Yea, I'm not sure but logic seems to point out that more plays would cause more injuries. So does a lot of things. The game of football is to adapt to new systems. When the option came out defenses had to adapt to it. When the forward pass was started people had to adapt. Same way for the multiple defenses. The offenses had to adapt to beat it.
I agree with all of that. You are the first fan of a team who runs the HUNH to acknowledge this. You just went up 1,000 cool points in my book. Lol
I agree and most everyone else does also but Auburn fans keep bringing this stuff to the main board trying to act like Saban is wrong when all he was doing is stating facts after a reporter asked him about It. Trying to 1 up big bad Saban all the time gets old...
I mean what is that getting out of it? Bringing proof that makes no sense at all.
Try getting the defensive injuries on the opposite team of the No huddle offense. Same with Whisky It's not just About the offense.
This is true, but using a team like Oregon isn't going to yield the same results as a team like AU. As I mentioned earlier, the PAC 12 (outside of SC and Stanford) and BIG 12 don't play physical defense like the SEC week in and week out.
The talent and physicality on both side's of the ball, is what separates the SEC from other conferences. Using teams that play in weaker defensive conferences is going to show completely different results.
100% agree.. That's kinda what I was thinking but in a dumber way.
Usually HUNH teams are based on more speed than physicality. Same thing with a 3-4 LB compared to a 4-3 LB. Should we cap the weight these guys can be because them getting bigger causes more injuries. Of course not. Instead the other team either will counter to make those players hurt them or compensate and get their own players bigger. Same thing on the HUNH. If you can't seem to get lined up in time maybe you should spend more time on lining up faster to make sure you are in position.
That's why I don't agree with why the HUNH is an issue at all. It is changing the game. Lots of things do. Either adapt or fail.
All of that is true, but neither of those issues are the reason why I don't like the HUNH.
If the defense has enough time to line up...no-one has an issue. I don't care anyways but that's all anyone wants is to have some parameters that give the defense that opportunity. Saban hasn't called out anyone's system, only suggested we keep an eye on things to make sure we don't turn things into such a stupid pace that the actual fundamentals of the game are no longer important.
There are so many people running these systems that it is rather easy to figure out these days. Find another Cam, we might get worried...otherwise, the hurry up poses little threat to us anyways.
Agree, but that still doesn't acknowledge the skewed stats from the OP that came from CFB Matrix. Anyone can build statistics to show what they want to prove. That's my only point.
Personally, I don't understand why Saban won't run the HUNH with our talent on offense. Bama is the deepest we've ever been at all the skill positions and a QB that can run it effectively.
We marched right down the field on LSU last year in the two minute offense. Did the same against aTm before our OC went full retard. There aren't too many teams that can match up with our OL.
Edit: Getting lined up isn't normally an issue in the SEC. However, in the PAC 12, the officials rush the ball up to the LOS which helps Oregon get the snap off every 15 seconds after the play.

we sprinkle in a fast paced offense here and there. The problem with committing to the HUNH all the time is that a couple of 3 and outs and your defense could be in trouble. We play to our defense and manage the game on offense. If we don't turn the ball over or shoot ourself in the foot by being stupid, we win 95% of the time.
Definitely shouldn't be solely a HUNH offense, but doing it a drive or two each quarter of half (excluding two min offense) would keep a defense on their heels.
no that's too dangerous
Bama's already dangerous.
congrats but do you have an answer to the question...ho does running more plays lead to less injuries? I'm interested in hearing about this phenomenon.
Just stop. Did you watch Oregon/LSU? LSU nearly killed them and Oregon wasn't in "better shape". You guys blew your load in the first 12 minutes against us and held on for dear life.
There is no team in CFB better conditioned than Bama. Fact!!
You're not even making sense. You suggest HUNH leads to less injuries based on those stats. You seem to have conceded that more plays equal more injuries but now you are even arguing that fatigue also leads to more injuries(another symptom of HUNH). So I ask again, how does HUNH lead to less injuries if it leads to 1) more plays and 2) more fatigue? Please explain this phenomenon.
alright, I guess LSU was better conditioned than aTm as well...and we were better conditioned than LSU. Winning always means better conditioned. You have sound reasoning.
I'm loving life. You sound like a real winner. Enjoy the beat down on Sept 14th.
Cliche insecure homer idiocy is at an all time high ITT
