re: Saban's comments on the defense post-South Carolina - prevatt33
[quote]Totally different levels of competition in this comparison... one was a 14-0 team with its starting QB (a Heisman Trophy finalist, BTW), the other a 1-1 team playing a TF backup QB.[/quote] No offense and I get your point to a degree, but life is not a video game. My senior year of HS, ou...

[quote]Owens playing the entire game on skates [/quote] This is another example of fan hyperbole. Owens wasn't "on skates the entire game." He certainly had some missed assignments, but he also made a lot of plays and executed well at times. But fans don't notice when he does something right ...

Adding to that, we frequently audible when the QB audibles. Therefore, our Audibler must be physically close to the QB. ...

[quote]IF a high ankle sprain[/quote] If it was a sprain, they'd say it. Just my 2 cents. Boz and others have heard 'significant time' to recover. This is not a sprain. Also, Saban has said it's a foot injury multiple times. It's not an ankle sprain. ...

re: Saban's comments on the defense post-South Carolina - prevatt33
No, we didn't get much pressure that night. But if Diggs hadn't gotten hurt, Savion "The Liability" Smith wouldn't have been on the field to be picked on all day. Also, the offense was by far the weaker link that day, and the offense is why we lost. Period. Clemson's only offense was chunk pl...

[quote]Back when Rashad Johnson was a senior, I seem to remember that he called the defense. Any reason why we can't do that again.[/quote] When Rashad Johnson was a senior, the defense was called by Rolando McClain. Johnson made the secondary calls. The Mike LB has called the defense for 100%...

[quote] He was being sarcastic[/quote] Yeah, sorry. I haven't really been closely following the bitching and moaning. It's constant and frankly exhausting to read and interact with. My bad if I jumped in incorrectly. Later. :cheers:...

[quote] Team A - Clemson's defense against us in the National Championship Game. Total master class![/quote] This is pure stupidity. Bama marched up and down the field versus Clemson to the tune of 443 total yards (Clemson had 481 for reference), but stalled in the red zone due to poor execution...

re: Why doesn't Saban use timeouts? - prevatt33
Don't get me wrong: Saban is scant with his TO use, but I can't remember a time when he cost Bama in any significant way because of it. He let's his boys play. It's fine by me. He's won half the nattys in a decade. It ain't broke... ...

re: Why doesn't Saban use timeouts? - prevatt33
[quote] This reasoning goes completely against everything Saban preaches.[/quote] Saban is a no-nonsense coach, and doesn't do something just to do it. Everything has a purpose. And letting your defense play through adversity is more useful and purposeful than calling timeout and coddling them. ...

[quote]it seems we’re better off getting burned for a big play TD than giving up 10-12 play, 6 minute dink-and-dunk drives all game long.[/quote] I gotcha. Now I understand. Your defensive plan is to make it easier for the opposing offense to score TDs by playing less assignment-sound football....

[quote]I’m not criticizing, mainly because this could be a six-of-one/half-dozen-of-the-other deal, but just asking a question here: why don’t we just be aggressive and be “ourselves”? Yeah, we’ll blow some assignments and the opponent will hit a one or two-play scoring drive on us, but two things I...

[quote]Why doesn't Saban use timeouts?[/quote] 1) How many games does Bama play (and Saban coach) that are in any way in doubt enough to care about timeouts, or care about halting the games to regroup the D? Three or 4 per year? In our last game...what?...should Saban have called timeouts so tha...
