A prediction….

By on December 5th, 2012 in Member Post 2 Comments »

Ok, you thought I was going to bad mouth Malzahn…lol… well your wrong. But I do have some interesting news to give you that changes my perception on Malzahn I will post in a few minutes….

Now to my prediction.  You may refer to it as a wild ass guess but at a minimum I am sticking with intuition….

I watched the video and while breezing through radio stations trying to hear a soundbyte or two of what the outside opinion was about AU’s hire…

The video I am speaking of was of Pat Sullivan and his passioned speach about the hiring of Gus Malzahn. Has anyone else seen this?

The reason I mention the radio commentary I heard what I think was a bammer and his interpretation of that speech.  I have to say after watching the video and then listening to his comments (on Paul Finebaum) I agree with him.  It makes sense.

I think others have reported here that Jay Jacobs is getting ready to retire in January. I believe this to be true. 

My ‘prediction’ is that our next Athletic Director for Auburn University will be Pat Sullivan.

And I can deal with that…

    I have been telling anyone that would listen for at least 10 years, that Sully would make an outstanding AD for Auburn. My uncle crossed paths with Sullivan in the business world many times and I was lucky to enough to be tagging along. My perception was that Pat Sullivan was/is no nonsense, tough as nails competitor in every sense of the word. My uncle, a REC bammer, liked him and respected him but hated to deal with him because he rarely got the precise arrangement he wanted.
