Gus Malzahn is a good coach. He will do well at Tulsa. They will rack up some passing yards and compete in Conference USA.
But weren't they already doing that before Gus's hire with Kragthorpe and Co.? Tulsa got off to a good start last night, defeating perennial power Louisiana-Monroe 35-17. They were down at the half, and pulled away late after it was obvious ULM was completely gassed. Tulsa has better talent, which stands to reason. Conference USA should attract better talent than the Sun Belt. This was also not some coaching performance for the ages, defying all odds, pollsters, and oddsmakers. Tulsa was favored, on the road, by 3, in what was an extremely enticing line. But from the response on the internets (specifically Hogville) Bill Belichick, Bear Bryant, Knute Rockne, Vince Lombardi, and the Heavenly Host himself don't know squat about football compared to Gus.
I think he's a good coach, but the man love has really gone over the top.
