Other than the end of the aTm game, I think we clearly got the best of the two.
Almost started a thread to say I am thankful four Nuss, then I saw this one.
I actually think Pease is a really good play caller. Driskell & the UF o-line are just god awful tonight. I want to see how Nuss looks in the big game. One thing about Coach Mac is that he knew how to call the big games (2011 title game & 2009 SECCG). I do think Nuss has improved his play calling over the course of the season.
No doubt we got the best! I'm trying to watch
Florida and can only imagine how their fans must feel. I'm in no way blaming Bp but Florida's O looks awful. Their line can't block, they can't run with any consistency and Driskel couldn't throw the ball in the ocean if he was sitting in a boat in the middle of it
Pease called a brilliant game vs LSU. That much I'm sure of. Not complaining about Coach Nuss by any stretch, however.
Bama has much better talent
Florida had to defer to chicanery to score a touchdown in the first half. That is just sad.
Don't get me wrong. I do like a little trickery from time to time...but if you have to rely on it as your only ability to score (at least in the 1st half), then you are doing offense wrong. I'd rather a consistent team that can move the ball well but score fewer overall points. As long as they are consistent, they can be efficient in sticking to a gameplan. Efficient teams can overcome shortcomings....trick play teams have to rely on luck and poor discipline of the opponent.
Man, its really showing here late.
No question. They are really weak at OL and qb.
May be a little harsh but I think driskell single handily costs them that game. The onside kick fiascos didn't help either. Pease nor Nuss can help that guy

While I agree driskell stunk it up , his O line was getting their butt handed to them on a silver platter.
So, Nuss isn't good at the end of that game? What about the players who failed to execute the pick on the last play? Better yet, by that rationale, what about Coach Saban and Coach Smart? They coach the defense that let JM run all over the field in the first quarter like it was backyard football. There's only so much a coach can do.
I think Saban kind of brainfarted his way through that last series against TAMU tbh. JMHO.

I think we all agree that there's no way a&m could've kept EL or TJY out of the endzone on three straight off-tackle runs, but what if that would've been stopped? Everyone would've said, "I can't believe we did something so predictable." Just like Coach Saban said, it's easy to second guess when the play was unsuccessful.
I've said it before to friends, if they beat us trying to run it in from the 6yardline on 1st and goal, I tip my hat to them.
You never want to get beat on your 2nd best pitch.
I agree wholeheartedly. I was just saying that it's not all on Coach Nuss and people that would say we lost that game because of him aren't looking at the big picture. The defensive coaches have just as much to do with the loss as any of the offensive coaches. Were they not calling the right defense??....or did a&m just execute better? It goes both ways.
plenty of blame to go around game wise. but the last offensive series, with a chance to win is where I was focused on exactly.
Did you catch a replay or something?
It's easy to second guess when you have a hurt QB and you have not passed the ball succesfully all day aside from one or two plays. We never even tried to establish a run game until it was too late. Watch the offense against UGA when we fell down 21-10 and try to justify the play calling against A&M with a straight face.

2 different games, 2 different teams. I'm not going to agree with the play calling at end of the TAMU game but there were other factors leading to the decision to throw it. 1) Yeldon had just fumbled it and Lacy had a concussion which showed on 2nd down. Also, AJ had just won a close one at LSU. Can't he do it again? Did you expect him to throw an int? No one did. If that play is centered a fraction later its almost unstoppable. I would have run the ball but it wasn't as obvious a decision as it seemed to most fans.
