    Re: DJ Fluker told Jarvis Jones we are running this way.

    Pretty cool in retrospect that he was able to tell supposedly the best defensive player in the SEC where we were running and Jones couldn't stop it.


    But, can someone help me understand why Fluker would do that in the first place? I mean, it's not like we were up by 30 points and the game was over. That was a dog fight to the end. We were 4 yards away from losing that game, and we failed to get that last 1st down when we really needed it to close out the game.

    Why would you tell a defender that?

    This is awesome, and I agree.
    He and Lacy both played possessed...I know the whole team played awesome, (and I'm not overlooking efforts of others like Williams, Mosely, Vogler, Clinton-Dix, Jones, Yeldon and Cooper particularly in the second half), but Lacy & Fluker both stood out to me in how they played the whole game.
    Total attitude and purpose, all game.

    We'll be talking about that second half O line dominance 20 years from now.

    It sounds like he's just telling them now. That way he doesn't have to worry about his stance.

    If you were the defender, would you necessarily believe him?? (LOL)

    If ye've ever played the game, ye may understand. Seriously though, it's part of the game. In games I've played, we did it to them and yes, they did it to us. It's really a part of every game.. the trash talk in the trenches. Especially when you've proven a point. You keep doing it. Football really IS a game of wills.

    I wonder if he has been doing that all season since the Western Kentucky game? He may have interpreted our coaches telling him that he might as well tell the opposing team to mean do just that...

    I think it was great of Jarvis Jones to admit this about Fluker, a lesser person would have steered clear of comments like this. I have a higher degree of respect for him as a result.

    Re: DJ Fluker told Jarvis Jones we are running this way.

    Bama did what many say is the correct thing when facing a dominant defender - run right at them. Some guys work better in that situation. Some don't. The way Bama's offensive line played Saturday, Jarvis Jones didn't play well when 42 and 4 ran at him.

    Re: DJ Fluker told Jarvis Jones we are running this way.

    This was a standard technique employed by Tom Osborne's Huskers back in the 80s when Nebraska had dominant O lines. They would tell the defense where a run was going and dared them to stop it. Most of the time the defense could not. If the O line does this three or four times and the defense cannot stop the run even when they know where it is going, they'll just give up. Very effective way to neutralize the D if you can pull it off.

    The way Georgia held up against the run, Fluker could have diagrammed the play for them in their huddle and they still couldn't have stopped it.
