“While Nix picked Burrow’s brain…”

I guess Bo knows he ain’t gettin’ to heaven the Heisman ceremony on Gus Malzahn’s coaching alone.

    The posters here keep tagging on Nix. When I look at Nix I see the son of a coach who also played QB. I see a kid who started at QB at a major college as a freshman. I see a guy who threw for over 2500 yards and 16 TDs his freshman year and beat Bama. Yeah, he’s a shitty QB alright.

    • He finished ninth in the conference with a 125.03 passer rating, and was even worse against FBS competition. Let’s not elect him to the Hall of Fame just yet, Mayor.

    • Auburn got the benefit of 2 pick 6s and a missed tying chip shot field goal. That’s the reason they won. Nix was a 50% passer with 44 yards rushing in that game.

      Gus’s rabbit foot had more to do with winning that game than Bo Nix.

        Winning football games, particularly against Bama, is all luck. Nix had over 200 yards total offense in that game and didn’t turn the ball over (as I recall). Go back and watch the replay, particularly Auburn’s final scoring drive. Take a look at the completed passes particularly the final TD pass. Yeah, Nix had nothing to do with Auburn winning.

        • Mayor, my point is without the pick 6s, that game isn’t close. Bama dominated that game everywhere except the scoreboard (sort of like our fluke loss to South Carolina). Auburn got two breaks that directly produced 14 points and Nix made a play at the end.

    I loath anything Auburn (cheating bastards) but I do believe that Nix played well for a true frosh and is going to have a breakout season this year, if we have one. Kid is good and I’m afraid Auburn (cheating bastards) will be as well.

      My point exactly. I like driving in my truck as much as anybody but I don’t put my head in the sand while I’m doing it.

        P.S. While the Senator may find it funny (Ha ha) that the Auburn QB is getting instruction from Jordan Palmer and working out with Joe Burrow and Sam Darnold I as a UGA alum do not find that amusing at all.

    It’s fairly evident that this quarantine shit has gone quite far enough. If it’s this chippy in here think what it’s gonna be like when ( if ) they put the pads on.

    We have to admit this about Nix:

    He’s the best qb Gus has recruited out of HS to come to auburn.

    Not that it was a very high bar.

    I think Bo Nix has a very bright future. I wouldn’t be surprised if he beat the Dawgs during his career.
