Saban quote: “This guy [Johnny Manziel] has a lot of magic to him in terms of what he can do. We’ve busted some of our pressures, we haven’t contained the guy like we need to and we haven’t gotten off the field on third down when we created the situation. We have to play better. We played better once the game went on, which is usually how the defense goes against these guys. We’ve got to load the box and make them throw the ball.”
Manziel is 15 of 16, 118 yards
This is the first time that Alabama has trailed at halftime since 2010. Alabama went into the locker room trailing South Carolina, 21-9, on Oct. 9, 2010, in Columbia, S.C.

15 round fight. We survived the storm and I believe you will see the same type of adjustments that UF and LSU made against these guys to really stifle the offense in the 2nd half.
We weathered the storm. Now it is time to take over.
They get the ball first, so it's still uphill. Sure beats 20-0 though.

I've always wondered something. Why couldn't we have used LSu and UF's adjustments in their respective second halfs on our first half gameplan? I think the gameplan is fine. Saban said it best. We have busted containment and can't stop 3rd downs.
Now comes the time for faint of heart to turn it off. Gut check here Bama, we got this. Need stop on their first series and then run it dow their throats and take the lead. We got this. RTR

Something about getting used to the speed of the game.
Foster kicks it out of the end zone to start the 2nd half.

Good adjustment on the scramble.
Because you cannot replicate Manziel. You just have to experience it, figure what is not working for you on that day and adjust.
That was an impressive start for the Tide D.
OK, way to start the half
Hell yeah D that's what I'm talking about. We got this! RTR
Wow! 3 and out for the D! Nice job!!
Defense couldnt have started any better
here we go with the passing again.
