    Re: Faster tempo offense question. Causing confusion?

    These offenses don't have a flow, the play is called from the sidelines AFTER the defense has lined up. The play can be called down from the box after the coverage has been seen from above, after the quarterback has snapped his head, jerked his arms, leaned back, walked forward, anything he can do to make it look like the ball is being snapped. There's too much competitive advantage for the offense in college football now, the coaches get to see the defense before hand and call a play from the sideline that automatically diagnoses it's weakness. Can you tell me how recruiting will change that?

    Even the NFL which has radios in the QB's helment is less crazy than what college football has become. The NFL has also put an end to much of the simulated snaps that Peyton Manning loved so much.

    The NFL knows that 63-50 games are not good for the game, so it's not clear why some college football fans insist that these type scores are the wave of the future.

    If this is true, why is Alabama not running this offense to gain advantage?

Not sure why this team came out so heavy and flat. Reminded me 100% of the Utah game of 09. Just wasn't ready to bring it at kick off. These slow starts are a real killer. I think the D is fine. Just need the offense to start scoring some points early and stop turning the ball over.

    Sure, we have had some trouble getting off the field on D, but the D did enough to give our offense multiple chances to win the game last night and the offense did not come through. The bottom line is you can't go 3 and out over and over against a team with an offense as good as A&M and expect to win.
    I agree. The offense's lack of production really put the defense behind the eight-ball early on. Three and out followed by the interception to start the game didn't allow us to set the tone or make adjustments after A&M had set the tone. The defense had to keep running back onto the field against a frenetic attack and a quarterback that wears you out trying to cover the field.

    Three safties instead of three CB's were a problem.

    So, we lose one game and we have to remake our defense, change the offense, recruit different type of players, change coaching philosophy, and overhaul the college rules?

    LOL! You'd think we'd have to have a bit broader base of evidence, wouldn't you?

    We've been talking about the college rules for several years. It didn't start yesterday.

    I tend to agree. I think we know that CNS's defense is predicated on stopping the run first with the 3 down linemen taking on the blocks to free up the LBs. It has proven to be effective against run based offenses, but apparently has its limitations in the pass rush. It might be a situation where we need to give up some size to get some speed since it looks as though the spread type offense is taking over college football.

    Not getting much airplay is it? And offenses are getting faster!

    Not even though. I think our defense has been reeling since the Ole Miss game. LSU and TAMU finished them. Truth is they need a two week rest.
