We knew in August that it would be hard for this bama defense to be as dominant as 2011. Bama fans predicted that the offense might have to lead the team. Well, in the last 2 weeks the bama offense has not done well. Way too many 3 and outs, will not commit to the run, fumbles, etc. Its easy to blame the def, but in this day offenses will make some plays against our def. The bama offense needs to step up and help the def. The def has given us chances, in many cases the offense hasnt capitalized. Rtr
As bad as we played in the 1st quarter they wouldn't have given up 20 pts if our offense had kept the ball longer. Simple as that.
I am probably in the minority here but is seems that alot of folks on this board are blaming nuss and the staff look we gave up 20 points in the first quarter but only 9 in the second half the proper adjustments were made on the defensive and offensive side of the ball to get us in position to win what about yeldon fumbling and nuss may have called the pass play on 4th down but it was up to AJ and the offense to execute the play bottom line is at the end of the day the aggies did what they had to do and we turned the ball over 3 times and that was the difference in the game when yeldon fumbled we had control of the game at that point reminds me of lsu last week when the we also had control of that game at that point as well
Its hard to overcome a team like A&M when you spot them three touchdowns at the beginning of the game.
Agreed, but bama got the ball first and after each a&m score and did nothing with it. A&m scored 20 before the bama offense made their second first down. Put a drive or 2 together early and give the defense a chance to figure things out. Wasnt this the same A&M defense that gave up 50ish to la tech? The bama offense also got the ball twice in the 3rd after defensive stops. Put 1 drive together then and we can take the lead. Instead, the bama offense scored 3 until they got desparate late. 17 pts vs a wide open offensive team through 3.5 quarters just isnt enough. Rtr
First down and goal with four minutes left on the 6 yard line with the best offensive line in cfb. We run the ball one time. For some reason this offense just stops running the ball at times and i can't understand why.
Agreed. Maybe not committing to the run is the underlying problem. Sure didnt help last week either when we avg 7 yds per carry but scored only 7 in second half.
But last series aside, our off scored 0 in q1 and 3 in q3. This was not a top defensive team we were playing. I know we all want a shot to win it all, but why would this bama offense fare better vs oregon? I seriously doubt 24 wins that game either, and giving up only 24 to oregon would be a really good def performance.
