    I agree! The Red Zone offense has been impeccable!!

    I don't know how it could be anything below an A.

    A+ for breaking the tradition of having a low scoring offense. Very explosive offense at Bama right now.

    I gotta say A, as well. I can't see anything lower than an A- at worst. As Tony Barnhart said tonight, "Bama being able to just pitch and catch it with THAT running game just ain't fair!"

    Right now I would give him an A but the truth is the two biggest tests for the offense (on schedule right now) are upcoming. We'll know very soon if we have a quality OC.

    Re: Rate Doug Nussmeier at the halfway point

    For me our offense will not have to continue scoring 35+ pts/game for him to keep an A. I doubt we score that against LSU. But playcalling in big game situations will be what I'm looking at. So far it hasn't mattered who we've played he calls very aggressive plays.

    For the first time in my life I'm gonna say I like this offense better than the wishbone of the 1970's for me that is saying a lot.

    I like how we're able to pass the ball without looking like an elk, or should I say an elephant ice skating. We look very comfortable chunkin' the ball around the sand lot. Stop our running game, okay, no big deal. We'll throw the ball five straight times. No biggie.

Had I heard it from anyone else, I would have laughed. After watching the passing offense this year, I'm inclined to think there's something to it. Whether what I was told was an exaggeration, or they trust AJ more or not, I don't know. I do know that, given time, the ball's going out to secondary receivers more often...
    Sounds like how I coach Jr. High QBs. Not how I would expect a college O to work.

    I'd give a solid A-... Better overall than expected, but still has been a little inconsistant.

    B+ up from a B after the Tenn game.

    We're still allowing opponents to get to McCarron too much.
    And I want to see more TDs in red zone situations.
    If I see improvements in those areas I'll upgrade him to an A.

    I'm sure he's on edge of his seat waiting for feedback from an old curmudgeon like me :-)
