This Is What Paul Finebaum Is Hearing About Auburn Coach Gus Malzahn
Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sport
While appearing on “The Roundtable” on WJOX 94.5 Monday morning, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum shared what he's hearing about Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn after his team's loss to South Carolina this past weekend...
quote:

“For all of us that have defended Bo Nix, it’s difficult to defend him after Saturday and you can blame anyone you want and everyone wants to blame Gus Malzahn, but ultimately, you have to make some plays and maybe you have to have better plays to be put in,” Finebaum said. “The Auburn offense is a mess and I don’t know how this is an easily fixable situation. You start doing the math and you start saying thank goodness for the head official in the Arkansas game or otherwise, we would be talking about a dire situation right now. You have to search three or four years back to see a Gus Malzahn offense working consistently.”

“The short-term question about the long-term stability of Auburn remains the same, and is there someone there who is going to change the direction, and I’m not talking about the athletics director because we hear the same thing out of athletics directors at Auburn,” Finebaum added. “Can we all agree that the athletics director does not call shots or will not call the shots? It’s a problem and there’s no getting around it, and I’ve been pretty steadfast in my support of, ‘Hey Malzahn’s done this and Malzahn’s done that, and the buyout’s too much,’ and I’m sure you already heard it and I’m sure you’ll hear it all day, but the Auburn family is growing very weary.”

He'll get another year because of the ridiculous buyout.

You could be right. I'm just not sure about Napier. But if I have time to stop somewhere and ask. I could let you know more or if anything is moving.

Gussy needs to go but Paul always talks down on Auburn. Does he honestly think the AD at his beloved Alabama calls the shots? I mean that is pretty rich for him to always say something like that.

Ah, convolute much finebaum. How is it you still have a job? Well I know you not sleeping your way to the top, so you can define the business of football only the bottom understands. Huh? Ah, what was I trying to say? ... oh yeah. finebaum and Malzahn are IDIOTS, and if the game's on the line with time running out and you think Bo Nix can pass the ball down the field to win the game you're an IDIOT. #howdotheseidiotsstillhaveajob

Gus has only been good when he's had a legit dual threat, and I mean great runner not just a runner. Have no idea why he's changed up so much since then.

Nix is horrible. SEC FOY in 2019 was a huge joke. He needs to be benched if GM wants to keep his job

Saw the kid in HS. His arrogance gets in the way of his athletic ability.
