Miami went out and beat a solid team on the road. A team that was undefeated and showed that despite qb issues they can win any game especially against a poor opponent.
Fortunately, we now know that the coaching staff can come up with enough defensive game planning to win games. Unfortunately, they need two weeks to prepare the team.
Fortunately, we know that Saban has the ability to coach this team despite his refusal to be consistant in what he says and take undiffused responsibility for the teams troubles. Unfortunately, this win more than ever exposes his failure this year to prepare the team for any of their previous games.
If we can go out and win on the road against one of the best and most complete teams in the league. How come we stunk so horribly against the worst teams in the league? There is only one answer. The team wasn't prepared properly. We'll see how Saban and company do from this point forward without 2 weeks to prepare for the rest of our tough games.
Maybe Saban took the time in his brief hiatus to look in the mirror and actually admit to himself that he hadn't been doing his job properly and he needed to change some things drastically if he wanted to right the ship.
As a brief aside, Joey wasn't good. If you only complete 50% of your passes, throw for 140 yards and give up 2 picks, that's about as poor as it gets. Ben is throwing for 400 a game and at least a td or 2 but would anyone say he's been good? For every 2 tds he's throwing 3 ints. At least this is a blip in his career. For Joey, 2 tds to every 3 ints has been his career.
