I am actively rooting for a Rodriguez return in 2011. However, being a realistic fella, I understand that this mightn't happen (/"duh").
Aside from the inevitable media-driven-Harbaugh!-ness of the weeks immediately post-Rodriguez, how does the Mgocommunity feel about Malzahn? Watching Auburn play and watching multiple camera shots of the sideline, one gets the inclination that Malzahn is running that show. To be sure, he will be a hot commodity either this season or next, and I imagine he'll sooner stick with Newton than abandon Auburn for anything other than a head coaching gig.
Odds are he'd do as well at keeping Denard in Maize and Blue as anyone (other than Rodriguez); so, how do you feel about Brandon--hypothetically--giving him a good, long look?
