Time for a switch? Bo Nix's rough first half has fans tweeting about Joey Gatewood
True freshman Bo Nix’s first outing as the Auburn starting quarterback is not going the way Tigers fans hoped.
In the first half, Nix was 6-of-18 passing for 91 yards with two interceptions and no touchdowns. It’s no surprise to see that many people watching (Auburn fans, SEC fans, college football fans) are wondering if head coach Gus Malzahan should make a change and go with Joey Gatewood, the redshirt freshman who lost the offseason competition to Nix.
Benching Nix could potentially hurt his confidence going forward, but many people are wondering what Gatewood might be able to do. Here’s a small sampling of what people are saying on social media:

Gatewood wasn’t better than Nix?

Time for the Joey Gatewood era to begin. Feel bad for Bo, but he's got to step aside.

I love Bo Nix as a kid but Joey Gatewood is the only QB on this roster that can cover up Gus’ issues

Anyone else think that maybe a Joey Gatewood series in the 2nd half might be a good idea?
