Charles Barkley wants Bo Nix would not have ‘poked the bear’ ahead of Iron Bowl

” I’m not mad, I’m simply dissatisfied.”

That’s an expression no guy wishes to hear, whether from your other half, your father, or your spouse’s papa. That’s basically what Charles Barkley’s stating to hurt Auburn quarterback Bo Nix. Previously today, the junior signal-caller provided a less than radiant evaluation about video game authorities, leaving Barkley dissatisfied days prior to the Iron Bowl.

According to Nix, Alabama gets favoritism from authorities. Throughout a look on The Next Round, he stated in part: “Just a few of those questionable calls (in a 7-point win versus Arkansas) that remained in that video game raises some concerns for sure, unless you’re an Alabama fan. That’s simply part of the video game.”

And when Poppa Barkley learnt, he was none too pleased with the little cub.

” Well, to start with, I want he had not stated that,” Barkley stated while appearing on The Paul Finebaum Show Wednesday.

Though Barkley, a previous Auburn Tiger, might not disagree with Nix’s remarks, he would choose the quarterback keep his remarks to himself. Simply about everybody throughout the college football landscape has actually had a bear of a time attempting to beat Alabama, and Auburn does not require to provide the Tide any more inspiration for the approaching video game.

” Do not poke the bear, particularly if you’re not playing. When I saw that, I stated, ‘Oh, cool down, little fella. You’re not even playing in the video game,'” Barkley informed Finebaum. “Don’t poke the bear.”

Nix will miss out on Saturday’s Iron Bowl because he needed to go through season-ending ankle surgical treatment previously today. Now, his colleagues need to handle the power couple that is the Crimson Tide and the authorities without him.

” Listen, I like Bo Nix. It’s regrettable he got injured,” included Barkley. “But I was a little dissatisfied that he– the only time you poke the bear is if you’ve got a say in the video game. And sitting over there on the sideline, you got no say in the video game. Shhhhh.”

Disappointed or not, Barkley will need to smile and bear it for another number of days. Alabama and Auburn will not kickoff till late Saturday afternoon. That leaves lots of time for your moms and dads, partner, in-laws and even Sir Charles to forgive and forget.
