We give it to a freshman named Yeldon and he and Kelly Johnson give it all for a first down. Next play AJ to Amari for six.
GA driving. Backz against the wall. CJ gives it all and grazes the pass. Ball caight short end of game. SEC Champs and Miami bound.
So many heroes tonight.
I didn't get it into the notebook, but here's Saban talking about that:
Q. You mentioned how your success
running the ball was the difference in the
ballgame, had to have been a difference on the
last touchdown past. Do you feel Georgia
came up maybe a little bit further in the box
there on that last play? Is that why you
decided to go deep?
COACH SABAN: Right, well, they did.
They actually -- when we were running the ball
early on, they were playing split safeties and we
were in slot formation most of the time. Even
though they were in an eight-man front of sorts, it's
not like when you play man-to-man and actually
put another guy in the box.
So they started playing an eight-man front
and actually putting another guy in the box, which
means they were playing single coverage with a
middle of the field safety with the two guys in the
slot. We were going to take a shot the first play of
that series. I said, let's try to take the clock and the
game, make a first down or two, and then take
one, and they kept playing that same thing, trying
to stop the run.
So it was a big play on third and 5- to get a
first down running the ball. We would have gone
for it on fourth down there I think for sure. Then we
took the shot and AJ made a great throw and Coop
made a great catch.

Play of the game!
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
A close second would be JW's stop of Gurley on 3rd and one. Did it on one leg too.
& a lot of people wanted to fire Nuss after the A&M game?

That was all yeldon. Great effort
Don't get me wrong, the second half was awesome but that first half of play calling was just poor IMO. Hopefully Nuss and CNS get a great plan together for ND but I was scratching my head in the first half. As one poster said in the big FAIL thread, they were loading the box, but the thing was everytime (almost) that we ran it EVEN with a loaded box we got at least 5+ yards anyway. We were running off the pass instead of passing off the run and it didn't work very well. Again, IMO
We haven't thrown the ball well against a good team all year. LSU, Aggies, and UGA was all avg passing at best. We ran the crap out of the ball though.
