Easy peasy, on the Plains

Bo Nix, on dealing with Jordan Davis:

“You can’t really prepare for it, because obviously there aren’t many 6-6, 350-pound guys walking around that you can just avoid all the time,” Nix said. “I’ve kind of been there and played those kind of guys, been around and never necessarily had a huge issue with it. Just play my own game, and if they’re in my way, just kind of run around them.

“He’s going to make his plays, and that’s why he’s a good player; he’s going to be a great draft pick for somebody in the future, and obviously there’s no denying that. So we just have to limit the times he is making plays.”

Oh.

    Brilliantly simple, and simply brilliant, in concept. Entire nous, Barners, perhaps a bit more difficult in practice. Buckle up, Bo. Apres Jordan, le deluge.

    Jordan Davis is going to eat NIx alive. By the end of the 3rd quarter, on or about the Auburn 15, there will be some bones, scraps of jersey, a helmet shell and some beads. The faint smell of eye-black will be wafting thru the October evening…

    I love it when opposing players run their mouths the week they play us. “I’ll just run around him.” Please. Give our D even more motivation to destroy your “offense.”

  7. Ladies and gentlemen, today I brought my spiritual advisor the honorable Bishop Bullwinkle to weigh in. “Bishop Bullwinkle, will Bo Nix be prepared to “deal” with Mr. Jordan Davis?”

    Bishop… “Hell to the NAW, to the NAW NAW NAW!”

    I didn’t think so…thank you, sir.

    He’s hard to get on the ground, but completing passes at less than four yards a clip while scrambling for your life is not exactly a recipe for success.

      He will. As KGB Teddy said before that last poker game at the end of Rounders, “Don’t you worry, son. It will all be over soon.” I’m beginning to think this little turd actually believes “fun ball” is going to get him through this. I’ve said it a couple of times already but I think there’s a good chance Bo Nix gets hurt Saturday. I’m not wishing it on him but I believe it probably happens. His coaches had better y’all to him about the middle school stuff or he may get hurt bad.

    Georgia’s D-linemen are large enough that running around one of them would take a little bit if they were standing still. Two of them in a Thach Weave? Get the band-aids and Neosporin ready…

      That’s right, Uncle Got. ‘Ceptin’ the Dawgs D don’t need those slow ass Wildcat tactics. They’re more akin to Hellcats and Corsairs. Bounce n blast and take advantage of Nix’s thin skin and neutralize his maneuverability.

            Didn’t the Yorktown sink after Midway? Albeit after surviving not one but two successful Japanese attacks and being towed back to port. Maybe I’m getting my WW2 carriers mixed up.

              There is a Yorktown Aircraft carrier in Charleston, SC but I don’t know if it’s another one that you think we may have lost.

              It is a fabulous vessel and a great air museum inside. I actually spent the night in the racks with a Boy Scout troop, kind of creepy at night.

              • That is an amazing museum in Charleston…the greatest generation did so much for this country and never complained…I marvel at all the things my grandfather and his brothers did, how they all seemingly could build and repair anything with their hands. People now talk about how they have a “guy” for contracting, landscaping, plumbing, etc…those tough old hickory sons a bitches literally could do it all. Men like that are my heroes, and they cast a long shadow…

      Gentlemen, I propose a new drinking game: Anytime the opposing QB gets caught looking the other way it’s considered a Thatch Weave and we must drink.

      Right – the blind reverse spin into the awaiting arms of Adam Anderson? Or Carter? Nix made some of the most athletic plays I’ve ever seen in our game last year – to get an incomplete or avoid a sack. The part that gives me a tiny amount of concern is that we’ve seen Auburn succeed before with a “throw it up and pray” scheme. Will be a tough way to make a living this Saturday, though.

    I predict a murderously efficient defensive effort to drive their morale into the ground much like the B-52 carpet bombing did during Desert Storm.

    See, that’s what an Auburn education does to you: makes you dumb as an underpants gnome.

    No, Bo, you run FROM Jordan Davis, not AROUND him. Problem is, you’re running FROM Nakobe and Tindall and Adam Anderson and Wyatt and Nolan Smith and Jalen Carter and Trayvon, too, and they’re not all coming toward you from the same direction. So that’s, let me see, one reasonably strong, athletic guy vs. eight much stronger and vastly more athletic guys. But yeah, you’ll be fine.

        If AU is near the current tech at CFB analytics, they already have that information. Teams can monitor G’s, MPH, steps, vital signs in real time during games and practices. Kind of freaky. Makes the Fitbit and IPhone obsolete at that high level. Would be nice to know the full extent of the tech they deploy. It’s as much as a top performer metric is as a safety system for concussion protocol. I’ve read things about it, don’t slam me if I misunderstand any of it though, lol.

    Y’know, I could see some Jordan-Hare magic happening. Maybe the Dawgs get off to a slow start and trail early, letting the Barner crowd get crazy loud. Then maybe Stetson reverts to the mean, starts telegraphing passes and throwing into tight coverage. He might even get a pass batted down right into an Auburn LB’s hands for a pick-six. Could get weird.

    But when I envision the game I mostly see Bo Nix running for his life over and over and over again. Seems more likely than all the ifs that could make the game competitive.
