What was he thinking? Fans, media torch Auburn QB Bo Nix after awful final play
South Carolina just beat Auburn for the first time since 1933, holding on for a 30-22 victory.
Down the stretch, Auburn was driving, going for a touchdown and possible tying 2-point conversion, but a couple of bizarre decisions by QB Bo Nix hurt the Tigers in a big way.
The final play was especially bizarre. Facing a 4th and 5, Nix seemed content to scramble around, wasting all 9 seconds before trying in vain to run for the end zone:
BO NIX IS NOT GONNA GET THERE!
Final at Williams-Brice Stadium: 30-22

Bo Nix with ZERO situational awareness on the final play. #AUBvsSCAR

Bo Nix might be the dumbest QB in the SEC. #AUBvsUSC

Someone should tell Bo Nix he's supposed to throw the ball.

I mean, how bad is Bo Nix. Uses all 9 second left running around and then tries to run for the first down.

Bo Nix had two plays with under 30 seconds remaining to just chuck the ball into the end zone and give his guys a chance. He scrambled on both. 🤦🏾♂️

Nah seriously, what the hell was Bo Nix doing on that last play

Bo Nix has 9 seconds on the clock to score a TD. And he tries scrambling??

Jeremy Johnson – 5 star
Jarrett Stidham – NFL QB
Bo Nix – 5 star
NONE OF THESE GUYS PROGRESSED UNDER GUS. At some point you have to figure it out.

Now at 2-2, with a controversial win against Arkansas as one of the victories, frustration is mounting on The Plains. We’ll see if any changes are made moving forward.
