Bo Nix

I've gotten so much ear full of Bo Nix you would think he invented Alabama White BBQ Sauce.  Auburn fans are pumped up.  I don't want to wish the kid to fail so I hope Gus has other issues with the bus.

How likely is your favorite SEC team to change QBs in 2019?

Quote
Counting on a change
Arkansas: 75%
Chad Morris waited until Monday of game week to decide, or at least announce, that Ben Hicks won the starting job. If Hicks struggles, we know Nick Starkel is a ready, willing, veteran arm who is perfectly capable of nabbing the job. Given the personnel involved and the schedule they will face, you might be more likely to see 3 Razorback starting QBs this year than one.

Auburn: 60%

Nick Starkel was zipping the 🏈 with such velocity that db's with 2 steps could not converge in time to disrupt the play.  Also he was much more adapt as a escape artist.

It wasn't like our Freshmen WR suddenly figured out how to get open during the 2nd half...the Ole Miss defense played bump & run because they had no respect for Hicks stretching the field, so it was essentially atleast 9 players hovering within 3 yds of the line of scrimmage the entire 1st half.

That alone crowds the running lanes allowing a player to simply shadow the QB.

Whaley was sent in as a extra blocker for 3rd & long.  Rakeem Boyd was having to dodge defender's 3 yds in his own backfield.  Our Offensive Line right now although improved is easily the worst in the SEC West. (not sure about the east).

At this very moment Nick Starkel is oozing with confidence heading into next weeks game vs pass happy Colorado State. (79 attempts in 2 games)

Wilson: If you have any questions about Tennessee’s starting quarterback situation, Jeremy Pruitt wants you to know he doesn’t share them.


Quote
“He deserves to be our quarterback,” Pruitt said. “He has outplayed everybody.”

Jarrett Guarantano had a remarkably efficient afternoon, bouncing back from two subpar outings to open the season for the Vols (1-2). He completed 7 of 8 passes for 142 yards.

Why now is the perfect time for Tennessee to be all in with Brian Maurer … and not a ‘sixth man’



Quote
The question is, does Jeremy Pruitt know it?

Everyone with a pair of eyeballs and a pulse could have watched Saturday night and seen that yes, the Brian Maurer era is here. At least it should be.

If there were ever a time for players, a coaching staff and a fan base to get behind a true freshman quarterback, now is it. That means letting Maurer succeed and fail with every snap possible, and not using Jarrett Guarantano as a “sixth man” like he was Saturday against Georgia.

When Pruitt went on “SEC Nation” ahead of Saturday’s game and announced that’s what Guarantano’s role would be, you could hear the collective groan across Knoxville.

“Well, I want to start with Jarrett Guarantano. First of all, this guy is a guy that I believe in,” Pruitt said during his appearance on the show before Saturday’s game. “He had a really good spring, fall camp — along with a lot of the players on our team. We’ve not executed exactly at the level that we want to be at. To me, I look at it kind of like a basketball shooter. You got a hot shooter that’s not making shots, you put him on the bench and let him be the sixth man. Jarrett Guarantano’s going to play today.

“But Brian Maurer is a guy that has worked hard. He’s a really good athlete, so we’re going to give him an opportunity to see what he does to start the game.”

I get it. Pruitt is trying to do right by someone who has said and done all the right things in his program. Few have endured as much as Guarantano.

Why Ole Miss appears to have given the keys to QB John Rhys Plumlee



Quote
It appears this will be Plumlee’s team moving forward, with a few caveats. He will have to improve throwing the football. While he has been fantastic in orchestrating the Rich Rodriguez offense, the passing game has not been one of his bright spots.

Let’s be honest, when you rush for 413 yards as a team and dominate defensively like the Rebels did, there is no need for a passing game.

Mizzou has the #2 total defense in our nation.

Gus finally addresses possibility of Auburn changing QBs



Quote
Bo Nix had a September (and Aug. 31) to remember, but the month of October has been up-and-down for Auburn and its quarterback. While only so much can be expected of a true freshman playing on the road in The Swamp and Death Valley, some have wondered if redshirt freshman Joey Gatewood might be the better fit as Auburn’s starting signal-caller.

Malzahn: “We’re going to do whatever is best for our team, but right now, a lot of the things — Bo has been put in some pretty tough situations. There were some things he wanted back, but there (were) also some things he did well. So, he’ll continue to improve, and that’s how we’re looking at it.”

In Nix he trusts


Quote
Bo Nix struggled once again in a hostile road environment against a top-tier opponent.

The true freshman completed 15-of-35 passes for 157 yards during Auburn’s 23-20 loss to LSU on Saturday, and some Auburn fans began — or, in some cases, continued — to clamor for backup quarterback Joey Gatewood to take over. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn does not seem to have given any thought to making a change at quarterback heading into the final month of the season, however.

“Well, I mean, we’re going to do what’s best for our team,” Malzahn said Sunday. “But right now, a lot of the things — Bo was put in some pretty tough situations on nine third-down-and-10-plus, and there was some things that he would like to have back, but there was also some things that he did well. So, he’ll continue to improve. That’s how we’re looking at it.”

Malzahn is sticking behind his 19-year-old starter despite some recent struggles against quality opponents on the road.

SEC QB Power Rankings, Week 10

These are the current SEC QBs, not the transferred which is a much longer list



Quote
1. Tua
Tank for Tua Watch: Their backs against the wall, the Miami Dolphins snatched defeat from the jaws of victory Monday night, racing to a stunning, 14-0 lead at Pittsburgh before rallying to give up 27 unanswered points over the final 3 quarters. The come-from-ahead loss extended the Dolphins’ losing streak to 10 games going back to last season and kept them on pace with the 0-8 Cincinnati Bengals for the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft —

2. Joe Burrow, LSU

3. Jake Fromm State Georgia

7. Lynn Bowden Jr., Kentucky
Bowden’s arrow is pointing in the opposite direction. His move from wide receiver was supposed to be a short-term solution in the absence of Sawyer Smith, but after the romp over Missouri is this really a question?

8. Bo Nix

14. Nick Starkel or Ben Hicks or John Stephen Jones or K.J. Jefferson, Arkansas
Incredibly, Starkel absorbed a relentless wave of pressure from Alabama on Saturday without taking a single sack.

Ole Miss is entering its fourth game using two quarterbacks and coach Matt Luke has said the team is still looking for the right balance and production. The Rebels get another chance this week against New Mexico State.

“We have to make some plays in the passing game to get over that hump,” Luke said at his regular weekly press conference. “I think you go out and execute what you do. Because again, you got to go back to the fact that you’re in games, and you have chances to win these games, and if we execute better we feel we’ll win the games.”

In a span of a few weeks, Tennessee seemingly went from having little confidence in any of the quarterbacks on the roster to having confidence in all three scholarship signal-callers to win them a game.

That’s clearly a nice place to be, considering the alternative, but the shuffling under center has been interesting as the Vols have started Jarrett Guarantano, Brian Maurer, JT Shrout and even technically Jauan Jennings at quarterback this season.

According to Pruitt, Maurer could be available to play in Lexington and was cleared to play against UAB last weekend.

When asked to explain Tennessee’s unique QB rotation last week, Pruitt explained that Guarantano’s experience gives him an advantage that Shrout does not yet possess but it’s clear the team is trying to help Shrout develop with some action on the field.

Joe Craddock, in Year 2 as the offensive coordinator, said Monday that while Jones will start, Jefferson would take snaps, and earlier rather than later.

“We’re definitely going to see him earlier,” said Craddock, who added that the coaching staff would evaluate which of the two QBs moves the ball better and allot playing time accordingly.

Maybe it’s the intangibles in which Jones has the edge over Jefferson? Maybe he knows the offense better? Who knows. Craddock said the bye week helped immensely in that Jefferson was afforded a good portion of the reps in practice.

My hope is that Morris can figure it out,,,

Joe Moorhead shares how Garrett Shrader and Tommy Stevens have dealt with injuries



Quote
About Shrader, Moorhead said he’s still working through it, and did a nice job in practice, but since the Bulldogs are off this week, he would have an update on Monday about the plan moving forward.

Moorhead added that the Stevens’ injuries have hindered him.

“Pretty significantly, I think it showed in his performance,” he said. “Garrett’s first start, Tommy looked 100 percent in practice, had another great week. I told him that we need him to use his arm and his feet now that he’s healthy and I think that’s something he did (last week vs. Arkansas).”

Moorhead also shared that Erroll Thompson has an upper body injury that’s not too serious, and he practiced on Tuesday in a limited role.
