It seems that not just Arkansas fans want Gus Malzahn to come “home” but also some in the media would like to see Malzahn trade in his Auburn visor for an Arkansas one.

Wally Hall, the sports editor for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette wrote a column where he more or less begged Malzahn, who coached high school football in the state and spent the 2006 season as Arkansas’ offensive coordinator, to leave Auburn and come to Arkansas.

“Please come home and coach the fighting Arkansas Razorbacks. Please. Pretty please. With millions of dollars on top,” Hall wrote.

Hall goes on to say that Malzahn isn’t properly appreciated at Auburn and while he might have a loaded team next year, he adds that Auburn fans will likely quickly turn on him, like they did this season, should they lose.

Hall also said that many Arkansas fans would be rooting for Malzahn to lose on Saturday, because in theory that would make it easier for him to leave Auburn.

Malzahn has the Tigers ranked No. 2 in the country and taking on the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs. The winner of the game will almost certainly clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff. Arkansas let go of Bret Bielema this past Friday, just moments after a season-ending defeat to Missouri.
