Only in coaching can you be paid a $13M or $21M buyout for underperforming and being fired. Gus can take the year off, or not as he decides, and come back as a highly paid head coach as soon as he chooses. uofsc would have been far better off with Mahlzahn than Beamer. It shows how foolhardy uofsc was to hire before the annual firings began.

Not only in football. There have been many underperforming CEOs receive much more in their golden parachutes.

usuc is the epitome of stupidity. Although they would have been wise to have chosen Gus M., he was too good for them. Although there are many coaches who deserve a fate that includes usuc, I can't think of any coach who could help them dig out from under their deserved lack of success who has committed transgressions deserving of a punishment that includes serving time in cola at usuc. That offense skips purgatory and goes straight to the deepest depths of "inferno".

Auburn's recruiting is in the toilet.

Their incoming 2021 class is ranked 42 by 24 7.

Not going to fly on the plains. They don't want to become another FSU.

Sumlin and Muschamp are available. They can take you all the way to the bottom.....
Auburn will be toast for years now! Reminds me of our Hatfield situation. Took us 15 to recover!
Gus was not leading them to the promised land, but who will?

WOW.. Hatfield - some remembers him

downer years of Clemson.
I remember QB Patrick Sapp, 6-6, gun for an arm, was forced to play wishbone.

I am tempted to say that Hatfield was the worst coach in our history, but that would forget Hootie. It wouldn't be right. Hootie certainly has to be in the hunt for that honor.

Hatfield wasn't a bad coach.

In 4 years he went 32-13-1, but led us to our 1st losing season in 16 years when we went 5-6 in '92. Much like Charlie Strong at Texas, Ken Hatfield walked into a situation in which the ground had been poisoned before he ever coached a game for us. He inherited one of the most talented rosters we ever had pre-Dabo; went 10-2 in '90 & 9-2-1 with an ACC title in '91. But Hatfield wasn't Danny Ford, & nothing he could do was good enough to please everyone. Recruiting suffered, because Hatfield couldn't just pick up where Danny left off in recruiting NC-SC-GA, but the lingering bitterness & division within the fan base over Ford's firing was no doubt a factor.
You are right - it took us about 15 years to recover from this debacle. Yes, the decline in talent level happened on Hatfield's watch, but firing a coach who just finished 8-3 is never a good look & our image took a beating because of it. We ended up having to settle for an unproven Tommy West - a good person & not too bad of a head coach - but in his 5 years he couldn't get the program out of its funk. But we can at least be thankful that we never experienced a total collapse-&-rebuild like USC did.
So, while I'd concede that we had to part ways with Hatfield, to this day I'm not proud of the way we treated him at CU.

They probably think they can get lots of coaches who are better. There are many stupid thoughts being pondered down there. It's what they do in the secheat. I think it's in their DNA. Few of their thoughts are correct, mind you, but oh well. It all reminds me of the old song, "Another One Bites The Dust". Next coach up, I guess. I predict, a new coach with instant success, then NCAA violations, probation, then another coach, and then restart the process. Did I mention DNA? They can't help it. Some of you young whippersnappers remind everybody when it happens again. You heard it first right here, pilgrims, from Dugatiger.

Hugh Freeze to auburn Art Briles to liberty to replace freeze because the ad at liberty was the ad at Baylor where Briles was the Head coach. Watch out this is going to happen I'm telling you

That would make sense. Allbarn would hire him before any other P5 school would consider

I'm going to say

Luke Fickell.

Freeze has WAY too much baggage.

Yeah, Auburn won't hesitate to hire a coach with some baggage . . .

as long as he's a good recruiter & a proven winner. Like Bruce Pearl. Or Hugh Freeze.

Auburn is much like SCar

Severe inferiority complex with an in state rival that owns them. There is only one Dabo and only one Saban; doesn’t matter who is at the helm of these programs. Unless they can coax Urban to coach again I don’t see much changing by getting rid of Gus. However, Auburn recruiting is in the toilet so maybe it was time for a change.

They fired the man on a Sunday after a win during a Covid infested season.

Maybe like Nebraska ?? or Georgia ?? or others ???


Posted: Dec 13, 2020, 4:18 PM
 

Fire the coach that can only win you 9 or 10,may be 11, ball games a year --

Richt @ Georgia was 145 -51 -- 74% win percentage was 6th among P5 coaches

Pelini@ Nebraskaa was 67-27 -- 72% win persentage

so just goes to show ya' -- get a good """buy-out""" clause in your contract and you can retire early in life with _ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$MILLIONS$$$$$$$$$$$$$ _______________________ if you can't win 99@ of your games****

GO TIGERS !!!!!!!!!!!!

Shane Train or Gus Bus?

UofSuc would fit better with the latter.

Well he did lose to UofSC...

The Rece Davis "be careful what you wish for" tweet has been Chris Fowler energy after Tommy Bowden's firing.

Clemson believed we deserved better than "just ok", and fortunately our administration rolled the dice and landed on Dabo. Auburn also believes they should be better than 7 or 8 wins a year, so why does I'm not sure why Rece should be snarky about them trying to improve themselves. They gave the man 8 years. Arky and FSU gave their last coaches less than 2 years.

Personally, I never thought that dabo was a risk hire. Dabo didn't just get very intelligent when he was hired as Clemson HC!!! Plus, Dabo had been tutored by some pretty good head coaches that probably wasn't as smart as Dabo.

Wonder how much of that payout goes for taxes?!

2021 orange level membermilitary_donation.jpg link

Not that much. As a percentage of income . . .


Posted: Dec 14, 2020, 1:00 AM
 

he probably pays less in taxes than any of us do, what with the lowered rates for high earners after the 2017 tax cut, in addition to all the tax shelters, tax credits & write-offs. Besides, I'm sure Gus has a good tax accountant & financial advisor as well.

I bet that Gus don't give a crap with 21 coming in 30 days. He really don't have ever have to deal with that head ache ever again!!!!
