Have we turned a corner offensively?
Earlier in the season we were told it would take awhile (6 games (?) or so) for us to really begin to see Coach Mo's offense.

Do you think we actually saw it vs aTm or was it just a lucky confluence of events where Fitz came out motivated/comfortable, we played at home, and aTm defense played awful?

For as critical as I've been of our coach, I do hope he is figuring things out and getting used to being an SEC coach and the level of preparedness etc required.

To be fair, trying to get your offense "on track" vs Kty, Fla or LSU is a tough row to hoe.. but that's life in the SEC.

Our offense will certainly look better against Louisiana Tech, Arkansas, and Ole Miss. I am still not sold we win all 3 of those but we will see I guess...

Alabama is the only game with a decent defense left that we will see whether or not this offense has improved or if the offense just took advantage of the worst pass defense in the SEC

Game could be an outlier. I’m not a believer until it’s consistent

Well, if you wath the replay or dvr, you will hear the coach saying things like "restricted the QB" and he can not coach in "FEAR" of the QB

1- He is the leader of that team.
2- If he is coaching fear of the QB, the QB will have zero confidence in himself.

3- he opened up and dictated tempo rather than being dictated to.


Listen to him here at the 11:20 mark: "I talked to the team Friday night:

I truly like this coach. You can't help but to want him to do well.

I 100% believe he will accomplish what Mullen did not.

I mean he has been utterly inept at coaching up the players he has on the roster right now. I am willing to see though what he can do with his own recruits.

In watching a bit of the replay,
one thing that really stood out to me was the blocking of Aeris Williams the state RB.

His presence seemed to really solidify the overall pass blocking and helped Nick feel a lot more comfortable.

Was really pleased with how the offense looked against La Tech. Really nice balance and surprising accuracy by Fitz.

Just a few weeks ago I was skeptical that Fitz could hit those throws with touch against air, much less a defense.

Now, we get bama. If we can move the ball a bit against them that will vindicate a lot of what Joe was preaching early in the season.

Oddly enough, I'm more concerned now that Bama will be able to run the ball against us. Their rushing offense has really improved the last few weeks.

I do not think it has necessarily improved, they just have been able to win on the pass and simply are choosing not to run.

I rewatched Alabama-LSU and the big thing I noticed was that Tua under pressure looks a lot different than Tua with time. LSU was better than all of the teams they had played, but they simply did not have the pass rush to keep Tua on his toes.

State has a formula to win this game defensively. State will keep Alabama under 29, the question is whether or not the offense can score enough, and looking at their performances against solid teams on the road(Kentucky and LSU), probably not.

Yup. I was way wrong (as usual).

This offense and the offensive coaching staff are complete crap.

We may beat Arky and Ole Miss but against teams with a decent defense this offense doesn't work and looks awful in the process. My guess is it just takes too long, so things that worked at Fordham where you are playing against linebackers that run a 4.8 don't work against SEC linebackers or lineman.

Damn I was 100% on point
