I am one of the people that was really pushing hard for Petrino. I thought not hiring Petrino was a sign of weakness from our athletic department. Obviously Malzahn had a plan and he sold it to our administration and they bought it. I'm glad they did. A coaching staff is much more than the Head Coach and CGM is putting together a great staff. Not sure Petrino could put together this strong of a staff. It definitely wasn't a hire I hated (CGM was my second choice) but it was the safe hire and now I know it was the right hire. I'm glad they didn't listen to me. WDE
My first choice was BP
2nd was GM
3rd was Kirby
4th was Strong
Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
Way to be a Leader on this board and set a fine example!

Actually, you are wrong. It was most defintely a sign of weakness.
Nationwide coaching search? Pffff....no we made the safe hire as usual.
Can't argue with a thing you stated, now sit back and enjoy the ride on the
Gus-Bus - WDE
ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
I would call Gus a difficult and certainly not safest of the hires. Prolly took a lot of guts to hire him, unproven as he is. Just my opinion tho.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Yea, I was on the B.P. wagon also, but I think the powers that be got it right, I had it wrong........
