The best we can get is Kirby or Gus? Pathetic!
That is totally unreasonable. KS and Gus aren't my first choices either, but if one of them is our next HC it won't a pathetic failure.... come on. They are both winners with plenty of positives that far outweigh any negatives that they have.
Not sure how hiring Kirby Smart or Gus Malzahn would represent "how far Auburn has fallen." I think both have the potential to be very good coaches at Auburn and are right in line with hires over the past 30 years. During that time, Auburn has hired the head coach at Wyoming, head coach at Samford, head coach at Ole Miss and head coach at Iowa State.
While Auburn hasn't hired a top coordinator, plenty of top programs have had a lot of success going that route including Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma and Florida State.
As I said last night, if the UGA job were open today, KS would be near the top of their list and probably hired. And all the experts would be hailing it as a great hire just like they did when Muschamp was hired at UF. I just don't understand the rash negativity from you if you are actually an AU fan.
Bryan aren't you a little but underwhelmed though with the level of interviews we did though? I mean at least schools like Ark, and Tenn are shooting high even if they are getting turned down. We didn't even interview a big name? They may be great choices, we have nothing to go on for Smart (as a HC) and a little more for Gus but not much. Aren't you even a little shocked with the choices we made?
Kirby Smart is a much better hire than Dye was at the time or Terry Bowden or Gene Chizik or Doug Barfield. So I don't see that we've fallen very far at all. And yet our last 3 coaches have all gone undefeated at least once . Get on board
Please take your negativity somewhere else! There really is no place for it at this time and point. If CKS is our guy, we need to get behind him and move forward. Could be the best thing to happen to Auburn Football in a long time. Time will only tell!
Run to the Hills! Run for your lives! We Comin'!!! WDE!
