    CoAch Nuss - great second half calls

    I know many of us have been critical of CDN, but he did a great job tonight, especially in the second half. The PA pass TD to Cooper was set up perfectly. I think he now knows what we have in the run game.

    On another note, Bama made a lot of mistakes - fumble at the goal line, INT on the best play, delay of game on the fake punt, not playing the UGA fake punt right, the blocked FG for a TD. The lost fumble. I think Bama could have easily won the game by 14+ without the mistakes, which makes the win even more impressive.

    Had we committed to the run like this against the Aggies then we would be undefeated.Id say coach Nuss learned from that game and it may well have been a blessing in disguise.Our O line lived up to the hype today.

    After the way he called the 3rd quarter tonight, I'm guessing he would like to have the opportunity to re-do the last drive against the Aggies.

    I agree with you about the 2nd half. He redeemed himself in my eyes because I was very frustrated with the first half calls to say the least.

    All the hitch passes to Cooper set up the long one. Of course, I was calling for the pass a bit earlier than it came. Honestly, when you have the best interior O Line in America, running the ball makes a lot of sense. Not a whole lot of genius there.

    Considering what Saban said coming out of half it may have been more Saban telling him this is what we are going to do now call it!

    This. Saban more than likely told him to run it down their throats.

    CoAch Nuss - great second half calls

    I was wondering why we went for two! That made the difference in the game. They couldn't stop it and CNS knew it, and CDN called a good second half!

    But what's impressive isn't just that we ran it, which was common sense, but that we ran it so much. CDN has had a tendency to get cute, but Bama just ran it up the guy over and over again. At one point we averaged 12 yards per carry for two TD drives.

    Obvious to anyone with eyes - Bama's O is so much better with #10 UNDER CENTER.
    Quick running plays get the back to the line SO much faster.
    Play action is MUCH MORE effective.
    Even the delay plays seem to go better.
    The O-line makes some of the shotgun and pistol runs go better in spit of the plays being so telegraphed.
    Seems our QB has just as much time dropping to pass from under center as he has from the gun.

    After all of AJ's success going back to last years Auburn's game and the last drive in the LSU game I believe it was hard to take the game out of AJ's hands and put it on the OL and RB's backs. But he did and it was the right decision and it worked last night.
