Paul Finebaum Tells Head Coach Gus Malzahn To Leave Auburn This Offseason
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
On Monday morning, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum told Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn it's time to leave this offseason. This comes after a weekend of Auburn losing to Georgia 21-14 to fall to 7-3...
quote:

“I don’t know why anyone thought Auburn was going to win the game because these are the way these games end up,” Finebaum said WJOX-FM. “It’s so predictable, and it’s really so sad. This is an Auburn team that isn’t far from being undefeated. I’m not going to go that far, but they could be pretty close. They could certainly be in the mix and they’re not now. This Iron Bowl now sets up in a strange way. Instead of Auburn hosting the No. 1, 2 or 3 team in the country with the best quarterback, they host a team that is really sideways without its star quarterback and the perception now is if Gus Malzahn can’t beat this Alabama team at home, what Alabama team is he going to beat.”

“I don’t know the machinations or what’s going on behind the scenes. Listen, we can whisper this, or we can scream it at the top of our lungs, if Gus Malzahn finishes the season 8-4, the appetite for him to return is going to be fairly muted at Auburn,” Finebaum said. “It will be below 50 percent. Gus Malzahn needs to leave. He needs to find somewhere else to go because he can continue, it’s like if you keep banging your head against the wall, you’re still going to get the same result. You’re going to have a headache and you’re going to feel terrible. You can quote Einstein or you can quote me, and I don’t see much of a path forward for him.”
Should he leave?

Big "Ears" Paul Finebaum is a Alabama Elephant "Homer" no doubt. He needs to keep his "Trunk" mouth shut and be more reasonable and a less bias commentator. He'd gain more respect than letting his mouth over load his "Arse"!

Gus to Pawl: You first.

“Paawl” is the worst. He’s panIcking, and waiting on Steve Wilkos to take his job.

So glad 104.5 took him off the radio. Best decision ever.

I hope Gus and Joe Moorhead stay at their present jobs forever.

How does Finebaum still have an audience on ESPN? Get rid of Finebaum ESPN - or move him to the Disney channel.

He can be an extra on Star Wars...no makeup required.

Auburn would be foolish to get rid of Gus. He is perhaps the best coach they’ve ever had.

I’ve had enough of Gus. Mismanagement of play clock, absolutely terrible play calling, young QB not improving. What sealed it for me was this past Saturday 2 nd quarter with 1:38 left until half down 7-0. 3 straight passes that did not even run 38 seconds off the clock. Absolutely pathetic!

Gus ain't leaving without that buyout. I promise you that.

I get Auburn is a program that expects to be championship calibre, but their losses so far are to #1 LSU, #4 UGA, #10 Florida, and they're about to play #5 Bama. They beat #6 Oregon. That's a freaking brutal schedule.

And next year maybe worse

Pawwwl is right, if Gues doesnt beat this BAMA team he is never going to live it down

Why does he have a hard-on for Gus? Gus is continuously putting competitive teams on the field.
Reply20 days
Competitive is OK at Arkansas or Kentucky or Vandy, but Auburn expects better than that. It's really that simple.

Good for business.
