Not to knock on Bama but idk if you guys have the QB for it. Atleast when I think of how you guys looked like season. It does help to have a guy that can run so you have a few more options for the D to have to think about. But you probably could, because of how good every other spot is.
I wouldn't run it full time though at Bama, might run it for a drive or two to catch the D off guard. Maybe against A&M to run up the score which I wouldn't be against.
Exactly, and to suggest only inferior teams use it... HA!
Last I checked Tom Brady implements it from time to time for the pats, hardly an inferior team.
What's even more funny about that argument is the fact that these "inferior" teams bama has played against that run the HUNH have had a great amount of success. So if these "inferior" teams are beating bama and the mighty nick saban, well just what does that say about how mighty they are?
Why So Serious?
It's sun zu principle. You guys sound like whiney little bitches... Just because we don't play your way, we're cheating and taking the easy way out.
We're adapting. We're not gonna beat Saban in recruiting, so we will strike small and fast on the perimeter. That's why Beliema will fail. He is trying to play your football with lesser players. Yes, Auburn gets much better athletes than Arkansas... that's why we are doing this. You have to become progressive, not regressive. Chizik wanted to regress into 1980-2008 Auburn football... that would have killed the program for 10 years trying to rebuild. By going to the master inventor of the HUNH, we force everyone else to adapt. Saban and Beliema apparently adapt by whining.
Sun Zu basically said, when facing a superior force, strike small and fast and destroy their weaknesses. Never attack head on.
So by that theory, why should we try to play AU vs LSU 2007 football against you guys when we can beat you around the edges and wear you out?
Makes zero sense. Deal with it.
the falcons use it...
and will use it with
Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Stephen Jackson, Roddy White, Tony Gonzales, and Quizz Rodgers.... man all those players suck ass.
There are three types of people in this thread.
1) People who are trying to discuss the matter at hand.
2) People who are blindly ignoring the facts to try and defend the HUNH because their team runs it.
3) People who are trying to look like badasses by saying people should just deal with it. (Also ignoring the subject altogether).
If Bama could defend it, you never hear a word about it.
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
4) People that don't understand it so they think it is "cheap"
Ravens used it, Steelers do all the time vs Ravens, Peyton probably started it
See our games vs Clemson the last few years. They only get to run like 50-60 plays, panic when they're down, and end up having like 40 sec possessions in the 2nd half so we can just sit on the ball.
This^^^ answers your question CrimsonLife, end of discussion.
Why are you even concerned as it is? Nothing is going to change, if anything, football is beginning to be geared more toward this style of offense so I'd get used to it.
Yep. A team that has a good defense (which most of the top SEC schools have better than good defenses) and an offense that can control the clock are KILLERS to hurry up offenses.
Then their defense is exhausted because they have been on the field the whole game and the offense has no rhythm.
You people that are referencing professional teams are missing the point entirely. The college and pro games are drastically different. All professional teams are talented, so there really is no point in bringing that up.

Peyton manning runs it... Saints run it.....
Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
The point in bringing it up is to refute your claim that only teams with inferior talent use it....
Professional teams use it as a change of pace. They don't use it exclusively. College teams use it exclusively to negate a talent differential. The talent discrepancy in the pros is vastly minimal compared to that of the college game, making the HUNH less effective as an exclusive offense.
So pretty much, you are trolling every team that isn't Bama. Got it
Well maybe you should whip all your badass players into shape so that INFERIOR teams won't beat them off scheme alone. Why is that so hard to comprehend?
You think there is anything on this planet that you know that I don't? Please then professor, school me on football. I will run circles around your ass. Lets begin.
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
"While several NFL teams have begun utilizing the offense in various ways, many college football programs have utilized the no-huddle or hurry-up as a way to gain an advantage when lacking talent in comparison to the teams they are playing. One twist on this approach is that often a college team will hurry-up to the line of scrimmage and line up in a set formation. Based on what the defense is showing in terms of alignment, the quarterback has the option of calling the determined play at the line of scrimmage or stepping back and looking towards the sidelines where the head coach or an assistant will relay a better play to attack the coverage the defense is showing."
Do any of you watch football or is your subscription here just a way to deny being a homosexual to your friends? Bump for answers
3 out of 4 bro. I think we are ok. Once again, I'm referring to this matter in general, not in sense of how it affects Alabama.
We both know all kinds of stuff about a game we will never again play or get paid to let me know how to play. I feel useful.
You can argue that any scheme is used because of an inferior talent. You can say Bama has become a smash mouth running team because they lack the WR talent to pass the pall. You can argue the SEC has such great defenses because they don't have the offenses to challenge them. You can argue that Nebraska sucks in general. Just saying, every scheme is one team either trying to take advantage of the other team's weakness or trying to play away from your weakness. Nebraska will never recruit on the level that Bama is, so we had to go to a scheme that would allow lower rated guys to succeed.
PS. I don't agree with any of the examples I used, just saying things you can argue.
You alabama fans crying ITT disappoint me
You've lost like 3 games in three years and now the offense that one of those teams ran needs to be banned.
And stop with the injury angle please, your embarrassing yourself
