This means we get to keep Jeremy Johnson.

He's 6'6", fast and has a cannon.

He also has a frame to put on 30 more lbs. So be prepared for MANY Cam comparisons.

That's some of the only good news through all of this. My guess is that he will be the starter next year. If Guz starts Frazier I will lose my mind.

Serious question: why did AU need a "search committee" to end up with Malzahn?

To look like we were actually considering other people?

Frazier would be much better in Malzahn's offense.

My guess is that the first time something goes wrong and Pat Dye and company begin to meddle, Gus will start looking for the first train out of town.

Pat Sullivan just got even.... :trollface:
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

Not if he plays well. He's been running that offense since he was 13.

You have to be able to throw to be a quarterback. He has shown over and over again that he just can't do it. Regardless of what offense you're running, you should overthrow 5-10 yard passes more often than you make good throws for 5-10 yards.

And yet he still can't hit a receiver 10 yards away.

Like all hires it will be at least two, maybe three years before anyone can say if it's a good or bad hire. Until then, anyone claiming to know one way or the other is only making an ass of themselves.

He's got a solid winning record as a OC & now as a HC. Will that translate to success for him on the Plains? We'll have to wait and see. Right now all I know for sure is that the man is now the head football coach of the Auburn Tigers. Until he proves he's not cut out for the job he's got my unwavering support.

I think it is a good hire. He knows the area, he is familiar with the SEC  and some of the current players were recruited to his system and now he can continue to recruit to the system.
