Been trolling over on the aggies message boards tonight. If it isn't kosher I'm sure Earle will let me know
think our offense matches up really well with Bama. Could be wrong but heres why:
Bama's DEs are very slow and honestly not that impressive at the pass rush. JFF will be able to run around them quite a bit I think if they try to do what LSU and Ole Miss did to us. JFF honestly thrives on the blitz so bringing extra guys probably isn't a good solution for them. They will have to have at least 1 spy, probably 2 to fully contain JFF - and if they do that they open up a lot of ability to pass... Which leads to the second point.
Their secondary is their weakness. I really think we will have a good amount of success passing on them. If they take out LBers and get out of the base formation I think we may get a good running game going.
In their base formation I cant imagine us being successful running on them no matter the offense we have. I think we match up better against Bama's defense than we did LSU's or Florida's.
The issue is that Bama's offense is going to be hard for us to stop I think. They are just so balanced and we struggle through the air and AJ is such a good passer. I will say something positive I see is that AJ seems a lot like Tyler Russell as a passer, but obviously Bama's rush game and just Oline in general is much better. This is where the game will probably be decided, in my opinion.WINNER: A&M 38
