Marquis Burks did not waste any time reacting to the media’s prediction of the SEC West’s order of finish.

Burks, an Auburn defensive lineman, is set for his third season with Auburn and evidently disagrees with the media’s prediction that Auburn would finish last in the SEC. Burks commented on the SEC’s Instagram post, “Predict deez nuts” and his comment got plenty of reaction and approval, including more than 100 likes.

Deez nuts jokes are a staple of Nick Saban’s humor, and several Alabama players have commented that he regularly cracks them up.

Former Alabama running back and current Las Vegas Raiders star Josh Jacobs was the first one to share just how much Saban loves telling “deez nuts” jokes during an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” back in 2019.

“Since I’m a defensive coach and I probably get on the defensive players a little bit more ferociously. It’s a little easier for me to be light-hearted with the offensive players,” Saban said about 2 years ago. “We’ve had a lot of really good players on offense that have great personalities and great work ethic and you just love them – and those are the kind of guys I usually pick out, do all the teasing stuff.”
