    When Mayock reviews the film he's going to see that we used Notre Dame's strength on defense, which is a very simple fast-flow/quick read, and turned it into a weakness. The simplicity of the defense is designed to allow the front 7 to play fast and get into their run fits quicker. Most of what we did was shift into formations that dictated Notre Dame's defense to be out of position.

    Notre Dame's front 4 got penetration on a regular basis.... because Bama allowed them to penetrate when and where we wanted. The front would get good push, only to be turned completely away from the ball.... it's the old Pin-and-Pull techniques of zone blocking. When you allow penetration only to turn the defender away from the ball, that allows for second level blocking.

    Notre Dame and coach Diaco couldn't adjust to that. Dropping a safety into the box as an 8th defender can't be your only adjustment at this level of football. The safety (Motta) and Te'o were in position within their run fits to make the play singled up on the back in several instances, but simply could not do it. They were able to do it all year using this simple formula defensively.... but they hadn't seen anything like the backs Bama brings to the dance.

    They were out-schemed and out-executed from an X's and O's perspective. Couldn't match up athletically or physically when in position to make the play when it simply boiled down to their player vs. Bama's.

    Thought Motta got a lot more of those opportunities than Te'o did.

    @ Omar's tweet:

    OmarKelly Spent 20 mins out my life reading Deadspins piece on Manti Te'o's fake,dead girlfriend. Great reporting, but I'm left thinking...who cares

    Two things.

    1.) One of the most famous athletes in America apparently invented a dead girlfriend for the publicity... and no one should care???
    2.) It took you 20 minutes to read that story? Did you sound out each word phonetically or something?

    Yeesh.

    What a douchebag. I hope he goes undrafted now. Who does that...?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    He is either a ridiculous liar, a ridiculous idiot, or both.

    Don't want this guy on our team.

    Manti Teo is a joke. Teo's character still >>> Ray Lewis' character though.

    One made a 3rd graders lie and built up a heisman push off of it. The other lied about people who actually were murdered.

    ESPN is currently burying Teo. Just as soon as they finished with a segment on him, they go straight to some footage glorifying Ray Lewis.

    yeah Manti's lines about being duped are straight up bull. Too many inconsistencies there from him alone to say he didn't know.
