Gus Malzahn trolls Alabama over kickoff time protest
The rivalry between Alabama and Auburn has already started for the 2019 season.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has definitely been paying attention to the news, because he eagerly took a shot at the Crimson Tide during his Tuesday press conference. Auburn’s upcoming game against Kent State kicks off at 7 p.m. ET, in stark contrast to the noon kickoffs that Alabama complained about publicly.
Malzahn took a little dig, saying he wishes they were starting at noon.
Auburn HC Gus Malzahn on the Kent State game: "Personally, I wish it was at noon, so we'd have more time to prepare for our next opponent."

Yes, the pettiness has started already. Alabama made a big stink about their noon kickoffs, which failed to elicit a lot of sympathy from their fellow schools. They’re certainly not going to get any from Malzahn or the Tigers, who are just going to tease them about their complaint instead.
