Let's not give them too many unnecessary clicks.


 No. 10: (Oct. 11, 2014) No. 3 Mississippi State 38, No. 2 Auburn 23

Auburn was the victim in perhaps the biggest win in Mississippi State history, which vaulted the Bullies to No. 1 for the first time. Auburn clearly wasn't ready for the Dak Prescott attack and all those cowbells, falling behind 21-0 in the first nine minutes. The Tigers haven't returned to the top two in the polls since.

No. 9: (Sept. 12, 2015) No. 6 Auburn 27, Jacksonville State 20 (OT)

Technically this wasn't a loss, but it was the most embarrassing victory in Auburn football history. The Tigers needed a touchdown with 31 seconds left simply to force overtime against the 41-point-underdog FCS Gameroosters. Auburn tumbled from No. 6 to No. 18 in the AP poll after this game. The Tigers haven't been ranked as high as No. 6 since. Jax State will forever own the distinction of scoring the first touchdown displayed on Jordan-Hare Stadium's massive new video board.

No. 8: (Nov. 29, 2014) No. 1 Alabama 55, No. 15 Auburn 44

Nick Saban beat Malzahn at Malzahn's own high-scoring game. Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall threw for a school-record 456 yards. The Auburn offense hung a record 630 total yards on an Alabama defense. The Tigers still lost by 11. It remains the most points the Auburn program has scored in a loss in regulation. It was the last time the Tigers had a prayer in the Iron Bowl.

 

No. 7: (Sept. 3, 2016) No. 2 Clemson 19, Auburn 13

This one has to be the most inexplicable game plan of the Malzahn era. The Tigers gained 38 yards in the first half as five different Auburn players took snaps and three different QBs threw passes. Despite all the head-scratching tomfoolery, Auburn still had two shots at a Hail Mary at the end to win the game against a Clemson team that would go on to win the national title.

 
No. 6: (Sept. 9, 2017) No. 3 Clemson 14, No. 13 Auburn 6

This was the worst offensive performance of the Malzahn era in terms of yards and points despite a new quarterback in Jarrett Stidham and a new offensive coordinator in Chip Lindsey. Auburn gained 117 total yards for the game, only 15 of them in the second half, and raised questions about whether Malzahn was meddling in the play-calling after vowing to retire his clipboard. The Tigers wasted a great defensive effort and a chance to upset the reigning national champs.

 
AL.com photo
No. 5: (Nov. 15, 2014) No. 16 Georgia 34, No. 9 Auburn 7

This is the worst loss by margin of the Malzahn era. Auburn scored on its first drive, then laid an egg the rest of the way. It was the fewest points scored by a Malzahn team in his first 49 games as the Auburn head coach. This defeat ended any last hope of repeating as SEC champions.

 
No. 4: (Nov. 12, 2016) Georgia 13, No. 9 Auburn 7

The Tigers scored on their second drive and didn't dent the scoreboard again with running back Kam Pettway out and quarterback Sean White hurt. After winning six straight games, Auburn blew a chance to make the Iron Bowl the SEC West title game. The Tigers haven't been ranked this high since this game.
AP photo
No. 3: (Oct. 14, 2017) LSU 27, No. 10 Auburn 23

The Tigers lost after leading 20-0, the biggest collapse of the Malzahn era. They lost a prime chance to move up in the polls with three higher-ranked teams getting upset on the same weekend. Auburn let the program's Death Valley losing streak extend to nine games. The offense gained just 6 passing yards and 54 total yards in the second half as the Tigers were shut out after halftime. They actually made LSU coach Ed Orgeron look good.

 
AP photo
No. 2: (Nov. 8, 2014) Texas A&M 41, No. 3 Auburn 38

The Tigers were still in the playoff hunt despite losing a month earlier to Mississippi State. They lost this game as a 23-point favorite to a true freshman QB in his second career start. It looked like football karma when the Auburn offense fumbled the ball away twice late in the fourth quarter with a chance to win. The program hasn't been ranked as high since. You could argue it hasn't been the same since.

 
No. 1: (Jan. 6, 2014) No. 1 Florida State 34, No. 2 Auburn 31

The Tigers, after winning a Malzahn era-high of nine straight games and the SEC title, blew a 21-3 lead in the BCS Championship Game. They retook the lead with a minute and change left but let Heisman winner Jameis Winston drive the Seminoles to the winning touchdown. It doesn't get worse than having a crystal football ripped out of your hands with 13 seconds left in the championship game.

He has taken one on Auburn period.  Auburn has become the team that wins SOME games they shouldn't, and shoots the bed on games they should win.  We are that team!

Is it not bad enough that we have to put up with the gumps and their walking all over everyone, but we aren't even middle of the pack with the rest of the country.

Here's my problem I don't see that.  What games have we won that we shouldn't?  Name the last one? Alabama 2013?...maybe? I wouldn't say we were supposed to lose that game.

BTW something missing from this list is the prayer in Jordan Hare yes I know not a loss, but another game where we were leading that we probably should have lost we were up 27-10 at halftime of that game. Hell it was 37-17 with 10 mins left.  Folks forget that. 

This shoot has been going on with Malzahn from the beginning most AU fans have just been ignoring it or blaming our talent.  It ain't our fudgeing talent

This is from teh ebay's about the UGA game:
Quote
While the Bulldogs had scored on three consecutive drives, Auburn failed to earn a single first down in the entire fourth quarter until one minute remained on the clock. After the ensuing kickoff, Georgia leading by 1, Auburn's offense took over at the 22-yard line having notched a mere three points in their previous four drives. Their stagnant offense had not found the end zone in over 23 minutes of play and had only crossed the 50-yard line once since their opening drive of the second half.

Sound familiar?

Post by: jmar on October 18, 2017, 12:31:14 PM
I like it that Scarbinsky won't let it go.
He legitimately wants Auburn to STAND UP!

He might go off the rails sometimes with the minor trivial stuff like someone in the program using foul language or recall details from some ugly past maneuverings by the PWB but he is ethical, reports facts, makes you think and seldom over-embellishes. And he's the most consistent in-state writer since Paul Bryant retired.

Auburn has to do something head first or ass-end first.

Trouble is we, and even to some degree Leath/power base do not know how long is too long to retain Jay Jacobs. It would certainly look suspicious and could make the entire athletic department more vulnerable to inquiry to just fire him. Reduced to special assistant to the president? Maybe. Surely Leath would gain the true facts from the law firm but I'm just kicking around a way to pacify an employee rather than a former employee with a possible axe to grind. We could always honor Jughead with a parade on Valentines Day.

Bottom line:
We don't know what J.J. knows and we don't know how he might react knowing his time is short.
I realize he needs to go, I'm right there with you. But let's hope the PTB are preparing for what could possibly be worse than just Person's lone transgressions as the Assistant Head Basketball Coach.

Either way I only know that Malzahn should already be gone.

Yes I saw an article which questioned why Auburn fans are in an uproar when its winning percentage is about on par for what should be expected.
Nevertheless, we should never accept mediocrity. And that's what we are getting. Just my thoughts.

agreed. 

putting on the brakes, getting conservative after a big lead...is it really that?  or how much is it an opponent making the right adjustments.     combination?

Here's the thing that the media and talking heads bring up.  That we are getting ahead of ourselves, maybe we aren't championship caliber yet. Gus is a good coach yadda yadda.

What they are missing....what they are all missing.  It's not about the wins and losses.  It isn't even about not being in the National Championship game.  I have said all along I don't expect to be like bammer, their run is incredible. 

The problem I have with Gus has everything to do with how we continue to look.  We continue to make the same mistakes over and over.  Nothing has changed.  He makes no changes.  We lose a game here or there, I get it shoot happens the ball bounces, but to continue to lose games the same way.  To continue to win games but look inept doing it.  In year 5...in essentially what is really year 9.  I'm done with him.

I should have made myself clear.  What I meant was the outside world looks at us like we nothing more than a flash in the pan.  We aren't a threat to win week in and week out.  It's painfully obvious that the entire football world knows that all they have to do is make some adjustments at half and they have a shot at winning.  I agree with everything you have to say.  Gus has been a one trick pony since day one.  We haven't gotten better, we are exactly where we've been every year with him.  That's the bad part of being an AU fan with him at the head of the table.  We look like shoot, we look good, we look like shoot again.  Somebody stop this madness!!!

Oh and by the way, this is 1000 for me.

I hate to say this way but if it will hasten his departure I hope we get up on the hogs about 24-7 and lose 30-27. I don't ever, ever want Auburn to lose but under CGM it is what I have come to expect. Make Garner the interim coach, let the OC and DC run their parts of the program and reevaluate everything after the B-ham bowl. Maybe JJ will be gone by then.

One thing that we must give Gus some credit for I believe is recruiting. We've always had good players but I think he brought it up a notch. And, he finally seemed to get the rest got guy over defense. I guess. Giving up 20 in the second half was a lot to do with offense and special teams.

Point is, I truly believe Gus was close to the winning formula. If he could've simply swallowed some pride and let Lindsay work, it may have worked this year.

In other words, he was close. He was more than a one trick pony I believe. But no cigar.

HE HAD HIS CHANCE TO STEP AWAY.
Auburn can recruit with or without him. I believe that.
And I maintain that Dabo and Gus started out on virtually the same level playing field.
Clemson can recruit as well or better than Auburn AND Dabo gets the fudge out of the way AND they make adjustments as needed.

Nevermind the "Clemsoning" or having his starting QB put out of the game against what is perceived to be a lowly Syracuse at the Carrier Dome.

We aren't Auburning, we are Malzahning every season this hardheaded, meglomaniac has control of the team. He wastes talent. We see a flash by a playmaker and we seldom see them again.
Instead he bares down on a running back and makes our offensive line less effective as the game goes on.
We are better than this OR we could be so much more take your pick.

But, like Pavlov's dog he never fails.
Jesus Christ somebody make it stop!

Here's what I see and why he has to go. 

Since 2010, and despite the fudgeing we get from the state media, nationally we get the benefit of the doubt year after year. 

At some point in every season since that damned kicking mule has been head coach, Auburn has been ranked in the Top Ten.  We've been as high as second.  We get a relatively advantageous ranking at the beginning of every season based almost entirely on "hopes and expectation."  As in "Jeremy Kiehl Jason Johnson Frazier Stidham is Heisman quality" and "We won't lose a step with Barrett Clint Trotter Moseley" 

Granted, we almost always shoot all over the bed when ranked in the Top Ten under Gus.  But the pollsters are willing to put us there. 

He's a fudgetard because he cannot keep us there.  We haven't finished in the Top 25 since we snuck in at 23rd in 2014 -- a season where we were on the verge of making the playoffs. 

fudge Gus.

What the hell happened with Gus?  Is it the pressure of being a head coach at the highest level of college football?  Has that made him delusional?  Scared? What is it?  Because what this quarterback is seeing as I sit in my armchair, is a football coach that's completely lost his way. 

I thought going into this season that he had finally hit on the one thing that may save his job and put Auburn back on the map, his proclamation that he was going to stay out of the way and let the OC he hired take the reins.  We all knew AU had a truck load of talent and all they really needed was direction.  Any direction. And CCL had already shown he could light up the scoreboard.  No telling what he could do with elite level talent.  But I said before the season even started that I just didn't believe Gus could keep his word.  And he didn't!

So now, instead of 7-0, which we should be, and ranked in the top 5, which we would deserve to be, we have 2 shoottastic losses that should never have happened and we're an afterthought to the 2017 season discussion.  All because our head coach has lost his frucking mind and can't simply leave it the hell alone.

Well three head coaches should be vacating their jobs in the SEC West barring their enormous buyouts and at least one from the East. And of all I still think Auburn is a best job.

I don't have any delusions of being able to match Alabama however the goal is to split with them.
Need to beat LSU and UGA more than they beat us. But oh no, we have to raise Orgeron up to Smart level. 
Stomp everyone else's asses.                                                                                :rolleyes:
That's places 1-3, not 4th, 5th or worse.

There are down, rebuilding or reloading years. It's expected and understood.

Chip Lindsey has been an Offensive Coordinator for 3 years...he was Malzahn analyst in 2013.  Gus was never putting the playbook down (Lashlee knew that, that's why he left).  Lindsey was a patsy from the beginning.

We will never know how good of a play caller Lashlee might have been. He was no QB coach.
Lindsay might be better but how could we know? And Stidham is a very good QB that might not be around as long as we once thought even though Malzahn said (Saturday Down South) that he probably had more freedom than any college QB he's ever had...if you want to believe that or the report from the Spring that Auburn QBs could work with outside QB coaches. I just see a dumbing down of QBs to suit Malzahn's fragile ego. Not going to change.

That's what's so frustrating and why he's done as a coach.  Okay, wishful thinking on my part.  I saw a dot  I am a gay twerker that has no balls!!!!  I also have no idea how to use the quote function to post stories, so I annoy the piss out of others.  I like male genatalia in and around my mouth. piece yesterday quoting Gus as saying "No, I'm not frustrated with my coaches."  Let's see if we can translate and simplify that statement with 3 words.

Does.  Not.  Get.

He's lost it and absolutely can't see it.

What the hell happened with Gus?  Is it the pressure of being a head coach at the highest level of college football?  Has that made him delusional?  Scared? What is it?  Because what this quarterback is seeing as I sit in my armchair, is a football coach that's completely lost his way. 

He's never been somewhere long enough to fudge up.  He usually gets in there, has a fast turnaround, and then leaves after a year or two.  His stint as AU OC was, prior to his 5 years as Auburn's coach, the longest tenured college job he has had.

Chad called him out for not liking interference from Nutt and Chizik. He became them.
Also read that he and Graham didn't necessarily part ways on good terms.
He pouted like a bitch around Chizik.

I like it that Scarbinsky won't let it go.
He legitimately wants Auburn to STAND UP!

Haven't read anything else past this, but this isn't true.  He doesn't care about Auburn.  He cares about clicks and revenue.  Right now, nothing in this state is more hot than bashing Malzhan.  Alabama fans want to read about his woes and Auburn fans want to read about how shootty a coach he is.  It's a win win for Scab.  Don't give him more credit than he deserves.

Saw an article the other day where Stidham himself said he is not allowed to audible out of a play.  That's not a lot of freedom, and is also pretty stupid.  But sounds like Malzahn.  I still believe that Auburn could be an exceptional team this year if it weren't for Malzahn.

I'll have to disagree here.  I've long since thought Scarb played it right down the middle.  Granted, he tends to over-dramatize trivial issues when there's not much to write about.  Case in point for AU fans, his diatribe on Chizik's War DAMN Eagle being classless after the MNC.  However, I think he's been pretty even keeled on AU/Bama topics. 

The problem, if that's what you want to call it, is that there really hasn't been much to harp on where Bama has been concerned.  Hard to find something sensational to print when the biggest negative has been an 8 point win vs. Texas A&M.  What are you going to write about?  This piece is spot on in my opinion.  Knowledgeable AU fans know this team is loaded with talent.  They've also seen enough to know when Malzahn's footprint is all over an inexplicable loss that never should have happened.  We've gone from what should be a 7-0, top 5 team to, "Thanks for playing."  All because of Gus Malzahn.

Bama fans don't really care for him. He doesn't fawn over them like a majority of the others. Wants a rivalry, meaning one side not always the doormat to the other. You are correct since the advent of the net... something like '98. Yes he gets paid by clicks. But he hasn't changed much over the years, not as I can tell.
