Bo Nix donates bulletin board material to Alabama before Iron Bowl

Auburn quarterback Bo Nix won’t play in the Iron Bowl on Saturday due to a recent season-ending ankle injury, but he’s sure to be a talking point in the Alabama locker room ahead. the big game.

During his weekly appearance on “The Next Round” on Monday, Nix shared some of his thoughts on Alabama’s shootout victory over Arkansas. He mentioned some of the game’s “controversial calls”. He said it is common knowledge that the Crimson Tide tends to benefit from such calls. Nix was happy to elaborate.

“I think you can watch the game and any unbiased person would think something is different,” Nix said. “It’s like that. It’s kind of like it always has been. It’s part of the game. They have good players. You can’t take that away from them.

Alabama quarterback Bryce Young was asked about Nix’s comments, and he said talking is a “external factor”On which the tide cannot waste energy.

There were many calls in Alabama’s 42-35 win over Arkansas that benefited Nick Saban’s side. CBS rules analyst Gene Steratore said on the show that the Razorbacks were on the wrong side of several bad calls.

Of course, Alabama fans might point out that Nix didn’t complain when he took a huge hiatus from one of the season’s most controversial plays last year.

Great teams and great coaches tend to get the benefit of the doubt. This is not a new concept in sports, and it is certainly a concept that applies to Saban and Alabama.
