The ugly bus was interviewed by one of their cult following beat writers one day last week. Interesting comment he made. He said that from what he has seen thus far, the 2020 auburn team was the most complete team he has had at auburn in all three phases of the game. How would he know? I thought that spring practices were cancelled.
Every single year, the media hypes up that cult. Haven't they seen this movie before? Every preseason it's "auburn is loaded. They hardly lost anybody from last year. The schedule sets up nicely for them to be undefeated headed into the Iron Bowl. Their QB will be a Heisman candidate. They just hired the best offensive mind in the business. Watch out! This year will be magical!!" Then they lose a game and that's the cult leader's cue. "We are young. The future is bright". One year, the bus will declare he is taking over all the play calling. Then the next year, he is turning it over to the latest offensive guru he hired. They will make some garbage bowl. Birmingham, Belk, Music City, Independence, etc. They will rack up some points against some pushover and declare that Gus has finally "figured it out" and "next year should be the year". Rinse and repeat.
