Malzahn: Bo Nix and Seth Williams will "do a better job of channeling that emotional energy" next time so they don't get into a spat on the sideline again

"I'm very confident he won't make the same mistakes again"

Auburn players ‘uncharacteristically’ mouthy in emotional South Carolina game



Auburn focuses on correcting trash talk
Auburn football coach Gus Malzahn said it's not like his team to talk so much trash, and they're focused on correcting that.

Jamien Sherwood walked up to South Carolina wide receiver Shi Smith and went facemask to facemask as he let loose, his mouth running furiously.

When Smith and Sherwood met again and again, the tension between them was visible. Sherwood, who finished with five total tackles, was credited with two tackles against Smith but met him multiple times at the end of plays to exchange words. The trash talk was not contained to the two of them, although Sherwood was the most visible talker.

“I think that’s very uncharacteristic of us,” coach Gus Malzahn said.

It spread across the Auburn defense with safety Smoke Monday and linebacker Cam Riley, among others, getting in the Gamecocks' faces.

It also affected the other side of the ball, as wide receivers Eli Stove, Ze’Vian Capers and Seth Williams were seen talking up a storm with the South Carolina defensive backs after both missed and made catches.

Williams’s and quarterback Bo Nix’s frustration at the failed plays boiled over and turned into tension within the Tigers bench. TV cameras caught the two of them mouthing off at each other as offensive coordinator Chad Morris stepped in to mediate. Williams ended up walking off the screen as Morris continued to talk to Nix.

Auburn saw on tape that Tennessee was mouthing at Shi Smith and had him so upset that Muschamp pulled him on the game deciding play, fearing a 15-yard penalty.

Vols made the stop and won 31-27.

Note for future: Vols are dirty little guys playing to get inside your head or pull your helmet off in the pile

"Uncharacteristically" did not go unnoticed.

Seemed pretty mundane to me. Thought it was an epic rap battle based on comments on this site.

SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic weighs in on regression of Auburn QB Bo Nix http://dlvr.it/RjxTPB


Quote
QB Bo Nix has been taking a lot of heat after the game, as his lack of situational awareness on the final drive hurt the Tigers...

“I don’t know if he’s regressed, but I don’t know how much he’s progressed. A lot of these issues were issues last year. I think some of them were excused by either the level of competition or him being a freshman quarterback. I don’t think he’s gone backward. This is the same stuff we saw last year. It’s more of an issue that he hasn’t gotten better.

“Have you ever seen another quarterback that was great where every play was panic-induced? There never seems to be a moment of calm with Bo Nix.”

Auburn has a lot of problems, but its biggest might be coaching http://dlvr.it/Rk0DDJ

Auburn is winless on the road this season in two tries, but the Tigers enter a pivotal road contest at Ole Miss Saturday (Noon, ET, SECN).

Gus Malzahn and Auburn are just living off reputation at this point.
Then again, maybe not. Auburn through a month of football is a 2-2 football team that should be 1-3, but for a badly missed call that gifted them a chance to beat Arkansas. They have 4 upcoming games at Ole Miss, at home with LSU, at Miss State and home against Tennessee, with a bye week smack in the middle of the quartet, that are all winnable. They are also all losable. The difference between 3-5  or worse and 5-3 or better will likely be a handful of plays. And some good coaching.

Right now, Auburn isn’t getting good coaching.

Let’s start with Chad Morris’s offense. Is it Year 1 in a new system? Yes. Is Morris’ playbook limited by a very young offensive line that is still trying to figure it out? Yes.

But Morris is also underutilizing RPOs, running them on only 13% of Auburn’s possessions so far, a nearly 12% decrease from last year, where Nix’s best success rates as a passer came off the RPO, which Malzahn ran nearly 25% of pass downs. Morris is also responsible for utilizing pass protection schemes that work and give Nix time. Even if Morris has to keep an extra man in to protect, that’s probably better than Nix throwing the ball on the run.

If you give Nix time to throw, even outside of RPO concepts, he can be calm and he can be accurate.

But Nix is hardly the be-all and end all of this Auburn team’s issues.

On Nix’s final interception, for example, star Seth Williams very clearly ran the wrong route, coming under fire from his head coach and Nix on the sideline after the throw. Auburn also dropped 3 passes, damaging the numbers for Nix on a day when he threw for 272 yards, a career-high for him on the road. Weapons either haven’t developed at wide receiver beyond Williams and Schwartz.

How about the way Malzahn mismanaged the clock in the first half Saturday?

“We have some things we need to clean up. But I believe we will. We’re capable of being a very good team.”
-- Malzahn seems to think Auburn is close

It’s tough to say, but for now, the Tigers don’t appear well-coached. Ole Miss, under new hire Lane Kiffin, does.

Malzahn thought Bo Nix ‘competed his tail off’ in Auburn’s loss at South Carolina http://dlvr.it/Rk0N7Q


Quote
“He competed like crazy — I do know that. He fought — had 15 rushes and throwing. Each game is a little bit different, but being able to run the football and read balanced, that’s really what we’re going to focus on. That will help everything. He competed his tail off and I thought he made some big-time runs, ran physical and made some scramble plays that helped us on third down, too.

“We had practice Sunday, and I think overall, not just him, but our whole team is disappointed that we didn’t win the game. Now we have to do something about it. We have to keep improving and put that behind us, so really that was the mindset Sunday after we watched film and had a short practice.”
