Time for change? Gus Malzahn, Chad Morris, Bo Nix all take major heat after Auburn's loss at South Carolina
The Auburn Tigers took an early lead at South Carolina on Saturday afternoon, but then the wheels fell off.
In what has become all too common for Tiger fans this season, the offense fell apart, helped in large part by QB Bo Nix’s 3 interceptions. The Gamecocks held on late for a 30-22 victory.
Auburn could very well be 1-3 after this loss, based on the controversial ending to last week’s game against Arkansas. However, even at 2-2, things aren’t exactly going well for the Tigers.
As the loss was transpiring, frustrated fans took to Twitter to express their frustration with head coach Gus Malzahn, OC Chad Morris and Nix:
Maybe Bo Nix isn’t the best option.
…..or Chad Morris

Auburn gets to the 5 and runs 2 plays without their best player on the field on 2nd and 3rd and goal. Gus and Chad have convinced themselves that Bo is better than he is in spite of the evidence suggesting he is a below average passer

Most Auburn games have this structure, you just swap "offense" and "defense" for whichever nouns fit. It's a heist that keeps going wrong. https://t.co/CnWNIHVdE5

Chad Morris, why is that even a question.
He was overrated from the get go, but Morris slander will not be passed up on this account https://t.co/gGVKeWqZ27

This is so embarrassing. If you’re ok with this in year 8 of Gus Malzahn then you’re the problem.

This should wrap Gus Malzahn up. He’s lost this team.

If this doesn't seal Gus Malzahn's fate I don't know what will! This team is awful, the lack of coaching and development is awful, and this team may be worse than the 2012 team! It's time for a CHANGE!!!! #WarEagle

Will the Tigers make some changes soon? We’ll find out over the next few weeks as the 2020 campaign marches on. Seats are certainly starting to heat up on The Plains, though.
