#7 is the point I believe is most correct. If we could have gotten pressure on JM he would not have been so damn accurate with his passes. We have to get some pressure on the QBs sometimes. The front line cannot depend on perfect secondary coverage every play.
Regarding this loss, as well as the LSU game, I still say we just played 2 games where the opposing QB had nearly flawless games. This just doesn't happen very often and it has shown on the scoreboard.
Agree totally on the top 3 and them losing a game between now and the end of the season. It's one thing to get to the top, it's another to stay there. Lot's of pressure and media attention will start coming their way.
I concur with your assessment. But, I wasn't dealing with issues outside of personnel.
I will take ALABAMA 99.9% of the time against ANY team with at least a month off for preparing, getting healed and rested for a football game with this staff. As matter of fact, if the opportunity presents itself, I predict ALA over Oregon by 17 points, at least.
I can assure you that we will develop and coach the best personnel groupings to match their speed and scheme. For the record, I AIN'T wearing any Crimson colored glasses.
BamaTrending, I didn't take it as a slight. I have harbored this feeling since the first game in Dallas. A few former football letterman and I have been discussing the when, NOT IF, the weaknesses of some of our personnel grouping might be exposed. Truthfully, a few teams have had the opportunity, but they have misfired for a few reasons. I am CERTAIN that the coaches see this when they review the film.
I just choose to withhold certain thoughts and pray.
I am feeling you. However, he is working with an incomplete tool set. Yet, he is smart as hell. They don't NEED to stop Oregon from scoring period. USC just needs to slow them down to every 3-4 series.
Remember: Oregon allowed USC to score 51 points!!!
I am NOT sure if I would have placed Jesse Williams in to block, unless it was 2nd down from the 2 yard line and inward. Otherwise, I would have run a formation with both Lacy and Yeldon from a Pro set..meaning I spread them out and get the safeties out of the box, Or I put Blake Sims into the game for either Yeldon, Lacy or a slot receiver, spread them out. I motion Blake Sims into the backfield either way. I run the ball every down with quick hitting power plays to the balanced side of the formation. The only pass I run is a miss direction play to the SLOT receiver going in motion to the weak side of the offensive formation on a quick hitch route or slant OR shuffle pass to Lacy, Blake or Yeldon against the flow to the weak side of the formation. I run either of these safe pass plays on 1st or 2nd down.
But, I ONLY pass ONCE!!! We ARE ALABAMA with a tremendous offensive line and 2 powerful RBs and an elusive Wildcat RB.
Solid post Booms, we'll see how it all shakes out.

Did you mean more difficult schedule this year or remaining? besides USC their schedule is pretty weak remaing! I agree their entire schedule for the year has been impressive!
Oregon has 2 top 15 teams and probably USC.
KSU has Baylor and Texas both of which could cause trouble.
Notre Damn at the Coliseum, I think the Irish luck runs out there.
Win the next 3 and see what happens, if we don't make it to the BCS championship then I hope ND wins out and we play them in the Sugar, #3 vs #4 would be nice!!
