Serving fake juice on the Gus Bus

Man, this is really straining to come up with an emotional edge.

Auburn offensive coordinator Chad Morris was fired after one-plus season at Arkansas last November after posting a 4-18 record during his tenure. Staying in the SEC West, Morris will get to see his former program this weekend when the Razorbacks travel to Auburn…

“I would say it’s definitely personal for (Morris),” center Nick Brahms said, via the Princeton Daily Clarion. “Nobody takes him for granted, because he’s a great person and a great man and a great coach. This is his former team that he coached for, so we’re going to play hard for him.”

You don’t manage to win 20% of the games you coach, get canned for the results (receiving a $10 million buyout in the process) and somehow you’re the aggrieved party?

I’m just spitballing here, but maybe Morris would do better taking the whipping Georgia’s defense administered last week personally.

      As the “gus bus” buyout starts to decrease, I envision him doing everything he can to get dismissed, included in that everything is as many losses as humanly possible, with out to much of that light shining on his behind….#AUBURN SUCKS!

      Kirby flat out saying he knew what was coming from Gus was ballsy. I love it. He will be in their head when calling plays for a while now.

    So maybe Gus was trying to motivate his own guys when he said Arkansas was playing better because they’re better coached now.

    The guy coasts for a year, in over his head, ends up with over $10mil in the bank, and “its personal”? I cant believe the AU players would feel that way, dont they understand how much money is thrown at these coaches? Dont they think for a minute and decide “I’m going to get me one of these coaching jobs and ride that train”?

    Brahms is the one who likes airplanes, isn’t he? Seems like a decent kid. But his intellect kinda reminds me of a certain pitcher who wanted a quadraphonic blaupunkt.

    Chad is already serving his purpose. He can bare the blame for Bo Nix and the offense not improving. Kevin Steele has an excuse with a young defense. Next year Gus tales back the OC job the pundits lower expectations. Cup cakes come back on the schedule Gus does enough to sell 2022 is our year. By then he has enough in the bank not to care. Gus is well aware buy outs on paper don’t always translate into real cash. Best to slow roll this deal until a smaller check is easier to cash. He only has that job now because he has done what most others can’t find a way to beat Bama a couple of times.

    That “Win one for the Gipper” mentality don’t work anyway. If you don’t want it bad enough for yourself, it’s even harder to motivate yourself for someone else. You watched Rocky III right? Plus, emotion and hype only goes so far. At some point physical ability becomes an issue.
