I agree that the Arkansas game was one of the best performances of Malzhan’s tenure here, but we need to recognize that Arkansas had one of the worst run defense in the SEC giving up over 200 yards per game. The streak that Auburn went on to be in the top 10 was not against high quality teams. Outside of LSU, which Auburn did not score a touchdown, they played middle of the road teams or cupcake teams. Against UGA, Bama, and Oklahoma the offense only put up about 12 points a game. I would love to pin it on them being banged up, but this has become a trend in the Malzhan era. In 2015, against quality opponents Auburn could not put it in the end zone. I am not calling for Malzhan’s firing as of now, but if something does not change by the Iron Bowl then he needs to go.
