re: **tOfficial NC Game Thread: Alabama - 16 vs. Clemson - 44** End..Bama loses - JeffAtlanta
[quote]His Plan B and C was hamstrung with Saivion out there. His Plan B and C was hamstrung with ILB play. The defense consists of dependent parts.[/quote] If the defense is so dependent on a healthy 5* at every position playing like 5*, then the defense likely needs to be changed. Don't get me...

re: What % of the blame goes to the coaches? - JeffAtlanta
100% of the blame goes to the coaches, but not all in this game. Both the offense and the defense regressed during the year and the coaches had no answer. Saban was in a tough spot having to promote Tosh or lose him. Kirby is recruiting so well that he didn't have much of a choice. ...

re: **tOfficial NC Game Thread: Alabama - 16 vs. Clemson - 44** End..Bama loses - JeffAtlanta
[quote]Saban: Well, I thought that if we were going to have an opportunity, the best way to defend them is to rush four guys and play different kinds of coverages, and when we rushed four guys, we didn't get a lot of pressure.[/quote] I have to wonder why Saban didn't have a plan B or plan C when...

re: Next Year’s Team - Stacked - JeffAtlanta
[quote]QB: Tua, Jalen, Mac, Tualia Tagovailoa 4*, Paul Tyson 4*[/quote] If Jalen is still on the team as a QB, then the team will likely regress. Most of the offensive problems stem from Tua throwing 4 quick touchdowns before the defense has settled in and then either "taking the air out the bal...

[quote]How did bama not get him?[/quote] It was my understanding that the Jalen offense led to several receivers (including Ross) to go elsewhere. ...

re: We all saw this coming. - JeffAtlanta
[quote]This. I can't remember the last time Bama had LBers that were this bad at reacting to a play.[/quote] That has to fall on the coaching. It was hard to miss for anyone who watched Training with the Tide that Tosh was over his head. (Really wasn’t impressed with Locksley either) ...

re: Let’s not overlook Tua’s bad play tonight... - JeffAtlanta
[quote]But Tua does predetermine a little too much and doesnt take the checkdown enough. I saw 2 or 3 plays where the RBs were wide open for a checkdown 1st down and he didnt get it to them.[/quote] I think that Saban’s handling of the QB situation led to this. When Alabama got big leads, Saban ...

re: Our players have no heart - JeffAtlanta
[quote]I could tell in his halftime interview that they didn’t know what to adjust.[/quote] Unfortunately true. Saban mentioned that Clemson was just copycatting things that other teams used successfully against Alabama. I think Saban is frustrated that his assistant coaches are essentially hel...

re: Our players have no heart - JeffAtlanta
Saban's tendency to "take the air out of the ball" during the season likely contributed to this. It prevented the team from developing a killer mentality and led to developing bad habits....

re: Fire/Demote Tosh - JeffAtlanta
Regarding Locksley: Saban does need to learn to let coaches go that take other jobs. I know it has worked out ok here and there in the past, but most in spite of that coach staying on. I have never seen a more unprepared team and I think that is why Saban isn't even mad. ...

re: Fire/Demote Tosh - JeffAtlanta
I think that Saban was pressured to promote and keep Tosh because of how well that Kirby is recruiting at UGA. Tosh and some of the other defensive coaches are obviously over their head. Hopefully Saban will take over more of the defense next year while Tosh learns....

re: Can PFF explain how Tua scored so low against auburn - JeffAtlanta
[quote]I understand the idea of knocking QBs for incompletions that should have been interceptions and not giving them credit for screen/pop passes that turn into 60 yard TDs, but completing a 40 yard pass to a guy who doesn't have a defender within 10 yards of him really shouldn't be viewed much di...

re: Dan Enos a potential candidate for Kansas HC spot - JeffAtlanta
[quote]I remember when Fran almost took the Kansas job after 2001. He wanted out of Tuscaloosa bad.[/quote] Really? I followed on TI during that time but don't remember that coming out, but I've tried to block out most of the time period. :lol:...

re: Dan Enos a potential candidate for Kansas HC spot - JeffAtlanta
[quote]You're not wrong, but I think you can see in Jalen's play this year that he has improved, when he regressed from '16 to '17.[/quote] I think the jury is still out that. Jalen always looked great against average defenses - and was even offensive player of the year in 2016. I agree with t...

re: Dont think it will happen, but - JeffAtlanta
It's not just the money - it's his career and livelihood. It is foolish for a person to value "having fun in college" over furthering your career. It's one thing to stay to improve your career prospects by spending your year learning, growing and improving, but not for companionship. Kell...

re: My 5 Take-Aways from the Tennessee Game, post yours too... - JeffAtlanta
[quote]What? Slope of the field?[/quote] Yeah, never heard anything like that before - always assumed they were all the same. Check out about 30 secs into the interview - the reporter asks Tua if the wind affected his accuracy and that's when Tua mentions the slope of the field. [link=(https://...

[quote]1. Tua was little off on his throws most of the time. [/quote] After the game, Tua said that his throwing high was due to the slope of the UT field being steeper than he's used to. :dunno: ...

re: My 5 Take-Aways from the Tennessee Game, post yours too... - JeffAtlanta
My primary takeaway is that Danielson should stop trying to officiate the game. I like Danielson a lot - I think his insightfullness is second only to Herbstreit, but his attempts to officiate the game just feeds into conspiracy theories....

re: What do you guys think about the "Jalen" packages? - JeffAtlanta
[quote]Stats don't lie.[/quote] Stats “lie” all the time - there are myriad books written on the subject. “Stats” are meaningless without context and a sophisticated enough understanding to perform proper analysis. There is an adage in the data science world - “anyone who is competent enoug...

re: What do you guys think about the "Jalen" packages? - JeffAtlanta
You don't see value in it? Not really - the offense was operating just fine (if not better) without it. Although the plays have been positive yardage, the package seems to disrupt the rhythm of the offense. The drive you referenced stalled out immediately after all of the commotion and re...
