No team will ever have won consecutive BCS championships other than Alabama.

The Barners are miserable right now for sure. Their first hope is that CNS just gets tired of winning BCS championships and wants to go to the lake to watch the ducks.
But now they are also turning to their new found hope of the Gus Bus. Have heard more than one Barner say lately that they believe this is the "best staff in college football."
Think about that...this staff hasn't won one game and they are already the "best."
I think I'll take CNS and the staff that he pieces together each year after his assistants run off to a promotion somewhere.

The barn lies in ruins and I couldn't be happier. I just spoke to one the other day who said that he felt that they still had the better coach. That alone made me laugh, but that wasn't even the best part. Naturally, I thought he was talking about Malzahn, so I replied "well, he did okay in his one and only season in the Sun Belt, so you may want to hold up for a moment and see how he does as a HC in the most powerful conference in college football before you make that declaration". This "huge auburn fan" who went to the barn-Oregon title game in 2010 did not know what I was talking about! He said "wait, what do you mean Sun Belt?", "next season will be Chizik's 5th at auburn, I know he has had a rough couple of years since winning the title, but he and his staff are on the verge of turning it around". This guy did not know that Chizik was gone and Malzahn was their new head coach! I asked him how in the world could he not know that and what he said next actually surprised me a it. This "fan" stopped following them so early on in the season, he missed the whole coaching change! I had to catch him up on everything from the Vanderbilt game to the Chizik firing, Malzahn hiring. When I told him that Ellis Johnson was their new DC, he smiled and said something about that being to their advantage because he once coached at Bama. If they are not the most fair weathered fan base out there, then I don't know who is.
I love that they hate us!!
I have new students moving into my class today due to the new semester. I asked them all to stand up one at a time and say their name and something interesting about themselves. I had a 10th grade boy standup and say, "My name is Henry and I love everything Auburn!"
I just looked at him and said, "You mean you love losing, Roll Tide."
Needless to say he wasn't very happy...
what he means is that they have the best recruiting staff money can buy.Originally Posted by BamaMoon[QUOTE
Ole' Gus really scares me. They were 16-10 without $cam Knewton when he was there and I don't see any of those on their roster right now. Gus is their Shula to get them through the impending NCAA trouble.

I'm married to one, and all she said to me the next day was "Well, congratulations". She was not happy.
