Gus wants you to know that while Auburn’s season may have sucked, his $32 million buyout contract still rocks.
Filed under Auburn's Cast of Thousands
According to my CoachSpeak Translator app, Gus just said, “Of course I’m happy. If I don’t win nine, I can always be an analyst for Nick.”
That might be a bridge too far for Little Nicky.
Wouldn’t it be hilarious if that turned to be so. He’d hire various and sundry obnoxious loudmouths, alcoholics, abusers, and slogan-smiths, but an Aubie is off limits. Lol.

Nah, everybody has this wrong with Saban. This is all about the conquest and subjugation of theses coaches. They’ve been neutered and collected as trophies. Gus would be his biggest trophy to date.
*these coaches. Geez.
That’s kind of what i was thinking, Abiding Dawg. He can’t actually tack their nut-sacks to his bulletin board, so he gelds them and lets them wander around on his sideline for funsies.
This and bringing him in for the minimum ensures Auburn eats the remainder of Gus’ contract while they pay for Gus’ replacement and staff.
It’s a good thing that Tammy(rest her soul) did not live to see this.
Hell I’d be happy anywhere knowing I was owed 32 million
Gus and Aubrun are truly made for each other – a perfect match. Better than any soap opera.
We love him being there also
The Auburn crowd money boys must have been insane.
Apparently Gus, the feeling is not so mutual.
He needs to go full Costanza in Toomer’s Corner.
Unrest and Auburn go together like a horse and carriage. I love it!
This gave me a good laugh. It also made me think about the current situation at Auburn between Gus and the school. I would guess he is doing everything in his power to live up to the letter of his contract. Any slight misstatement and he could go the way of the Shark Riding McElwain.
I still don’t understand why McElwain agreed to give up so much money. Sexton really screwed him. Maybe McElwain should look into a negotiation course at Central Michigan.
Interesting that in the second paragraph it’s “… my contract…”, but it’s “… our job…” What a total douchenozzle.
Just a reminder, don’t bet on anything Josh Moon writes.
He also had Bruce Pearl Fired last fall.
Back to your schadenfreude.
