The SEC is about to be BURNED, awe burned that is. With the arrival of the offensive guru to the War Eagle gridiron, comes, who could be the best offensive play-calling mind in all of college football, Gus Malzahn. This is going to be like going to Six Flags for War Eagle Fans, a new ride with something turning, twisting and accelerating on every play. I have been watching this coach since his upstart high school coaching days at Shiloh Christian in Springdale, Arkansas, he brought them nothing but championships. Moving up the ladder to the "Big School" Springdale High, churning out State Championships there as well. The Razorbacks at Arkansas needing offensive help bring him on board and attempt to use his abilities and talents and not give him credit. His creative offence puts Darren McFadden in the Heisman running and his "Wild Cat" formation is being run all over the country. Turns out Arkansas' Coach Houston was a "Nutt", so Malzahn "Bolts" to Tulsa. Two years at Tulsa and the Hurricanes become the most wide open, high scoring innovative offensive football team in college football. Twenty one, count them, 21 wins during his two years as coordinator. Now Auburn has just won the coaching lottery but for how long, a head job is next and probably sooner than later. The Guru's play calling is like a chess match, he makes a move already knowing how opponents are going to adjust to stop it and like a coiled rattler when that adjustment is made, Wham! he strikes the big one. Yes, big plays are a part of his scheme, better get that Auburn defense ready they will be on the field in just a few snaps per possession. Ah yes, the SEC is about to be torched, scorched and burned by Gus Malzahn's Awe burn.
