Tough loss for the Tide. To the surprise of many, much of the LSU game carried over this Saturday. A&M played and coached a great game. Props to the Aggies ... the season for the Tide is far from over. Please keep the discussion civil and no personal attacks to players. Thanks, Shannon

True. Kids played their hearts out. Show some restraint.
Def agree on still beat up from LSU but this aTm team got handled by LSU and UF at home and should have lost to Ole Miss but can stomp into BDS and bully around Bama.
How are they so fresh, hell they've played 9 wks in a row!
But the play calling was terrible.
Thanks for stepping up and saying this. So many people on this board are chicken littles and frankly, I can't stand being here during times like this. We are 21-2 in our last 23 games and we still have the SEC championship to play for. It sucks losing, but geeze, so many people here want to throw the whole team under the bus.
Couldn't agree more, Kansas St. is AT TCU and Notre Dame still has to play USC in L.A.
Can I personally attack a poster
I agree Lucky. But could not believe on the 7 we run once and throw 3 times I don't get it.
Lucky, please give your thoughts around the playcalling. We need an outside person to tell us if we're wrong about this or Nuss has too much Pac-12 in him.
I won't disagree, but if AJ makes 2 of 7 clutch throws, we win that ball game, NOT all on Nuss.
Classy post Lucky.
I'm still predicting 2 of the 3 undefeateds lose before the end of the season, likely Kansas St and Notre Dame.
The "blessing in disguise" is that this game will prepare us for Oregon. Have to play our smaller, faster, better conditioned personnel against teams like A&M and Oregon. CNS and Smart will learn from this game.
You get out of it what you put into it!
Great post, Lucky
Well said, Lucky and congrats to A&M. Hats off to Manzeil!
I think we played well once our feet got under us... But to the media... Just please stop the NFL comparisons, talking about the INT streak, etc....
Johnny football is the real deal BTW...

What about coaches?
BBD would you agree with me. That we gotta start recruiting more speed on defense over bulk? More teams are gonna spread us out. & we just aren't getting to them via the blitz it seems. We need more speed in the front seven imho.

absolutely; lets keep our heads up. There is a lot of season left!
RTR! Proud of our team!
No personal attack on the players is correct, but that's the second time in two weeks we've been out coached, and out coached pretty bad. There is a blueprint that is starting to show on how to attack our defense. Get your best personnel on the field and get the play off as quick as possible to keep us from getting set or making our checks. I got sick of seeing us not set or almost not set on defense.
And a big part of the loss was first down play calling. If seven men or less are in the box then we should've been running the football. Especially on first down. We even ran well when the had eight in the box. I can't understand why they don't have AJ checking off when we can put a "hat on a hat". We've become so predictable throwing on first down.
We're getting waaay too cute on both sides of the ball.
Ok ---- I can see your point.
But please also report when writing the stories in the coming week -------- why we did NOT have to lose. And try and find out why we abandon the run especially when it was so successful.
Also - why the number 1 team in America with the proclaimed best O line in America after a 1st down at the 5 ----- decided to do what they did?
Yeah we need to be civil and me included ------- but we also need not sunshine pump this loss.....
It did not have to happen..... Most of it was PURE coaching mistakes from our OC and SC and NOT carry over from LSU
Our play calling sucked ass. That all I will cry about from this game. It was terrible. Run the freaking ball for gods sake.
They are paid millions. They are big boys.
If we run the ball when its 1st and goal, instead of failed pass plays, 90% sure we win. His play calling the last 2 games has been horrible, trying to change our identity.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Really don't want to go to Miami if we're 12-1.
14-0 or bust at this point under Saban. Anything less than 14-0 and I'm just no satisfied.
