We might have just set ourselves back another four years.
Cammy Cam made both Chizik and Malzahn. Hard to believe Auburn can't do better than this. What's he going to do that Chizik couldn't? Maybe a little more offense, but does Auburn really think this guy can catch up and over take Saban and Miles for an SEC West Championship? Chances are yall WILL be doing this all over again in four years.

Well Auburn did win 8 games in Malzahn's first year at Auburn as the OC with Chris fricking Todd as the QB. The guy is a helluva offensive coach. Hell, they managed to win eight games even after Cam left with Trotter and Moseley...
but his lack of experience as head coach does make this somewhat of a baffling hire in my opinion. maybe even more strange than when Auburn hired Chizik a few years ago.
Sure, Newton was great but at least he had a veteran offensive line blocking for him in that 2010 season. The idea that Newton made both is false. He had a hand in it no doubt though.
