Season of misery is over for Auburn, and it is time for the program to move forward
Congrats to BAMA for the power that Saban has accrued, the coaches, the recruits, the fans, the works. I don't see how any talented athlete playing football can resist Alabama's call, so it isn't going to be easy to build a comparable program. Can it be done? You're darn right it can, and Malzahn just might be the man to do it. It takles the principles enumerated by PM, and Auburn can do every bit of it. Saban was outcoached in 2009 and '10. Then the train started coming off the track and didn't stop until it was a wreck. Doesn't have to be a wreck forever, and I doubt that it will be. The start has been made. Let's watch it grow and enjoy the fun.
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
I'm with you fellers, War Eagle!!!!!!!!
WE COMING . WAR EAGLE !
"Will Malzahn get there? Only time will tell. But if he does, he will get there by doing things his way, by staying true to himself and building his program his own way."
From a current un-named player: "Coach Malzahn immediately challenge the teams commitment to Auburn, and atitude, on the very first day"!
One of the many things that are positive about a Saban coached team is the lack of showboating after a great defensive hit, or stop, etc.
However, Alabama was/is still able to play with enthusiasm and emotion, it is only a discipline, and controlled type of emotion.
I believe that all Head Coaches & Coaches including CGM, would be wise to learn from Coach Saban, and yet still be able to play their own particular brand of football.
If you have to ask why I love Auburn so much...never mind
"Sadly, very few people will undestand" Not so. Very few people on the Auburn side even knew what sickness was growing, but Malzahn did and told the man it was taking root and growing. The man didn't listen and never allowed looks into the machine with a siickness that he was leading. Phillip knows what it will take, so does Malzahn, so does every coach Malzahn hired including the S & C coach. And so do we. Some had already learned the lesson,. and the rest of us learned during the 2012 class. Relax brother. We know that few will really know what's happening. But, as much as we would like to believe other factors are tells, the won/loss record aint lying. Missed tackles either are because that athlete can't, or won't, and coaches havent noticed because they havent been looking. Malzahn's team will be lookimg. Bet on it.
The NC game was a great victory for Alabama, but let's not get too carried away. Notre Dame was awful and should never have been in that game. Texas A & M and Johnny Football made Alabama look foolish. Georgia and LSU came close to beating them. Sure they beat Auburn like a drum this year, but so did everybody else. It will be interesting to see if Coach Malzahn can instill competitiveness in the Auburn program. One thing that troubles me is that some of the players who are considering joining the Auburn program are still playing the "beg me" game. You just don't see nearly as much of that stuff at Alabama. Some of the big names "committed" (whatever in the heck that means anymore) could be and should be helping recruit at this point in the recruiting season. Instead, they are waffling and acting like the world can't live without them. If they want to be on the team and part of the Auburn comeback, then they should start now. Some of these guys will need a serious attitude adjustment. I wonder if they can take it.
Ever to Conquer!!
I can't wait and see what Auburn will have under they sleeves

Alabama is on a remarkable roll and it doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon, particularly with Saban at the helm and his controlled system in place. And, as long as Mark Emmert is running interference for him, Alabama's run will remain unbridled.
