Does Gus Malzahn’s massive buyout at Auburn make him untouchable?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/sec/2019/10/22/auburn-football-how-gus-malzahn-massive-buyout-changed-equation/3853045002/

On an unseasonably warm evening in October 2017, Gus Malzahn arrived at his postgame news conference wearing a striped Auburn polo and traces of a scowl.

The Tigers had just blown a 20-point lead on the road against LSU. They were 10-10 in their past 20 games in the Southeastern Conference. They hadn't beaten Alabama or Georgia in nearly four years. And their past three seasons had ended with records of 8-5, 7-6 and 8-5.

"It's not the end of the world," Malzahn told reporters.

In Auburn country, however, there was a growing sense it might soon be the end of Malzahn's time on the Southern plains.

Then, in a span of just seven weeks, everything changed. Auburn clobbered then-No. 2 Georgia and dominated then-No. 1 Alabama. Malzahn went from coaching on the hot seat to signing a seven-year, $49 million contract extension — complete with a massive buyout clause that won't dip below eight figures until 2023.

Nope, as long as they have boosters willing to pay , it doesn't matter

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support.

The pandemic has financial consequences, especially for Black-owned businesses. Ad revenue is shrinking so we are asking you directly for your financial support. You can use the Cash App and contribute to $onnidan or process your donation through Square
