A little chat with Gus Malzahn
Hey everyone. As the Hard-Core HOTTIES® know, I have been trackin' and chasin' Gus Malzahn for a few days. I finally caught that rascal last night.
I turned most of our chat into a Q-and-A piece that ran in Thursday's editions of the Montgomery Advertiser.
Though I implore you to follow the link above, here is a snippet for the link-impared:
Q: Do you ever add plays or ideas from outside sources or do you formulate new elements from scratch?
A: If there's something out there that fits our talent and could make us better, we're always going to look at it. We want to get better, but it's more about evaluating the defenses, the SEC defenses. I evaluate the defensive coordinators. I try to get in their minds and understand how they think.
The main opponents, the teams where you really want to win, are the ones I watch all year. I search for ways to exploit them all the time. You need to know everything about these coordinators. I want to know how they think so I can predict what they'll do in a certain situation.
