Saban being a jerk at halftime is why Alabama always covers the spread... his boys play for 60 minutes... ALL of them..
The only punk who can even hold a candle to Saban's "jerkness" is that idiot out there in So.Cal that keeps going for meaningless 2-point conversions...
I'm still not happy with our defense and some of our tackling.
I'm hoping some of our pass rush problems are just,that Nick and Kirby are going
vanilla right now to bring out some surprises for Mr. Mallett next week.
What do you think?
Oh yea...Clemson is a bunch of chokers.
This defense isn't as good as last year's.... Hell, this defense isn't as good as the one 2 years ago...
Inexperience is the main reason.... but this is the smallest on the defensive line Bama has been under Saban yet... Cody was a mountain, but Deaderick and Lorenzo Washington were both huge lineman also...
We're not as stout at the POA as we have been... and Hightower just doesn't have quite the speed or range of McClain... the linebackers aren't getting to the perimeter as fast as we used to...
Dareus is going to go a long ways towards improving the pass rush... he was literally unblockable yesterday unless he was double teamed... but the other guys up front just aren't getting the penetration to previous year's standards... they either stalemate or get moved off the line...
Kirby has been bringing safety blitzes with Barron in order to create a little pressure... but we haven't seen the overload blitzes yet that were so effective with Arenas blitzing off the corner.. they're saving those packages for SEC play... Mallet is going to see things next week that Bama hasn't shown yet... but I've also noticed that Mallet is a different QB than he was last year... he's identifying the blitzes now and checking out of bad plays.. he did it with regularity yesterday against Grantham's 3-4 defense... it's going to be a great matchup...
Bama's tackling isn't quite up to past standards this year.. but those are incredibly high standards, and that's something that Saban keeps preaching to these kids.... but we're the best tackling defense in college football outside of Nebraska's... when I break down film of ALL these other games, one thing stands out for me above all....
.. nobody can tackle anymore.. I don't know what's happened... it's like it's not being coached properly due to trying to stay on top of all these spread offenses...
Hey Ted...Have you seen or read anything about this book coming out "A Lynch Mob Mentality"
The judge in the Ronnie Cottrell case wote it.
Seems Ark. in addition to Tenn. has their hands dirty flapping that lip against Bama.
Seems odd it coming out now..right before the Bama-Ark. game.
