The Gus Bus is headed to the junkyard.

Whoa, Nellie.

And to think Bo Nix was just about to turn the corner.


UPDATE:   Double whammy.

    All I can say is wow, and also, don’t the Barners realize they’re not getting that big fat ESPN/ABC/Disney check for another three years???

    A $21.45M buyout is what they call REAL MONEY. It’s insane to fire him after this season. Just completely, utterly insane.

    And that makes it completely, utterly Auburn.

    Lovie got the axe too.


    • Greg

      He really struggled in college, with the exception of 2 or 3 years….he did in pro also.

      Seemed like a good fellow though, there were a lot of people that liked him.

    On the one hand I will miss the near-guaranteed wins against a coach who also happens to beat Nick Saban more than anyone (including Kirby). On the other hand, I thoroughly enjoy watching turmoil at our rival programs. We’ve gotten a bumper crop of schadenfreude this weekend (not to mention the issues at UT and USCe) so let’s enjoy it while it’s fresh!

    Well, I guess we’re going to see if Sankey still has Freeze blacklisted.

    Well this news sux. Given the history of the series it will be hard to find someone we can kick around like Gus. He will be missed by UGA fans.

  20. So auburn has to have someone a little sleazy, and also expensive. It also has to be a questionable decision. Need to throw those parameters in the cross reference and see what we get. Kiffen taken. Corch? Oh that’d be hilarious. Think boom is done for good now. But he maybe their DC.


  21. Russ

    Well, we know Liberty has no scruples. Of course they’ll hire Art Briles.

      Hugh Freeze of Kniffin. Auburn always has to have some sleaze around.

      Monken does not have the sleaze factor that is required to be the HC of the barners. Freeze and Briles would be perfect fits. I’m sure they already inquired about Petrino’s availability. Another “fits like a glove” coaching match for them.


  26. armydawg

    Well, with Gus gone and a new AD in our house maybe we can get the scheduling back the way it should be.


  27. californiadawg

    Gus is a sleaze but he was better at beating Bama than most other coaches in the SEC, even when he had inferior teams. I mean damn he beat Saban just last season. This seems shortsighted and dumb, even for Barners.


    • junkyardawg41

      Outside of LSU’s season last year, are there are any current coaches in the SEC that have beaten Saban while in the SEC?


      • Corch Irvin Meyers, New USC Corch (2021)

        Nope. Unless Auburn is allowed to hire Freeze, the only coach in the SEC with a win against Saban right now is Coach O.

        Gus owned HALF of the six losses Saban suffered in the SEC while at Bama.

        Gus: 3
        Freeze: 2
        Richt: 1 (Saban’s first year at Bama)
        O: 1

  31. Let’s hope they hire someone who matches his success against us, and Bama. I’d take that any day of the week.
