yep. average fan's viewpoint of what a good offense looks like is basically "how many yards can they throw for a game"
On the other hand Bama's offense is pretty much unstoppable without the need to even throw. playaction off it but they will pound anyone. 3 of these linemen will be for sure 1st rounders. Possibly 4.
Fluker is a top 3 OT in the country, Warmack is the top OG in the country, and CyKo is an absolute beast at OT. Not even mentioning Jones who is the returning Outland trophy winner.
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
they are amazing no doubt but just not sure the most prolific offense in the country YET ..by the end of the year maybe
I'm scared you big e-tough guy.
Going to get your e-friends to e-beat me up?
That's the difference. If you get down big you have to throw. S*** happens throughout the season. Who's leading that two minute drill? PA isn't working against the nickel.
Good offenses do what they do.
Great offenses do everything.
I was mainly speaking about LSU's OL, it's legit.
I agree on Oregon. But, did Ark St really have 500+ yds on them? They better fix that by Nov.
No way a bama fan should have to resort to e toughness remarks with their tradition. Your a disgrace.
my bad , yeah they are def legit ; not sure what happened in the Oregon game as it almost seems like they played all of their reserves the whole second half
2009, 2011, 2012 Champs
Oh yeah that gm got ugly real quick, lol.
I wanna see Arky's offense against Bama in a couple weeks, too.
agreed although dont think the Ark def can stand up to that Ol ; not sure anyone in college football can ?
Over the last several years, we've had a really good 2 minute offense. Ocassionally, we'll run it in the middle of the game and move the ball rather easily.
I may be off base here but this bama dynasty reminds me of how awesome UM was early 2000s. TOSU smacked them in the mouth in that champ game. Don't believe for a second that a hungry team with a great defense can't do the same.
bama doesnt get down
Yep. Sometimes I feel like our team is disrespected by most of the nation. Some of that may have to do with some of our fans. If you asked most coaches what type of offense they preferred, I think they would take the efficient, control the clock, wear down the opponent offense. Scoring a lot of points is good but if you don't have a very good defense to keep your team in the game when your offense is down then you're in trouble.
Who are you I want to remember you when we beat them like a new born child
Amazes me every year how many teams choose the "fools gold" of these pinball offenses and no defense. Alabama plays a different style than Oregon and Ok State. Who has the better offense? Well that would depend on who you are playing. Oregon folded like a tent against allbarn and LSU and Oregon would throttle Ok State so they should not be a pert of this conversation anyway.
USC plays basically the same offense as Bama with the emphasis more on passing than brutalizing the opposition. They are both still prostyle offenses. In the national perspective USC's O is great because they throw it all over the lot and Bama's O is pedestrian because we don't. Somehow Bama just keeps on winning.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Must be a Alabama thing
Not many beat new born children
Bama has a good offense, they run great behind a great OL. Play action pass is setup with the running game. This type of offense is utilized when your defense gives you short fields also like Bama. 2 of Bamas scores in the 1st quarer came with great field position inside the 50. Your scoring avg looks good this way. There's nothing wrong with playing to your strengths. Bama play great D, controls the ball with a good running game, throwing in a few passes to keep defense honest, I like it. Only question Bama will have is what happens if we are behind 14 points, granted ghats a big if
AJ McCarron just won the BCSNC Offensive MVP award.
He won this against what many were calling the best secondary in the entire country.
He also had the 2nd highest QB rating in the SEC (147) behind only Tyler Wilson (148) during 2011.
Bama has tons of good receivers.
I'm not a statistic nerd but last year Bama was almost right at 50/50 as far as passing yardage and rushing yardage for about 430yds per game. The can't play catch up question is for the triple option teams. If Bama gets behind by 14 they will not panic and will do what they do. Last year against both UF and Ole Siss Bama gave up long TD passes right out of the chute and if UF hooks up on that throw in the endzone in the 1st Qtr, Bama's down 14-3. Ultimately the outcome of that game was not in question. Bama can throw it as well as they need to. This is not the wing T.
Mccarron is merely a game manager stop it.He doesn't have to do anything but feed of playaction which leaves gapping holes in the opposing opponents secondary caused by them trying to stop the run at all cost.He is nothing special and neither are your receivers.Your running game however is very special.It's so special that it will give the illusion that a scrub like Mccarron is actually a great QB.Dude is a game manager no more no less.
Dude's a scrub like McChicken I mean Mcelroy the other game manager.
Bama are the 49ers and USC are the Patriots.
Best comparison I can make.
did you even watch the BCSNC? AJ dropped perfect balls all over LSU, threw on every 1st down, and set up the run with the pass.
AJ will get drafted. much higher than you think. he's looked at as about the #5 QB for the '14 draft. ~about a round 3-4 type player
He went 23-24 for 234 and 0 TD's. He didn't exactly light it up.
