Social media sounds off on Gus Malzahn following poor offensive performance, loss to Miss State
It’s a rough night for Auburn football fans.
For the second game in a row, AU’s offense struggled mightily. On Saturday, Mississippi State upset No. 8 Auburn winning 23-9.
Not surprisingly, a quick search of “Gus Malzahn” on Twitter showed how many have soured on his reputation as an offensive guru, his $7 million salary and lengthy extension.
Myth: Gus Malzahn is an offensive genius. Fact: he is isn’t. https://t.co/MLYdmoHrpI

Gus Malzahn is the biggest joke in CFB… not attempting a FG there is moronic

“We’re gonna get better, I can promise you that.” – Gus Malzahn after the game, probably.

I will never defend Gus Malzahn. I don’t care what kind of fan that makes me. This man should have never been given a new contract. He’s one of the worst in-game coaches out there. I don’t know how anyone can claim to be an Auburn fan and defend this man. Gus “8-5” Malzahn.

Is it crazy to think Gus Malzahn’s seat is getting hot? Stidham hasn’t reached his full potential, but he’s still far too talented to be leading an offense that looks like this.. that hot streak they went on last Oct/Nov already feels like forever ago

I can hear Gus Malzahn’s post game presser already. “Make no doubt about it our offense has to start playing better, and that starts me”

Gus Malzahn putting offensive coach on his résumé is a bigger lie than anything George O’Leary put on his résumé

Good night. Good night, #Auburn. Love you, players. Refs DID suck. Lots of woulda coulda shoulda tweets too, but we lost because …AGAIN… Gus Malzahn can NOT properly prepare a team, let alone let coordinators be coordinators. I’m off the #GusBus Done defending.

#Auburn still has to play Texas A&M, Alabama, and Georgia. If Auburn goes 8-4/7-5, Gus Malzahn may find himself on a pretty hot seat.
