Why are Auburn fans acting like something has changed...

We can argue all day about whether or not Auburn should have 2 losses right now, but honestly, aren’t they still the same typical Auburn of the past.

Auburn had two successful seasons with Gus because of Cam Newton and Nick Marshal. Not because of something Gus did or didn’t do. Hell, Gus wasn’t even the head coach during Cam.

Yeah I wouldn't be comparing those two players.

Nick Marshall was ass. The fact that Gus almost won a natty with him says a little something, even if they were extremely lucky not to be a 4-loss team that season.

Right because all the coaches were salivating to coach a DB at the QB position.

All he did was teach him how to run a read option. If they end goes for you hand it off. If he stays outside keep it up the middle.

I think them firing him would actually be a mistake and one reason a lot of SEC programs are in trouble right now.

It's completely unreasonable to expect your coach to contend for the national championship most years, it just is.

Malzhan's results at Auburn are at or above Auburn's historical expectations.

Alabama's abnormal level of consistent success, combined with the playoffs now being the end all be all of college football, have made fanbases expectations pretty unreasonable.

Literally that’s mostly what marshal did but he ran a 4.3 to 4.4 forty so when he broke he was gone. Plus they had a good line that season. Any passing he did was much easier due to the success of the running game. Trust me, he didn’t have Marshal in the pocket making check downs and audibles at the line. Auburn’s success has come from the most simple concept, hurry up no huddle option read with passes mixed in to confuse the defense. It only works with a fast QB and a good line. Something which Gus has neither of this season.

Amazing luck they had both in '13 and '10.
In'13, everyone remembers the Bama and Georgia luckfests, but there were also the games against State, where it took a last minute drive to win, because State couldn't make a first down to run out the clock. And there was the non-horse collar call on Johnny Football that allowed Auburn to hold on to a win.

In' 10, State also had them beat, but State both dropped a pick six INT and a pass late that would have put the Bulldogs ahead. Took OT to beat Clemson at home, had to come back and beat South Carolina by a TD, and then there was the crazy ball bounce game in Tuscaloosa. (how does a fumble roll 30 yards into the endzone for a touchback?)

So is that something that Malzahn figured out or is it still all about Marshall?

Gus was lucky that a DB could throw for 339 yards and the GW score too?

Auburn is an 8-5 program historically, with the occasional miracle season and a *national championship* every 50 years to keep the delusion of equivalency with college football bluebloods alive. This is documented and irrefutable.

yeah, the one that was so woefully underthrown, it took a couple of UGA DBs to tip it over to the AU receiver.

Easily distracted by word associations? I quoted tbe State GW TD that you brought up. Keep up.

He was only like a 4.5 guy, but he was dynamic and incredibly strong

Elite playmaker with the ball, but it wasn't elite speed but a combo of traits
