Auburn venting, frustrated as South Carolina celebrates historic win

By | October 18, 2020

On a historic day for South Carolina, Auburn’s frustrations spilled over to the sideline Saturday.

First, Bo Nix and Seth Williams got into a shouting match. Then Nix could be seen venting with offensive coordinator Chad Morris, who kept his calm as the sophomore quarterback argued his case.

It happens every Saturday in stadiums across the country, but it was more telling here as South Carolina survived Auburn in a 30-22 victory by stopping the Tigers’ comeback on the final play.

South Carolina hadn’t defeated the Tigers since FDR was a rookie in the White House (1933, if you’re keeping score).

Auburn will go as far as Nix and Williams can take it. That’s why the brief exchange on the sideline was a telling glimpse into frustrations that can’t be easily resolved.
