Bo "Oh No" Nix has poor fundamentals, awful footwork, a sloppy release, terrible pocket presence (awareness), and even worse decision making. He does not have the ability to start for any other team but AU where his Daddy's influence has forced Gus into starting him. Great QB's have the intangible ability to perform under pressure and just win. Bo melts and disappears under pressure and finds a way to lose. He is a "Chuck-ee Duck-ee" QB who will always perform below average. Maybe AU will hire Daddy Nix as next Head Coach to complete the disaster.
Don't resign, take the money and run Coach....you are truly the greatest since Barnum & Bailey....you should run for Governor.
I think the Ref's blew the call.....Today they said that Bo made same kind of Backward Pass (just like Arkansas Game) to stop the clock when he played Pee-Wee Football and the right call was made then,,,backward pass, live ball, the other team returned it for a TD...So I guess neither Bo nor the SEC Ref's understand basic passing rules regarding laterals and backward passing. Sad for Arkansas to lose,,but they had other chances to put AU away...just a bad way to decide a ball game.
I haven't seen it yet but I am sure he pulled out the usual "really Proud of Our Guys"...."They Fought Their Guts Out"...."We'll Look at the Film"...."We Need to Get Better at "you name it""....We'll Improve on That"... "It Thought Bo had a Really Good Game, except for....", We'll keep Working with Him on That"..."Bo is Going to Win Lot's of Championships for Us"...etc.etc.etc....Yeah and there is an Easter Bunny Too.
I agree, Tank can be that next level guy,,but there are some really good players on the team beyond Tank ( like Shivers alot, DJ is also stong, Joiner now in the transfer portal has the skillset to be a factor but only average 5-6 plays per season. Gotta get them on the field. Gus can not evaluate or develop player talent. Bo Nix is a "slinger" and not in a good way. He finds a way to 'snatch defeat from the jaws of victory" when it really counts.
Same song different day. Excuses,,excuses, excuses. Tell the truth coach, we are who we are, we ain't getting better as long as you coach at AU. So "It is what it is" get over it.
Sorry,,,our best QB now plays for Kentucky...But you are right,,,you have to bring someone in. Bo doesn't have it,,so move on.
Bo is seldom good,,,he makes extremely poor decisions, his footwork, ball placement and basic fundamentals are "terrible" (with apologies to "Chuck"). He plays with fear and panic. Many of his completions are literally "chunk & duck". His receivers run under and catch balls he throws up for grabs. Worse starting QB in FCS.
That's what happens when you have Genies-azzzz coaches. They are always smarter than everyone else. As a former coach I can tell ya,,,if you think you are just gonna outsmart the other guy,,,you ain't. Team discipline, fundamentals, out block, tackle and hit and always remember you are usually just "one play away",,You can't fix the last play,,just the next one. Play what you know and if the other guy wins he was just better today....I can say too that my players never lost a game....but as a coach I did, because I failed to prepare them....
Agreed....Dem Hawgs are building a Program...I look forward to watching them to see if they can find some longer term success.....
Dawgs already blew their chance they kicked our tails couple of weeks back.....Bad Doggies.....
Bo Nix please find the transfer portal. You have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory one too many times. Well today it was three times.
Gus just being Gus,,spread the manure thick instead of taking responsibility for the lack of play by his team. I hear him talking but he says nothing. Worse he does nothing to bring discipline and intensity at game time...When things go wrong, they stay wrong,,,he scowls and cusses the players and/or officials instead of coaching...I have seen him scream at officials for 10 minutes over a "call" instead of focusing on the next play. Take your buyout and go to Arkansas...they maybe too smart for that now though....
His smoke and mirrors along with his luck has run out,,,he has been exposed again as a total Bust.
He'll finish his final season at AU...then he'll giggle all the way to the bank with his $21 Million Dollar buyout....and then someone else will be stupid enough to hire him but not at the price we paid.
His Plan seems to be to go from Bad to Worse. Well it seems to be working so far.
Just another overpaid and overhyped High School Coach....actually that's more of an insult to the many fine HS Coaches that never get a chance to move up and deserve to. I agree he is a true Genie's A.
Nix is a far below average QB at this level,,,he is well out of his depth. He cannot handle any pressure and is literally a "Chuck-ee Duck-ee QB.....Fear is an ugly thing if you want to play football....It' doesn't get any uglier than "Oh No!" Bo. Gus let the most talented QB on his team go to Kentucky...way to go Gus the Bust.
Wasn't Daddy's name,,but Daddy's friends,,,the group of "well heeled" Boosters who really control the AU Program...Bo needs to hit the transfer portal and Gus needs a fast Bus out of town with Chad carrying his bags so he can tag along. Worst Coach and QB in the SEC. Nobody tells Nick who plays or who stays,,,,AU is the exact opposite.
Really I'm trolling? The Carolina game just ended,,Bo was Bo again..So your Boy throws 3 picks that gave SC 21 points...Bo and Gus both go after the system. How do you like me now?
Bo is a Bust! It's not his physical skills, it's his lack of "game skills" poor decisions, comically sad "duck and chunk" throws. Even passes he gets credit for completing are many times just desperate heaves that his receivers somehow run under to make the catch. Poor execution is usually due to poor preparation or just a plain lack of skill (with Bo it appears to be both). Stick with Bo and get ready for Gus to be shown the Bus at the end of a 5-5 season. Get ready for more "Sore Eagle"
Can you say totally Delusional? Gus's statements about Bo proves he cannot evaluate the skills (or lack of) of the "Golden Child". Bo is worse than his Dad was who bought the starting job at AU via his big donor friends. Gus has to play Bo or he will be forced out by the rich Alum's. Trouble is he is out anyway due to his poor coaching and another disappointing season. Both Gus and Bo need to login to the transfer portal.
Have any of you watched Bo actually "play"? He panics, flushes, and just "chunks" the ball anywhere. A backward pass? Really? He doesn't understand basic football rule that even Pee-wee kids are taught. Gus has had long time to build Program,,hasn't done it and it appears he never will. Bo's Dad's Booster buddies got the starting job for Bo. The wrong QB transferred. May Bo can find the transfer portal. Lucky if they win 5 games. 500 won't get the job done. Both OL and DL need work,,,watch their feet,,,poor technique all the way around. Bo is a pratice Heisman candidate,,,red jersey "no contact" when the contact comes,,he goes. So AU is an average middle tier team..not the end of he world...Ala, GA will dominate them for the next 10 years.
Winning a football game has nothing to do with who "deserves it" there are no virtual or "moral" victories. As a former coach I would tell our team that I would take a 1/2 point win if I had to,,but it was either win or loose,,nothing in-between...There is only one stat that matters the score...Quick Whistle cost Ark the game...but they did play well enough to win...
Sorry they had no choice,,once blown dead,,all action after is post play..doesn't count except for any dead ball fouls. Quick Whistle, blown Call.
AU QB is worst starter in Division 1 Football. "Chucky-Duckie" won't get the job done.
You can fumble multiple times,,,the issue here is that at least one Official blew the whistle before the ball was recovered from the stupid idiotic not understanding basic football possession rules AU QB (he who should not be named)...once any whistle is blown the play is over no matter what action follows.
AU benefitted from the Rules,,any whistle even an inadvertent one ends the play no matter what. AU and Bo are both overrated...unfortunately for us Bama is not....
Bo panics Again..doesn't know basic football rules,,,backward or side pass is a free ball (fumble) and instead of protecting or getting back to the ball he turns his back to argue and plead with the Back Judge and Ref. so as Bugs Bunny would say "What a Ma-roon!" Hope Bo finds the transfer portal soon.
