I don’t think it’ll be either, if it is, it’ll more likely be Gus, because as has been said Norvell is a “hot name.” I don’t think he would wait possibly until mid Jan to see what Gus is gonna do. To many schools talking to him.
Absolutely agree, and the other thing with Gus that people are overlooking, is if he did make a backroom deal with the good ole boys and then loses today, you may be able to make the argument he threw the game. What does that say about him if true?
College Gameday this morning actually argued that Bama lost so much talent from injuries this year that a two loss Clemson (losses to Syracuse and Miami) that isn’t an ACC Champ, should get in over a 1 loss Bama (loss to AUB) that isn’t the SEC Champ.

Throwing the game?..Big stretch, its a helleva game going now if you like Def, which we could use
Malzahn: Even with great talent, Malzahn struggled from 2014 through mid-2016, having a 2-10 SEC stretch. However, I think he’s become a better coach. The 2016 LSU late snap gave Malzahn more time. He learned what type of player to recruit and how to win in the SEC. He knows it takes both offense and defense to win in the SEC. Plus, I’ve always admired Malzahn’s ability to adapt his offense to his players. He’s doesn’t try to force his preferred system, when it’s not a good fit for his players.
Norvell: It might take him a few years to figure out how to win in the SEC, and recruit to his offense. Not sure his teams play great defense, or if he even emphasizes D.
So, I’d take Malzahn, if given that choice. Even though I really don’t like the man, I want what’s best for the Razorbacks.
Gus also has only been a HC in college for 6 seasons, so he of course had to have the normal learning curve. I do think he’s on the other end of that, and is as good of a coach as anyone, especially play calling.
Norvell, spectacular young coach, but he would have to have his learning curve still.
