument to SEC and National Championships. Theirs is a monument to wins over us.
    They don't have a museum.

    They have been on probation (7) three times more than they have NCs (2).

    This is a clear indication to me that Gus Malzahn is being allowed to take control and hire only the people he wants. He is going to be successful and Auburn will be in the mix for the SEC West within 2 years.

    But it has been posted somewhere on here that he wanted Trooper and was turned down by the PTB!
