Channel 11 had the audacity to pre-empt "The Price is Right" for this??!! I guarantee that 5 years ago Bert Bulimia said the exact same words as this guy. Meet the new boss same as the old boss. I want get fooled again.

For a coaching change that started out looking like more of something related to Tennessee with everyone upset with Steinmetz and Peoples, I applaud the UA administration in getting this process on a good track and seeing it through to a successful ending. I never understood the Malzahn thing - wanted to believe it - just couldn’t. You don’t go from Auburn to Arkansas. I think we wasted some very valuable recruiting time on Gus but Chad is an excellent choice and as fast as he goes he can probably make up the time. Great hire!!!
