Gus Malzahn does a great job at Little Rock Touchdown Club (Part 1)

GUS MALZAHN: Jonesboro here I come.

Gov. Beebe, Shane Broadway, Steve Sullivan, Jeff Hankins and all the notable ASU grads were in the audience today at the Little Rock Touchdown Club.

This was the second time I got to see Gus Malzahn speak at the Little Rock Touchdown Club. Two years ago he was skyped in since tornadoes made it impossible to catch a flight from Atlanta to Little Rock. (Gus went on to lead Auburn to an undefeated national championship later that year.) I remember that meeting because he was asked directly about the 10-1 Razorbacks in 2006 and the fact that the last three games of that year seemed to have coach Nutt calling the plays and Gus wisely avoided that question by saying, “No comment.”

This time around he alluded to that possibly when he said when things went south at Arkansas he took a job at Tulsa where he could call the plays. He noted that he was very blessed everywhere he went to have great talented players to coach.

Probably the most interesting answer he gave was concerning Arkansas State’s interest in playing the Razorbacks every year. Gus said that this is not 1970 anymore and this a different time. He noted that everyone else throughout the country plays instate teams!!!!
