Gus Malzahn Receives Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award

By on January 5th, 2014 in Football, News 4 Comments »

Here’s a great video of Auburn Coach Gus Malzahn receiving the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award. It’s good to see a normally serious Malzahn laughing in this light hearted ceremony punctuated by former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel serenading Gus with his rendition of  “Born in the SEC.”

Congrats Coach for another well deserved honor!

    Gus’ comment about coaching at this level being a year-around job are one of the things that I think sets the SEC apart from other conferences. “Off season?” What’s that?

    Oh, and Rick Neuheisel may have a fall-back doing stand-up comedy!

    Wow. I haven’t laughed this hard in a while. Interestingly Rick is on Sirius xm and the Jack Arute show. He has maintained since the bama game that what Auburn did to tie the game was illegal. He maintains that Auburn had linemen down field.

    I think its the height of hipocracy to to whine about losing, especially since the team you are whining for would have stepped over their Mother if it could have gotten them another championship. I don’t know, but maybe Rick has a man crush on Saban. The rest of the media did and still does.

      …..Clearly Rick isn’t up to speed on current rules, where a lineman can be 3 yards downfield on a forward pass. None of Auburn’s guys were more than 3 yards downfield on that play. Uzomah and Louis were on the opposite side of the field, and they both went down 5 yards, and very deliberately didn’t hit anybody, so no flag with the ball in the air.

      Call it what it was, folks. It was a good play call that fooled the Alabama secondary, and Nick Marshall made a heck of a play selling it, and hitting Coates in the numbers with a less than fundamentally sound throw.
