Auburn’s Gus Malzahn Shows Masks Are Purely Cosmetic

Wearing a mask on the sideline is said to be for player health when our eyes tell us they’re strictly for cosmetics. Check out this mask from Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn from a few weeks back. Give us a break.

Looks like someone called Christian Grey from 50 Shades to borrow a mask for the game. How can anyone argue this mask is doing anything to protect not only him, but his players. No real sports fan cared, and that’s understandable, because the players’ health hasn’t been at risk. The only reason coaches are walking around with underwear over the faces is for positive PR.

The only risk to a shoddy mask is getting a player sick that will now miss time in a game you need him. These athletes aren’t at any more risk on the field than an everyday person would be. That includes if every coach decided the big caveat was they’re wearing G-strings for masks on College Football Saturdays.

Coach Malzahn isn’t the only one making this mask mandate laughable, so let’s appreciate that they aren’t taking it seriously. It’s likely that by next year we’ll ditch the window dressing and quit pretending to be terrified of getting super athletes sick.

  1. Well i guess this idiot fauchi just came out and said it might be time to mandate masks apparently he doesn’t believe in our civil rights the government cannot mandate you to wear anything we are a free people and we wear what we want. This clown has been a disaster from the get go wear mask don’t wear mask this virus is no big deal oh the virus is so very serious he has flipped flopped so many times his credibility is tanked. Now if a business requests you to wear one i honor that or i don’t shop there its a choice we have but government gtfo.
