Bama has had 4 games where more pass plays than run plays were called since 08

quote:

It all goes back to the run-pass split Alabama used Saturday. Against Texas A&M, the Crimson Tide called only 29 running plays and 36 passing. For some teams nationally, that’s a typical split. For others, that actually is too much running.

But for Alabama under Nick Saban, that’s an awful lot of passing, even with a quarterback like AJ McCarron, who ranks seventh nationally in passing efficiency.

In the previous 63 games, which date back to the start of the 2008 season, Alabama has had a more pass-heavy split only three times, all in 2010. The Crimson Tide lost all three: Auburn (25 run calls, 46 pass), LSU (28, 37) and South Carolina (22, 42).

The play calling was pretty awful on Saturday. Especially in the red zone. It seemed like we never got in a rhythm and became too predictable IMO

well that's sickening, especially when you're running for 5+ yards per carry.

Would it be a sin to run the ball 40 times a game when you have the horses to do so?

Two of those games we were down by twenty points, south carolina and A&M, so that might be a factor in pass plays being called.

Very early in the game, with plenty of time to stay with the game plan.

The article is just pointing out, that when Bama passes more, for whatever reason, it's likely a loss.

I'll say this to go a long with it: we could have really used Fowler Saturday.

Fumbling doesn't help the cause to call more rushes either.

For sure. He was a huge loss this year.

He's been my favorite since 2010, even with Ingram and TR. When he went down I wanted to punch the person sitting next to me but it was a kid and I don't think that would look too good in BDS.

Same here. When they moved him to FB I understood it but I was like: still need to hand the ball off to him and make the defense wish we hadn't.
